My name is Paul Hill and I want to be an Internet Entrepreneur. I am a self-employed IT consultant trying to make it in the world of online marketing.
About 18 months ago I decided to take a minor detour from my chosen career path, having spent the last 8 years providing IT support I started to think that “if I keep doing this now, I will be doing it forever.” I wanted a new job where I could work from home, could be my own boss and have the flexibility to spend my time doing the things that I wanted to do. Pretty much that same week, I enrolled on a web design course and decided to form a business as a web designer.
After about 6 months of intense studying I launched my business. It was not long before I had my first client and things were looking promising. Several more jobs soon came in through paid advertising and I started to think that my initial plan was looking more and more feasible.
One night I was working late on a project for a client when it dawned on me that this job was no different; I was still working for someone else and I was still doing something that I did not really want to do. That was the last website I designed for a customer.
I have now turned my attention to Internet Marketing, Search Engine Optimisation and online affiliation. I have created this website to record all of the steps in which I take on my long and hopeful road to success. My goal is tot to create a web design methodology which focuses on the monetisation of websites. All of my successes (if any) and failures (hopefully not too many) will be documented to provide transparency of my efforts.
I am under no illusion that there is a huge amount of work to be done. Late nights sat in front of the computer is par for the course and the norm from now on.
I have spent the last 18 months studying, researching and implementing Web Design, SEO and Internet Marketing; now it is time for me to put pen to paper so to speak and utilise my new skills for the purpose of monetisation.
