My question is this. Do people ACTUALLY make money selling products that don't have anything to do with internet marketing? This is a serious question, because it seems that everyone I come across who appears to be successful in this industry is either selling products, writing books, or running websites that have to do with internet marketing. Is there a way to make money using internet marketing that does not consist of selling things to other people who are trying to learn internet marketing?? I have a fear that this is just the way it is, which means it's kind of a pyramid scheme. But maybe I'm wrong.
Are any of you making a living off internet marketing and NOT selling any products or services that have to do with internet marketing???
Some reassuring words at this point would be VERY much appreciated.
PS: I have a friend who runs a HUGE art blog (unique visitors per month in the millions) and makes a very good living off his site simply from advertising, so I know it's possible, but he never learnt any internet marketing, and has never been in the internet marketing "scene".
So I guess if I was to rephrase my question slightly it would be, is anyone in the "Internet Marketing Scene" making a living doing something other than selling products and services to other people in the "Internet Marketing Scene??"
Thanks guys, oh, and nice to meet y'all.
