    Hey guys,

    I am wondering what other internet marketers do in their office in free Time?

    I recently joined a company and I am a trainee here.although we have to stay in office daily for atleast 9 hours our training sessions never goes beyond 5-6 hours giving us a lot of free time.

    We have access to internet but almost all social network ,blog sites and all money making forums are blocked here so I don't understand how to utilise my time here .

    In last 4 days I tried to utilize my time by making around 45 gmail accounts and 15 squidoo lences (squidoo not yet blocked yet). But I am already bored doing same stuff daily :(

    So I m looking for some more ideas from you guys about how do u utilize ur time in ur office free times.

    Thankyou in advance :)

    The only time I had a job like that, I would open up notepad and create content while I had downtime. I could bang out several good items per day.

    Think of a couple sites, open up notepad, write all your
    ideas down, do some keyword research, build the site when you can,
    do some seo, monetize, keep or flip, rinse and repeat.

    The question is why are you still working in the office and not at home for youself. All the tools are here to get the job done.

    That was me in 2009! I would bring my laptop and sit it next to my office monitor and IM with my BHW mentor. I would go to the the Wendy's at lunch and EWHORE.

    I wish I knew about BH IM back when I had a security job and 8 hours of free time while earning a check.

    Do you have a smart phone? Whenever I've got downtime on the bus I whip it out and often do stuff on there. Get 3g on it and you could browse BHW. Its not being "productive" as such but then again it is, isn't it? I have learned an invaluable amount by just hanging around and reading as well as putting it into practice. People here are really nice and give good advice for a supposed black hat place, LOL. ;)

    So if you get bored writing articles, mix it up with some BHW.

    Of course, if you can get away with having a laptop or some form of tablet, use that instead. But a cellphone is really easy to hide.

    The only prob is in this mnc the security department's software automatically collects screenshots and registry settings files almost everyday and at random time.so I might not want to put myself in danger :)
