Interview with Alex Ardenti coming soon

20 Sep

Very excited folks.
The @alexardenti agreed to do an interview with me. As a huge fan of his work I reached out with a work sample and Alex graciously agreed.

The lesson here folks is you won’t get a yes if you don’t ask.

Another lesson is simply that if you look to work with the best you will become the best.

Know Your Worth

So folks this will probably be a two-part blog.

At my day job I am in an interim position and I was also in a leadership program. A special task within my leadership program was to assume a role that is also interim, that in theory fast-tracks you for management.

Now 5 Weeks Later I interviewed for the newer position, I have done everything they asked, and now have been denied it.

It is interesting because I also have the chance to Simply reapply but not interview to get a secondary spot for the same position.

I am currently mulling over going back to my original no management, no perks position. Why you ask?

Because in my heart I am not a second-place candidate. And I think the strongest message I can send to my employer, myself, and my son is that I have to control my destiny and never settle for less. Having discussed it with my spouse who is in agreement I am mildly conflicted but leaning towards going back to my original position. I will maintain my pay. Despite my work and these multiple sort of promotion/semi- promotions I have never had a raise.

Now this is customary where I work, that doesn’t mean I have to accept it either. To be continued…

Follow up to the previous infographic on your freelance hourly rates

I wanted to let you know that setting a higher freelance fee is better than setting a low one.

First you need to recognize your worth and all you you bring to the table- every single transaction.

Second you need to know that you can start at hundred and drop to 50, but you can’t start at 50 and go to 100.

Remember settimg a low bar for your pricing aka your worth may work as an opener but if you undervalue yourself how can you expect others to value you?

YouTube SEO: A Primer on What NOT To Do

YouTube SEO: A Primer on What NOT To Do

Untitled

Well, folks, it is official- I am a fool of epic proportions.

You see I was trying to churn out that content, videos, blog posts, tweets, Instagram, Tumblr, you name it. And considering myself savvy I set about using the basic apps on my smartphone.

You hear the sound of the fool train coming right?

So I filmed my famous crappy videos and posted them on the various social media outlets. Done. Mission accomplished.

Wrong.

As you can see from the videos I wasn’t using any of the tools at my disposal. What makes it worse is the tools are provided at no cost from YouTube! So a younger guy at my job told me today I had it all backwards, and he’s a smart kid so I fire up the old interwebs and boom, He is 2000% correct.

My views are trash on almost every video. Well actually they are trash for traffic building, sales, brand awareness- you name it. I was just feeling pleased as one video a year old has 1400+ views. HA! Eat that Boston Lloyd!

I’ve spent the last few hours learning some basics, and adding keywords to my videos- video by video. Yes I am a fool don’t be me.

Rather than sell you something or rehash what I learned I want you to click this link: link-assistant

There are tools, free and at cost and a plethora of advice.

Live Brolic!
