    I am just curious why most internet marketers are male...

    It seems like one of the more easier fields for a woman to be a big earner because there is a low barrier of entry and no one would even have to KNOW she is a woman. A person has no need to disclose their gender on a forum like this, people would probably assume a poster is male and also there is no glass ceiling or office politics. Income is only determined by ones hard work and "ingeniousness" and creativity. No one knows if the person is male or female, all that counts is how good you market, how sharp your landing pages are, how many sales you get.

    One is also not required to be extremely intellectual or super smart, all knowledge is out there for free on forums like this or on-line. All that is needed is common sense and the ability to read and comprehend methods and implement them.

    To me it seemed like a field that a woman can easily excel in it and no one would even KNOW she is a woman because anyone can dominate internet on-line, the playing field is soooo level and equal for all noobs alike. You get out by what you put into it.
    You cannot be discriminated against because your female etc like you could possibly at the workplace.

    I am sure there are females on here.. I am not even going to say if I'm male or female because I feel it is irrelevant, but IF I was a female I would not even tell anyone here since it's not necessary information to give out. All that matters is how much $$$ one makes, I would not find it necessary to "Tell" people I am girl in order to get attention (IF I was a female). I would just keep it to myself and keep hustlin'.

    I am just curious why more women are not into this field. It's not a "extreme male" field like military or sports. Its only internet marketing and just about everyone has access to a pc etc.

    So you're saying there is no importance as to whether someone is male or female, yet you seem to stress the fact you are female.

    I suppose the reason women aren't involved in IM is because it's seen as a "geek" type thing, similar to a computer programmer or something. Hence, women aren't associated with it.

    Cause it's a maaaaaaaaaaaaaan's world... lol. No really, it's a man's club. Are you going to be more likely to JV with a chick or a dude? It probably shouldn't matter but I think most times its going to. It's kind of like asking why more chicks don't do nascar or something. The abilities and opportunities are there. If you ask me, the smart woman that's going to dominate over the internet like you mentioned would probably be smart enough to pose as a man. Some things in life are just dominated by certain demographics, change is happening, albeit slowly.

    Interest in IM doesn't happen overnight.

    It usually involves being on a computer so much that you are interested in making money with it (usually by hearing about people making money with this method etc). Who is mainly on computers w/o their main sites being myspace facebook etc? Guys.

    I think a lot of IM newbies get their influence from forums, which girls don't seem to use as much.

    This is not true, a lot of women are online what seems to be 24/7 online i think... Women posters on forums are HUGE... Sites like purseblog.com, thefashionspot etc are all HUGE forums full of women posters...

    I never said I was a female. I never said I was a male either. It's no one's business what gender I am... I could be either.

    Im guessing shemale? heh :D

    Guys are usually more into technology. You gotta like something to spend most of your time doing it right?
    I think its because females arent as geeky/active on the internet we all just assume there's more males.

    Women post on forums all the time, a lot of women have beauty blogs now too and will update every with pics their FOTD (which stands for face of the day) and list which products they used etc... And some have developed HUGE followings on Youtube and some of the blogs became HUGE and are monetized now through Adsense and various other forms. For example Temptalia and PurseBuzz are pretty big in terms of traffic.

    There are probably just as many girls pretending to be guys, as guys pretending to be girls (e.g. ewhoring).;)

    LOL you just gave me a funny thought.....
    I am really good a being a ewhore, my husband said why don't you talk to me the way you write.....:yield:

    Edit: I think you are a female, or a weird boy for having the word freckle in your screen name, kinda gay if your a guy, but ok if you are a girl.

    Also, I could be a gay guy or a shemale... or perhaps a hermaphrodite... The possibilities are endless...

    Are you kidding me? No one can tell the gender of a person through their writings (if they are writing in a "professional" business style) or through their landing page or SEO campains. The surfer has no way of knowing if the creator of the page they are on is male or female, straight or gay. I completely disagree with your assessment. I can write in any style. I can write very professional when I chose. I can write from a male point of view. I can write from a female point of view. You can explore anything in every way through the written word.

    A female wouldn't need to state her gender in any on-line endeavors at all. Like if someone is doing adword campaigs, wtf does someone's gender have to do with anything? How is it relevant? How would you know if the person buying is male or female? How would it affect sales? Come on...

    Anyone of any gender can post up vides on youtube and make sales or spam craigslist etc... wtf does gender have to do with that?

    It's easier for a girl to ewhore. Get all the guys to come your website and just do a 5 min. free show per day, then start charging those horny fukers a dollar a minute each. Wow would be great cash.

    Ones a month have a lucky-draw and invite someone over to join you on cam LOL. Ah if only I was a girl :D

    lol i wonder where you got those statistics from. its not necessarily male dominated theres alot of females that do this to. like stay at home moms for example, theres lots of those that are in to this for some extra income. but for example in the ewhore business, men know exactly what they want to hear from a slutty girl that wants to expose herself on cam, so we use that as a weopon towards these horny dudes wanting to see some action. so i could see alot of men doing that. from my experience it works pretty good tbh. but anyways i dont think you should say the IM world is dominated by males because its very possible its the other way around. i could always be wrong though:p anyways just my opinion.
