My Story (the quick version)
I’ve been working online for five years and left full time education in 2011 on a quest to become a real entrepreneur. At that time I had around 40 affiliate websites - all of which were targeted by a major anti-government hacking organisation. As a result, my little green shoots of a business turned to ash. I remember it clearly, logging on to my computer and seeing everything gone. I felt like the ground had disappeared and I was falling through space. As you can imagine, I lost a lot of confidence and a lot of money - my business had literally been hacked to death.
So, I had a decision to make. What the heck do I do? As I could no longer afford to gamble money on advertising and no longer had any websites to push traffic to; I decided to start afresh and take the optimisation route. I put £30 on a domain and hosting and using just a handful of the now countless optimisation techniques I know now, built a simple WordPress blog, which In it’s first month turned over in excess of £1,500. It was amazing considering I did no advertising and didn’t have any product. I've have been studying websites and optimisation ever since and still have an insatiable urge to continue the process of learning.
It’s safe to say that optimisation changed my life. While keeping my new sites going and improving, I decided to pursue my passion for design. However, I soon realised that design alone wasn’t enough to keep me happy. I was constantly frustrated by the lack of effective design in the market place, so decided it was time for me to start sharing my hard-won secrets. This website and youngmarketer.net are my platforms for sharing and helping you explore ways to get more from your sites.
