What is HotLogo.net all about?
HotLogo.net seems to be a website where one can participate in and earn some extra income through accomplishing certain tasks. The minimum requirement to take part in this opportunity is to have access to the internet.
After doing so research I found out that this website has only been registered on the 13th of February 2017 from Russia(Moscow). Unfortunately, since the domain is privately registered I am not able to see whose name is the website registered under.
HotLogo.net claims that you can make money every day using their site. In other words, you can earn income from $5 onwards per day. Also, they seem to be also giving out a free $5 bonus just for registration and an additional $1 as loyalty bonus every day(probably means logging in and using their site everyday).
Wow, seems like a good opportunity to earn some extra cash right?
Well… to be honest, I am not buying into any of those statements. I have been involved with much different make money online programs in the past and most of them that promised easy money have mostly turned out to be scams so I don’t see how this site is any different.
Anyway, I am not going to come to any conclusions just yet. I have decided to create an account and try it for myself since the registration is Free.
My Personal Experience… A Bitter one Indeed
The registration process was a pretty quick one. All I had to do was enter my name, email address and a password to create my account.
And as promised I did get my $5 registration bonus immediately after I signed in.
However, I am not able to withdraw this money just yet. I need to reach a minimum of $30 before I can request for cash out which is not too bad… I think
The Job Section
Those of you who have yet to create your account can have a look at the above image to see how the job section will look like. Basically, there are different jobs to choose from and the amount you will earn is based on the difficulty of the task(Easy, Normal, Hard). The Harder the task, the more money you will earn.
Narrow down to a particular Job
So I randomly choose from any of those available jobs, which then leads me to something like this. All I have to do is tick a minimum or 4 boxes and continue.
Will do another set of questions like this and then I will get paid.
So simple right…
Something tells me that something isn’t right here. Looking at how easy the so-called jobs they are offering makes me wonder whether this is really legit. Funny enough, all the other jobs are also very similar. Just select some boxes and continue… and puuussh… YOU EARN MONEY!
Wow?? But of course, I still pushed on to reach the $30 mark and hope that they really paid me.
To quicken the earning process, another way you can earn money is through the referral system. Basically, you promote this exact site using your unique referral link to someone else and you can earn some commissions if they sign up.
For each new user registered under you, you will receive $0.20 instantly and receive up to 30% of the profit from your referrals work.
So I did exactly like they said and shared my link to some of my friends and on different social media groups. I managed to reach the threshold limit of $30 within a week through promoting my link and completing the available jobs listed on their website.
Now, some of you will be wondering… so did I get paid?
Well… the answer is NO!
I didn’t get paid a dime. It’s been almost a month since I ordered for payment and there wasn’t any payment made to my Paypal account nor did their technical support responded to any of the messages I send them.
As suspected this is probably a scam. The one mistake I probably did is not check out their review page before hand. This is how their review section looks. Seriously? Just full of words, no photos or any supporting document. These are probably typed out by the owner himself.
So… How Does it Benefit the Owner?
Of course, I am not going to stop there just because I didn’t make any money. There are many people who will also have come across this website and might want to give it a try. So for the benefit of everyone else, I did some thorough research to see why this website is up in the first place? How does it benefit the owner? Why must he create a fake website in the first place to get so many visitors?
I managed to find out that this website is up so that the owner can earn money for himself. He has placed a couple of different earning opportunities within the website that can earn him a small fortune.
#1: Promoting Scams
Whenever you log in to Hotlogo.net you will get a pop up on your screen. The above is an example of what I get when I log in. Basically, it’s a binary options trading software. This software is a SCAM. It doesn’t work and it requires to deposit a minimum fund of $250. Don’t get sucked into any of those.
So what happens is, our dear anonymous friend is actually promoting this scam. He will earn a small commission if you sign up and deposit an amount.
#2: Advertisment on Website
The owner has placed ads on different parts of his website. For e.g. those that I have highlighted in red are the ads. What happens is, whenever someone clicks on the ad, he will earn a small income.
So is HotLogo.net a scam?
Yes, HotLogo.net is definitely a scam.
I highly recommend that you stay away from this. This website not only wastes your time for completing so called jobs and also for recruiting people, but if not careful will also lead you to spend quite a bit of money on the scams that are being promoted.
The reason this website is up is so that the owner himself can make money. Basically, he is using all of us to share his website with as many people as possible so that they will come click on some of his ads, or purchase some of the products he is promoting.
This is a very unethical way to scam people… I’m totally disappointed. I am very sure those of you reading this right now also feel the same as me.
What you need to understand here is that earning money online is no different from the corporate world. You will have to work hard and put in the effort to get food on the table. Those that promise you easy or instant money obviously has some hidden agenda up their sleeves.
Final Verdict: Scam, Not Recommended
Safe & Solid Way To Earn Money Online?
For those of you who are keen in generating good income online, I highly recommend that you Start Your Own Online Business. This is a really safe and solid opportunity because you don’t depend on anybody but yourself. You don’t have to worry about completing the tasks and not getting paid later on.
So… what do I mean by online business?
There are many ways of running your very own online business. Selling your own products, running an e-commerce store, Amazon FBA is a few I can list from the top of my head. But the one that I am most comfortable with and talking about now is called Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate Marketing means promoting someone else’s products/services and earn commissions from it. There are countless of benefits for this approach which is the reason why I really love it.
Some of them include…
- You don’t need a huge capital to start
- Can be done from the comfort of your own home
- No need to physically get in contact with anyone. Everything is done through the internet.
- You don’t have to worry about what products to sell or storage space to put your products
It’s really not difficult to get started. All you need is an interest or passion. If you have one, you can build a business around it. I have been doing this for just over a year and have seen more than just great success with it. This opportunity has allowed me to quit my day job and run this entirely from home and the best part…? My income is almost 3 times of what I earned in the corporate world.
Though it is nice to hear… I have to tell you that this didn’t happen overnight. I have put in a great amount of effort to make this work. If you are expecting to make tons of money within a week or month, sorry, this isn’t something for you. You have to put in the effort and give yourself enough time to see success in this.
I know some of you might be thinking right now, how do I get started without any proper understanding or knowledge about Affiliate Marketing & starting an online business. Don’t worry, I have got you covered. I have been using this program called Wealthy Affiliate. It’s an online training platform that teaches you from scratch to building an affiliate marketing business.
