Default What are the PROS and CONS of becoming a "Full Time Internet Marketer"?

As in any business with benefits and ricks, I think “Full Time Internet Marketing” comes with PROS and CONS.

What are these PROS and CONS? How can one take advantage of the PROS and how can one avoid the CONS?

Please in your reply, write PROS first and CONS second. I think this tread will be useful for us starting in the business.

Thanks in advance for your helpful replies.

Pros:
  • Ability to work from home or anywhere
  • You can make as much or as little income as you want
  • No boss to answer to, no traffic to sit in, no suffering under workplace rules
  • You learn valuable lifelong skills such as copywriting, helping others, finance, etc.
  • More time to yourself and to spend with your family and friends
  • Can completely make your business autopilot

Cons:
  • Insanely steep learning curve
  • Mistakes can cost you money
  • The amount of money you get is more or less equivalent to the effort you put in. Very difficult to put in time if you work a full time job
  • The complete lack of time you have when your first start
  • Sporadic income. Some days you'll get a lot of money, some days you won't get anything due to the alignment of the universe
  • Can easily blow tons of money and get no results
  • Easy to get discouraged
  • Dealing with people who blame you for their lack of success

Pros:
  • Work when you want, however you want
  • No Boss
  • Your income depends on YOU
  • Allows you to be creative
  • Spend more time doing the things you enjoy
  • Get to associate with great people in your field
  • Gives you control over your destiny
  • Allows you to learn new things and expand your knowledge
  • Keeps your brain ticking

Cons:
  • IM can often isolate people from socializing and interaction from the outside world. (Easily avoidable though nonetheless)
  • There can be a few variables that may threaten your online income in a blink of an eye (website downtime, servers crash, lists being lost, google slapping you with a penguin, traffic sources diminish, etc.) But like the above, this can be easily avoidable providing people backup everything regularly and avoid putting all their eggs in one basket.
  • Can be discouraging at times
  • You are accountable for your finances, tax, customers, everything. (Not always a pain )

All that is listed pretty much cover it. Here's a couple more.

Pros
  • can take time off when you need and be flexible to do other things.
  • tax benefits for a home business

Cons
  • can get lonely
  • sometimes it's hard to stay motivated
  • need to have a distinction between when you're "at home" and "at work" otherwise you'll always feel at work.

Pros:
Lots of opportunities and income streams
Fully utilize your skills wihtout any pressure or resource restrictions
Inexpensive and easy to start
Low investment involved so give you more confidence even in case of loss
You take more risks than usual

Cons
Dependency on many online services like google,CB, paypal (they can blow you away anytime)
No working hours
Less social life/ physical training


As a whole, Full Time IM is a great charm, cons can be overcomed easily with the passage of time and steady income.

Pros:

- You don't have to immediately deal with the public, you work from home without directly taking with your customers and answering all their questions like you do when you have an offline business. Even when you exchange email messages you are not as exposed as when someone is next to you.

- You have numerous alternatives that help you work very fast.

Cons:

- You need a diet. You don't burn calories going to your job and doing things that make you lose some weight.

- You become somehow antisocial.

Cons, you cant sit on your ass working for someone else, pretending to be busy and still getting paid.

Pros, the ability to simultaneously "work", stuff your face hamburgers and get baked all day.

Pro: You can / should start part-time while you are still employed... build your business after work and establish a level of income BEFORE you quite or get fired.
Pro: There are lots of potential mentors our there who can coach you and help you succeed faster.

Con: You will likely try to do everything yourself and burn through lots of money and time trying to learn. Better to outsource what you don't know how to do and stick to doing what you're good at.

Pros

- Make money from home
- Making money while travelling.
- Freedom of time

Cons

- It can be a lonely business
- Takes some time before starting to see results
- Costly to make mistakes

But nonetheless, it is still worth it to start your own internet business as you have more control of your finances and time.

Well, I could sit here and talk all day about the PROS to being an Internet Marketer, but can't really think of many CONS...

PROS

1. work from home
2. be your own boss
3. make your own hours
4. make as much or as little money as you want
5. i work about 3 hours a day
6. financial freedom
7. buy whatever I want (most of the time)
8. travel
9. spend time with family
10. have more time to myself and being able to relax instead of break my back

CONS

1. easily get distracted


I can not think of many CONS at the moment although I am sure there is more than that, but I can say that I love working from home and making more money working 3 hours a day from my computer than I did working 10 hours a day at a full time job.

I don't have any pros and cons here, but I do have some advice to give though.

For starters, if you are wanting to get into online marketing, make sure that you learn from honest and ethical entrepreneurs. Don't learn from the meriod of scam artists out there who are only interested in bilking you out of every single dime that you own.

Also don't be an opportunity hopper hopping from one opportunity to another just because the one that you are currently in isn't making you wealthy right away. Give the opportunity sime to work and make sure that you learn all you can about it so that you can make it work to the best of y our ability.

Sell your own products and services. This is where you will be making the most of your money from. You can also do affiliate marketing too, but first sell your own stuff.

Never ever give up, that's the name of the game here. If you really want to be successful at this game, then you need to play the game right so you do succeed at it. Always be honest and ethical in all that you do with your online business and never scam people or bilk people out of their money in the name of striking it rich.

Try telling somebody who ISN'T a full time Internet Marketer that there are CONS to being a full time Internet Marketer and they will laugh in your face.

There are NO cons to being a full time Internet Marketer. That's how it feels to somebody from the outside looking in.

Also, I've never bought that whole "ooh the amount of money you make is dictated by how much effort you put in". That's the biggest BS I've ever heard. Sure, you have to work hard in life to get anything good but just because somebody sits at a laptop for 14 hours a day doesn't mean they're going to make money.

Internet marketing is probably the cheapest mode of marketing available, here you not just market your product but you can interact with your customers as well.

The only time when you should go full time in IM is when you can make a steady stream of income that is consistant. In other words you have to be able to pull a rabbit out of a hat at will.

Thus if you run a campaign one week and make 2k in one week, you might not make a dime the next following week.

PROS- A lot of Time for yourself.
CONS- Can get frustrating at times.

But the whole idea is to not give up. Don't expect success in a Day. Just do Good work. Believe in Karma. And you will be rewarded.

Ditto all the PRO's mentioned above.

It's the FREEDOM, being able to do what you love, travel, etc... I've travelled to Southeast Asia for months, South America for months, and around North America. Wouldn't have been able to do that with a "job".

The CON for me has been the difficulty of staying motivated and accountable. You don't have a boss or you don't really HAVE to work. You can wake up whenever you want and you can easily just sit around and do nothing on some days. I've been able to offset it for the most part by having accountability partners and getting out of the house to work (coffee shops).

The PRO is that, you wake when YOU want, no 9-5 or 5-9. You can do whatever you like.

But the biggest CON is that, if somebody asks you what you are doing... they won't get it .

If you are looking to go Full Time, do it

Default Re: What are the PROS and CONS of becoming a "Full Time Internet Marketer"?

PROS: The freedom it affords, nobody to answer to, ability to earn far more than in a job.

CONS: The exact opposite of everything above... Freedom: I can sometimes abuse the freedom and not put in the hours, I need to work on this balance more. Nobody to answer to: Again, I sometimes forget I have to answer to myself and the bills still need to be paid. Ability to earn more: Also the ability to earn nothing if you don't put the work in.

I've been self employed doing this full time for over 5 years now and I wouldn't change it for the world, but it's definitely not all rainbows and pay days.

There is certainly more pros than cons.
PROS:
- be your own boss; work your own hours
- travel the world, and live any where you want
- retire early and enjoy life
CONS:
- you need to go out more and meet people otherwise you will die of isolation.

PROS

  • You can work what hours you want - If you have something else to do, or you want to walk your kids to school you can.
  • The possibilities are endless! - There's so much to explore in the IM world, I feel like we always have something new to explore.
  • Large customer base - Millions of people have access to the internet and your site/product as long as you are good at marketing then you can work with so many people.
  • You are your own boss - You don't have to answer to anyone!
  • You can work from anywhere in the world - As long as you have your laptop and internet connection!


CONS


  • If you work alone it can get lonely.

I guess the biggest con is which most of the people will agree is becoming anti social, lonely but not a big deal as you can completely eliminate it.

I think, like most successful people, you shouldn't worry too much about the pros and cons. What you should look at are the more fundamental things. Do you like the idea of marketing online, do you find marketing to be a passionate endeavor, do you think you can do a damn good job at it or put the hours to make a damn good marketer.

Once the answers are yes, then you burn your ships and move forward. There is no ifs/ands/buts or pros and cons about it. You want it, just do it and you'll get it.

So, I encourage you to ask those fundamental questions.

I think most of the pros have been covered.

I'll just mention one con that a lot of people don't think about in advance: affordable health insurance. If you're young and healthy it's usually not a problem but once you have a problem (I'm diabetic) it can become tricky to get private coverage of any kind. (I'm talking about those who live in the U.S.)

- You need a diet. You don't burn calories going to your job and doing things that make you lose some weight.

- You become somehow antisocial.








Being Antisocial can ruin ones life in a way that when you spend more time at home working from home you become lonely and it may cause depression and axienty to some extent and in my point this is the worse con of being a full time internet marketer.

I pity those guys who have boring / Socially deprived / loneliness as cons.

The point in internet marketing is to make money in your own way. That's why every step marketing in online is a challenge and that should keep you inspired and be filled with determination that should not bore you. If your getting bored in internet marketing online then you are really not suitable in this profession.

Socially deprived why would you get socially deprived in this profession first and foremost you are communicating with people through phone / video / email / webinars and such. you are not socially deprived from it. Pretty sure most marketers here know other marketers in real life and have meet up and discussed business and marketing ideals in real and how the heck would you call it socially deprived.


Loneliness. Yes marketing at start is very lonesome because first you don't know anyone. You don't trust anyone and you don't believe anyone.
The point in this is exploring the market finding people / socializing people and make money while doing so that's why there is a quote which is building up a trust with your clients / your people. If your here just to make friends why not just go with facebook and twitter or those social networking sites there are many people there that are looking for virtual buddies.

Pros:

Leverage: You can create an income source that could last for years if done right. It could also increase after some time without your involvement.

That is contrary to working an hourly rate/salary where you are exchanging time for money.


Cons:

Nothing is certain just like being employed. It takes work and consistency to get this working. If you want money tomorrow this won't be for you. If you want to learn skills that will always put money into your bank account, this will be exactly what you want.
