'You can make six figures' - we test internet marketing claims - Telegraph
To me - this is so ridiculous. Even before I created my own info-products, my husband and I were supporting our family purely from our internet income. You don't support 7 kids out of thin air...
And I have so many friends and students who are doing the same thing.
But I wonder if newbies read this kind of thing and give up hope.
So as a counter-measure, here are some of the ways people I PERSONALLY know make money online:
Creating and selling your own info-products (including outside the IM niche)
Writing for others
Freelancing and client work
Selling physical products on Amazon
Selling software (you outsource the programming and sell it as a product)
Creating viral video sites
I'm sure I missed some. But any newbie should get the point :-)
