If you are reading this, I hope you are well and have had some time to enjoy the World Cup and/or Wimbledon during what is no doubt a very busy time of the year for our respective photography businesses.
It’s been a very busy few weeks here at PhotoProSEO.com and a bit of a time of mixed emotions for me personally. The reason being is that I have just concluded the sale of PhotoProSEO.com and MyPhotoCTO.com to Texas-based Hawkridge Digital Solutions Inc.
Mixed emotions because I will be sad to leave the businesses behind, but also very happy because I have seen the plans that Hawkridge have to move the businesses forward and they are very exciting!
However, it is time to pass the baton to a new pair of hands with bigger resources and access to an amazing team of SEO and WordPress experts.
Hawkridge Digital Solutions Inc is the vehicle of Texas-based Entrepreneur Amir Calcuttawala and I am so excited for him to be taking over the running of the sites – he has amazing SEO and marketing skills and has a fantastic vision for the future of the site.
As a member of our website you might not see any difference to the site for a little while, but you can expect big things in the future, with plenty of new content bringing you lots of tips and ideas for your businesses.
Personally, I would like to thank you all for your support over these past 5 years. Your emails and comments have always been uplifting and it’s been a great ride. Now it’s time for me to put my feet up for a little while.
No doubt Amir and his team will be in contact soon to introduce themselves and I do hope you will give them a warm welcome. I will still be around for a few weeks to ensure a smooth transition, so if you do have any questions about the acquisition, please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank You once again and I wish you all the very best!
Alan Hutchison, Founder PhotoProSEO.com
