Last year I left my job to start my own business. The job I left? Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for a distribution company. I left behind a secure job, and excellent salary to pursue my passion. The business I started? Fitness Savvy - the UK's first dedicated fitness price comparison website.
When I started, I knew nothing about link building, SEO, content writing or building a website. I learned the hard way; by hiring people who said they could deliver, but didn't. I lost money, so decided I would try doing it myself. That way, at least if the work wasn't delivered, it wouldn't cost me anything. My philosophy is to be honest and transparent. I want people to understand what they need to do to achieve their goals. I just wish I had met people like that at the start of my journey.
It's difficult to know where to start. That's why, with my hourlies, I will always provide as much valuable advice on the subject as I can - for free - to the people I work with. This way, they can better understand their own needs before committing to purchases.
Writing - have contributed to top sites including Lifehack, Inquisitr, Popsugar, MSN, and many more - on a range of subjects. Primarily, my writing centres on health and fitness, but I can write in a variety of styles, covering a range of subjects.
Guest Posts - I understand how tricky it is to secure guest posts on authoritative sites, so I am here to help others build quality content, and get links from websites with actual traffic. produce in-depth, well-researched content, and build links for their site.
Link Building - if you want links in directories, relevant forum discussions, guest posts, regular blogs, on a range of sites, I can do it. If there are good reasons why I think link building might not work, I am happy to share those reasons so you can fix them before committing to a purchase.
SEO - on page SEO has changed a lot over the years. I spent a lot of time trying to cram exact keyword phrases into titles, headers, ALT tags etc. This no longer works. I employ strategies to ensure your on page SEO does what it needs to do. Again, if I have any issues with what you're trying to achieve, I will discuss it with you before pressing ahead with a project.
Song Writing - this one is simple. I will retain 100% copyright on any song that I compose, as default. Any other arrangements will need to be discussed. That said, I will still write a song to a brief, for a specific topic, and if needed record, produce and master it.
Financial Services - I am more keen on setting up things such as pricing models in Excel, stock forecasting tools - that kind of thing. If you want a model to perform a specific task, I will likely be able to help.
