Easy Typing Cash (easytypingcash.com) is a new program that makes the standard make money from home claims. The owner, Tim Thomas, says that if you follow his course you’ll learn how to make a lot of money typing simple articles, blog posts, and placing media.
Whenever I come across an online program that has anything to do with typing or writing I’m immediately put on guard. The reason is because the majority of these programs use misleading pitches to target data entry from home job seekers.
Most of these data entry scams have been shut down by now, however since data entry work is still in such high demand proponents of these scams are finding new and more clever ways to abuse this niche with false information.
So what’s Inside Easy Typing Cash?
Based on the income claims made on the sales page of Easy Typing Cash, it’s fairly clear that this not a standard job or straightforward writing opportunity. Only professional writers get paid up to $75.00 for one short article and up to $35.00 for a blog post, so how is that any customer of Easy Typing Cash can make that much money.
The answer is simple; they are not selling a traditional writing job, what you’ll learn is basic affiliate marketing strategies that involve writing and typing. This is a clear example of the aforementioned strategies used to mislead data entry job seekers.
The only way to make the kind of money promised by Easy Typing Cash is by earning commissions through product promotion. Basically they’ll instruct you to write hype articles and show you were to submit them for maximum exposure. The process works as follows: someone reads one of your articles, follows your affiliate link to the product website, completes a purchase, you then earn a commission – usually 30 to 50 percent of the sale price.
This same concept applies to blog posts, you can start a blog on any topic you wish and sell appropriate products or eBooks from your posts.
So is Easy Typing Cash a Scam or Not?
Technically the course is not a scam, as long as you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. Internet marketing is not easy and if you choose to run your promotions on major search engines you need to have an advertising budget prepared that might not be recouped.
The bottom line is that you need to forget any notions about getting paid for writing/typing. The process of earning money involves, choosing a product to promote, writing about said product, getting your article/blog post to rank (involves learning SEO), and finally getting paid upon completion of a sale.
Now there is nothing wrong with this process but Easy Typing Cash misleads you about the true nature of what they’re selling and make it seem like all you have to do is write a couple paragraphs and wait for the cash to roll in. The other little bit of deception is in the true cost of the course.
For the initial $47 payment you will get the Easy Typing Cash tutorial but you’ll also be automatically enrolled in a 7 day trial period of something called the Instant Money Toolkit, it’s not clear what this additional program is but if you don’t cancel in time they’ll bill you $39.95 a month until you do so. If you’ve purchased the course and want to opt out of this costly program you can call 1-800-207-1132 to cancel.
Overall, I would advise proceeding with caution with EasyTypingCash, they’re not confident enough of their product to market it as what it is, an internet marketing course, instead they disguise it as a make money typing opportunity. They also throw in that monthly auto bill, a clear attempt to fleece their customers.
Now these transgressions could be excused if they were offering a stellar product, but unfortunately customer reviews paint a different story. The majority of people who’ve purchased the course have reported dissatisfaction on many consumer report websites.
