The truth behind make money scams

I bet you have visited and seen these proof of daily, monthly and yearly payments.

...and more...


Certificates of being the most honest employee online.

Fake diploma's....


The most faithful tax payer

Fake receipt maker


Fake landing pages

Fake landing pages - 279 million in 12 weeks? That would be 1209 million in a year? For everybody who will join?


I see 10 Team Millionaire New Members in this add, and they claim to have earned together 12090 million dollar a year? Never read about this in the newspaper.

Proven online money system

There are indeed a couple of programs online who are proven to be genuine. One of this programs is learning how affiliate marketing works.

Affiliate Marketing definition

A way for a company to sell its products by signing up individuals and pay them a pre-arranged percentage when a sale takes place.

There is no such thing as

easy money

otherwise, all my neighbors would drive a Ferrari.


Just learn the skills

to create an additional online income,

which can grow into a full online income.

Hard to believe those websites exist! And, unfortunately, many people fall for it and get burned!

Too many scams around, and I was a victim for a couple few, in which one I lost quite a bit of money. Since I found WA, I never looked back. I did join a few more programs after that, but at the end of the day, nothing beats WA :-)

If people actually realised the value here at WA then we would get tonnes more refferals i think,people in general are sick of looking at ads that promise great things when most of them are complete rubbish!!!
In all honesty what we get here for the cost is amazing!
People can pay as much as we pay a month for our membership for hosting a website,
We get 50 websites if we like! and all the other rescources as you know.

Yes, the value here is incredible!

I am very happy to have this opportunity and like the transparency here. I joined on 6/4, published on 6/9, gotten approved by a few and still applying for more. Everything I learned was new to me so I find a lot of value in a real education rather than sales & upsells, and team building. Those are usually just following some one else's script anyway and sometimes you just can't delivery it the same as someone else. I think the WA referral system is just an added bonus to the truly unlimited potential.

In any case I wish much success and happiness to you and yours.

In my opinion one of the weak things about wa is there are no upsells. Now you first must understand the purpose of an upsell is to expose you to the next set of tools to increase your income. The first one we ever bought took us to $5000.00 per month.

There is nothing in WA to do that. WA works for some people. Others say they have never made a dime and have been Faithfully paying membership dues for years. An upsell is only for people who are making money.

Don't confuse it with a Hustle. A Hustle is something under $50 that the average person will simply go for. An upsell will cost at least $1,000 and give you something useful for your money.

Beware of the Poor Man's mentality. It is what keeps him poor.

But your general post I agree with.
Reply
Loes Premium
Depends on how you look at it, I am glad they have no up selling, WA works for everyone the same, only not everyone will work the same with the tools WA is supplying.

jivitaa339 Premium
Loes, I totally agree with you. No upsells for me means total transparency and honesty in WA.

OldMCSEGuy Premium
There are plenty of ways to make more money. As long as you're not brainwashed into thinking there is only one path. Wa appeals to a certain type of client. I know for one I should not even be here.

However my new program was inspired by Marion Blacks website building classes. I know I can teach someone how to make $500 in 60 days. They can easily turn that into $2,000 over the next 60 days. And then they are set. The paragraphs are out of order because I added this last.



In fact that's how we learned ABOUT WA back in 2012. Many people were leaving wa coming over because they had maxed out at 200 or $300 per month and they needed much more.

Thank you Loes for your help along the way.

It is just as with Twitter with the 140 characters.. people do not read books anymore.. takes too much time... the same is with money.. we all want to be millionaire tomorrow, no hard work anymore, better to be lazy and think that these scams will do the job, well they do not, there is indeed nothing wrong with learning and do something to earn your money....

Quite right Fador, I see on twitter people who "claim" to get you thousands of followers for paying them a fee, but when I look at their status they have only 7 followers themselves:)

Hey, Loes. Thanks so much for all the resources I 'need' to take my business to the 'next level' I can now provide 'Proof' my income and qualifications and fool as many people as I like. WOW !!! Thank you so much! I'm going to make a million overnight with this.:)

You are so right there are no shortcuts and the only place the 'money' comes before, 'work' is in the dictionary!

Hi Loes and I agree with you 100%.
No quick fixes to earning an income online and anyone who tells you its possible in a very short time is obviously lying.
Hard work, dedication and maximum effort are required to just earn a reasonable income from the internet that will enable you to have it as a full-time 'Job' that allows you the freedom to do what you want, when you want that a normal 9 to 5 will not.
Enjoy your Friday in the Netherlands Loes and take care out there.

Hello Loes, thank you for your blog post! I'm amazed what some Internet marketers send me, allegedly if I joined these programs, I would be a millionaire several times over within a week! Generally I delete these emails and unsubscribe from them! Everything takes time and the best way is to learn step-by-step and Wealthy Affiliate is the perfect way to get started! All the best to you, Roy.
