Online Income Review (The Little Clue Others Missed…)

Welcome to my Online Income review!

I'm glad you are doing your researching before just plunking down your hard-earned money.

I've been reviewing products online for quite some time now, and I know that many of them are out just to get your money, and not actually help YOU make money.

Online Income Review

Is Online Income the same?

They claim that you can make money just by posting links. But what does that mean? What is it all about?

I'm going to tell you all about this product.

I also noticed something interesting that other reviewers seemed to have missed. A little clue, of sorts. 

You'll see what that's all about a little later.

For now, let's dive right into this Online Income review.

Tired of disappointing or scammy products?

I've got ya covered!

What is Online Income?

The Online Income sales page starts off with this bold promise:

Online Income guarantees you'll make money?

Because I've reviewed these types of products over and over and before I even see what this product is all about, I can already tell you that it's going to get a big thumbs down.

This is a crazy headline.

You're not going to make $500 by watching the video.

And it's not guaranteed.

But let's continue on and see what other lies this product tells us.

The video starts with some testimonials. These people claim they've made $2,000 in 10 days, $1000 in 24 hours, and $8000 in one day.

Online Income review - testimonial, plus a clue

Here's that interesting little clue I mentioned. 

We'll come back to that later.

The video goes on to claim, once again, that they can guarantee easy and proven income - $379 a day or more - working from home.

"Karen" tells us how she worked two jobs, just to pay the bills, but she was laid off of her full-time job just a couple of days before Christmas.

She decided that the didn't want to work any regular job, and she didn't want to do online work that required any special skills or knowledge. She found her dream job soon after. And now:

Online Income offers easy work?

Karen claims she's now a millionaire. Working just 1-4 hours a day. Riiigggight, Karen.

Karen says she's been called the top work at home consultant in America. Surely if this were true we would be able to find Karen through a simple Google search, but there is no such Karen Daniels that I can find.

Karen tells us what this opportunity is all about.

Sort of.

She says that one of the most in-demand opportunities is link posting, which she says is literally just posting links on the internet. She says companies are desperate for people to do this. 

Companies are desperate for people to post links

Karen claims that posting one link takes between 3 and 4 minutes and you can post approximately 15 links in 60 minutes. The average amount you make per posted link is $15, so you can make $225 in an hour.

Oh:

If ONLY it were that simple, Karen.


How Does ​Online Income Work?

Karen gives us a slight idea about how this works. She says that all we need to do is post links and companies will pay us for our service.

Sounds great, right? Who wouldn't want to do that?

Not so fast.

That's not exactly how this works.

I have written about link-posting before. You can check out:

What Karen is actually talking about is affiliate marketing. It's what I do, and it's a 100% legitimate way to work from home. (If done the right way, which we'll talk about soon.)

Karen sounds like she's trying to imply that companies will hire you to post links for them.

What really happens is that you sign up for affiliate networks (for instance, Amazon Associates is an affiliate network) and you promote that network's products on your blog or YouTube channel, and when someone buys the product through your special affiliate link, you will get a commission.

An Affiliate Marketing Example

Let's say you're looking for a baseball bat for your kid.

You see a blog post that compares the top 10 baseball bats for kids.

You buy one of the bats through that blog post.

The blog post owner will make a commission.

The baseball bat manufacturer is happy because he got a sale, the blog owner is happy because he got a commission and the customer is happy because he was helped to pick the best bat for his kid.

Affiliate marketing is a really great business model. For all involved.

But Karen isn't being upfront with you. You don't get hired by companies to do this, you go out and sign up for affiliate networks and you put a lot of work and time and effort into it to get customers to come to you.

You don't just post 15 links and make $225 in an hour.

You post a lot of helpful content, connecting with the people who are looking for it. Eventually you can make good money, but it doesn't just happen on a whim. (If it did, I'd be all over it. Trust me! lol)


Is ​Online Income a Scam or Legit?

Dude, I am not about to waste $97 to find out the ins and outs of this program. I know enough just watching the sales video that I don't really want anything to do with this. 

With that said, I don't feel comfortable calling it a scam for sure because I haven't tried it out myself.

Thumbs Down

There are definitely some super scammy things about the sales page though, and that's why I wouldn't trust this one bit. Maybe you'll get some sort of training on affiliate marketing for $97, but, based on the shady sales page, I would venture a guess it's not going to be good training.

Online Income Review - Pros

  • There is a 60-day money-back guarantee (They also guarantee that you'll make $500 by watching the video, so take their guarantees with a grain of salt.)

Online Income Review - Cons

  • "Guaranteed" income
  • Outlandish income claims
  • Saying that businesses hire people for "link posting"
  • Saying you only have to work an hour a day to make $225
  • Using a fake product owner name and pretending she's a top consultant

About That Clue I Mentioned...

Remember above in the image I pointed out a clue?

Well, it looks like the name on that image up there is Matt Lloyd.

I found that to be interesting because Matt Lloyd is the name of the creator of an online scheme called MOBE, which was shut down by the FTC.

Now, I don't know if that was just a generic screenshot that was used for this sales presentation (which means the testimonials are faked - no surprise there), or if Matt Lloyd actually has something to do with this Online Income product (which means you should be extra cautious).

Either way, that clue just adds to the fact that you should stay away from this one.


Learn Affiliate Marketing the Right Way

As I mentioned, I am an affiliate marketer and it's a "job" (I hate to call it that because it's so much better than a job) that I love to do.

I gave you a little snippet of what it's all about above.

It's a really fantastic way to make a living, if you can put the work and effort into it and not expect to make a lot of money right away. It takes time to build up something good, but it's worth it!

I certainly would not recommend learning about affiliate marketing from a shady site like Online Income. Instead, I'll point you to my #1 recommendation. This is the site that taught me how to put this very website together.

They can teach you, too!

And they have all the tools and community support that you need to build a solid website.

Check out my review and see everything they have to offer, then decide for yourself.


Conclusion

Should you spend $97 on a program that may or may not teach you about affiliate marketing?

No.

I wouldn't. Because you don't really know what's lurking inside that member's area until after you've spent the money.

Should you learn about affiliate marketing and all it has to offer?

If you like the idea of it, then absolutely!

Here's a review of the training that I recommend. They have everything you need to get started. You can even try for free to see if you like the system, and see if you like affiliate marketing in general.

You have nothing to lose, so why not?

I'm Christina, and I hate cubicles. I started affiliate marketing as a path to freedom from the rat race. My mission is to guide others to that same freedom by showing them how to create an income online. Read more about me here.

    Wow, that was a good catch. It is interesting how you find those sorts of little clues when you really pay attention. I feel like some of these programs make a tiny screen so that you can’t really see the stats and fake testimonials properly. 

    That makes what they’re saying take over your thoughts more than what you actually see. I’m glad that you caught this and exposed this program for what it is. 

    A scam and I can’t blame you for not wanting to try it out. Thanks for sharing and I hope you help people find the real way to make money online.

    • Christina Piccoli says:

      My pleasure, and I’m glad you enjoyed my Online Income review, Marlinda. These guys are tricky, tricky, aren’t they?

  • Jennifer says:

    Thanks a lot for the very thorough and comprehensive review post.I was doing some research online to earn money online and you know very well. I came across your helpful review post and got helpful insights.I am well aware that nowadays so many people are digging our hard earn money and as a result we don’t get anything. Its really great to hear that there is a people like you standing out and post a review about this “unhealthy” product. A walk-through on what I see on your website definitely help me very much. I loved how easy the review makes it for readers and this is on my list. Great work keep it up!

    Best regards, Jennifer 🙂

  • Andy Zeus Anderson says:

    I agree that Online Income is a real stinker. It sounds on the outside like a high ticket spam and scam program where people give their hard earned money and time to follow the process and burn out all their social accounts, and e-mail contacts getting banned and blacklisted while alienating friends and family. Just when it seems they are ostracised the reality sinks in that they haven’t made even 1 penny. Keep up your honest and great work.

    • Christina Piccoli says:

      Hahaha, it sounds like you may have been there at one point. (I have too, which is why your description is so funny. It’s funny because it’s true.)
