So it’s been a very long time since I updated this blog, but for all you diehard IamRofe fans out there, the wait is finally over.
I thought I’d give a quick round up of what’s been going on before I divulge into this post.
End user sale of a domain, used the funds from sale to reinvest in more domains. Decide to wait to till January for job hunt as wanted to spend time with family that had come from overseas.
Started DailySnaps.co.uk– taking one photo every day from my life and uploading it.
Got one of my affiliate sites ranking well for a high traffic term. Not converting as well as hoped and am still working on conversion optimisation (I smell another blog post here).
So, onwards with this post.
As I had previously mentioned, I quit my full time job to look for a part-time one so I could focus more on my affiliate sites. I started my hunt for a job early last month, and as you may have guessed from the title I’ve managed to secure one.
I didn’t get it in the most conventional way either and it was actually an email I sent asking if I could do a guest post on SaveTheStudent.org that eventually got me a job there.
I’d been in contact with Owen (the owner of the site) while I was at University to promote one of my first sites, and I had also been in touch a few times at my previous job too as they were an affiliate. So last month I emailed Owen asking if I could do a guest post to promote one of my sites, and at the same time I also explained that I had left my previous role. As luck would have it Owen was currently recruiting for a part-time position based from home, and asked if I wanted to apply.
This was perfect timing, so I applied, got the job, and headed over to Manchester earlier this month for some training. My role there is as an Editor, I basically edit content before putting it onto the site, update older content, manage the social media channels, post deals to the site, and identify new SEO and affiliate opportunities too!
The company is run by a great bunch of entrepreneurial guys, and I can tell I am going to enjoy it, learn a thing or two, and get on well with everyone. Funny how things work out!
