Making money from the internet is so easy, everyone can do this!
Doesn’t this sound familiar to you?
Yes, when you are working as an online writer, you’ll hear these talks all the time.
Hello, friends, I recently got invited to attend a business meeting, presented by a local internet marketing company.
To talk “Money From The Internet”.
I was intrigued with the topic… So, I came to the party… Plus, it was free.
To be honest, I was a little excited to attend the meeting,
I want to learn how others make money from the internet, besides “writing”.
The speaker was 10 to 15 minutes late. That’s not good.
I don’t know about you, but when someone late for their business presentation. It’s always bad!
I was thinking to myself, “This Money from the internet” might be a scam.
Finally, the presentation started, and yes, the discussion was about,
Tired Of Scams And Pyramid Schemes?
Make Money From The Internet
It took more than 5 minutes for the introduction… including all the hype about getting rich with the internet… working little time… making easy money from the internet… blah… blah… blah…
Then came the important,
The “How they can help you make money from the internet?”
This company will build you a website, for a fee, that will generate unlimited passive money from the internet!
Are you kidding?
Making millions just by owning a website!
I just could not believe what I was hearing… This is a scam!
Making money on the internet is easy, but not that easy!
Things got even more interesting…
“As an investor, you don’t have to do anything. Everything will be handled by the company… just sit back and collect the monthly check.”
OK, now we are investors… no more online business owners.
Want to know the investment price?
Only, $4,999.99 for everything… your own online business that could generate millions…
This sounds like a reasonable investment, right?
No, this is an internet scam…
There was very little information about the way you’ll be making money from the internet…
The presenter just kept on repeating,
“This is an opportunity for you all to make millions on the internet. Don’t you want free money from the internet? You need to get in right now. We can only take on a few more investors…”
The entire presentation was a marketing hype to sell web designed services… or just a website.
Then came the question and answer session… I had to get involved… I couldn’t just sit there and watched this internet scam going on.
So, I asked, “Can you tell us exactly… How are we going to make money from the internet?”
Yes! That’s a good question! He replied… Well,
“Our website promotes high ticket investment products that millions of people are searching for online every day… When someone visits your website and purchases the products, you make money from the internet!”
“This sound like affiliate marketing?” I asked.
(If you are not familiar with affiliate marketing, you can read this article Affiliate Marketing for Beginners.)
No, not exactly, because you don’t have to sell anything. We do all the selling for you.
OK, then can you tell me the name of the products?
Well, I can only disclose this information to member only…
I felt very uncomfortable and visibly upset with his answer.
I don’t believe making money from the Internet, that easy, as you just said.
Can you give us some example, how we make money from purchasing one of your websites?
There are a few ways, he replied.
First, this is like getting,
Free Money From The Internet! He continued…
The website is already set up for you… you just have to add in your personal information… a few contact info to make the website yours.
When someone searches the internet… they discover your website… they interested in the products we offer… they make a purchase… you earn money!
Isn’t that simple? He asked the audience.
A big laugh of approval.
OK, I have heard about getting free money from the internet, but isn’t this like doing online surveys?
(The only way that I know people getting free money from the internet is by joining survey sites. I have written an article, Get Paid To Do Nothing, described why website owners willing to give free money to recruit new members. But, you cannot make a full-time income from these websites… This is Coffee cash!)
No, our website has nothing to do with surveys… You cannot make a lot of money with surveys… He smiled.
Yes, I agree with you on that… I smiled back…
I heard you can make big money with advertisers.
Make Money From Internet Advertising,
He paused… as if he was thinking hard on the topic… then the presenter continued,
it’s too much work… Yes, you can make a lot of money from advertisers… This is how online and digital news makes their money,
but, not us, we are offering products… not information!
(True, advertising is the big money maker for an information website, like mine. This is how online writers make money. Starting an information website is probably the cheapest and easiest way to make money from the internet because you already have the tool, you can write!)
So, this is an online retail website? I asked.
No, and yes…
(I was thinking what you mean No, then Yes!)
No, you as the website owner don’t have to deal with handling and processing the products… So, it’s not an online retail business for our investors.
Yes, we’ll handle everything for you, accepting the orders, processing orders, and even collecting the money.
This sound like drop shipping… I replied.
Ah… I’m… don’t like to call drop shipping, because…
A young man in the audience jumped in and asked,
“How can we set up a business meeting with you?”
That was the end of my questioning with the presenter…
I didn’t know who the young man was…
I believed, he worked for the company.
It is the normal technique for scammers to get the crow to involve and silent someone like me.
A lot of people started asking the payment options, how they could get involved?
They were all excited to hand over $4K for an opportunity to make money from the internet… without knowing how, when, or where the money comes from…
I just couldn’t believe those looking smart and educated people fell for this internet scam so easily…
Is this normal?
Is this how you invest your hard-earned money?
Just because someone tells you, “Here’s the way to make money from the internet… and you are ready to hand over thousands of dollars without a question!”
How do I know this entire “Make Money from The Internet” presentation is a scam?
Because to make money on the internet, you have to work more than a few minutes a day.
I am a writer… It takes me at least two hours to write an article… when I know the topic well… If I must do research, it can take over a day…
Many people want to make a lot of money, but don’t like to do the work… This is how internet scammers get their money.
“Everything is done for you!
Sit back and collect the cash!
You don’t have to do anything!
That’s how easy to make money from the internet!”
All of this is a scheme to scam you.
If you want to make money from the internet, the least you must do is to learn how?
To start my online writing business,
Yes, I know how to write,
But, I have to learn how to write for business.
No business will pay me just to write… I have to write, what the client needs or wants, which is content marketing…
The online writing business is the simplest and cheapest to start, but you still have to learn the process of writing money content… That’s the difference between a writer making a lot of money from the internet vs a broke writer.
Until today, I still could not believe those people…
Lined up to hand over $4,999.99 for a chance to make money from the internet.
Do you think any of them make money?
Would you be investing if you are at the meeting?
This is just one story of the internet scam!
