Learn The Daunting Truth About Finding a Genuine Ad Posting Job

Updated on January 28, 2015

A Talk On Deceitful Businesses

About 10 years ago, there was a company (I will not mention the name) that started a huge string of these types of businesses and believe it or not, they are still around and still in business as usual. Surprisingly to me, they are still in existence, even after they were banned by PayPal and other credit card companies they used to use. I'm sure this was due to the thousands of complaints they have had on the internet. These websites are extremely impressive looking and anyone would be shocked to find that these businesses are frauds. Unfortunately, many complaints against them began erupting on sites like,Rippoff Report,Complaints Board, and many more like this, all stating the same thing. These sites "Do Not Pay".

To make a long story short, you have to really do your homework before joining a work from home program like this or ANY program for that matter, especially when a fee is involved. The good news is, yes, there are some ad posting programs that do really pay. They're just not that easy to find when having to shovel through a haystack.

Below I will provide you with some ideas on how to properly check out any "Pay per post" type of business. Unfortunately, there is only so much one can do to be sure anything online is genuine, but thanks to the internet, a lot of these businesses have been reported by hundreds of victims. This certainly makes the search a little less daunting to look up and it helps to use that quality information to base your decision on.

Steps To Finding Real Ad Posting Jobs

Since I can remember, I've come across ads online that market the phrase "Real ad posting jobs", which sounds very appealing. However, there are multiple obstacles you can come across when trying to find a real ad posting job that will actually pay you for each ad you post. The first problem I've seen is, most of these ads are very misleading. Some ads make it sound like something it's really not. A common event that happens is, once you go to the website, you can sometimes end up paying a fee for some type of training program for the ad posting. Then once you begin the so called job, all it really ends up being is affiliate marketing. For those of you who don't know what affiliate marketing is, it's just basically a commission based business opportunity rather than an actual job, at least not one that pays an hourly rate or a flat fee per project. That doesn't necessarily mean it's bad or a scam. The only thing it means is you are not going to get paid for each ad you post like you expected. It means you'll only get paid if the ad you posted earns a sale, and that's really the ONLY way you will earn any kind of money with any affiliate job.

A common problem people often come across, with a specific online job search, is figuring out which one is really legitimate. Imagine possibly doing endless work for a company or even worse (paying a fee), then getting ditched by that same business that never had any intention of paying you or anyone else for that matter. These are the two worst scenarios - 1) Someone profits off of your hours or possibly weeks of grueling work, or 2) They just take your hard earned money and run! Now that is the definition of a scam artist. I really dislike using the term "scam artist", because I feel it has a tendency to be overused and abused in many situations. However, this is a situation where it definitely would apply. Now there are a large group of pretty well known businesses that actually promote these types of small marketing projects. Most companies who promote outsourcing and ad posting work are very firm on telling you they do in fact pay per ad and there is no commission work involved. That means, no selling, no clicking and no recruiting. These businesses are seen all over the place. The problem is, which ones should you take a chance on joining? Which ones are real and which ones are the common fraudster? Some charge a registration fee and some don't charge anything, but, either way you can lose, whether it's money, or a lot of your personal time. You could basically end up providing a lot of free marketing for some dishonest company thriving off of your work.

Tips On Making Sure A Company Really Pays People To Post Ads

1. Check the site for payment proofs such as stamped checks or any type of genuine payment receipt. (Most should have some).
2. Run a search under their website name.
3. Look for video testimonials (Good sites should have video testimonials) Written ones can be easily faked.
4. Use basic common sense. First look at the amount they are offering to pay you ($5 an ad sounds a bit ridiculous!)
5. Email the company and have a conversation with them. I notice most fraudsters do not like to talk to their victims and usually do not answer emails.

Always use these five tips and anything else you can think of to verify the information you are looking for. This can really help you on your journey in finding the right work at home job for you.
