    Many of us get into internet marketing for many reasons and some people do it as their only means of income (their work) and some do it as a hobby or just for extra income.

    Personally I do it as my main source of income although I do other work but that's online also.

    What about you fellow members, is internet marketing your work or hobby or extra source of income?

    Right now internet marketing is just for extra money that I hope that can one day become my full time work. I am pretty new to internet marketing so I still have many things to learn but I am always eager to learn and try out new marketing methods to improve my efforts. :D

    Being eager to learn and improve is something that can really help you in the internet marketing field. Some people don't want to learn and try new marketing techniques and methods so they are limiting themselves.

    Keep learning and growing you experience and knowledge and I am sure that you will reach your goal.

    Internet marketing is necessary, in order to increase product sales and website traffic. It is considered compulsory for marketers. Marketers use it to spread the awareness of a brand to the customers. Internet marketing is one of the most effective methods for marketing. It allow companies to provide 24 hours service to the consumers.

    Internet marketing is kind of my hobby right now because I don't make enough income from it to be considered a regular job.

    I sometimes put in many hours a day doing it but I will only consider it my job when my earnings are better.

    Internet marketing is kind of a hobby for now I guess. I got started in it because I wanted to save up some money to start my own business. If the income ever becomes good enough to live well of off then I might consider doing it as my main source of work and income.

    My internet marketing is just my side job for now while I am finishing my studies at the university. After I graduate then I will maybe do it as a side job still until I make a good income from it then I might do it as my main job.

    Internet marketing is part of my work and not my full time job. I do many different things, all of which are online related, and internet marketing is a part of that.

    I would like to have more time to dedicate to my internet marketing but right now I can't and I have other things that I deal with. maybe one day it will be my full-time work but until it make a full-time income that I am happy with it will not be the only thing that I do.

    Time seems to be something that all of us internet marketers both full-time and part-time are always short on. I guess in these days and times we just need to find time that is just not making it easy on us to find.

    Internet marketing is just my side work right now but I am hoping to make it my regular work this year. I do not like having other people be in control of my own future so I am wanting to be a full time internet marketer and control my own future.

    Having control of your own future and earnings potential are a couple of the big reasons that people get into internet marketing.

    Most other "regular" type jobs have set salaries or wages that are hard to grow beyond if you are even to at all.

    With internet marketing you are in charge and control of how much money you can potentially make.

    You are right but some people will get lazy and make less money when they do internet marketing as a job. You must treat it like a job in order to make a nice living from it.

    Well it's very easy to get distracted when you are not working a regular job with regular hours. I know that I am sometime guilty of not sticking to my schedule.

    Anything that you are making a living from should be treated like work and you need to stay focused if you want to make the best earnings.

    I look at my internet marketing like it's a part-time job and not a hobby because I take it seriously. Once I make good enough money from it then I might make it a full-time job.

    Do you like the fact that internet marketing is both a hobby and source of income or are you just doing it to help you make money with your website?

    Initially I just wanted to make money with internet marketing, but after a while I learned a lot of knowledge by myself, and gradually became interested in it.

    That's how a lot of us get started in internet marketing. You start doing it to make money for one reason or another and then start to get interested in it more and more.

    Internet marketing can become very addicting for a lot of people and it's an addiction that can make us money which is always nice. :)
