Income at Home Review – Many Complaints and Exaggerated Earnings

income at home


Price: $39.95 +$9 for shipping

Verdict: Scam

Income at home program offers an opportunity to make money from the comfort of your home with 100% satisfaction guarantee. The owners of the program claim that they’ve created an incredible system that can help you start your own home business.

They promise to provide you with simple, step-by-step plan that will show you how to make serious money online. With all that being said, words are easier said than done, or in other words, because only few out of thousands of programs deliver what they promise. In this review I’m going to investigate if Income at Home is the right program to join.

Once you become a member of that site, you will receive a work at home kit explaining you how to earn income from the comfort of your home. After completing the order, your personal business coach will contact and teach you the steps to follow to start earning an income.

The biggest problem with all programs similar to that one is that they are not transparent, i.e. they don’t tell you exactly what you are going to do to earn an income. They keep it secret by making a lot of promises they fail to deliver.

I consider, as well as the real practice proves, that if a program doesn’t plainly state what you are required to do, then it’s most likely a scam, or a low-quality product. All their promises are about simple, step-by-step plan for making a lot of money without clear explanation of the steps to follow.


Income at Home = MLM scheme

In fact, Income at Home is a company promoting Herbalife and there are many other companies similar to that one on the web. All of them are nothing but multilevel network marketing schemes. Herbalife is a multi level marketing (MLM) company promoting nutrition, weight loss products based on MLM scheme.

MLM scheme compensates you for the sales you make and the sales made by other people that you recruit. MLM companies use this scheme to attract more people, since it looks tempting in terms of compensation. Normally, MLM companies pay much attention to their training program and promise people high earning potential in return for their efforts.

And though they pay much attention to their training, it is of little help in terms of practical application. However, most of them have a bad reputation due to some reasons, such as false promises, exaggerated earnings, not being transparent, having many upsells etc.


What I don’t like

What I don’t like about Income at Home, is that it’s very similar to many other MLM schemes out there that I know. There is a lack of transparency and aggressive marketing techniques involved in that program.

If you join Income at Home, you are going to sell vitamins, health supplements and similar products of Herbalife International Company. But to sell these types of products you don’t need to join Herbalife, because there are tons of other companies with similar products, better in quality and higher in affiliate commission.


What I like

The only thing that I like about Income at Home, is that they do offer 90-day, no questions asked money back guarantee.


The pros of the program:

90-day money back guarantee


The cons of the program:

Bad reputation of all MLM scheme programs

Exaggerated earnings

False promises

Their products are expensive

More than 90% of the people involved in MLM schemes fail to achieve success

There are many complaints about Herbalife


What now?

Finally, my recommendation would be: Avoid Income at Home because they follow the same way like all other scam programs, i.e. they promise you guaranteed success and a lot of money through following simple steps and most people buy into this type of marketing technique.

They claim that thousands of people are already making money by following those steps and you simply can’t fail. They claim that they have a huge database of knowledge and a perfect plan that will work for you. It is not true because there is no any secret plan that can help you achieve success online.

There is only one way, i.e. through learning, working hard and applying the right techniques.

To succeed online you need to learn:

The basics of internet marketing,

Create a website,

Create unique content for your website,

Market your website using the right (legit) techniques,

You need to join an active community where you can get unlimited support on every step of building your online business. The only place I can honestly recommend you is Wealthy Affiliate and I’m a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate and know the program from inside.

It is absolutely free for the first 7 days and you even can go through 10 lessons and once you complete it you will have a clear understanding of what online business is all about and if you are serious about starting your online business you can go premium. For more information please read my review of the WA below.

At Income at Home you WON’T find any real training or the advantages Wealthy Affiliate has to offer you and if so, I don’t think you can succeed with  Income at Home. Add to that many complaints, lack of transparency, exaggerated earnings, bad reputation of all MLM schemes. I don’t think you can find a single strong argument to join the program.

    Rufat, this is a very good and engaging site that I’ve ever encountered set up by an individual. While I’m trying to make comments, I’ve also bookmarked it for my future reference and studies.

    First of all, the site provide very engaging information that shows sincere concern on the audience. After I visited the scam page, I reestablished my understanding on identifying scams. And I do believe other audiences should have similar experience.

    If you ask me for critics on the site, it is really hard for me. The only thing that I can suggest (subjectively) is that the left side of the side become narrower, making way for more contents on the main body.

    I’m glad to be a follower with you and I look forward to the opportunity of learning from you.

    Hey, thanks for taking your time and your review about incomeathome. Sometime last year I was actually looking into their program, but then, thank God I read someone’s review about Wealthy Affiliates and decided to join them. So thanks for doing a good job, and helping people to avoid scams like incomeathome

      It’s good that you’ve joined the right program because Income at Home is not the right one. Stay away from it.

    I did think it was strange that you have to pay for shipping; and then you revealed Income at Home is a funnel for Herbalife. I still can’t believe that after all these years, Herbalife is still around!!

    It seems like there’s not much training involved or elaborated on what it is you’ll be doing or how you will be making money from home.

    That’s the problem with MLM’s… they don’t explain how you will be making money, and when you finally learn how; it’s damn near impossible to get anyone to join because they’ve already joined through someone else.

    • Rufat says:

      It looks like Herbalife is still around. The only thing I know about MLMs is that they have a good supportive team which is good. But it’s mostly focused on direct face to face selling strategies which is not the best method for everyone. Plus, in most cases you need to buy products in order to sell them later. I think the fact that they offer a 90 days money back guarantee is good. But there are many complaints about this program which you can find in the link provided below. I think if there are complaints it automatically turns me off and I think it would be much safer if you forget this program.

    Hi Rufat,

    A good review of another program that promises a great deal, but in reality doesn’t even tell you what you will be doing to earn money. This is a common trait of many scams.
    I suppose you have to pay the $39 before you learn that it’s an MLM. It would be a good idea if all MLMs came with a warning, telling people that less than 5% of people joining an MLM ever make any money and less than 1% actually make a good living. I’m sure you can tell I am not a fan of MLM schemes.
    I would also question if it’s possible to sell these products and get new members from your own home as they suggest. As you say probably the only good point is the money back guarantee.
    Building your own online business takes time and a lot of hard work. If you’re persistent it can be done and obtaining some good training will give you a much better chance of succeeding.

      Thank you very much Peter for your valuable comment on my post. I totally agree with you and you are right when saying that most MLM companies promise people a pie in the sky but when it comes to real practice, only a small fraction of people can really make some money with MLMs. I have enough experience in internet marketing and know that almost all MLMs have a bad reputation on the web and there are always tons of complaints about them. Income at Home is not different from all other programs out there with all their false promises, pyramid scheme earnings etc. I don’t someone can make tons of money selling vitamins without proper education in internet marketing. As you exactly mention, it requires a proper education, hard work and patience. I think the only good thing about income at home is that they offer a 90 money back guarantee and anyone can try it to see if the program is a good fit for them. I personally don’t recommend it and instead of wasting time and money on this program I recommend to try my top rated program for free.
