    I mean i know there are lots of methods to make $100/day, $2000/mo, but are all these blackhat methods there for short term and for the real long term riches you have to go white hat? Or have to move away from IM completely and do something like ecomerce?

    :confused:

    there are many ways to turn blackhat into long term white/gray hat income

    I've even seen blackhat work for many years (just switching up methods)

    Way I see it, to start with you make various attempts on various niches. By far the hardest part, getting started. Then, once you have a little income, you can afford not to work 9-5. Then, you can invest all your time. You get more money coming in. Then, when you dont have time enough to do everything you want to, but some money to spare, outsource your efforts. It's definitely possible to keep growing and keep hitting new niches, increasing the speed of your build-up using money as a substitute for time. The sky's the limit.

    If you put your full effort towards the "short term" stuff, you'll eventually stumble upon something long term.

    I personally think the best way to make money online though is by launching your own product.

    nah. but thanks.
    There are 6,710,029,079 internet users worldwide.
    And you are doubting the possibility of making a shitload of money online.
    Well let me tell you something, you can make over a million dollars a day, every day. Without ever running out of people to make more money from.

    So there are more internet users than the population of the earth. Last time I looked countries like Sudan and such didn't look like they were connected.

    Of course you can get rich. I mean, look around the forum.

    The key to it, though is: learn quick and take action!

    Yes and no, let me give you a reality check. The internet is no different from the rest of the world; it follows basic economics. Only 2% of all people in the market will become "rich." Then again rich is relative. One person thinks rich is making $3-- a day and another $5,---,---. Making a hundred a day isn't that hard if you invest your time wisely. A thousand is pretty difficult because you are now more or less operating a business. The top 2% are multimillionaires and are completely staffed for their specialized operation.

    I know that some guys make $3000 and more, daily..
    and of course, there are many people with $3/day or $0.0/day.

    Black hat or white hat? some use blackhat only, others use whitehat only, and others mix.
    that means .. your knwoledge and your work will guide you to be rich or poor...

    Is there a limit to what you can make with IM? Because at the moment i'm in two minds as to what i should focus all my time into. Either IM or selling items.

    The Upside to IM is plenty, but dreaming about it doesn't get you anywhere. (Although its fun to do) If you want the $$$ start by trying to make $ / day, then $$ / day, then $$$ / day, the n$$$$$$$$$$$ / millisecond :p

    Bro, there are no limits on anything except jobs(your salary is the limit). If you make your own moves and are your own boss, the only limits there are are the ones you set for yourself, it's as easy as that. And to your question, no one can answer that for you, only you can. My only advice is to consider both and MAKE A CHOICE fast ans stick to it and do it. Time spent thinking, is time lost acting. just my 2 cents.

    Maybe there are 6 billion user accounts, but only a fraction of those would ever whip out a credit card online. A slightly larger number might enter their personal information somewhere. A good chunk of the rest are just killing time on the net.

    I would argue that the number of people to make money from is not increasing. Everytime someone gets fucked over by e-whoring or tricked into a CPA, that now becomes an informed user who won't let it happen again and people talk. Where do you think all the craiglist flaggers came from?

    They call it internet "marketing" for a reason. Most ppl never master the marketing part. With marketing you can take some fake like wrestling and make it into a billion dollar business. Master the marketing and the money will come.

    The internet is the largest market system ever conceived, and its popularity is increasing rapidly. If you can't make it here, you more than likely can't make it anywhere.

    Further to this, you don't need necessarily to find new revenue - just out-compete those who are taking the existing revenue. This is what SEO is all about.

    People actually spend money on the internet all the time. The great thing about IM is that most people - including most of the people I know - simply can't get their head around the fact that yes, there are millions of people out there who will click ads and who will purchase. Because of this, the number of smart, driven competitors is kept much lower than it otherwise would be.

    People just don't "get" that passive income is possible. They think "if you can get passive income from IM, why doesn't everyone do it instead of working a shitty 9-5 for a boss they hate"?

    One reason why everyone doesn't IM instead of work 9-5 is because they think like that instead of taking action. But usually, it's because the vast, vast majority of the population has no idea what internet marketing is, or has even heard of it.

    @Micallef: Thats shit dude. I guarantee over 80% ppl dont like their bosses. Its just that dont have a go on IM and they leave the scene. If you succeeded in Internet market that never says that other will as well. I can see millions of other ways to earn money and lose it as well. You cant just say they like to be pissed off.

    Felt bad .. so I typed in some words. Nothing personal though.

    $100 a day is very manageable, especially as you get a few established things in place that receive a decently steady stream of traffic day after day. Eventually, if you upload enough and create enough websites you'll get something that will bring you some consistent earnings.
