There are a lot of high status jobs and career trajectories that can earn you a lot of money. There are also some high paying careers, like being an actor or pop-star that will get you the admiration and envy of both friends and strangers. These are the type of carers that I consider VIP level. Just having gig doing these sorts of things will make others see you as a total badass, baller, winner etc…
But one job you may not have ever considered, or even thought about is being an Internet marketer. I know, at first you may be skeptical as to whether marketing products on the Internet is really all that cool. Well, personally I think that there are a lot of cool things about this little known career path, and in this short post I’m going to tell you all about them!
1 – Celebrity Status.
Being an Internet marketer means that you sell stuff via the Internet. Obviously that in itself doesn’t really make you famous. However, one of the best ways to make money as an Internet marketer is to create your own products and services, and then to build an audience of followers/subscribers/customers, who are eager to learn from you, to buy from you, and to admire you like you are some kind of guru. While you may not become a household name through your online marketing efforts, the fact is that if become an online publisher and are the face of your company, then you are going to have thousands and even possibly even millions of people who know who you are, and who see you as some kind of Internet celebrity. If this is a business model that interests you then you can may want to take a look at the detailed instructions on how to set up and run an online publishing business provided in this Publish Academy review.
2 – Money.
I’m not saying that everybody who gets into Internet marketing gets rich. Heck, a lot of people probably lose money, so please don’t take this as financial or career advice. That said, if you do go into IM, and you are a somebody who has the right skills, drive and ambition, and you follow a good plan, and you work at it everyday, then you can definitely make a lot of money. How much money? Well, Anik Singal (he’s the guy who created that Publish Academy program) has a 8-figure business. He is probably among the top earners, but there are a lot of millionaires, and tons and tons of people making six figures and multiple six figure incomes.
3 – Freedom.
This is where I feel that Internet marketing really has the edge over pretty much any other career out there. Think about it – as an Internet marketer you work for yourself. That means that you answer to no one. Sure you need to play by the rules, obey the law, and adhere to the terms dictated by the other companies and service providers that you work with. But other than that, you have total freedom. If you don’t want to work for a day, or a week, or a month, that is entirely up to you. You can take as much time off a you like so long as you have employees and contractors in place to monitor the infrastructure you have built.
Celebrity, money and freedom – sounds pretty VIP to me. And consequentially, the celebrity part is completely optional. There are many ways to run a success Internet marketing business that don’t require you to put your face in the public eye.
No doubt there is a lot to learn if you want to be successful in this field, but if you are ambitious, intelligent and hardworking then it can be a great way to earn a buck or two.
