As write my first post on my new personal blog, I feel like I’m in a place where things are beginning to look up.
I’ve just finished my first week of work in the SEO department at Standing Dog, an SEO and Digital Marketing firm in Dallas.
I feel that companies, corporations large and small, and individuals are only beginning to realize the power that marketing in the digital space can have on a company’s bottom line. In observing and realizing this, I decided that my goal would be to work for an SEO, Digital Marketing, and Social Media firm.
In realizing this goal, I did some necessary things to get myself closer and closer to it; I took an internship at a Dallas SEO firm, and another at a Dallas Digital Marketing Agency. I began to go to various networking events in the DFW Metroplex, like the Social Media Club of Dallas and the Dallas Fort-Worth Search Engine Marketing Association, to meet people in the industry, and to create some top-of-mind awareness for myself. As of late, I’ve been learning how to take control of my reputation and my name online, as well as how to properly become an authority (or as least listened to) in the fields of social media and search marketing in Dallas.
With the culmination of this new opportunity, I feel that all my efforts are beginning to pay off.
I love that Standing Dog is consistently growing, and that all of the employees have an enthusiasm for their field, and for the company. Everyone’s always typing away at their desks, getting work done, but not overwhelmed to the point where they don’t have fun whilst doing it.
Standing Dog is also located at Mockingbird Station. As I live not far from Plano’s train station, I can commute by rail line, saving time, money, gas, and many frustrations.
While having a great company culture, a growing portfolio and being conveniently located are nice perks, one of the things that I like the best is that the company was willing to take a chance on me. I know many things about digital marketing and search engine optimization, and though I WANT to know everything, I don’t. But Standing Dog saw my eagerness to learn more and become better, and hopefully I’ll bring my skillz and won’t disappoint.
Needless to say, I’m excited about the opportunity and what the coming months, weeks, and days entail.
