Clicks to Cash Reviews – Legit or Scam?

August 2nd, 2011  |  Published in Posting Links on Google

Clicks 2 Cash is another work at home program that is promoting link posting or, as they call it, being a “Search Engine Agent.” For the discounted price of $49.95, Clicks 2 Cash is offering you a link posting certification course, a one-on-one consultation with an “Internet Wealth Expert,” and a host of other services and bonuses.

They claim that after you complete your certification course, you are guaranteed a position as a Search Engine Agent, where you can earn $58,000 a year, working just one hour a day, five days a week. And if this claim makes you suspicious, that’s because it should.

What is the Deal with Clicks to Cash?

First, Reviewopedia makes a point when reviewing every link posting opportunity to explain that “link posting” is not a job, it’s a form of internet marketing. There is no certification needed, and since it is an independent business opportunity, Clicks to Cash can neither guarantee you a job nor give you an estimate on how much you can expect to make.

Beyond their purposeful misrepresentation of this business opportunity, there are other issues you should be aware of as well. First, while the sales page says that the cost of the program is $49.95, a quick look at the terms and conditions shows that the real price is $99.00. In order to receive the price of $49.95, you must complete a mail in rebate where the difference will be refunded to you.

Second, their bonus one-on-one Internet Wealth Expert consultation is only good for 72 hours after you purchase the program. If you have not completed your consultation at that time, you no longer qualify for it.

Finally, Clicks to Cash is run by Search and Social Goldmine, who also run EZ Stay At Home Income and New Life Profits. Both of these programs have already received negative reviews from Reviewopedia visitors, and both of which are notoriously difficult to receive refunds from. There’s no reason to believe that Clicks to Cash will be any better.

Internet Job Placement Reviews – Legit or Scam?

June 17th, 2011  |  Published in Posting Links on Google

Internet Job Placement (www.InternetJobPlacement.com) is a new website training people to be Search Engine Agents. A Search Engine Agent, according to Internet Job Placement and other similar websites, is someone who is paid to post links online for other, larger companies.

Posting links online for other companies is actually a form of internet, or affiliate, marketing, which is both a legitimate and popular way of making money online.

For a one time payment of just $49.95, you will get the necessary certification course and support you need to be successfully self employed and working online.

What’s the Catch?

Well, there are a couple things you should be aware of before investing in the Internet Job Placement certification program. The first is that you will not be paid to post links online; in fact, in many cases, you must pay to post links online.

Companies do not pay people to post links online for them. Rather, you post the links online and if your link results in a sale for that company, you will receive a percentage of the sale price. Think of it more as earning commissions than being paid to post links. If you post links that don’t result in sales, you will receive no paycheck.

Secondly, you do not need to be certified to post links online.

Link posting is an independent business opportunity. Anyone can do it at any time, without any certification or credentials of any sort. Now, if you are embarking on this type of business for the first time, obviously you would benefit from some instruction and information. However, all the information you need to become an affiliate marketer is available online for free.

If you are interested in the link posting opportunity and would like more information, a good place to start is with Google AdWords, as they are the program most people use in this line of work. And their website has lots of helpful information available for free.

NewLifeProfits.com Reviews – Legit or Scam?

May 30th, 2011  |  Published in Posting Links on Google

New Life ProfitsNew Life Profits, by Michelle Mathews, is a work at home program promising people the chance to earn $379 a day.  For only $99.00, they promise you the ability to be financially independent while being your own boss working from your own home.

New Life Profits promotes the business opportunity of link posting – or, as they call it, a “Search Engine Agent” – which is actually a form of affiliate marketing.  According to Michelle Mathews, you are paid by major corporations to post links which advertise their products.  Unfortunately, this is not the whole story.

The truth is that you become an affiliate of a corporation, in which you strike a deal where you pay to post advertising links for them, and if someone clicks that link and purchases the product from the company, you are given a percentage of the purchase price.  Instead of “being paid to post links” you are really given a commission whenever the link you paid to post results in a sale.

Now, affiliate marketing is a legitimate work at home business and people do earn money doing this kind of work, however the fact that New Life Profits would mislead their customers concerning the nature of the business they are trying to sell is not a good sign.

Other Warning Signs

Fake News Site for New Life ProfitsFirst, New Life Profits is being promoted by a fake news site, which is a type of advertisement that attempts to pass itself off as a local news organization doing a story on this work at home opportunity.  Fake news sites are in the process of being banned by the FTC for their purposely deceptive and misleading practices.  Consumers should be wary of businesses that are associated with them.

Second, this business is represented by “Michelle Mathews,” who is likely a fake persona created simply for the purpose of promoting work at home business opportunities.  Unfortunately, this name has been associated with so many scam operations in the past, that it is a terrible sign another company would so willingly choose to use this name in association with their product.

The same goes for the infamous “Kelly Richards” featured in the fake news site.  Kelly Richards and her blog have been used in almost every major fake news advertisement in the last year or two.  At this point, the use of that name is as big a warning sign as anything else.

The Bottom Line

While New Life Profits does have an “Iron Clad 8 Week Refund Policy,” the details of that policy are very particular.  You must be able to prove that you logged into their system and attempted to use it for 20 days before you are eligible to request a refund.  At that time, your use of the system and the results will be analyzed before the company decides whether or not to honor your request.

This is a pretty difficult refund policy to begin with, made even more difficult by the fact that multiple customers complain that after they paid $99.00 they were sent a login name and password which failed to log them into the system, and even after days of calling and emailing customer service, they still were unable to login.

Though this failure to login was clearly not their fault, by New Life Profits’ company policy this means those customers would be ineligible for their refund.  With all the evidence combined, consumers should stay far away from this product.
