    In general what ever career you choose you have to be expert in it. I'm an SEO, I'm in the intermediate level and making decent living as well. But I'm learning programming (php) as I feel it's more rewarding after doing a little market research. But I think SEO + web development knowledge would be the best.
    One more thing do what you like the most. I made a bad decision earlier choosing a wrong path (a career that I didn't like but chose it as it was rewarding), now it's taking a lot out of me to recover. I still don't know if I can recover it well enough (yeah I left that career path).

    What a question!!!

    Great advice from ameerulislam: "...do what you like the most."

    Remember, your choice will potentially involve a working lifetime in front of you, so try and choose something you like doing.

    There are other things to think about as well when starting out on a career. Some questions you may ask yourself are:
    • Do you want to climb the corporate ladder?
    • Do you want to work freelance?
    • Do you want to set up your own company?
    • Is your main motivation money?
    • Do you prefer to work on your own or in a team?
    • What kind of home/work life balance do you want to achieve?
    • What else is important to you?


    As for me, I have worked freelance for more than 30 years in various capacities in the computing industry. If you choose a career in computing, be prepared to continually adapt and update your knowledge and area(s) of expertise - it is a fast changing industry.

    So, view asp.net developer or SEO as just an initial choice.

    As for me, my main claim to fame is that, in the early 1990s, I actually warned a large US multinational financial corporation that, due to suspect practices, they ran a large risk of monetary loss on their loan portfolio. Of course, the balance sheet was showing far too big potential profits from their loan operation for them to take any notice of my warning. A few years later the toxic loan crisis nearly destroyed the financial world! Sometimes people have such a small-minded ego, and so limited intellectual horizons, that they find it impossible to consider anything that goes against their own beliefs...

    When you do what you love, the work will not feel as work, it will feel like you are playing and you can't believe you are getting paid for that .

    Make sure you really like it, making money alone should not be the only motivator. Because in the long run you will get bored. If you are good at what you do money will follow. You follow for perfection and let the money follow you.

    Not if your background is in IT alone.

    SEO is not a Science; it's not even Technology. SEO is an art, one that entails the application of several distinctly different disciplines.

    Bear in mind that ASP.NET is just a tool, one of many tools, one that may or may not be in favor tomorrow. And, it's a specialized tool, not a general purpose one.

    I would, at this very early stage in your life, advise against specialization; it leaves you with few options should either it fall from grace or you tire of it.

    "A specialist is one who knows nearly everything about almost nothing."

    Knowing nothing about you, no more can be said. Perhaps if you would tell us of your position at and experiences with Instani we might better advise you.
