    Hi Guys

    Would you pay £4 for a book about how to generate income streams from the internet? I ask because that's roughly the price of a pint of beer. When you look at it that way, how come you would pay it for a pint, yet not pay for something which potentially could be way more valuable?

    No. If the information was valuable, it would be worth a lot more than £4. The fact it's only £4 means it's some bullshit information put together by someone who doesn't know what he's talking about.

    LOL

    There are plenty out there that flood the likes of Warrior forum and Click bank rubbish, most of the time things are priced like that because its too small of an amount for anyone to complain about and ask for refunds on.

    There is very little information out there that cant be read somewhere for free, the only difference between these crappy little books is that they put all the info in one place with out the need for someone to search for it.

    The only people that would buy it are those naive or inexperienced.......much like those that write them .

    Anyone looking to write a book telling others how to make money (...from writing a book) need their head testing! Equally, those buying the book do too!

    This is the perception of value argument, and it's an interesting point. If it's only £4, it can't be any good, I see what you're saying.

    Anyone who is very successful making money from websites is highly unlikely to write an online book and tell everyone else how to do it for £4....

    Come on Doug, write a book and tell us how to do it for £4 ;)

    It seems people would write of £4 as being too cheap, and therefore can't be any good.

    How many people here buy business books online? What was the last one you read that was any good? How much are you prepared to spend in learning new techniques, or do you just look everything up on the internet yourself for free?

    Thanks

    I've always found forums to be the best places to learn personally

    Reading a book seems too daunting

    I just finished all the Game of Thrones books though, but they were audiobooks :p

    Uh, what?

    http://www.acorndomains.co.uk/busin...passive-income-techniques-most-effective.html

    I read a lot of business improvement, strategy and marketing books, but only from subject matter experts with real stories to share.

    You might well earn a few quid from writing one, there are a lot of gullible souls out there.

    But with the greatest respect, I get the feeling that it would possibly fall under my earlier categorisation :D

    I'm starting to think Accelerator runs an extremely popular network of sites and is extremely profitable. I'm going to assume the threads he posts and the sites in his signature are just there to troll us all whilst he basks in the glory of his success from his Yacht in the Monaco harbour.

    Do you reckon he's subtly adding in keywords and phrases sending high quality traffic to his billion dollar businesses? :D

    I'm not quite sure what his end game his. I can only assume he's getting us all to think he's a bit of a whopper and once he succeeds in that he's going to post a selfie from his yacht surrounded by money, women and the finest champagne.
