Top 5 Money Making Ideas of 2017
There are many ideas out there to choose from to make money in this day in age, but know that it only takes just 1 good idea to make you a millionaire..
Now here is a list of 5 specific Money Making Ideas that anyone without any experience can dive right into and profit from this year.
If you have a computer, creative skills or just some extra time on your hands, you can become what’s known as a Freelancer! This is a very popular profession for people who loves the idea of working from home and setting their own work schedule each day.
There’s a website that’s called UpWork.com. Formerly known as Odesk.com and Elance.com. These two websites recently merged to form UpWork.com.
UpWork.com is a Freelance network that allows businesses to connect with Independent Freelancers who are available to perform a specific job or task. So if you have skills such as writing, drawing, editing, designing etc, there are businesses who are looking to hire you for a gig and pay you handsomely for your skills. As a Freelancer, you are not an employee. You are 100% independent, and you set your own prices/hourly rate for the projects you complete.
Even if you aren’t very skilled in things like writing, drawing and designing…. maybe a Freelance Virtual Assistant or Customer Service rep is more fitting for you. Business owners are very busy with various tasks. Therefore they need Virtual Assistants to help with things like setting client appointments, responding to customer requests and or answering emails. These skills may be simple, but highly needed by businesses. The sky is the limit when it comes to the type of work you can do as a Freelancer. But know that many Freelancers earn a 6 figure yearly income doing what they do.
Now maybe giving lessons to play a musical instrument does require you to already have the skill. But if you happen to have a gift of playing a musical instrument such as a Piano, Violin, Guitar etc…. why not get paid for teaching others how to play?
There is a huge demand out there for individuals who are looking to learn how to play a musical instrument! So if you are willing to help people and share your skills and expertise for playing an instrument, this can definitely put a lot of extra cash in your pockets.
Choose when and where you want to give your lessons and charge an hourly rate. The best thing about any paid profession that involves “teaching”, nobody typically learns overnight. Therefore if you are giving lessons by the hour, it is likely you can easily turn this into a business and earn a full time income with just a handful of students each week. Definitely recommended if you have a passion for playing musical instruments.
With this idea, you will need to love working with dogs. Dog sitting and Dog walking may seem like something that a teenager would do for extra cash, but in fact there are many people who makes a profession out of it and earns a full time living.
The demand for this kind of thing is bigger than most people may realize. To most Dog lovers, their Dogs are their children and they desire them to have the kind of care as if they were their child. In this day in age, life is busy and sometimes there isn’t someone available to feed the Dog, let them out to go potty or give them a walk while the owner is working during the day.
That’s why there are many Doggy Daycares to care for Dogs while their owners are at work. And there many people who are independent who does it as well. Someone who truly cares about their Dog wouldn’t leave them at home or outside by them-self for a full 8 hours everyday. Therefore many Dog owners are looking for someone who can take care of their Dog during working hours. This can range from someone having access to their home to come by and feed their Dog, give them a walk and let them potty. Or the alternative is for the owner to drop their Dog somewhere (such as a Doggy Daycare or someone else’s home) to have them do these things.
For this profession, you don’t need any special qualifications aside from knowing basic things on how to care for Dogs. You don’t even need your own facility. If you have your own home or place that allows for pets, then you can do this right from the comfort of your home and have Dog owners drop off their pets each day. Can be a very easy way to earn cash once you get the hang of it!
Starting your own concession stand obviously requires some startup capital, but the kind of profit you can earn from something this simple can be beyond imaginable. Because if there’s a single industry in the world that will always continue to stay in demand regardless of the economy, then that’s the food industry!
As human beings that require eating every single day, people will always buy food regardless of how bad the economy is. There are people that I know of personally who works a few critical seasonal months out of the year with their concession business, earn multiple 6 figures in income, and then take the remainder of the year off to spend with their families.
I know the big question may be “what kind of concession business” to start. Some of the best sellers and most profitable concession businesses that I know of are people who are selling Funnel Cakes, Hot Dogs, Cotton Candy, ICEEs, and also simple things like bags of chips, candy bars, pop and bottled water. You don’t have to sell all of these things at a single concession stand, I know many who run concession stands that sells just Funnel Cakes. In the northern US States, many people just looooove Funnel Cakes. I know I do! And there are some that just sell Hot Dogs and soft drinks, and some just very basic things like chips, candy bars, pop and water.
As mentioned, starting your own concession business does require startup capital. And how much startup capital you need for this will depend on the products itself and the kind of concession stand you will operate. The other thing you will need is a Vendors License to sell and a Permit to setup where you’ll be operating. The specific requirements will vary from state to state (if you’re in the US) but is usually very simple to get licensed and will usually cost you less than a couple hundred bucks.
The real costs are going to be investing in the actual concession stand. For example, Funnel Cakes may be one of the more expensive kind of concession stands, especially if you are operating a trailer type of concession stand. A concession trailer can start at around $5,000 – $20,000+ easily for one that’s brand new. And then you will need a good commercial grade funnel cake fryer as well as a fuel source (likely propane or natural gas). Therefore the initial investment can be an upwards of $40,000 – $50,000. Although this may sound like a lot of money, but for someone that’s serious about starting their own business can feel comfortable getting a loan to invest in this industry, because they can easily turn their concession business into a $250,000 or more per year business.
But for someone with a much lower budget can start with basic snacks (chips, candy bars, pop/water). If you have a Costco or Sams Club membership, you can spend as little as a couple hundred dollars and buy these things by the bulk and start selling from something as simple as a table and a chair for your concession stand. Your entire initial investment can be less than $500 to start, including your licenses and permits.
The key to earning big profits in a concession business is not so much the product you are selling, but it’s the “location”. Typically any place where there are lots of people, you will easily sell your concession items. Within large cities may be more competitive with likely other concession stands, but as most people can relate, most of the larger concession stands that’s near or within a big city prices are usually very high. I mean I have seen $4.00 for a Hot Dog and $3.50 for a bottle of water. They can set their prices this high because they understand that people will still buy in predictable numbers, even if it’s expensive. When people are walking on street such as from a baseball or football game, or from a big event in a downtown area, people will get hungry and thirsty from walking and will buy the first thing they see and not worry much about the price.
But how you can stand out from your competition and sell your concession items for just a fair markup from what you paid. Just enough to make it worth your while. For example, at most Costco locations you can buy a 40 pack of bottled water for just $4.99. So if you sold each bottle of water for only $1.00 (which is beyond reasonable for a concession stand price), you will earn $40 per case of water from a $5 investment.
I can go on and on with ideas related to concession stand businesses, but I think you get the point and now have some ideas if this interests you…. So if you are looking for a business with low startup costs, low overhead and a capability of earning money fast, then a concession business would be the business for you. Just keep in mind that location is key (location where lots of people are) will determine how profitable you can be.
In these recent years, Affiliate Marketing sometimes referred to as “Internet Marketing” has become a very high demand multi billion dollar per year industry. I saved this for last, because if you found my website, you are likely someone that’s looking for ways to make money from home, specifically using your computer on the internet. And if that’s you, then I think you will love what I am about to share with you about affiliate marketing.
A very good thing about affiliate marketing is you can start without having any previous experience, only requiring a computer and an internet connection to get started. You can set your own hours and can work from home or anywhere in the world. And the best part is it’s possible to earn from a few extra hundred dollars per week, up to a 6 and 7 figures (yes a $million dollars+) per year in income.
Now to explain what Affiliate Marketing is… As an Affiliate Marketer, you work independently with a business or businesses to help them sell more of their product and is compensated on a percentage or flat rate amount on each sale. This is somewhat similar to Freelancing, but not exactly. With Freelancing, you are hired and compensated to perform a specific job or task for a business. But an affiliate marketer’s job is primarily focusing on the sales and marketing of the business’s products.
Now if you’re thinking, “Oh, this is just a sales opportunity and not for me”…. think again and take this into consideration… When most people who are not in a sales profession think of anything that involves selling, they think “I’m not a salesman/saleswoman”. But when it comes to affiliate marketing on the internet, you don’t need to be. And not to mention you can sell products effortlessly without directly doing the selling and without talking to anyone on the phone or in person either, once you learn what you are doing. In fact, many affiliate marketers work at home in their underwear and earns the average American employee’s annual salary in a single month.
If the idea of that doesn’t excite you, then I don’t know what will :)… But know that a huge part of my personal income and success has come from affiliate marketing on the internet. The only thing when it comes to affiliate marketing that some may see as a con, is most beginners will not create success overnight with it. It’s not difficult, but as with any high paying profession in life, there is knowledge to gain and skills to be obtained before you can be successful at it.
There are many courses for sales, such as books, videos and even classrooms where successful affiliate marketers teach others how to be successful with it. But if you are interested in learning how to be an affiliate marketer, and want to learn how to earn more money online from doing this than any job has ever paid you, then pay close attention… I have a 100% free video training course to teach you “step by step” how I have earned a multiple 6 figure income with affiliate marketing. I do it without phone calls, without referring family/friends, all 100% online and in my spare time.

If you have been looking for information and wondering if Digital Altitude is a scam, then I recommend you read every word on this page to understand the “truth” whether or not if Digital Altitude is really a scam.
Now this article is not going to be a general review such as what the company is, compensation plan etc. If that’s what you are looking for then I recommend that you see my original Digital Altitude Review. This article is going to primarily talk about “Digital Altitude” aka Aspire System being a scam.
Now the short answer is no, but I’ll tell you why these supposedly “scam busters” who are really wolves in sheep clothing says that Digital Altitude is a scam here in a bit. But the truth is Digital Altitude is far from a scam. In fact, Digital Altitude is a real registered Limited Liability Company (LLC) based out of Lewes, Delaware. And being a registered business based in the United States, there are various ethical business practices a business must follow to qualify as a legitimate business that is in good standing.
If there was even slight a chance that Digital Altitude is a scam then they would have been shut down by United States Federal Trade Commission (US FTC) before they even got off the ground. Not to mention Digital Altitude is now over a year old and is continuously growing each month.
Digital Altitude is a REAL Community of REAL People (Play Video)
Now I have been in the Internet Marketing space for a little over 5 years now, and during my 5 years in this industry I have seen LOTS of traffic hungry competitors. Particularly unethical competitors to compete for business as if there’s a shortage of people on the internet.
Now the people who are really saying that “Digital Altitude is a scam” are actually critics that are internet marketers or individuals with a similar business. These are people who hide behind their computer with fake pictures of who they are and, and not to mention you can never meet these people in real life (unlike you can in the Digital Altitude community as seen in the video above). These critics pose as a legitimate review or scam buster website, when their real intentions are to give you mixed feelings about any company that goes viral and gets popular on the internet (such as Digital Altitude), just in hopes they can recruit you into their business or sell you some kind of product they are selling. This is very very unethical and sad, and since their information is not based on real facts and truth, makes them the “real scam artists”.
I feel these people are envious because of how viral and rapidly that Digital Altitude has been growing this past year. And the best marketing strategy these people can come up with are “scare tactics”. It’s a way of getting attention to yourself by putting fear in people, putting down, making up lies and calling everything that’s more successful than they are, a scam. It’s like being a celebrity with critics who spends countless hours writing in the tabloids to spill unnecessary drama about a celebrity, just for the attention and publicity.
So when it comes to the Digital Altitude Scam reports you may see on the internet are for these reasons. And it’s literally only a few websites that says this. But one thing I notice is that the websites that are saying that “Digital is a scam” all have one thing in common…. and that’s this company by the name of Wealthy Affiliate.
It’s actually quite ironic that I once thought Wealthy Affiliate was a good company, and I was in fact close to joining at one time. But I found that they teach “negative marketing tactics”, such as teaching their affiliates to bash every successful business that goes viral on the internet, just so they can recruit them into this “Wealthy Affiliate” company. And every article that I have read that says Digital Altitude is a scam all have negative reviews about almost every other affiliate marketing business on the internet, lying to people saying they are all scams.
Then at the end of every one of their negative review they try to recruit you into this Wealthy Affiliate company. And if that’s their best marketing practice, then I would recommend anyone who sees this company to stay away from it. And that’s besides the point that there are plenty of consumer complaints and ripoff reports about this company. I have heard many complaints from people who joined Wealthy Affiliate that said that their leaders big vision and core focus is “bashing other companies” rather than teaching their affiliates on how to actually make money. So it’s not Digital Altitude’s fault for their lack of growth and success.
Now when it comes to making money on the internet, specifically the kind of money one can consider a decent enough income to live comfortably on takes time, work, and effort. There’s no such thing as an overnight success system. Digital Altitude teaches the nuts and bolts of building a 6 and 7 figure business on the internet, which is not something that will happen overnight. But some people naively join Digital Altitude with these false intentions.
So most people who fail in Digital Altitude are the people who simply give up on their financial dreams and goals too soon, expecting to “Get Rich Quick”. And that’s not what this company claims or how it works. As Dr Maltz (author of PsychoCybertics) put it… some people have strong desires but are not willing to risk hurting their ego to get it. Protecting their ego is their bigger goal, fearing failure to avoid embarrassment or humiliation in the eyes of others. Which is why most people rather fit in with the majority, settle for what’s convenient rather than to work hard to obtain their goal.
This goes for anything in life, not just in business. I mean for example… it’s fair to say that Doctors, Lawyers and Aircraft Engineers are all professions that pays well over 6 figures per year. But how many people go to college to pursue one of these professions and don’t actually follow-through getting in their profession? But instead end up with an “excuse or blame” about why they didn’t succeed, then end up working at a local grocery story or gas station for the next 30 years. This is a huge problem worldwide, and there’s not a single miracle system that can solve this. Most people desire things that can be obtained fast, easy and without effort. If it takes work, people like to avoid it. Very few people have a strong enough passion to work for their success.
So if anyone that says that only a small percentage of people succeed with a company like Digital Altitude, then know that these are worldwide statistics in every high paying business or profession. And this is the very reason 2% of the world’s entire population earns over 90% of all the money in the world. As I mentioned, there’s no such thing as a overnight success system. And nor does Digital Altitude claim overnight success, but the success rate in Digital Altitude is currently the highest in the industry as of 2017. And I will attest and say every person that I have seen go through Digital Altitude’s Aspire training and stayed in long enough to learn the material has made money.
The truth is, Digital Altitude clearly isn’t for everyone. Digital Altitude is not for someone for example who needs to make fast money just to get their car fixed next week. It’s for people who are willing to put in the work to learn how to earn a successful living on the internet. The kind of living that allows you to live comfortably, be able to work part time but earn more than any full time job has ever paid you, and to give you and your family something truly better in life.
For those who haven’t experienced both “time” and “financial” freedom just don’t know what they are missing. Because we live in the world where most people have to sacrifice one for the other. But when you have the right kind of knowledge, you can create this life of success without limits. But it’s when you have that strong reason why, which pushes you and motivates you to create success no matter what.
I have personally worked with hundreds of students online, teaching them how I have earned multiple 6 figures online. And the first thing I ask each student is are you willing to work and do whatever it takes to learn what I know? There’s always a percentage of people who expects to gain something for nothing, looking for an overnight success miracle. I tell them that it doesn’t exist.
Then these people go away, find something on the internet that says something like “Just buy this special system for only $47. Make $5,000 per week Instantly!” Then they fall for it, and feel scammed when they make no money because they bought into such hype and believed it really was possible to buy what appears to be a “financial success pill”.
Don’t get me wrong, it certainly doesn’t have to take long for one to earn big money and a successful living online. But this depends on many factors, but most importantly how much you are willing to “grow” as person to expand your knowledge and skills, and that you have made the decision that giving up is not an option. This is how you have to think as an entrepreneur, because if not there’s no physical system or marketing strategy that will help you succeed. And this is what Digital Altitude is about. It’s for those who are ready to walk the walk and take financial control of their life once and for all. And in my opinion, it is one of the best opportunities you can be part of that will give you all the knowledge you need to succeed in the shortest amount of time possible.
If you’re someone that really wants to learn the nuts and bolts of making money online, I have a training course that you can access 100% free and learn how I have earned multiple 6 figures part time on the internet. This training is generic, and can be applied to any business you are in (not specific to Digital Altitude).

And as you read this review of Digital Altitude, please understand that everything written here is my own personal opinion of Digital Altitude. I was not compensated by this company or any company to write this “Digital Altitude Review”. Any opinion and information provided does not necessarily reflect the actual opinions and or reviews from the actual company, Digital Altitude LLC.

Become the champion and consultant that can teach others how to build a 7 figure digital business.
Now that you know about the products that Digital Altitude offers, I will now explain the Digital Altitude Business Opportunity and also the basics of the Digital Altitude Compensation Plan. Digital Altitude offers an excellent opportunity for anyone (old or young) to build a successful business online in 90 days or less. No matter if you are an experienced marketer or even a complete beginner without any experience.
The Digital Altitude Business Opportunity is not an MLM opportunity. It is a 3-tiered High Ticket Affiliate Program. For those aren’t familiar with the term “High Ticket”, it simply means you get to work with Top-Tier High Commissionable Products. You get access to a system with 60 Income Streams (19 of them pays a monthly residual commission). Earn up to 60% commissions over 3 tiers in amounts such as $37, $67, $127, $270, $900, $4,500, $7,650 and $12,600.
From my personal experience, most top tier business opportunities require $15,000-$20,000+ to even join as an affiliate. But Digital Altitude differs, allowing complete access to the Aspire Digital Marketing System for only $1, and then $37/month therefore. The purpose of this is to allow everyone who joins to see everything that Digital Altitude has to offer, before making the commitment to build a business here. So rather than charge a large upfront fee, you get to come on-board for $1, and you will even receive a phone call from a business success coach for a free 1-on-1 coaching session to go over your goals, and to provide you a game plan to get there.
As an affiliate, not only yourself, but all new members you bring into the business will receive a phone call from a business success coach to help them get started and get plugged into the system. I was formerly part of another business that had what they called “success coaches” who called new members for you. Not only was this service an extra $100/month, but they weren’t great. From personal experience, only about 20% of my new members were able to even reach a coach. And less than 15% actually received the phone call they were suppose to receive from the coach. And most of my members that did speak with a coach had a dissatisfying experience. They felt brushed off, didn’t find anything valuable they had to say, and most felt they were being coached by individuals who barely understood our industry.
But I must say that the success coaches from Digital Altitude has astounded me. Not only is it 100% free as an affiliate for a coach to call and help you and also your new members, they are fantastic at what they do! Every new member (100% so far) that I have brought into Digital Altitude was greeted with a welcome phone call by a success coach. They ensured my new members were properly plugged into the system and had access to all the resources that will help them reach their income goals. And they leave very well detailed notes for me about each of my members that they spoke with.
Now if you are an experienced marketer who’s built a team of a significant amount of people in a business, then I am sure you know that it can get stressful when everyone on your team is confused about what to do. So they send you email after email and blow your phone up because they feel you are their only source for support. You ever experienced that? As a sponsor in a business, your objective is to be a leader and lead by example. Not be a personal support agent for every individual member on your team. It will quickly grow old and turn your business of time freedom into an around the clock day job.
And I am sure that this is NOT why you chose to build a business. But with help from the system, coaches and other real people are working hard to help you and your team, your business will be easily manageable. And I feel it is one of the best blessings in this business, and I have learned to greatly appreciate it. As an affiliate of Digital Altitude, you get this feature and help of the coaches at no cost.
Before I get to that, I just want to say for those who know me knows that I am very picky when it comes to getting involved with business opportunities and programs to make money online. I get Clickbankers and owners of other affiliates programs all the time reaching out to me and asking me to promote their product. 99% of the time it’s a no. It’s not that I feel I am “too good” for them, it’s just that I must feel it is something that I can truly put my name in front of, stand behind and can look someone straight in the face and say “Yes, this opportunity has my approval”.
There’s so much garbage out there, so many make money online programs that’s only out just to make money off people who join, but teach them nothing and give them no real value. And there’s no way I could ever promote anything, put my name and face behind that I really didn’t believe in and didn’t believe could really help other people.
So as for my opinion of “Digital Altitude”, it is by far one of the best home business opportunities to ever hit the info marketing space. Very solid foundation, excellent leadership and elite level products to allow anyone to succeed who puts their mind to.
So this concludes my Digital Altitude Review. This company is great and I can only see it getting better from here on out. For only $1 to get your hands on a system that can truly potentially change your life is certainly a must. Should anything change, such as the Digital Altitude Compensation Plan, New product or anything exciting that I feel you should know, I will be sure to update this page or write a second “Digital Altitude Review”.
You may have been searching online for ways to earn extra cash through paid surveys, and came across “Global Test Market”. And you now may be searching for legitimate facts, such if it really works and does it really pay? etc..
This Global Test Market Review is going to show exactly what you need to know regarding this paid survey opportunity. So be sure that you read every word on this page to understand exactly if this is the right opportunity for you.
I am going to answer this question first, because this is likely the question that most people who are reading this will have. And the answer is yes.. Global Test Market is 100% legitimate.
Before writing this Global Test Market Review, I have done some extensive research on the company. They have an office based out of Bellevue, WA. And as a company, Global Test Market works with many large organizations in finding consumers who uses their various products. They collect survey results from the consumer, then relay the feedback to the company for compensation. Then Global Test Market in turn pays the consumer (the actual survey taker) in the form of either rewards or sometimes even cash.
According to Global Test Market’s website, there’s been over $14,000,000 in total rewards paid out to their members in the year of 2013 alone. And that is actually quite high for a survey company. And with over 500,000 Facebook followers, that number will likely continue to grow. So depending on when you are reading this Global Test Market Review, it can very much be higher this current year than it was then.
Now, as for the Global Test Market Surveys, here’s how it works… There are some generic surveys that anyone are able to take (for starters) and there are more higher paying surveys that are sent out periodically by email.
To participate in the higher paying surveys, you will have to meet certain criteria before being allowed to take the survey. Such as the survey may be seeking people that’s in a specific age group, or someone that’s used X product or is a customer of such and such company. You are invited by email to participate in each survey. The purpose of the surveys are for “market research” for the company you are voicing your opinion about. Helping them learn what their customers desire. And upon completion of surveys, you as the consumer will earn points from Global Test Market. And these points can be redeemed for giftcards and cashcards etc.
I will be honest saying that Global Test Market is actually a great company. There’s really nothing bad at all to say about them. Taking surveys with Global Test Market is a great hobby for those that likes sharing their opinion and being heard by large companies to assist with their market research.
Now’s here’s the only “Global Test Market” Cons that I see… The first one is, qualifying for surveys.
As mentioned above, you have to qualify and meet certain criteria to participate in surveys. So off the bat, you are very limited to the surveys you can take. You are invited by email periodically to participate in the surveys you are qualified for. And this is by far one of the most frustrating things to their consumers.
And the main other thing is most people see Global Test Market as a “money making opportunity” when it’s actually just a part time rewards hobby. Because most people in general who search for online paid survey opportunities are seeking ways to make money on the internet.
So if you are one of these people, and either joined or thought about joining Global Test Market because you need extra money, then unfortunately paid surveys are not the right opportunities. And not only are you paid in mostly rewards, it’s not like you can just spend an entire day taking survey after survey to earn a ton of rewards for a big pay out.
As mentioned, you are limited and can only take the surveys you are invited to take. So Global Test Market, or almost any online paid survey opportunity isn’t the way to go to earn an extra income from home. There are more “lucrative” and less time consuming ways to do so.
But if you are one of the people that’s just looking for what some would consider a “fun part time hobby”, then Global Test Market is one of the best paid survey opportunities that you can become part of.
Now for those that were seeking a real way to earn that extra income from home and still do it part time, click the button below to learn more about how to work from home. Which includes how I was able to earn over $6,000 online in just 24 hours.
We are living in a time where a lot of people are turning to internet based surveys to earn an extra income online.
Now the question is, can you really make money with these big survey companies such as mysurvey.com, surveyjunkie, swagbucks, and surveymoneymachine etc?
Now let’s take one of the most popular survey companies like “My Survey” (mysurvey.com). If you’re the type of person that likes to shop, you love testing and trying new products, then a company like MySurvey will “reward you” for taking a survey and sharing your opinion about various products you purchased.
Now the key thing when it comes to online survey companies are rewards. You are not always paid cash, you are often given gift cards, points or discounts on products for sharing your opinion. Same goes for surveyjunkie, surveymoneymachine and swagbucks.
To be quite honest, survey income opportunities are primarily for just a hobby. It’s very difficult to earn a significant daily income with any kind of paid survey opportunity without putting in tons on hours each day.
If a person likes spending 15-20 hours of their life for each $50 they earn, then it’s obviously not the best use of their time if their primary objective is to make money.
Now here is why survey companies hook so many people in…. For one, it’s free to join. And on the bright side for example…. (and the only bright side I see) if you already purchased or let’s say you were already planning on purchasing a $900 MacBook pro, then it would be extremely motivating to go ahead and purchase it knowing that you have a survey company that will give you a $75 giftcard to the apple store for sharing your opinion of it.
But the psychology behind surveys and survey companies like mysurvey.com is they actually motivate people to purchase products that they may not “really” would have purchased without the incentive to do so.
Now here’s what I mean… Let’s say you been thinking of buying a new smart TV but not exactly made up your mind to buy it yet. But then you get an email from MySurvey (or whatever the survey company is) that they will pay you $100 cash for your opinion on a specific smart TV.
Since you already had the idea of possibly purchasing a smart TV, but now knowing you can receive compensation after purchasing will actually motivate you even more to actually make the purchase.
And this is how the survey company them self make money, by getting their members to purchase various products.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, but do you now see the psychology behind why survey companies are so popular?
Which explains why it’s more a hobby rather than a genuine money making opportunity.
If you like the idea of how most paid online surveys work, then why not. Even I have taken surveys in the past and made a little money. And it’s great knowing that when you buy stuff, it’s possible they may have a survey available that may compensate you for it.
But if you are truly and strictly looking to Make Money… Such as earning a “real” residual income online that could possibly replace your job and perhaps RETIRE YOU…. then paid surveys is NOT where it’s at.
Consider how I have personally built a 6 Figure Income online, without spending long hours at my computer each day, without making calls, and without having to involve family and friends…
In fact, I was able to QUIT my full time day job and make more money working online part time than any job has ever paid me…
If you have been looking for real information and the real truth whether or not Motor Club of America is a scam, then continue reading. I promise that you will learn the real answer why some people are saying MCA Motor Club of America is a scam.
And as you read, understand there’s nowhere in this article am I going to ask you to join Motor Club of America.
So please read this entire page if you really want to know the truth about MCA aka Motor Club of America.
Now I am not going to explain all the facts that most people already know/heard. Such as MCA has been in business for over 80+ years, they are based in Oklahoma etc. Because you can find this information all over the internet and even on the Motor Club of America home website.
So the main question… Is Motor Club of America a scam? The fact and short answer is no. But I am going to share with you why so many people see MCA as a scam and a pyramid scheme. But if MCA was a real scam, they would be shut down by now and listed on the FTC.gov website as a scam. And the US FTC (United States Federal Trade Commission) is the only 100% accurate website that will tell you if a company based in the US is a scam or not. Although the BBB isn’t as accurate as the FTC (as the BBB isn’t a government website), the BBB does have MCA listed under TVC as B rated.
The absolute number one reason people feel MCA is a scam is because 95% of MCA Associates/Affiliates are promoting MCA unethically by promoting MCA in a way that misleads people into joining Motor Club of America for the wrong reason. And I’ll explain how here in a bit, but I first want to briefly explain what MCA is and how associates are compensated for referring others.
Motor club of America is a motor/auto club company (just as the name sounds) that provides roadside assistance and various other benefits services. Very similar to AAA. They are owned by a company known as TVC, which stands for The Vital Connection. And together they provide customers unlimited roadside assistance, medical benefits, pharmacy discounts, death benefit (similar to life insurance), rental car assistance, and the list goes on for what they offer you for a monthly cost.
Now the affiliate/associate program is for those that decide they want to refer people to MCA and get compensation for it. Now I don’t think it’s necessary to explain the entire compensation plan, but the basic compensation an associate earns is $80 for each member they refer to MCA benefits services. You are basically compensated 200% up to $90 of what a customer had to pay when they joined. And I think most would agree at $80-$90 per referral, one could earn an excellent income working at this if you refer enough people. And the truth is, some people do earn an excellent income with MCA, but NOT everyone.
Although MCA offers great benefits and a great compensation plan to refer others, there’s NO REQUIREMENT by MCA that you must purchase MCA’s benefits service to sign up as an associate to make money referring others. The only part of the compensation you miss out on if you don’t purchase the service is the Matrix Rewards and the $6 commission override from other associates in your downline. Obviously if one is going to decide to become an MCA Associate, it is obviously beneficial to have the service for yourself to know what it is before referring it to others. As you will come off ethical in your marketing by owning the service you are promoting. But again, it’s not required to buy the MCA service to become an TVC MCA Associate.
Now when you come across people’s MCA ads or watch someone’s MCA video on Youtube, most people are telling you things like: 1 “Turn $40 into $1,000 per week”, 2 “Make $5,000 per week with MCA” and 3 “MCA is now hiring, earn X dollars per week”. Which is compelling enough to peak almost anyone’s interest, especially if they are searching for ways to make money.
Now the issues with 1 and 2 is most people incomes in MCA are not even close to $1,000-$5,000 per week. Probably less than 1% earns more than $1,000 per week in MCA consistently. So what’s wrong with this is it gives people an unrealistic expectation of the money they will earn when they join. Although there’s nothing wrong with telling people they can “potentially” earn such incomes, but it is against the the US FTC code of ethics, and also MCA’s Associate guidelines to make an income claim in a direct sales business without having a clear income disclaimer.
And with number 3 (claiming that MCA is hiring) is also wrong. Saying that MCA is hiring and attaching an expected income level is 100% illegal. For one, saying Motor Club of America is hiring is implying that there’s a job offer on the line, when there’s not. MCA does however, have an office with real employees, such as the people you call when you need to have your car towed. But the “MCA Referral Program” is NOT a job offer.
So telling people that they can make a lot of money by joining MCA (buying the membership), and after they join, tell them to just tell others the same thing, is WHY Motor Club of America is seen by many as pyramid scheme. Although it’s clearly not, but you do see why, right?
Watch My Video Below to See Examples of Many Associates That are Misrepresenting What MCA Actually is.
Now when you come across an article, a blog, or a video that says MCA is a scam, it’s from 1 of 3 types of people…
The first type of person that says “MCA is a scam” is based on what I just explained above. These kind of people find an MCA ad or video that tells them they can make X dollars per week with MCA. And all they have to do is just pay $40 and start making money right away. They join, they give it maybe 30 days, and if they don’t make the money as claimed in the ad or video they watched, then they say MCA is a scam. And this is why you may see Motor Club of America Complaints on the internet.
And when you look at it from their prospective, I clearly understand. Because if someone is dangerously in need of money, such as a struggling single mom, someone that’s unemployed, bankrupt etc that sacrificed possibly their last $40 because they were told they would earn thousands per week if they would just join but it didn’t happen for them, then they technically were scammed. But it was because of the MCA Associate or third party website who mislead them and gave them this unrealistic expectation. Not MCA specifically.
Does that make sense?
And I am in no way saying that it’s wrong to tell people they can earn a lot of money with MCA. Because they can. But people need to have realistic expectations (especially when they are new) and needs to know up front that the average person earns little to no income at all with MCA. Maybe it doesn’t need to framed that way. But my point is people needs to surely know up front that it’s going to take WORK, TIME and EFFORT. And they will be required to learn and acquire some new skills before they can earn these huge incomes that most people claim.
If you are an MCA Associate, know that it’s better for your business anyway to give people a disclaimer that not everyone will get the results some of the top MCA affiliates/associates are getting. And more importantly, treat your customers/associates like they are real people, and not leads, sales and numbers. People will stick around longer and you will receive fewer chargebacks if you tell people the truth upfront.
The second type of person that says MCA is a scam are what I call “surreptitious savages”. These are the wolf in sheep clothing type of marketers who knows that MCA isn’t a scam. But they like to write false content on the internet and tell people that MCA is a scam. But then at the end of their video/article tells you to join their similar business opportunity instead. Since there’s hundreds of people every day searching and wondering if Motor Club of America is a scam, these savages figure if they can convince these people that MCA is a scam, then they’ll likely buy/join what they have to offer.
This is very unethical. It’s like for instance, Ford suddenly begins telling lies and putting out 100% false information about the Chevy Corvette z06 just in hopes they can gain more of Chevy’s potential customers. But it’s exactly what these beasts that’s spreading lies about MCA are doing. My advice, never join/buy something from people that do this.
And lastly, the third kind of person that says “MCA Motor Club of America is a scam” are MCA Associates themselves. They also figure if hundreds of people are searching for info related to MCA being a scam, they can write an article or post a video titled “Motor Club of America Scam” to get people to click it, so they can get more customers if they can convince people that MCA is not a scam.
But when MCA Associates do this, most of them just say, “MCA is not a scam. Here’s the money I made etc, now please join me”. The problem is this only works on a small number of prospects. Because if someone is searching and wanting to know the truth whether or not Motor Club of America is a scam, then they have already likely seen many other people’s claims to have made money with MCA. They now are seeking real details and real proof that MCA isn’t a scam.
Overall, I truly believe MCA is a fantastic company. I absolutely love the benefits and there’s nothing else out there that offers what MCA gives their customers. But the only problem I see with MCA is they don’t have a strict enough compliance department to enforce how MCA Associates should promote MCA in their business. All the rules are in place and everyone who signed the associate agreement agreed to abide by the terms. But most associates just ignore it and promote MCA in any way they possibly can to earn a quick sale from referring it, even if it’s in an unethical way. And MCA isn’t cracking down enough to stop this from happening.
I’ll be honest in saying that back when I first joined, I done what I was told and promoted MCA in a way that most are promoting it. I was told to buy this $40 program and I could make thousands of dollars per week. Then after I joined, I was told to share a link on my Facebook wall every day, start posting links on Craigslist and get people to “watch a video”.
If you are in MCA, have you been told to do this? Lol
Well I was then told I should be making $1,000-$1,500 per week if I done that consistently. But obviously, doing that didn’t earn me much money at all. So after long hours and tirelessly telling people every day to join this $40 program, I managed to get a sale every now and then. But nothing that most people would consider impressive. Still was very far from earning $1,000+ per week.
But it wasn’t long before I learned something special from a wealthy mentor in this industry. I then started going about promoting my MCA business in a different manner than most people. I stopped using the 3rd party marketing systems that misrepresents what MCA actually is. I started giving people real expectations and told people the truth about what they needed to know regarding MCA. I personally really believed in the product and elaborated mostly about the benefits before telling people there was an affiliate program attached to it.
And when I done that, I was able to earn well over $1,000 per week in MCA for almost 7 months straight. I brought in over 450+ customers into MCA and have helped many other associates get results and earn a steady income in their MCA Business.
Now, no matter if you are currently in MCA or someone that’s on the fence considering joining MCA, you now know the “real truth” whether or not Motor Club of America is a scam. Don’t let anyone force you into believing that it is a scam. Because I guarantee if they are truly trying to say MCA is a scam, then they just want to recruit you into some other business
So if you are already in MCA, know that it is really a great company. But it’s up to you how you represent the company and what your beliefs are about the service they offer. And based on that is what’s going to truly determine the income you will earn promoting Motor Club of America.
Now I am currently no longer active with MCA, as I am more involved with other internet marketing activities. But if you are interested in learning how I was able to create my extraordinary success online in such a short period of time, click the link below to learn exactly how I do it.

People often wonder what does is truly take to succeed being an entrepreneur. The truth is, it is not at all difficult when you are determined for success and go about it with the right mindset.
You only struggle when you “resist” taking the necessary actions you need to succeed.
There’s only a few people on the planet who were born with silver spoons in their mouth. Or in other words, there’s only a few who were born with rich parents and inherited their wealth without having to sacrifice anything to get it. The remainder of people who created wealth in their life had to “work” to get it.
Here’s a powerful quote that I once learned…
Entrepreneurship is doing for a short while what most people “won’t”, so you can spend the rest of your life like most people “can’t”.
I wrote another blog post some time ago that’s titled “How to be your own boss” that’s going to touch on some points that I am about to discuss.
Some people only look at the benefits of being an entrepreneur, but fail to look at what it actually takes to succeed being one. And most people who find it difficult to succeed are typically the people that are stuck on a simple decision to take action and actually do it.
But even once you make the decision, it still takes both consistent and persistent daily actions to succeed. That’s why you may have heard, “It’s not what you do that causes your breakthrough, it’s what you do daily”. Nobody creates success overnight. It happens by being consistent.
If you’re one of the people that see stuff on the internet that tell you that you can succeed and earn a ton of money with their product by doing nothing, then know that couldn’t be further from the truth. You would be wasting your time and throwing away your money.
People are easily bought into things that say: It’s FAST, it’s EASY, It’s FREE, It’s INSTANT & AUTOMATIC, PAYS LOTS OF CASH OUT OF THIN AIR!
If seeing words like that excites you, then this probably says something about your mindset. Because successful entrepreneurship is not always easy, it doesn’t always come instantly, it DOES take effort, and you will always have to give something in return for your success. Because there’s no such thing as something for nothing.
If this were not so, then the quote below would not be true:
Entrepreneurship is doing for a short while what most people “won’t”, so you can spend the rest of your life like most people “can’t.
And if you have struggled to make money on the internet or in your past business, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you were bought into the obvious “hype” as in the examples above. But I am sure you do understand that I am telling the truth. There is a reason that only 2% of the human population earns 96% of all the money in the world. While the 98% of people earns only 4% of it.
Most people rather live their life and accept their struggles as it is and learn to live life with the cards they were dealt. Or some even cry about being broke, being poor and struggling every day. But when it comes to changing their life for the better, they make some kind of excuse as to why they can’t make it happen.
And for example, some people’s excuses are simply they don’t have time to do anything to better their life. But in my opinion, if you can make time to eat and sleep, you can surely make time to create your success. Which could soon buy you all the free time you will ever want. Also, some of these same people that claim they don’t have time, wouldn’t miss their favorite sports game or their favorite TV show for anything in the world.
It’s all about what you value most. It’s not even about money either. You can create success being an entrepreneur or anything in life when you have a strong enough “reason” why you need to accomplish it.
If you’re the type of person that easily gives up on something at the slightest bit of difficulty or because of a single challenge comes along, then entrepreneurship is probably not for you. Unless you change, that is. Because when you truly have a strong enough reason why you desire to succeed, quitting is NEVER an option.
Also if you’re the type that’s always looking for a quick and easy way to gain something for nothing, again, being an entrepreneur is probably not for you. Because you certainly only gain what you have put into it.
Success will likely never happen for the curious, the half steppers or the doubtful. You must dive in with both feet and truly determined for it as if your life depends on it. And from my personal experience, you want to know the kind of people that typically succeed the fastest in their business?
People who have kids/family that they are struggling to care for. Single moms/dads with low incomes. People who are working a deadbeat job that they know they’ll never be able retire from. People who were laid off from a great paying job, people who are disabled/sick, and people who’s been poor most of their life, in debt and sick and tired of being in that situation.
All the types of people above have very strong reasons why they need to succeed in life.
If you’re in one of the situations above, what will it really do for you to be able to earn your yearly income in a single month or week? While having plenty of free time to spend with the ones you love each and every day.
What will it do for you when you can write a check and pay off your mortgage and all your debt at once?
And what will it really do for you to pay cash for that medical operation you or a family member of yours really need?
If there was ever any secret to being a successful entrepreneur, that would be it. Having a strong reason why you need to succeed. The rest of what it takes to be an entrepreneur takes only focus and instruction from those that’s living the kind of life that you desire to live.
You have landed on this page because you are looking for information regarding InboxDollars. You may be wondering is InboxDollars a scam and if it’s even legitimate. In any case, on this page you will find my InboxDollars.com review and what I personally think about the company and opportunity.
InboxDollars (InboxDollars.com) is a rewards company that compensated consumers for taking online, reading emails, testing new products/services, shop online and even play video games. They work with fortune 500 companies and help them by getting the opinions of the consumers that use the products and relay the information and statistics back to the company.
One of the biggest questions people ask “Is InboxDollars a scam”? InboxDollars.com is certainly a legitimate company and is one of the furthest things away from being a scam. In fact, they are a BBB Accredited business and have been in business for quite some time. And InboxDollars is looked at as one of the more respected survey companies by many consumers.
The answer is yes. There’s been many consumers that’s taken surveys, reviewed products, and shopped online etc and have been paid for their time and efforts.
But here’s the truth about making money with “InboxDollars”…
If you are looking for an opportunity to make money from home and truly earn an extra income, then InboxDollars is not the opportunity.
InboxDollars.com is more less a hobby. Yes you can make money, but you certainly will not get rich taking surveys, playing games and reviewing products online. InboxDollars pays you $5 for signing up and creating an account, and surveys range from 50 cents up to $50 per survey, depending on what it is.
Most of the surveys that are easy to do and doesn’t require you to purchase a product typically will pay less than $1.00. But the biggest concern amongst consumers is that you have to earn at least $30 before they will pay you. This is common among survey companies, needing to have earned a certain amount before any payout.
So if you are expecting “InboxDollars” as something that’s going to make you a lot of money and fast, and I sorry to say that they won’t. If you love taking surveys, you love shopping online, buying products and playing games, then why not join Inboxdollars.com and take advantage of the compensation just as a hobby?
Now most people that pursue working with InboxDollars.com initially pursued them because they truly want a way to make some real money online. Not for just a hobby. And what I mean by “real” money, is enough money to where someone can pay their bills and perhaps make enough to money to replace the income at their job.
There is a way you can earn from $100, and even up to an upwards of $3,000+ per day online. If you are truly interested in knowing how you can become an internet based entrepreneur and earn a real full time income working in your spare time, click below to learn more…
