    Hey guys and gals!

    So decided I wish to pursue ppc and stupidly thought I could self teach to the point of being profitable for businesses.. HA very very naive of me and to be honest disrespectful of the work needed to become a very good specialist. Think it was partly due to coming from a sales background.

    This sub has very very knowledgable people and so I am humbly requesting some help.

    Currently I’m doing google courses and completed two, also getting a local charity registered for google ad grants so I can help generate them more funds. Will do so under a business development capacity hopefully if I get the role, if I don’t that’s still the plan.

    Trying to pivot from sales into ppc but nobody’s looking for junior ppc staff atm, I realise there’s sometimes no business need but I’m willing to reduce my salary from 40-45k a year back to £9 a hour to get some experience.

    My question is how do I convince a business to hire me. The ideas I have so far are:

    1. Carry on with the side project
    2. Curate a list of all the agencies within my location and send them a video of myself and what I’m about. Not looking for a 9-5 happy to leave my current job to join them etc

    What else can I do? I need a ppc job by January and I’m willing to pretty much work for minimum wage to get to where I need to.

    Greatly appreciate advice and again thanks for the gold nuggets shared so far!!


    1. Continue the day job and do it on the side. Reach out to local businesses that aren’t advertising and do it for free. Other option (which Id focus more on) is to find a niche and start selling online yourself. Again, while continuing the day job… either way, find a niche and learn/master it. PPC for restaurants is very different than ppc for insurance or some other niche.

    The other consideration is that most platforms are trying to dumb down the entry barriers for small business with smart bidding. I’m NOT saying there’s not going to be a need for PPC specialists, but it’s only going to get more “smart”.

    There’s other options like gig jobs, but your competing against guys in countries where’s $10 an hour with flexibility is an awesome wage.

    Not trying to discourage you and you should continue to learn, but there’s nothing like having your own coin on the line and burning midnight oil while doing your day gig. Niche… the narrower, the more obscure, the better.

    Good luck and follow your passion!
