At Home Income Source program is nothing but a get-rich-quick scheme. The program will let you gain access “to a work-at-home Job that can earn you up to $87 an hour”. As you submit your info for more information, you will find that “there’s currently 1 position left in your city.” Interestingly, if you check back one or two days later, the one position is still available! To be completely honest, it will always be available as long as athomeincomesource.com is online. This is the typical false scarcity scam. It creates sense of urgency so that people like you will open the wallet.
How does At Home Income Source Work?
At athomeincomesource.com, the sales page begins with the story of Jennifer Smith, a young single mum who stumbled upon a brilliant work at home opportunity. According to the claims, Jennifer Smith is “the red hot center of the work at home industry” who has conducted numerous interviews and seminar.
Yeah right! I have been in the same industry for few years, and I’ve never heard about her. If you search through the web you will find many “Jennifer Smith” in other professions, but you will not come across one who is a work-at-home guru. The website also doesn’t publish her articles, blog, Facebook or any other information to prove the credentials.
Then, they go on to tell you that you can make money by posting links online and offline. You will get paid $15 per links. The best thing is, many big companies (including Gap, Nextflix, and Blockbuster) are actively hiring “online posters” to work from home. If you are interested, you are required to pay “only” $49.95 to join the certification program. If you try to close the browser, they will offer you “80% discount for just $29.95″ at pop-up window. Again if you exit the webpage, the new window shows “limited time offer 90% off” at $9.95.
Upon sign up, you will gain access to members-only area at www.ekitmemberspro.com. Sure enough, you will get “free one-on-one phone consultation with internet wealth expert”. The truth is: your “consultants” will talk you into investing expensive get-rich-quick scheme.
The truth behind the smoke and mirrors
Now let’s get something straight: the big companies mentioned in athomeincomesource.com are NOT paying people to post links on the internet. The program claims that you can earn average $15 per link, and it’s not true at all! I’d like to challenge Jennifer Smith, or the company behind At Home Income Source program to provide proof to back up the claims.
In reality, the program is actually a very basic course on affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a revenue sharing venture between website owner and online merchant. Here’s how it works: let’s say you are partner (or also known as affiliate) for merchant A. You build a website and place advertisements of merchant A on your website. When a visitor click on the ads and buy something from A, you will get commission. Many big companies have affiliate programs and they are always actively looking for affiliates.
Now don’t get me wrong. Affiliate marketing is a legitimate way to make money online. I personally earn a comfortable living promoting other people products in health niche. However, it’s not easy as it sounds. You have to build the websites and convert the visitors to customers. If you don’t make sales, you don’t get paid.
Additional warning signs
On the order page of athomeincomesource.com, you will see few logos of security seals. None of the seals are clickable! As well, you will not be able to find any contact information on the website. I did a check up on the domain name, and found that it’s registered in UK.
Don’t be a fool. Save your money and stay away from this program.
