    Have you noticed how when someone makes money online and claim they will share it with you. They end up using it to earn more money or they never give you the important info you need. They are never specific. Just so broad.
    I want to hear your opinions please.

    Yeah.. Because if they share the exact idea with you.. because they dont want to have competition.

    They only share some methods.. you need to be creative to make money with it..

    simply because they don't want competitors. the more people using their methods means more competitions less income. they would only share those ideas to you if they have found other methods that can gain much more money than the one that they share. :)

    If somebody gives you a free method, I think it's fair to say you're expected to add your own twist, otherwise it becomes quickly saturated and useless.

    If you're paying for a method, though, I do think that you should be given a lot more guidance.

    This is a marketing forum, I know it might be misleading at first because there's a lot of enthusiasm. And rightfully so. Everybody looking for a way to break his chains. But this is a forum about marketing and specifically BH marketing. In such a place everybody is your competition.

    After all it makes perfect sense. Would you share your properties with a few hundred/thousand random ppl? Would you share your best money making tactics risking to waste the very potential that feeds you every day?

    Most of the time sharing a money making strategy in a public forum equals wasting it forever. Think of what happens when you work for a high-tech company: you'll probably have to sign some sort of NDA. It's not that different whether or not it's an explicit or implicit act.

    IMO what you can expect from the public section of a forum of this nature is a general overview about the main ways to profit, a nice exchange of opinions to keep your brain fresh and foster brand new ideas. It's what makes this information so addictive. But that's all about it.

    At least here most ppl are not trying to sell rehashed ideas (read => scam you) freely available everywhere else like in some other well known places... ;) Anyways, don't fret bro, it's just the way it is. Dura lex sed lex.

    In most cases, when someone is sharing something for free, the method is usually old and out dated, or they don't use it anymore. When they are selling the method, the same could apply, or they could actually be selling it and using it the same way they describe, but are generally making more money off selling the eBook than they are with the method, or it's something that can not be saturated or cause for a loss of income due to competitors. Of course this isn't with every eBook or method, but in most cases that's what happens in my opinion.

    Yes, but that's because they're trying to upsell you. Unless it is a free method...

    you expect to be spoon fed? only a fool would reveal all their secrets in how they made the money.If they offer it for free then you can be sure they just reveal a small potion of it and even if you pay you can be sure too they don;t give out everything, or that the method doesn't really work with everyone
