    i've been doing some research about ringtones and i've found alot of sites that offer them for free. the real songs plus make your own ringtones not those cheap computer generated crap.

    so why would someone spend money for a monthly service when you can get them for free?

    am i missing something?

    thanks

    some people are lazy and a lot of people aren't as resourceful/computer savvy as we are.

    Precisely. Many people just won't have the time of energy to spend it on browsing through for a ringtone they can get for free. The price for a ringtone isn't high so they are willing to pay simply to save themselves some time. Of coure there are many resourceful chaps online, but still most people are lazy.

    i didnt make crap promoting ringtones

    i even framed the offer so it said free just verify your phone not the $9.95 they would actually be charged.

    setup adwords campaign and came out a little under even.

    they're extremely easy to purchase... imagine how many kids/teenagers there are out there with a cellphone that's paid for by mommy and daddy... all they have to do is enter their phone number on a website and then enter a confirmation pin.. all while assuming their parents will will foot the bill and wont notice..

    I started a site that sold $0.50 ringtones with no contracts or other fees and nothing else to worry about, and any song could be downloaded, no questions asked. I made absolutely nothing.

    I am wondering this too.
    But you can see ringtones offers/CPA are everywhere, so it must be working.
    I just learnt what you don't like doesn't mean the same the others.

    I absolutely hate those text 22467 things where you see a sign-up fee at the bottom of $29.99 per month and $49.99 right away for 1 chances to dial. I hope that nobody is that ridiculously stupid.

    bummer. maybe in their opinion you made it sound way to good to be true. you know if it sounds to good it probably is.

    are you still doing it? maybe the traffic was just lame?

    Yeah the payouts are pretty nice, but you need to promote an offer where the smal print is pretty damn small, cause its full of nasty details for the signuper

    you can get free porn too...but yet mofos pullout credit card every day. Ringtones are targeted towards younger crowds ...especially little girls that never read the fine print ;)
