their site I found a very frightening statistic "over 83.8 percent of all the "money

gimmicks. Many are professionally written sales pages, and "sound" irresistible, only out
to get your money. RESIST AND IGNORE.

lot of research before you jump in and start building a website. Find out if there is even
enough interest/traffic to justify promoting your selected Niche. 3,000+ searches per
month minimum to be profitable. If not, find another Niche.
