about

What is my story?

My journey started when an interesting idea for selling a great and unique product via an ecommerce store was presented by a colleague in early 2017.

A bit before that I had started my first Tumblr And G-Sites (so cool!) so I thought that I knew what I was getting into (but I was wrong!)

This one-of-a-kind product (at least by my eyes) had to be sold in a limited time frame, so it was very essential to learn all that I possibly could and at the shortest time to make this all happen.

After studying the subject and trying to find the best possible platform that would work for me, I have decided to start my first webshop using WordPress cms & Woocommerce + some useful themes and plugins.

At that time I had no real experience with web development so I had my work cut out for me. After some time I had started getting to know the main ideas about wordpress and woocommerce alongside many other plugins and themes.
I am self trained and feel at home with WordPress web development these days, but back then – things were kind of difficult.

Time to learn WordPress – 
Shortly after, I started learning WP and went deep! – I tried out themes and plugins and mostly began feeling at home with my CMS of choice.

So after mastering and learning on the go – I have managed to finish my first WordPress website.

Website number 1 was done and I have managed to outperform my initial estimates and successfully introduce a new product to the world, this made me excited.

After some time – I had managed to reach my goals and I was very pleased with the outcome(s).

After finishing designing my first website , it was time for the real challenge – to get some traffic and sales.
this is what I have accomplished later on: SEO (at a high level – I have studied SEO for a very long time) Self Hosting with AWS & GCP , site analytics , Email campaigns, PPC – Google, FB etc’ and many more.

The SEO learning Process:
First I started Optimizing my site with on page tools such as Yoast seo.
I started to understand how my on-page optimizations were impacting my search visability and rankings.

Further steps for my site included optimizing products and setting up a nicely “all green” on page and product using focus keywords, descriptions, meta H1, H2 and many more.  

After finishing my first website I started to venture into additional projects that keep me busy.

after taking the basic steps with SEO – I knew the opportunity was there – so I decided to try to learn everything I could about it.

On – Page SEO, Off – Page SEO,
Technical SEO , Local SEO –
If you can name it – I have done it! 

Over the years I have gathered extensive experience in many fields of interest, please checkout the list below.

WordPress – The best platform I know, it’s no surprise that 92%+ of the sites on the web use WP. 

SEO is a huge part of my early understanding about ranking my websites and getting traffic to get sales the organic way

SEO tools:
Google SEO tools I use:
– GSC
– Lighthouse
– Analytics
– page speed insights
– structured data testing
– Ads(keyword planner) 
– google trends,
– incognito mode
– browser search
