Work At Home Programs To Avoid Like The Plague

Aug 17, 2007
Internet marketing is chock full of ways to make money online at little or no cost to you. There are hundreds of work at home programs that can earn you extra money while working from home.

However, many of them are schemes and products that will only having you spending money instead of making any. They were designed to make the owner rich, and only waste your time and hard earned money. Avoid these work at home programs if you really want to grow your work at home business and earn pure profit on the Internet.

You may have heard about this work at home program. You may have even tried them before. Paid surveys are nothing but a tedious, time wasting way to make almost no money online. They will pay you almost nothing, if they pay you at all.

Why settle for peanuts when you can be earning $100 per sale with a high paying affiliate program? The only people that make money from paid surveys are the owners who are paid by the huge marketing research companies to handle the surveys you spend hours on for hardly any money.

I have tried many paid survey companies and most either dont pay or pay very little.

Lotto and Free lotto

Now you and I both know that no one actually wins at these lotto games. Dont even bother hoping for those nice winnings because it will never happen. These systems are designed to at most give you a little payoff just to keep you playing and spending.

You will end up spending way more money on lotto than you will ever make. For even less time and money you spend on lotto, you could have a solid and growing online business bringing you commissions again and again.

Contests and Instant games

Games are another big time and money waster. Again, just like lotto. If anyone was cashing in on these free games then the sponsor would go broke. They make money on ads they place around the games online, but just like paid surveys, the possible money you can earn makes this another big a waste of time.

And contests. Only one person wins each contest and it is highly unlikely to be you. The time you waste filling out these forms, even if you do it like I did with an auto form posted like Roboform (which is useful in affiliate marketing and other ways as well) you hardly ever win anything besides a lousy $10 gift certificate or runner up coupon.

Again, dont waste your time on these fake instant game or contest sites. You are much more likely to succeed working with a high paying affiliate program.


Not only do online casinos waste your time by not winning you any money, you will most always end up losing money. This is not to mention how addicting and a problem casinos can be. Be careful with your money and do not fall for the get rich quick idea of online casinos.

If you do, you are only going to help the casino owner make money. After all, he knows how often the system will pay back the players and do you think your winnings are in his favor? Of course not, the casino owner is only out to line his own pockets with your hard earned cash.

The occasional $5 or $10 you win is not worth the hours of playing and cash burning you are doing in the process. Your time is MUCH better spend. Use your time and money wisely and dont throw your money away for free.

Besides, who has money to just give away? Invest your money and time in higher paying affiliate marketing programs and you will see the light. You will also see that affiliate programs are where the real money is being made and not in the 5, 10, and 15 dollar winnings in the previously mentioned and so called ways of making money online.

With affiliate programs, people are earning on a daily basis commissions upwards of $70, $100 and even $175 per sale working from home. You will see results much faster without having to depend on some system that was programmed to give you money when and if it ever decides to. Instead, become the master of your own financial future and build your own real work at home business.
