Meet the Newest Member of Team Netbiz!
We're very excited to be welcoming Ian Bailey to the digital marking team here at Netbiz Group, so we asked our newest Digital Marketer to tell us a little bit about himself... 18th August 2021 -
Give us an overview of your career so far…
I began my career in 2011, when I started working as a freelance writer and editor, while also doing my university degree. I freelanced until 2018 — when I passed my MA and decided that it was time for a change.
After that, I took a detour into the worlds of finance and insurance. Half-way through the pandemic, I realized that I wanted to go back to writing. So, I reoriented my career back towards professional writing. Now I work at Netbiz, and I’ve never been happier.
What do you like most about working in digital marketing?
I’m a very creative person, especially when it comes to writing. I think that’s the main reason why I’m drawn to content writing. Editing — shaping raw language, like the way a sculptor shapes clay or marble — is also a lot of fun. I’m also a big fan of learning – I get a lot of personal satisfaction from researching topics and companies. I’m definitely one of those people who likes to see a project come to life and be completed – something that this role provides.
Tell us a little bit about your life outside of work…
Outside of work, you’ll most likely find me writing. It’s always been my passion, and I really enjoy doing it – so it’s probably a good thing I’m a content writer and not a chef.
I’m a really big reader. Currently, my favourite books are The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman and House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski – but this changes all the time! I’m also a really big music fan.
What else? I can play guitar and sort-of sing. If you know where to look, you can find a video of me playing a gig on YouTube. Before COVID, I was really into competitive axe throwing. I can also juggle and do card tricks.
How have your first few weeks at Netbiz Group been so far?
Great! I really like the team and everyone who I’ve had a chance to speak to over the past few weeks. One of the things that attracted me to Netbiz was that I was told they were a really great team to work with, and I’m really glad that’s true. Everyone’s been so helpful – even when it comes to stuff outside work!
I also really like the portfolio of clients that I get to work on. I’ve got a variety of industries and services to write about – even some of Netbiz’s oldest clients and I’ve really enjoyed the chance to spread my creative wings.
What are you looking forward to most in your new role at Netbiz Group?
Netbiz grew quite a lot last year, and as a result we’re onboarding a lot of really great clients. At the same time, we’re all working really hard to help our clients take that next big step forward. So, I guess I’m looking forward to the horizon and the future.
