Is it wrong to promote "Paid Surveys" & "Data Entry" programs?

    I've promoted both of these in the past and made good money. I've come up with a pretty diabolical twist using CL that I've hesitated to use because I'm wrestling with my own guilty conscience (we all know these programs are a scam). From my past experience with these type programs and my knowledge of CL I know I could make some good bank but I'm also doing well with some white hat stuff. The evil side of me is saying just do it and the good side of me is saying just do it :D Anyone have an opinion?

    Thanks,

    If given the chance would you sell rocks to people in the special Olympics? Your a salesman and its not your fault that people are ignorant about scams. It maybe a little unethical but you're a black hater and mostly what marketers do is not all justified because its purely about the money. Lets be honest how many of us actually market services and products that we believe in our hearts is the right thing that will solve all of the answers for the people we sell to? Think about it...

    i sometimes feel uneasy about some of the stuff i do but fuck it, i have to survive. Its a dog eat dog world, and when you look at it in perspective its really not that bad....

    bad is a bank lending money to a country to buy weapons to kill people they dont agree with, bad is selling crack, bad is robbing people and when you look at some of the tactics big companies use you will realise you dont get rich by being nice, nice doesnt OFTEN pay (imo) :)

    I "pass off" general information, not exact methods. I have bills to pay and people that I need to take care of. We've all seen what happens when great methods get "passed off" here. That being said CL is a freaking gold mine. I know no one wants to here it (again) but try to think outside the box. I've spent HOURS on CL just analyzing categories and coming up with ideas. I promote 100% digital products, no cpa and my average commission is over $30 per sale. I convert at a little more than 3% or 3 out 100 hops. Do the math...not bad heh? The #1 most important key to success on CL is getting your ads to stick. If you can figure that out you'll make bank. I post manually and my stick rate is close to 100% if not 100%. And if your wondering how I do this please realize it didn't happen overnight. It took me a LONG time to get to this point and I'm still learning. I still consider myself to be somewhat of a CL noob.

    PS: Thanks for your input on my original question. My mind is still not made up. I'm thinking I don't really have to go that route to be honest.
