Hi guys, I'm Tara, I'm from New York. I joined Sam Ovens about three, four months ago and just completed this past month. Before that I was working full time in a corporate position doing consulting as well as doing my own little side business on handbags, and that's where I really got my spark for digital marketing. I had been in marketing in the past but seeing a new brand, to get exposure with limited budget, I mean digital marketing is the way to go.
So I got certified and then I was like, I could help other brands, so I saw the program and I bought it, which was a big deal because I did not have the money at the time, and was skeptical, as a lot of people have said. During it, about a few weeks into it, I earned my first client, not even on purpose, but started just talking about the stuff I was learning to a colleague of mine and she was like, can you come work for me?
Literally two days later I pitched her, and she wanted to do everything so I had to come up with pricing and I was overwhelmed, I didn't know what to do, so I reached out to the community and within ten minutes I had five answers, and someone from Australia was calling me the next day and we had a long conversation about how to handle this.
Since I've completed it, I still have a full time position but I'm doing this on the side and I've earned two more clients bringing in $2000 a month, so I can't wait to just continue doing it more. It's just truly amazing and I would love to share this with other people. There's so much to learn and people want to take that risk and be on their own and this is a great tool to learn that.
