Working from Home Buyers Beware
We have all seen it before right? The promise of earning more money by giving a company money to work with them. These scams come in a variety of packages and websites. The most common misconception is that multi-level marketing is a scam. While some multi-level marketing techniques are scams out their, there are still some legit work at home scams.
Moneyjojo Personal finance blog will show you the best ways to make money online. I am a stay at home mother and I am currently looking for employment. In the city that I live, the job market is increasingly disappearing or they require you to have ridiculous qualifications for $7.50 an hour jobs. I decided to try some multi-level marketing companies and I have been continuously looking for employment online. Reading article after article, webpage from webpage and signing up for email subscriptions while continuously getting junk mail like there is no more tomorrow. Finally, I have given up and have gone back to the mundane way of job searching: Applying at every business possible while they are hiring or not. I am still searching for that job on the internet, but I have refused to put money down on any business because I have really no connections to websites, blogging and other tools to help you use these services over the internet.
The most common scams are most of the jobs that are posted in ads and throughout YouTube.
Most of these videos that contain any hints on how to make money go through companies such as EZmoney.com, or whatever that website is called. These videos contain no referrals, no reviews and are just simply an ad. Not giving you any information through the ad about the company. When you click on a link related to the website you usually pull up another rich quick scheme where someone posted a picture of them driving in a Ferrari or their multi-million dollar human claiming that by simply putting forth 150 dollars, you will be able to be rich in six weeks or however long it takes you to start your business.
Those are the scams. When you click on a link, regardless of what company it is or where the video/ picture came from, it usually shows a person driving a fancy yacht or having a nice new house and a picture of their family. They continuously say that they have the secrets to make money online and you can subscribe for free to their websites. That is another scam on how they get you into giving you their email address. Thinking that this may just be the most legit thing you could see if it is free and than once you get these emails, they start asking for a small fee or a large fee for a book or monthly subscription to magazines and cds.
I have also been through a ton of websites that are like Careerbuilder.com or craigslist.com, where they have postings of jobs that are available through the internet. I figured that at this rate, I can find easier an at home job. No such luck there. I ended up receiving thousands of emails both in my inbox and junk mail from various companies and people claiming that they have the secret to online marketing and if you pay them 100 or more dollars for the start fee I will be able to have that knowledge.
Workers beware. It is a wonderful quote and I will continuously use this throughout my writing. I am a strong believer that some multi-level marketing companies can work even with a fee, but you need your social base started up before you sign up for these companies and you need to have the right sales pitch to do these type of businesses. Make you sure you research into the company as much as possible, finding reviews, going through bbb and mentioning it on your blogs, vlogs or any networking site that you have so you can further find out if this is a true business or another scam.
If a company is one of those Pay to click websites where they offer you packages of referrals, I would not buy them and suggest you do the same. Not only are they a waste of time and patience, but why buy websites, links and referrals when you should do the work yourself. Search engines are the worst because if you over-search on these search engines they start thinking that you have a BOT that is doing these searches due to the people that have scammed these companies before. You are only allowed a certain number of clicks and searches per day not allowing you to reach over 1.00 by the end of the month. Any company that goes by a cent count of 0.0015 cents per click is also a scam. They will send you continuous emails, referral buying software and more adware is adding on to your computer.
If you want to start an at home business, find companies such as Arbonne, Mary-Kay and many other well known companies that offer these positions. While they still make you pay a fee, if you have a social base set up and are a sales savvy individual, then you should be able to quickly make money. If you are quiet, non-interactive and only want the help of the internet without doing any work, than I believe you are out of luck at trying to work from home. My advice is for those who want to do these companies RESEARCH, RESEARCH and do as much research as possible. Do not be skimpy on your information because you never know what might loopholes you will find later on. Also, make sure you know you have the area to sell make-up, insurance, organic coffee, foods, health resources and other things because if you sign up for these websites, it may turn out that if you do any type of door-to-door selling, telemarketing or parties, you may not get any customers at all.
