I am not a marketing manager with a 6 figure salary or a CEO of a marketing agency. I marketing intern with no degree. But I’ve learned way more from the internet than I think I would have learned in college.
With that said, being self-taught was not easy. There is so much information that was thrown at me that I didn’t know what to spend time on, and keep. For that reason, I’m writing this to help anyone who is trying to go through this process.
Trust me there are a lot of projects, and experience that you can get even with no past experience.
One way I did it was by interning. Many people don’t like the idea or think it might take too much time out of their day. which is fine. here are some more examples of things I would do if I didn’t pick this route
Run a small influencer’s, or local shop’s social media.
Build a personal blog or portfolio website.
E-mail agencies to see if you can help out doing small tasks.
Build a website for a small shop near you.
Hopefully, this helps! You can follow my social media and see the weekly progress I make.
And at the end of the day always remember…
no one knows what they are doing.
