why do you even need to "pre launch" it? Makes no sense to me but I dont have my own business. Can someone enlighten us all? Is this just a gimmick word?

Pre-Launch is supposed to make you think you're getting in on something brand new and if you get in at the start,you'll make more money.Of course,if the program is a scam or fails,you wasted a bunch of time.

I liked the way you phrased that comment. I was kinda leaning in the same direction as you. So far, nothing tells me otherwise.

Pre-launch is mostly used to indicate that a software, program or website is open for a limited amount of people to test. It's just another word for Beta or Alpha.

So if the testing does not work, they wont open the site? I dont believe this would be so which leaves me back to my first observation. Why even bother teting? Maybe its a form of marketing to see if the program is worth trying?
