    Title says it all - Who is your IM Idol? We're going to start interviewing Internet Marketing superstars over the next few weeks and I figured I'd reach out to you guys first to see who you're interested in hearing from. It doesn't matter if they are an Blogger, Affiliate, Media Buyer, Email List Owner, Product Creater, or even running an internet related Startup; everyone has an idol who keeps them motivated. Is there anyone who you look up to (or got you started) in the IM space?

    My IM idols are the non-circlejerky people you never hear about or see bragging about what they're earning online.

    lol so not the quote/unquote gurus, I think that's fair. Anyone you've learned a lot from or who's helped you out personally or via content they've produced?

    While I do not really have an idol, I have much respect and have learned quite a bit from Ruck.

    Gary R. Beal. The man's got crazy skills and he's down to earth. I've talked to him in a IM conference a while back and the dude is golden. Makes tons of money ranking gaming niche sites and I've never seen a display of modesty as this guy shows.

    eldarado - think of a IM venture and he's making a shed load of money from it already. He lives on the side of a mountain in his specially built mansion. He doesn't have a internet connection because hes so embedded with the net, if he thinks it happens. Some people say the reason you don't see him on IM forums is because hes a gent and if he did join all the ads would instantly change to his.

    Do people really have IM IDOLS ?
    There are some people I admire and respect but I certainly don't idolise them.

    I don't have an idol, but I think Frank Kern is funny, and he has some serious marketing skills.

    You can go to warrior forum and find your own idol.

    And end up buying tons of garbage ebooks.

    As for me - I haven't got IM idols.

    But people whom I really respect are (who are not full with BS):
    1) Diamond Damien http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/588090-who-diamond-damien.html
    2) Matt Cutts .. yep :)
    3) Eli the Computer Guy
    4) Owners of Internet Business Mastery http://www.internetbusinessmastery.com/

    People who have f**ked up their reputation in my eyes:
    1) harro - although he is an awesome money making machine I want to stay away from him
    2) Patt Flynn (separate topic)

    ...

    cool topic :)

    -----------

    f**k Kawasaki :) ... another lucky dude

    I think most of us hardly will call the people we admire here, idols. Personally I liked grafxextreme, but I wonder where the hell he is now...The old man does good intergration of the online and offline marketing, and makes it look cool.
    Well basically him, and other impressive people arounf here that I +rep and give thanks to.. We all are idols, we just have to show it. Goodluck everyone
