Product name: Stay at Home Revenue

Product owner: Michelle Withrow

Website: stayathomerevenue.com

Price: $97, after discount $47

Verdict: Not recommended

 

Link posting opportunity has been promoted on the web for a few years now. The number of sites promoting it is over 10 and the number is still growing.

I even decided to write a separate article to list all these link posting scams in one place so others can know and spot them easily and this way it’s much easier to help folks understand what all these link posting scams are all about.

All these programs make the same outrageous claim that you can make $77, $87 an hour or $379 a day by posting links for big companies by spending 60 minutes a day and they claim that companies like Walmart, Amazon, Google, Bing, Yahoo are their link partners.

And believe it or not but you are going to become a certified link posting agent 🙂

Pros of Stay at Home Revenue

  • No pros

 

Cons of Stay at Home Revenue

  • Over 10 sites promoting the same crap
  • Link posting agent profession doesn’t exist
  • No information about the product
  • Outrageous lie
  • No real support

 

Inside the product

1. The first sign that points to all these programs being the same link posting scam is that they all claim that their certified work from home opportunity has been featured on and supported by such giants as CNN, USA Today, MSNBC etc.

famous-channels fake-news

It’s true that the amount of people making a good living from the comfort of their homes has grown dramatically in recent years and this number is still growing and it’s because internet allows them to earn enough money staying at home and doing what they love to do.

And it’s true that these news giants feature work from home opportunities in general, but they have never featured any of these link posting scams mentioned in my article above. BTW, look at the screenshots taken from these sites.

They all use the same video to prove that their program has been mentioned there. And here is the exact same video from YouTube. Please watch it for yourself and see if any of these link posting scams have been mentioned in the news.

I think this fact alone is enough to make a decision regarding Stay at Home Revenue scam.

 

2. Another problem as I said above is that all these link posting scams are in fact copy paste sites that are absolutely identical and if you look at the images and have a sense of humour you will admit that the whole thing really doesn’t look good. It’s ridiculous, silly and even I would say insulting.

3. Another interesting fact is that you are always promised to make the same amount of money as a certified link posting agent by spending the same amount of time and by doing the same type of activity. Just imagine, how can it be possible?

 

4. Another red flag to watch out for is regarding the actual product that they all promote on their websites. It’s not clear what they promote, no explanation, no description, simply nothing.

Some of these programs claim that you will post links and get paid immediately, up to $20 per link, some claim that you are going to be an auction list agent.

The latter one is just a nonsense. Some of them though advertise the same opportunity but in fact once you get access to the members area you will realize that they teach you affiliate marketing or CPA courses.

As for affiliate marketing it’s a legit business model and all you have to do is create your own website, choose products available online, for example Amazon.com products, write some content for your products, i.e. description, add your affiliate links and start promoting them and make money.

As for CPA, it’s almost the same but in this case you don’t need to sell products. Just promote them, get your visitors to click your links to complete some actions, such as filling out forms, or downloading a software and then get paid by CPA networks. Though it looks easy, it’s not easy at all.

It takes time and effort to create a website, write content for it, promote it across the web in order to drive traffic, i.e. visitors to your website and finally make money. It’s a long process that takes one full year in most cases to see real results of your online efforts.

 

5. Though some of these programs promote legit business model such as affiliate marketing or CPA, their training material is not as good as it needs to be to provide you with all the required skills, knowledge and support to be successful online.

Besides, keeping in mind tricky methods they all use and a lot of false promises they make I really can’t recommend any of these programs.

 

6. The idea of easy money has been very popular on the internet and many folks still believe that as opposed to the real world internet allows to make money on autopilot with a few clicks of a mouse and programs like Stay at Home Revenue and the like take advantage of this idea to make more money off of naive people.

They want you to believe that by spending 60 minutes a day you can post 15 links, $20 per link and make $300 a day. Looks very appealing and easy. And now please take a look at the screenshot from BBB, a nonprofit organization protecting people from craps like Stay at Home Revenue.

7. Michelle who supposedly stands behind this program is the owner of other link posting scams which makes things even worse. She also stands behind programs such as Work at Home University, Work at Home Authority. I’ve done a little investigation and here are the results.

It looks like a whole family stands behind this link posting project.

 

8. And finally there are always tons of complaints about these link posting scams. To name a few of them will be enough to see the whole picture behind this link posting scam. Please open each review and scroll down to see complaints. Since promoted product is the same in most cases complaints are true for most of them too.

    I struggled to understand how this scam “works” you pay them money and then they pay you to post links?

    How much do you get for 1 link that’s posted or is that where they scam you.

    How come it hasn’t been closed down yet? don’t worry it’s not something I am going to try been stung before struggling how people get suckered in to this?

    • Rufat says:

      Programs like this one are basically designed for people who have no any clue about making money online and that’s why they fall for this type of programs. Of course it sounds ridiculous to get paid for posting links. It worked a few years ago, but not now. I hope many people will come across my review and the like and will be saved from programs like Stay at Home Revenue.

  2. Saul says:

    Thank you for taking your time to alert us.

    I have been scammed in the past and it´s not a good felling and now i know (as you said) that there is not an easy road to make money online, every success is because of hardwork. keep your honest reviews up

    • Rufat says:

      Sure, there is no easy way to instant wealth and never was. Stay at Home revenue is definitely not going to help us with this goal.

  3. Juan says:

    After being around for some time once I see a website promoting the idea of easy money that to me is saying SCAM. However, like you mention in your post many folks still believe that as opposed to the real world internet allows to make money on autopilot.

    We need more people like you creating this type of websites to inform people. Once they are inform then it is up to them to make a decision, but at least they can make an informative decision.

    • Rufat says:

      I agree with your position. And this is my position to explain what the program is about without using such words as scam or rip off. I explain and I leave the rest to my readers. I just help them make an informed decision and I think this is the best method instead of promoting your own ideas.

  4. Louise says:

    This site is so useful and informative.
    I am new to WA, so I have not seen many sites but what I like about your site is that it gives a warning and evidence of your claim. This makes it completely believable.
    The best part of the whole site is that you give hopeful home earners a way to achieve still their dream by directing them to WA.
    Well done, I hope to achieve success the way you have,

    • Rufat says:

      Thank you for your comment Louise. This is my strategy I follow when writing my reviews. I always do an in-depth research that takes hours to complete in order to make my review informative and full of evidence or otherwise I can’t be convincing. And if I find enough evidences I rate a program as a scam like in this particular case. And Stay at Home Revenue is really useless program. With each of my reviews I try to point my visitors into the right direction and show them a real opportunity in order to save them from wasting their money.

    HI Rufat, Another nice review from you, You have saved a lot of people’s money.Your reviews are fantastic. I remembered last time I want to register an affiliate marketing site, but I have been saved by a per person who has written a review about him. I almost lose money If I had not read the review. I am really thanks, specially thanks to a person like you. Great post

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Christian for your kind words. I’m glad you like my review. Good to know you have been saved by someone thanks to their review and it’s really good that some people review products like Stay at Home Revenue and expose such scams. I once was saved from two scams and pointed to a legit program and since that time I’m doing alright.

  6. Kush1000 says:

    Hey! Great post you have created here! Kinda makes me pissed off and brings me back in time when I got scammed many times. That’s the way you find out the hard way and learn that money doesn’t fall from the sky. Great great great job! it’s about time someone exposes all the bull*hit online.
    I’m sure many people will find this article useful and interesting as I did.
    Thanks for sharing this and have a great day!
    Cheers and good luck

    • Rufat says:

      I agree Kush, the program really annoys me to because it’s a total BS. There are many programs of this kind out there and I’e reviewed 14 of them over the past 2 months. All these programs promote the same opportunity such as posting links. Though they falsely claim that you can become a search engine agent some of them offer some sort of training on affiliate marketing and you can learn a few things from their program. With this one, i.e. stay at home revenue you don’t even get a decent product and the owner of this program Michelle seems to own 3 other similar programs with the same level of support. Unfortunately, most of us fall for these scams and we have to learn the hard way. I think this program has too many cons and it would be safe to stay away from it.

  7. Tasos Perte Tzortzis says:

    Hey there Rufat , what is up again in the market?..Another scam artist trying to fool everyone for some quick bucks?..

    I hate it when they try to convince people using logos of well known companies to increase their authority.Only for that they should be punished.

    Seen on NBC news?…I think this is a bad joke.

    What disappointment with all these websites you found presenting the same headline…this is getting ever worse for the future.

    I think , scams will continue to grow rapidly , they watch people show interest for making money online and they create their “Awesome” campaigns to treat them “Right”..

    I have overviewed so many “Work From Home” websites or better say Landing Pages that were proved a total waste of time.

    Have you ever found any similar opt-in page that was decent?…And I am not talking about affiliate networks like WA or Affilorama.

    Great post as always , I really enjoy it today.

    Cheers

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Tasos, Unfortunately it’s just another scam using all possible deceptive methods in order to scam honest people out of their money. I think you are right and most of them should be punished due to using tricky methods and due to making false promises to people. But there is no such a service as internet police that could punish them and shut down their crappy sites. All we can do is do our own in-depth research to find out if the program is a scam or not which takes some time but that way you can save yourself from falling for scams like this one. And I agree that the number of poor programs will continue to grow rapidly because of the demand on the market. As for quality programs, there are some and you can find them on my product review page in the main menu of my website. Look for positive reviews.

  8. Sammi says:

    Hi, what a really interesting and humorous review! I take it you aren’t a fan of the company haha!! They don’t sound the most genuine of sites to make such a massive promise of money from! I love your final comment – “my final word is stay at home and you will be safe” haha.. I take it you weren’t tempted to join up then?? Sammi

    • Rufat says:

      I really enjoyed writing this review because I had a good laugh. The idea of link posting agent is an absolute winner. I give them credit for this idea, it’s really funny. I’ve never thought that affiliate marketer can be introduced as link posting profession. Joking aside, but it’s really bad they launch such poor products and point people in the wrong direction which leads them to waste their time by doing wrong things. Sure, I didn’t join it because I can smell poor products like this a mile off.
