Product Name: The Work At Home Institute / WAHedu.com – Review
Overall Ranking: 2 Out of 10
Price: $97.00, $77.00, and $47.00
Owners: Stated Name is Robert Robinson
Website: Various Landing Pages all leading to:
www.WAHInstitute.net and/or www.WAHedu.com
First of all, please allow me to explain how I tripped over this product to review. I was doing research on a keyword phrase for: “moms working at home online,” and I saw this Google Ad displaying (and inferring) that I could make $3200 in a week! Wow, I thought! That’s pretty good money! So, of course, I clicked on it!
After being sent to a landing page and listening to the “news reporter,” I read the page chocked full of information about this amazing and very simple opportunity. Unfortunately, it was sounding all too familiar.
The page and the video, basically, talks about how easy it is to earn the kind of money being mentioned. It also references well-known media companies, and the site uses some sort of “Official Verified Seal” at the bottom which may or may not provide accurate information.
Overall, the landing page is done quite well. It certainly looks all “official” and “legit,” but, as mentioned, this message and marketing language was extremely familiar to me as I recently reviewed another very similar product with the same type of message. These two sites, well four now, are even using some of the very same language, along with the very same marketing and advertising efforts. In short, and in my opinion, this has to be from the very same people with the very same product that I reviewed previously. Unfortunately, they keep changing the name, using different web-sites, and are still using misleading and deceptive practices to scam people out of their hard earned money.
That product I already reviewed is known as the “Home Cash Code” (aka: Secure Cash At Home, aka: Pay Days At Home), and you can read that article by clicking on the title link.
I’m quite amazed at the lengths these people go to – to mislead people. They go to pretty good lengths, designing web-sites, using videos, integrating videos, and even paying for Google Ads! That tells me one thing – they are obviously successful in what they are doing. Otherwise, what fool would be doing all of this work and even pay for advertising if there were no sales?
OK, OK, I’ll get on with it.
The Good News?
Yes, there is good news, and if you read the article linked above about earning $3200 in a week, you know by now that this site’s owners were obviously contacted by someone with the authority to do so because they do have the required legal notice that now appears at the bottom. The previous sites reviewed had no legal notices at the time I reviewed them. So, yes, there is a legal notice. It’s buried below the fake testimonials, but the fine and light print is there. Please read the fine print on my related article: Work At Home – Make $3200 in a Week! or see the picture below.
The Bad News?
The bad news is that the posted notification appears below all the fake testimonials. Yes, I do believe in the old adage “Let the Buyer Beware,” but, seriously, this is just oozing with deception, and if you have read the fine print by now, you will realize that everything stated in the landing page is not true.
You should also know by now that they are also offering their “membership” for six months. So, the price you pay, which I’ll get to in a moment, is not a one time fee after all . Further, they also mention “coaching services.” So, before you know it, you would be “approached” or accosted, one or the two, with sales pitch after sales pitch.
Because of my experience in affiliate marketing, I refuse to purchase this product even for the purposes of reviewing it for my readers. I already know this is a scam based on my experience. I know what they are talking about is affiliate marketing, but there are good ways to conduct affiliate marketing, and there are extremely bad ways to conduct affiliate marketing. In fact, there’s a name for it. It’s called “SPAMMING!”
Yes, there are companies out there who will pay you over time for posting links – should your links bring in actual buyers. They WILL NOT, however, pay you just to “post links” on various sites that may have no content and no traffic. These people are not being up front with their target audience at all.
As mentioned, I believe they are promoting spam. While they don’t actually state or use the term “social media,” I do believe they are promoting spam by stating they will provide links and you “post” them. They are likely encouraging their members to either build email lists or just spam the whole web on various social media sites with the hopes of earning some money. This is NOT legitimate affiliate or internet marketing.
In addition to all of that, this product goes against my whole message of “building passive income and wealth.” They are, pretty much, teaching you how to become a spammer and inferring that you will be paid for your “post linking” efforts. They are not talking about specific ways to teach you anything about internet or affiliate marketing or how you can build your own blog site that will allow you to benefit many times over from the work you’ve done once. They are not telling you any of that, and they are not even using the correct term “affiliate marketing.” They instead use the term “posting links.” These people are banking on the likelihood that you are new, that you’re trying to learn, that your gullible, and if you hadn’t yet noticed the fine print, that you can be easily fooled.
ANOTHER CONCERN IS NOW RAISED:
In reviewing this product, yet again, I tried to find someone who actually purchased it to corroborate my assessment. I did find someone, and not only did his opinion corroborate my thoughts, I found out something else that was disturbing by reading some of the comments on his blog.
Apparently, there are those who purchased this product. Some were even contacted later, and peppered with questions such as: What is your social security number? What is your level of income? And, Are you married? …Ok, folks, this is getting quite creepy, to say the least.
Please understand, and please forgive my message in all caps: UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU PROVIDE YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, YOUR DATE OF BIRTH, YOUR MARITAL STATUS, OR YOUR HOUSEHOLD INCOME TO PEOPLE:
- You do not know
- Have no valid and/or legal reason to ask
- Have just sold you a product – especially on the internet
- Seem pushy, aggressive, or insistent
- Tell you how much you could earn, but you’ll need to pay for additional coaching, etc.
If this were a legitimate product, and you paid with a credit card, why would anyone ask you for your Social Security Number or other personal questions?
WHO IT IS FOR?
As with the Home Cash Code, The Secure Cash At Home, and Pay Days At Home, these people are targeting newbies who are only trying to learn how to earn money from home. They are banking on the ignorance of people trying to learn – plain and simple.
Some may argue that you may learn something, sure. And, some people may learn a lot. Some may even have no problem just posting links on the internet even if they figure out they are spamming sites, and some “may” even earn some money. But, to earn $3200 a week from 20 minutes a day is just absurd. There is no easy money. There is no method of just “posting links” and receiving large checks in return.
And, seriously, if you truly wish to learn, there are much better ways to spend your money. There are much better educational sites that do teach you legitimate and honest ways to earn money from home.
WHO BENEFITS FROM THIS PRODUCT?
Who benefits from the “sale” of this product are those who are selling it. They are profiting so much that they are now paying for Google Ads to reign in even more people.
TRAINING / TOOLS OVERVIEW
I did not purchase this product, therefore, I cannot provide any information regarding the training or tools related to the product itself.
I did not purchase this product, therefore, I cannot provide any information regarding the support of the product.
The male voice in this video portrays himself to be Robert Robinson, the owner of the product being offered, and he does state that those who purchase the product will be able to contact him via email after the purchase is made. However, I cannot verify this information as I did not purchase this product.
Similar to the other sites already discussed, the initial price is $97,00, then after trying to leave, the price drops to $77.00, and after trying to leave for a third time, the price then drops to $47.00.
FINAL OPINION / VERDICT
My opinion is that this site is extremely similar to the other sites’ messages. It’s the same format, and it uses much of the same language. All are totally misleading and deceptive. As mentioned, there are ways to actually learn internet and affiliate marketing, and you can earn even passive money over time from your one time efforts – instead of being fed links to post, or spam, social media, forums, email lists, etc. like a mindless zombie. While I have no problem with products that actually educate its members, I do have a problem with misleading and deceptive practices. In short, this is not a legitimate method of teaching anyone how to go about earning money from home.
For those who do wish to actually learn how to build their own viable business and actually learn a legitimate and honest way to earn money at home with internet or affiliate marketing, please check out my review of Wealthy Affiliate. Please know that, yes, I am a member. But, I wouldn’t be a member for very long if I thought it wasn’t receiving the value I expect from being a member.
I initially joined Wealthy Affiliate in February of 2015, and I recently became an annual member. The value I receive far outweighs the cost of membership, and I recommend it for anyone who truly wishes to learn how to work from home.
The Work At Home Institute’s landing site is using misleading and deceptive practices, and it may even be used for further fraudulent practices if, in fact, buyers are later contacted and asked to provide additional personal information.
