    Is Internet Marketing dead from all the hype and competition online? As many people might think this, the opposite is actually true.

    The Internet is growing and becoming much more resourceful each year. Millions of peoples are now coming online to take educational classes, chat with old friends, play online games, or pay their bills. In addition, you also have social sites where millions of people flock to discuss specific subjects such as American idol, Nascar, or Golf. With this in mind, it is clear to see that Internet Marketing is not irrelevant and is becoming more relevant and a possible business platform for someone seeking to escape the rat race.

    But there is a ?catch?, and that is over 80% of people never get a check of over $100, 15% get the occasional check and the remaining 5%; or the ones who are willing to treat it as a real business, are the ones who get the monthly checks.

    Education is Key?

    There?s literally dozens of books advertised online on websites that make claims of easy earnings. Most of the programs out there though are what they call ?rehashed stuff? meaning someone gets resell rights of other people?s ideas and market them under their own name, or sum up another programs ideas and give it a new name. This is common , but a factor to keep note of.

    Despite all books and resources, what internet marketing and making money online boils down to is how to implement the knowhow. No books nor any marketing courses can come anywhere close to pure practical experience. This is the same with any business venture; whether online or offline.

    What?s the Verdict?

    If you want to make money online learning how to market is the first step. The key is planning and setting up basic strategies that can aim at paid or free traffic, and executing these strategies successfully. The activities with the highest leverage should be key also to anyone looking to go from ?0 to 60? online, and these include keyword research, finding profitable markets and partners, and getting information on affiliate networks, guides and a variety of valuable resources.

    By treating internet marketing like a real business, applying a business-like mindset to your goals, results, and activities, things will eventually begin to snowball and you will naturally come up with better ideas, resources, and even products that can lead to greater success.

    IM will never die as long as the internet doesn't.

    It is actually much bigger than before. More and more people are buying stuff online. I think the future is in online retailers. I even see people around me, who don't use internet so much, are buying clothes and electronics online. Stuff online is usually cheaper than in local retail stores.

    Just because the hype is over (or maybe it's still going, I have no clue) doesn't of course mean it's dead. But it seems that those cases like Amazon, Facebook, Google, and whatever are kind of over.

    "Internet" Marketing is such a small piece of the larger Marketing puzzle.

    I made $10,000 selling a piece of software online. I made 10x that selling a piece of software offline.

    That doesn't mean offline is bigger or better. It just means don't limit yourself. Billionaires were made LONG before the Internet existed.

    The reason the percentage of the successful IM community is so low is because people don't want to do the dirty work, most people take up IM because they were pitched some idea that working from home is easy as 1 2 3, and they give up as soon as they realize that actual brain power and dedication is needed.

    Actually, I believe now is the time to start expanding. More and more people are going online, internet sales are increasing, and many are discouraged from IM.

    With that being said, all business models have to evolve with the changing times, so if you don't keep up with the new trends and test out new methods, then your IM will fail just like a real business would.

    Yes, education is key. That also includes educating yourself.

    The post by original poster who started this thread is a "Cut & Paste" article. The same article is posted on numerous forums. Do a search on google.

    I guess the OP is trying to increase the post count.

    Yeah, totally over.... Waste of time.. Go get a 9-5 while there are still some out there!

    I am just tired of all this MLM and Matrix bs. People thinking they can make "moniez" by bringing in a few people, and then expecting those people to magically bring in 100s of people and make them rich.. laziest bunches of SOBs in the MLM/Matrix areas.. All they want is free, isntant, and don't have to lift a finger...

    Anybody else tired of these stupidass post.

    ZOMG I HAVE TO ADD SOME FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK BY HAND. IM IS DEAD!!!!

    Give me a break the reason the count is low because people are lazy, one you break through you will become rich from doing thing most people cant do. This is the most cut throat industry in the world.
