SEO tips: I've launched a new business! 😱
So I've launched an online store.
Of my own.
With my wife.
And let me tell you, it's a next level thrill.
I know how to market websites. I don't know how to run an online store.
But I'm learning.
This is my first foray into e-commerce.
Everything from product sourcing, licensing, product shots, marketing and getting it done in general.
It's all happening!
You know those 'gold mine' rollercoaster rides? The ones that have you careening recklessly in the darkness with sprays of water, perilous falls and seatbelts that feel just a little loose?
Yeah, that's what it feels like right now.
I get told on a regular basis that as an SEO expert, I should be killing it in the online space.
But that's the thing: I know how to market a website that is lacking in visibility and needs more traffic (and sales).
People come to me where they know how to set it all up but don't know how to market their site.
And this is how it all comes together.
But when you're the one setting it up AND doing the marketing, well, that's a different story.
The good thing is that I've had a landing page and a semi-active site online for a few months now.
So this means it's already ranking and getting traffic.
Now I need to follow my own advice and take things up to a whole new level.
It's surreal: I get to do whatever I want, without seeking client approvals or deaing with delays with developers.
But I also have the burden of knowledge: I know too much and will likely overthink a lot of things.
There's also pressure to perform. How can I, as an SEO expert, do this or that? I can't afford to make mistakes!
So it's now or never.
This is the time to shine and make it happen.
I'm glad we're doing this though. I've seen other SEO folks diversify from client work to running their own things with some encouraging results.
So let's see how this all goes.
I am resilient so I will keep at this until I start printing money.
Join me on this journey and let's get this naan bread!
