Before the forum trolls come in here, I'm kind of curious on something. I haven't been an active poster on here for a year+ now where I used to spend a lot of time on the forum. The internet has changed sooo much in just the past couple of years it's ridiculous.. it seems like now every one and their dog is trying to make massive amounts of money online and every one is trying to monetize every thing. Take 2006 for example when Travis Sago introduced people to the idea of Bum Marketing.. it wasn't a new concept, but he needed a gateway to promote Wealthy Affiliate and a lot of people never thought of the idea. Bum Marketing very quickly pretty much dried up after a year or so. Now a days: If you don't have a steady-online income already is it worth it to try to jump back into the game? Before I gave online a break, I tried doing some e-whoring and classified posting but I got nowhere.. It's just not something I'm good at I guess and even every day regular people weren't dumb enough to fall for these sites or sign up to them none the less. This isn't a CL/E-whore complaint thread though, it's more a curiosity post. I haven't been here in a while and honestly I'm seeing a lot less threads pertaining to methods and making-money but now I'm seeing just a lot of people trolling each other and people raising their post count with non-sense. It's sad too because this community used to be like a smaller tight-knit family where people shared golden eggs freely and they didn't worry about some dick trying to package them up into e-books and head to other forums. My real question: Is it worth it? trying to get back into internet marketing if you don't have money to back you up or online steady income presently? It just seems next to impossible to compete with millions of other people now-a-days.. either that or I'm just over-thinking it. What are people's thoughts on this?
