    Hi Everyone,

    I've worked a variety of small and big agencies for the past 5 years planing, implementing, tracking, and reporting across all digital channels. I want to move into becoming my own boss (starting an SEM/Social company on the side for small businesses) and I'd also like to make money using some of the techniques on these forum.

    My question is, where should I start? I'm very savy with Google Adwords, Facebook Ads, as well as youtube and GDN. With my expertise what route is best for my skill set?

    Thanks!

    I'd say start with something you find inspiring and interesting. You seem to be the one with the experience so whatever you pick is probably fine.

    You should start by reading and learning as much as you can on this board. Also start getting away from the employee mindset of being given work and told what to do. Realise its all up to you to take action by reading and learning and testing. As a business man no one is going to hold your hand, but you will get help with specific answers to specific questions in your journey.
