Original subject line: How To Recognize Real Online Marketing Opportunity

[Moderator comment: please read the following reply to learn why this kind of post is unacceptable and will be deleted.]

Hey there people,

I guess there are not only sharks in MLM industry surfing on this forum but also beginers whose need some start guide.

So I made this article to help people interested in making money online which dont have money for big investments.

There are plenty of online-money-making-opportunities and many of them really works but not the exact way they say.
Better said there are few cathes (often cost much more money that would one expect).
Reason why I made this topic is becouse I was fixing this problem myself just a few months ago and
I want to help others to reach their goals.

"Choosing the right opportunity is crutial fact of success or fail"

Interesting in making money online but not sure how to begin?
This article will help you choose the right opportunity.

Welcome to the forum -- but a word of advice to you and any others wanting to promote your business opportunities in this kind of way, okay?

I'm allowing your post to stay, and making it sticky as a warning to anyone with the same intentions. View this as an example of what NOT to do.

I'm leaving your sig file intact as a trade-off for using your post as an example.

There's a saying in the world of stocks and shares: "pump and dump".

It refers to the practice by unscrupulous stock promoters of "pumping up" a poor performing stock in order to get people to buy it, before the promoter "dumps" his or her holdings of that stock at the artificially-inflated price, leaving buyers with a worthless purchase.

In the world of forum marketing, there's a saying: "pump and jump".

It refers to the practice by unscrupulous Internet marketers of "pumping up" their business opportunities by posting on forums (like this one) with offers of free "advice" or tools to help them improve their business results or avoid hidden booby traps, then "jumping" them to another site that's a blatant promotion of their own business opportunity.

Sorry, folks, but this forum is NOT just another "happy hunting ground" for prospects for your business opportunity.

Posting articles that pretend to be serious offers of helpful advice -- articles with little or no genuine substance, just an excuse to promote a link in your signature file with a promise of a worthwhile benefit -- then taking them off to a self-serving promotional site for a business opportunity, is not acceptable behavior on these forums.

Such posts will be deleted. Repeated attempts, or multiple postings, will get you banned.

Okay... warning over. :D

I'm new here but THANK YOU for posting this warning as I have posted (about this very same thing) in and on other forums, including Facebook! It is a true annoyance. :x
