For many decades there has been a whole sub-culture here in the U.S.A. of people who make some money by getting involved with and mailing out copies of various chain letter types of money making programs. Some of these programs sound very appealing and are very well written, and other people read the letters and choose to get involved.
These fascinating and tempting mail-order, money making programs were probably born by their predecessors which were the moronic, idiotic, superstitious chain letters that had nothing to do with money or commerce, they simply “claimed” that if you sent out copies you would have good luck, but if you didn’t you might die. How ridiculous!
Now, it is documented that many decades ago, a church group needed to raise money, so they mailed out letters requesting people to each donate a dime, and also make three copies of the letter, then send those letters out to three friends. The church group ended up collecting $6,000.
For at least fifty years now, many people here in the U.S.A. have seen, and sometimes participated in money-making letters, flyers, chain letters, et cetera. Sometimes they are well-written, sometimes they sound mediocre, and others are completely stupid!
A program might involve a new participant to send some money to a handful of other participants, after which they
are provided with a camera ready copy of the same flyer with their name and address listed on it. The new participant then makes many copies, buys a bunch of stamps
and envelopes, and can even buy a mailing list of opportunity seekers usually on peel and stick labels. So, you must spend some money to begin the process of mailing out letters.
People who enjoy gambling and/or buying lottery tickets, do not usually mind spending some money on printing, postage, envelopes, and such, because it requires a “risk-taker” or “gambler” mentality. Someone who is extremely frugal, or outright cheap, will never try something like this. God forbid they should waste or lose a few dollars. (By the way, those people all have relatives who will enjoy spending money like drunken pirates after their funerals!)
These days, the money making mail order programs, as they are commonly called, are seemingly logical and workable. Some require the participant to send gifts to the others on the letter (and who says YOU can’t give a gift to someone?) while others claim that the money you send is to buy information, a printed report, a booklet, or maybe a subscription to something. Some programs tell you that you’re buying a mailing list of “opportunity seekers,” to whom you can mail letters of the programs that you’re promoting.
You will want to have an initial budget of at least one hundred dollars to try something like this. After you start mailing out letters, other people will mail you their money making offers, and you will quickly get listed on a mailing list, and your mailbox will soon get flooded with pieces of mail containing many other money making opportunities. If any of those appeal to you, then you might choose to join and try some of them, it’s all up to you. For anyone who is lonely or bored, they might especially enjoy getting flooded with letters!
Another benefit of all this mail that you will begin receiving is that it will provide you with plenty of names and addresses of many other people who attempt to make money at this type of activity. I say “attempt” because there are no guarantees. A mail order money making program might work and it might not. You might make a little money on one, or maybe a lot of money, or maybe no money at all. When you get all these letters containing the names and addresses of others who enjoy this sort of hobby, you can turn around and send copies of your program to them, without having to buy or rent a mailing list.
Some of these mailing programs have a monitor, who usually monitors and makes sure that no one cheats, and the monitor is usually the one who mails a nice, clean, camera-ready copy to new participants with their name and address printed on the letter, in the same font and size as the other names, for a professional look. Others instruct you to delete the person in either the top or bottom position, move everyone up or down one spot, and then put your name and address on the list. These programs end up looking very sloppy, because many people do not do a nice, neat job of making the necessary changes.
Sometimes a mail program has you send the money to the monitor, who forwards the funds to the other participants, and sometimes you mail the money directly to each person. It seems that the most popular and most successful programs are the ones that do have a monitor, but that also have you sending the money to each of the participants directly.
If you think you might enjoy trying this sort of money-making idea, and you live within the United States, then Have a Look at this Make Money through the Mail offer!
Take a chance if you’re tempted, you might have fun and make a few dollars, or maybe much more, and if you don’t, you will at least have a few laughs. Never do something like this with money that you cannot afford to lose, just as when you go to a casino or horse track, because there is a certain amount of risk involved.
Thanks & Many Blessings!
