Career change is a slow process but worth the wait
Fear is a funny thing — it’s both an impediment and a motivator.
This is very true in my case the motivating factor far outweighs the impeding nature of fear. Changing careers is a major life event and one not to be taken lightly.
To date I’ve spoken about SEO in particular but also I’ve mentioned that attention to detail is vital to success. So far this week in a bid to increase traffic to my site I’ve visited many blogs leaving comments and picking up tips. Matthew Woodward at matthewoodward.co.uk and seogears.com have been particularly useful.
Getting the word out there is not easily, getting to grips with analytics and keywords are proving priceless in my progress. I’ve even learnt a bit of code and how to paste this directly into the CSS of my site. Learning more HTML and SEO skills are going to be pivotal in making my change. I intend to go to on a course to look at those things in more detail. If anyone knows of a good one either online or in the Sheffield, UK area then please let me know.
Once I have google analytics set up I can target audiences and find out which social media forms are most relevant to my niche. Changing careers and unlocking my fears has to be taken slowly and one step at a time but this week I feel as though I’ve turned a corner. I feel as though I’m slowly pointing in the right direction.
