I have been on Twitter now around 3 month. It started out to be fun. There seemed to be some interaction going on, but over the last 4 weeks it seems that Twitter is becoming more and more a tool of self promotion.
In a matter of fact if I had subscribed, signed up and what else you can do on these marketer websites I probably could be a millionaire today.
There are sites that promise you to get paid if you post your resume online and a company dowwnloads your resume. In a matter of fact, this is one site I have signed up for. I guess that was about 4 to 5 weeks ago. The site is resumark.com and they clearly state on the front page:
Post resume online using our free Resume Assistant. Make $1 every time an employer downloads your resume!
In today’s economy even job search monsters are not enough. Find a job by using the fastest growing Job 2.0 Network!
Invite friends and earn money together when their resumes are downloaded.
As of today, I yet have to see a penny.
Then there are all these MLM’s (Multi Level Marketers); aka Network Marketers that promise you quick money for free. A great source to read more about MLM’s and the scam behind it can be read at “We’ll Build Your Downline For You” at SCAMS 101.
There is for instance that one page that offers:
The Internet’s Fastest, Easiest And Laziest ‘Plug-And-Play’ Software For Making Immediate Money Online With Twitter…Introducing…
Then comes all this marketing hype, telling in a million words how easy it is to make money witout doing anything. By the time you reach the end of the page they want $67 from you for some software that supposedly does all that for you.
What a joke, if it would be that easy nobody would have to work anymore and we all would be sitting on piles of money.
As I always say. If it is to good to be true, it usually is to good to be true. Just think about it for a moment. At $3267.75 a day you would have made close to $1.2 Million a year.
With the number of sites out there making claims like this, by just having a few sites like this I could be an overnight multi-millionaire. Doesn’t this sound to good to be true and I make any bet with you that it is to good to be true.
