spent 3 years devouring every piece of internet marketing info i could often to the point of delirium, paralysis by analysis, etc.
6 months ago an opportunity presented itself to handle SEO for someone and that has led to acquiring 3 more for a total of 4 paying clients monthly...
1 in south carolina
1 in california
1 in florida
& 1 in rome (italy, not georgia)
i am a member of seomoz, warriorforum, blackhatworld forums to name a few.
obviously i am new here, hence the intro.
because each of my 4 clients all want different customized plans, i am now forced to put into practice all the great stuff i have been learning about and i am now running social media campaigns, doing all kinds of on-page seo webmastering, off-page seo linkbuilding, creating blogs with optin boxes and email campaigns through aweber...
and it is all such a blast....i really really really LOVE all things InetrnetMarketing and i'm really just gettin' started. i have been searching my whole life (37 years) for the one "career" i could be passionate about and i now know i have found it.
I will never work for anyone as an employee ever again. EVER! and just to show you all how quickly things can change....
8 months ago i had just been evicted, my car was repo'd, i maxed out every credit card i owned on IM products, had my full-time job cut back to part-time and had to move back in with my folks with my tail between my legs....
today i have wheels, a nice apartment, zero debt, i have no boss, and i am doing what i love and it wasn't too long ago that i had seriously contemplated suiсide.
the moral of the intro/story... this internet game is a raging torrent of cash and anyone can completely revamp their lifestyle in just a few months time if you just dig in and dont give up.
previous to this intro i had never left any intro on any site probably b/c what i would have had to say at the time might have been too negative, but now i am all about building relationships that are win-win, making money, and helping others.
this really is the strangest life i have ever known.
