SPEC PORTFOLIO

SEO ARTICLE

The Project...

SEO copywriting has reputation for being dry and formulaic. But getting high Google rankings isn't just about well-placed keywords and trusted backlinks.  In fact, the secret to any successful SEO article is creative, well-written and compelling content. 

My SEO articles seamlessly weave keywords and phrases into unique, informative, high-quality articles that impress both your clients and major search engines.

This spec feature was written for a major international removals company. The objective was to boost their position in Google search engine results using relevant keywords and phrases.  The article explores the emotional rewards of moving abroad. I aimed to make it positive, inspiring and highly personal to the reader.

Five Great Reasons for Moving Abroad in 2020

 

Have you ever dreamed of living overseas? With global job opportunities at a record high and international travel more affordable than ever, there has never been a better time to turn that dream into reality. 

Here are just five reasons you should consider moving abroad in 2020.

1. It is not as difficult as you might think

Moving your entire life to a new country is a daunting prospect. But leaps in technology have made migration in 2020 far more seamless than stressful!

Thanks to the internet, everything you need to know is at your fingertips — from help with visa applications to advice on local schools. Social media means it is easy to keep in touch and provides great networking opportunities in your new home. And nowadays, even transporting your belongings is straightforward, with international removal companies to take care of all packaging, logistics and insurance for you. 

2. It brings a new perspective

Adjusting to a new pace and quality of life in your new home forces you to reflect on your own cultural values and challenges your perceptions of the world.

 

Living day-to-day in a different country means you immerse yourself fully in the culture, form connections with people unlike yourself and experience life in an entirely new way. 

And who knows? This heightened self-awareness could even open your eyes to a brand new version of yourself!

3. It makes you happier (yes, really!)

 

A slower pace of life, better work-life balance, a lower cost of living and more disposable income are just some of the ways moving abroad can improve your quality of life. And for those heading to warmer climes, the prolonged exposure to sunshine is scientifically proven to benefit your mental and physical health. 

 

In fact, according to a recent government survey, 80% of British expats said they were happier than they were before living overseas.

4. You’ll grow in confidence

Relocating to a new country pushes you out of your comfort zone and into situations you never thought you’d find yourself in. 

But by successfully dealing with these new challenges, your faith in your own abilities will start to grow. Making friends, negotiating language barriers and starting a new job in a brand new country all prove you’re capable of more than you could ever imagine. 

No wonder a majority of expats report heightened self-esteem as a key benefit of migration!

5. You’ve always wanted to!

If you have always seen yourself living abroad, then you’re not alone. According to government research, three quarters of Brits would like to experience life in another country. So why not be one of the few that fulfil that dream?

 

There has never been a better time to set aside your fears, take the plunge and start creating a life you want to be living.  After all, life begins at the end of your comfort zone!
