Most people dream of starting their own business and creating a life that lets you travel and have fun while getting paid. The problem is that 99 percent of people don’t follow through. But accomplishing it is easier than you think by creating a digital social media marketing agency.
Tai Lopez, member of The Oracles, says, “If I had to start out again with no money or experience, I’d find small businesses to pay me up to $10,000 per month to manage their social media.”
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you can’t miss Lopez on social media. He’s leveraged social platforms to launch dozens of new businesses and scale existing ones.
“I’ve spent $20 million running crazy social media experiments to see what works and doesn’t, making tens of millions in the process.”

Lopez stresses how this creates an opportunity for you. “The secret to making money is to become valuable,” explains Lopez. “Even knowing how Facebook and Google work can be a game changer for a small business. They’ll gladly pay you forever if you can keep helping their bottom line.”
Lopez estimates that the average customer will pay you $1,500 a month—even if you work part-time. Five clients conservatively makes you $9,000 a month. That’s a six-figure business.
Lopez teaches how to create your own marketing agency with social media and get small businesses to hire you. Here are seven steps to start immediately.
