Rank: 0/100 – SCAM
Online Jobs Now claims it is the #1 choice for an internet career, and boasts no experience or skills required while miraculously earning you up to $379 per day. If you’re fortunate enough to be reading this before joining, however, I would advise you to pass on this “opportunity”. The truth is, Online Jobs Now is another type of scam that has been around the internet for quite some time.
According to the sales page, this program was created by Kelly Simmons, although she is just a fictitious character with a stock image. The entire rags to riches story, income claims and testimonials are complete bogus. I didn’t buy this program, but I do not have to give my credit card info to these types of schemes to know what they really are. I have lost count of how many times I’ve seen scams like this advertise themselves via this exact replica sales page.
This program and similar ones are commonly referred to as link posting schemes. You can take a look at Work at Home University, Work at Home EDU, Online Home Careers, or Work at Home Paycheck to see some examples of similar programs that have used this sales pitch. While this list doesn’t even touch the top of the iceberg, perhaps it can give an idea just how prevalent they are. One interesting thing to note is none of these examples still exist today – they are constantly coming and going, replacing themselves with new names to con more people.
They lure you in on the promise of big money and little work, while throwing around big name companies you can work for that will pay you to post links. The premise isn’t completely fake – you can actually get paid for posting links for big name companies either through affiliate marketing or posting/selling advertising space. But it’s definitely not as simple as they make it sound and actually requires a lot of work.
$97, $77, $57 do they actually give you anything useful? It says they include the Home Income Series + the Home Income Series weekly training program for free as a bonus. While you may receive training for purchasing the program, it will be very basic (and probably outdated) that you can get for free elsewhere. Keep in mind you won’t receive any additional help, tools or even a website and hosting for that price. How they really get you for your money is with phone calls selling you upsells like one on one coaching, ready made sites or more expensive training courses.
Many people have complained of being conned out of thousands of dollars from their sales coaches. They say there’s a money back guarantee, but there is no credibility backing that claim. You will give them your credit card at your own risk.
Limited spots available – usually they tell you there is a small number like 3 or 9 spots left so you’ll act fast
News Verified – you’ll see images of Fox News, MSNBC, USA Today ABC and CNN but you’ll see it just says “work from home opportunities have been featured on” and is in no way actually associated with these news outlets.
Rags to Riches story – usually a single mom (or dad) will have created the program to make a better life for their family
Promise of lots of money – they always claim you can earn “up to $379 per day” and include an income calculator
One-on-One expert consultation – they will have their sales team call you with the provided phone number and try and get you to buy additional services or programs for much more money
Online Jobs Now is just one of out many of these copy cat sales page scams that in reality will not help you make money online. My number one rule of thumb is if a program tries to sell you on the idea of getting rich and doing little work, it’s probably not something you want to get involved with.
You can check out my #1 recommendation if you are interested in learning how to post links for money, but is definitely isn’t easy or simple like this program makes you believe. Keep in mind that it’s an educational program, however, and not an online job opportunity. You will be learning to create a business online, and must put in hard work to make it succeed.
