7 Obvious Signs That a Make Money Online Program is Bogus!
1. Extravagant Promises of Success: Achieving success overnight is not feasible and of course a product that promises $1,000′s in profits in a very short time during the early stages of joining, like the first month is undoubtedly a clear-cut scam.
2. When a Product Sales Page Uses Extravagant Photo Props: like a pricy lambourghini, or a huge mansion, or someone lounging on the beach with a laptop in their hands, the probability is high that the product that is being promoted is a total scam. Companies that need to boast about their so called extravagant life styles along these lines are usually missing in credibility, integrity and trustworthiness. By all means avoid these product like the plague.
3. The Product is Vigorously Promoted by Another GURU: Yes, any time a product is being vigorously promoted through a guru that doesn’t own the product himself, you can bet in all likelihood it is a scam. The rationale behind their aggressive promotions isn’t because they believe in the product that they are marketing. Rather, to some extent they’ve an understanding that “if you promote my product, I am going to promote yours”.
4. Video Only Sales Page: Supposing you visit a website and all that you see is a video and THAT’S IT. Believe Me get out of their as fast as you can. The majority of product owners that use this method of sales pitch are the ones that “force or demand” you to actually sit through their long sales presentations knowing that their product lacks insufficient substance or offer you useful or informative, detailed content on their website or sales page. So, if you find yourself clicking on a video only sales page, it’s a really good sign that this product will undoubtedly be a scam.
5. No Immediate Way of Being Able to Get Hold of Anyone on Their Website: I’m sorry, but when a business cannot provide you an effective way for getting in contact with someone from their site/sales page, than you would be wise not to give them your online business. This should be a clue as to what future interactions with the company will be like. And also if you try to contact their support and you don’t get a answer, you might be much happier not purchasing their product. This could actually be an easy test for you to check whether the product is legitimate.
6. No Upfront Identifiable Product Support Offered.
Another thing that I like to do for practically any online product that I’m thinking of purchasing is to test their support desk. If the product you intend to buy is legitimate and they truly recognize and care about their potential customers, they will supply a timely “external” support and answer any queries that a potential customer could possibly have. If you choose to send an email to the company and you don’t receive an answer within 2 days (the faster the better), then I highly recommend that you avoid that program as it’s a sure sign of things to come in the future!
7. A Product That Has Constant Upsells. Probably one of the most typical scams online are “low ticket” initial sales (ie. $7 products). The moment that you you commit to what you chose to purchase, you are then flooded with umpteen upsells, sideways sells, and downsells and before you realize it you now have been offered hundreds and sometimes even thousands of dollars of add-on products that you will need to purchase to complete the program you just bought. What a rip-off! For this reason I am inclined to strongly recommend products that you give you the opportunity to “try before you decide to purchase” (like you will see on my Wealthy Affiliate Review).
These 7 obvious signs that a online program might be a scam or rip-off are just a few things you should check for when looking at new make money online opportunities. We are bombarded with new online opportunities every single day, it is just the nature of this vast internet and it’s is up to everyone to do their own due diligence and check out these opportunities before handing out your credit card information. It is still a very much a Buyer Beware Market.
