Watch the video below and stop the work-at-home mom scam. Online marketing has created a phenomenon called Cost Per Action sometimes known as Pay Per Action.
CPA is an online advertising pricing model. I guess Google was the first to implement it.
In this model, the advertiser pays for each specified action which can be a purchase, a form submission, or something of that nature, that is linked to the advertisement.
Many successful online folks who blog and market their services use it. Presumably they make good money with it. It’s just one of the so many ways of marketing your product or service. The bad experience comes into play when you click on the link and an obvious or not so obvious scam gets displayed on your screen.
Remember the age-old adage: “If it’s too good to be true, it usually is.” English not being my first language, I always wondered what it really meant. My friend from the 60s said, it simply means “If it’s too good to be true, it is not true.”
If you are a regular Internet visitor and have clicked on a daily basis, you must have seen a link to an ad describing how a work-at-home mom makes thousands of dollars a month. And the ad will always show a mom in your neighborhood.
I always wondered how the heck these people know where I live. I still don’t. I assume they look at my registration with the ISP (Internet Service Provider) and that’s where they get the name of my hometown. They must have developed a script to find my hometown on the spot.
In a Nutshell
Internet is a free market that you enter at your own free will. Anyone can “play” on it. But watch out for scams like this. Scams are all over the World Wide Web. It’s up to you to search for scams, read the reviews, recognize it, and then stay away from it.
In any case, these are all scams as the gentleman by the name Harlan Kilstein in the following video will tell you. He will tell you to stay away from a scam like this. You would find many ads with a little variation like this one. Work At Home Mom Makes $7,197/Month Part-Time. One more time. It’s a SCAM.
