Answered by Thibault Lemaitre, digital marketing consultant
It was a pretty organic process: I was interested in Social Media, was spending all day long on Facebook and Twitter, not just sharing with people, but learning how others were using the platforms and trying to make the most of the new features.
From there, I contacted some influential entrepreneur on Twitter asking for an internship. And I ended up being an intern working on social media, writing blog posts, and supporting customers.
Since then, I've more or less always had this double-role of both marketing and support.
