A website is just a tool, nothing else.

You could also open a shop in the real world.

You think it would automatically generate business if you open the front door?


What these people do is hook up with a company that sells "ready to go" websites. The idea is that your website contains essentially nothing of real value (or generated by the company that sells the websites) and it contains a bunch of links to other business websites. You get a referral fee for a clicked link.

Of course, getting paid through the complex rules is sometimes hard and does not exactly bring a windfall.

What makes these websites more onerous is that they often contain an MLM business... get "residuals" from others who sign up. And, like the site I deleted, they often contain "businesses" like read email or get paid to surf, both of which are scams, pure and simple.

Can kindly be more in details so that it much easy for ppl here to answer... :wink:


In addition to the other comments already made by others, I would have to say you might try impressing others by at least trying to write English. As far as being a Singaporean, did you bother to read the sites URL before posting? It says "Expats" so why would you expect us to be Singaporean? Guess you are using the same reasoning for your business huh........... :roll:

So far, many questions have been asked about websites, SEO, ecommerce and online business in this thread.

But nothing really specific has been asked.

I design websites, do webmastering, set up complete ecommerce websites for individuals and small businesses, and help my clients market their businesses online.

So what do you want to know exactly?

I agree with a previous post that it is not wise to go for ready-made online businesses, where you pay for, and they provide you with, THEIR website and THEIR system.

After paying to join THEIR business, you then have to go around hard-selling THEIR business to YOUR contacts and friends, annoying the hell out of YOUR contacts and friends. And getting a reputation as a scammer.

Soon, you'll find that not everyone is a fool like you and will flatly NOT buy from you and will even unscrupulously avoid you at all costs.

Paid-to-surf, paid-to-click, paid-to-email, paid-to-take-surveys, and such-like are all big-time SCAMS, period. They are even worse than the ready-made MLM-type websites. Save your money. Avoid them like the plague.

FYI, I know someone who lost several thousand S$ in one of these paid-to-surf scams not very long ago. The site just disappeared overnight.

A good rule of thumb is, if something seems a little shady, or you feel a little uneasy about it, or if you think you may have to really pester your friends to buy it, then don't go into it. Why take the risk?

The best is to have your own online business.

Start off with deciding on a product or service you are passionate about. Each one of us is good at SOMEthing.

Do your research and sell something that provides a solution / solves a problem / fulfills a need for your market .

And get your own site, so you have full control over it.

Marketing your online business is another thing. It is an ongoing, longterm, hands-on activity. You have to be prepared to put in the work.

But the rewards are great, and very satisfying.
