    I was watching a video on Ted and it made me think about this(Link is given below. Cant embed it here sadly due to bhw restrictions)

    ted.com/talks/simon_sinek_how_great_leaders_inspire_action.html

    The video says that the world's greatest leaders are driven by a cause not by money. We in IM are all driven by money. We never think how can we help someone through our marketing talent. We never care about it. Do we? Well some but majority of them don't I feel

    How do you think we IMer's can change someone's life in positive way or help the society, while keeping money as the secondary target?

    What kind of IM are you doing?

    IM'ers inherently make other people money through the work they do.

    When we succeed, others succeed.

    ...Or are you playing a different game?

    You can do almost nothing. If you're so concerned about it then IM isn't for you.

    I can make better lifes of people I love or just those who are around with earned money or just by being kind etc, but it is what most of people can no metter if they work online/offline. I am ok with that fact.
    Basically I have some other problems to take care of rather then thinking "Omg how can I be of use for the ociety in general".

    But you aren't helping the common people by selling those crap products right? Maybe you are making the product creators rich but we all know the truth and not to forget promoting those CPA offers. What benefit are you giving away to the other side? This always made me thinking.

    IM'ers help business owners get more business.

    IM'ers help blog owners get noticed, get more traffic, get more

    IM'ers sell products to targeted customers who are looking for those things.

    CPA offers are basically lead-generation.

    This business is marketing, and all the good(and bad) things marketing provides relates to IM.

    What made you make the thread?

    Yes, I'm not and I do not care. If they buy that shit they have free money or are just stupid. Maybe they will learn not to trust some random fuckers in the internet and it will safe more money for them.
    But you can view it from other point. You earn money then go to your local shop and buy some shit like food or clothes or new cell which makes them happy.

    I think in this or that way any marketing is some sort of scamming people.If you are not ok with that fact just move on, get other job.
    You can also develop yourself a legend like the prev.poster did and print it so that you will read every day that you help some one.

    Depends on the type of IM you're doing right? I'm currently selling as affiliate, what do I contribute?


    • Buyer - pays for the products he wants, gets what was promised him. WIN
    • Vendor - receives money from the buyer that bought his product. WIN
    • Affiliate (me) - receives a commission for promoting vendor's product. WIN

    Other than that you can always donate your money to charity or something...

    And get your money stolen by some sneaky motherfuckers instead of being given to the people who are really in need.

    I am constantly helping the world by providing porn in order to reduce criminality. More Porn, less crimes. No matter how many times I get banned by social networks, I will not turn my back against this noble task of, and I quote Reinstecker, "Providing other guys' jackoff needs".

    I sell service, and I love doing it because I love helping people... Even the ones that I never met in person.
    So, IM is my way!

    I am not attracted to IM for money it is for a lifestyle where I can travel when I want otherwise I'd work in property finance, like I was, on 100k easy. But I had to work 5 days a week and deal with fucktards had to wake up at 6am lame. I prefer to sleep in chill on the net and travel wherever I want!

    Not all charity organizations are corrupt, though...
