Who is Michael Pozdnev?
I have spent most of my life in Belarus, a country of which I’m sure many of you have never even heard. However, Belarus is home to 10 million amazing people. You can have a look at the map to find out where it’s located (hint: it’s in Europe).
I have always dreamed of working from my laptop, traveling and meeting new people as I progress in my career. All of this has come true!
Do you dream of the same thing? Or maybe you already lead such a lifestyle.
Either way, let’s connect!
My professional experience began in 2000. And now here I am, working in the field of SEO, marketing, website development and social media promotion — and it’s been over 15 years!
That doesn’t sound too shabby, does it?
Over the years I have created more than 200 websites, owned a company that provided site development and promotional services, participated in SEO contests and co-founded several businesses: an online English school, a car rental firm in the Czech Republic and several online shops that sell movies and computers.
Why I refused to work for others
At the beginning of my career, I decided to create projects for others.
My friend and I set up the website development company. 10 years later, however, we arrived at the conclusion that it would be more interesting, and more profitable, to create for ourselves.
What led us to this decision? We were making a substantial profit, not to mention communicating with interesting people at seminars and training sessions.
The answer is quite simple, though: I started feeling ill at ease.
I couldn’t help but sense a void, knowing I was doing something that wasn’t actually my thing.
I’m a perfectionist by nature (I’m trying to change, but it’s been tough).
A lack of professionalism among employees and clients alike has always irritated me to know end. Unprofessional people slow things down due to their incompetence, laziness and failure to prioritize high-quality work.
That was when I made up my mind: I would leave all those things, and from then on only do things that inspire me (and others, of course).
Around that time, I happened upon blogging.
I wanted to become a blogger!
I longed to help other people — people just like you — as they developed in the blogosphere.
I definitely wanted to ask for help when I just getting started, and now I’m here to give back.
That’s how the idea arose.
It started growing, and as a result, I began doing what I really love: traveling, meeting new people, spending time with my family and close friends, sharing my professional experience and developing.
My conclusions after losses and the birth of the dream
My life was full of joys and victories, as well as grief.
There is nothing more painful than the loss of your mother or child, when you realize that there is nothing you can do to help your beloved.
Resentment, anger with yourself and a sense of hopelessness are all symptoms of loss. Each day becomes grayer than the last; you work like you’re trapped in a cloud of fog, and you don’t understand why you’re even alive.
Time heals all sorrows, according to some. I would say that it makes things easier, but that doesn’t mean that it heals all wounds.
My brother and sister saved me. Helping one another through hard times really united us. It was a miracle, really, since there is a huge age gap among us, and we’ve always had completely different interests. As my mother used to say, family is the most valuable asset. We became aware of that by way of our personal example.
When you help others, you become happier yourself. This is the gift you get from the person you’ve helped.
Blogging allows you to help others unlike anything else.
You read articles, delve into their meaning and learn from the author. You share his or her thoughts and ideas; you debate, express your opinion.
The blogosphere is a big family, and I want to be part of it.
That’s why I’ve pinpointed my goals in life and work. Here they are:
#1. Share my experience in SEO, website creation, online marketing and blog monetization
I have come a long way in the last 15 years. I’ve experienced countless failures and successes (more of the latter, which is why I’m with you right now).
I have been engaged in the promotion of my projects for just the past 5 years. I must admit, I have achieved quite a few positive results, namely:
I’ve created 30 sites from scratch in niches like teaching English, gardening, medicine, banking, earnings on the internet, construction and repairs, finance and credit, assistance in the student education and many others.
In total, traffic reached 300,000 unique visitors per day — more than 7 million users per month, with 30 million views.
#2. Improvement of accomplishments and professionalism in blogging
I’ve met so many great people over the course of my journey, but they simply didn’t have time to study the nuances of proper blog and website creation and promotion.
And they suffered because as a result They did not believe in success, and so rewriters and creators of non-unique and useless content prospered.
I declared war on these non-professionals in the IT sector. It is their fault that it’s become so hard to find worthwhile information, even with the help of your favorite search engine, Google. Employees of Google Corporation also kill their time by reading entertaining news, which slows down the performance of this brilliant search engine — and no one is an exception!
A lack of desire to take responsibility hinders the development of not only employees, but also the company as a whole. There are many examples that support this idea, such as Google+, glasses, electronic money and more.
#3. Creation of a community of enthusiastic bloggers
It is often be difficult for us bloggers, as sometimes even our friends and relatives are reluctant to believe in us. It is especially difficult at the beginning, when you have just recently chosen this path. You are passionate about what you do, but you need support.
Through this blog, I want to create a community of talented people who love what they do. This blog will save you years of learning — years that I spent researching how to do what I do today.
I hope that my friends will join me, and that they’ll share their knowledge and experience in PPC, Adwords, email marketing, growth hacking, advertising on social media, Facebook, Twitter and others.
I believe that you will comment on my articles and case studies, and that you’ll send me your work with the desire to help novices and professionals alike.
#4. Blog and site monetization with step-by-step instructions
In order to succeed, the key factors are concentration, focus and a clear plan.
It is important to take your competitors’ and other bloggers’ achievements into account.
However, everyone has his or her own way of doing things —we’re all individuals, after all.
You do not need to be like anybody else. It is important to understand who you are, to be proud of it and to move forward.
In my posts, I’m going to tell you how you can start earning online. How to use your blog monetization faster and more correctly. What you should dedicate more time to, and what you should get rid of.
I promise to create detailed step-by-step instructions that will help you achieve your goals.
#5. Creation of an online education system
This is a dream. But the times are changing quicker than ever before, and I see that universities as they are nowadays are already starting to die out.
Why is that, do you ask?
They cannot keep up with the speed of information consumption development. Over the past 15 years, the world has accelerated a hundred times, thanks to mobile phones and the internet.
Now we consume much more information than we did just a few decades ago.
The system of online education has grown to $107 Billion in 2015.
The future has arrived!
