It’s been a while since I’ve written a post here. I’m a month into a new job, and my last post is no longer relevant. Although I don’t post regularly, this blog has been been a tremendous help with accomplishing my goals. First, it has helped me find not one, but two jobs, and second, it has been instrumental in helping me build my network; an amazing group of people, most of whom I’ve become friends with. I was thinking about not renewing my domain, but how could I give away my name and a way to communicate with people? It’s just too valuable to me.
I hope to keep the blog fresh, and since this blog is not a revenue generator for me, I would still like it to be a place for me to write about things that are important to me (and maybe you), both personally and professionally.
What can I offer you professionally? In my new role as Director of Client Solutions for a web development firm, I help clients establish goals for their websites. We help mostly B2B clients, but also have B2C clients. Companies (mid-size) come to us because they want a website that is easy to update and both SEO and social media friendly. Most of our clients are content-driven. They want to be able to update their websites often, create meta data and categorize content for SEO and be able to distribute content over social channels. These web sites aren’t your typical WordPress sites. In many cases our clients are using marketing automation systems, analytics programs and email platforms that need to be integrated for full functionality. That’s what we do well – make it all work together. We provide a content management system with integrated email, which is a plus for many of our clients, as well as content marketing strategies to make sure goals are being accomplished and adjustments are made if not. If you are part of an organization that is seeking a new web presence or know a company who is, I would love to work with you. If we already know each other, that would be fun! I’m also open to guest blogging/speaking on related topics. You can see some of my posts here and here.
How can I help you personally? I’m not all business. A natural extrovert, I like to talk about a lot of things like books, music, movies, my kids/family, and charities. Feel free to approach me with any questions or thoughts you may have. Oh yeah, one more thing: if you are looking for work and want to utilize networking and social media to help you find the right job, I’d like to help any way I can because I’ve been there (twice!). I once heard a well-known social media personality (I’m not much of a name dropper, sorry) say “There may not be many jobs out there, but there is plenty of work.” I agree! It’s out there.
How often will I be posting here? That’s currently an action item on my list. You can find me blogging on my corporate blog more often, but don’t give up on me here just yet
Until next time…
