Search Engine Optimization uses keyword rich content in order to rank on page #1 of the search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing etc….

Content marketing is the creation of content that answers the questions and/or needs that potential customers would have about your product(s) and/or service(s) utilizing keywords as well as value based information.

Social Media Marketing is growing the brand awareness within the social media platforms establishing trust as well as a face to your business.

Search Engine Marketing is different than SEO because SEM deals with things such as PPC (Pay-Per-Click) ads within the search engines.

Social Media Marketing also includes ads within the platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest etc… depending on the company’s business model.

Email Marketing is a way to build your list and get in front of your targeted audience that has subscribed to your newsletter.  You can also share deals, coupons, new articles, more content etc…. with your valued customers to establish even more value.

When billing your customer, you wouldn’t bill per hour, you would bill either by the job or by the month and adjust your quote based upon expected time needed to accomplish the job.  The absolute best way to measure the time is to start by building your own business with the areas discussed earlier while applying what you’ve learned.

You can also do some free work for a very close friend and/olr relative in order to learn as well as establish a wonderful referral testimonial.

The perks look really good, with $60,000 average per year for full time work, or even part time at $22 an hour, or a lot more if you are motivated and willing to learn.

  25. Wow! The window of opportunities that accompanies being a certified and very innovative and creative digital marketer is really endless. Being able to just stand alone and serve others while being bonded by no rules and laws of working for anyone specifically. I love the feel of this and I might consider diving into this field too as a second hustle for me

  26. Learning digital marketing skills can really be a game changer for our personal finances. And I know a lot of people are infected with the idea that earning money online could be easy. The have the mentality that scammers have implanted in the head of many. But obviously, after putting in the tremendous effort it takes to master these skills, it can truly pay off for years.

  27. It’s a good opportunity for me to have come across this article, becoming a freelance digital marketer is a good idea but I believe it is very appropriate to know what you are going into before you sign up for it.

    found really easy to understand and gave me full experience on having my on business

    Alternatively, freelancers can also be kept on a retainer basis for specialist tasks that would not be cost-effective if performed in-house.

    As such, becoming a freelance digital marketer could be a valuable and income-generation career path.

    Thank you!

  30. I am a member on LinkedIn, Upwork and Fiverr and this article is giving me more ideas of tasks I could do to improve my offerings. I probably would concentrate on one or two of the areas listed and increase the offers as my business increases. Good information here. I have got work to do !!!!

  31. Hello Tony, writing is something that seems easy to the eye of so many but when you come closer to it you see two things about it, being creative and being fast. Not everyone can deliver that and that is why freelancers should be really appreciated and paid properly. I am very much a writer and I really enjoy doing it. Although I haven’t tried making money from it. 

  32. You ask some good questions at the end of the article, questions that made me reflect. Do I want all this? Yes, I want to work from home and be my own boss, and I have been working for that for the last year, and I am still learning every day. Am I willing to put in the hours? Totally!

    I had not considered doing this as a freelance job, but it is also worth considering, since many people don’t want to bother with things like SEO or email marketing and they’d rather have someone else do it. Would Fiver be a good place to advertise as a freelancer in this area?

  33. Though I answered most of those questions yes, to see if being a freelance digital marketer is for me, I know I have so much more to learn before I can become a freelance digital marketer  That is ok, cause I’m willing to put in the work that is needed to become an expert in the field. I can appreciate the ideas you have given here and would definitely like to take on the challenge in the future. Thank you again for sharing a wonderful post.

  34. Thanks for providing the tips on how to get work online. Results come with dedicated hard work as you have rightly pointed out. I am positive that the useful information you provided here will be used by all who aspire to be seasoned digital marketers including myself. Thanks for the this great piece of work.

  35. Hi Tony,

    Another great article to learn and be knowledgeable. I run an online business and trying to hone my skills to be really good at few things to start with. I do all of the things for my website. My knowledge is limited on many of the areas. 
    currently I am bootstrapping my business.

    Dedication and commitment are the keys to success. I am happy be around you to share your knowledge.

    Thank you for sharing the resources to find clients. 

  36. Thank you Tony,

    I have enjoyed this information that you have given with regards to Digital Marketing and I am so pleased that you have shared with us. 

    I know that as I have started to build up my business that I am starting to explore different areas so there are some things here that I already do but there is so much that I am going to look into further. 

    Your information is always so useful and practical as you have learnt from your own experience and have been successful doing it.

    Thank you again for the awareness.


  37. Awesome information for online digital marketers. I don’t know much about this but I think it’s a very exciting field. As most of the world population is connected, it makes sense that in the near future almost every transaction will be done online and for that it’s very important to have great marketing skills.

    Not only to help business owners but even to set up our own businesses. Learning and educating ourselves on this topic will become, in the long run, the foundation for a better life style and perfect financial independence. Probably the hardest part in all this is to establish a reputation and get the trust from people to know that we will do a good job. The idea you mentioned here of working for free for friends and family is a valid one because it adds value to the goal while helping other out.

  38. Tony Lee, thanks for the great information. You have offered me great choices on what I need to choose from since am very new in this online business. My take is on Social media  marketing and content creation in the near future. Great work boss. I am actually going to share this on my facebook page.

  39. Hi Tony, I want to gain more experience in the field of Freelance Digital Marketing Consultant, so one day I can earn money with it. Thank you for sharing the platforms where we could find potential jobs. My main interest is in SEO and social media marketing. What’s your favourite training platform for these skills?

  40. I have thought about doing this once my own websites start producing more income. Right now even though I do all those on my own sites I don’t think I have yet to reach the qualifications to market myself. Maybe for Search engine optimization but not for the others. Thank you for laying out the list of possibilities in the future. I did bookmark for some inspiration to reach for.

  41. Thank you for making the business of online marketing seem doable and approachable. I think many of us are concerned about becoming a brand in the industry. How do we do that? I think it is more than just doing work in a niche, but I am not quite sure what it entails. There are some people who are marketing consultants for specific industries and they are a marketing leader in that industry, like professional sports. Do clients want someone to just work on their marketing and not the marketing for their competitors in the industry? How does an online marketer handle that scenario?

  42. Gary Vaynerchuk in his video said something that I didn’t realize until now. He spoke that attention is key to everything. That  word caught my attention, I immediately related to traffic in SEO words. Becoming a freelance digital marketer is to see those opportunities coming up from traffic. 

    As you said it, making money from home, a niche very competitive, you looked it as an opportunity to keep growing. I believe that all boils down to take your risk until mastering something and keep moving.

    This article, and the video as reinforced me to not to quit, keep going and expect an opportunity, and take actions.

    Thanks for the overview of all the possibilities that a freelance digital marketer has.

  43. Tony your excellent post on Freelance Digital Marketing Consultant is very interesting and informative for me and others. As you have said the job of a marketing Consultant is numerous and depending on their skills. 

    You also explained the different tasks that are performed by a marketing consultant. There are areas you can find clients as well to make your online business a success. You explained that there are a lot of areas that the consultants can be engaged in with respect to niches. 

    Thank you also for advising us on where we can get specific training on any of those specific areas of a digital marketing consultant. Like the training we do here at Wealthy Affiliate, we train and do the tasks as well so that we learn better and improve our specific skills. I am very interested in learning any of those skills and will definitely visit your website to learn those skills. 

    Your posts are very important to us to advance in our online business.    

  44. The one think that I will say is you made the point several times that becoming a online Consultant takes patience and time
    to master the skills that many do not have or for those that have some of the required skills to take the time to blend or add more advance skills for task which are necessary to enhance the amount of money one needs now and in the very near future.

    i will certainly give a copy of your post to all of my grandschildren and hope the information will give them a head start, if they take advance of the information.


  45. Thanks for the informative article! I have never considered becoming a digital marketing consultant before. Right now, I don’t really feel “qualified” to help others with this, since my website isn’t ranking or making any money yet. Still, it’s definitely something to think about for the future! Working for myself is definitely something I would love. For now, it’s just a pipe dream, but I’m determined to make it happen!

  46. Hi Tony. 

    So many skills in becoming a freelance digital marketer that it seems overwhelming. I am still learning as much are becoming more advanced. Good thing business applies to all niches. Anyone in any niche can be driven to learn this.Your videos are very motivational and help me stay on top of my game.  

  47. Wow, you have a lot of great content on your website! 

    I’m sure anyone, including myself, could get lost in all the content you have here to offer others. I loved the Gary Vaynerchuk video! Very inspiring! I I will be sure to check your site frequently as you have a lot of great content available. 

    Thank you for following Vaynerchuk’s advice and giving so much content away for free. I am sure you will be very successful if you are not already! 

    All my best, 

    Mel Williams

  48. Working freelance online can be a great job, no doubt. 

    The opportunities and fields are endless. Every business within every niche needs the expertise of a great digital marketing consultant in order to be successful online. No business that is online will last long without the help of a skillful professional in order to maximize its exposure on the world-wide-web.

    I have been using Fiverr for some time now and I got my website logos designed by a rather sweet chap from Pakistan. And it was really cheap too. 

    These are great services and if we have any expertise, we can easily become Freelance Digital Marketer Consultants.


    • Hey sir this is what we call short and sweet, the content is so much readable. Working from home has been my dream long time ago, freelance digital marketing should be one of the department in my business, i’m impressed with the way you elaborate the places to look into when we want to start with such platform, i’m looking into it as we speak i will be in touch IF i find difficulties,

  49. Hi Tony, I never thought that I could also be a Freelance Digital Marketer. Your post details what other services I can offer as a Freelancer. As a Virtual Bookkeeping for 3 years, I can offer to my existing clients the Digital Marketer services. I will do some research and study on your recommendation so I can start on it as soon as possible..

  50. I find this article very informative and useful Tony. It’s helps facilitate a dedicated mind to one of the fast growing sectors of business in the world today and your explanation on digital marketing really clears the air on all its about. I feel I have gained an immense amount of knowledge from this article and feel confident that with it I can venture into digital marketing as it interests me. Thank you, Tony

  51. This is a must needed article on freelance marketing. Content marketing is the number one method to becoming an online marketer and most who start out are successful within a year. It is important to research the keywords with great tools that are mentioned and to interact on social media. I will be sharing your article with my social media followers as provided great refreshing advice.

  52. Thanks for the article.  

    I am incredibly interested in how to be able to work from home!  I have a two-year-old daughter, and during this pandemic, daycares are closing, schools are only open a few days a week, I need flexibility.  

    I think creating and developing these digital marketing skills are incredibly important for working online, at home, and having flexibility.

    You were mentioning the competitiveness in the make money from home niche, would digital marketing fall under that competitive category?  Are all facets of working from home competitive? Or are there less competitive ones? Let me know your thoughts.  I can’t wait to see what these training programs offer!


  53. Great information you put out here. 

    Having a business online is extremely competitive, and reaching out to someone to help you set up your site for success is extremely hard to do. 

    Many obstacles can be in your way, as many of us work full time jobs, limited finances, discouraged with not seeing success quick enough.   

    Your information is easy to follow, and you instill confidence in others with your skill to help us build our business model so that we can all be successful as well.  

    I look forward to reading and learning more.


  54. Hello Tony, 

    I have been wanting to start an online business now from 2010. I can still remember when I searched online the words “how to make money online” I first learned all about WordPress and designing my first site. Then moved on to SEO and all kinds of marketing techniques. I just never really put the effort in until I started reading your post. It gave me the confidence to take another hit and try again. 

    Thank you for this Tony.

  55. Wow, it is very clear that the direction how to earn money online absolutely found this site because you are offering new knowledge who are serious in online world that you will guide 100%, of course clients attract those people already earning money online and follow for what they did and trust is there. Thank you for this information. 


  56. This sounds very interesting.  Will it be easy for me to learn it even I don’t have a vast knowledge on digital marketing and software?  Also, can I combine this with my present venture which is affiliate marketing?  I would love to gain more knowledge on Digital Marketing Consultancy since this will give me the freedom to work at home.  Thank you!

  57. I enjoy a post where I learn something new. A digital marketer is for sure a new field that is well paid lately. Ultimately, all advertisement will be done online so this is a good topic to start discussing about.

    The structure of the topic is great and easy to understand. Great work
