Website: Careers For You
Review Summary: Another link posting scam brought to you by a fake persona known as Kelly Simmons and there are 2 known versions of this website. One version is located at www.careers-for-you.com and the other at www.careers-for-you.com/nl and both promote the exact same program. This will not make you any money and it could end up costing you a lot more than you bargained for.
Price: $27- $97 plus enormous up selling.
Why Caution Is Recommended
If you compare the two websites you’ll find that one really goes for the overhyped ‘get rich quick and easy’ approach while the other is not quite as extreme.
Both of them make the same claims though, that you’ll just sign up and start making money easily by ‘posting links’ which I can assure you is simply not the case.
The only way to legitimately make money this way is with a business model known as affiliate marketing. I can say this model works from experience but there is a lot more work involved than they make out, you also only get paid when someone buys something through your affiliate link- not for just posting them.
Some programs pay you a small amount if you can just get people to click on your links but you need a lot of traffic (website visitors) for this to work and it is often associated with annoying, deceptive and spam like practices.
Heres the best and most legit way to make money with affiliate marketing:
- Choose a niche (a group of people looking for something online)
- Build a website (this is super easy so don’t freak out)
- Get traffic (get website visitors for free through Google, Yahoo and Bing)
- Make money (the exciting part)
All of this can be accomplished in a relatively short amount of time but unfortunately these guys are not legit and will not teach you this method at all. You can learn how to build a profitable online business using the right methods here.
What They Are Teaching You
If you are among one of the lucky ones who actually get to access their account then this is what you can expect:
- Watch some generic training videos you could access for free on Youtube
- Wonder what on earth you are meant to be doing
- Pay money for advertising space since that is your only option
- Spam social media, forums and anywhere else you can to get people clicking on your links since you’re now broke after paying for advertising that didn’t work
- Get a barrage of annoying calls from an experienced sales team dedicated to getting yo to buy more products that also won’t help you
- Contact support to cancel your account to get a refund and find it’s almost impossible
- Call your bank to try and cancel your card and become very frustrated and disillusioned at the whole making money online thing- their biggest crime of all in my opinion
At this point you are probably getting that sinking felling that you are lost and don’t know what to do to create an income on the Internet.
How do I know this?
Because I was once in your shoes and I know exactly what it’s like.
Keep reading as I teach you some of the things to watch for in your quest to find a legit opportunity…
The Red Flags To Watch For
#1 The Hype: These kind of fake opportunities all use completely unsubstantiated income claims, promises of easy money and push button success, if it sounds too good to be true it definitely is. If it were that easy then we’d all be rich, plain and simple.
#2 Fake Everything: The closer you look the more you can see that everything from the comments, testimonials, income pictures and even the business itself is totally fake. They use terms like ‘search engine agent’ to explain the opportunity when in fact that is completely made up, there is no such thing I promise you. They always use fake personas to ‘protect the owner’ which is total BS, they do it so they can change it once they get exposed. These websites were once run by ‘Kelly Scott’ and have changed to Kelly Simmons… case in point.
#3 The History: One thing a lot of people overlook (I have done this myself) is the actual history of the people behind the website and what other websites they are involved with. In this case these people are known scammers and are responsible for a string of absolute rubbish and generic websites all linking to the same program.
#4 Fake Affiliations: They often try and pass up associations with credible news companies and even have news videos on their sales pages that have absolutely nothing at all to do with their program. They do this to build trust and credibility which are essential to them making a sale. Don’t buy into it. They are not, and I repeat not, in any way associated with any reputable news sources.
#5 Methods Of Promotion: They also use a lot of fake news websites that deceive and mislead people into thinking their program is ‘in the spotlight’ and has genuine credibility which couldn’t be further from the truth. They’ll try and say they aren’t responsible for the website that link to their main programs sales page but after you look at some of the details it is very clear they are made by the same people.
#6 Pressure: They often use tactics that make you feel like you need to ‘purchase now’ because there are ‘limited spots available’ which is utter BS. There are not limited spots and there never will be, it’s nothing more than a tactic to stop you from making an informed decision.
Take this for example… after landing on the payment screen I tried to exit and they trapped me in several times until the price of this very program came down to only $27!
It’s a little strange how this is such a ‘limited opportunity’ due to popularity yet they are so desperate they slashed over 72% off the price!
It’s not just about the program being useless, that’s just the start. These guys now have your credit card and personally identifiable information (required to buy) and they have been and will continue to use this to line their pockets.
Many people are reporting cards being charged fraudulently, constant calls and emails harassing them to buy more and having totally unrelated companies suddenly calling them on a regular basis. This means they sell your info to the highest bidder which could even lead to identity theft.
This program will not make you any money and will almost certainly end in frustration and loss.
I do NOT recommend this to anyone and encourage you to share your experiences below to help others avoid this scam. I hope this review has helped and feel free to share this to warn others!
