By Internet marketers -- I mean people who promote "make money online" products (PLR products, trafffic generation, listbuilding, SEO products, etc).
One come to mind is Eben Pagan -- he made millions in the dating niche (Double Your Dating) as David Dangelo before he began his current content-marketing/info-product coaching program.
I respect "gurus" or any Internet marketers if they made a lot money in non-IM niches first (health, sports, relationship, self-help, gaming, etc) before promoting all these "make money online" products to others.
It seems like many newbies these days want to establish themselves as an Internet marketer by selling others on how to make money (list building, blogging, seo, adsense, product launches, etc) when they first starting out (even if they haven't made a dime!).
But wouldn't you gain more credibility making money from non-IM niches first...and then start promoting Internet/Affiliate marketing products to others next?
Anyways, which gurus come to mind?
