    Programming/coding is the most difficult and stressful job in the IM (or IT related) industry for me. I think I'll quit this programming job and start to sell beats soon. Music production will be my main job, I don't want to code for the rest of my life.

    Manual article spinning where I want readable and 95%+ unique articles. I've not found somebody who will do it to my own standard so I'm still doing it myself. It takes hours and bores the hell out of me!

    writing content is also one of the most boring and stressful job in IM (I am referring to good content here).

    Most difficult does not equal most boring.

    I would say the 2 most difficult areas of IM are:

    1. Coding
    2. Membership sites

    Article writing. Simply because it's a grind and churn type of business where you will only get a small amount of money for hard days work.

    That's why everyone needs writers.

    hardest thing staying committed to the job, even for me after 6 yrs here
    going 6 products i still have days i think fck it.

    2nd hardest is dealing with idiot buyers who want a product for peanuts
    and want u on beck n call 24/7

    lastly not loosing your temper when people expect to much [ i failed that 1 ]

    I think SEO is debatably the hardest thing you can do. Not because it's complicated, but because it can be such a fine art to get right, not to mention the amount of link building that needs to be done, if you're doing everything yourself.

    I'd say programming is a close second too. Although, I do enjoy a good challenge, limited as my coding skills may be.

    yes i remember the
    "you betta answer my emails immediately or I am going top chargeback and spend the rest of my life bad mouthing your name/company on the net.."

    "I bought your product yesterday but still haven't made any profits..refund me right away"

    "i'll ask you 50+ questions for 30 days then chargeback.."

    "I bought last year and would now like a refund.."

    " I can barely read/write or think...make me a millionaire by next week"

    It's a sad state of affairs on the general public. They are clueless. And if they can screw you they will.

    Dealing with the dreggs of human society that have no clue, no money and no decency. F*** that!!!

    when you put your eggs in a big companies basket what do you expect? You are at the mercy of their whims.
