You can make REAL MONEY working from home. That’s the argument from Home Jobs Today (and their emphasis too). First of all, yeah, you can. A lot of people do earn their living from home. Some of them have specialized jobs and specialized skill sets.
But, that’s not what Home Jobs Today is promoting.
Instead, the site is promoting this pipe dream. It is focused on the idea that you can make money immediately, with no skills and no experience.
It all sounds great, and a little too good to be true. In fact, this information here should be the first clue that it isn’t as good as it seems:
If you’re really going to be working for yourself online, how are the number of spots limited? For that matter, how is it area specific? I mean, I’ve worked in internet marketing in many parts of the world and physical location really doesn’t factor into it much.
To find out what they’re talking about, you have to enter your email address and phone number. That’s never a good plan. 90% of the time doing this will get you spammed with emails and phone calls, all trying to promote upsells or different ‘amazing’ opportunities. I would know – I’ve tried giving my real details to see what would happen.
The site for Home Jobs Today makes me laugh. It is the same as countless other sites that I’ve seen, and it even makes the same claims. For example, here’s the logo for a site called Home Internet Careers – does it look familiar?
In fact, this site seems to be almost a direct clone of the Home Internet Careers site. It is even presented by the same person, Kelly Scott, although it’s very likely that this is a stock photo with a fake name.
Many aspects of the site are also incredibly manipulative. One example is this fake news presentation:
This low quality clip has been recycled over and over again across many different sites. Because it looks real, people tend to believe that sites like Home Jobs Today really do work. Here’s another example:
Where do I even start with this one?
Well, $379 per day is a pretty specific figure. They probably just picked it because it sounds great. I think most of us would love to earn that much a day. Many of you might be comfortable with that much per week.
But, because the site is saying you can earn ‘up to’ that figure, they aren’t actually giving you any indication of what you are likely to earn. Any time a site gives you are high figure for how much you could be earning, you should be concerned. Legitimate sites will either refuse to give a figure, or they will be very conservative in the information that they provide.
Realistically, just about everything on the site is made up in some way or another. All of the photos seem to be stock photos, rather than actual people associated with the product. The same is true for the testimonials, and you see very similar testimonials on many different sites.
Additionally, many of the success stories on the site sound fantastic, but you’ll notice that they are very vague.
Here’s the thing. When I tell people about how I make money online, I’m specific. The approach that I use works, but I’m not going to convince people of that if I don’t provide them real information.
The main reason that a site might choose to be vague like this is that they don’t want people to know too much about the system. That’s probably because it isn’t as good as it sounds.
Actually Making Money
Making money is what it all comes down to. If you read far enough down the page at Home Jobs Today, you’ll find that the whole system is based on link posting. Link posting is working from home, sure, but you’re not really working for yourself.
Instead, you’re working for a company and there are pretty strict requirements on what you have to do to earn money.
Link posting is a trap.
It’s a trap because it sounds so easy and so profitable, when it is actually nothing like that. For example, the site focuses on the idea that you can earn $15 each for links, and that you can post 15 links in an hour. Yeah right. It simply doesn’t work like that.
I mean, sites don’t even tend to pay $15 per link. You’d be lucky to get one. Plus, you don’t actually get paid for the links you post. You get paid for the ones that stay. And that, is a completely different story. In most places, posting links is considered spamming and sites will get rid of them – often blocking you in the process.
So, the process ends up being a lot more time-consuming and challenging than it first appears. My question is, why bother?
I actually make money online, but it's not in the way that Home Jobs Today says. You can read about how I started my first business online and how you can start your own. All you need is a simple website, and a topic you enjoy writing about, and you can actually earn money from home!
