Isn't it funny how people want to sell online "secrets": that they got for free?

I don't understand why all of these websites advertise the big bucks that they are making from this or that company but they still feel that they need to make money off of you to let you in on the secret. The thing is that most companies that pay affiliates also pay affiliates for refering other affiliates into the business. So they are already being paid to introduce you to this "business opportunity" so what is it that they need our money for?

The reason they try to sell us something is because what they are actually doing is selling nothing, they are there to take your money! If they really were that rich they wouldnt need to ask us for money to get their secret, and we wouldve found it ourselves and heard about it!! There is no such thing as not working for your money!! If you dont work for your money then somebody else is working for your money, by that I mean if they have a big secret then they wouldnt want to share it no matter how much people are willing to pay for it as it would make them more money to keep it to themselves. They are merely taking your money for pure financial gain. Therefore they arent really working hard for their money, you are working hard for their money!! =D

Because what they're selling most likely either never worked, or no longer worked :P. That's why I never buy them xD.

they want your money because it's green and it spends. i don't buy those how too make money ebooks. if someone really has a great way for you to make money, they are going to give it to you., because it will make them money to have you join under them.

there is no such thing as free, at some point somewhere someone is paying, tho from a affiliates point of view if someone has found a way to make a lot of income then why give it away for free ?? look at all those e-books its just basically people doing the re-search etc etc and then selling you it. Though from a point of view of time I would rather pay for a proven system than struggle for a year trying different systems and using up my valuable time. There is a lot of money to be made online but its all trial and error
