I Have Trouble Explaining…

I have trouble explaining what I do for a living. When people ask me what’s my job, that’s the beginning of my headache. The truth is most people don’t know what internet marketing is, let alone mentioning about affiliate marketing or niche marketing.

Normally, when I said “Internet Marketing”, people will continue to ask: “What do you sell online?” or “You design websites?” or “You run a blog shop?”

Well, with respect to the questions above:

  • I sell information.
  • No. I don’t design websites. I am an IT idiot (ok… not exactly idiot, but rather technically-challenged). I CAN’T do codings, HTML, Java etc.
  • No. I don’t run blog shop though I have tried selling on eBay previously. Selling physical products are just too troublesome and the margins are low.

So how should I explain to people what I do?

Nowadays, if people ask me about it, I will just say casually that I run my own internet business. 90% will probe further. So I will tell them I run several health websites (yes, my main niche at the moment), like a content publisher. That’s it.

Sometimes, I would love to say that I am a niche marketer. But I guarantee that 99.99% won’t know what it is and I have a lot of explainings to do after that. So I can’t be bothered.

So, call me an internet marketer, internet entrepreneur, affiliate marketer, niche marketer, infopreneur, content publisher, blogger. Whatever you like. I can accept them all! 😀

A New Beginning

28th April 2009 was a very important day for me.

It marked the day where I had finally quitted my job and going into full-time as an internet marketer. Yes, I have always wanted to be my own boss and I have waited for this day to arrive. No more waking up at 7.30am in the morning and report to work! For those who know me well, I am a person who need a lot of sleep. lol.

Well, I have never felt so good today. Waking up at 10.30am, meeting desmond for lunch at Raffles City and going for a relaxed swim at SMU. After the swim, taking a bus with no hurry and no crowd back home. Upon reaching home, took a short nap and dinner after that. And I went for a jog at 9.15pm. All these activities done at my own pace. I really love the freedom of “working from home”.
