Online-Income-Center.com is the web based home of the Online Money job training package, a new work at home opportunity promoted by spokeswoman Michelle Johnson, which is said to guarantee anyone a livable income from home.
Michelle Johnson, described here as the “Number One Home Job Consultant” has also formerly represented Internet Income Pillars, a company which helped people become eBay Auction Listing Agents, and the Home Income Program, an opportunity similar to Online Money, which claims to train people to become Search Engine Agents.
For their “certified” Search Engine Agent training, the website says you pay a one time fee of $97 and that you can begin earning money immediately.
About Link Posting
Link posting, or affiliate marketing, is likely the most popular type of job training program for sale online today. Unfortunately, it is also probably the most misunderstood type of independent business because of the way these training program misrepresent it.
Though Online-Income-Center.com implies that their members will earn money for “posting links online,” the truth is that affiliate marketers only earn money when the links they post result in actual sales, which can be much harder to accomplish.
And though Online Money presents this opportunity as though the only fee required to begin is the discounted $97 – off a fee that is normally closer to $300 – the truth is that they actually continue charging you $9.95 each month you continue using their program.
The Bottom Line
In addition to the ways this opportunity is misrepresented above, Online Money goes a step further by giving confusing – and contradictory – information regarding their refund policy.
While their sales page states that you have two weeks to request a refund if you are unhappy, further down the page another reference to refunds states that members have 60 days to request. But worst of all, their Terms and Conditions does not outline any refund policy at all, which is often a bad sign that should make customers wary.
Customers who are interested in affiliate marketing and link posting can find information on this type of business all over the internet, from public forums to Wikipedia, before you ever have to invest any money in a training program.
