I'm an SEO, worked in web design for seven years (mainly self employed) and switched to SEO and web marketing in 2007. I no longer do actual websites and turn down any offers i get for them, apart from the odd one or two just to keep my css layout skills and PHP in check I do however run a VPS to house the clients websites on (i normally transfer them to my server where possible) with about 30 client sites on.
After a stint working for an SEO company (which i didnt like as the bosses way was the only way, i'm not a suckup and couldnt live with it) i went it alone.
Now, i'm currently looking after about 20 regular clients, with more rolling in slowly each month, either via referrals or via a trickle of web enquiries. This is under the operations of my fathers family run software support company (which he's been doing for thirty years). All invoices are via his company, yet i essentially work on my own. Theres basically only two of us, he does the office support, i do the web work. He's shortly to retire and i dont want to continue the office support, but concentrate on the web marketing only.
Now, i want to expand the SEO and web marketing side of things. Ideally i want another SEO to join up with (similar to myself) and amalgamate the clients. I want new ideas, new clients ,and i want to offer my own in return. I want to build a brand and a company which is more than just me sitting in my home office. Premises and an office base would be great !!
Now, i'm not business minded at all, so are unsure what to do next.. ANY advice or opinions would be gratfeully received.
If there is anyone else in the UK (preferably midlands based) who is in the same position.. contact me !!
