I wasn’t always a solopeneur – or a media buyer – even though I have been making a living off the internet since 2008.
You see, in 2006 I turned to the internet, thinking I was going to be rich within months.
Fortunately, some threw me a lifeline – an Irish web developer wanted some writing done for a series of personal projects. Over time, he would become my mentor about all things relating to websites.
When we eventually parted ways, I was hired by a nonfiction ghostwriting agency in Florida, USA. Writing mostly ebooks, I was given access to “research materials” for each project – which ranged from ebooks by competitors to advanced video courses.
I was fortunate – I learned a lot. I learned about social media marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Social media Optimization, Website security, Google Adwords, Facebook Ads, CPA marketing, and more.
Over time I would move on to writing blog posts, articles, product descriptions, social profiles, and more. Some clients started requesting more than just writing – they wanted me to manage advertising, social media platforms, do content planning,web design, and funnel setups.
And then, to top it all off, I did a course in media buying – mostly aimed at Facebook ads and Google Adwords. However, due to recent – and upcoming- changes on these platforms, I no longer focus on them. Instead, I use the knowledge gained and apply it to push advertising, mostly for CPA marketing.
I keep expanding my skill set – not only for the benefit of my own projects, but also to be more useful to my clients and readers.
Eventually I found myself in a position where my skill set allowed me to make the transition from being a freelance worker to being a solopreneur…
So instead of helping clients on individual projects, I now try to make myself useful by sharing what I know. Plus of course running paid advertising behind the scenes.
Thanx for visiting.
All the best
