So how many times have you seen someone offer you a free trial of something or other, but to get started you need to provide a credit card number, or use your Paypal account to sign up.

A lot of services or products even ask that you pay ONLY $1 to start any sort of trial and act as if you are getting an incredible value.

But what they are really doing is getting your credit card number or PayPal account locked into their auto re-billing feature and hiding behind their real motive simply by telling you that it is for your convenience.

It is a well known fact that many people who offer products or services are making more money due simply to people forgetting to cancel these auto re-bills.

Now I'm not in any way speaking for all marketers. Many do in fact provide great value and are trying to make things easier, but it is also an overly abused marketing tactic to make the product or service owner a lot of extra recurring income.

You see a lot of unethical marketers know that most of the time you will forget about the trial and a few months later you will finally notice that you have been charged XX dollars every month. Guess who makes a pile of money that way. That's not cool man.

So it is something to watch out for when signing up to any trials of anything.

On a total flip side, here's an example of a guy who has an insanely good trial offer, but you don't have to give your credit card or Paypal account up front. It's just a free trial, because he believe it
works and is not hiding behind anything!

It's a no obligations 90 Day Free Trial of what's called the Smart Subscriber marketing system. His name is Ian and he's been an online marketer for over a decade and claims he will make you mon.ey through affi.liate comm.issions just to prove his service is worth paying for!

With no credit cards or Paypal account stuff upfront, I'd say that's a pretty rock solid and safe trial.
