MonthlyYouth, found online at MonthlyYouth.com, is a work at home opportunity that claims their members can earn hundreds of dollars a day just by completing basic tasks that will only take 5 to 10 minutes at a time.
MonthlyYouth.com describes itself as an “innovative” new job site, where members can instantly be paid for quickly completing the work that appears on your dashboard as soon as you sign up – there is no need to wait before you begin earning money.
Creating an account with this company is free, as there is no sign up or registration fee, and they claim that you are guaranteed to earn a minimum of $1500 in the very first week you begin completing your tasks with their company.
The type of work this company is promoting – completing quick, small tasks for money – is actually a real opportunity called crowdsourcing. These small tasks are those that companies have realized are easy for people but difficult for computers, and it has become a popular work from home opportunity.
Unfortunately, MonthlyYouth does not appear to be a respectable crowdsourcing opportunity. Instead of providing real crowdsourcing tasks, like captioning pictures or translating text, what they really want their members to do is promote their website by posting referral links on forums and social networking sites.
This website also states that members must earn a minimum of $300 before they are allowed to withdraw their earnings, which is abnormally high. A payout minimum this high is generally used as a strategy by companies who are basically trying to get you to work “for free,” as it will take far too long for members to actually reach this payout level.
Finally, the website makes false promises, such as members are “guaranteed” to earn $1500 within the first week, however this “guarantee” is not detailed in a set of Terms & Conditions, which essentially makes it meaningless.
Thankfully users who are interested in crowdsourcing have a variety of opportunities from major companies who have gotten involved with hosting crowdsourcing opportunities, like Amazon Mechanical Turk, CloudCrowd, and Lionbridge Technologies.
You should always remember, however, that because these tasks are so quick and easy to complete that they don’t pay much – these opportunities are best suited for simply earning some supplemental income.
