For many people, the idea of making money online can be so compelling that common sense takes a back seat. That isn’t too surprising, as people may find themselves in situations where they are desperate to find any way of making money, especially if it is a quick and easy way. Jessica Marshall and other similar people on similar sites take complete advantage of this, manipulating people into spending money that they just don’t have.
The thing is… Jessica Marshall probably isn’t even a real person. The name is part of an overall strategy to make you feel like anyone can make money online with Work at Home Paycheck. The approach is a particularly common one and there are many other similar names online that don’t seem to be real people at all.
In this case, Jessica Marshall is promoted as an out-of-luck single mother who found a fantastic way to make money online. That particular claim seems to be especially common nowadays on websites. This might be because it seems like if a stay-at-home mother can make money, anyone can.
As is very often the case, any images or video of Jessica are likely to be actors promoting the system. The entire thing is just one long manipulation, and you certainly don’t end up with an effective way to make money out of it all.
Selling You On The Dream
Most of the marketing for this site is focused on the dream of making a lot of money online. That’s why there is so much boasting about how much Jessica makes or how unique the system is. Yet, the site offers very little information about how the system actually works. To find out that information, you generally have to pay.
For example, if you watch through the entire promotion video for the site, you will find a lot of information about how much money can be made and how much money Jessica makes, but that really is about it.
This is a major red flag for any product.
Most of the time, legitimate products spend the time to tell you what they offer and how they are better than what is already out there. They do that because their product is something that you are likely to want.
On the other hand, scam sites will hide as much as possible about their products, because what they are promoting simply won’t stand up to any scrutiny.
The Site Itself
Somewhat surprisingly, the site for Work at Home paycheck does still exist. That’s a little surprising, because scammy sites like this typically get taken down or disappear relatively quickly. However, it isn’t working all the way, because the links to sign up don’t work.
With that in mind, it might seem surprising that I am even bothering to review the website. After all, it can’t trick people into spending money if it doesn’t let you sign up. However, people still search for the name Jessica Marshall and there are still many more sites out there that take very similar approaches.
While it is a little hard to tell, the site appears to be promoting link posting, as trying to go to the log-in screen brings up this page:
For some reason, 90% of the sites using the whole fake name approach to marketing seem to also be promoting link posting. Some of this may come from the fact that link posting sounds great at face value, but once you start to look at it, you can see multiple holes in the approach.
One of the issues with link posting is that it is based on an old premise. It focuses on the idea that companies want to pay you to post links to their sites.
If you know only a little about internet marketing, then that claim does sound true. After all, sites do want people to go there, so paying for links sounds like a good way. Yet, for websites, the approach isn’t very effective.
For one thing, when you pay for links you tend to get very poor quality traffic. So, you might get people visiting your site, but most of them aren’t likely to actually be interested in buying anything. That makes getting the traffic kind of pointless. Additionally, getting a lot of poor quality links doesn’t even help search engine ranking anymore.
So, there simply isn’t much incentive for companies to buy links.
In turn, this means that there really isn’t much money in posting links. Typically, link posting programs might offer $1 or so per link and that doesn’t count any links that sites take down after you post them. In general, you end up spending a lot of time trying to make money under this scheme, with very little success.
Realistically, any effective approach to making money is going to take time and effort. Any shortcuts are likely to be nothing but hype. However, making money online itself isn’t impossible, as I discuss via my free email course.
