I would start with building one for yourself, even if it’s just a nice simple ‘about you’ site. This will give people an insight into your ability and a point of contact.

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that you are also new to business?

If I was starting out now, my first step would be to directly approach the head of digital at a big agency for experience, or the owner of a smaller agency. Most of them are actually nice people so just find them and shoot them an email or call them, tell them your situation and ask of they have any junior gigs or jobs you can do.

This will give you experience on the tools and also expose you to best practice and build a network for when you are ready to go out on your own. I recently had a contract at a top agency who had a guy come in for a couple of months on an internship to test the waters, this turned into a full time job and a career change for him.
