For years I have been dreaming about starting a blog of my own in the Internet Marketing niche. Many things have been in my way, but I do not want to blame anything else other than my own fears and apprehensions.
I’m over them. Now is the time to get started.
This will not be a blog only about how much money I make online, nor only about how someone else can do so. The purpose of this blog is to help others overcome their fears, stop them from procrastinating, and also help them avoid doing the same mistakes I’ve done. It’s a blog about enthusiasm, addopting a “can do” attitude, and taking action.
I would also like to bring a fresh perspective on SEO and Online Marketing, especially in my own country, but as well around the globe, although that might get tricky since Brian Dean and Neil Patel already covered up all the subjects for the next 10 years or so. Heh’…
SEO 2015+ is more or less about good marketing and networking, so I will be covering these subjects too.
I’m not really sure how this is going to go, as of what will I write, how will I write, or how will I be original, but I’m willing to hit the wall face front.
As for my expertise… For the past 4 years I’ve been learning everything I could about SEO and IM all by myself, and this year I’ve started slowly applying it. One thing led to another, and I now work as an in-house SEO at one of the biggest e-commerce companies here in Romania.
I don’t make a fortune, actually, I laughed hard at one of Neil’s blog posts on The Search Engine Journal where he mentioned that the avarage yearly SEO salary is about $76000 as of Indeed.com. I roughly make $150 each month, part time, but that’s good for me, and I am very grateful that I have the opportunity to work with this amazing team and gain some experience.
The reason I’m working part time is because I’m also caught up in many other online projects, but mainly because of my music studies, which I highly intend to finish.
Niche Site Project 3.0
As some of you probably know already, I have applied for Niche Site Project 3.0 over at NichePursuits.com.
For those of you who don’t know what Niche Pursuits or Niche Site Project (NSP) is, I will make a brief introduction here.
NichePursuits is a website owned by Spencer Haws (the little man in the image, ain’t he cute?).
Some years ago, Spencer learned how to create small websites on different market niches, and sell specific products on those websites to earn affiliate commissions. He then started a blog of his own, and publicly shared how he build a niche website step by step. The most important part was ranking it high in the search engines.
The blog took off, and we’re now at number 3. In-between these projects, Spencer shared a lot of other useful content, and about 15% of everything I know comes from this site. That is a huge amount, considering the information overload bombarding us these days.
This is my application video for NSP3.

Like this post, the video above is the first video I ever shot. It took me quite some time. I think I had about 45 minutes of bloopers taped, but eventually I was satisfied with it. Notice how after the first half I start talking faster to be able to get it under 3 minutes. After I sent the video to a friend of mine for a review, he only said “Dude ! That fridge ! LoL !”. So I found that satisfying as well, and I posted the video.
I am very grateful to be able to apply for this project, and hopefully, I will be able to work closely with one of the 3 niche site building masters, Spencer, and his two employees, Perrin and Jake.
I sure do hope I win this competition !
