It all started back in 1998 when my boss told me: “Carlos we need a website” meaning “Carlos put up a website”, which at that time meant some basic Chinese language I did not understand nor speak!
After dodging the ball for about two months, my boss told me: “Carlos I need the website up and running this week! or I’ll look for some one else to do it!”. That reminds me to Rich Schefren’s repeated comment about entrepreneurs getting things done: “… only you get things done when you have a hard, cold dead line”. It can’t be closer to the entrepreneurs reality! Always extremely busy, taking care of the urgent/emergency things.
Finally my first website was up and running some time in 1998, vci.org. I took some HTML classes, and I learned a lot studding by my self too.
In about two years, this website become the main source of customers for the 3 to 4 million company. Some times we had up to 90% of the customers coming from the website. Why? Because it was in the first page of Google on almost ALL the main keywords we targeted.
I learn a lot about SEO by reading and also by trial and error. A lot of practice, and a lot of errors! By it paid for it. You need at least 10 websites placed in the 1st page of Google at will, to say you are basically good on SEO. It’s not difficult, but requires a lot of practice.
Then I have the good fortune to come across of one of the most honest blogger I know: Yaro Starak, who later on introduced to me to his mentor Rich Schefren.
I immediately jumped into Rich’s GPS Internet Marketing and Strategies to build successful business on line, and following Yaro Starak’s and Rich Schefren’s suggestions, I blended that knowledge with my passion for helping people to get knowledge, to empower them to get to their dreams through teaching, coaching, and training them how to build their online business!
Over the last two years I realized the need of help that entrepreneurs and small business have, getting traffic to their website and start converting, selling online.
That’s the way Search Engine Optimization Services started, on June 2007.
