Is It Just Me Or Does It Get Annoying When People Want Everything For Free?

    I have been a member here for a few months and I have to say that I have learned so much in these few months that it is pretty ridiculous. My life revolves around BHW now as I am living in my parents living room with my biz partner, working 12 hour days on our two businesses. People have been so helpful here and really have contributed to my motivation for success. Without BHW, I would be far far behind in my journey to success.

    The only thing that bugs me is when I try and give an informative post and then I get people saying, "can I have your list of AA directories," "how about them lists, huh?" Some of them are rude and its like wtf would I just give you things that cost money and time? I am always open to tradiong things because I think we all work hard for templates, lists, etc. and sharing is caring :) But when you are rude and asking me for a list and I have no clue who you are, why would I give it to you? All I know is you could just go ahead and sell that list on fiverr and now that list is useless to me because it is spammed to hell.

    What do you guys think? Am I totally wrong, should I just give out everything that I do? Or am I right in that we should share our hard work together?

    Thanks

    Information can be given freely without specifics pertaining to your personal business. We all have a trade, product or niche we are in but some just don't understand, it's not that you don't want to help.

    The problem is, when you do help it seems like the questions go more and more in-depth. It's like they don't understand I want to help but I don't want you doing exactly what I am doing.

    Now for the items they want for free, you are correct stating some are rude if you don't just give it to them. I agree if you don't know someone, why would you just hand it to them, heck even the ones I do know don't get everything I have.

    I love to help others but sometimes afterwards I feel as if they tried to rape me. Or if I don't keep helping or keep giving them things that I somehow let them down.

    I continue to help, sometimes give away secrets, software or tools that I use.

    I guess to answer your question more directly, keep your stuff until you feel good about who you are sharing it with!

    Hmm.. Is that suppose to be you MDSurf? If we all could look at your past posts, we can see that almost every single one of your 80 posts are all questions. "change, Please guys answer my questions, change???"

    You know the funny thing is when it comes to the basic stuff it is all over the BHW site. Most, well some, just don't want to even work to find the information.

    There is also some cool shares on BHW that could make some of them a few dollars, twist it up and you have a nice business.

    I continue to help others, I really believe people in general are good and I want to see them succeed.

    Hey I feel like I know you now....CAN I HAVE YOUR AA LIST? LMAO :D

    Haha. I swear thats how it is. They dont even want to search google. People ask me, " how do you find article directory lists?" Wtf, you are doing SEO and you have yet to learn how to use google. Its good to ask questions but dumb questions like that is just a waste of time.

    Hey if your a hot chick, then ya for sure! We know each other Ill give you a big article directory list ;)

    That's a part of being in business buddy!

    No matter how much you discount your rates, some people will still make a stupid excuse to get it for free. The worst thing is you give something for the cheapest rate in town, and they come back to you for 6 months with a ton of questions.

    Can't do much for that. Just ignore the fuckers and move on.

    information can be free, ur methods are ur secret.

    i love it when u see , hey ill pay u $100 for ur method. or hey im struggling man i need ot know ur method, then u get the guy selling a service and offering 5 free or discounted reviews to people and the top 40 comments on the post are pls send me a review. i hate that.
    i mean on a fee based service i always skip the first page of the thread , i know its full of people asking for reviews, yes we need reviews, but if it is 5 only then why is the 6th 7th 8th , 40th bhatter still asking for a free review lol
