Many people love to grab the opportunity of being free, free gift items.....free to earn, free to register so on and so forth. But some wise man don't believe in a business for free! For them there's no such thing as free in realm of business. Business' purpose is for profit how could a businessman earn in a free business? Do you believe in free? Why?

I don't believe in free offers. More often than not, there is a string attached on those free offers. In this world of ours, there's no such thing as free lunch. Just think of this...Why would somebody you don't know give you something free? Example, if I am going to be given 2 options to join a money making site in the internet, 1) is joining for free and 2) is a site with membership fee, hands down, I will choose the 2nd option. You may think I am nuts but I have analysed the different internet money making opportunity and free sites will give you an opportunity to earn money but the money you earn is not commensurate to the amount of time you spend on that site to earn money. What? you earn 10$ in 6 months? Usually, these sites only use you for their own benefit. The owners of these free sites use millions of people for them to own millions of dollars. While the people they use earn only cents per day or per week or per month, these site owners earn millions of dollars per month. That is equal sharing of wealth??? On the otherhand, the sites with membership fees will give you the training, the tools the support and guidance to make your money making venture faster and more efficient. You don't get these things on free sites. Yes, some may argue that the tools, the support, the techniques are available on-line for free BUT you have to look for them. Imagine the time you will again spend looking for these tools and techniques. In joining the sites with membership fees, those tools are readily available for you. They are most of the time tried and tested already. It's like the site has done the leg work for you. If you want to make money online, faster and more efficient way, don't go with free sites. Don't hesitate spending money for your business as long as the amount is REASONABLE. Just think of the money you spend as an investment or seed for your business to grow. Again, sad to say but the truth of the matter is, there is no such thing as free anymore. Cheers!

Wow, complete information! But what if I spend a cost to join, is there really true money profit in here? Fear of scam and illegitimate sites these are factors I always consider. To pay in one time for continues profits is reasonable I could consider. But to lost a money for no assurance that would make me sick.

Agree with you. So the first step would be to do extensive search for sites that interests you. If you are able to find a site, the 2nd step and a very important step is to research that site in the internet. There are blogs or articles about that site or reviews that will help you determine if the site is a scam or legit. Another thing that I normally do is to write them emails using the contact information they publish in their site. If they have good response time, meaning if they answer your questions immediately then there's a good chance that these sites are legit. I must admit, it is very hard to tell what sites are legit and what sites are scam but with proper and extensive researching you will have a better chance of knowing what sites are legit. And, same as the business outside the internet world, investing money in any business is a gamble. Sometimes you lose that money and sometimes it pays off! So only invest money that is ok for you to lose if you want to invest money in the online business because there is always a risk that you can lose that money even if the site is legit. Cheers!

Yeah! That's the really scenario either to win or loss, as gamble. And that's why I need the one that's proven and tested. If there is one then I'm willing to put an initial investment affordable to my pocket. So with this I have to follow your advices and provided steps. These ways I think are effective and beneficial. Thank you so much for the information. I'm just curious if any you have tried legit and already paid you a profit for several times in a reasonable date. Happy mylotting!

Nothing is every really "free" in my opinion. It costs you something, even if it's just time! There's always an investment! When you fill out a "free" registration it may not cost you any more than your time, however, even when you register without price, you get inundated with emails trying to sell you something! There's always a cost somewhere... promise!

Yes, it's a trick sometimes they would let us sign up and free at first and later they would feed us with unstoppable junk letters. I experienced that. Thank you for participating here!

I love free stuff but there is always something you have to give in returne. If you get free stuf fom a store is just a sample so you can try it and retur to buy the original size or if they give out gift cards is to make you go and buy something and at the end you endup getting more and you end up paying form your pocket. The free registration to sites to make money are never free because to make any money in those sites we have to pay for internet, electrisity and we are also putting our time and work to get some money back. But we actually waste more than we might be getting back well that is inmy case because I don't know muthc of how this works. So really noting is free there is always a catsh.

i like free things but i never believe in free things in business... my father is a businessman and he always tell me not to fall to the trap of free things offered by he store because there is no such thing as a free thing... the free thing is already included in the total cost and we are actually paying for it... it is just the strategy of the business to attract customers... you are right... business is for profit and there is no way they are going to survive if they are giving free gifts... take care and have a nice day...

Yeah! Here is free to join but you have to spend time and effort to enjoy more and earn higher. In every business there would always be the cost such as, monetary (money), time, and energy or services. You're free to share here, thanks!

Hi, Zearah. I don`t believe in free. Here, in India, there is a famous saying, "To find something, You have to lose something". It is possible a business or a program that pays does not require you to invest money, but it will require something else, like time and knowledge here at mylot. Happy Mylotting!!

Hi zearah, People in business usually used free item as a bite to get people buy from them. In online world, people use this method to a subscriber for their website. This is a licenses you give them to e-mail you about their articles, newsletters and promoting their product. And this is a legit ways. Business people didn't like to do spamming (not like yesteryear) because they don't want to tarnish their reputation. And spamming also against a law. I have written about this on my blog. You can see it under title "When FREE is not free at all". Happy mylotting and have a nice day.
