    So as an affiliate marketer or being part of the blackhat world, when somebody comes up to you and talks about being in whatever it is (doctor, teacher etc.) and then it's your turn to talk, what do you call yourself?

    I just say Marketer, because when I say Internet Marketer they ask 1 million questions about it and I hate explaining.

    Being in the adult marketing that is a question that always seems to pop up and can be hard to answer, girlfriends have always been cool and supported me and male friends have always loved the fact that they had a mate that is in porn, but to get out of them sticky situations I created a web design,hosting,seo business and now tell them that, even have proof of websites that I built for so called clients, my mates! But I find that telling people that you work on the internet, they never seem to ask anymore questions!

    I normally say that I'm a web developer, but the one time that I said "Internet Marketer" I got the most confused reply: "So like, you market the Internet? I thought everybody already knows about the net."

    I'm going to stick with "web developer" for now.

    Well I usually say my company provide seo and online marketing services to businesses and drive customers to their online stores. Sometimes the person I talk to is a little more nosy and ask what companies I have done business with. I then give a example of a popular site that is well known. People are usually impressed after that.
