Internet Scams, How to Spot Them

Realize you are not alone. I have spoken with many people that are interested in creating another stream of income using the internet. There always are a few who have been "just looking" around for months even years but never jumped in due to fear of loss or fear of being "scammed".

So, how do you spot an internet scam? There are a few basic things to look for that would be red flags when researching an opportunity.

  1. The company has no product and you are just paying to be a part of it.
  2. You can never get a hold of a live person or after leaving messages they never call back
  3. Unprofessional web sites that look like they were set up by a fourth grader.
  4. Asking you for payment information just to be able to "test drive it". Last time I checked a test drive is free and you should be able to look around the site for free.
  5. Promising you income just by signing up.

These are a few things that you should look for when researching a company.

  1. Market driven products that are preferably digital. Meaning they can be put into your hands immediately.
  2. Well put together web sites and marketing software that took some time and money to create.
  3. The ability to call and talk to someone.
  4. The name of the CEO or Founder and a way to contact them.
  5. The ability to test drive the site.
  6. A compensation plan that can create wealth by working the system.
  7. A training system in place to teach you step by step how to create wealth.

Internet marketing is one of the best business models in the world. You can work from wherever you want, when you want. You are able to leverage your time, money and effort. You never have to give sales presentations. You don't have to host business presentations or product parties. You can stay FAR AWAY from hotel meetings and can leave your friends and family alone.

Remember, internet marketing does take work. However, it is a simple business model that can easily be implemented with a few hours of day. The biggest problem I see with internet marketing is the average person will not commit to do the required simple tasks that create wealth. Please, if you are serious about online income that commit yourself to finding a mentor. Find people that are already achieving the level of success that you desire and then do what they do.
