    Might be a weird topic but to anyone that does business or marketing full time online do you think it had changed your social life vs. other fields. For example as a student you can meet people often if you want and also if you have a regular kind of job where as I think in some cases at least doing online business can mean minimal interaction when it comes to working.

    On the flip side to this doing online business can give people in some cases more freedom to travel or move around so I'm curious how you all think your career choice has effected this.

    Cheers

    I meet my college friends from time to time (once or twice a month). I don't know how I'll meet a person to marry by doing online marketing. Any tips guys?

    Yeah, IM can be quite isolating but you have to try and make time to meet up with people.

    For me it gives me more freedom but probably makes me a little less sociable to be honest because I dont have to go out much :)

    But then again, maybe I was unsociable in the first place and thats why this career suited me:)

    Yea. They think that working at home is not working at all. At least you can encounter some girls when you're in the office.

    I see what you did there.

    My opinion is that if you don't have a social life and you're not an extrovert person who likes meeting new people and who analyzes every type of person you meet you will not make it as an online marketer or as a marketer.

    A marketer is a person that sells stuff, any way you look at it. Either you're doing SEO, Social Media, Email Marketing, offline marketing, you're selling something. Without understanding PEOPLE and what drives them, motivates them, you will not be a successful marketer, EVER!

    Take the time and develop social skills if you have none, do awkward stuff each day that makes you force your limits. Learn human behavior and analyze a human's decision making steps. Be a people knower and you will be a good IM'er.

    The bullshit line "I work 20 hours a day and I don't have time for a life" doesn't stick. Why do you have to do everything yourself? That's why employees or automation is for. Make time to socialize or you will never get to the next level. Also, socializing is the most effective way of getting yourself set up for new opportunities or new business partnerships.

    Socialize, socialize, socialize. Set yourself the goal of meeting 3 new people per week. Then after you're comfortable doing this, set yourself the goal of meeting 3 new IMPORTANT people per week.

    In reality online jobs are the major cause of our social life's cut off. Although we get enough money from it to spend a luxury life but we pay too much against it while cutting off from friends and other family members.
    I missed too many religious and other events due to too much work load

    I'm pretty antisocial during the weekdays, but I make up for that by going out to the clubs with a bunch of friends on Friday / Saturday. I talk to a lot of people while I'm out, but I'm always drunk too. So drunk that I never remember what I was talking about with those people I talked to. So maybe that counts as being antisocial even during the weekends. :|

    This happens all the time in other fields. Not just online marketing. Think of all the freelance workers (there are more of them every year), writers, journalists, designers, etc.

    Anyone working from home, actually. I've been a freelance worker for the past 10 years and I'm still a sane person ;)

    I don't get to go out often, but I purposely make an effort to take a roadtrip every month or two to see friends (they live in a different part of the country), and take a break from work. It's unfortunate that it's so far away, but it's definitely nice to be able to take a few days off whenever I want.

    You have to make time for a social life. Once you are dong with school, your day to day forced social interaction falls to work. Obviously being self-employed and choosing to work alone impact this, so you will need to start making plans with people. Setup a time to get some coffee or lunch with a friend, or keep a day open in your week strictly to go socialize.

    It will take work to maintain any friendship (or any relationship). And there is no [Method], 2015/16 best Practice, bot software. Given that, decide what is is you need when it comes to your social life and be sure to work on fulfilling that. Chances are you aren't giving up much earning potential and the positive impact to your life will pay dividends.

    As for meeting people? Well that grows harder and harder as you get older. If you aren't dealing with forced social interaction, then you need to be in situations where it will bump into you. Think of your hobbies... Fitness? Great. Instead of that cardio session on the treadmill, start going to spin class, pilates, zumba, yoga etc. Maybe sign up for bootcamp. Who knows! Get creative.

    Stop trying to make or find an excuse. You managed to make money on the net, I am sure you can find a way to drive traffic to you.

    It starts with "Hello"
