So do you think you've found the secret to making money online? Is it working for you and do you share it with others even if it means you may not get a referral or anything back for sharing it? It seems like all these ads say they have the secret to making money online and they're making loads of money and they can tell you all about it for a small fee.. Ok, i know scams etc.. Do you think if you indeed had the secret you'd make sure you profited from letting others know? Or would you give your advice for free?

Hi, I don't have the secret to make a lot of money online. All I know is to work hard and make money online. If I have the secret to make a lot of money online, then I will write it in an ebook and then sell it at cheap price. I know that once the secret is shared and used by people around the world, it will no longer powerful or effective. So, charging small fees for the secret is quite good.

I'm with you. I would most likely turn my knowledge into a book or book series. I don't think making money online is so much a secret than making money offline is a secret. Work smart, work well and work like hell. I am making some dollar there another here online and am always willing to teach other how I did it, especially if there is a referral program in place. And like in the first comment, netcommunity thrives on its members. The more active members there are the more profits there are to be made.

Hi, You are right. I will teach people how I make money too. If there is referral link, I will promote it more to get some referrals.

Thanks for the response. I think it'll help some not take for granted that everything is a scam if we know that we ourselves would not give the knowledge away for free if it was genuine. Ebooks is a great idea, they're affordable..Good one:)

Good question. I believe that the obvius and honest answer is yes, if I believed I had the secret to online money making I would try to gain something. Why wouldn't you? This is especially true about referral program sites. For instance, in my profile I have a link to my blog which offers proof that my site pays. Also on the blog is my referral link. But I guess sites asking you to pay money is actually a little too much.

Most of the sites claiming that they have the secret to make money charge for it and most are scams. So, yes, I would give it for free. if Im already making money from it, why not let others?

I think I'd give it for free too if I was making money from it. Thanks for the response.

I've read once on a blog a post about "secrets" - it's Phil Miranda's - http://philmir.com/wordpress/?m=200709 (you know, I couldn't write the blog title there - it contains a word which is violating myLot's terms LOL!!!!) I bookmarked it. An educational reading, and funny too! In fact, I agree, there isn't any secret. It's actually work, work and even more work, reading, learning... and handling, of course. Quoting a very successful marketer, Michael Cheney: "You will have heard this much used phrase: "Knowledge is power". Don't let anyone tell it you ever again. Why? Because it's absolute garbage. Knowledge is NOT power.... Knowledge applied is power!" I only hope I'd have more time to gain knowledge... and much, much more energy to apply it.

There is indeed having knowledge and applying it is a whole different thing, like people who talk about making money online and never endeavour to try and use it:) Thanks for your response.
