4 Toxic Affiliate Marketing Scams You Have to Avoid

Honest Internet Marketing Product Reviews

I've run a profitable internet marketing business for years, providing agency SEO/SEM services, running affiliate sites, etc... For over a decade the affiliate marketing industry has been spammed with fake, positive reviews so that the authors could cash in on quick commissions by falsely recommending products, and although the landscape is balancing out a bit it's still abominable. That's why I started http://StoppingScams.com - it's my attempt to put an end to internet marketing scams.

6 Things that Dropshipping Gurus Do Not Tell You

Hey guys!
Some of you might know me; I'm Richard from the blog Do Dropshipping. I'm interested to see what Reddit thinks about my dropshipping "gurus" rant 😉
I will copy most of it below (sorry I can't do images, but I try to make it readable), so it won't look like I try to get anything out of it. I won't include a link to my post either. Also, these are my opinions. If you got a different view, then let me know!

1. There is a chance that this isn’t my fancy house and car

Alright, I think you know already what I mean with this, but just to be sure, in most of these videos of these “gurus” you will find a fancy car, house, or maybe a tropical destination (or all three). You will most likely see this either in their intro or in the video itself.
You might be thinking now, but Richard, these cars, houses, and fancy holidays all look great! I want them as well.
Yes, I totally understand; trust me.
But following a person online just because they flash you all these expensive items or experiences isn’t the best way to start a business. (More on why that is below)
But why are these people flashing with all these expensive things then?
Well… Honestly?
Obviously, I’m not 100% sure because I’m not one of these dropshipping “gurus”, but my number one guess is this:
They sell you the idea of getting rich, so they can get rich with the money that you spend thinking that you can get rich.
Get it?
Are they faking their fancy cars and houses?
I won’t talk about this one yet because I'm not sure who owns what and who doesn't, but you should know these things:

2. Dropshipping is easy? Why do I keep saying that… It’s a real business!

The thing that most of these “gurus” don’t tell you is:
It isn’t all rainbows and gold pooping unicorns
Look, dropshipping isn’t some magic way to earn thousands of dollars online. Dropshipping is just a business model that helps companies with testing out a product without purchasing thousands of them in bulk.
With dropshipping, you can sell a product one by one without needing to go to a bulk supplier and ordering in huge quantities. This is great if you’re not sure yet if your product is going to sell or not. You don’t risk sitting with leftovers of your products if you find out that nobody wants to purchase your product.
Starting a dropshipping store is the same as any other eCommerce store. It requires you to learn different things (or you hire people for it) like digital marketing, design, copywriting, and so on.
But the thing that you need to understand now is that starting a dropshipping store is like starting any other eCommerce store; it is a real business!
It isn’t a gold pooping unicorn, as I said above. You will need to spend time creating an awesome experience for your store visitors.

3. The reviews that I get for my dropshipping courses are honest and not at all based on my affiliate program

I hear you thinking: “But Richard, look at all these online 5-star reviews. It looks so promising.”
Let me tell you a little secret. It’s called ‘Affiliate Marketing‘.
This means that these websites that are promoting these courses will get a commission when someone purchases something (in this case, these dropshipping courses) through their link.
This on itself isn’t a scam or anything, but this means that they could be biased while reviewing the course.
Like what would you do if you got one of these review sites, and you review a course which is $1000, and you will get 50% of it ($500)?

4. So if I press this, then I can fake my income screenshots? Awesome…

There are many fake gurus out there who post photoshopped screenshots and fake sales.
This way, they try to make you believe that dropshipping is super profitable and that they got rich off it. (And you can do the same if you purchase their course)
Also, a screenshot of sales of let’s say $50,000 a month may be real, but that’s not all profit either.
They might be spending $40,000 on advertisement and product costs.
So their profit margin is around $10,000 a month, which is still not bad for not holding any inventory, but a lot less than the $50,000 profits that they showed off with. I suggest watching this video to learn how they fake their income screenshots

5. Wait, so I sell a course with everything I know, but you can find all the information on the internet for free?

Most of the information that is provided in these paid dropshipping courses is recycled “crap” that is either taken from another course or from any other source on the internet (like blogs or YouTube videos).
They lure you in with the things that I covered above (their fancy cars, saying dropshipping is easy, promoting dropshipping as a get rich quick strategy, their (un)biased reviews, and some even do it with fake income screenshots).

6. Learning from mistakes? No way, just purchase my course…

One last thing that these dropshipping “gurus” forgot to mention is that you NEED to make mistakes.
You will need to learn so many new things like how the dropshipping business model works, creating ads, eCommerce in general, and so on.
And you will probably make a lot of mistakes while learning more, which will probably cost you money.
But that’s great! It’s great to make mistakes, and if you don’t take it from me, then take it from this amazing quote:
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something. Neil Gaiman
Let me know what you think, and remember, these are my opinions. If you got a different opinion, then let me know 😊

No, the $99 Battle Steel plates are not "good to go". Here's why.

I see someone asking this question pretty much every time I visit the Body Armor General on /k/. Some poor college student, who really shouldn't be buying gear considering their current financial situation, curious if a plate carrier off Wish and two Battle Steel plates are "good to go" for protecting the very long future ahead of them against the hordes of TP-seeking bandits during the Wu-Tang Flu epidemic.
No. Battle Steel plates are absolutely not good body armor. They're almost a scam, hugely dependent on influencers and paid youtube "reviews" in order to move stock.
If that's sufficient for you, close this tab, open a new one, google "RMA 1155" or "Hesco 4401", spend the extra $80 or $100 for a set of 2 plates, and rest easy knowing you bought inexpensive, NIJ certified, and quality body armor plates.
If that isn't sufficient for you, read on.
The Marketing
Battle Steel Level IV armor plates seem to be an incredible value. They're level IV "tested", thin at .8 inches, light weight at 5.5 lbs and are just $99 per armor plate. In comparison, the cheapest US made, NIJ certified armor plate is 8.3 lbs, $135 per plate and 1" thick.
Wow! Surely this is another example of the innovative, forward thinking Chinese industry doing something American workers can't- providing higher quality goods for a lower cost.
The Ugly Truth
All of the claims above are highly dubious or are hints that this plate is extremely sub par.
1). Lack Of NIJ Certification
Just as with AR500's steel plates, these plates lack a true NIJ certification. They claim to be "tested" at HP White Labs, but what level of testing is done and how often testing is done is not known. It also isn't known if plates are drop tested, tested for heat and durability after being soaked in water, etc. Regardless, these plates are not being randomly FIT tested (follow up inspection test) by the NIJ to ensure that all the plates being sold are actually up to par. Furthermore, absolutely no information regarding backface deformation or ballistic testing (beyond the "AP" testing) is given to the buyer.
2) Marketing
Surely someone will now post the video of MrGunsandGear shooting at the Battle Steel plate to prove it is "gtg". Which is a nice segue into my next point: these plates are heavily reliant on marketing.
Youtube videos- often with affiliate links or commissions if one purchases from a link the Youtube channel provides- are not scientific testing. Not only are these tests incredibly easy to fudge, even on accident, but they cast a large shadow of doubt and mystery. Are the plates being beefed up? Adding thickness, extra material? Are penetrations being cut? Are tests being done with reduced velocity ammunition or ammunition (such as varmint rounds) not likely to penetrate the plate? How about testing with SBRs? We know that FPS Russia used a short barrel rifle to "test" an AR500 plate, even though the velocity of a heavy bullet coming from such a short barrel would likely lead to a stopped round. In contrast, a 16" AR firing m193 would penetrate.
In many "tests" so far, the plate has been allowed to simply "free float" and is not adequately stabilized, allowing the plate to absorb way more energy than is realistically possible simply by allowing the plate to move backwards when struck.
3) Potentially Reduced Strike Face
You may have noticed a .5" "border" or "ring" around the edge of these plates. These "rings" are TYPICALLY indicative of foam being used around the edges to make them less fragile to being dropped, but it's also a way to cut weight. See, if you were to do what most manufacturers do, and put full ceramic material from edge to edge- meaning you have protection from edge to edge- you would add a considerable amount of weight.
By using foam of questionable ballistic property (read: none) you can massively cut the amount of weight of the plate. After all, you've gone from what is essentially a 10x12 plate to an 9x11 plate of actual protective material, and the rest is just foam.
4) Plate Thickness or lack thereof
Most people would be excited to hear about a thin plate. Most NIJ Level 4 certified "standalone" plates are around 1" thick, all the way up to 1.20" thick. This thickness comes from not just the protective material, but also padding on the rear (wear face) to protect the wearer from further injury in the event you are hit in the plate. NIJ 0101.06 certification requires that a plate "deform" (or bulge) no more than 44mm, which, ideally means a very small statistical likelihood of serious injury.
The Battle Steel plates are too thin to be padded properly- because there is no padding. They are thin enough to be comparable to "in combination with" plates, such as military issue SAPI plates that require a soft backer to get the full ballistic rating and provide sufficient padding. In fact, one video (link below) shows no padding at all, just ceramic in between a layer of kevlar on either side.
5) Weight
As we discussed earlier, a potentially reduced strike face, lack of padding and other issues are why this plate is as light as a $700 Level 4 plate.
6) Crude QC and Chinese manufacture.
I shouldn't have to dwell on this very long. I have nothing against the Chinese personally, but extremely shady business practices are very common with Chinese manufacturers. And the fact of the matter is, the Chinese aren't running a charity. These plates are cheaper for a reason. They lack an NIJ cert, lack padding, may be more fragile and are built in the land of "good enough". They're also being made by underpaid workers and quality control may be non existent.
There is no reason you can't go the extra mile for a properly made and regulated plate.
Now please stop asking.

Shark Tank Keto Diet Pills: The best way to Place a gimmick

Back July, we created a YouTube video called, Biggest Keto Fraud Possibly! (SHARK TANK KETO SCANDAL) and we have been absolutely astounded by the answer.
At the time of recording our next aspect to the video clip, we experienced over 300 responses from people who possessed either almost been cheated with this business, or who possessed unfortunately not viewed our video before acquiring these capsules and misplaced hundreds of dollars.
Precisely What Is this Shark Tank Keto Swindle?
Should you be on social media marketing, then you have observed ads for the groundbreaking Shark Tank Keto Diet Capsules or the awesome slimming tablets Sarah from Stanford created to melt excess fat appropriate off your body. If the appears to be too very good to be real, it is because it is…So, what weight loss supplements had been on Shark Reservoir? The fact is that these supplements were actually never on Shark Container (or Dragon’s Den for those of you who stay international) nor managed Melissa McCarthy, Kevin Smith, or Chrissy Teigen lose fat using them.
These s0-named Shark Tank weight loss pills certainly are a low-cost, 800 mg BHB tablet that will have zero effect on the body. Individuals are dropping for your superstar weight reduction pictures and boasts of quick weight loss, purchasing the cheap free trial version, and getting their a credit card billed a lot of money. Along with the most awful aspect? Most people aren’t even receiving the product or service. Contacting customer service is out of the question and the best way to get them to stop charging your greeting card is always to plain end it.
How come Individuals Dropping with this?
With extraordinary before and after images of famous people like Kim K and Meghan Markle, 5-celebrity reviews on Amazon online marketplace, content from trustworthy reports sites like Us Regular and Fox, and even airtime on TV demonstrates like Shark Reservoir all endorsing this system, it seems like both an effective and genuine product or service. That will be the truth if any one of their “evidence” was correct. The websites and reviews are faked, the pictures are taken, and the claims are simply is.
This company has even went with regards to to either endorse or develop a artificial health supplement assessment internet site. We had been contacted by https://classifieds.usatoday.com/marketplace/shark-tank-keto-pills-reviews/ when it comes to looking at their instructional keto articles. Soon after dealing with their internet site, practically nothing looked uncommon for any review website. After all, they already have around 100 product critiques, breakdowns, and academic content articles plus they all appeared moderately medical. It appeared genuine until we study their site about the PureFit Keto supplements, that are the identical Shark Tank keto scam supplements).
This assessment was extremely biased and completely incorrect. The author explained, “When I attempted it, I saw a noticable difference in under 1 week. Ketone marker pens were up 14.4Per cent above my non-additional baseline”. There are numerous issues improper with this assertion:
•800mg of BHB is not really enough to result in an increase in ketone amounts
•A 14.4Percent boost of any .1-.2 mmol standard would only improve from .1 to .11.
Additionally they attempt to cover up the gossip of the business stealing money from consumers by saying, “We also want to street address an issue that is claimed online where some buyers were actually automatically rebilled right after their initial order. From everything we can tell, this was no problem on the company’s area, as those clients had mistakenly preferred the registration package available.” We certainly have examined the keto weight loss supplement websites and so they don’t possess any choices for month-to-month or even a one-time registration. They can be just payment folks automatically and then for much more than the presented price.
This review then gone with regards to to try and delegitimize the boasts that this item is a gimmick by declaring, “It seems over a tiny probable that from the mostly unregulated keto dietary supplement industry, players from contending goods are behind most of the scam chat.”
The writer with this review then advocates acquiring the product or service and includes an affiliate weblink. Web sites this way hide their debt intends around legit, technological information and facts to attempt to construct believability across the merchandise.
What Products In The Event You Be Aware Of?
When analyzing these tablets, we understood it had been not only one merchandise being sold. Each and every time you simply click their website link, the take-up webpage is for a brand new keto bodyweight-damage tablet, with a very different brand and packaging, nevertheless the very same statements, outcomes, and pre and post images. Read about some brands of your tablets we certainly have found so far using this Shark Tank keto fraud:
•PureFit Keto
•Keto Fast Maximum Natural
•Keto Tale
•Alternative Satisfaction Keto
•Keto Superior
•Keto Max Shed
•Keto RX
•Envy Naturals Keto
•Extra Apex Keto
•Maxwell Keto
How Do You Prevent Sliding for Scams Like This?
Here are some quick tips for steering clear of any keto weight loss pill scams:
1.BHB is just not efficacious under at the least 3 grams. You are unable to suit this quantity within a capsule kind, so attempt to avoid supplement sorts of BHB.
2.In case a item states to have remarkable results, be sure these results are mentioned. If there are actually no studies to demonstrate its consequences, it probably doesn’t actually have any.
3.Do your research on trustworthy internet sites. Use PubMed or Google Scholar to locate posted documents on ingredients. Learn what dosage you need for that product to work.
4.Get in touch with respected resources. You could always DM on Instagram or Doctor. Ryan Lowery on Instagram and ask for assistance.
5.Distribute the phrase! Simply because you simply will not fall for this fraud, it doesn’t suggest that someone you know or really like will not likely. Let’s spread the word there that the item is a scam and preserve as much individuals as is possible from your frustration and lack of hundreds of dollars.

The U-Factor

What is the true factor that makes the difference in the different internet marketing strategies?
If you want a home based business or a work at home job, chances are you have done a lot of searching on the internet. Let's face it, the internet is the place to be if you want to make money.
You have, most likely, read about many different opportunities. You have followed the words and suggestions of some of the web gurus. You have looked at this internet marketing strategy and that affiliate marketing opportunity. Maybe you have gotten confused.
You have wondered to yourself, "is this legitimate or just another scam?" Can I really make money on the internet? The answer to your questions is yes and no. On the internet, just as in the physical world, there is a bit of everything. There are many choices and many different people looking for choices.
There are many types of people surfing the net in search of opportunities. They are always looking for that perfect, just right, magical, special opportunity. For example, there are the "window shoppers". The look at every new opportunity, read all the websites, read the reviews, they have them all bookmarked. Maybe they have gone to websites many times. Maybe they have even gone through the order process, just to see how it works. This person hopes and wants but will never take that final step.
There is also the info junkie. This person wants and hopes and, in fact, takes action. The info junkie gets everything hoping it will make him rich. More times than not, this person suffers from paralysis of analysis. Reading, assessing, double checking, and wants to know everything to the infinite detail before actually doing the business. They want to know everything first from the books and DVD's piled around doing nothing but collecting dust.
Next, there is the "jack of all trades". This person jumps at every opportunity to make money. Their inbox is full of emails from all the new and different ways to make money online. They have so many bookmarks and favorites they forget which are which. The grass is always greener on the other strategy. These people know a little bit about everything when it comes to internet marketing. They go to forums and make posts as an "expert". It is too bad. This person might be able to succeed but they have no time to get good at anything because they are spending all their time trying to manage excess.
I once saw a cartoon, in which, a man was hunting a rabbit. It was a very windy day as the two were running through the forest. I theatrical transport truck was driving along a road in the forest and hit a bump. The rear doors flew open and many, many hats blew out the back and into the trees. From time to time one of the many hats would land on the head of the man. He would than take on the personality of the hat, such as a policeman, a soldier, a postman.
My point in all this is that strategies of many successful entrepreneurs are judged negatively because someone can't make money with it. I say money can be made with most all of them. The entrepreneurs shares experiences and knowledge that worked for him or her. What they can't foresee when writing is the wildcard or the YOU-factor. There is no way for them to plug you into their formula.
If you are a window shopper who researches but never takes action you will never succeed. If you are an info junkie who buys the books and keeps reading and reading but never take action, you will never succeed. If you are a jack of all trades and never commit to one strategy or niche you will have problems succeeding. YOU are the main factor that determines if a strategy will make you money or not.
I am sure you have heard of Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods, arguably the best in the fields. They love what they do and strove to be the best. Someone taught them how to play what they do. They took it from there. Many people learn to do the same things but some take it and excel. The point is that with Michael Jordan it didn't matte which basketball he used or which court he was playing on, he succeeded. Tiger Woods is the best in golf, no matter what clubs he is using or which course he is on. What makes them the best is what is inside them. The YOU-factor.
You are what make the difference with an internet marketing strategy. If you have what it takes you can make anything work. You just must decide which the one for you is. You must decide which strategy excites you. You must make a decision, commit to it, and work it with persistent and consistent desire. These same principles apply whether you are starting an internet business or a conventional brick and mortar business. You take your dream; mix it with a burning desire, and then top it off with action and you are bound to succeed. http://forexmarket.site/news-66-network-marketing-why.html

The Throw Away Opportunity

Sometimes you can come across little specs of gold dust that make an opportunity out of life.. here is one for you to read.. Either absorb and use or simply throw it away!
Here is a little tip that I picked up and applied and boy does it work! A simple strategy to make money online!
Register for a ClickBank Account first of all www.clickbank.com (You could also sign up for a Paydotcom.com Account too).
Once you are signed up, head off to the Market Place and browse through the topics available on the site and get a feel for the site.
Once you are happy with the layout and content, find something that is relevant to you. Preferably something you know a lot about and also ensure (this is essential) that you choose a product that is the TOP product in it’s category.
At this stage, do not even bother with anything else, that can come later!
Take time to read the web site it takes you to. Reach the point where you know your way around this product as if your life depended on it..
If you can afford it, by all means purchase it! Right, now you know all about the product and you perhaps bought it, let’s look at how you can profit from someone else’ work with no web site!
Start a report about this product.. cover the following points.
Offer hope to the reader… let them know that there is a solution to their problem and that all is not lost just yet.
Make sure you remain unbiased towards the product.. do not come across as ah, just take it or leave it, but do not sound desperate!
Be authoritative, do not dominate them or bully them (although sometimes this works:)
Make them feel that you really know your stuff (preparation will ensure this). Be a figure of trust (this is HUGE). Come across as a scam artist and they will run away from your report quicker than you can say Buy Here!
Give them a reason to buy… (Many people miss this one out). This is the nut clincher… If you studied sales of any kind offline, you will know that you can be the best information expert in the business but if you do not ask for the sale, you will never graduate to salesperson! (OK, so I kept it politically correct.)
Once you finished your report, put a resource box at the bottom.
A resource box looks something similar to this:
A N Other Is a Florist in the Amazon and has been studying Flanker Plants Online for 18 years. Read more about this book “Amazonian Water Retainer Plants” here: {insert your clickbank ID right here}
OK, so it’s not the best resource box in the world, but read a few articles on some article directory sites and you will soon know what I mean! Now you need to get your report out there!
So go visit as many free article submission sites as you can find.. Trust me there are thousands of these sites (big craze). Then start submitting your article to these wonderful people.
Some will have guidelines (so read them) others will be instant acceptance, others may ask you to sign up, some may take a while whilst a “real” person reviews your content!
(BEWARE: Some article directories do not allow affiliate links in reports or articles, so at this time it is best to NOT submit your article to avoid disappointment.)
If you want to go really wild, you can purchase a cheap domain and then simply forward to the product you reviewed!
Anyway, continue your submission to all the directories that do allow you to include affiliate links. Try to vary the report slightly for each submission you do (it’s OK to submit the same article to all the directories, but it is great for you if you vary them slightly – more info on this in a later article on this site..)
Now once you have done that… Start again from the top. Review another product in a similar format and then start the submission process all over again.
In a few weeks time, you will be earning around $50 - $100 per week with this method if you do it right!
Now there are other ways, better ways and even fantastic FREE ways to take this to the next level.
But if you are looking to get started quickly, on a tight budget and can resist clouding your day with all the other hype, this I promise is a fast track to making a small amount of income from the Internet! http://forexmarket.site/news-66-network-marketing-why.html

I almost got scammed during my job search on Indeed during COVID-19; here's how to avoid the same situation

So yeah. We're all in the same boat pretty much, due to coronavirus it's been significantly harder for me to find a job because I'm essentially competing against 13.3% of the USA's population in a grim job market that's worse than it was in The Great Depression. I have been picking up new skills and retouched my resume, only applied to jobs that actually matched my skill set, that good shit.
2 days later I'd received a message from one of the jobs that I had applied to, letting me know that due to my resume, I was being suggested for a different position for Admin/Office Assistant, and that I had to write a short cover letter to someone named Melissa - who probably doesn't exist by the way. I was excited and no obvious red flags had gone off yet. Maybe this was because at this point I was desperate to just find something so I didn't have to worry about possibly starving and or being homeless anymore (due to medical conditions, right now working would basically be consenting to my own, early death). So yeah, everything's going smoothly. I type up a pretty solid cover letter and send it.
There's no interview, nothing. At this point I get notified that hey I'm hiring you but I'm not going to be in the country so I can't meet srry :(.
Hello and thanks for your response, After the review and consideration of your answers to the questionnaire your application is successful and you have been accepted to work as my personal assistant/CSR Personnel, I would have loved to meet you before we start but I'm currently out of town for an important business in Toronto Canada and i won't be back until 2 weeks but i currently have work for you to take care of, so i want you to start immediately and when I'm back, We will setup a meeting so as to discuss further on briefings and your tax documents.
The real kicker
NOTE: You are not required to spend your personal money to make this purchases, I will also provide you with the funds to handle the shipping/cost of the above equipment. Working for me with the provided equipment is very necessary because there is a wide range of software installed on the system to protect data, ease duty, also enhance speed and accuracy of any work you're doing on it, The special features also calculate the number of hours you work daily so that i can ascertain the bonuses that will be given to you at the end of every month.
Please provide answers to the following schedule.
  1. How many hours are you willing to Work per day?
  1. What time range? If you wish to work more than 5 Hours per Day, then let me know.
  2. What is your phone network carrier?
  3. Payroll Interval? (Weekly or Bi-weekly)
  4. Payroll Method ? (Check or Transfer)

IMPORTANT : Kindly RE-CONFIRM your Name, Address & Phone number the funds should be issued to in other to handle the shipping/cost of the equipment and your sign on bonus.
  1. Name...
  2. Address/ Apt No...
  3. City
  4. State...
  5. Zip Code....
  6. Phone # home....
  7. Cell #....
  8. Email.....
Okay, weird. At that point I was thinking to myself that something definitely isn't right. I had checked out the company website and it appeared to be legit, the build could've been better though. I then checked their BBB ratings and that's pretty much when shit started getting really janky. The fucked up part is the fact that to my knowledge, this is a legitimate moving company. Pretty much all of the reviews were complaining that there was either an issue with billing or the actual products.
The worst part is I did search indeed.com job scams, and unfortunately apparently this one isn't new, someone encountered the same scam with the same job position being offered, same pay, same stories, just different company and people. Scrolling down that thread it became very evident that other people had either almost fallen victim to or ended up actually getting scammed. The issue with this is that to the unsuspecting person, this is worded well enough to the point that it won't come across as a possible scam until they're giving you the job offer without an interview. Either that or maybe I'm just really fucking stupid.
Its scary because these people are literally preying on others in their most desperate moments.
So yeah TL;DR if shit seems too good to be true it probably is. Always make sure to research a company, if it feels like a scam it's probably a scam. I know times are really hard right now but please, please don't send these people your personal identifying information in the hopes that it's not a scam. Shits hard right now but it'd be a hell of a lot harder if you got your identity stolen, phone number sold, bank account hacked, etc.
Edited to include:
Phone carrier: This is a huge red flag and a scam tactic that scammers will use to find out what phone carrier you're using - look up phone carrier scam/fraud, its pretty scary. No legit hiring company will ever ask which phone carrier you're using as part of the onboarding process. In case you don't want to Google; basically what they do is use personally identifying information and pretend to be you, when contacting your phone carrier they request a new Sim card, or act like they want to switch.
Even though they didn't directly ask for my banking info, they did ask for just the name alone as well as potentially identifying info that they could use to call and have my password, phone number, email, address, etc reset.
My guess is that they probably would have had me fill out a fake tax document in order to get my SSN, or ask for my SSN up front so they could fill it out on my behalf.
Last edit is I've watched too many kitboga and Jim Browning videos to not recognize that format in asking for identifying information. If you don't know who they are and like watching scammers getting scammed their videos are pretty entertaining, although Jim Browning's are more in depth.
Also when I say research, I mean actually research. I'm questioning now if this company is even real/did they just create a website, or are they doing a common tactic where they pretend to be affiliated with or employees/employers of said company? I'm 76% sure that this company is probably a scam due to the fact that there are multiple BBB complaints with billing issues, on their site they say they were founded in 1994, but then their yelp description states this:
Established in 2002.
Since 1994, our movers have provided over 20,000+ relocations worldwide and maintained a A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau. We're a successful family owned and operated moving and storage company that is located in the Metro Detroit area and has moving trucks all over Michigan.

Not to mention multiple Yelp reviews of people saying that yes, they did show up but they either literally robbed them, damaged their property, or grossly inflated the original price. So yikes.

Chris Green Offers Moldy "Social Proof" to Teach Outdated Methods to the Gullible for Merch by Amazon and KDP

So yesterday was the deadline for his challenge. Couple days before was FOMO Sunday. Pushing in his FB group and showing off a $70K check from early days (Create Space) of KDP. From . . . wait for it . . . 2014. Wonder what kind of shelf life he thinks that "social proof" has. He'll probably be still touting it decades from now when he's bald and toothless, and of course still saying Merch is in its infancy.
Link to excerpts from that thread here. Names of the innocent heroes smudged and those of gurus not. But initials of innocent heroes used as they often appear multiple times. (Mod note: don't mention their full names if you know them from that thread.)
Chris Green doesn't actually do Merch by Amazon or KDP in a real way, and never has
He was in at the beginning, and should be in nosebleed tier by now. But he's not. He should be applying the dated methods of yesteryear for his own accounts and making solid bank if they still work, but he's not. He's just using methods of past years that no longer work, showing stale "social proof", and touting outlier results of others based on other methods, huge adspend to get small net revenue, and cheating.
His marketing methods:
  1. Years ago spend a fuck ton of money to launch a book, for the purposes of touting such a service and for years of passive "social proof" profits to use in scamming.
  2. FOMO (fear of missing out) + urgency.
  3. Stale social proof from someone who can't do what he teaches. And said social proof being only gross revenue rather than net of expenses to pump it up for scamming.
  4. CDE (controversy drives engagement) +get rid of critics by deletion and banning.
  5. Deflect and ask for proof of those asking him for same, and tout the lifetime, i.e. not recent, results of others.
  6. Get nuthugging friends to come in with own results of yesteryear.
  7. Then get gullible on a live w/o critics and close the scam. He is banking on their desperation, gullibleness, and being "inspired", as well as their laziness in researching what is the reality of today's conditions.
  8. Scam only for $37 because this is a top funnel scam designed to suck the sheep in, who can later be pulled through a series of challenges, offered other stuff and ofc affiliate commission links. Then after extracting the LTV (lifetime value) from those sheep, go find more for the next click funnel round.
Highlights and lowlifes: [my emphasis added in bold - plus some light spelling/grammar corrections]
(LW) Old cheque no?
(CG) From back when they send real paper checks. Everything is digital now.
(LW) So how is yur earnings compared to 14? Show us numbers with proof.
(CG) This picture is literally a numbers game with proof but you don't like it.
(LW) No this is proof that you can make them numbers in 2014. Not proof you can in 2020.
(CG) This is called 'moving the goalposts'. I could show you anything and you'd want more. The Merch Challenge is just $37 but if you want to keep learning from the free facebook groups go for it. I don't hard sell or sell t the unssellable.
(LW) No I'm just saying 2014 money is not earnt in 2020 [so] stop cashing in on fools. If there was proof like this from 2020 the merch challenge wouldn't have been invented.
(CG) KDP doesn't send checks in 2020. But feel free to post your checks from 2014 or 2020.
LOL CG saying someone moved the goalposts on him. He moved them by using results from previous years not now. Then demand proof from someone not selling anything who asked him for proof.
(KE) "but if you want to keep learning from free facebook groups go for it". As they should, there's no magic info in paid groups. I've never once paid for a course and was still able to build a full time income on etsy within a couple of months and have had plenty of success on KDP as well. The only goalposts that have been moved, are the obstacles with selling that change every year (if not more often). Don't play dumb and act like the landscape hasn't changed dramatically in 6 years. You're just making "guru courses" look even more scammy.
Gold star comment there.
(YO) Fake it to sell $37 courses. If you made $70,000 why selling a course for $37? The check is dated 28 Oct 2014. Show us what you did from 2014 until now.
(CG) Fake it? Fake it? I enjoy teaching and honestly, it's more scalable as a business.
(YO) Yes teaching is more scalable as a business, that's why everyone do it. But it's hard to make this much every month from 2014 until now. (CG) Yes making real money is hard. Otherwise everyone would already be doing it.
(YO) So you rather show a result from 2014 to sell a course in 2020 rather than spending time making money in 22020, you try to make profit out of an old success. It's like Nokia trying to sell courses on how to make great phones in 2020 and show us proof of his sales in 2005. Show me what you did in 2019 and I will be the first to buy and share the course. Don't take it personally. I made $50,000 from ebay in 2015 but I never try to sell a course today. Because I know everything has changed. That's why you sound like a scam.
(CG) I respect your opinion. The analogy is different. Ebay WAS different in 2015 compared to today. I have no hesitation using this check as social proof because what I did to earn it can 100% be done today. Those that have followed me since before 2014 probably know the story of this check and the process that went into it. I specifically stopped direct deposit and switched to paper checks for this payout so that I could take this picture specifially to use as marketing (just like did Shoemoney). Are my checks this big today? Nope, because I'm not doing the same launch that led to this check.
LOL he means guru scamming is a more scalable business. And again the deflection from the conditions of 2014/5 to those of 2020.
(CG) Nothing shady and nothing to expose. In three weeks we'll see how the Merch Challenge reviews come in. Deal?
Yeah because the gullible will be glowing and overflowing with praise. Check back with them in 6 months for followup reviews you clown.
(LW) Lol comment all day long with your stupid replies. Everybody who has at least half a brain knows this is a click bait post with a 2014 cheque and nothing to back it up. It can still be made other than a few words.
(NateMc) I'm defending a good person who has helped me for 7 years. If that's stupid so be it. You're here for what? I have no horse in this race. I could care less how much you don't buy it lol.
LOL no horse in the race. So why did he comment and rush to CG's defense? Because he is a longtime CG nuthugger and fellow IM scammer who sells services and speaks at scam ecomm conferences.
(LW) Still no numbers from 2019-2020. Just a 2014 cheque.
(CG) Yes, that's all that was posted. Then a bunch of ghosts showed up making demands and bumping this post like it's their job.
(LW) No just wanting to see proof before signing up. Like anyone else would want to see.
(CG) Real Talk: this challenge isn't for you. I don't feel that there would be anything that I could provide or any amount of value that I could give that would satisfy you. You're welcome to remain a member of this group so long as you are not disruptive. Mindset matters and if you spend time looking for excuses and reasons that things won't work, you'll definitely find them.
(LW) Mate I'm not thick. I make all my money online. But and the but is massive, your reply to my last question didn't answer anything. You cannot proff that cheque can be made in 2020. You're giving false hope to people who are vulnerable to your lies. But I will leave your group as you are right it's pointless being here. I'm a member of many groups who I help and probably offer free advise better than your paid challenge.
Yeah he can't satisfy that dude because he can't offer proof from the past year that his methods still work. Not only because they don't, but because he doesn't actually do merch or kdp.
(BS) Because of what Chris Green has taught me over the years, I applied for a Merch account 3 years ago. I have sold $26,743 dollars of Merch with a Royalty to me of $4,333. This doing this very part time with NO graphic design experience. It helped me pay off my car and has put extra food on the table as a single father of two boys. If you're having doubts, this platform works. If you put in the work. Thank you Chris Green for showing us the opportunity to create a business out of nothing with no inventory & no upfront costs (the machines that print these shirts are $500K).
His initials are so good. And he spouts the entire guru scam pitch: part time and easy with no graphic skills needed, no inventory, irrelevant mention of price of Kornit printers, plus appeal to emotion mentioning he is a single father of kids to attract others in same situation. Might as well have added "this is a compensated endorsement". Plus I know his stuff on MBA and he does B2B not the shit CG teaches with "vetting demand/reversing demand" (improvecatting with theft tools like MI), and just the usual merch guru bro way that hasn't worked since late 2017.
(DH) Sorry. After investing in your merch dojo program and promises about certain things were not even remotely kept, I have zero faith in this. Have you done stuff for the community? Absolutely, however after that last experience you have lost all trust with me on delivery.
(CG) respect. Merch Dojo wasn't perfect. Hopefully can earn some trust back.
(YO) Your comment just show us that you run a scam business. You never asnwered any question, you keep jumping around. Is it hard to take a screenshot from your account? You want us to trust you? Really. I'm glad I prevent other people from falling for this scam. Sorry Mate, you sound like a scam.
Right. Honest review of the Blojo deflected and hoping he can scam him again anyway.
(RJ) I remember reaching out to you 3.5 yrs ago and you messaged me back. Then I started to design my shitty Trump design. That sold once on accident lol. Thanks man for all you do. Thug life af.
(CG) Nice screenshot! Now wait for people to call it fake and use that as their excuse. #GuruLife
HAHAHAHAHA. Endorsement from an improvecat whose lifetime results don't reflect his piss poor sales now, and who was banned from etsy for infringement and showed off that infringing disney/sports mashup hat. This is like going to prison to get an endorsement from a felon and then being proud of that.
PLUS RJ is too dense to realize that CG and Helen basically stole the challenge method from Matt and himself.
Wrapping it up
In a way you have to admire these guru scammers. Think of the thick skin and determination that they have to have to keep taking and ignoring the criticism and just keep repeating the lies. Like Merch Money Corona Helen does. Or power punch amy, i.e. Amy Nicholas. If you see her out there in the wild, she is a stone cold ruthless scammer selling courses, design bundles and aff coms. Stay away unless you hate money.
A parting pearl of "wisdom" from CG:
a pessimist is someone who thinks everyone else is as nasty as they are
Edit: formatting to make clear who one of my comments directed at.

My frustrating experience with an MLM business you've likely never heard of

I graduated college in 2018 and moved to a new city because a friend of mine offered me to stay in a spare room they had for free until I found work. I started applying to anything and everything, most of the time without even reading about the position before applying (which admittedly was my fault).
I got called in for a couple interviews really fast. I was surprised at how quick I got called in (literally the next day). I look at the websites and it's all a bunch of vague corporate jargon. I couldn't get any clear idea of what these businesses actually were or the services they provided. After reviewing the job listing, it made even less sense. Just vague, indsicriptive nonsense filled with buzzwords. The job title was "Management trainee, entry level sales - marketing executive" and the description was incredibly uninformative. The "duties" they had listed were incredibly broad and could be applied to just about any corporate desk job. And of course the listing made no mention of job requirements, preferred education, potentional salary, etc. Obviously all of that was a massive red flag but I was a naive recent grad, so I went to the interviews regardless.
I go to the first interview. They had an office space, which looked legitimate but seemed kind of generic. No big deal. I'm waiting in the lobby with a few other people and this older guy beside me (40+) gets called in first. Hes back there for maybe 4 or 5 minutes before he just walks out of the interview, looking mad as hell. That was confusing to me but hey, got to stay positive, right? Then I get called in next.
Mind you, I still had NO idea what this job actually was. In retrospect, it was obvious they wanted applicants to be clueless before the interview. I sit down with my interviewer (who was no older than me) and he starts his spiel. First thing he says is "I'm excited you're here to learn about this opportunity. I just want you to know I was once a cashier at a gas station and now I'm on track to make 70k this year". Ok. Weird way to get things going but I just let him talk.
He then goes on to FINALLY tell me what the hell the job even is. It's a door-to-door sales "position" selling TV fiber subscriptions. You don't get a salary or benefits. You come in to the office for a "team meeting" each morning, and then change to go out in to the "field"; cold calling house-to-house in an assigned neighborhood. I don't remember the exact commission but you get something like $100 per contract you sign. Which I'll later find out, on average you sign MAYBE one contract a week. And that's after knocking on hundreds of doors. Bad, right? It gets SO much worse.
He then gets a piece of paper and draws out the "recruitment map". Basically, you're in charge of a team, hence the "management trainee" buzzword in the job title. One of your biggest duties is to bring in team members, from which you get a kickback for every person you sign on and a percentage of their profits as well. I shit you not, this dude then draws a literal pyramid and describes the "advancement process". Basically, it works just like any other MLM; you hit certain benchmarks of an arbitrary team size and collective monthly profit, then you advance to the next level. Each with it's own fancy title; management trainee - senior recruiter - sales leader - blah blah blah. (I dont remember what the actual titles were but it was along those lines). With the ultimate goal of becoming "CEO" of your own branch, which I will come to understand very well as you'll later read.
I was shocked. I didnt even feel like I had just been interviewed. It felt more like a sales pitch. I dont like to be rude so I just sat through the rest of it. Despite none of it sitting well with me, I still answered the guy's questions as professionally as I could, still painting myself as a good applicant. Turns out, I did so well that the "CEO" wanted to speak to me before I left that day! Oh boy!
So I get lead down the hall to the "CEO's" office, the whole way contemplating every life choice I ever made that led me to this point. I still didnt want to burn any bridges until I had a chance to get home, do some research, and really think about it before I turned them down (just my naivety again). I sit down with the "CEO" and he is just ecstatic to have me in his office. He goes off about how they get like 600 applications a week and only something like 25% get interviews, all lies of course. He then offers me the job on the spot. I told him I'd like a day to think it over and he did not like this one bit. His whole demeanor changed. He asked me why and, being honest, I told him I didn't know how I felt about the door-to-door aspect (at the time, that's what I was most concerned about). All he said was more jargon about how "this isnt a door-to-door position, it's a management trainee program specializing in direct marketing". I insisted that I needed a day to think it over and he just condescendingly said "ok" and I was on my way.
Overall a bad experience. I wasnt feeling too confident but I still had this other interview to go to. For the sake of brevity, I'll hit you with bullet points. I pull up, get the same kind of vibe as before about the office, I'm interviewed by my would-be team leader (who had the deadest, most soulless look on his face I've ever seen), and right as the guy starts talking, my stomach sinks because I realize this is the exact. same. thing. I'm not even kidding, the exact same thing. Same jargon, same promotion structure, literally selling the exact same product. At this point, my mind was made up; I no longer gave a shit about professionalism or being cordial. I just thanked the guy for his time and excused myself, right in the middle of his speech.
I was furious in the car ride home. I felt cheated and lied to. I wasted a whole day with this bullshit. Both of these companies were the exact same but had completely different names and branding. The websites were basically identical and made no mention of them being affiliated. That's when I understood what "becoming the CEO of your own branch" meant. You literally just have enough sheep beneath you and you start your own vague, indiscript "business" to con more people in to your downline.
When I got home and did some research, I found a dozen other "companies" in my city that were exactly the same and made no mention of them all being affiliated. I even saw that the companies I had interviewed at posted job listings literally every week. They were constantly hiring new people. And the glassdoor ratings for all of these were either 1 star or 5 stars, no inbetween, which is a massive red flag. The 5 star reviews were praising the businesses for being a valuable, worthwhile opportunity while all the 1 star reviews were calling it what it is, a pyramid scheme. I even looked in other cities and found dozens more of the exact same business. One company's website I came across literally gave me an error code 404 when I clicked the "services provided" tab, LOL. In all my research, I cant even find what the parent company is called because it's so well hidden. Its sketchy as hell.
This isnt unique to just selling TV contracts either. You ever see those people in grocery stores (not affiliated with said store) acosting other patrons to try to sell products or offering free samples of some perfume? They're likely victims of the same thing. If you're interested, I've linked a documentary on these kinds of scams. It's not the same as what I almost got roped in to but it's essentially the same thing with a few differences in the process.
People need to be talking about this. This shouldnt be legal. They prey on people who dont know any better and cause undue financial burden on those that get stuck there.
obviously this isnt a traditional MLM where "business owners" are conned in to buying their own stock but it's certainly structured exactly like one and has the same culty vibes. I think it belongs here and people will enjoy reading about it. If the mods dont think this fits here, I understand if they remove it
Edit: I removed the link to the documentary in the post and put it in the comments. I don't like how it comes up as a link if it's in the OP

He is meandering if Clickbank Uni is adequate since it's just $47 every month which is far more reasonable than those top notch courses. At first, I just rapidly experience the course to check whether it's genuine yet a couple of segments grabbed my eye.

6,000 Word guide on Local biz SEO + list of 2,190 websites that accept guest blog posts + 800 SEO terms mapped out on a HUGE infographic, + other SEO templates.

Reddit Intro
This is an intermediate SEO guide. It's not super vague, but I'm also not trying to go into great detail on the more advanced techniques used for highly competitive keywords. The only thing really missing here is more information on Silos and the super basic shit you can find LITERALLY anywhere.
My goal with this guide was to provide SEO guidance for any local business as it grows and evolves. For example, you don't need a full-blown SEO strategy when you've been in business for 4 days--you can, however, benefit from having a GMB listing or single-page website.
If you want basic stuff:
Ahrefs blog post on local SEO
Moz Local SEO checklist
How is it laid out?
It starts with the most important stuff someone should be doing right from the start. Then it grows and expands with the needs of the business. It also tells you the exact pages you need to link to and where you should put the keywords to "optimize" them.
Quick note:
For the most part, any SEO optimization that is not located in this guide can easily be done through the Yoast SEO plugins. They don't give the greatest advice, but it's better than paying someone $1,300/mo to do everything Yoast tells them to do.


This is the ultimate guide to building and ranking a website. We don’t just want a website to rank though, we want to turn it into a lean, mean, lead-generating machine. My personal philosophy around business and marketing is to pick the low hanging fruit first. I start every effort as close to the sale as possible and build processes to take advantage of as many sales as I can as I move further away from the sale. What I mean, is that I always try to focus on the smallest efforts with the biggest results.
I have a feeling this is still going to confuse a lot of people. Let me give you an example: my cabinet painting company’s content.
Most people in the small business space are focusing on writing how-to guides because they think this makes them seem like an “authority” in their industry, I create case-studies. I take before and after pictures and write little stories about the projects. When someone is looking for a how-to guide, they’re looking to do it themselves. That’s not the type of traffic I want to bring to my website. That type of traffic isn’t going to convert for months--maybe even years!
Someone looking to see if you’re the right fit, on the other hand, they’re going to be looking for proof that you can do what they’re looking for. They want to see that you’re in the trenches providing the services that they’re wanting to eventually purchase. They want proof. This is why I write little case-studies about our projects and not “how to paint cabinet guides”. This isn’t the only reason I do this either. Think about it. How often do you go to a small business website to read a how-to guide? Never. You always big the big, well-known, brands with huge nationally/internationally ranking websites that you could never compete against.
So, why in the world would you want to spend time and effort making something that no one will read? That’s the question every business owner should be asking themselves. Now, I don’t want to say that it’s a totally useless effort. I’m mostly just pointing out that it shouldn’t be your main focus until the time comes when you need to make that type of content. Always start with the sale, and move backward to create a process that helps turn traffic into sales.
Now, let the fun begin.



I break all content into 3 different types: conversion, engagement, and trust. Conversion content, focuses on the immediate goal of turning visitors into sales. Engagement content focuses on drawing the customer in--to read more, click more, and dive deeper into the website. Trust content focuses on showing that you’re a credible resource of information, products, and services.
Content is a huge part of your SEO as well as your ability to turn traffic into sales. Now, the problem is that these 3 content types all interweave between themselves to support and improve each other’s ability to convert website visitors. Many businesses become confused and unsure about where their priorities are when it comes to website content. They read lots of guides online, but most of those guides cater to affiliate marketers or bigger companies that have a much bigger audience.
SEO will bring traffic to your website, but it’s not an automatic sales machine. People don’t just instantly buy whatever you tell them to buy at the drop of a hat. You need to create processes that gently lead them down the path that you would like them to take. This path consists of several different stages, but those stages aren’t definite. Some people move to one stage at one moment in their decision-making process, then move right back to the very beginning.
This part of the guide will go over those processes that help convert traffic. However you will find that throughout the entire guide I will be explaining how to bring traffic to the website so it gets converted.

Google My Business

GMB comes first

Your Google My Business listing is the single most important web asset that you can own as a small business owner. This should always come first. Before you have a website, before you advertise, before ANYTHING. Why? Because it contains all of the most important content elements in a 3rd party system (more trustworthy) AND it brings visitors to your business.
I would say that the biggest reason for getting this set up first though, is because you want to start getting reviews as quickly as possible. Your reviews are a huge part of being able to convert traffic into sales. Typically anyone that finds you through online advertising via Facebook or Google ads, will go look at your reviews and website before contacting you. I call this the background check. People want to feel like they’re making the right decision. They don’t want a bad experience and they don’t want to be scammed.
It’s also probably one of the single most important factors in local business SEO. Without your GMB listing, it will be very difficult--dare I say--impossible to rank without it. I guess it’s not impossible, but it would really fucking stupid not to have it.
There’s already plenty of guides out there on how to set up your Google my business listing, so I’m not going to go into very much detail on the basics. What I will say, is that you need a cheap option for reminding people to give you a review. SMS (texting) has been proven to have an increased ability to get people to write reviews. The problem with this is that a lot of review or public relations software services that provide text reminders cost a lot of fucking money. Instead of paying $400/mo on Podio or Birdeye, use Hopfu.

Home Page

Home page comes second

EVERY business needs a homepage, and you can get away with a lot more than most marketers are willing to admit--with a single-page website. So don’t ever think it’s an all-or-nothing type of situation. This simply isn’t true.
This also doesn’t mean that you should forever have a single-page website. As you start growing, so should the number of pages on your website. If you don’t have the time or money to build a formal website, just stick to this. I would say that it’s good to have a website though. You shouldn’t try and skimp on this. If you want to be seen as credible and charge higher prices than your competitors, a website will go a long way in making this happen.
Here is everything you should have on your website to not only improve your ability to convert traffic but to start a good foundation for your SEO efforts.
Here’s a list of everything you need. Below you will find descriptions.
-Condensed information
-Core offer
-Small contact form
-Sticky phone #
-Clear USP
-Real images
-No more than 3 reviews
-3 step process
Use this image for reference:
What is condensed information?
What do I mean by this? I mean that you should really only have blocks of text with no more than 100 words. Brief descriptions or explanations of anything that’s important for people to know. People have short attention spans and despite what everyone says, content length does not dictate a website’s ability to rank on Google. Context is key in ranking and too much content CAN destroy your ability to rank for the specific keywords you’re trying to rank. Not only that, but no one fucking cares and won’t read any of it. Remember the goal is to convert--not just have people visit your website. If you create small bite size chunks of information, then people are more likely to actually read the information. If they’re reading, then they’re engaging. If they’re engaging, they’re more likely to convert. Keep it stupid fucking simple. Make sure you have condensed information about the services you offer on this page.
-100 word chunks of information.
-Have a hierarchical tag (H2 or H3) on top of the information chunk with a topical keyword.
-If you have more than 1 page, link to the other pages that the info chunks talk about.
-1 link per information chunk.
-Copywriting is not an informational chunk.
What is a Core offer?
Your core offer is the offer someone accepts right before a sale. If you’re a smaller business, keep it to this. As your business and website grow, you can add a supplementary offer for anyone that isn’t quite ready to take the leap on your core offer. For most service businesses, your core offer is consultation/assessment/audit/etc. For a product based business, this is a “visit us”, or a “see our products” page, if they can make purchases online.
-Offer closest to the sale. Ie. Estimate, consultation, visit us, etc.
-If a bigger website/business, then create an offer for traffic that isn’t ready for the core offer. Ie. ebook, newsletter sign up, etc.
What is a sticky phone #?
A sticky phone number is a sticky bar that has your phone number on it. A sticky bar is a very small banner that follows the user as they scroll up or down on a website. Phone calls are proven to sell (literally--it’s been proven) 1000% better than forms. So getting phone calls should always be top of mind. It’s even better if you have a cute little picture of yourself next to the phone number with your name. This makes them feel more comfortable by thinking they know who they’re calling when they dial that number. Also, local phone numbers are TWICE as likely to convert than 800 numbers. It also goes without saying that you should make your phone numbers clickable on mobile. This is done with a tel:123-456-7890 link.
-Sticky bar with phone #.
-Put a cute little picture of yourself with your name next to the phone number.
-Local phone numbers convert better.
-Make your phone numbers clickable on mobile.
What is a small contact form?
For the love of all things holy, quit making your contact form super fucking difficult to fill out. You don’t need people’s zip codes, street addresses, blood types, or their mother’s maiden name. If you’re using Neuro-linguistic programming or compliance psychology to improve your conversion rate with a multi-step form, then you can start with a less threatening ask and end with their contact information. Compliance psychology has seen increased conversions of up to 76%, this however does not mean that your small business will benefit that much. The idea behind compliance psychology is if you can get someone to take small actions, they’re increasingly more likely to take big actions. If you want a multi-step form, you can use Leadformly or Jotform.
-Keep it super fucking simple. Name, number, email--nothing else.
-You can increase conversions with multi-step form with less threatening questions to qualify traffic before you get to the core ask (contact info).
What is a unique selling point (USP)?
You should always try and have a unique selling point, but when you’re a small business that isn’t making innovative wakes in your industry--this can be pretty fucking difficult. You can usually find a unique selling point by learning about your target audience. You can read good/bad reviews and learn what your target audience likes/dislikes, then take it to the fucking extreme. Do they complain about a project taking too long? Offer the “Holy hell done in just one hour” package. A company by the name WOW-1-day painting did this. Not everyone is that creative or capable of creating a unique selling point though. So what do you do if you’re one the unlucky majority? Just clearly state what you do or how you benefit others. Best place to do this is the headline.
-Can you come up with a usp? Put it in the headline.
-Not sure if you can? Read reviews of likes/dislikes, then take it to the fucking extreme.
-Least creative person in existence? Benefit or “We do X” in your headline.
What are Logos/badges?
Logos and badges are used for social proof. Social proof is used to build trust and credibility. It shows people you’re trusted by other people and companies, so you should be worthy of your traffic’s trust. The more credible your logos and badges, the better. Use Facebook and Google reviews over Homeadvisor’s, because they’re more credible. However, if you have a Homeadvisor or Upcity badge that shows how awesome you are, then use that too. If you’re a business to business company, then use the companies you’ve worked with. If you’re not solely business to business but offer commercial services, then add the logos of the businesses that you’ve helped on your commercial service page.
-Review badges/logos for social proof.
-Use awards/badges when you can.
-The more credible, the more betterer.
Why shouldn’t you use stock images?
Don’t sacrifice your looks for your ability to convert. Stock images do not promote trust, in fact they do quite the opposite--ESPECIALLY for local businesses. You want to be real and tangible, not fake and unreal. There’s often this saying that many marketers use, “ugly websites convert”. It’s true to a certain point. Huge businesses have nice looking websites and they convert really fucking well. There shouldn’t be any question that a good looking website can convert. BUT they can look good and still be real/tangible. If you want stock images, go hire a photographer and take real photos of yourself and your store. If not, do the best you can to make it look good and still use real photos. Real photos might look ugly, but they convert.
-You want to instill trust. Stock images instill distrust.
-You can still have a good looking website with real photos.
-Ugly real photos will still convert better than good looking stock images.
Why only 3 reviews?
Because people don’t trust narcissists. The more you talk yourself up, the less people will believe you. It’s well known that businesses buy fake reviews. The better it makes you sound, the less people are going to believe it because they think it’s fake. Use clear and concise reviews that preferably talk about your unique selling points or the benefits that you offer people. If you’re advertising, it’s even better if you can get reviews that specifically talk about your core offer. Also, use real people images, not that fake stock image shit. That’s the biggest way to turn people off after having read your awesome review.
-Less is more.
-The more it’s tailored to your audience or offer, the better.
What is a 3 step process?
3 step process, uses iconography to explain your process moving forward. The less mystery that people have to experience the more comfortable they feel taking action. If you have a 3 step process for your core offer or for your service, the better people will feel about taking you up on the offer or buying your service. This follows Miller’s law. I don’t want to go into too much detail, but less is more. Keep the steps concise.
Internal linking in this order:
-link to each core service page
-link to each service area/location page
-link to your blog
-link to pricing
-link to link to about us

-Your service process, ordering process, core offer process, etc.
-Less mystery = more confidence
-More confidence = higher conversion.

Product or service pages

Product or service pages come 3rd.

As your company grows and expands, you need to grow your website. Product or service pages are normally for engagement content. They answer many of the questions that your website traffic has about, well, your products or services. This is not true for any e-commerce businesses, but this guide isn’t for e-commerce--it’s for local businesses. Again, this is why so many business owners get confused. There’s so much information out there for e-commerce and affiliate marketing, but nothing for the local biz.
Your product or service pages should be organized under a /services/ or /products/ parent page. If you don’t know how to do this--Google it. You also shouldn’t have any more than 3-4 core services. Too many times do I see local businesses put every single possible service in the navigation and that’s literally the dumbest thing you can do. There’s a little something called decision fatigue. This is why landing pages don’t have navigation and they only have one offer, instead of many offers. It’s also why salesmen limit the amount of options they give you by saying things like, “are you available this afternoon or evening?”.
It works.
It also works for SEO. Too many stupid supplementary services confuses Google and can causes it to choose the wrong things to rank. Instead, you should have supplementary services under their closest related core service. What exactly do I mean by this? Okay let’s do an example. Let’s say you’re a painter. If you’re doing it wrong, your service pages will look like this:
-Door painting
-Interior painting
-Face painting
-Wall painting
-Metal trim painting
-kitchen painting
-Fence painting
Your URLs for sake of explanation will look like this: Website.com/services/face-painting
Instead of doing that, do this:
-Interior painting (h1)
--Doors (h2)
--Kitchens (h2)
--Indoor Murals (h2)
-Exterior painting (h1)
--Fence (h2)
--Metal trim (h2)
The reason this works is it adds more context to your core services and helps Google to understand what you offer. It’s also better for the customer experience. You can add small descriptions for each supplementary service with before and after pictures. You can also compare and contrast the supplementary services, level offers (good, better, best qualities), FAQs, etc.
Your /Services/ parent page should have descriptions of your core services, FAQs, and all the other important stuff that your customers need to know.
Your product and services pages are also a really good opportunity to add some story-telling and branding to your website for added kick of conversion probability. Give people an inside look of your shop and show pictures of you performing the services or making the products.

Keyword in Meta Description:
This is the description that shows up in search results under your SEO title. Keep the keyword to the left as possible. Can’t think of a good description? “Looking for a {Descriptor} {Service}? {Unique selling points/benefits}”
-AGAIN keep everything simple.
-Less is more.
-Write content that helps them make a decision. FAQs, Comparisons, Before/Afters, case studies, etc...
-Nothing shady with a clear ulterior motive like, “why you need to hire a X”. That’s fucking stupid and no one believes you.
-Link to relevant information. Pricing, portfolios, and service areas/locations are relevant to your product or service.

Service area/location pages

Service area/location pages are 4th

This is when you start doing SEO. Going to keep this super simple. Do NOT put your service area/location pages under a parent page, unless you’re in multiple states/countries.
Just do this: website.com/city/
Don’t be a trasy wanna-be SEO expert and use: website.com/service-in-city/
Typically these are going to be like your homepage, but they need to double down on material that converts. These pages SHOULD be attracting people that are the most likely to convert, therefore, you should treat them as such.
-Core CTA
-Real photos of real people
-Skimmable service points (that link to service pages)
-3 step process
-3 reviews
The big thing here is you should try and tailor everything to that specific city as much as possible. Use pictures you took in that city, use advertising copy that relates to that city’s audience more than others, etc…
A lot of people think the content can’t be the same between the city pages. That’s a fucking lie. You can just switch out the city and you’re good. Not recommended, but it’s not going to kill your SEO. In fact, all of my city pages have the same exact meta description, content, anchor-text, keywords, etc-- and they’re all on the first page. I even changed things up on 2 pages, just to see if there would be a difference. NOPE. No difference in ranking AT ALL. In fact, there’s a lot of myths in SEO and I’ll cover some of them later.

About Us page

About Us comes fifth.

Your About Us page really only supplements everything that we’ve covered up until this point. If you have all the other stuff and don’t have this page, you’ll do just fine. The same goes for only having another page’s preceding page if you’re a smaller business. Again, as the business grows, then you should add more to improve your ability to convert. The bigger you are, the more the smaller nuance stuff is going to matter. The smaller you are, the less effect it will have.
Your about us should have the following:
-Our team with pics and bios
-Credentials with PDF link to your proof of license, insurance, and/or certifications. No one does this, they just say they have it--this will set you apart.
-Company story (what inspired you to run the business)
-Company Mission (why you continue to run the business)
Why is About Us important?
The about us section is important because of a little psychological phenomenon called familiarity or tribalism. People who feel like they know you, tend to like or approve of you. They’re less likely to discredit you, which is why so many parents have a hard time believing their kids turned into criminals. If they’re less likely to try and discredit you and they like you, they will buy from you. Especially if you have some kick ass content on your About page.
I’d quickly like to address hypocrisy
Don’t be a fucking hypocrite when you’re writing your mission statement. If you aren’t about customer service, serving people, making the world better--don’t lie about it. It’s only going to hurt your brand. If you’re really that much of an asshole that this stuff doesn’t actually apply to you, then spin it differently--just be honest.
Easy to follow framework for a mission statement
A lot of people know this idea, but haven’t read the book. This is Simon Sinek’s company mission framework. Start with why (your core moral/value). Next, explain how you benefit your customers. Finally, end with what you do.
Here’s an example:
I believe most content sucks ass and I want to change that. I’m not a great writer, but I can still do this by going into great detail AND explaining why you should do the things I’m telling you to do. Above all else, I’m just a badass content marketer.
How to write your business’ story?
If you want to go all out, then do this: start with your hero (you) going on a journey, that finds a guide, faces a big decision, then triumphs over evil by doing good. You don’t necessarily need to do this, but it definitely won’t hurt if you do.
Here’s an example:
I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur, but didn’t have the confidence to really go through with it (relatable hero on a journey). One day came across an opportunity like no other--my friend was selling his business (the guide)! I bought it from him in hopes of getting my feet wet in the business world. It was a steep learning curve to say the least and I faced a lot of adversity like quitting my job without a single dollar in my savings account (big decision). In the end, despite all my obstacles, I’m here today. The owner of a wonderful business that I can call my own.
It’s even better if you can really make pain palpable.
Why you should use your real credentials
Don’t just say you’re licensed, bonded, and insured. Whip it out and slam it on the table. Show them that you actually are. Not a lot of people will even look at this stuff, but anyone that does will be impressed. You’re different, you’re real, you have nothing to hide. With proof comes confidence and with confidence comes spending. Upload the PDFs to your websites media storage, then link from the about us page to your certificates and licenses.

Blog comes last

Your blog is for SEO. However, you can also use it for case studies and other content that affects SEO less, but converts more. You should definitely focus on the content that converts more when you’re first starting out. As you’re building your business and expanding your reach, maxing out your other marketing channels and moving into the SEO space, then you can start building other content that builds your topic relevance. No one is going to write your how-to guides if you’re a local business. Even if you’re a B2B business like a web designer or whatever, what ends up happening is you attract business owners that want to do everything themselves or will let you do all the hard work, then fire you.
The architecture of your website is super important for bigger businesses, but as a small business owner, you probably hear how imperative it is for you to do the same. The thing is that the more information your website has, the more you need to put into files and categorize it in order for Google to make a quick understanding of what your website is all about. The smaller the website and the more niche it is, the less important this becomes. However, we’re still going to go over proper silo-ing.
The silo set up
The smaller the business, the smaller the silo--which is good for you! First, you’re going to make categories out of your core products or services. Then, you want to make subcategories with your supplemental services and other related topics. You should have at least 5 posts for every category or sub-category, so make it count.
Smaller Site example:
Category: /Interior-painting/
Blog Post: /kitchen-painting-guide/
Link: website.com/interior-painting/kitchen-painting-guide/
Bigger Site example:
Category: /Residential-painting/
Subcategory: /Interio
Blog Post: /kitchen-painting-guide/
link: website.com/residential-painting/interiokitchen-painting-guide/
Don’t do this:
Category: /guides/
Sub-category: /how-to/
Why shouldn’t I do that??
You don’t want to use words that are too broad and aren’t immediately relevant to your main category topics. Having the main category as a random, not immediately relevant, the keyword will throw Google for a curveball and tank your rankings. Basically any main category you make tells google that your website is about that category. So if you have Interior painting and exterior painting categories, that tells Google that you have a local painting business. If your main category is "guides", then that tells Google that your website is about guides. But which guides? How to make margaritas? How to make guides?
It's better if you have the main category as /painting/ then have /guides/ as a subcategory, but it's even better to use a word that's more relevant to the topic such as interior painting or exterior painting.
If you’re an affiliate website, then you would turn a page into a category page and add it to your head navigation. For example: /monitors/gaming/best-gaming-monitors-review
Physical silo
When you separate words into folders /like/this/ it's called a physical silo. It's not enough to just tag your posts with categories. You need to put them into folders by going in and adding the categories into the perma-link.
Internal linking:
-Link categories to subcategories
-Link subcategories to individual blog posts.
-Link where applicable.

Dispelling a few SEO myths right of the bat

SEO is full of myths. I think this is because people watch like 3 youtube videos and become experts in their fields. It really is that bad. The other reason for this is people who are actually pretty good at what they do--affiliate marketers/black hat SEOs. Black hatters are people who try to manipulate Google to try and rank with little to no effort. Google is always trying to get rid of them, so black hatters come up with all kinds of ridiculous rules that they think apply to SEO.
Speed optimization
It's seriously not as important as all these nerds make it seem. Divi theme is notoriously hated by SEOs because it's slow. Jokes on them, because websites built with Divi still out-rank them. One of the world's biggest advertising agencies, Strawberry Frog, uses it--as well as many other large companies. Just cache your page with WP Rocket and optimize images with Imagify.
That's literally like 99% of speed optimization. The other stuff doesn't do anything. Google only uses your 'time to first paint' as the only speed metric used in its algorithm. I've literally halved my speed and waited a couple of months of not touching NO INCREASE IN RANKING.
The word ‘natural’ is one of the most overused terms in SEO. So is ‘diversity’. Google is a series of algorithms. It’s not some human closely looking for ‘natural’ links. It would need a really sophisticated algorithm to determine what is and isn’t natural. The hilarious thing is, what most SEO’s call ‘natural’ is a million miles from what naturally really is.
Anchor Text
For starters, diversity is not natural. Neither are exact anchors, LSI anchors and certainly not anchors like “click here”. Legitimate sites have an overwhelming number of brand anchors, followed by url, with a few lsi mixed in. When have you ever been reading a blog post, and you see a link to an external site as “click here”? Or “visit this”? “Click here” is a CTA on sales pages. Not an anchor for external pages.
The only time you’ll see diversity, is where there’s been SEOs at work.
Natural Link Profile
The next thing is, there is NO such thing as “a natural link profile”. What’s natural for a news site, is not natural for a local plumbing business, or a forum, or a blog. So saying you need comments, and nofollow this and that to diversify and look natural is gross over-thinking.
Every type of site is different. Natural links for blogs will include comments. Although these aren’t “natural”, as such, they’re “natural” in that the blog owner isn’t trying to get backlinks by commenting, but rather build their brand.
Basically, there is no overall “natural” link profile. The closest thing you’ll find to natural is that most big sites have 50 to 90% brand/url anchors. Usually brand is the dominant one, but sometimes url.
Google would have to build some sort of topic/site based link profile heuristics and try to determine what’s natural for say “blogs about insurance”, and “forums about insurance”, then “insurance companies”. Then the problem is how does it get the seed lists for all those categories? What if it starts with seeds that had SEOs working on them?
Any SEOs want to argue with me? Argue with Ahrefs instead.
How Google REALLY Works
People grossly over-complicate SEO and what Google is capable of. In a small test environment some interesting things can be achieved, but to roll out such sophisticated algorithms worldwide on their index would be chaos. Look at how much trouble they had with penguin and panda. It’s taken them years to improve, and panda/penguin aren’t that complex.
Google only looks for simple triggers. 1000 new backlinks a day on a fresh site? 80% exact anchors? Penalized.. Extreme cases of things.
The SEO industry is full of hogwash. While the SEOs who spread this ideology have no hidden agendas, they’ve been brainwashed by the industry into thinking all this crap needs to be done. It doesn’t. It’s all crap.

What DOES Work (the only backlinks you need)

Want to know what works? Contextual do-follow backlinks from relevant, powerful pages. You could build 100’s of links, all contextual do-follow, 100% do-follow, no comments, no social, no directory, no article marketing, none of that shit. You’ll rank.
As for anchors. Exact match keywords aren’t needed. Why? Contextual backlinks. Context. Google knows what the page is about. Want to rank for “best hamster wheels”? Do a brand link from an article entitled “Best Hamster Wheels”. I’ve tested this. I’ve seen jumps from page 9 to page 3 from 1 brand link from an expired site. Which keyword went up the most? The one in the title of the article with the brand link.
Want to rank on google? Just create contextual do-follow brand links from articles targeted to the keywords you want to rank for.
The other thing you’ll need as a small business are local listings/citations. You can get these from websites like bright local or Yext.
The truth is. If everyone knew this then all the SEO sellers providing big complicated services with a billion tiers and supreme ultimate diversification would go out of business.
Ranking is simple, but it’s not easy.

10 Work-From-Home Jobs For This Quarantine Period

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) was declared a pandemic, businesses across the globe shut down their offices and transitioned their employees to remote work. While employees hunker down in their newly-thrown-together home offices, one thing we might see from COVID-19 is how remote work can be successful on a large scale.
Just a few decades ago, the vast majority of work-at-home job opportunities were far from profitable. And before the dawning of the Internet, it was much harder to sort through the scams and the real opportunities.
Some of the “gotcha” job offers from the past include check-cashing schemes, mystery shopping, medical billing “jobs” that require you to purchase expensive computer software, and craft-making jobs that ask you to pony up the cash for materials before you get started. And let’s not forget about the famous envelope-stuffing scam that was nothing more than a pyramid scheme designed to siphon money from as many people as possible.
As the old adage goes: “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” But, is it?
In 2020 and beyond, the questionable work-at-home jobs are still out there. But improvements in technology and the birth of social media have ushered in a new wave of such jobs that are actually legitimate.
A 2017 study from Upwork and Freelancers Union even predicted that more than half of the workforce will do freelance work in the next decade, citing the fact that nearly 50 percent of millennials are freelancing already.
If you want to coast into the future with real skills that pay, check out these real work-at-home jobs for 2020 and beyond:

Virtual Assistant

With so many businesses operating mostly, or even completely, online, it’s no wonder that many hire virtual assistants to help keep them organized and complete administrative tasks. According to the International Virtual Assistants Association, these workers are “independent contractors who (from a remote location, usually their home or office) support multiple clients in a variety of industries by providing administrative, creative, and technical services.”
Although virtual assistant jobs vary drastically, tasks can include composing and responding to emails, creating and distributing business-related documents, responding to media and business inquiries, writing and creating content, and more. Check out virtual assistant jobs at sites such as Upwork.com and Zirtual.com.
While pay varies, virtual assistants can typically charge between $15 and $75 an hour. However, what you’ll earn depends on who you work for and the level of skill required for your daily tasks.

Medical Transcriptionist

Although many medical transcriptionists work for hospitals or physician’s offices, most are able to work at home, and at a time or place of their choosing. Since their tasks involve transcribing recorded medical dictation, a computer, desk, and earpiece are generally the only requirements after completing a postsecondary medical transcriptionist program.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), medical transcriptionists earned a national median wage of $35,720 in May of 2016, or $17.17 an hour. Although many medical transcriptionists are self-employed, many find jobs through their local hospital, physician, or community college or vocational school.


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, most translators do their work at home, and often under tight deadlines. Although some need a bachelor’s degree, the most important requirement for translators is, of course, fluency in at least two languages.
As the BLS notes, around 22% of translators were self-employed in 2016. The majority were spread among these industries: professional, scientific, and technical services (30%); state, local, and private educational services (23%); hospitals (8%); and government (6%).
The national median wage for this career was $46,120 in 2016, although the top 10% of workers earned an average of $83,010. Look for job postings for translators on sites like Upwork.com.

Web Developer

It’s fairly easy to build your own website if you take advantage of the many free learning opportunities online. However, much of the population isn’t equipped to build their own site or don’t have the time, which is why so many people make a living building websites and blogs for others. According to the BLS, around 16% of web developers were self-employed in 2016, with the vast majority able to work at home, or anywhere with a laptop and speedy Internet connection.
Even better, the national median wage for web developers was $66,130 in 2016, with the top 10% earning an average of $119,550. And you typically don’t need an advanced degree to begin working in this field. All you need is some postsecondary education, applicable experience, and a portfolio of successful sites you’ve built and managed. There are even intensive coding boot camps designed to teach programming skills in just a few short months.

Travel Agent

Although the demand is expected to decrease over the next decade, the opportunities are still there for travel agents who can harness the Internet to earn clients and help them plan their adventures. According to the BLS, job prospects may be best for travel agents who offer expertise in certain regions of the world, have experience planning tours or adventures, or who focus on group travel.
Around 15% of travel agents were self-employed in 2016, but the vast majority of the rest of them worked in the travel arrangement and reservation services industry. Travel agents earned a national median wage of $36,460 in 2016.

Freelance Writer

More than ever, writers are needed to formulate news articles, create content, and come up with creative ideas that fill the pages of nearly every site on the Internet. And although many bigger sites have in-house writers, a growing number of sites outsource their content and hire freelance writers and content creators. Writing experience is very helpful, but what you really need to get started are drive, ambition, and the ability to find a unique angle on events that happen every day.
Sites like Upwork.com list online freelancing positions, as does Freelancer.com and Media Bistro. To get hired, you’ll likely need to have a portfolio of solid work, or at least some writing samples you can include with your resume.
While writing fees vary depending on the job and the freelancer, many writers earn at least $150 per article and some earn up to $1,500 per finished piece. The BLS notes that writers earned a median wage of $61,240 nationally in 2016, although the top ten percent of workers earned around $118,640.

Social Media Manager

Almost every big business has gotten on the social media bandwagon as a means to reach their customers directly, and without paying heavily for television, print, or radio ads. But not every big business has someone to manage their social media accounts, which is why more individuals have begun marketing themselves as social media managers and helping businesses grow their online following and expand their reach.
Although very little data are available for this work-at-home job since it is relatively new, thousands of listings for social media managers can be found on sites like CareerBuilder.com, SimplyHired.com, and Upwork.com. If you have a demonstrated command of social media and a sizable following, you might even be able to get started by reaching out to companies directly and asking if they need help.
Social media managers typically earn the same as a virtual assistant, with hourly rates of $15 – $75 fairly common. Some social media managers also work for a retainer or monthly fee, however.

Data Entry

A wide range of businesses need workers to enter various data into their systems, whether that data are used to track inventory or shipments, create business plans, or measure performance or output. And since a computer and typing skills are the most important requirements for this job, many data entry workers are able to work at home, and on a schedule that fits their lives.
According to the BLS, data entry workers earned a national median wage of $30,100 in 2016, although the top 10% earned more like $45,360. Since many data entry jobs are at-home jobs, you can always find dozens of data entry job postings on sites like Upwork.com, Freelancer.com, and SimplyHired.com, as well as dozens of others.

Call-Center Representative

Many businesses need workers who can answer the phone at all hours, assist customers, and process orders or deal with returns. But since more businesses are operating online, a growing number of these jobs are going to customer service workers who work at home.
Being an at-home call-center rep requires a computer and may require specific software or equipment. A great phone voice helps as well, as does any experience in customer service, data entry, retail sales, or management. Dozens of sites list job openings for call-center representatives, including Upwork.com, Freelancer.com, and SimplyHired.com. However, you may also find listings offered by local businesses in your local newspaper.
While it’s hard to find exact pay for call center representatives who work at home, Glassdoor.com says these workers typically earn a base pay of around $30,000 per year.


Becoming a blogger is unlike any other work-at-home job in that you have to show up and build it yourself. Even worse, the vast majority of blogs make zero dollars for years as they grow and become established. In that sense, blogging isn’t much of a job at all.
However, there is a lot of potential for writers who are able to build an audience, grow their site, and find a way to monetize it and start earning an income. Some of the ways bloggers make money include affiliate advertising, sponsored posts, Google Adsense, and product sales.
Even better, owning a blog can be an inexpensive way to start your own business, with domains costing an average of $12 per year and Web hosting costing as little as $7.99 per month.

Finding Real Work-From-Home Jobs

Besides those listed above, other websites that offer job postings include Monster.com, indeed.com, Guru.com, iFreelance.com, and Freelanced.com. When searching a traditional job site such as Monster or Indeed, use keywords like “telecommute” or “work-from-home” and enter “anywhere” or “remote” in the location field.
When you start looking for work-at-home jobs, it’s crucial that you create a complete resume. And if you’ve done any online work, it might help to provide links to that work. References help, too, especially if you can list anyone who has overseen work you have done in any of these fields.
Another important thing to consider if you are a freelancer or remote worker is picking the right business credit card. As a freelancer, your money might need to go a little further than big companies’. Make sure you compare each business credit card’s cashback, annual fee, and introductory periods terms to get the best card for you.
Working as a freelancer also means your taxes are a little different. In addition to a W2, you’ll be required to file a number of other forms, depending on what type of work you do. Before you panic, we’ve laid it all out in our freelancer tax guide.

Is This Work-From-Home Job a Scam?

Even though there are many legitimate work-at-home opportunities, the scams of years ago still exist. But it’s up to you to find them and steer clear, and it’s not always easy to tell the real deal from a scam.
According to the National Consumers League and Fraud.org, there are some steps to take and signs to watch out for when you’re starting your search for a work-at-home job:
Many online job platforms such as Upwork.com also have their own system for recognizing and removing job scams. According to the site, many of them involve “employers” who try to pay workers outside the site’s payment system and engage in some sort of check or money order fraud.
Working at home is a dream of many, and thanks to technology, that dream is coming true for more people than ever. But if you want to work at home, you’ll need to research the possibilities and develop the skills required for many of these jobs.
So what are you waiting for? With the right skills, you could be working at home in 2020.
