Will more people come online to look for income when they got laid off?

Hi all, this question suddenly crossed my mind, with the current economy situation, do you think more people will take up Internet Marketing or seeking ways to earn an income on the Internet?

    I guess not everyone will come. Because not everyone is well known of IM. Peoples who already searching for online money making solution during their day jobs will come as full timers.

    it's really depends on peoples thinking about alternatives.

    Thats true, as that is what I first thought when I got envolved. But the longer you look around and do a little digging, people will learn that it's not so much of a scam but more if they can learn how to do it.

    It will but probably not as much as people think. There is also offline direct marketing and MLM as well. Besides, certain industries that are almost entirely commision based such as property, insurance, and autos will gladly take on new employees even though they are in steep decline.

    I have been offering help to set up an IM business to a german relative of mine who had been unemployed for years. He is just simply not interested however attractive I make it out to him.

      I think a lot of people will try, but most of them don't have the willpower to keep going.

      As much as I hate to say it, the Internet is not a "make lots of money really fast" kind of place, it's just like any other business that must be built from the ground up, unless you get lucky, and most of the people being laid off would want money coming in ASAP which generally means getting a job.

    I actually think there will be quite few new bodies in IM.

    Particularly if the recession lasts 2 years+. Many people will try many different things to try and get an income going.

    I know of a number of former realtors who are trying IM in one way or another. Unfortunately, both I know are fixated on quick bucks so they're falling for a lot of scams, imo.

    Yes, and 90% of them it get involved with mlm and the other recruiting people models and not make a dime until they move on to real & proven online business models.

    A few will move on but most will not.

      A friend of mine, who had his own comic shop for 20 years and also sold
      comics and cards at Ebay, just closed up his shop and actually took down his
      Ebay store as well and has gone on to become a janitor.

      So some people go in the opposite direction and get away from the

      I think you're going to have a little of both. Some folks would never even
      think of turning to the Internet for money.
