    And how do you know that, good sir?

    Obviously you seem to have a good connection with IRS that we didn't know off :-)


    stn

    p/s- There is a lot of marketers who are making more than $10mill.. This people are usually very busy, and seldom have the time to come down and say "Yup, thats me" to a random post in a forum about their wealth.

    But, you never know- someone can surprise us here today .

    Yeah, because anyone who doesn't make $10 million a year is just lazy.

    I can only speak for myself, but during my IM time i have become very lazy when it comes to real "working".

    Nowadays i try to outsource as much as possible but sometimes when i have to do it myself im way slower than in my early beginnings.

    And because YOU "have not seen any IM earning over $10million a year by just selling on the internet"... how does make all the IM "lazy people"?

    You should ask back the tuition fee from your logic classes

    P.S. I am lazy but that has nothing to do with IM - I was born like that :p

        I was being sarcastic :rolleyes:

        You cannot make broad assumptions about one group.

        1. It's rude.
        2. It's incorrect.
        3. I think that about covers it.

        Obviously, you missed the "sarcasm" comment on that post!

        It was meant to demonstrate for you that as your assumption (=all IMers are lazy) is false, the stereotype that all Nigerians are scammers, is false, too.

        Oh, and by the way, we don't have to go there: there is an online maffia known as the "Nigerian scam" that comes to our Inbox in the form of spam.

        My advice: educate yourself before starting to post about IM. :rolleyes:

    IM is a new business model and being able to bank $10m a year is not developed in few years. You must have a busness that has been worked out for decades. By the time we do IM for three decades, you are going to have folks making way over that amount.... True or false ?

      Hogwash. Marketing online is no different than marketing anywhere else. Lead generation, sales, upsells, remarketing... it's all the same, the medium is just different.

      Oh and there are plenty of IM businesses that are doing $10m+ per year, PLENTY.

            Presumably "making" means gross revenue? If the entity sells through affiliates, they may end up netting 10-35% of the gross, after affiliate fees, advertisement, overhead, etc. Still not a bad ROI!

      I bet you worked hard (and smart) at the beginning of your IM career to "deserve" / gain this level of accomplishment. So it still proved that you are not lazy. You are just smart enough to:
      1. Choose the "right" venue within IM
      2. Take action
      3. Presevere until it works

    Many ecommerce sites say hi.

    Internet marketing is simply marketing over the internet.

    Kind of like Infomercial Marketing. It's just marketing done through informercials.

    Anyone making $10 million a year in a business is either A) Working their own ass off, or B) have a team of people working hard for them.

    Usually its the latter, because if your company is doing those kind of numbers you'd need help.

      .


      Correct I know 2 millionaires that frequent this forum. They are the hardest workers i know. WHY? because they love their job. And why shouldnt they.

      It is written that if you do what you love, and get paid for it, you will never actually have to work a day in your life.

      Are they lazy? NO...but they are rebels...meaning they do things differently, and do not believe in working for a boss, and the whole 9 to 5 thing. I have had a fat ugly obese boss, and it was discusting. She was horrid...and that put me off working for a boss forever.

      Work for self = freedom, and no pressure.

        I agree and disagree here. Working for oneself does mean a level of freedom that those working a 9 to 5 don't have.

        However, to say (generally) that there is no pressure would be an understatement. If there was no pressure in owning/running your own business everyone would be doing it.

        Even if you have a whole team of people working for you, there is still that lingering pressure of finding the right people (especially those who don't steal from you) to run your business.

        Then you need to create an atmosphere that keeps the "right" people from seeking other opportunities, not to mention ensuring that you meet your Payroll ever two weeks.

        If your a sole owner working your ass off, then you have that pressure to perform, because if you don't there isn't anyone else to fall back on. This is where proper contingency planning can help you succeed when you fail--but is still a pressure from a business stand point.

        That said, I would say that many successful business owners thrive under pressure. When the rest of the world says, "You can't do that!" they say "**** that, I'm going to do it and will do it while you watch in disbelief."

        It's easy to go to a nine to five job. It may be political, and it may be disappointing, but I assure you its 100% easier than trying to build your own business to equal your nine to five paycheck.

        The pressure is on. Those that can't handle it are the ones that go out of business sooner than the rest.

    I think internet marketers are lazy in the good sense.


    Larry Wall wrote that all good programmers are lazy. And he believed this is a good thing. Why? Because lazy people don't do pointless, repetitive crap all the time. They try to come up with straightforward solutions that work. Now, obviously, he was talking about programmers and not internet marketers, but if you look at all the good product ideas you see mentioned on here daily, you'll see that the IM community definitely has a lot of "good" laziness.

    Good question. I'd say a lot of so called "IM People" are lazy or at least attracted by the lure of large sums of easy money.
    They are not prepared to actually put in the work and treat their online business like a real business.

    On the other hand, a lot of people are in IM because they know it is possible to build a life of freedom and financial security. I am one of these people and truly believe this is possible if you put in the work.

    I don't think those people in IM are lazy.....some people work their ass of day in day out. But you cannot argue that the general impression from people who are not working in IM is that people doing IM are lazy....

    We tend to work less hours, and earn more....they simply cannot understand how that works....so they assume it must be easy....

    They then attempt IM and fail.....so they call us scammers....

    So personally I'd rather be called lazy

    Whether a serious Internet marketer is lazy or not depends entirely on the individual I think, and has nothing to do with internet marketing... Infact, to be an Internet marketer you need to be a highly motivated person otherwise success won't happen.

    Me personally, I like to find ways to do things doing the least amount of work... some may call it lazy, I call it efficient.

    As mentioned above, a great many Internet marketers make millions a year...
