    I would assume most people are in it for money. Or do you enjoy it? What are your plans? Are you going to school for something? Discuss.

    At the moment, I don't see myself doing it long-term - I just see myself being extremely bored (same with any other computer-related jobs). Of course, that may change if I become an "expert" someday, travel and work :p ?

    My reason for internet marketing is because I want to have extra money when I get to the states for college.

    I do it because I love my work and have worked for S/W and Computer companies in the past, so to migrate to the web full time is great for me...

    The way I see it you're keeping up with a rapidly changing industry that's in high demand -- learning the good, the bad and the ugly of what's essentially core to every modern businesses.
    + it's the only thing that's manageable while being a full time uni student and the money is damn good... so much more $$ potential from time put in.

    I do it because it's the only way I've found that I can fully and completely exploit my potentials, ranging from a sometimes to-fucking-much active imagination to the will to sacrifice more than most for a goal, all working together to follow a certain path.

    It's the dream-job where the more work you input, the more ($$$) it outputs. IM for me is a life of your own schedule, rules and administration.

    And best of all?? I just fucking enjoy it everyday.

    What for: So my kids wont have to go into debt to buy a house/go to college/start a business when its their turn at the wheel

    Why IM Simples

    Looking for real returns - not nominal gains - so trading is OOTQ with ZIRP and all.

    It has to be a business.
    Ill never be Peter Thiel, or Craigslist guy - but there's plenty of room and plenty of money in the lower heavens

    Compared to bricks and mortar the internet offers:
    1. Low risk: low/No barriers to entry and opportunity cost in terms of resources ($/technical...), contractual and regulatory requirements
    2. Strong and long-term potential growth (internet raw numbers as well as market development) and feasible to scale

    Having the technical side, I need to understand internet as a market, in order to do business there.
    Sales and marketing is the lifeblood of business
    I've managed plenty of complex sales through consulting - although you never stop learning sales :)
    Therefore learning IM from the ground up to build long-term

    QED

    I like what I do as I write about things which I like (used to like doing). Oh and I like the money too.

    Started out with wanting some extra cash now i want to take it on full time :) Finished high school gonna stay out a year from college to see where IM could get me and if it picks up i just might stick to it and make a long term living . So far its great . Makin some nice pocket money and trying to scale it up so i can move out and pay my own rent and bills .
    Plus you work when you want , you work what you want and you'r your own boss .

    IM is addictive which makes you money but takes your back where you will lend time from the next day and at last the lessons learned will be countless in all aspects :D
