Welcome to my Paid Social Media Jobs review. Here I will be taking a look at Paid Social Media Jobs to see whether it’s really worth signing up for…
Product Name: Paid Social Media Jobs
Owners: Annie Jones
Overall Ranking: OK
What their Website Claims
Well, the first thing that will grab your attention on their website is this dramatic headline:
Okay, sounds pretty good to me. Actually, that does sound somewhat realistic. It’s perfectly reasonable to get paid to look after the social media accounts of businesses. My only query at this point is just how easy it is to get these jobs.
Anyway, below that headline we have a video:
Well, that video is from a major news network, so it must be true, right?
Anyway, below that is the supposedly true story of Annie Jones. She tells us how it takes her just a short amount of time every day to reply to messages on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and then schedule posts for the day. This all seems perfectly reasonable to me, because I know all that is possible. My only issue right now is how easy it is to get companies to pay you to do this.
By the way, there is also a pop-up that keeps telling me about a free training webinar. It keeps popping up all the time and it’s really annoying!
Okay, but carrying on through the main body of text on the site, it’s just continuing on her story about how she really needed money and then a friend told her about earning money from social media.
Then we have this image showing how much she earns per client and how much that earned her in total over a 6 month period:
How do we know those numbers are real? That image was probably just put together in Photoshop. There is also the following image showing her PayPal balance:
Again, it would be extremely easy to fake that in Photoshop.
But there is also an image showing a typical list of jobs and the amount they are paying. Notice how it is colored grey to make it look serious and work-like:
Well, those amounts do look pretty good. If that is a genuine screenshot of what it looks like inside PaidSocialMediaJobs.com, then that’s quite convenient to have them all listed there in one place, rather than having to go searching for them yourself.
However, my issue here is that the buttons next to it say “Apply”. So presumably that means you apply for that job, which doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily get it. You could spend a lot of time just applying for the same jobs that many other people are also applying for. But to be fair, that’s no different to a standard jobs market. I’m just trying to be realistic, you will probably spend more time applying for jobs than actually doing any jobs.
Anyway, at the bottom of the page is a form to enter your email address to find out more information:
So I’m going to enter a fake email address to see what lies beyond…
On the 2nd page there is just more information trying to convince you to join by emphasizing how much money you can earn. It’s all very eye-catching and looks wonderful. Wouldn’t it be great if it was all as easy as they are claiming it is…
How to Tell if Something is a Scam
When you have seen as many “make money online” scams as I have, you learn how to spot them easily. You see, there are a bunch of signs that can easily indicate that it might be a scam. There are also a few signs that can indicate that it might be genuine. The trick is to look out for these positive and negative signs, then try to weigh up what the chances are of it being a scam.
For more information about how to spot a scam, you can read my article about it here.
But if you are still interested in Paid Social Media Jobs, you can follow me as I assess it against these positive and negative criteria…
What factors would indicate that it is genuine?
- Does it sound realistic? – I’m not sure. On the one hand, it sounds totally realistic that companies would pay other people to do their social media stuff for them. On the other hand, just how easy is it to get these jobs, and do they all pay well?
- Do they admit that it will require work? – Yes, they are saying these are genuine social media jobs, so you will have to actually do the work. They don’t seem to be claiming the work is easier than it is. The only issue I have here is that it might take more time and effort to actually apply for the jobs, and you might not get them.
- Is there a genuine video from the owner? – No. Although there is a video from a mainstream news channel, the product owner is not in that video and there are no other videos on the site.
- Can you take a look inside? – Well, there was an image supposedly showing a listing of jobs within the system once you are a member. Whether this image was real or a true reflection is another matter.
- Is there a free trial? – No. If you want to try it you will have to pay the money.
Positive signs score: 35%
What factors would indicate that it is a scam?
- Does it sound too good to be true? – A bit. I’m in two minds about this point. On the one hand, I can totally imagine getting paid to run social media campaigns for businesses. On the other hand, is everyone who signs up to this going to make the kind of money they are talking about?
- Do they promise you’ll get rich fast? – No, they say you can make $700 per week, which is not an insane amount of money to earn. It’s not like they are saying you will become a millionaire overnight.
- Are they secretive about how the money is made? – No, they are totally up-front about being paid to do social media for businesses.
- Are they claiming it has never been seen before? – Not really.
- Do they claim it doesn’t require work? – No, they don’t claim this.
Negative signs score: 15%
What are other people saying?
Is Paid Social Media Jobs a Scam?
So, as you saw, I took a look at the signs that could indicate that it is genuine, and came up with a score based on that. Then I did the same for the negative signs. Then I combined these two scores into an average score, which gives us an overall rating of whether or not it is likely to be a scam.
60% chance of being a scam
Probably not worth trying
