The truth about 1-900 numbers

Written by David Bell

Continued from page 1
There are really two big problems with 900 number's. The first is perception. 900 number's seem really idiotic to most people. If you have a great business idea or way to make money, 900 number's would probably be one ofrepparttar worst places to advertise. How many friends do you have that call 900 number's each month? How many 900 number's did you call last month? These arerepparttar 127553 sorts of things you have to think of when you are going to start a business. If you would never userepparttar 127554 services, why would anybody else? This is something that people like Don Lapre would never tell you. Don lapre just wants you to think that 900 numbers are just a big cash cow. Notrepparttar 127555 reality. The other thing is money. You need a lot of money to really get a 900 numbers going. Starting with $500 isn't going to do it. You need a heck of a lot more than that. Most ofrepparttar 127556 big company's have $500,000 monthly advertising budgets (that's even out of my league.) You are much better off getting into direct marketing, network marketing, internet marketing or even real estate investing over dealing with 900 numbers I hope this helps in your future marketing decisions.
