Is this more recycled crap or not?

I know that there has been almost no activity on this site for some time but I plead guilty to being busy.

I was setting up a Travel site which I used a as a Beta test while I traveled in Europe for the month of September 2006. This took me about 8 months to get how I wanted it and now I have to move it to another host before I can release it to the world.

Anyway, this project has stopped me in lots of other things I was doing, including writing about how to make money online. Or exposing the scams. There are "lots" of scams out there.

I personally refuse to entertain the idea of paying more than around $200 for any product online. My reasoning is that if I buy a digital product the actual cost for the product is probably less than $500 total regardless of how many are sold.

So, if they are asking $1,000 for a product based on how much you'll make (probably not) or the sum of all the products in the package (yeah, right) or some other made up number I don't give a sh#@#$ and I won't pay. Do I miss out? Maybe, maybe not. I sure as hell don't lose money on those deals.

I also refuse to join any membership site which costs me money every month, I just don't see the value in them for me. I do for the "guru", permanent income stream, lovely.

Back to the purpose of this post. I just bought the ProjectX package and I did this because I want to add Affiliate marketing into my new site and I want it to work properly. By properly I mean make money.

My financial goals are actually pretty simple, I want a passive income of $60,000 per year. I want to retire from full time work and have my partner also be able to be with me. I want to be able to do more of that travel that we just completed 'cause it was fantastic (see the blog on my site for the adventure) and I don't want to be tied down to any particular place when I want to work. Is that too much to ask? I don't think so and I am sure that there are many of you who would like a similar lifestyle.

On initial reading I am pretty impressed with the information as presented but as always the proof of the pudding is in the eating, or in this case in the cash flow. This site is the reporting site, not the sales site. Yes, I did put a link to the sales site here but if you can't see what I am talking about this won't make any sense to you at all will it?

Now I am not going to leak the contents of the package to you because that wouldn't be fair to the other people who actually buy the package or to Chris who wrote it.

I have several other Affiliate "How to" ebooks in my eLibrary which I have actually read and attempted to put into action with little result and much frustration so I wasn't initially interested in buying another but this looked different enough to be of major interest.

So, more report later when some results are in.

::UPDATE:: I decided that this blog wasn't the correct place for this type of material so I have duplicated it and will continue the reports on my other blog, Marketing Truths, this link opens in a new window so you won't lose this rubbish.
