    as all are scams.
    How are you planning on making money if everything is a scam? And if everything is a scam, then why would you be asking people that are scammers how much they are making? I don't care what the local meth dealer makes because I don't want to make my money that way no matter how much it is.

        What is your definition of scam?

        They took your money and didn't deliver anything?
        Their book/product seemed like harder work than the sales letter promised?
        They were selling something you already knew about?
        You tried their methods for a fair period of time, exactly according to their directions, and you didn't make a dime?
        What?

        I spent $.99 buying my first domain at Godaddy (which you can still do today). My first hosting account was with Host Gator and was $4/month if I remember correctly. I also bought an autoresponder/emailing account at aWeber for $12/month with my first month free. I used a free WP theme for my home base web site. That's what it cost for me to get started.

        So yes, it took a few dollars to get my business going.

        Is that too much for you? If so, you are not cut out to be an entrepreneur.

    Money can make more of it no doubt about it but if I had no money I would not let that stop me from reaching my goals. You dust yourself off and get back in the game.

    Really the less selfish you are the more you make in my opinion. Customers first.

    "How much are internet marketers really making?"

    thats a very generic question. It depends so much on what you do exactly.

    you can sell what everyone else sells....then why would you make any money?

    best is always to think outside the box and differentiate yourself from the pack

    or sell something people really spend money on, and get a unique angle nobody has....

    then yes, there is a lot of money to be made. Like offline consulting or things like travel,
    with average transaction of 2k per client.

    #1 You have a product.

    #2 You advertise said product.

    #3 You optimize your process - ads, sales funnel, follow-up, etc.

    #4 Repeat.

    I would love to see some data about what % of internet marketers actually make money. Unfortunately, this type of data doesn't seem to be available.

    If anyone has any idea how to collect such data, please let me know.

    For example, I would like to find out what % makes over $100K and what % makes like under $1K per year.

    But, I can't figure out a way to put my hands on this kind of data, so I will never know. Too bad!

      I think any data you would get would be purely anecdotal. The problem with most IM wannabes is that they buy into the get-rich-quick mentality, just like late night infomercials.

      You can get rich quicker online than offline, purely due to the market size. But doing it without effort or investment? Not !$!@ likely.

        Not sure if you picked up the sarcasm in my post but okay, of course it's not that easy but again if you know your audience and what they want, why not? All you need is a sales funnel that converts, it's not some big secret method.

    I'm not saying this to be negative, but I'm going to point out something that's the root cause for your bad experience with internet marketing.

    Your signature is quite telling as you've been here for 5 years...

    How can you NOT know of any legitimate business models?

    I don't think that's the actual problem, though.

    You likely do know of a few legit options but you still haven't come to terms with making a business decision, and committing to it.

    But if you're so convinced almost everything is a scam, why are you still asking questions on a forum like this?

    Regards,
    Daniel

    MOST of making money online is mental. If you believe most are scams then you will find them. if you believe there are still good ones out there, then you will find them. Go to youtube and find people who have hunderds of videos like Gary V, and others, the Craigslist Hunter, Freelance Hustle and more. those people teach you methods in their videos.

    And while i dont have the money to get into most of the programs he teaches, Jim Cockrum is an excellent teacher. his silent sales machine shows you how to start with no money.

    You can create a free report, give it away, sell it, turn it into plr, contact people through facebook groups, twitter, youtube, pinterest, etc..all for free. It does not take money to make money. it does take time though. No program that promises you make x by next week will work. i can show you how to make X but no time frame and it is up to you, your work ethic etc... is a good program, just would not excite people so it would not sell. people want instant gratification

    Not really no! All your doing is using this tool of the Internet to reach an audience around supply and demand.

    There are free tools out there and even traffic can be free. Just instead of your money sending you the traffic you need to spend the time to send the traffic.

    Wouldn't a better question be:

    "How much are you spending"?

    Yes, people make money working online. No, they can't tell you how to do it in a forum post. Yes, there are many scams. No, you don't have to fall for all of them.

    If you believe you can get something for nothing - if you think you can earn six figures quickly with little effort - if you believe you can earn thousands without any real effort on your part - if you believe in "secrets" and all that bosh...you will end up looking for a job.

    Its right that money makes money, but you can get more money without investment. Yes! and its only possible if a person is completely dedicated to work online for getting money. In short time if you want to earn money then initially you have to do a little investment otherwise the second option is better to choose, which works without investment of money but here the time you are giving is just equal to money.

    This Internet used to be compared to the wild, wild west of the 19th century. A lot of snake oil salesmen and gangs of desperados preying on wagon trains full of greenhorns looking for the promised land.

    I suppose some of that impression still lingers, or it certainly contributes to the generalizations about internet marketing. You still see many ads that are over the top in my opinion, but my opinion isn't particularly relevant to this discussion.

    Let's say you have no money, no job, very few marketable skills and were convicted of a petty crime or once filed for bankruptcy. What better place than the internet to get yourself back on track? No background check, no resume and no problem at all if you show up for work at 1 in the afternoon.

    Others do not read the ads carefully and believe that when someone earns thousands of dollars in affiliate money, it can be accomplished overnight. Many more are lured in by the promise that little effort is required and you'll never have to spend another dime to accomplish your goals.

    The thing is that, despite some of the hype, many programs are excellent and deliver exactly what they promise. Unfortunately, the early reputation of the internet as a scamosphere still lingers. Don't forget how Google made much of their early fortune. It was because back in the day many people thought that the only businesses that could thrive on the internet were porno and gambling.

    I have some advice about this and, fortunatley or unfortunately, I speak from experience. Read the ads and enticements carefully. Ask a lot of questions. Look for legitimate reviews. Run it by us folks here on the Warriors Forum. Do some searching on Google or Bing. If your questions aren't responded to, stay away. If the answers are vague, you should probably stay away.

    There are professional copywriters who have the ability to make your mouth water about certain programs. Just be careful and use common sense.

    If you are looking to get rich quick, you'll probably find a program that will convince you that it's possible and, if you are an established marketer with an extensive list, it certainly can happen in a relatively short period of time. But if you're new to internet marketing in general or have don't have a fortune to spend on advertising, expect your growth to take a while longer. It doesn't mean you can't be successful. It just means that you going to have to learn the ropes and work for your success. If you are prepared to do that and learn from your mistakes, then nothing can hold you back from achieving your goals.

    Hey,


    The thing is most people think making money online is a scam because they are bombarded with fake claims, do 20 surveys a day and then you will be rich!


    There is a lot of money to be made online but yes your right you need money to make money, but most people do the research and find this out and then quit and then claim "OH SCAM".


    If you want to make money from:


    Blogging....you need hosting, web design etc etc MONEY


    Affiliate marketing.....you need landing page software, advertising budget....MONEY

    You are absolutely right my friend! It does take money to make money. See there are many ways to make money on the internet and not all are free, they all take up much time and as we all know time is money. Also many IM's are making thousands to millions on the internet. So yes you can absolutely live off your salary from internet marketing. It depends on your strategy and while it does take a little bit to get started its well worth it in the long run. No millionaire has got to that position for free! Just keep learning and you will find your path to success.

    It does not take money to make money..

    We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.

    Making money online is easy if you know the steps you need to take the reason why most people don't make money online is they get information overload from all the gurus and don't take action because they are so confused.

    Getting back to your question there are still lots of ways to make money online with out paid traffic.

      Are you sure? Have you seen this guy's books, accounting and tax return? BTW, is it supposed to be $1M income or $1M profit.

      There are companies who make $1M and spend $2M.

      I would say over 90% of the people who get involved in IM will never make a living from it.

      Then again, it depends on what we mean by IM. Internet Marketing could be many things. In a way, almost everyone is doing some sort of internet marketing. Everyone is on the internet and one way or an other, they are marketing something.

      Of course, it's not everyone, it's only 3.17 Billion people on the internet today. In any case, does any one have any idea how many of them actually marketing something like a product, service, ideology, belief system, political views or just simply promoting their kid's little league team, or whatever?

      I was making a living from internet marketing for many years before I realized what I was doing was supposed to be called "Internet Marketing". I had no idea.

    They do call it the Internet Marketing Business for a reason, any Business will cost some money to get involved with. Having said that, the cost of any internet business is lower than a store front business. What are the costs? A website and hosting, auto responder and perhaps some promotion. Well worth it for me.
