        What is your definition of Internet Marketing then? Maybe a certain category/niche within IM is what you are looking for.

        Of course he is. If he's not an Internet Marketer, meaning he has a business on the Internet and markets it on the Internet, what is he?

        Not all Internet Marketers are small fry affiliate marketers or CPA marketers. Some have huge Internet businesses and DO make millions and billions.

          You must be new to all this. There are plenty of business people who use the internet as a medium for marketing that are millionaires.

          Start reading magazines like Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Forbes, and you'll see no shortage of new millionaires coming out to share their stories.

          The term "internet marketing" is a general, generic term, however, for some people it means anyone who marketers via the internet to other marketers who are looking to make money (the MMO niche).

          Of course, we veterans know better.

          The founders of Google, Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, Zappos, eBay, Zazzle, Apple, etc. are all internet marketers in the truest sense of the word, many of them have helped shape and mold it.

          There are new millionaires being made every single day online and any of you can become one, if you have the focus, the ability emulate successful people, and get rid of any negative thinking and replace it with action-minded, reality thinking!

    Online advertising, also called Internet advertising, uses the Internet to deliver promotional marketing messages to consumers. It includes email marketing, search engine marketing, social media marketing, many types of display advertising, and mobile advertising.

    According to Wikipedia, Larry Page is in fact a Internet Marketer.

    Of course there are. Maybe there aren't billionaire blog owners, but that's not the only way to make money online, now is it? Take Amazon and Ebay for example. Won't you consider them internet marketers? They most certainly are billionaires.

    I guess you need to have your own product or service to go really big. Being an affiliate will only take you so far.

      It has more to do with creating the right business at the right time. Creating your own product, while a great idea, will only get you so far. You have to leverage the time of others with a great idea at the right time. It also takes a lot of luck believe it or not.

    what's difference between internet marketers and internet entrepreneurs?
    It really doesn't matter who they are, the have proven themselves.
    it really matters is why you don't even have hundreds but need a billionaire to motivate.

    I think the OP just wanted to know if it is possible, or if someone has already accomplished accumulating $1 Billion+, using "Traditional Internet Marketing methods", such as:
    Affiliate Marketing / CPA Marketing, Blogging, Article Writing, etc...

    Probably curious about if he/she is able to reach anywhere close to Billions or Hundreds of Millions, sitting at home, working from a computer.

    In my opinion, it is Extremely Hard to accomplish; it's very unlikely that someone can achieve that (at this present time).

    "Internet Entrepreneurs", like the owners of Google, Facebook, Amazon, etc... have very solid business structures in place, with Hundreds or Thousands of employees, offices across the world, etc...

    At some point, they get Millions of dollars from Investors, which inflates the value of their companies, and personal Net Worth.

    They provide a "necessary" service that reaches the masses; Hundreds of Millions or Billions of users per day.

    Generating $1B+ online is not really achievable by remaining a Stay-at-Home Affiliate/Marketer.

    I do not think there is a billionaire internet marketer that exist today
    unless you are using pesos or yen as the currency LOL
    However i heard Dan Kennedy is a Billionaire, but not sure he got all his money
    from Internet Marketing. Kevin Trudeau is also a billionaire but he didn't make all
    his money online.

        If marketing over the internet is the core activity of your business, you are an internet marketer. Examples include running PPC campaigns for affiliate/CPA offers or selling online marketing services for clients.

        If you sell your own ebooks (as many people around here do) it's a stretch to call yourself an internet marketer just because you handle your own marketing. If a construction company handled their own online marketing, should the owner introduce himself as an internet marketer or the owner of a construction company? If you sell ebooks you are in publishing, not internet marketing.

        It's a similar story for other things that have been wrongly grouped under internet marketing.

    There are no billionaire IMers.

    Lets put this into perspective... to reach $1 Billion you would have to net roughly $275,000 per day, every day, for ten years.

    And that's net. Since most IM is affiliate driven, with a 50% split being the norm, that means any individual marketer or product creator would have to gross $550K per day in sales every day for ten years to become a billionaire.

    The #1 guy I know has done what, $40 million in the last decade? That's not even 10% of the way toward being a billionaire.
