How To Sell Yourself As A Client

ShareTweet Here’s a bit of advice for those of you looking for someone to help you out with your online marketing: Don’t be such a complete asshat. For some of you, this is easier said than done (at least judging by some of my recent encounters) but try, please. Here’s Bill O’Reilly in case you aren’t sure exactly what an asshat is. Over the past few years I’ve learned that there are quite a few warning signs that tell me that no matter how much money this guy is waving around, I don’t want him as my client.

And the winner of #SEScrapmas is…..

ShareTweet The lovely Joanna Butler with her ridiculously crappy clothes pegs! In fact Joanna won hands down on the votes, pretty much 90% of you agreed that clothes pegs is a pretty crap Christmas present. So Joanna you are the winner of the #SEScrapmas competition and you will recieve a full conference pass to SES London 2011, whoop whoop! Ultimate Crappy Xmas gift – “the clothes pegs” On a different note, it was pretty funny how many comments and tweets we had objecting to the “Search Tower” lego set being a crap gift, aww all the lego fans (including my hubby). Lastly, thank you to everyone that tweeted, facebooked and voted. Until next year…

Who’s got the best “crappest” xmas gift – YOU choose.

ShareTweet Wow, now that’s a dodgy and gramatically incorrect title if there ever was one. So sorry I’m so late in posting the finalists for the #SEScrapmas competition . Turns out Wednesday (which was the deadline) was actually yesterday, days kind of blur when you are on maternity leave. The other day I walked out in my slippers, have also found my house keyes in strange places, you get the drift – I’m “two sandwiches short of a picnic” at the moment. Anywho, thanks to everyone that entered the competition and hellped us spread the word, we had some cracking coverage and entries. We had so much fun hearing some of the stories and seeing the pictures of your “crap” [...]

And no greater love can an SEO have to give, than a free conference pass to one of the hottest search events of the year. Yeah,.. that’s right.

More to follow on party details later) Now; we Chicks don’t just give our goodies away. Oh-no! You have to work for them.  So we thought it would be great to put on a little festive competition to give YOU [...]

Find A Mentor (Or Some Mentos)

ShareTweet Along with the list of skills that you need to possess in order to be a good SEO, I’d like to add the following: Knows how to find a good mentor. I’ve been in the industry for enough years that I do think that, for the most part, I know what I’m doing. I know what’s going on, I can adapt to industry changes very quickly, and I feel confident that the advice that I give is valid and worthwhile. However, I’m not stupid enough to believe that I can’t be wrong, which is why I am so fond of having mentors. No matter how much experience you have, someone else has more of it, and someone else has [...]
