    How many of you do internet marketing for the money and how many of you actually "love" doing it?

    Eg. Something you love is something you'd do for free something that makes you really open up, passionate about it. ( listen to music, play guitar ) is some of the things I truely love.

    It's a combination of both...if either aspect was missing I'd possibly look into other avenues.

    Truth be known, I was doing this for fun back in the mid 90's (then I didn't do any of it for around 8 years) and now I'm starting to do it again and it's as much fun as I remember it being.
    The one major difference between marketing now and back in, say, 1996 is that back then (my opinion) the only thing that one could really make money with was porn, which is what I did. Obviously the consumers trust is at a level that you can market anything with the same results as Porn use to be back in the day.

    Edit: Naturally getting paid makes it more of an incentive but I really do have fun doing this stuff and always have.

    I do it for the fun but in fairness if I wasn't getting paid for the hours I put in I probably wouldn't be too happy either so I suppose it's a bit of both really. Either way it kicks ass on 9-5!

    I do it for the lulz.

    You have to love trawling through hours of code and then realizing that it was all for naught when you find what you want...IN ANOTHER FILE!

    God i love my job :D

    think what happens when you love the money ... a type of person who's only thinking about the '' profit '' and you are able and capable to do everything necessary to actually get them hard cash on hand lol .

    I do it for the money, because if it were free I dont think I would ewhore 15 hours a day. I tell you when that check comes in once a week, its sure does make it alot more fun! I do however write code for fun, I love creating applications, guess Im just strange though.
