    I see all these posts on wickedfire and the other forums for like "article submissions for $3" or "i'll write you articles for $2 each" or whatever. And I can't help but think, for the amount of time it takes to do that, there's no way $2 or $3 is a good amount of money.

    So do these people live in India where $3 is like a few days' wage, and these people are balling outta control when they get two article orders in a day and make $6?

    I can't understand how some of this stuff could be profitable otherwise.

    There are only two other scenarios I can think of:

    1. It's some guy in America but he's doing this on a HUGE scale and outsourcing all the work and keeping the difference. So he gets $3 per article but pays some Indian $2 to do it, so he makes $1. Ok, so he'd have to do that like 100-200 times per day in order to make a decent living, and I doubt he's getting that much work from the IM forums.

    2. It's some guy with a normal corporate job who is just bored and does IM shit for extra beer money ($10-15 per week)

    :dunno:

    indian marketers are like nigerian scammers but they're more smart about it

    they sell you links to forged page rank sites with falsified traffic figures

    they copy articles from somewhere else and and spin them

    they tell you they submit your site to best directories but end up using progs to mass submit to shitty bad neighbor sites, same goes with links, articles, and bookmarks

    and they are smart enough to charge you something cheap that wouldnt make you think twice about disputing because $2 or $3 isnt worth your time filling out a dispute form on paypal.

    if you want shit done do it yourself or get specific reports from these dudes and pay them a premium for it because its worth it.

    Pretty much...

    Although, I have had one great experience with a girl from the Philippines. And she's now my full time VA and get's paid very well for it. But this chick gets shit done, so it's worth it.

    That makes sense.

    I do all my own shit by myself, especially article writing because most native English speakers can't even write better than I can, and I guarantee you someone in India certainly won't be able to, especially not for $3 per article :rofl:

    In this articles we learning how do you making the money onlines. I have discovering the secret and I now made $8274.28 per day. First is you need...

    :rofl:

    Virtual Assistant...

    She does everything I don't want to do. Including article writing, submitting, link building, etc..

    She even responds to my help desk inquiries :wiggle:
