It used to be the case that blogging was something you did in your spare time but a new report suggests that an increasing number of people are now turning these skills in to full time internet marketing jobs.
According to a report by the website InternetmarketingCoaching, data compiled from new jobs online has shown that an increasing number of people now class their full time work to be in internet marketing.
Monthly job statistics released in the US are used by many to be able to assess the state of the economy every month but these statistics have also shown a rise in the internet marketing career.
As the economy changes and alters the statistics show jobs that fall away from popular demand and new ones that enter the job market with internet marketing being one that has been rising through the ranks.
According to the report by InternetMarketingCoaching, many of the people who are working full time as internet marketers have never had any formal form of training with most simply using the knowledge they have built up by working on blogs in their spare time to then be able to turn internet marketing into their full time job.
But it takes a little more than the average knowledge to be able to make it as an internet marketer and now there are an increasing number of companies and online sites offering people the chance to learn more about this form of career.
Brian Hanson trains people in internet marketing, he said: “Affiliate marketing requires no product or service start up money. Affiliate market training is usually all that someone needs to get started earning money from simple promotion of established products and services online.”
The increase in people considering their full time work as being internet marketing shows a general shift in the different forms of work that are now available for people to do.
With many people now being able to be online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the opportunity to do a second job online or to work online as a full time option is more and more appealing to people.
Many people who work online do so from their own home which can cut down on travel costs, child care costs and event the costs of having lunch out each day.
In a world where many are feeling the pinch thanks to austerity measures across Europe and recessions in much of the western world any chance to cut down on costs is welcomed by many and could go someway in explaining the popularity of jobs such as internet marketing.
