To the uninitiated, TaskEarning might sound like a simple and easy way to make money. Unlike many sites, this one even explains precisely what you need to do to earn. Just share the link and get people to join.
That doesn’t sound too hard. It’s like a simple version of affiliate marketing, right? The problem is how much you’re meant to be making. $1,000 per day. Really? You’re not going to make that with legitimate affiliate marketing for quite some time. A claim like this makes the company sound very suspicious. So, what’s really going on?
How The System Is Meant To Work
TaskEarning promotes one way to make money. The idea is kind of like affiliate marketing, as you’re taking the link that they give you and sharing it with people. The site suggests you should do this wherever you possibly can.
For every referral who signs up, you earn $1. That sounds easy enough, but as I mentioned, it really doesn’t make sense.
One catch is that you have to wait until you hit $100 before you can withdraw. This where TaskEarning gets the upper hand. Members end up doing a considerable amount of work for the company with no way to know whether they’ll get paid at the end.
Earning money might sound simple at first. Just get 100 people to join. As many will already know, that’s easier said than done. The site doesn’t offer you any training to help you along the way.
You’d probably end up pasting the links on everywhere you can think of. The concept sounds like spam and the site doesn’t look much better. Most people aren’t going to even click on the link. Only a fraction who visit the site will ever sign up.
By the way, the member's area of the site states that you earn ‘up to’ $1 for each visitor. That’s different than what they suggested initially. Up to $1 means that they could just pay you something like $0.01 per link. They could also change the amount on a whim.
Of course, it’s very unlikely that you’ll ever get paid, even if you do hit the $100 target. The company will give you some reason why not, like the ones listed in the FAQ.
This phrasing gives them the ability to refuse payout for pretty much any reason. Alternatively, they might just ignore your request and any emails that you sent.
Because of the high withdrawal requirements, anyone who gets to this point would have done a lot of work for the company. This is also why there are so few reviews saying that TaskEarning doesn’t pay out – no one has got this far yet.
There are a couple of reasons why I’m certain about this.
First, the scam has been done before. The site Best Cash Job made the same types of claims with no evidence that anyone has actually earned. In both cases, the websites just get free work from users.
Second, no one is buying anything. If you’re not spending money and the people you recruit aren’t – how is Best Cash Job making money? It’s always concerning when a company offers money for free.
There are also many red flags. These reinforce the idea that the company is unreliable and low quality.
Issues With The Site
Most make money sites suffer from the same main problem – excessive claims. The hype is often extreme, to the point that it couldn’t possibly be true. Task Earning does have some of this. The main aspect is the idea of earning up to $1,000 daily. There aren’t many places that will pay that much. The odds of some obscure site doing it are pretty slim. As someone that earns a full time income online, I know that you need to be rocking your business for years before you start earning $1k per day, and this figure isn't going to come from $1 or $5 sales.
Despite this, TaskEarning’s biggest problem is quality. Take the income claims as an example. The beginning of the site states that you can earn $1,000 per day or $1 per click. Later on, the site says that you can earn $5 per task and can make between $100 and $500 per day. That’s a pretty big difference and no explanation is provided.
They made this claim in the FAQs:
Which is it, $100 – $500 or $1,000 per day? If it is $1,000 per day and earnings are unlimited, how come the top earners are making $5,500+ per month. I would expect a much higher figure than that for earnings of $1,000 per day.
The writing on the site is another quality issue. This is fine in some places, in others it seems like the writer didn’t know English very well. You can see that in the screenshot below, with the phrase ‘there is much tasks to accomplish daily’.
The payment approach is another problem. $100 is a pretty high withdrawal amount. It’s unusual to see this in companies that pay at low rates per task. Most such sites (like survey sites), keep the withdrawal amounts relatively low to make sure people stick around.
I was also amused by how they describe the payment approach. Members can apparently request an instant payment, which might take 5 business days to process. That’s not what instant means.
For some reason, they also have social links at the bottom of each page, but they don’t work. Most just send you back to the page that you’re on, while one opens a blank email.
How It All Really Works
One motivation behind this site is data collection. You give them your email address, first name and last name when you sign up. You create a password as well.
That information might seem pretty harmless, but some companies collect and then sell the data on. Anyone who signs up will probably end up getting spammed for many crazy offers as time goes on.
The member's area also tries to get you to buy into other programs. One link takes you to The AZ Code, while a page on the site talks about earning tons of money through surveys.
The link takes you through to a site called Take Surveys For Cash. I’ve reviewed that site before. Not surprisingly, it fails to live up to the claims. Take Surveys For Cash basically just charges you a $39 fee and provides you with a list of survey companies that you could have found on your own.
There are other examples too. The links used have an affiliate tag, so whoever is running TaskEarning earns a commission from everyone who signs up. TaskEarning itself simply acts as a traffic funnel to get email addresses and possibly commissions.
TaskEarning is concerning right from the very beginning. There’s simply no way a site will pay you $1 per referral when it earns nothing from most of those referrals. Once you consider how little effort has gone into the site and the claims that don’t make sense, it’s clear that this is just a scam.
TaskEarning is free to join, but I would still never recommend it. You’d end up spamming links across the web and wasting a considerable amount of time – just to find that the site never pays out what they promised to.
Products like this are obvious scams. They claim that making money online is quick, easy, and you just need to pay the fee to learn the secret.
In my 8 years making money online, that's never been true. To make money online, no matter the method, you have to work hard, and work consistently for at least 2-3 months before you start seeing results
