Does it bother you that everything is for "free"?


As we all know, nothing is for free. We are sophisticated to know that companies do this for the advertising and to up-sell. However, doesn't this created a facade of a society. It's an intricate game we all play and actually, a game that small businesses can't really afford to play. I'm thinking this one concept does more to destroy small business than any other aspect of society.

    A.D, I couldn't agree more! A young man came to my door offering a "free" carpet cleaning. After a long talk, I found they were selling vacuum cleaners. It really IS more like a con. I feel more comfortable paying up front -in honest transactions .

    Point is very well taken. We've had an ed. software business on the web since 1995, and google's analytics program with adsense is very helpful. Our company never has made any money, so I often wonder if a presence is illusionary. Will read ur hubs!
