Everyone has to start somewhere and Fernando, the CEO of ClickDo Ltd., came to the realisation, after graduating from university, that he wanted to do his own thing. But how? He delved into books about business and technology and found an article in Forbes magazine that gave him the light-bulb moment: “Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the future”!
You need to find a skill and have a passion for it
There and then he sat down and taught himself all he needed to know about SEO. He started his first blog, fernandobiz, and shared his thoughts and knowledge about how to help small business owners. He fell in love with it and soon had his first clients, paying him a monthly fee for his SEO services. ClickDo Ltd. was born and it was run by Fernando all alone in its humble beginnings. Fernando describes “So I started my first blog with a self-hosted shared hosting plan on that he bought after so much thinking. Then later I collected money to host ClickDo and here I’m today owning multiple companies, including SeekaHost”. After his agency gained momentum he received more and more requests from local business owners in London and together with his friend Kasun, a self-taught web designer, he was able to build a business website and add services. To meet the ever-growing demand of his SEO services he hired more staff. Step by step Fernando built his own company and is a proud entrepreneur today, working on several projects and digital products simultaneously.

The statistics in the UK speak for themselves: “There were a record 5.7 million private sector businesses at the start of 2017. There has been sustained growth in the total business population, with increases of 2.2m (+64%) since 2000 and 197,000 (+4%) since 2016.”
