    I was filling a form recently and they asked what was my occupation.

    Well, then I was thinking... can we just write it down as "Internet Entrepreneurs" or "Online Entrepreneurs" instead of Internet Marketers?

    Google's definition:
    en·tre·pre·neur

    /ˌäntrəprəˈno͝or/
    1. A person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on financial risk to do so.
    2. A promoter in the entertainment industry.

    So I guess it fits the definition? We organize by building a website, outsourcing articles (maybe or by writing yourself), then using SEO softwares ot services to rank it. And there's financial risk as it can bank or just get shelved deep inside Google's SERPs.

    What's your say? Or what do you put as your occupation or when people ask you?

    Owning domains, making money off of them, designing websites for members and local clients, making a good amount of money from affiliate networks, and eventually turn that into an L.L.C makes you an entrepreneur in my mind. Obviously, you have expand upon your own ideas to form the LLC, but you understand where I am coming from. If someone things I am wrong, please point me in the right direction.

    On what fact is that based or is that your opinion?

    Not every Internet marketer is an Entrepreneur. Moreover, few of them are IMHO.

    For example those who created Fiverr are entrepreneurs.
    Those who put a wordpress blog together and started to promote Amazon offers are most likely not.

    An individual who, rather than working as an employee, runs a small business and assumes all the risk and reward of a given business venture, idea, or good or service offered for sale. The entrepreneur is commonly seen as a business leader and innovator of new ideas and business processes.

    My friend used to live on a farm, in one of his fields they used to have a stream and what was left was gravel and pebbles.

    He made £32,000 in 1 summer from selling gravel to gardening places and local people.

    That is entrepreneurial of him.

    He wouldn't call himself one, most people for example that have "I'm an entrepreneur" on their twitter bio's really arn't.

    It's a label that is thrown around too much.

    I just usually say "sales manager or administration assistant" you'll fly under more radars than a stealth bomber with camouflage underpants.

    I call myself unemployed because I do less work than someone on the dole.

    I was typing a little fast because I am a little busy, I edited my post to reflect upon the knowledge and capital you gain lead up to you becoming a legitimate business. However, on forms I just put Website Developer or Reputation Manager.

    I would never put entrepreneur as my occupation on a form...because the person reading the form reads:

    "Oh, they're unemployed...got it."

    I've got about a hundred different answers (and have given probably all of them) when people ask me what I do for a living or when I need to write it down. Just a few are:

    internet marketer
    web designer
    web developer
    retired
    invented dice
    (alright that last one was only just the one time, but it was funny)

    Sadly, some people on the forum are like that and I guarantee he won't say that he did. To grow pubes, you'd have to have balls ;).
