The Best and Worst of the “Make Money Online” Sites
Wealthy Affiliate is an internet marketing community which features the best training that you are likely to find anywhere online. It is led by Kyle & Carson, two experienced internet marketers who have spent more than 10 years earning money online.
Why is it so great?
Where do I start?! There are so many great reasons to be part of Wealthy Affiliate. The two main benefits that stand out though are the superb step-by-step training and the awesome helpful community. You will never be stuck. If you are serious about building an online income, the Free Membership gives a you the option to try it out completely risk-free.
Profit Bank By Millionaire Society
Profit Bank By Millionaire Society is the scammiest “make money online” site I’ve come across so far. They claim that their push-button software can earn you over $1,000 per day! I hate to be the one to say it, but if you fall for their sales page then you really are gullible.
Why is it so bad?
The Profit Bank sales video is so full of bullshit I don’t even know where to start! When I watched it, it set off all my scam alarm bells in my head. It really does tick all the boxes for a scam. Everything from how easy they claim it is (just click one button) through to how much they say you can earn…
At first glance, this looks like a dream come true. No need to have a website, sell any products, or do anything much at all really. All you need to do is drive traffic to a particular website and all the selling will be done for you. Sounds great doesn’t it?
After you have paid the initial fee of $49, you will be hit by a HUGE upsell payment of $1997 plus $99 per month in order to make all this work. A lot of people just don’t have that kind of spare money, so this kind of trick is unforgivable. Stay away.
Legit Online Jobs
Legit Online Jobs has been around for many years (in internet marketing terms). While the amount they claim you can earn is not quite as high as Profit Bank, it is certainly high enough to make me question it. But I think they have deliberately kept that claim not too high so as to not appear too scammy.
What’s so bad about it?
The title of it is totally misleading. It makes it sound like you will be finding out about real jobs that you can do online. That is one big lie, because what they are actually going to show you is how to make money from listing affiliate products on Pay Per Click advertising networks. Of course it’s true that you can earn a lot of money doing that, but it’s also possible to LOSE a lot of money doing it. This is why Legit Online Jobs is dangerous and should be avoided…
Make Money with Google
This is a scam where she claims she will create a 300-page website for you. This website will be full of adverts that will earn you money from Google Adsense and ClickBank. Her website looks like it was created in the 1990s, is full of keyword stuffing, and talks about a technique that probably hasn’t worked for several years now.
Why is it bad?
These types of pre-created websites generally don’t rank very well in Google these days. Google is too wise to it now, and the best way to get on the front page of Google is to create genuinely good content that is frequently updated and which engages readers and helps them.
George Brown has clearly become desperate in his attempts to get rich by scamming gullible people. While the original technique may have worked for him a long time ago, with Google much cleverer these days it is no longer relevant.
Why is it so bad?
The main training shows you how to quickly set up little niche websites that target low competition keywords. The idea is: you are supposed to quickly set many of these up and then pretty much just forget about them. They will then earn money for you without you needing to do much more to them.
The problem is: Google hates little websites like that. it much prefers big websites with lots of regular content on them…
Let me tell you this: when something calls itself “Millionaire Society”, you should run the other way as fast as you can. It’s quite possible that the people who run this scheme are only millionaires because they’ve managed to convince enough gullible people to part with $97 per month to join.
Why is it bad?
They claim they that you can earn $30 per hour from each “done for you” website, and that you will be able to set up 100 of these, therefore making yourself rich. Now, we all know that Google (as well as web users) like well-written genuine websites created by real people, not auto-generated sites like these. Also, their sales page is so full of contradictions it really makes me angry…
Moms Making Six Figures
Moms Making Six Figures is an online club for stay-at-home moms who want financial freedom. Their website is full of positive vibes and smiley women who can’t wait to tell you how much this has changed their lives! Unfortunately, they don’t actually tell you what Moms Making Six Figures helped them do exactly.
Why is it bad?
It seems a bit like a pyramid scheme to me. The site says that they sell “consumer products”, but they don’t actually say what these products are. So I suspect the main focus of the group is to try to persuade others to join the group. I could be wrong about this though…
Wouldn’t it be great to be given a last minute heads up every time a company’s stock is just about to dramatically increase in price? Well, this is exactly what Penny Stock Sniper claims to offer. He finds the best stock, you invest, you earn lots of money.
But it doesn’t quite work like that…
It seems that what actually happens is that the guy buys some stock, tells people to also buy stock, this causes the stock prices to increase because people have suddenly started buying it, and then he makes some money. So you are helping him earn money from the stocks, not the other way around.
Get Paid Taking Pictures
I was only a short time into the video on the sales page when I realized that Get Paid Taking Pictures is actually made by the same people behind Get Paid To Draw. I knew from that point on that it was almost certainly a scam.
Why is it bad?
Because it leads people to believe that it’s possible to earn over $3,500 per week just from taking photos on their phone.
Yes, it pretty much is that easy, and you probably could earn a lot of money this way. But you really shouldn’t, because it involves scamming other people into scamming other people into scamming other people…
