This deal has been around for quite a few years, but I see it’s back now. It’s being offered on a TV infomercial in fact and you might have seen it. For a nominal fee, you get to choose from one or more websites (the latest one offers 10 free websites). And then you just turn on your site and make money – fully automated. Just like magic!
Magic indeed. Do these schemes work? The short answer is no. No website will make any money without some sort of marketing effort to get visitors to the site. This they don’t tell you.
And often these programs appear to be inexpensive but they end up costing more in the long run. Often the intial start up cost is reasonable – something around $100. However, after you sign up, you will often get bombarded with expensive upsells via phone calls. These upsells usually include such things as coaching packages or seminars and often they run the thousands of dollars.
These offers make it sound like you don’t have to do any work to make a lot of money. And unfortunately, this appeals to some people who still think that you can make money with little or no work. Imagine their disappointment when they realize they have to pay all that money and still have to put in load of effort.
Building a successful home based business isn’t as simple as buying a package from a TV infomercial. Like any other kind of business, it requires planning, dedication, and hard work. So don’t get suckered into those “make easy money with our website” offers.
