    Hey everyone!

    I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Robbie and I joined BAF because I want to mainly network with other business owners, provide advice when I can, and also get some advice from those more experienced in certain things.

    I've already taken a look around and realize how helpful this forum is.

    Just a little background on myself: I've worked in the online marketing industry for nearly 5 years now with experience in customer service, affiliate/SEM marketing as well as social media marketing. I also regularly consult small businesses and am creating a YouTube channel aimed at helping small businesses with marketing and strategy in this new social era without spending much money.

    Thank you all! :)

    -Rob

    Hello Rob welcome to BAF, We are happy to get an experienced member in our community.
    I was just curious to know, what was your job to do being an online marketer.

    Hey Remonray! I held several positions in online marketing but I got into the online space first as a customer service supervisor for SwimOutlet.com. I was then moved to their marketing department and managed their social media and affiliate program. I was hired on a social media marketer so I could focus on affiliate management and grew their program from $100k per year to $1.5 million in the first year alone. While doing that, I also did consulting work for a few small local businesses. I was actually laid off from SwimOutlet a little over a year ago and have since been working for RushCard. I was hired on as an Jr affiliate manager soon after, but got moved into social media this June and have since quadrupled their engagement. I also work directly with the director of online marketing do manage our SEM and display campaign. I continue to work in my community to help small businesses grow and improve their marketing and I'm currently working on a book to help even more! I've worked with businesses ranging from small dance studios to regional bakeries such as Beckmann's Bread.

    I'll share my YouTube channel in a bit, I just got it started so I want to add a few more videos so it has better value! I'll post the link soon!
