    How many of you guys are full time internet marketers?

    How many of you guys have another job as your main, but you do internet marketing for a few extra bucks?

    How many of you are still going to school (like me), but you do internet marketing for a few extra bucks?

    Well, not literally a few extra bucks, but you get what I mean.

    I'm just saving up to buy some awesome clothes, shoes, and a sweet mac laptop.

    I am now a full-time IM-er and do some part-time SEO consulting for a local sports betting firm.

    It took a while to get there though, and there is definitely no "magic bullet", at least not one that anyone will discuss openly.

    I would call myself a full-time internet marketer.
    But I also do other things that I enjoy offline and earn some money doing them.
    I'm not rich but it pays the bills and lets me ski, stay up late, sleep in late,
    choose to roll over and go back to sleep if I want to, go to the beach ( soon! )
    instead of going to work.

    When I was in school I was asked what my idea of success was.
    My response was "To not need to get out of bed before 5pm if I don't want to".
    So I guess I have acheived that.
    Now I need to think about saving for the future, so I am trying hard to
    maximize my time and diversify my sources of income to do that.

    BHW has certainly showed me some financial routes I'd never thought of.

    Thanks guys.

    EDIT! WOW! I just saw that my status changed from Newbie to Registered Member!

    wouldnt have it any other way ;)

    MontyzPython is right though it certainly hasnt been a walk in park to get where i am today either its taken blood, sweat, tears, cursing, determination, balls - not to mention the patience of a saint and a ton of researching and reading! LOL

    I am student and do this on the side. It doesn't pay tuition but it certainly helps with some extra spending and food money

    definitely would agree. I am a part-time internet marketer, full time traveler and work less. Usually work with CL changes etc. beyond that I work an hour or two a day and close deal on the other 5 hours. :)

    LOL

    Full Time!!! And I Wouldn't Change It For Any Other "Job"! Unless It Brings A Winning Lotto Ticket!...but then again, that money would most likely be invested back into IM! :AR15firin

    Hoping to be full time soon! The only thing I need is quality CPA traffic to stay under the radar, can anyone help?

    i am 18 doing this from about 2 years when i started there was no one to tell me any thing , like id didn't even have an idea about whats affiliate ? :D
    i am from pakistan still here most of the people don't know that they can make money online . right now i work at company which is a seo service provider .. its name is ebizsubmit ... i work there as a link popularity officer .. in short being an IM-er is much better then any other thing else .. although i am not making enought from my personal work may be cuz it require some money to invest ... and i don't have that much :D
    my father died when i was 12 ... and even my mother isn't educated ... but still what ever i have i am thank full to GOD ..
    sorry if somebody really reading my comment .. i know u will be getting bored :D

    I also do seo for a living (now for myself exclusively).

    I used to do it as a profession, now I professionally earn my living from it... and enjoy all the benefits that come with it. Wealth is in the success, and it is separate from the money.

    You need a lot of skills to be an IM'r - it takes a bit to learn all you need to know to not only understand, but effectively implement what you learn, and then improve on it.

    Help others... it will help you. Your Karma comes from your daily activities, positive or negative - take responsibility for your environment, attitude, and success - or lack of.
