I started my own money-making program today.

Am I insane? Probably. Is it going to be the huge success I want it to be? Probably not. Are any of you going to lose anything? Of course not. That's the whole reason I wanted to start this up. I found an equation that I think will work, and no one can lose any money on it - including myself (well, until I decide to opt for paid hosting...). I was sitting here thinking about all the scams out there... and realising how simple it would be to start a program that actually works, actually pays... and wondering why, with such simplicity, there are so many scams. So, I'm trying to bring my fellow online money-makers a system that works from someone they can trust. If you're interested, check it out. If you have any questions or suggestions, let me know. If you want to help me on my little trial run, sign up. It will cost you $1 - but if you can refer 2 people, you'll earn your $1 back, and I'm sure you're all members of enough referral-based programs that you can get at least that many. The math works, and hopefully my crazy idea will work... and then we can all make some cash. http://trustthemath.blogspot.com/welcome.html

So we just refer people to make money? That's all? People have a hard time referring people so I'm not sure why people would join. How are you keeping track of who buys something and who is a referral for someone? How is someone supposed to say they are a referral of someone? All you have is a link to send you a dollar.

Ok, I fixed it... sorry, it was an honest mistake - this is why I wanted people's comments, lol. Now, after you pay the $1, you will be forwarded to the affiliate page. From there, you can sign up as an affiliate and start selling. Thank you for making me catch this - thankfully it happened before I had angry customers yelling at me^^

Please hold while I look up the definition of a pyramid scheme XP We always hear about them, and are told that they are bad, but I don't think I've ever actually researched them myself... Nope, not a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schmes rely on multiple levels of referrals. They guarantee that if you join and refer a few people, you will have unlimited income because you will make continuous money as those people refer more people. My program is basic product sales. Try thinking of it in more concrete terms: I have a product of some sort... lets say it's a pen, instead of just an affiliate membership, since some people (including myself) can picture things better as a concrete object. I sell you a pen for $1. Then I tell you that if you send your friend to buy a pen, I'll split the profits with you 50/50. So you tell your friend to buy a pen, and you make $0.50. Tell another friend and you have your $1 back already. But when your friend tells someone else to buy a pen, your friend will get paid and you won't. That is the difference between a simple sales plan and a pyramid scheme.

I launched today. http://trustthemath.blogspot.com How much you make is directly related to how many people you refer. You pay $1 to sign up, and you get $0.50 for each person you refer - so refer two people and get your $1 back. There's lots more information on the site. If you're skeptical, check out the FAQs as well (including an explanation of why this is not a pyramid scheme, but a simple sales-for-commission model, like the one retail stores have been using for years). If you're still skeptical, please let me know why - I'm trying to get as much feedback as I can to help me make this endeavour a success.
