Time goes fast, especially online. It’s already been about four years ago since I started working at Tribal Internet Marketing, and I’ve learned a LOT in these four years. Tribal gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge, to attend (and speak at) several search marketing conferences, and to work with lots of amazing colleagues and very interesting clients. It was great to set up a completely new service at Tribal, and to hire and coach a team of very smart link marketers.
Although I still love working at Tribal, I felt it was time for a new challenge, which is why I decided to leave the company. Until the end of January, I will still do some work for Tribal. As of February, I’ll be completely independent.
So what’s next?
That’s what I asked myself when I decided it was time for something different. I love being creative, I enjoy testing & tuning, helping others gives me a boost, and trying new things is awesome as well. And all of this had to be part of whatever my next step would be.
A few months of thinking, brainstorming and talking things through, resulted in an interesting combination of developing & running a few (publishing) projects, taking on a few link building clients on my own, and teaming up with the brightest Dutch link builder I know. He happened to have a great link building domain name laying around, which is where you can see both our faces now.
The next few months will tell how this combination turns out to be, but I’m definitely looking forward to it :)
