Internet Marketing 101

How many times has someone offered you a free trial of something or other, but to get started
you need to provide a credit card number, or use your Paypal account to sign up. Free no longer means free it would seem.

A lot of services or products even ask that you pay ONLY $1 to start any sort of trial and act as if you
are getting an incredible value.  NOT!

It is a well known fact that many people who offer products or services are making more money due to people simply forgetting to cancel these auto re-bills.
