This review is going to be about a website called MyPayPot.com. What is MyPayPot? Is it a scam? Or a legitimate opportunity for you to take part in and earn some extra money? Is there any hidden catch? These are some of the questions that we will be focusing on in this short review.
Alright without further ado, let’s get things rolling…
Price: “Free to join”
What is MyPayPot.com all about?
MyPayPot is a website that claims to be an internet job opportunity site that pays you money for completing simple tasks. It is quite a new site that has been around only since 19 July 2016.
According to some statistics that has been displayed on their homepage, they currently have 128,000 employees and have paid out over 205 million USD.
Besides all these, what really caught my attention was the earning claims they made:
“We guarantee you that you will earn $1500 in your first week by simple tasks of 5 – 10 minutes.”
I’m not buying into those claims just yet. Seriously, just work a couple of minutes and you get paid $1500 in your first week? Seems too good to be true to me. Anyway, just to double confirm my suspicions I decided to go ahead and create an account with them.
My Personal Experience…
So once I registered my account, I was taken to the member’s area. It wasn’t anything like I expected at all. All they had was one page with a referral link that you are required to promote on places like Facebook, Google+, YouTube, Forums, chat rooms, blogs and etc.
They even went on to say that you will earn $10 for every unique visitor that clicks your link.
Anyway, I just followed exactly what they said and shared my link in some of those places. I managed to get lots of people to click my link and I did see my total earning increase from 25 USD(signup bonus) to about 300 USD in no time.e.
Right now, I believe some of you might be wondering… so did I get paid?
Well, as suspected… I didn’t get paid a penny. There was a catch before I could eventually cash out that “money” I made. Basically, they gave me some surveys to do. What’s worst is, these surveys aren’t even free. I have to spend money to complete those offers.
Obviously, I didn’t complete them because…
(1) I don’t want to waste my money on these useless offers
(2) I doubt that even after I spend money completing the surveys, I will be getting any money out of it
From what it seems, this whole website exists for a sole purpose. Basically, the owner(s) of this website wants you to promote this site to as many people as you can so that more people will come forward and complete the surveys thus he/she can make money.
These offers are known as CPA offers. Once completed, the person who built this website will receive a small commission from the company.
At the end of the day, they are making money off us. It obviously a no-brainer that you can’t make money simply by allowing people to click on a link. If making money was that easy, nobody ever needs to drag their feet to work every morning. Everyone mind as well does this for a couple of minutes and spend the rest of the relaxing and enjoying life.
So is MyPayPot a Scam?
Yes, MyPayPot is definitely a scam and I am very confident about that.
It’s best to stay away from this website at all cost. Although it doesn’t require you to spend a whole lot of money, it nevertheless still is a scam because it gives you empty promises and wastes your time and effort recruiting people. At the end of the day, the person behind this is making all the money from our effort, not us.
What’s worst is the scam artist behind this site has created many similar websites with different domain names. Monthlyyouth.com and Money4Task.com are some of those I could easily name off the top of my head. The good thing is all of them look almost the same so it’s kinda easy to spot when you come across something as such again.
What you should understand is, earning money online is no different from the corporate world. You will have to work hard in order to get paid. Those that promise you easy or overnight income is obviously lying.
I always get this question from my readers, so mind as well share it with the rest of you guys here.
Are there any free and legit programs online where I can earn some decent money?
Yes, there are some opportunities that are free to join and allows you to make money without spending a dime such as Pay-To-Click sites or taking online surveys. But frankly speaking, those are not going to help you become rich or financially free as they only pay pennies. I’ve been there and done that!
Final Verdict: Scam, Not Recommended
Safe & Solid Way To Make Money Online?
For those of you who are interesting in creating a 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 for your time and efforts.
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, drop shipping is a few I can easily list. But the one that I have personally tried and have been successful with is called Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate Marketing in simple terms means promoting someone else’s products/services and earning 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
- Definitely has more potential to make money compared to many opportunities you see online
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 happen. If you are expecting to make a ton of money within a week or month, sorry, this isn’t something for you. You have to put in a great deal of 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.
