    Just curious if any of you put your affiliate marketing skills on your resume? If you do, how do you word it? I figure that with the crappy job market having these skills ppc, blog, article writing, marketing etc. might make a difference in landing a job. Do you all make up some company name or do you just say that you are self employed? Thanks for any input.

    If it was for a marketing or public relation job or if there was a gap on your resume of a few years where there was no experience or work done then I would put it in just to explain how you got by.

    I never really thought of it back then when I had a daytime job (I make my living online now), but yes, it does make a difference and worth a shot.

    Say you used to do online marketing in your spare time, selling products and offering marketing services for example... and you own websites: a,b,c...etc. or you can make one of your websites appear as your own small company...

    You would be surprised how many employers would take you much more seriously. The fact that you have a good website/blog with followers who know your name will be of great benefit, no matter what niche it is.

    I did it when I was applying for a job selling cars. Once I got hired they started asking me all kinds of marketing strategies and whatnot which I thought was pretty funny....even funnier is the fact that they didn't want to spend their budget on internet marketing methods outside of what they were doing. So yeah I'd say it could help :)

    A resume = J.O.B = :puke:

    But to answer your question, if the J.O.B. you are applying for is marketing related, why not.

    If I were to go back to working full time at an office I will put it on there for sure to explain the gaps. I started a business and the business was IM. If they have questions tell them the president will write them a letter of reference. Also I don't intend on ever working for anyone again

    I got into IM so that I wouldn't ever have to go back to a job. I don't care if I have to peddle rock, I'm never going back to a "job".

    I'm looking for similar jobs right now and I see a lot advertised in my area (Socal)... Was it hard for you to do your job and get used to it even tho you didn't have much experience in SEM? How hard/complex is it?

    it really depends on what type of job i was applying for and if there was applicable expereince . for example. if i was applying to a place that listed scripting as a qualification and i had automated some stuff in python.. yeah i de list it. ...

    also if you really got an LLC . its worth listed as well.
