Quick Summary of Worldwide Home Income

Rating: 1 A Link Posting Scam to Avoid

The Good: None that I can see.

The Bad: It's not a viable way to make a living. The sales page contains many lies and falsehoods. They make insane earnings claims that simply won't hold true. One of many duplicate sites.

The Bottom Line: If you come across Online Money Business News or it's sister site Online Income Profits, avoid them. It's a scam designed to rob you of as much money as they possibly can. Stick with tried and true methods of building an online business instead.

Worldwide Home Income Review

If you’re new to making money online, there are many pitfalls that can entrap you.

Some of these are down to you such as failing to take action or the ever present “shiny” syndrome of buying everything new!

However, some are down to unethical marketers trying to make a quick buck off of people like you who are unsure of the right way to go about making a living off the internet.

It is unethical sites and systems that brought about I’ve Tried That: we’re here to help you avoid the pitfalls!

That’s why today I need to talk to you about a system doing the rounds called Worldwide Home Income.

What is Worldwide Home Income?

This site by someone called Heather Smith lures you in under the pretense that you can make a solid, if not lucrative, living from posting links.

We’ve covered this type of scam before, many, many times in fact! Not only that but this specific system has been duplicated across a variety of different website names, with perhaps a few tweaks and changes such as the name, logo and Heather’s own name (she’s not really real you know).

Why is Link Posting Bad?

Link posting in itself is not a scam. The idea is to post links on forums, blog comment sections, social media networks, and so on.

If someone clicks your link and then takes action (buys something, fills out a form and so on) then you can make money from it.

Unfortunately link posting is a known spammer technique, and as such most sites will treat these links as spam.

This means that at the very best your links will simply be removed or not allowed in the first place. At worst, your account will get blocked, and your email/username/etc will be flagged as belonging to a spammer.

While links are a natural part of the web, the links associated with systems like Worldwide Home Income are definitely not good.

What Makes You Say This is a Scam?

There are a whole slew of reasons why I consider Worldwide Home Income a scam:

Duplicate sites

This system is replicated nearly exactly across a wide number of domain names. If it was a legitimate business why would they do that? You don’t see Walmart or Apple having exact copies of their sites at completely different domains. No, the only reason this is done is to broaden their net and to take into account any domains that get closed due to legal reasons or people becoming wise to them.

This is also noted in the fact that the page itself for Worldwide Home Income actually has the logo for Online Income which is the system you would purchase.

Fake News Logos

Worldwide Home Income news logos

The tricksters behind this system want you to feel that their site is legitimate so they add some logos of news companies to the site and hope you don’t look too closely as it says “work from home opportunities” have been featured on the networks, which is likely true. It doesn’t say that this particular system has been featured though.

Further down the sales pitch it does clearly state that this system has been showcased, and then provides a video which is a genuine news report about work from home opportunities. This video has been used by countless scam artists with their products but it has nothing to do with them as it’s just a report on the general topic of working from home.

Seen this video before somewhere… oh yeah on dozens of other scam sites.

Scarcity Tactics

Apparently there are only 3 spots left to claim in your local area. There will always be 3 spots left, regardless of where you live. This is just a tactic to try to make you hurry up and hoping that in your haste to not miss out you’ll miss the warning signs.

Fake Testimonials

Who are these people? Sure, there’s a name (a very generic name) and a photo but really, who are they?

I mean, Natalia from Texas, is she really from Texas? According to an image search she’s possibly American, Italian or Russian.

Worldwide Home Income testimonials

Sure, she could be all 3 but I don’t buy it.

Unprovable Earnings

The sales pitch states you can make up to $379 per day, with barely more than an hour’s work: the only evidence that’s provided for this feels false.

Take the earnings calculator: where are these figures pulled from? How are they worked out? It’s not clear.

The only thing the calculator does is to get your greed juices flowing. The defaults are set so that it shows that posting 15 links a day for 5 days a week will net you $78,00 per year.

Or take the screenshot of the personal account. This screenshot is poor quality and shows nothing that can’t be faked in a website or even in excel.

Worldwide Home Income statement

Not proof of anything! Too easily faked!

Trappings of Wealth

Throughout the sales pitch you’re shown various images and statements of wealth such as fast cars, and big houses, not needing a boss and working only a few hours a day.

Sure this is an ideal lifestyle and these elements certainly make up part of it, but this is merely a tactic to get you envious and

Because posting links can help you buy that yacht…

Businesses Don’t Want These Links

The sales pitch suggests that there are hundreds if not thousands of businesses out there clamoring to get people like you to post links for lots of money.

Worldwide Home Income demand

Nope.

As mentioned, these links are considered spammy so why would a business associate itself with them?

And why would they pay you $5 – $30 per link posted? It makes no sense, especially when they can get people in other countries to do the same thing for pennies.

At best you can promote affiliate products via these links that will provide a commission if someone purchases something after clicking you link.

However, it’s unlikely they will. Affiliate marketing often focuses around content marketing and pre-selling the audience about a particular product. This requires an article or video or similar, not just a random link.

The Bottom Line

This sort of system is legal enough to not get the creators in trouble but scammy enough to mean you will simply be out of pocket in the end. “Link posting” jobs are not real. They are disguising legitimate opportunities as something they’re not.

Avoid this one.

There's only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my 'hobby' into a $6,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.

    Great post and good warning! I’m always bothered when, instead of a “system” people are ultimately given just a single tactic for their enrollment fee. It’s okay to invest in something that comes with real multi-step education, but not a single tactic anyone can (and probably shouldn’t) take on their own. I’m with you – Wealthy Affiliate is definitely way better!

      There’s absolutely no problem with paying for an education, but when it comes to schemes like these, you are better off lighting your money on fire. At least you would get some use out of your money that way.

  2. Thank you for posting this. I have also seen similar link posting programs online and just like you said, even though they have a different name you described it exactly! The large income numbers, the fancy pictures, the rush to get you signed up before you wise up. I’ll admit though that when I read “shiny” in quotations my brain instantly went to the “shiny” song from Moana, and that’s exactly who these people are – a giant snail hoarding wealth and tricking others to get it! Ha! Thanks again!

      You’re exactly right Laura. These “systems” only exist to get you hyped up so you make a purchase without thinking rationally. Now that they have your credit card and contact info, they will hound you relentlessly to get even more money out of you. It’s extremely underhanded and the more people I help save from this crap, the better.

  3. Interesting review on worldwide home income. I have actually seen this program when I was looking for ways to earn money online and luckily I did not fall into this trap.
    I totally agree with your point of view especially that if its too good to be true it probably ain’t. Your style of writing is also very unique at least for me and I found it very easy to understand! Thanks and looking forward to your next posts!

      This exact page has been used by at least a dozen different scams in the past as well. They just tend to change the name of the program and swap in a new logo and then relaunch it as something new. It’s not new. It’s the same garbage that has been up for sale for years now.
