    Hey guys.

    As you can tell, I'm quite new to this whole Internet Marketing world. I have been reading about a couple of things, and learned some basics about keyword research, SEO to rank for those keywords, product marketing, etc ..

    However, I have a question. Before I ask this question, please note that I am very willing to put in time and effort to learn and learn and learn, do not doubt that for one second. Now, my question is, given the fact that I'm a university student who will graduate next year (I'm studying accounting btw), and given the busy schedule I will have when I start my first job, is it feasible to enter into the IM world looking for much?

    To make myself clearer, I am very willing to learn and put in time and effort, but only as one 24 hour day and physical body allows. What let me down was when I read that I would have to put in 8 hours a day of IM if I want to make anything worth it out of it. How true is that? Again, please note that I love to learn and do and achieve, but I am also realistic and want to know how realistic this journey would actually be for someone who has a job other than IM.

    Thank you very much for your time, I appreciate it.

    Hi there,

    Good question :)

    Whoever said you need 8 hours is speaking pretty generally. What you do in 8 hours and what someone else does in 8 hours could be very different. It's not always about time, it's about commitment, which it sounds like you have. If you really want to make it with IM, yeah, definitely start now. Get used to working hard though. If you want to work full time and start with IM, forget wasted hours watching TV, or going out drinking and having a hangover all weekend. Instead, learn to work smart and keep your eyes on the prize. Money doesn't come easy in any industry, and IM is no exception.

    Thankfully there is a lot you can outsource in IM, and also a lot you can automate.

    Good luck! All the hard work will pay off!
