If you ever find a site that claims you can make a lot of money quickly, you should be very wary of it. Sites use this as a way to grab the attention of their viewers, but of course, they can’t actually live up to this claim. The Home Income Program by ‘Amanda Jones’ is one example of this and as usual, the program is nothing but hype.
Frequently, this type of site uses the name and image of a pretty young woman to promote their product. The approach has a few advantages. For one, it makes it seem like there is an actual person behind the product who isn’t afraid to make themselves known. Additionally, it offers a little bit of eye candy for the predominantly male audience, like this image for ‘Mary Johnson’ from a similar site:
You will even find the same name used across multiple sites – although I’m not sure whether this is to make it seem more authentic or just because it’s less effort than figuring out a new one.
Either way, the name used isn’t real.
The images used aren’t real either. Typically they come from a stock image site, which is why you find the same image used across multiple sites. It makes sense too. Stock image sites are a great place to get good, high quality images at a relatively low price – and sites like Home Income Program always look for ways to do as little work as possible.
Sites Come And They Go
Sites like Home Income Program are all too common. Often, you will sites that are just slight variations of each other, or ones that use the same themes and tactics to get customers. In some cases, they may even use the same wording and the same images.
A lot of this comes from the fact that the sites simply do not last. Before long, there are reviews like this one online that call the sites out as bare-faced liars. What happens next is that the sites start to disappear.
In fact, I’ve written this post on the Home Income Program, but as far as I can tell, that site no longer exists. Even some of the sites that hosted glowing positive reviews have disappeared.
It’s all a tactic for this type of site. The people behind the site don’t put in a whole lot of time or money into getting it live and keeping it there. That means that they can drop it once people start to figure out the scam. Then, they simply publish a new similar-but-different site.
Often, they will cut corners even more by using the same names, the same images or the same testimonials – which is why the sites look so similar to start off with.
For example, the phrase below is the same one that was used for the Home Income Program and it was also used for other similar programs like Home Job Institute.
The way that these sites simply use the same elements over and over is a sure-fire indication that they aren’t particularly interested in quality. That has strong implications for the products these sites offer – and it suggests that the products don’t exactly offer quality either.
The whole gimmick here is link posting. Link posted is often promoted as a fast way to make money – probably because it seems like a really easy thing to do. That isn’t actually the case though.
The bottom line is that link posting does not pay well. It barely pays anything at all.
Why would it? With link posting, you get paid for the links that you retain. That means that the link still has to be up there when they check, which is often a month or two later. You also don’t earn much for each link.
It is also an approach that gets consistently harder as you go along, because you have to constantly find new places to post links. At the same time, most sites hate spam, so will actively work to remove any links that you post. All of this makes the process of link posting time consuming. As you are getting paid per link, this also means that you earn very little per hour, often far below minimum wage.
Making Money Online
I hate sites that promote making money quickly and easily, because they are so misleading. Adding in a fake person like ‘Amanda Jones’ only makes the whole thing worse. Sites like that also give online business a bad name.
You see, it is actually possible to make money online, but heavily hyped sites are never the answer. Instead, you have to take an approach that is more realistic and where you actually learn how to build a business. That isn’t as hard as it seems and with the right guidance, you can go far.
