For over two years, ever since leaving Confused.com in 2011, I’ve considered going self-employed as a full-time SEO freelancer. However, the timing never quite seemed right. But on Friday just gone, I worked my last day at Box UK, which could be my last day in employment for a while. Yep… I’ve taken the plunge. I’m now officially a freelancer – full-time self-employed.
My family have been a big inspiration. My parents have been self-employed for decades, running their own IT recruitment agency, a Spanish rental property business and my dad is also a landlord more locally. I guess you could say that I want to follow in their footsteps.
So… if you’d like to work with me then please let me know. There’s just a brief bit of info about it on this site for now, but soon I will have a separate website for the freelance side of things: MorganOnlineMarketing.co.uk (at the moment it just redirects to SEOno, effectively sending you in an infinite loop… but it’ll be its own site soon).
It’s also pertinent to mention here, as it means that I’ll probably be updating SEOno less often from now on, especially for the next few months, while I get things going. The goal for SEOno was to publish one post per month, and I reckon I can still hit that.
