First of all, this program teaches you a legal way to turn some spare money and postage into perhaps thousands of dollars. The success of this program depends on you, and should not necessarily be considered a "get-rich-quick" scheme. Also important to point out is that this is not a scam, and it is PERFECTLY LEGAL according to Title 18 (Section 1302 and 1341) of the Postal Lottery laws. If you have any concerns or doubts, feel free to contact the United States Postal Service at 1-800-725-2161.

Lastly, before we get started, remember to save this information or print it out immediately so you can refer back to it as necessary. To ensure maximum success, make sure to FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS EXACTLY AS STATED.

Now, all you need for this program is 6 one-dollar bills, 6 postage stamps, 6 envelopes, and 6 pieces of paper. In addition, this requires some effort from you, as well as honesty and integrity. People all over the world can take advantage of this opportunity as long as everyone plays fair. The only people to lose out, which is always a possibility in business, are the ones who exert minimal effort.

Well, are you ready to join the business of Mailing Lists? That's right -- according to the law, this is considered a service. And, to begin your little business, you need to only make a small investment of money and time.

Basically, what you will need to do to begin is send a one-dollar bill to the six names listed below and ask to be added to their mailing list. Since you are sending payment, the receiver will fulfill his or her duty by adding your name to their list. Hence, they are providing a service to you for which you paid one dollar. Next, you will post an article similar to this where your name will actually be on the list of six names. You can post to newsgroups, advertise to friends and family, and e-mail people you know regarding this service. However, keep in mind that mass, unsolicited e-mail (SPAM) is strictly prohibited. Then, you wait for normal, everyday people like yourself to read the message, and if they decide to give the program a try, you should also receive a dollar from each person in the mail. You must next keep a listing of all the names and addresses you receive so as to complete your duty.

First, obtain six pieces of paper and write the following on each: "Please add me to your mailing list." Also make sure to neatly print your name and address on each piece. Then, you must wrap a dollar bill in each piece of paper. Now you can insert each of the six wrapped dollars into its own envelope. You may prefer to use a thicker paper or darker paper so the dollar bill will not be visible through the envelope to prevent thievery. So, you should now have six sealed envelopes with one dollar in each, plus a piece of paper stating your name and address, asking each person to add you to their mailing list. Finally, you mail a completed, stamped envelope to each of the following addresses: 1) Wit Wichaidit 10912 Broad Green Terrace Potomac, MD 20854 2) Mike Schude 893 S. Roanoke Gilbert, AZ 85296 3) David Freeman 11045 Harbour Springs Circle Boca Raton, FL 33428 4) JL Miller 1250 Berryhill Road #1-F Milton, FL 32570 5) J. Albarran P.O. Box 2023 Salinas, CA 93902 6) Farhan Khalid 551 Grimes Avenue Naperville, IL 60565

At this point, you are ready to compose a revised list of names and addresses to whom others will send their money if they choose to try this program from your very own posting. All you really have to do is take the list you see above, delete the first name, move each name up one spot, and add your name and address as number 6. Therefore, number 2 would become number 1, number 3 would become number 2, and so on. After you create your own article like this one, other people would follow the same steps and your name would thus move up one spot.

You may be wondering right now how you actually make money, considering that you've just spent several dollars. Well, this step is the heart of the program. What you'll need to do is take this article or re-write a similar one, make any changes you need to (i.e. make your name/address number 6 in the list), and then post the article to at least 200 newsgroups. It will take some effort, but it's not really that difficult. In fact, you can copy and paste this article into a blank Notepad file and edit it as necessary. You can save the file in .txt format, and then use copy & paste to transfer it to newsgroup postings. Others will read your posting and give it a try, which means you make money. When they perform the same steps as you do with creating a similar posting, your name will still be on the list (but up one spot), so you will still receive money from whomever your customers advertise to. You can also tell friends about this program and send e-mail to people you know, but newsgroups are recommended. There are supposedly over 30,000 groups, and the number of people using the Internet continues to grow. Overall, the more marketing effort you put in, the more money you can make. Just make sure to follow the directions exactly and be truthful and fair.

If you think about it, this mailing list business does not require a large investment, but it definitely has the potential to generate a good amount of money. You do your part by sending money -- only $6 in cash, which is less than some people spend on lunch -- and make sure to send to the correct addresses. Then, you post your program offer explaining how this works and such. If you post to a couple hundred newsgroups, and a few people who read each newsgroup give this a try, you can earn a few hundred dollars right there. Assuming that they follow the steps exactly, they will also post their own article to start their mailing list business. On their list of addresses, your name should still be on there, gradually moving up one spot, and you will receive $1 from each of their customers. So, it really can multiply to a hefty sum of cash, all by running your simple mailing list business from the comfort of your own home. Again, since you are providing a service, remember to keep track of all names and addresses you receive with the one-dollar bill from different people. One suggestion is to set up a database which you can use to record each person's name and address, and then use a separate table to keep track of where you have advertised your mailing list business. Just use whatever method works best for you, and remain honest and follow the directions. In addition, you will have an actual mailing list that you can try to sell -- bonus revenue.

That's all there really is to starting your own business of this type. It is legal, and you can make a decent amount of money as long as you put in the effort and time. Remember to save or print this information and refer back to it as needed. You may even want to read this over a couple of times before giving it a try, but you don't have much to lose. People read this type of stuff every day, and there are plenty of people out there just as curious as you are. Do the math and you will see that this is not a scam nor a waste of time. This program really works!

Here are directions for posting to a newsgroup:

1) After completing the three major steps of this program, you should already have a text file with your very own informative article about this mailing list business. Make sure that it includes all necessary information, such as the list of six names and addresses with your own as number 6. Also, it would be advisable to proofread it to ensure that all the information is accurate and well-written.

2) Then, you can use various search engines to find places to post: online forums, message boards, chat sites, discussions. Recall that the more you advertise, the better for you. At least aim for 200 newsgroups. Use any and all resources to spread the message about this mailing list business opportunity within reasonable bounds. Also, it will be a good idea to keep track of where you have advertised, as mentioned earlier, in order to prevent over-marketing in one spot.

3) Lastly, since you know where to advertise, you can simply highlight and copy the information from your text file and paste it into the appropriate area. As you get used to doing this, you will become faster. Furthermore, you don't have to worry about posting to 200 places all at one time. Since this is your own business, you may want to aim for posting to 20 places a week and see how things go after a few months. Maybe then you can try 25-30 new postings per week for a couple more months. As stated, the more effort you put in, the more money you can make.
