Avoiding Scams

A lot of people get scammed on their journey to achieving online success. Actually, 90% of people that buy an internet marketing product feel that they have been duped. This gives the industry a bad name, and that does not sit well with me.

That is one of the reasons I created this site, to help you avoid SCAMS. There are a few ways to detect a scam, and all of the reviews on my site are based on these indicators.


1. Video Sales Page: If you visit a site that contains nothing but a video on the first page, it is generally a scam. Product owners that force you to sit through sale pitches lack the substance to give you any helpful content on their site. If there is only a video, then chances are the product is a scam.  

2. No Contact Information: If a company doesn’t offer you an easy way to get ahold of them, then you should not give them your business. If you are able to contact support but you do not receive a response, you are better off not making a purchase.

3. No Support Offered: It is always a good idea to test a products support. Legitimate products will always provide timely external support and respond to any questions asked. If an email goes unanswered for up to 48 hours, I recommend you steer clear of the program.

4. A 60-Day Guarantee: If a sales page continuously emphasizes a guarantee, then chances are, it is a scam. In particular, a 60-day guarantee usually means that it is a clickbank product. Clickbank products tend to be of lower quality. 

5. Continuous “Upsells”: If a product tries to get you to buy and buy and buy, that’s a bad sign. An “upsell” is the practice of using a low initial price for a product (as bait), only to offer continuous purchases for furthering the product. If you are not careful, you could be duped out of thousands of dollars to complete the product. This is why I recommend “try before you buy” products only.  

6. Ridiculous Claims of Success: Remember, if you want to make real money, you are going to have to treat working online as a real job. Success in any field requires hard work. There is no such thing as “get rich quick” or “overnight success”. If a product offers you either of these, run for the hills.  

7. Promotion via Another GURU: If a guru is advertising a product that they do not own, it is a scam. The reason a person would promote a product is because they are receiving similar advertisement. “You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.” Sometimes people will promote a product without ever having looked at it.

8. Fake Pictures: People that need to showoff are lacking in credibility and their product is often lacking in quality. This is another example of “get rich quick”. It just doesn’t happen.
