    If you work full-time at IM, you really should be making $1k/day (revenue, at least) after a few years. If you're not, you've either created yourself a job, haven't built a sustainable business, are comfortable with less or aren't focused on the bigger picture.

    Don't be put off by the people who post all day on forums and don't actually make any money. They are just the vocal minority or kids. Most bigger earners don't have time to post at all (unless it's important for their business - e.g. service providers).

    Good to know but if we take off the service providers.
    and focus on the affiliates (CPA,CPS etc) they still got chance to earn these sums like in past or this days are gone?

    Sure, if they have adapted. It might have been easier 5 years ago, but that doesn't mean it's not possible now. As the industry has become mainstream, it's become even more important to build something sustainable, rather than focusing on the fast bucks.

    If you can make $1 a day then I don't understand why you can't make $1k a day. Its just all about scaling a working method. No rocket science as such. Takes some effort though

    Yes, in fact I do not understand why people are comparing past with nowadays. If it was so easy to make money back then why everyone have not done that? Mostly people are digging old but proven methods which are not profitable as it used to be in the past. If you will think different and follow the media and trends you will make even more than 1k$ a day as affiliate. You have my word.

    I think the main benefits to IM over a job is that in IM you aren't limited to your 5% raises each year. Also, you can end up working 10 hour days, but at least you have the choice of when to go to the gym or whatever you need to do. The internet is always evolving, so that means new products, new search terms and new ways to make bank. Don't put yourself in the limiting mindset that "it's too hard now", if you believe that you will never make sh!t.
