Maybe not money, directly ... that's part of the frustration ... you have no idea why I do what I do
. Could be doing it for traffic - not the specific one you mentioned, perhaps, but some of the others do - to some Web site, garner valuta from the traffic. Could be doing it to acquire a mailing list -IM rule of thumb is that you make a buck per month per person on your mailing list. Could be doing it just to win a bet with a friend, or to get bragging rights in some group. Or, could be personal satisfaction, something like, "Hell, I can do better than that!"
Yes, there is money in it, but it's a lot of work, as well
. For instance, when I had a list, middle five (5) digits strong, I was making, seemingly, beau coup
coin. But I was also working sixteen (16) and eighteen (18) hour days, seven (7) days a week. When I finally got around to doing the math, I wasn't even averaging annual minimum wage
. And you need a pretty good plan ahead of time, a strategy on just how
you'll make money.
So, yeah, the money's there. But you need to have a plan on how you'll get it, a workable implementation. Also, luck and timing figure into the equation. Back in January of 2009, you could have sold a lot of Obama dolls in the US
- not so many now
So, yeah, but it ain't, not, never
gonna be casual
