I’m Amy. SEO Manager based in Manchester, with over 6 years experience in SEO and Digital Marketing.
Starting out as a Search Executive back in 2014, I began learning the basics of SEO and link building whilst completing a level 3 apprenticeship in Social Media Management for Business.
My first week in the industry really was one to remember. And that’s besides the fact that day two was fancy dress!
I experienced a week filled with code-words, acronyms and phrases I couldn’t have even dreamt of hearing in a sentence.
I mean come on… DA, PPC, MOZ, GA, Ahrefs?!
Next thing I knew, I was being told we we’re trying to avoid being hit by penguins…
But, Over Five Years On…
I’ve spent the last six+ years being influenced by some of the best in the industry. Not only Neil Patel and Michael Martinez, but colleagues too.
I’ve met some of the most amazing people over the way, learnt from the very best. And they are the reason I am where I am today.
STARTING THIS VERY BLOG.
After completing my apprenticeship in Social Media, whilst being a full-time ‘SEO’ (and link builder!). This gave me the opportunity to learn as much as I could about the industry and I even dipped my toe into a few different areas.
Then I took an even bigger risk… being offered a job as ‘Digital Marketer’ at a digital agency in Manchester city centre was pretty hard to refuse.
So I went for it.
I spent hours researching, testing and implementing different strategies and ways of thinking – it was the only way. And it paid off.
I loved it.
Organic social, paid social, email marketing, paid search advertising.
And of course, SEO.
And now, I specialise in SEO, with a holistic understanding of the industry as a whole.
But that’s what this industry is… It’s fast paced. And challenging.
