    Hello

    I am beginning to see the pattern. I get daily emails from broke/students/unemployed/druggies that can't afford any service/product etc but want to make "just a quick $5,000+ per month.."

    They can't even use a spell checker and i can see they have next to no intelligence yet they think they are capable of running a small business.

    I am starting to think most people surfing for "money opp's" are these people. Not the people with money to invest/spend etc. And I am getting bit tired of it. I feel like I am in the middle of a ghetto looking for high net-worth investors. I.M.H.O. 3/4's of the battle is finding people that can afford to pay. Try and get some broke mum of 5 to find $2,000+ is next to impossible.

    Anyone else agree/disagree? Shed any light on it?

    Thank you
    Jim

    There will always be people looking for freebies. And there will always be people willing to invest in themselves and their business. And if they aren't willing to invest then they aren't willing to run a business. A business takes time, money and effort to run, and it's a long term thing - not short term. So yes, I see your frustration.

    Then again, perhaps you should offer them a cheaper product with basic information in it. They want something for cheap so just give it to them. Just my two cents.

    Well since there's only that 1%, I suppose you could easily extrapolate that indeed most people on the Internets are broke.

    Hard to determine "broke" though. There is not a high cost of living where I'm at, so I can live pretty nicely off of $90k/year. If I was in California, I'd be broke.

    Start advertising to someone other than broke college students? Plenty of people want to make money online who already have money. Polls are never completely reliable, but this one said over 70% of Americans are unhappy with their jobs.

    but they are not my target. I am not interested in trying to help broke/frustrated people. They suck the life from me.

    Short answer: yes.

    It's a hard industry to excel in, but its well worth the dedication and work that's needed.

    I used to work for a forex company where I managed their sales platform. Probably 80% of their leads were Nigerian scammers. Another 15% were people looking to dump tons of money into a machine that always wins. The few wealthy people there were making millions of dollars in trades and didn't give two fucks if they lost a milllion in a few seconds.

    If you're selling money making tricks, people who already have money aren't looking for that crap. For an investor to take you seriously, you really need some kind of working prototype. I see a lot of people who think their idea is expensive, but really ideas are cheap.

    It is just same as offline business, so many employees and job seekers as compared to employers and available jobs. You keep landing in a lot of them because they are the majority.

    WEll, from my limited experience, I think the problem is that over the last few years, there has been a lot of "fluff" products slung across the net promising instant riches which has given IM the wrong reputation, and in turn people think that they can become the next DOT COM millionaire over night.

    Most people trying to make money online are not currently making money online. If they were they wouldn't be trying to make money online, they would be scaling or growing what they're already doing.

    Man what's up with all these BS posts from the new members lately? Is it just me or what. This forum is mostly a positive place man. Stop worrying about other people and focus on yourself. Yeah, lots of people don't make a lot. But lots of people do. lol come on. Take your frustrations to a gym instead, we're not here to listen to you whine.
