We all know why we are spending too much time online searching for various ways to earn money. Sometimes when you earn money, maybe a small amount, it triggers happiness as you think it is nice that at least you earned some money, but it shouldn’t be looked that way.
You are spending your precious time, electricity and energy, so any small earnings you earn will only reduce your loss by little amount.
Don’t worry at initial days, it might happen that you are online for 8 hours and all you were getting are some scam opportunities to earn online which resulted in simple failure.
Eventually you should be able to earn money in increasing amount which will show that you are on the right path.
Below are the three methods you might encounter in your search for online making opportunities, and why you must avoid them. They are tricky and not for everyone. So, decide after some time whether they are worth investing time into.
In one short advice, it is a no-go.
The concept is basically simple, you invest some money and interestingly you get some very high rate on returns. If you are lucky, you will get paid, and you might bring some referrals too.
Once they have gathered enough members, they shut down with no clue.
Their ip address is basically untraceable. And many people just move on as they had invested little amount,over there. Now, there is a second twist here. Many websites acting like they can recover money from them exist. But, their commission is usually high enough for anyone to go for it, as it is bigger than amount many have invested.
I am saying this from my own experience. They sounded legit, looked legit but they all are scam. Any HYIP which emerges only shuts down at some point of time scamming everyone.
Stay away for your own sake.
2- PTC or anything similar
Now this one is legit, but a time waster. Basically you need to view some ads, click on something, do some human verification task (so bots can pass by), view some videos, and all you get is some cents which doesn’t even add up to $1 for 1 hour.
Another interesting story here is they only have 5 minutes of work daily, so you need to work for more than 12 days and still not sure if you could have earned that $1. But, they payment threshold is like $5 or $10. The only way to earn from it is to refer like thousand people and hoping they do it everyday and so you earn something.
They are actually interested in you getting more members and thus you all do work and after sometime abandon them thus resulting in them being in huge profit.
Again it is from my experience, please stay away. Not really an opportunity.
Note: I did get paid like $3 in a span of 1 year, I worked less frequently, but still I worked more than just mere $3. Also there exists many scams also under this name where they offer like $10 per view, but they are simply scam. Stay away from both legit and scam.
3- Anything legit which asks for upfront money
Some legit opportunities could be find on freelancer.com or elance.com like writing, photoshop, web designing and many more.
They never ask money for joining them, they are free, you work and they act like law to make sure you get the money from the person who has assigned you work.
If you are contacted directly by someone who is willing to give you work, then ask for some cash to start work and then after full work, ask for full payment.
Companies offering positions like virtual assistant, writing jobs don’t ask for payment to join them. It is free 99 percent of the time. Some legit companies ask for payment for verifying your background, but that too is refundable. Such companies are basically one with huge brand and presence offline too.
So next time you need to pay a fee to join, any sort of fee, just pass on. You need not pay for employment.
These are the top three earning opportunities which often comes when we search for money making on the web. Simply stay away from such things, okay.
Singing off, hope you enjoyed and learnt something too.
