How to make money the right way.
These past few days, I have been observing the ebb and flow of topics, blogs, and comments here at WA.
Suddenly, it came to me: I will I teach other members on how to make money the right way.
Then came an urgent thought: Are we here at WA to help or sell to the community?
Hmmm. Tricky question at best isn't it? To answer this I look to myself first.
I joined WA because I believe in what it stands for, a COMMUNITY primarily built to HELP internet entrepreneurs and as a support system for them.
I have read numerous times of other members in this community offering to newbies "bonuses" for a premium upgrade that are not in effect theirs to offer. We all know that the $19 premium membership offer is a regular discount from Kyle and Carson (the owners) graciously give for the first month to ALL newbies, and it is NOT from any WA member.
I just find it unethical and misleading to claim and offer a "bonus" that in reality the newbie is already entitled to. It goes CONTRARY to why we are here at WA, and that is to learn and to help.
My take on this is simple, I have been a businessman for several years now and one thing we value in any transaction is TRANSPARENCY. We all want to make money, but do it in an ETHICAL and HONEST manner.
If you would like to sell to any WA member go ahead, just let them know that you are indeed offering a product or service and explain HONESTLY all the details. No pressure. Let the person decide.
And for heaven's sake do not be "sneaky" anymore by offering "bonuses" and "discounted yearly upgrades" that are NOT yours to offer in the first place because the newbie and premium member is ALREADY ENTITLED TO IT with or without you.
We can help WA by being vigilant, whenever we see unethical practices being done we should highlight it and report the member at once.
If you want to stay long in any kind of business, INTEGRITY is the most important thing.
Let us keep WA "sneaky free" and keep it what it is:
A fun place to LEARN and HELP other members.
