About Me

Adam Connell Hey, it’s Adam here…

I’ve put this page together to let you know a bit more about me, my journey and what you can learn here on my personal blog.

The purpose behind this blog is to share what I’m learning on my journey with you. This will include anything from marketing know-how, to actionable productivity tips.

You’ll also learn about some of the projects and businesses I’m involved in, and how what I’ve learned can be applied in your own business.

You won’t find new content very often. There won’t be any sort of strict editorial calendar, I’ll only write when I have something to say.

What about me?

I’m first and foremost a marketer that specializes in SEO and list building. Blogging Wizard is what I’m best known for.

I come from the UK, currently residing in the West Midlands and have a passion for learning how things work.

My journey

I started building HTML websites with Dreamweaver; none of them got off the ground but damn, it was fun! I probably took on more than I could chew when I tried to build a full ecommerce website to sell bingo machines.

After years of focusing on my first love; music, I revisited Dreamweaver when I got the idea to start a record label while I was in college.

It was a crazy idea; thinking that I could create my own profitable record label with no experience but I went with it and out of it came one of my greatest achievements.

The business idea failed but after pivoting to a none-profit label, we made some headway and went on to surpass 2.5 million downloads on our releases. This taught me what was possible to achieve from the chair in my living room.

I went on to launch a few more sites while working a full-time job.

One was a joint venture in the video game niche – we hit 15,000 unique visitors per month in 3 months with no budget. And we went on to have a team of 30+ writers.

The experience of growing my own websites helped me get a job at a small marketing agency.

Within a few months, I had my own team and I went on to become the operations manager. I spearheaded the launch of a new service which grew into a 6 figure per month business on its own – this took around 4-6 months, of which I spent a few days each month on the marketing.

We had a VERY small marketing budget, but the results were incredible.

While working at the agency I launched Blogging Wizard and grew it to the point where I could afford to leave my job.

Then in 2015 I was invited back as a partner, and within the 3-4 months that followed I increased our traffic by over 300%.

Passion

I wouldn’t consider myself a serious business person.

What I love is building and growing websites that fulfill a need. Along with watching re-runs of Firefly (go brown coats!) and Chinese takeaways.

My goal has always been to create a lifestyle that gives me the freedom to enjoy it and I’m happy to say that I’ve achieved it.

And I’m excited to see what the future has in store.
