Any advice would be appreciated.
25k-30k really nice,i hardly believe they pay so much
Really don't know! I guess they'll want someone with good understanding of analytics, plc campaigns, monitoring conversion rates etc - you need to be up on all that stuff.
You prob wanna make sure you can real off slot of analytics and advertising platforms that you are proficient in.
Maybe keep quite about bhw at least until your in the door
As far as link building goes I'm not sure, they obviously will use that as a strategy, but you prob Wont want to talk about that in an interview.
Not sure what else, prob some people better qualified to advise here...
Agree about not mentioning BHW during the interview.
Got any SEO tips for me mate, if you can apply for that job you must be good.lol
a couple of years ago, i went to an affiliates gig in canary wharf and it was packed out with affiliates managers & staff from various london agencies and affiliates from across the uk - ran into a couple of likely lads there who were looking to get into affiliate marketing and away from their day job which was working for one of the biggest seo companies in europe.
they were from the link building side of the company and either they were bullshitting me very convincingly (dont think so), or they didnt have a clue about black hat techniques (can hardly believe it). seemed that most of their time was spent searching out quality sites they could trade links with in a 3 way ring and providing reports and client updates.
ive heard similar stories from other people who are better connected than me in uk seo world, so i guess what im saying is that your pitch might need to not only exclude your bhw activities, but should positively extol the virtues of all the white hat techniques and tactics you love and honour. perhaps a good idea if you headed over to the white hat seo section of bhw and did a spot of quick revision on the subject.
back to your question of what to expect in terms of working in an office compared to working from home - main aspects will be the fact that youre getting out and about and dealing with human beings on a professional and daily basis - im being serious, and hopefully, the cameraderie that comes with that. oh, and lots of totty from essex: long legged blondes, short black skirts and plenty of attitude
here's the search firm i was referring to earlier - might be worth your while scrutinising their site to give you an insight into how theyre presenting themselves to their adoring public - whats noticeable is that theyve recently head hunted a social media director from citibank and id say thats a good indication of which way they feel that future seo cards are going to fall, and by making this appointment, theyre preparing their bets for their next hand, so swotting up on social media before you go to any interviews wouldnt go amiss either:
