I tell people I'm a piano player in a whorehouse and the tips are pretty good.
I always said that I'm in advertising business, but I do it with computer.
Everybody know advertising... and if I do it with computer, they usually think it's no difference
that im the blue power ranger
from the original power rangers...
and i saved alot...
I've been getting this question ALOT lately because I am recently unemployed... Friends from my old work are checking up on me to see how I'm doing and wanting to know what I'm doing now... I've tried to explain (leaving out critical details) and I have yet to have anyone understand how you can "make money out of nothing"... So my new tactic is just to tell people I'm selling shit on ebay and stuff... if they start asking what I sell I just say "whatever I can get my hands on" and if they get real pushy and want to know specifics I just say I go to thrift stores and garage sales and then re-sell the shit. And yes, I have had the 3rd degree even further and then I just get frustrated and say, "I buy anything that is dirt cheap, and sell iot for a profit... you name it... Then just to change the subject I get real elaborate and make up some outrageous story... my favorite so far is, "I bought a bunch of dvd-r disks once and they were full of home made gay porn videos, so I mostly copy those and sell them... then I start getting real descriptive about what sort of bizarre sex acts were on the disks, start getting real raunchy and then tell them I'm making so much money on it that I'm gona start my own gay porn empire and tell them if they REALLY want to make some money online they can be an actor in my first film!. The conversation usually changes gears real quick
oops, never answered Q, went on a rant. I tell people I do search engine marketing
confuse the f**k out of them and leverage!
haha well since I dont make any money from this, it isnt a problem for me!
I usually keep it short and simple. I tell people I am in the business of "Internet Marketing", but 9 out of 10 people are still very confused over this explanation. "What's Internet Marketing" they ask? I tell them, "I basically drive traffic and revenue to online establishments" END OF STORY
Internet Marketing, Advertising, Software Development (I'm a programmer), and Web Design
I get asked what I do a lot by my bank concerning my business banking account, but it's really easy to pull it off because I have an LLC setup.
I tell them I make a killing online, pop out a couple of paystubs that are over $5000.00 show it to them. then they ask how do I do it, I just tell them that I am not a book or a teacher, if you want to know how to do it figure it out yourself. but i am a bit moody.....
You cracked me up w/ this post Sanitarium. I've grown my hair long and got a bunch of tattoos. And I'm big...6'2" and I look like I just got let out of some maximum security joint. People look at me and just assume I'm shady and I don't try and change their minds. My parents have know idea what to think of me. It's GREAT
PS: I'm actually a nerd that spends every waking moment online.
But how do you drive traffic and revenue to them?
Can i see your bankbook?
No way, you faked it.
Okay can i join your team?
Oh wow there really is a secret society in the internets.
So how do i make money now?
Good post butterfly, that's essentially what we are all capable of doing, we should all be millionaries
Well the idea is they'll laugh it off if you tell them that since criminals don't usually tell the world.
Hand them my business card.
LOL...i just tell ppl i sell "stuff" on the internet n change the subject
Why not just say the truth?
I post dozens of daily posts pretending to be a girl, and then chatting to horny guys all over the USA, and eventually making them sign up on things they never wanted, and thus I get paid.
Or you can try "Secret Service" style:
"I do cloaking. Can't say anymore..."
got my account banned for cloaking at a few places, so went to work 'legallly' for offline business wanting to make more money, enquiries, leads online. this is the way to go people, there are alot of greedy people out there
Why not just say I make websites?
It's the simplest. Then you can say that making websites is very hard or something.
I'm not in the stage yet to say this stuff, just started.
But if someone asks me I'm going to say oh well I just click the launch button on my website and I make a million dollars.
