Learn How to Link Academy – Not Recommended

According to the fake news site 5 News Daily, Megan Carlson makes $6,000 – $8,000 per month online, working less than 15 hours per week. Simple instructions are given to sign up to Learn How to Link Academy (or just Learn how to – Academy).

Once you click on the link, the website asks for your name, email and phone number so it can search for available positions “in your area” like it’s some type of actual job with positions to be filled (it’s not).

In fact, there are tons of nearly identical systems like this, all with different names. They have been circulating for years, always trying to prey on unsuspecting and inexperienced folks.

They give a struggling single mom story, where she boasts about going from broke to earning tons of money just by following a simple system where she “posts links” online for money. This particular program has a story about a guy named Tony Anderson. I’m not sure if he’s a real person or not, but his story is near identical to the others used by similar programs.

Is a Link Placement Agent a real thing?

According to the ad, they make it seem like this is some type of actual position these companies are hiring for.

But in actuality it isn’t anything like that. It is true that there are different ways people make money online with posting ads and links for big companies like Amazon, Ebay, Walmart, and the like, but it isn’t a physical job that these companies budget and hire for that provide you with a paycheck and benefits.

Things like affiliate marketing, dropshipping or other online marketing methods may be described within their training system, but none of them operate like they claim.

It is much harder than they make it out to be, and takes a great deal of training, hard work and consistency to make money from these strategies.

What do you actually get when you sign up for Learn how to Link Academy?

Short story, frustration. If you want to build a business online, get real training here.

Long story – While Learn how to Link Academy (and similar programs) may advertise as a system for posting links learn how to link academy sign uponline, what you actually get once you pay money is probably not what you may think. In fact, it isn’t even consistent from one of these copycat products to the next.

Generally it’s rehashed basic training material that has been repackaged and resold many times under many different names. Most of the time it’ll teach you the basic premise of some way you can make money online – whether it’s affiliate marketing, CPA marketing or dropshipping – and try to get you to spend big bucks to do it.

Yet other times you may find NO training materials whatsoever after paying, only to discover an empty members area.

It also includes phone calls from their marketing team which consist of someone prying into your life, trying to find out how much money you have and are willing to invest in a business online. This can lead them to ask for a few extra hundred or several thousand dollars out of your pocket so you can “get serious” about your business.

No matter what you find, it never is going to be what was advertised. Bait and switch tactics are what these schemes do best.

It’s also not in your best interest to try and find out either, because getting a refund from these programs can be nearly impossible.

But can you really make $6,000 – $8,000/month?

The so called Megan Carlson claims she makes a pretty substantial amount from this business, at around $8,000 per month. That is quite a lot of money for someone who spends very little time actually doing much of anything, as she puts in “only about 10 – 13 hours per week”.

Putting aside the fact that Ms. Carlson is a fictional character made up for advertising purposes, the actual income claim isn’t ridiculous at all. Earning that type of income from an online business is momegan carlson scamre than realistic, if you put in the required time and effort.

The ridiculous part is how they make it seem so simple and easy. Like if signing up for this program will magically let you start earning the big bucks immediately, and with doing very little work.

There is no magic solution or program that’ll let you easily earn tons of money doing nothing. Just like in the real world, it takes time and effort.

In summary – Just too many false advertising claims to be legit

There are countless systems out there like Learn how to Link Academy that promise you’ll earn big money as a so called “Link Posting Agent” but don’t be fooled – these are nothing more than classic scams trying to lure you in under false advertising.

Even if they do provide you with some substance as far as training goes, the advertising is incredibly misleading and there are so many of these identical systems floating around on the internet I just can’t give them any type of credit as a legitimate program to learn how to earn money online.

Hi Wendy

Thanks for the heads up. I have seen these sort of pages around. I live New Zealand and the one page I have seen circulating online here is some guy whose girlfriend left him and then he made 10’s of thousands of dollars and then she wanted him back or something along those lines. I can see right through these sorts of websites after having some experience online, but for someone new looking for an opportunity I can see how they could easily get sucked in. It’s refreshing to see someone like yourself showing others the reality of programs like this one. These guys are a bunch of scumbags preying on peoples purse strings.

    Yeah another day, another new scammer trying to make a buck. The internet isn’t all bad, but it is definitely flooded with these types of programs and it can be really hard to understand what is real and what isn’t when you aren’t familiar with making money online.Thank you for the kind words.

Hey Wendy thanks so much for this information.

I have not seen this particular program but for sure I would avoid it at all costs.

There are a lot of these so called money making programs on the internet these days and they are very convincing too on the outset.

It is easy to get dragged in with false hopes only to find frustration after you have parted with your money.

Thanks for pointing this one out to everyone, and I like your suggestion of using Wealthy Affiliate for your number one choice.

I am with you all the way on this!

Thanks

Chris

    Unfortunately too many people are still giving their money to these programs. When there’s a promise of making easy money people are going to get sucked in because they want to believe that opportunity exists. Unfortunately it takes a lot of hard work to make money online, it is no different from the real world.

How did Link Academy get an endorsement from CBS News? I don’t know how legit that is.
The only way I know to make instant cash online is to sign up with PPC sites. But these sites only pay pennies to start with before you can figure out how to leverage their use and make some cash. My friend has made some money over a period doing that.
The surest method of making cash is to just build your own website.

    It’s not legit, all these types of sites claim to be endorsed from major news companies. Yeah, nothing is as easy as these types of programs say it is.

Hi Wendy,
Wow I continue to be amazed, also giving reviews on scam companies for my business on just how these fraudulent schemes still survive online.
The how-to-link-academy is so bogus that I find it incredible that there still are naive people out there who buy into their junk.

Really now, a person can earn $6,000 – 8,000/month working 10 – 13 hours per week? Right and I personally own property on planet Saturn for sale! The really pathetic thing that I hinted above, is there still are people in the world looking to make $$$$ as easily as possible who WOULD otherwise still fall for this scam. The fact that this Tony Anderson character has 3 times dropped his price for membership into his program starting at $197 and now for $47 tells the fact that somewhere, someone is probably still foolishly willing to purchase for this garbage.

There still are identical programs online like this one – telling people that by creating links and ads online in promoting products for Amazon, Wal-mart, Target, Clickbank, etc. that it would be soooo easy to earn money quickly.

Yikes I can’t understand how people still fall for this line of b.s. But because you took the time to write such a great review Wendy it only is proof positive that some mother/father of 3 kids living somewhere in the world still believes that this fairy tale is a positive reality to their quickly becoming rich. And that they still needed to be awakened from their fantasy dreams!

Thank you for warning people Wendy! Stay away from this scam as far as possible!

Jeff

    I think when people are in a desparate situation they look for solutions, and unfortunately may be pursuaded just enough to fall for these types of systems that they normally otherwise may not. It’s all about timing and sometimes people will take the bait. It is sad that there are so many of them out there willing to take advantage of people like that though. How do they sleep at night?
