How many times have you seen an ad claiming you can make anywhere from $5 to $25 per email you process? They tell you that you can process as many emails per day as you want, and earn unlimited amounts of money.
What they don't tell you is that the emails you're sending out are actually ads, and that people have to buy what you're offering in these ads in order for you to get paid. If you notice some, if not all of them request a one time non refundable fee. You'll also notice that this fee is usually the same amount that you will be paid to process emails with them. Do you see? The person who sent out that email only makes their money if you sign up to earn money by processing emails, and send them your registration fee. So instead of you making $25 for EVERY email you send out, you only make that money if someone responds to your email ad, and pays you. This means you'd probably have to send out anywhere from 50 to 100 ads or more, to get just one person who's interested and actually pays.
So now, as you can see, it's not as easy to make money this way as they would have you believe. You really have to work for that one $25 payment. If you've tried to make money online with anything, I'm sure you know how time consuming and expensive it can get placing ads. There are some free advertising methods that work ok, but for the most part in order to make money online, or anywhere, you have to spend money (at least a little of it) first.
If you really want to make money online by sending emails from home, you should look for a program that is free to start. At least then you can see if it's something that works for you. Lots of people spend money to sign up with certain programs, only to find out they have to spend more money once they're in. Or they pay their fees and find out it's not as easy to make money as they were lead to believe. With any business there's going to be extra costs, advertising is a big one, but these costs don't have to be great. It does take some trail and error to figure out what works for you, but once you do, you'll always have that knowledge, and be able to reapply it over and over again to keep making money.
