I’ve been doing some research on some of the popular internet marketing programs and many of them are nothing more than shady, get rich quick schemes. Here are 5 signs that an internet marketing program is a scam:
1. They promise you hundreds of thousands of dollars overnight just by pressing a few buttons.
Trust me, if somebody developed a system like this, they wouldn’t share it with anybody, much less sell it for $50. If they sold it, they would probably charge $10,000 for it. You can’t make huge amounts of money with no work. Internet marketing is a great part time job from home but it takes time and effort. Even if you just have a couple hours here and there, you can make money from it. Just not mansions and sports cars money.
2. They come up with some wild story about how they got the system.
The guy from Auto Wealth Maker says that he stole it from a huge corporation that he worked for and got laid off from. Not only would that be highly illegal, but I’m not really buying the story.
The guy from Commission Maniac says he went to a soccer game and started talking to these 2 kids who just happened to be part of this elite group of internet millionaires. He went home with them (in their Ferrari) and they gave him the program which is just a push-button-make-millions software.
The guy from the Easy Click Commissions website is a hired actor that actually appears in a couple of other videos for other products.
This one is probably my favorite. Stripped Down Profits is a program developed by a “stripper” who got the system from some internet marketing bigwig while he was on a cocaine binge and she bribed it out of him.
3. They say something like “I don’t know how you found this exclusive members only page” like it’s some hidden exclusive site you weren’t supposed to see. This is usually followed up by “I don’t care…I make so much money online, I don’t even need you and it doesn’t matter to me if you buy this product”. The guy from Commission Takers uses this tactic. Then he goes and posts a fake bank statement.
4. Their website says that only a limited number of spots are available or the website will be taken down after a certain amount of time. These people are in the business of selling their system and they’re going to take the site down? This one’s a little bit iffy. There are some good programs out there who use this tactic, but it’s still a little bit dishonest.
5. They use screenshots from their bank accounts or Clickbank accounts that seem too good to be true. These are really easy to photoshop. Most products will use some screenshots and not all of them are scams, but just keep this in mind.
Another screenshot tactic they use is to show you their Clickbank account for money they made selling their own product. People who sell their own Clickbank product usually make tens of thousands of dollars in a short time, but they make it look like they earned this money organically by building websites from scratch.
