Hello everyone, I hope you are well! So short blog today. I have been having a long think about my career recently as it has been consistently evolving, and recently it has turned into something very exciting that I wanted to share with you all. So if you don’t know me personally, I typically, over my life, have had many careers. I was an electrician for a while. I worked in retail, was a waiter at one point, and recently came away from being a personal trainer.
What do I do?
I currently make my living from being a freelance writer, and I love it. I mainly write blogs for brands and even dabble in some SEO. I haven’t been doing this long, but I absolutely love it, and my experience is vast. Recently though, some of my clients have been asking me to not just write for them but take pictures and even make video content. As Google changes its algorithms, websites must adapt. A recent update hit some websites hard, and adding more unique content has seemed to fix it. This is the direction I have been going in with companies and also myself.
The New Plan
It got me thinking that maybe it is time to release an idea I have been thinking about doing for years and years, and this is to become a social media manager for bike shops. I absolutely love making content and am getting better and better at it all the time. I understand social media very well, and my SEO knowledge has grown hugely. So Cycling Social was born, and I added it to my website.
The concept is for every couple of weeks to go out to the participating bike shops and get content, come home, write blogs for their websites, edit the content into branded photos and videos then release it throughout the time until I next go back. I will also reply to messages and join in on some of their group rides. I just make it easy for the shop to have an online presence. I have worked in bike shops before and understand the impact a good social media presence can have and how easy it is to neglect. I believe I can add an astounding amount of exposure to a shop, resulting in more revenue.
So that’s the plan, and if you know anyone who might be interested here are all the details;
