  1. I felt this exact way personally a few years ago. I started by volunteering for projects and startups in order to build my resume with practical experience. Then I applied to jobs and my resume was found by a recruiter for social media analyst. I worked there for 6 months and then got a job selling digital marketing services so that I can learn how to sell these products. NOW I feel I'm ready to start an agency.

  2. Before the ‘Agency Gold Rush’ there was the same thing with online courses. I knew someone who created his first (and only) online course, on how to create online courses.

    He didn’t sell anything. You have to have something of value before you can sell something.

  3. Love this, I noticed a local business had terrible fb and website and offered to work on it, saying I am good at writing and with no marketing agency experience. He went gung ho and decided to hire me as a marketing manager for ridiculous pay, needless to say whatever expectations he made up in his mind weren't met, and it ended sourly.

    That's the expereice most will have if they try and sell themselves as a legitimate agency with no experience, especially I'd you try and do everything for them.
