Are you tired of all those
Are you tired of having your
mail box filled every day with all those scams and pyramid schemes?
I certainly am. Do you really believe that by signing up with any
of those programs you will make $7,000 $10,000 or even a million
dollars in the next two weeks as some of those programs claim? Come
on! get real! The only people that make money with those pyramids
are the ones that start them or the very few at the top. The rest
all loose their hard earned money and waste their valuable time
trying to promote those programs and they are indeed very lucky if
they manage to break even. With the speed with which things move on
the internet, if the program is more that a few days old you are
out of luck.

Some are called
Downline clubs or some such name. In those you sign-up and at
some later date you will be asked to join one or more of their
affiliates. In order to qualify for commissions, you have to buy
a certain quantity of products. In order to stay qualified, this
will escalate, until you end up buying products that you dont
need, or much more than you can possibly use.
Others are called gifting clubs or something
like it. This is just another pyramid variation and just as
illegal. Recently I was even offered unlimited loans that you never
have to pay. Good grief! I stopped believing in Santa Claus a long
time ago. How about you?
Those are outright pyramids and are probably
illegal in most countries. (BEWARE!) There many variations on those
two but it all comes out to the same thing in the end.
In order to make real money on the net you
have to sell REAL products, WORK at it and stay away from all those
I just picked up in my mail box something
called: "The Quick Cash Secret Banking System" which promises that:
Using this powerful cash system to generate $1,500, $2,500 and even
$3,000/week! We will show you how to build this $5000 into a cash
flow of $50,000 within A few months. In addition, we reveal to you,
a powerful, jealously-guarded, little known New York
multi-millionaires' fast cash creation strategy that will enable
you to raise "$100,000 in 24hrs", instantly, without any investment

For this he wants $100.00. You see, this is a
Secret System so you cant possibly know ahead of time what you will
be getting for your $100.00. Also I have to ask myself. If this
system is so profi why does he need to sell it on the net at
$100.00 a throw. In spite of all the protest to the contrary this
is probably quite illegal. This is a variation of what is called a
Ponzi Scheme, which is quite illegal.

still have to follow the above rules.
Communication services, Like Website design,
Web hosting, ISPs etc... There again follow the rules. The

Software. It should be reasonably priced and
you should have the possibility for the customer to download a demo

Some of the things you should look for in the
product that you are going to sell:
Is it a usefull product and is there a need
Is it a consumable or will you get repeat
Is there the possibility of residuals as

product can quickly ruin your credibility.

superior or different than everything else that is being offered
Preferably it should be unique or offer attractive features that
are not available anywhere else.
You should get a guarantee from the company,
that once you have made a sale, that client remains your client as
long as you remain affiliated with the company.
And finally it should be a product that is
personally attractive to you. This will make it much easier for you
