Will future SEOs be Journalists?

When I first started dabbling in SEO I did so from a journalistic point of view. Let me take you back a decade or so to explain. I was working for a company called Campbells Commercial Vehicle Marketing Group, a fresh faced, spotty youth straight out of uni.

Campbells’ carried out marketing, mainly for multinational businesses selling vans and trucks as well as accessories for those kind of vehicles. They marketed in a very traditional manner, mainly direct marketing, data marketing, market research through a call centre. Not long after I arrived they decided to launch a monthly trade magazine and before you knew it I was a full time marketer and a part time trade journalist. Getting a van every week full of fuel and being sent to vehicle press launches was pretty amazing. Read more

Thinking about copywriting and SEO

I’ve been writing copy for years, all my working life in fact, I’ve written copy for ads, I’ve written brochure content, I’ve written articles for magazines and newsletters (at one point I was a part time journalist), press releases and I’ve written a lot of content for websites.

It’s only because the marketing work I did so early on in my career that I’m a search marketer, without that focus on content I may never have had the drive to work with copy.

For years now I’ve been working with people who tell me text is about to be dumped from the internet but at the end of the day it remains. Copy is still an essential element of any website, text and copy are actually becomming more important when you take into account social media marketing.

I hadn’t really mentioned copywriting services through this website however after looking at my skill set I think it’s an important part of what I do, my freelance seo copywriter page is now ranking on the second page of Google, let’s see what a bit of focus on perfecting this page will do. Fingers crossed.

Good content is always the foundation to what I do, it’s what I’ve done all my working life and as such I think it’s important I concentrate on being a marketing orientated copywriting search marketer.
