    Because they are waiting for you to make a list like that, add Internet Marketer, sell a product or build an email base so you can bank off the idea.

    Just a guess though.

    Not really a "real" business. If you go to a bank and apply for a business loan, and you say that it's for an Internet marketing business, do you think they'll approve it? Nah...

    I was going to disagree but you do have a point. If we want to start an IM business we have to raise money for it ourselves as opposed to applying for a loan.

    Weird how I never noticed that.

    To be an Internet Marketer it requires more than $1,000 to get started unless you are doing some ceo sam type shit, to do Internet Marketing which is different means that you using it to promote a business in another industry. Most people do Internet Marketing, but they are themselves not Internet Marketers.

    Before it goes over someones head and they claim trolling.

    Buying an ad on Facebook to promote your business, doesn't make you an IM'r, just like buying a billboard doesn't make you a marketer. The persons you hire to design and come up the the facebook ad campaign and billboard campaign is the IM'r and Marketer.

    It's not something that is popular enough for the pop listicle writers to get wind of it. But this article has a few online "jobs" that could be a stepping stone to it, so it's close enough.

    If being able to get a loan from a bank was the criterion for something to be a business, a huge amount of businesses wouldn't be businesses... And there ARE ways to get investments into your IM business, you just need to market yourself as an entrepreneur and your business as some kind of startup.

    Of course it doesn't... I'm sure at least half of the successful internet marketers here started with less. Or they are not real internet marketers?

    Technically it does, especially if you do that on regular basis and it's the main thing you do even if you are not good enough for the elitists.

    Social Media Manager is actually on the list...

    But these days don't you need to have more resources than before, since the industry is much more developed?

    Wait isn't your that place you just mentioned an SEO service site and not an Internet Marketing service site?

    LP is still killing it in IM, we just don't market to the SEO world as I've found success in areas that are not straight up IM/SEO and did a bunch of label branding so that it is more universal but I know that you can still build a strong product and market it to a decent degree for under $1,000.00.

    As to a start up loan, that is a different dog. I don't think a bank would entertain a loan for a thousand dollars as the paperwork cost more than the return on the interest (well, that is extreme but a loan for 1K from a bank? I don't think they loan that low amount) but one could finance using a credit card.

    I do know a couple of guys right on this forum that have less than 1K invested in their businesses that are doing just fine and those are less than a year old. It is not always how much you spend but where you can market for pennies, or less than pennies, and generate a revenue stream. There is going to be elbow grease and sweat equity involved which costs nothing in actual dollars but does have a cost in "time" dollars but that is how any new small business starts.

    I'd never go to a bank for a start up myself; if I needed start up capital I'd be going to the VC world and giving up part of my future for the cash.

    It is great to hear that. Currently I have about $150 invested in my ventures and when I look around my room I see my tv that cost 2 times that my xbox one that cost 2 times that and my computer was 10 times the price of that it makes me realize ok A LOT more has to go into this. Its great to hear that 1000 can get you somewhere because I can dump that much or more if needed. I can also hustle that amount together pretty quickly too if needed. I'm just still in a phase where I'm trying to get a plan as to what exactly to drop it all on. My action plan as of now is actually just -

    if I'm interested BUY NOW figure the rest out later. - It is a great way of learning actually

    I don't know about you, but there are many people that have, that could and that will. What will make or break your business is rarely the money you have to invest but your skills, your business model, your resourcefulness and your dedication. Not only could you start a successful online business be it IM or something else for less than a $1000, there sure are cases of people that started with less than a $100. You just get a positive ROI and scale, why wouldn't that be possible? Sure, a larger budget gives you more opportunities and flexibility, but it's not the most essential piece of the equation. I really feel it's more of a skills game than a money-to-throw-at-it game.

    But if someone has no skills to begin with isn't it going to take more than just experience to really start a business that provides marketing services. You either spend the money to have all the tools right away, or you spend months and months earning just a few $ while gaining experience.

    If you have no expenses due to living at home, or student with all expenses paid by parents/financial aid, then yes you can start under $100, but its going to take a while before it gets anywhere. People that have expenses especially those with a family need something that will bring in money fast and is more reliable.

    Because many people fail in internet marketing and many are successful but did not publish his success to avoid taxes.

    We are working on offshore sites that do not know who the owner of the site.
    It is a world of freedom

    What good is an offshore site if you will be caught via banking records? You probably should be alluding to helping people commit tax evasion.

    Selling to people is an artform. while most people suck at it, the few that don't kill it at the bank everyday. That "list" was made for Adsense bruh, it offers little value.

    You can take that list and turn it into nice revenue by adding in a few {clikckbank|bizop|CPA|your own product} offers and share it around.

    To me there is a lot of value in the list if you shake it up, repurpose it to say, "The 10 Hottest and Easiest New Businesses To Start For Under $1,000.00!" and add in 3 or 4 of your own and then get it out where people are looking to start a business.

    I started my Internet business with way less than $1k. It could even be $50 or even less (For internet connection and whats-not). I can create a successful IM business with less than $1k today. Am doing that already.

    Let's start off saying "internet marketer" is like saying "everything" and saying "nothing", it doesn't really exists.

    Marketing on the internet is made up of:
    a company delivering traffic to his products or delivering traffic to the product of someone else.
    which means the guy/guys whos doing so are atleast to a decent extent:
    Copywriters
    Designers
    Media buyers
    "Data scientists"
    Have atleast really basic code skills and can work with most platform used to accomplish cited skills.

    Each of these skills, involves a lot more "sub-skills" as you may know.

    So marketing on the internet, is a topic, a source of promotion.
    but you can't really define a guy "internet marketer". At the most you can define a company a "digital media advertising agency" which is a company using said source of promotion either for itself or others.
