    What is the best response to that question?

    I get asked a lot by my family, relatives, (neighbors lol) what I do to make a living and everytime they ask the question, I start acting awkward and my mind goes blank because there is so many things that I do (SEO, Affiliate Marketing, Flipping) and I don't think they will understand it. =/

    I do online / mobile marketing for offline businesses, so I just say a new-age business consultant, gets the main idea past (business consultant) and peaks curiosity on what's new-age. Might try the slinging e-crack though.

    My typical responses:

    • I created Google's search function, so they pay me each month.
    • You know that guy who created Facebook? Yeah that's me.
    • I work for the NSA
    • I sell drugs via email. You know all those viagra emails you get? That's me.
    • I work for the King of Nigeria. I send out emails to people around the world giving them free money. Sad thing is, people hardly ever reply.

    this is kind of surprising to me that people lie about what they do, why not just say internet marketing?
