There are a lot of people out there telling you to join their free program and get free advertising, OK it costs you nothing to join.

But (and there is always a but) that is only a way to entice you intorepparttar program so they can persuade you to join there paid services.

That's not a con that's a business strategy, you do get something for free, and you will make some sales. However allrepparttar 101080 big players know that to be a success you need to put your message in front of people who will buy, and free programs are full of people who want things for free.

It turns out he spends over a $1000.00 per month on advertising, gets about 1300 hits a month and makes 25 sales of a product that starts at $200.00.
