    Yes, I know there have been similar threads like this, but they were focused on overall IM. However, I'm curious about the PPD money making - how do you explain it? If you go full throttle and actually spend 5-10 minutes explaining exactly what you do, you will sound like some scammer, bad person and so on.
    How do you YT + PPD guys explain ''what do you do'' to friends, family and acquaintances?

    Yes, I agree "Why"?

    If they are curious about what you are doing, just tell them "I make money off the internet through a variety of different sources."

    Plain and simple. Most people will not want you to explain from there as there are still trying to process "You can actually make money of the internet?"

    I don't even waste my time trying to explain it anymore. I just tell people I do 'online marketing.' If they ask for more detail, I say 'like twitter and stuff.' Usually they are still confused, but will stop asking questions after that.

    You'll only sound like a scammer if you are offering fake files and if you are then just say you are offering legit files.

    No one will give the IM idea but you can find it over here in free.

    Just say you make money online, leave it at that. If you're banking hard, whip out an uncashed commission check, and say "here's an example. I may or may not cash it, ho hum."
