I'm completely new to this industry but interested in a career change, working for myself and learning more about digital marketing consulting.So in essence researching, learning and creating a system that generates leads, conversions and sales for a niche that I can then implement and sell to clients for a monthly fee.
I've always been inspired by working for myself and leaving the 9-5 grind but I think my turning point to make action was when a colleague of mine quit his job because he was making more money consulting than his 9-5 job. So if you can't beat them, join them.
I'm at the very start of my journey so expect to be spending most of my time reading articles, learning about different marketing techniques, social media, analytics etc. Also testing different methods on my own website to see what works and to learn by trial and error.
I guess my main question is where do I start?I'm quite overwhelmed by all the info out there.I do have an idea of the sort of business model I want to sell (consulting) but unsure of the elements I need to put together to create a system that would generate leads that would be worth clients paying for.I'm not asking for people to tell me, I'm just not sure where to start or look or how many different areas would be involved.
As such does anyone think it's worth paying for fast track information that is being offered by people like Sam Ovens?$2k is a lot to fork out without knowing what you are getting.Has anyone paid for this type of information before from any online marketeer?Is it value for money?Does it get to the nuts and bolts of a working system or is it quite vague?
Thanks for any info or pointers.
