Frequently, when you come across subjects along the lines of “work from home,” or “make money online,” you see things like Photoshopped cars, and fake videos of people making unbelievable amounts of money. Then, to some unsuspecting people, who think they can somehow make $2,000 in their first week are cheated out of hundreds, or even thousands of dollars.
Was it a scam? Probably. Or, it could have just been the simple fact that the person bought all these tools that could have worked for him, however, he just simply didn’t know how to use them to his advantage and thus, didn’t make his money back.
In this post, I just want to highlight some things. Sometimes, when you see work-at-home opportunities, you’ll see people living it up, but you know something? The results those guys are seeing aren’t typical. In most cases, they were placed in a good position by the head of the company, so the results are not only atypical, they’re near impossible.
You may wake up one day, to see that Microsoft is no more. Xbox One is failing, and Windows 8 has been ill-received and so on. No company is guaranteed to be here tomorrow.
There are a few ways to easily tell if a site is legit and actually pays:
1. They have a forum.
There are sites out there that are legit with no forum. However, a forum allows members to chat amongst each other, and when sites stop paying and they have forums, people get mad. Every post bashes the site, telling people not to join, then, people will begin to spam and finally, the boards aren’t used anymore.
A legit site will have thousands of members. No spam, and a good overall community.
2. Links to like them on facebook, twitter, etc.
You’re not going to have 20,000, or 1,000,000+ likes on facebook if you’re making people unhappy.
3. It probably takes you a month before you see any money.
Money doesn’t just come from no where. You shouldn’t expect to sign up for a site, and make $100 dollars in one day. Most people are not going to do that. Even if there’s 1 person for every 2,000 that does, the other 1,999 people wont. And that’s who I’m referring to.
Sometimes, you need to know advanced tactics to get in front of people. Well, knowing how to do this already will no doubt help you out, but with some sites, the only way to earn is by having other people join with you, and you’ll need a strong following of people that will join you, and to have that strong following will also cost you lots and lots of money.
Being honest here, if you cannot be bothered enough to make 30 dollars in a month on a site, like, say, Clixsense, as easy as that is to accomplish, you’re not going to have what it takes to earn very much. Not to say it will always be the case. You always have to devote some type of time and effort. Everyone starts somewhere.
As long as it’s proper value for your time, an extra $30, $50, $100, or whatever, is still 30, 50, or 100 more than what you had.
5. Based in a reasonable country.
Yes, I know, that’s subjective, but, if it’s based in a country like the US, for example, chances are quite good that if they’ve been around a while, they are completely legitimate and following legal rules, or else they would have, without a doubt been shut down.
Yes, I use Clixsense, as well as other sites. I have personally been paid multiple times through it. It has a forum, and over 113,000 likes on facebook, and doesn’t cost a penny to join and is based in the US. There’s even a blog I made going into a few details, which can be found here.
One thing’s for sure, I wouldn’t waste my time writing up a blog like this if it didn’t work. Wouldn’t be a smart use of my time.
