I suspect after reading the headline of this article one of the first things that crossed your mind is how can I possibly distinguish the difference between an author, blogger and Internet marketer?
Nowadays most published authors have blogs, and bloggers use Internet marketing techniques and write books too. Internet marketers also publish books and use blogs, so how can we determine the difference?
In this case rather than look at the person, who can easily encompass all three of the personas we are talking about, let’s look instead at the different mediums themselves and how effective they are as money making techniques.
In other words, can you make more money publishing a book, or writing a blog or selling things online as an Internet marketer?
Why Ask This Question?
I was thinking today while reading an article – a good article – on a blog how the ideas within the content where also present in two other mediums – inside a popular print book and a course I studied, which was a recording of a live event by an Internet marketer.
The blog article was given away for free. The print book probably costs about $10 now since it’s not new, while the live event cost $10,000 to attend and the recordings I studied were at least $2,000.
The blogger in this situation was basically summarizing and filtering some information he read in the book. The author is an expert on the subject who had no doubt spent years accumulating the knowledge and experience to produce the title. The Internet marketer who ran the event had read the book too, and included the most important points, again filtered for his audience, in the live event.
Three different people, all using the same information and getting paid vastly different amounts for it. This prompted me to wonder, which person would I rather be – the blogger, the author or the Internet marketer?
Let’s Focus On The Money
To make this discussion as clear as possible I want to eliminate all the other considerations as to why you undertake any of these activities.
Many people write a book just for the sake of being published or expressing themselves. Most bloggers don’t write their blog to profit from it, instead they use the medium as a form of creative expression or as a place to vent. Internet marketing is perhaps the only activity you can say is purely about profit, though if we looked at marketing as a field of study other considerations such as “influence” or “branding” might come into the discussion that don’t directly equate to dollar signs.
For the sake of this article we’re discarding other factors. I want to focus solely on the money. It’s all about how you can use these mediums to make cash – and quickly.
All the intrinsic considerations are of importance too whenever you consider these activities, but it’s pretty clear whether you can profit from what you are doing, as well as how quickly you can make money and how much can be generated, are right at the top of the list when it comes to deciding what you do with your content.
How To Leverage Your Content For Cash
Many moons ago I wrote an article that explained how most bloggers are leaving copious amounts of money on the table because of how poorly they translate their content production efforts into cash using Internet marketing techniques like email marketing. You can read the article here –
Why Don’t Bloggers Understand Email Marketing?
This situation hasn’t changed much since I wrote that article. I’d like to think that I’m partly responsible, along with many of my very successful and wealthy blogging peers (the exceptions – a minority for sure), for opening the eyes of bloggers to the potential their blog gives them, if they only learn how to do things like build email lists and sell their own information products.
Lots of bloggers give away amazing ideas on their blogs, and this is a good thing – moving the freeline is important if you want dominate your market – but understand this is only the first step.
The Same Content, Presented In Three Different Ways
Let’s break down the scenarios…
1. The Author
Print books usually contain lots of words. Lots and lots of words. As a result, unless you are leveraging some clever outsourcing strategies, sitting down and writing a book yourself is not something you get done in a week or three or even a month. We’re talking three months to even multiple years to finish writing a book, so if you are going to profit, it won’t be quickly.
Chances are once you publish your book you’re not going to make much money, if any at all. Except for best sellers, which make up a teeny tiny percentage of overall books published each year, most authors are not retiring on book sales.
As a result the typical strategy for an author is to leverage the credibility and exposure that a book brings you. Once you become published you get to wear a special badge that gives you instant street cred. Unfortunately unless you work out a back-end business model behind your book, you’re not making money as a published author.
Of the three mediums we are discussing, books generally speaking have the best information in them. Due to the length and the amount of research put into a good book, you’re going to find the most comprehensive and high quality level of information, compared to what you might find in a blog post or in Internet marketing products like recorded seminars, or video presentations, or even ebooks, which are usually shorter than physical books.
That’s not to say books are better, sometimes less is more and in most cases you only really need a tiny bit of information from what’s in a book, so you have to go trawling the pages to find what you want. However, some of the most successful people I know are that way because they know a lot about a lot, and usually get this way by reading lots of books.
Books offer specialized information from experts who put whole lifetimes of experience into their written creations, knowing very well that a book represents in many ways, a piece of themselves.
2. The Blogger
Authority bloggers write in-depth content in article-sized chunks, which they distribute on a weekly or even daily basis. In this case we’re going to focus more on the educational, Pillar Article style content as opposed to the short news updates style blog posts. This is about teaching people how to do things, build credibility as an expert and slowly establish an audience.
Blogs can make great money, but it does take a while to get going since most bloggers choose only to monetize what they do with advertising. Since advertising tends to pay out more based on increased page impressions, unless you have a huge amount of traffic, just leveraging advertising is not enough to become financially free. Once again, you need the back-end business selling products and/or services behind the blog to start really profiting.
3. Internet Marketers
Internet marketers, the good ones, are a clever bunch when it comes to making money. They look for the best profit models and go after the key variables straight away. They know profit comes from email lists with high conversion rates, followed up with back-end product funnels. They look for 80/20 methods of making money, they leverage their time and charge lots of money for what they provide.
Internet marketers can provide quality information because they –
A) Read all those books published by authors, and…
B) Take massive action focused on maximizing profits, hence have lots of experience and case studies of the kind of success most people only dream about.
And I’m not just talking about the Internet marketers who sell Internet marketing products. I’m talking about Internet marketers who sell weight loss products, real estate products, sports products, food and nutrition products, music products, education products, and the list goes…
These people know how to get the most out of what they provide. They sell information products like ebooks, video courses, home study courses, live events, audio downloads and loads more. They charge a range of prices and target very specific markets with very specific products. If you looked at the value per word they publish and sell, this group is the richest.
So, You Should Focus On Internet Marketing Right?
I feel confident saying if you want to make money quickly, following an Internet marketing focused model is the answer.
What I mean by this, in a nutshell, is that you should focus on filling your email list full of targeted prospects as fast as you can, selling them a front end product you have someone else create for you, then sell higher priced back-end products until you get rich. Test everything along the way, focus only on conversion as your most important metric, and away you go.
This is a sound strategy, especially if you are entering a completely new market and you have no existing assets you can leverage besides some money ready to be spent on getting websites set up and to buy traffic.
That’s the simple answer, and it’s easy for me to say this when you exclude some important variables, like…
- Do you care about the market you are in?
- How long do you want to stay in the market?
- Is your personal brand important to you?
- Do you want to focus on one niche, or many?
- Do you want recognition for your work, or just money?
- Are you already established in an industry offline?
- How far do you want to take the business?
There are many other things to consider beyond this list. The reason I mention this is because the answer isn’t simple. I’m trying to make it simple because everyone new to Internet marketing wants money and they want it today.
People look for the quickest path to success because instant gratification and immediate relief from your current situation is a strong motivational driver. Unfortunately for these people, the realization will set in that there are no quick fixes, and while Internet marketing is the best profit-focused strategy, it’s really just a part of the puzzle.
The Real Answer
The real answer to this puzzle is “all of the above”.
The blogger needs to learn how to add Internet marketing to the mix so they can leverage more from what they already produce. It’s okay to sell some of your content and not give everything away for free. It’s smart to focus on more than just advertising as a monetization method and you should build an email list. Think about building a business and not just writing a blog as a job.
Internet marketers need to be business builders too, and using credibility enhancing tools like a book and a blog gives you significant points of leverage to position yourself ahead of the competition, sell more product and charge more for what you do.
Although Internet marketers have the best tools and science for making money, often they lack long term planning and focus too much on a quick buck and not on relationships with their audience and customers. The result from this is burn-out and only short term gain, as competition, natural market fluctuations and customer backlash erode your profit because you don’t have a solid platform under your business, which can sustain you long term.
Authors need to plan to make money beyond just book sales. Using a blog as a companion platform to a book is a great strategy to enhance your front-end marketing efforts and further establish your brand. Leveraging Internet marketing completes the puzzle, allowing you to profit extensively from your efforts publishing a book and maintaining a blog.
All of this takes time to develop and everyone begins from a different space. Your circumstances dictate where you start.
Having a book and a popular blog and a back-end money making machine based on sound Internet marketing principles is a great big picture goal to aim for, especially if you’re looking to build a business around your expertise. Creating all of these assets is not something you do overnight. Knowing what to do next is the first question to answer.
If you are starting from scratch, the best advice I can give you now is to fill in the knowledge gaps you are missing. Education and creating awareness of what you need to know that you don’t know is the first step. After that you can begin the practical implementation steps that take you towards your goals.
Internet Marketing Blogger (soon to be author)
I have been reading your blog on and off for a few months now, however after seeing you live on stage on Sunday at the Gold Coast, I decided to have a more detailed look.
It also helped that I added you as a friend on Facebook and Twitter and hence got a reminder to read your latest article.
Your articles raises some interesting points. As a child you are told to “do what you love and you will never work a day in your life” whilst this might be fine – you may never make any money!
I am relevantly new to the online marketing field, however as a web designer I have a lot of the technical knowledge down. Prior to the internet I often used books to learn new things – mainly due to the lower price.
As I got older I moved more to live events and have recently purchased some products (not yours yet!). I agree that yes you get the same or similar information from books to live – however the way the information is delivered allows you to learn and implement quicker, which I guess is the reason why you and other can charge $2000 for the same information contained in a $30 book or free blog post.
Since your speak on Sunday, I have taken action towards achieving my online marketing goals. My mother and I have decided to go on this journey together and we both chose blogging as our first strategy, and this was mainly from our easy and stress free your talk made it sounds. It might be interesting to note that I also have a copy of a book on blogging – “How to make six figures online” and I am only half way through and have taken no action from it – although I have had the book for almost 3 months.
I guess this is why internet marketers who use live events or recording or live events can charge more, as people are paying for results not just information.
I am looking at forward to this journey.
Timely advice. Liked the answer. The lines between author, blogger and internet marketer look blurry online but I’d say I fall under category three, that of Internet marketer. I have a blog as well to enhance credibility and ten years experience making money online (with many mistakes) You’re right; it’s not easy, takes a lot of hard work and dedication, but I feel I’m getting there at last. Thanks for the pointer about long term planning.
Looking good Yaro; had gotten rather used to the mane but this is much better 🙂 I look forward to the book
Nice post, Yaro. I too arrived at the answer “All of the Above” even before I was half-way through it… and thought of Seth Godin who writes lovely books, has a top class blog (on which he sells books) and leverages the recognition and fame into more lucrative speaking and consulting engagements.
Indeed, that’s the approach I explain in my book, “Think, Write & Retire” – though for personal reasons, I don’t use all of the three in my own profit model.
This is why I dilly dallied between internet marketing and blogging for a while. In the end I simply decided to focus on what I love: sharing my ideas and writing (aka, blogging).
But it’s definitely been helpful to be apart of numerous tribes over the years because I understand the different sectors, where as many new bloggers don’t understand monetization and internet marketers don’t understand how to build a community or longevity.
I wouldn’t say internet marketers don’t understand how to build a community. For many internet marketers, that is their prime strategy. I don’t think you can properly manage a blog without also being an internet marketer. Your blog will only get so much traffic without a little bit of marketing help.
Well internet marketers build a different type of community, where they’ll have raving fans come out of the shadows during launches and when it suits them, while the better bloggers are able to be a relevant part of the conversation on a continuous basis.
Sounds to me that the best model is to have a partnership of three – an author, a blogger and an internet marketer
Amen to that Leonie. You definitely need to incorporate the aspects of all three in order to be exceptionally effective.
Definitely, a combination of the three is important, each speciality brings with it it’s own strengths, Internet marketing makes the money, blogging buiulds trust and a relationship with your audience and publishing a book – as you say – gives you that certain street cred. You can even use each element to compliment the other two.
Yaro your blog is one of my favourite and on my blog roll. I love reading your articles.
Unfortunately being in marketing I have a high distrust of online courses, events, etc…so never sign up. However, I noted with great interest that you are a “soon to be author”. Now books are something I buy so I am really excited to see you published and certainly would buy your book (depending on subject ofc)
I agree with you that building a solid foundation for your business provides a longer term success and a shaky foundation can be a quick win, but the house falls down in the first big storm. Saying that, most Internet Marketers seem to plan for that and are on the next bandwagon as soon as each new site is up and running. The successful ones seem to have hundreds of sites. I think they work a lot harder than they let on.
Thanks again for all your great articles.
the truth is that, as SA Music Man already said, the most beneficial outcome could be reached when you combine these three roles together. However, in my opinion, without the right skills that the Internet marketer has, you wouldn’t achieve the success you need.
Well, I think that every person who tries to earn money online needs to know at least some basics of the Internet marketing. Without it, you won’t achieve much online. Even if you are a good author of posts or run a successful blog, and don’t know much about marketing, you would probably lose in the fight with your counterparts. However, as everyone knows, the best soultion would be to combine the three roles together.
Yes it definitely helps a lot to know the basics of internet marketing. At the very least, you can pay someone to help you with marketing. If you don’t know the basics, you might not hire the right people at the right price.
Saw the link to this on Facebook. Haven’t visited for a while. I like what you’ve done with the new site. Looks great. Think I should catch up on some of the recent articles I’ve missed. Keep up the good work Yaro!
My first answer on who makes money is not the ones you want me to pick from. My answer is the person who bets on horses. I find it difficult to understand why you would even ask the question.
Awesome post,, lately you see alot of “new” bloggers following IM techniques. Like I learned a while back from a top blogger,, sell less advertising, and more of your own products.
Making 10% on a affiliate product doesn’t compare to making 100% of your products rev.
Good point John. I have been slaving away for my 10% when I could instead create a product for 100% profits. I really should be creating at least an ebook or something like that to make better profit.
Where on this continuum does having a membership site fall?
Are you considered to be an “Internet Instructor” if you have a membership site?
Another extension, perhaps beyond the Author phase, is that of a paid speaker; do you earn fees for your speaking engagements?
I’d call a membership site an information product you sell online, hence it’s an Internet marketing technique.
Hi Yaro, thanks a bunch for another great post!
My partner and I stumbled into our early success by starting with marketing our eBook in a relatively small, unglamorous niche (how to start a cleaning business).
Three more eBooks followed, and a couple years ago we switched over to a membership site model. It’s working out really well.
Thank you for so clearly pointing out the distinctions between these three terms. I learn so much from your posts.
Nice article! It’s one thing to go into internet marketing and another to be able to write authoritatively on goods and services rendered on the internet. As an internet marketer, I find myself in a constant state of learning and searching for more information. It’s how I found your blog. While internet marketing offers great rewards, it’s far from an over-night success. Credibility and relationship building are crucial. Thanks for the great blog. I’ll stay tuned through Twitter!
This is a timely post for me since I am trying to figure out the best ways to monetize my blogs while developing a more and more loyal audience.
I would love to see a detailed list (do this, then do this, then do this…) so that I could begin to implement this. After reading this post, I’m not sure how to implement–love the idea, just need help putting into motion.
If you want the step-by-step process to start a blog and turn it into a business, that’s what my coaching program is all about –
I prefer to be a blogger selling my own products, but more so I like being a photographer that uses a blog to reach the masses, but not like an IMer. When I think IM I think quick, make money schemes that last a few weeks and then die out from saturation. Slow and steady is the way to go and sell your own product and keep all the money.
IM doesn’t have to be quick and dirty. if you really want to sell a lot of product, you still should use IM techniques. There are a lot of ways to go about getting traffic and/or search engine rankings. Some of those techniques are better for long term strategies.
There really are so few probloggers in my opinion. The only pros out there I consider are heather at dooce.com perez hilton and perezhilton.com darren at his 3-4 sites, Pavlina at his site and a few others.
Most others fall into two categories, internet marketers who happen to have a blog, and media companies
Yaro and John chow are internet marketers who have blogs
Pete Cashmore (mashable) Mike Arlington (Techcrunch) Alborz Fallah (Car advice) had blogs that grew into media companies.
Everyone else is just a wannabe or a traditional blogger as in they have a web log of their life. Just my two cents.
I think your reasoning is too limited utke. What about someone like Fran Kerr who blogs at http://www.highonhealth.org?
The problem with this sort of mentality is that you are looking only at what you are aware of, where there are so many blogs you don’t know about because they are niches that don’t interest you.
I think my point got a little lost, my fault. Let me re phrase: I was attempting to define what I thought it meant to be a “problogger”, “blogger”, “internet marketer”. Regardless of niche, topic, industry, or whatever interests me personally.
I view it like a spectrum, on one end you have media companies, on the other end you have “traditional” bloggers. Ill start on one end.
media companies: like techcrunch, mashable, caradvice, talking point memo the list goes on and on. Once were blogs run by one person, but have grown in traffic and revenue and now opperate as a media company, employing multiple paid bloggers, lawyers, ad managers, events around the world, making millions a year.
problogger: someone who can make a full time income from blogging primarily through ad networks, direct advertising, etc. Like Perez hilton, or Dooce.com, or darren at DPS. Meaning they only focus on delivering content primarily, there product is their content. THESE types of people are the very few. That was my original point.
Think about it, like you always say, if you want to make big money you have to have something to offer, something to sell. This is ONE of many reasons why people fail at trying to become probloggers b/c they think there going to make a killing with adnetworks alone. People to do that you have to have hundereds of thousands if not millions of uniqe visitors a month. For most, this will never happen. As such, most people have to make products and leverage their blog and when they do…
They just now beacame internet marketers: an entreprenur that leverages his blog into email lists and product offerings, affiliate marketing etc. on top of doing everything that a pro blogger does (ie good compelling content and seo). The person behind highonhealth.org fits this. An internet marketer is not just limited to the MMO industry, it can be any topic.
Traditional bloggers: People who use there blog as a journal and make no money off it, and have no intention to make money off it, or have NO IDEA how to make money off it.
To your point, Frank Kerr is an internet marketer writing on another internet marketers blog. “Internet Marketer” shouldent be a bad word, you can still care about your content and your readers, I just use it as a way to describe how someone makes a living full time in this game.
CEMIL: so sorry to hear you got taken for a ride. It takes a long time. I do SEM and make a full time living of the internet, I also have a blog that Im growing and want to make it into something like timsykes.com,
(its not utkemonster.com, thats just my personal site) im 26, and have been doing this since i was 20, i have a netork of niche sites that makes me more than enough to live off and I have a blog that im trying to grow into an authority site. Where I am today is the culmination of years of decisions and ACTION. Action is what separates the winners from the loses. Learn all that you can, but dont forget to start taking action. Don’t take all advice at face value, test it. Also, make sure its something that your passionate about, like I always tell my friends who want to do what i do b/c they think they will be happier/successfull, but hate to write and have no interest in the interent other than making money:
If you chase your passions the money will follow, if you chase the money, your like everyone else.
I was of the same mentality as utke until a few months ago. I had a very bad experience with a internet marketing coaching company where I lost a lot of money (that I didn’t have) and only really benefited in one ways – the creation of my thirst for knowledge.
It is probably true that there are those exceptional folks who made a living off blogging – like Yaro.
But seriously, I have only been learning about this for a few months and I like many aspects of blogging and internet marketing in general.
I think that if you’re on top of your game you’ll be in the pound seats, whether you are an author, blogger, internet marketer or fisherman, for that matter. What has happened is that the advent of the internet has opened up a previously tight circle of publishers and authors, enabling people to publish and market their work direct, without the need of a third party. As a consequence censorship & tweaking of material by publishing houses is pretty much a thing of the past, with honest material being presented to audiences who wish to peruse it.
The way you break all this down is just superb Yaro. There are indeed lots to learn here. Great post!
@La Digue, that’s because Yaro is the man, and is brilliant with words =D
I think as with most things it comes down to effort those willing to put in the hours and the hard graft will succeed those who do little and expect money to fall in their lap wont simple. As you said any of the ways above will work if you have a plan and carry it out.
Great post Yaro. I totally agree that it’s important to combine all of those skills into one goal. The internet marketer may not have the compelling writing talent of the author and the blogger may not have the marketing skill, but if you combine all 3 together and learn what you need to learn from each discipline, you can create an unstoppable money-printing machine.
Most peope just won’t take the time to get THAT good at one thing. Those that do get to keep the gold. Keep up the great posts. I’ve been following your podcasts for years, but have just got back into your blog.
All three is the magic answer and the magic number. As an author, Internet marketer and blogger, I find the use of material in the various formats a great way to provide valuable information, gain and maintain market position and grow the expert status.
However, one must keep the end result in mind. What are they trying to accomplish? And, keep the word “repurpose” in the forefront.
It’s actually very simple, but not necessarily easy. It requires an organized process to keep this going for any period of time. Many people start out like gangbusters, but soon lose interest, don’t think they are getting a quick enough result or go after the “next shiny object.”
Yaro, as always, great article that has incredible value to it.
Yes, most bloggers don’t integrate email marketing as they should.
I just reminded the guy in the mirror to get with it… 🙂
Robert Plank is a master of using these to look for his emails
and then driving you to his blog about IM.
You have an amazing blog here Yaro!
A great resource to all marketers, bloggers, and authors.
Dr. Michael Quadlander
The authors make the money. Because ever blog does not need of Internet marketer
I think it is tough to say who really makes more because there are different expertise levels and luck levels for each. You could have a blogger making a lot more than an author and marketer or vice versa. I guess from an overall view I would have to go with the marketer per capita as they can expand more quickly but an author if they have one great product could make more. It is a very tricky question.
Awesome! I love how you differentiated the three and finally came up with the solution those professionals are also missing. Internet marketing principles definitely needs to be applied when one is creating blogs and like you (Yaro) aspire to become an author someday to penetrate a new market.
Thanks for the inspiration!
I think they all make money.Question is who makes more.
That really depends on the actual participation of each of them in the internet. Normally, internet marketers profits them selves relatively high compare to bloggers and writers since their action is confined only to specific business strategy.
There’s another option open to prolific authors who want to get paid. It beats writing free ebooks in the hope somebody will buy something one day.
There are plenty of sites out there looking to do better in search engines. These companies hire SEO specialists. Most SEO guys are incapable of writing interesting content aimed at their client’s target market. SEO guys expect their clients to come up with the content, which they will then optimise.
Most of their clients are either incapable of creating interesting content, or too busy. Catch-22.
A good author can get paid very well for writing 250-300 word articles destined for web sites undergoing optimisation. It all works best when the content appears gradually over time, rather than all at once – which generates regular work.
A smart author might even seek out lots of SEO guys, and keep him/herself as occupied as s/he wants.
Very nice article, i think it is a mix of all three. If you don´t have blogging skills you didn´t create nice content, if you don´t have online marketing skills you will not sell ads or make money through affiliate marketing!
I think you are spot on – myself being a fledgling internet entrepreneur, this is just the type of smart & sane thinking I need. After reading hundreds of pages and forums of advice I am full and overwhelmed by theoretical knowledge of what to do but trying to do everything is frustrating = building pages & adding content, building links, creating digital products, etc. I tried several niches and even bought an already built site, but except pennies had no monetary reward yet. I simply do not know how to prioritize tasks & what exactly to do. I’ve been trying to do everything myself till now, but this seems to be too much, so I now finally have the curage to try some outsourcing (never tried it, so had some reservations about it). Also, the site I bought has an email list, which has grown to several hundred addresses without me using it even once. I am now confident I need to focus on the email list & outsource the tedious task that can be reasonably well defined. The internet marketers you mentioned – I am pretty sure they have long journeys behind them to get to their present efficiency levels…
PS: I just found your site today and this is the first post I read, but I surely am going to read others too 🙂
how much can a site worth if its made from free templates, and now has arround 200 page views per day?
What difference does it make any way? I know a plumbing contractor who employs five people, who all make a decent living and enable him to make a great deal more than just a living. If you do what you do well and in the right spirit, you can make money doing just about anything. There is also that element of providence that makes or breaks careers and if one accepts that life can be very successful.
I enjoyed reading this post which looks realistic to me.
From my experience, I agree with the blogger and author points.
I didn’t know about the Internet marketers which sounds interesting to me.
Yaro, comment No.39 is not by me. Someone is spamming.
Best place to start is look at Click bank for affiliate programs and see what you like there is so much free information on the net you can learn all about it.Be patient and learn the ropes.
Thanks for this.. I think theyre all the same and related, you must do all of this earn money online.
I think collaboration of the three makes you earn most, you will still need the skills of a blogger and an internet marketer even if you’re already an author
You just keep impressing me with your kick-ass posts Yaro! thanks for all the useful shares!
I liked your article. I agree that combination of the three is important. Anyhow I can say that you should have good Internet marketing and blogging technique in order to sell product and achieve quality traffic.
You have laid out a brilliant business model or strategy for the person who has the skills to incorporate all three mediums: blogger, author, and internet marketer. We always hear about “repurposing”. Well, this is repurposing in its basic form, I think.
Thank you, Yaro, for writing posts that get my creative juices flowing when I’m feeling like I’ve run out of gas (and ideas on how to differentiate myself from the rest).
I believe you have to be 18 but if you can get your mom dad are other adult to sign up for you you can get started right away.
Paypal will send you checks in the mail are make direct deposits to a bank account after they have issued 3 checks in your account name.
I’d say I fall under the blogger category. I just started my blog a little over a month ago. Haven’t had much progress as far as RSS subscribers go, but I’m dedicated and I realize it takes time. Right now just focusing on content. Great post by the way!!
first of all thanks for clearing the difference between the 3.. i think i am a mixture of all three but more of a internet marketer than a blogger or author ..very nice post i will follow you on twitter and Facebook too.
Really appreciate the effort you put into this one,
Maybe you mentioned it already,
Did you list Public Speaking, you know, talking in public at internet marketing gigs?
I know this is MASSIVE in the US, public speaking is big there anyway,
I think not so big in Australia.
Internet marketers never get enough credit, it’s very hard for most people to make money blogging, and being an author seems hit or miss. It’s an excellent question that’s got my wheels turning. It’s dependent upon so many things but when talking the best of the best… authors (ex. JK Rowling). There could easily be a blogger or internet marketer who makes more than her, but I can’t think of any. But on average… I would say internet marketers. Each comes with their own risks.
Wow! That was a lot of great information in ONE post…it must be the author in you! 🙂
I’m aiming to be a great internet marketer and your comments about building targeted email lists that convert…are very, very relevant.
Great article Yaro! This morning a friend sent me a link to the review on the Headway theme. From there I subscribed to your blog and came across this article. I look forward to reading your future blog posts. OBTW, I usually abandon posts that are this long but yours held my interest all the way to the end!
I was wondering if original mountain dew or original pepsi makes more money for the pepsi company. I know they are working together i was just wondering which is the bigger product and brings in more revenue.

Wow, figuring all of this out on my own would be a nightmare – even having your blog as a reference, I can see all of this taking an immense amount of time to learn. But that’s what separates those who have massive success from those who just can’t seem to get over a hump. I will ponder over all of this. Thank you!
