Hey there! My name is Fabrizio Van Marciano and I'm the founder of Magnet4Blogging Media. A warm welcome to you.
For the last 8 years, I have been working with small businesses, startups, bloggers, and entrepreneurs from all over the world.
I started my own online business journey back in 2006, but not as a blogger, web designer, or digital marketer, but, as an artist.
Before I share with you that story, let me first explain how this website came to be.
Magnet4Marketing, (Before rebranding as Magnet4Blogging), was launched in August of 2010 as an advice and resource blog for small businesses.
The blog picked up a lot of traction quickly, although I was completely new to blogging myself.
In January of 2013, I changed the website's direction and rebranded to Magnet4Blogging, and adding new topics; blogging and social media.
In March of 2014, Magnet4Blogging completely transitioned into a digital media company, as I began offering web design, front-end development, graphic design, and branding services.
Today, I continue to provide these digital services as well as a selection of digital products to help bloggers, entrepreneurs, and online business owners build their own successful online brands.
I also continue to regularly write and manage the blog where I love to share actionable tips, ideas, as well as to educate and inform my audience on all things related to WordPress, website design and development, conversion rate optimization, inbound marketing, business strategies, and entrepreneurship.
From time to time, I also like to invite other authoritative experts and industry leaders to contribute to the blog.

From artist to web designer
So I started my first online business venture back in 2006 as a self-representing visual artist, so design and creativity have always been my passion.
As with most artists, at the time, I struggled to find ways in which to promote and sell my artwork.
I turned to the internet, however, the World Wide Web was a completely different landscape 12 years ago, that I can tell you. And getting a professional website created for your business meant paying out a lot of money.
So, one day, I decided to take the plunge and learn how to build a website for myself.
It took an enormous amount of my time and energy, and I was completely stepping out of my comfort zone as an artist, but I did it and I felt so darn proud.
The rest, as they say, is history.
My primary passion and focus
Today, my main passion and focus are providing exceptional website design, branding, inbound marketing, and conversion rate optimization services through Magnet4Blogging Media.

When I'm not designing websites?
When I'm not designing and building websites, doing marketing, or blogging stuff, I love devoting as much of my free time to my beautiful family.
For me, the greatest reward of being an entrepreneur and freelancer has been time.
I have the freedom to spend quality time with my family and watching my children grow up. For that, I'm ever so thankful for.
I also love to travel, I enjoy surfing and family holidays in the Canary Islands, painting, fine dining, drinking lots of coffee, and pampering myself and my better half in health spa retreats from time to time.
