    Hey BHW,

    Total newb here and I am super knowledge hungry. Saw a couple of peeps posting on their IM journey.

    IM is short for Internet Marketing.

    Stick around and read, read, read. You can learn to become
    an Internet Marketer yourself.

    Enjoy Your Stay! :)

    IM relates to the thousands of different types of internet marketing. Its more of a general term because there are so many different fields encircling this specific type of marketing.

    Internet money.

    The 50,000 foot view of IM is:
    Source of traffic -> tools/services/activities to generate that traffic -> direct traffic to an offer of some sort -> get money.

    On that particular subforum, it means Internet marketing.

    It can also refer to inbound marketing or instant messaging, although not as often on BHW.

    Normally, I would've told you to search for what IM means instead of telling you, but instead I'm going to link you to a glossary.

    Good luck! :)
