I stumble upon a website call Login2 which seems to help others gain FREE access to any website. Basically users just have to enter the URL or site name which requires signing up for access. An id with password will be provided. Users can use the id and password provided to gain access to the site. If the id and password is not valid, users can request for alternative pair of id and password. I did try out couple of times on a particular website but it doesn’t seem to work. Perhaps I’m just not lucky. This might not be such a great idea for providing ids and passwords for FREE access, but the intention or reasons behind is quite interesting.
So why would anybody want an easy free access into site that requires login id and password? Well, first of all singing up for an account can be troublesome and time consuming. You are required to fill up particular details and wait for a verification email before you are allowed to gain access to the site. It is understandable to have such a process before accessing a website. But if you found yourself repeating the same process each time trying to access a website that seems interesting, it can be annoying. Users should be given a temporally access before deciding if we should sign up for an account. If we don’t like what we saw, just leave. No string attached. What I hate most is after all the trouble filling up the details and verifying the email, the site turns out to be a big disappointment.
Usually website owners should be the one to provide temporally access using a common id and password. It seems like Login2 is able to see the demand of this service and trying to provide it. Unfortunately the method provided might not work smoothly. If you are able to come out with a better way or solution to enable users gain temporally access to websites before signing up, you might have yourself a money making opportunity.
P/S: Blog or website that provides detail review or preview for other sites is mainly about giving out information about what it is like inside a particular site after signing in. It serves the same purpose of letting users understand what they are signing up for. It helps users save time and the trouble of signing up for an account.

Just like the old traditional offline business, there are several things that we need to consider before making any decision. Either it is online or offline business, we are here to make money. There are a lot of ways to make money online and offline. But the question is which money making opportunities is the best. When it comes to the best way to make money, maximum profit is the most important criteria that we consider. In other words the best money making opportunities is the one that makes the most money. We all want to make as much money as we can but there are three things we need to consider in the process of doing so. Time, effort and money are the big three investments that require careful and balance management in order to achieve profit in any business. Remember that profit is not guarantee even with perfect investments. But you will definitely lose money without proper management on these investments.
We are all given that much of time only. We can’t increase the time but we sure can make full use of the time we have. Effort relates closely to our ability. Professional and people with talent are able to produce great results with minimal effort. Money or funds allows you to readjust the time and effort. You can reduce or save time and effort by hiring others to do the work or purchase tools to help improve efficiency. Most businesses at startup usually have limited money or funds. Thus they need to put in more time and effort in order to make more money which eventually will be used to reinvest into the business.
A successfully business usually means using minimal time, effort and money to produce results which customers are willing to pay for. Thus it is very important to determine the buying power of your customers. Customers love to have great products and top services. But they won’t pay for it if they can’t afford them. So whenever you come out with a product or service which you like to sell just set the price above the minimal range that you won’t lose money. And there is no maximum price range as long as customers are willing to pay for it.
P/S: The price of the product or service does not determine by the time, effort and money that you invested. It is basically set by the demand of the market. Of cause you can still set the price accordingly but nothing matters if customers don’t buy it.
