Marko Saric

I’m a digital marketer who grows startups and web traffic using content, search and social media marketing.

Marko Saric: Blogger and content marketer

I’ve published content and built audiences since creating a web community around my favorite band Metallica when I was a teenager in the late 1990’s in Denmark.

This is my site for anyone who runs their own site – or wants to. I share my digital marketing advice and lessons learned with the goal being to help you on this creative journey.

Occasionally, I also share other thoughts and ideas that I’m spending my time on and am passionate about.

Whether you’re a freelancer, an entrepreneur or a passionate person who wants to use your skills to build an audience, you are in the right place. Start by exploring my posts.


A bit more about me

I’ve successfully completed a BA degree in Marketing Management at Staffordshire University, UK.

Since then, I’ve had a seven year experience running content and social media activities for a large, publicly traded online gaming company in London, UK.

I’ve also had a three year, remote work experience as the head of growth in a venture funded, B2B social media analytics SaaS startup.

You can learn more about me and my career experience on my LinkedIn profile.


Ethics and privacy

My content is all available for free. There are no banner ads and sponsored posts. I don’t try to sell you anything. I don’t even collect your email address. Your privacy is important to me:

  • I have reduced the number of external scripts and trackers to the minimum.
  • There is no analytics tracking.
  • This blog is also 100% carbon neutral hosted on an eco-friendly server.

You may read my privacy policy for details.


How I monetize my site

There are no empty promises, intrusive advertising, pushy, sleazy sales tactics to get people to buy secrets that would make them rich overnight. The web is full of these.

My site is all about the pure content. And all of it is totally free. I fully focus on providing the value to you.

I’m not paid by any company or brand for any opinion, guide or article posted on this blog.

I’m not compensated based on page views so I don’t run any advertising nor do I allow anyone to run any code to track your internet presence.

I participate in affiliate programs designed to provide a means for blogs to earn commissions by linking to relevant, useful products.

Simply put, if you click on an affiliate link on my site and buy something, I earn a commission, yet you don’t pay any extra and can even get a discount by using my link.

The posts that include affiliate links are clearly marked.


What’s this site about?

It’s pretty simple to start a site today even without any prior experience but it’s very difficult to get discovered and build a business.

Most new ventures fail as people don’t know what to do, they don’t see results and give up.

There are no secrets, keys, and shortcuts to success. My intention is not to add to the swathes of bland advice guidance online.

You need to learn from other people’s mistakes and learn from your own mistakes.

This is what my site is all about. It’s full of practical, action-oriented and easy-to-consume advice. Big content topics are boiled down to easy-to-use knowledge, tactics, and strategies that you can apply today.

I give you the practitioner’s view from the inside of the world of social media, content marketing, and digital marketing. I present you with all my best lessons learned and know-how.

All you need to start a site and build it from the ground up. Here are some of the interesting starting points for you:

  • Take a look at the best blogging platforms list of links that I have put together for you to explore and choose form.
  • I have also detailed reviews and benchmark on some of the most popular platforms such as WordPress or Blogger.

I hope that my site helps you find the motivation to chart your own course and see where your passion leads you.

Blogging has changed my life, given me opportunities and I urge others to start and give their dreams a chance to come alive too.
