Secure Job Position Review
If you’re new to making money online, you might have an incorrect perception that it’s easy and incredibly quick to generate cash. Sadly, that’s not true but many systems state things like this in the hope it will make you buy them.
For example, take Secure Job Position which states “within 5 minutes you could be making real money”.
Not only that but they suggest you’ll start earning immediately even with no skills or experience. That’s quite a claim to make but the reality is they are targeting desperate people who need extra money and fast.
Long story short, this Secure Job Position program exists for two reasons:
- To get you to pull out your credit card and make a purchase without thinking twice about it.
- To label you a sucker and to sell you more products in the future.
Don’t fall victim to this crap.
Secure Job Position by Kelly Simmons
One of the first things you encounter on the Secure Job Position website is a form to get your email and phone number. In theory this is to check for availability in your area, but the reality is more sinister.
If the system available where you live? If you live anywhere in America then yes, it’s available. The form is what I call an email harvester in that they are just trying to get your details so they can send email after email and make call after call to you to sell you stuff.
(January 2018 Update: I first reviewed this system in June 2017 and Kelly was quick to notify me that “There is Currently 7 Positions Left In Your Area.” It’s now 7 months later, the glaring grammatical error hasn’t been fixed and those positions somehow still haven’t been filled.)
If you pass this so called check, you’ll end up on the main sales page.
Cookie Cutter Sales Pitch
I’ve seen this sales page numerous times, and it’s virtually the same each time. The only differences are the name of the product and occasionally a different name than Kelly Simmons.
If this system was legit, why would they need to add it under dozens or more different domain names?
Do you see any other business having a duplicate of their site under a different name? No, of course not!
This sort of tactic is to steel themselves against the inevitable burning of one of their domain names due to bad press or worse.
The tactics used in this sales pitch are common, but not something any upstanding marketer would use.
For example, there are several well-known news agency logos on the site most likely used without permission. It states that work from home opportunities have been featured on them, and this is likely true, but the real aim is to suggest that this product has been featured on them, which it has not.
“But it was featured on the news!”
This program wasn’t actually featured anywhere. The news logos you see are not endorsements.
Kelly Simmons is banking on the fact that you will see the logos and skip right past what it says above them:
No joke. Here are the fastest ways to make easy money online. Click here to see how.
“Work From Home Opportunities Have Been Featured On:”
And I’m sure they have been, but Secure Job Position has absolutely not. The people behind this want you to see the logos, associate legitimacy with the program, and continue on down the page.
As well as that, there are several scarcity tactics used. This method is common place in marketing, but where most marketers will actually follow through and remove the product, that’s not the case here. This sales page will always say there are only a few spots left, regardless of how many they sell!
A Repeat Performance
Further down the sales pitch is a legitimate news clip about work from home opportunities. This video seems to appear on every single underhand system out there and is used to bolster the idea that this system is legitimate, when in fact the video is old and only talks about home from home opportunities in general terms.
Testimonials can be hard to verify but when they use stock photography for the people and general untraceable names, it should concern you.
In this day and age social proof is an important way for people to tell if a product is good or not, so these fake testimonials are really just trying to abuse that.
Is Secure Job Position a Scam?
Well, yes. But keep reading to find out why.
If you were to buy this $77 program (the price continues to drop as you try and navigate away from the page), what would it teach you?
Well, the general idea behind it is link posting. This is where you add a link to somewhere on the internet and people click the link and you magically make money!
The sales letter pitches it to you as if there are multinational companies begging people to post links for them.
Apparently these companies, big names such as Apple and Netflix, will pay you between $5 and $30 per link you post!
This couldn’t be further from the truth.
First of all, if a company wanted links posting in this manner, they would either a) pay someone in a foreign country pennies on the dollar to do it or b) use their in house coders to make an automated system to do it.
No company out there will pay you that kind of money for “posting” a link. As well as that any sensible company would know that randomly posting links on the internet is not only ineffective without context, but also a type of spam!
You can make money from home and it doesn't have to be challenging. Click here to see how.
The reality is that this system is based on affiliate marketing: you post your affiliate link, if someone clicks it and then (and this is important) buys something, you get a commission on the sale.
Affiliate marketing as a whole is a legitimate business opportunity and a very effective way of making money online, but it takes much longer than 5 minutes to make money with it!
Internet users are savvy people for the most part so they will not just click some random link, which is why affiliate marketers spend hours, weeks, months and years providing value and building a following of people.
Just because you post a link in a forum/blog comment/on social media doesn’t mean people will click it. At best the site in question will simply remove the link, at worst you’ll be labelled as a spammer and/or banned from the site.
Secure Job Position is preying on your vulnerabilities. They are using hype and non-sense to get you to buy into their system without thinking rationally.
“But they offer a 30 day money back guarantee!”
Their terms state:
6. Refunds: Secure Job Position offers a 60-day refund policy from the date of purchase on the initial enrollment purchase price only. All we ask is that you examine everything and put forth an honest effort for the first 30-days and you may make money – it’s that simple!
I have seen these exact terms used in the past and similar scams use the “honest effort” line to prevent you from getting your refund.
If you have paid them already and are looking to get your money back, their listed customer service line is 1-877-843-6846. Be prepared to put up a fight. It might be better off to just dispute the charges with your bank or credit card company.
All you need to do is ask yourself one simple question: if anyone could be making over $1,000 per day by doing something that requires no experience, skill, or expertise, why isn’t everyone doing it?
That tells you all you really need to know about this opportunity.
The Bottom Line
Can you make money with Secure Job Position?
No, absolutely not.
You are going to be sold dodgy, outdated training and when you fail to make any money, they will come along with another program to buy that will guarantee you success again beyond your wildest dreams.
You are simply handing over your credit card information to scammers and telling them “Hey! I’ll buy anything you have to sell me!”
Avoid programs like these, and any ones out there that claim you can make millions overnight with no experience, skills, or effort required. You are setting yourself up for heartache and lost money.

Another great article Steve. Learning a lot and saving time from bookmarking your website. Great info here. The problem with being a newbie is falling victim to false promises and having high expectations of income. You make it clear that its hard work but possible. Thanks again. Making money online is hard work and good training and your website offers good advise for the beginner.
Glad I could help Dave! There are definitely a lot of people out there willing to prey on those just looking for work. I’ll keep exposing them the best I can.
As an inspiring internet marketer who Builds legitimate ways to earn revenue online, these sort of programs stink. not only do they create a bad name for coaches / consultants like me. they take advantage of people who are truly trying to find ways to make extra income on line. its sick, and business like these need to be exposed. great work on this piece of content. Keep at It
Thanks for review on this scam program. There are many such scam programs out there online. I have also encountered with this kind of program once. When you purchase something they keep on offering more and more systems which is actually garbage. I dont remember the name of the program which promise earning thousand dollars in a month without quality products. This kind of fraudelent schemes exist to rip off credit card. It is good that you are reviewing on such programs.
You’re right Jesse. This scheme only exists to label you as a sucker if you purchase it. Expect to be constantly sold to by increasingly pushy salesmen. This exact “program” has a few dozen iterations. The page stays the same, but they swap out the name of the program and the founder. I will continue to try and catch them all. Thanks for the comment!
Thank you for bringing this Scam site for the notice as normally people like us who want to earn legit online income become victims of such sites. Your great in-detailed review has really opened my eyes and I have come to know how these scam sites use catchy illegal techniques to make us fool.
As per my opinion, methods like affiliate marketing, drop ship business etc. really help people earn legit online income. And these methods are also not so easy and one has to really work hard to make on line income for decent living.
Thank you again.
Glad to have been able to help Himbru! These scammers are masquerading legitimate opportunities as easy ways to make cash and that devalues the industry as a whole. Affiliate marketing is absolutely a viable way to make money, but it is no where as easy or as simple (“Just post a link and get paid $30!”) as Secure Job Position will lead you to believe.
Thank you for the info. I hate to see people take advantage of others like this!
Glad to have helped Dan. These guys are still heavily preying on others via sponsored ads in search engines. Why they are still allowed to operate is beyond me, but I will work my hardest to make sure no one falls victim to this crap.
thanks for articles. Great information. I’m usually weary of anything that says you’re going to make money, quickly, with little work, and guaranteed
This looks like such a scam. As far as I’m concerned, if they have to lie to you before you’ve even bought the product, how can you expect that their claims of making lots and lots of money will be honoured? Anything that says you’re going to earn thousands and thousands immediately just by sitting at your computer is bogus. It takes a real education and real work before you can earn money online, and crap like this isn’t the way to go.
Right on Jack. While it is possible to make a lot of money online, it takes a lot of time to gain knowledge in a new industry and it takes work to build up a business from the ground up. Instant earnings at no effort are impossible to come across.
Great information. I’m usually weary of anything that says you’re going to make money, quickly, with little work, and guaranteed. Wealthy Affiliate says you can make money and be successful, but no guarantee, no claims of being easy, and they definitely stress that it will take lot of time and work. Nothing of value comes easy, and making money online is no exception.
I appreciate the opportunity to learn from either your mistakes or your assessment of a horrible situation and false opportunity. I see that you recommend Wealthy Affiliate as your top option. What would you say to someone who is thinking about trying to learn online marketing? Can a person still just be starting and actually make money online? What is the favorite part of your new lifestyle as a successful marketer?
