Last week, I was approached by a snake oil SEO vendor, who shall remain unnamed. For the low, low price of $49 a month, you can dominate the search engines and directories. And then there’s a premium tier at $100 a month and a top tier at $200 a month. At the top tier, you get featured placement in their directory that gets no traffic. They themselves get no traffic to their site and have no search engine rankings.
The best part is that you can join them as a reseller of these services, for which you get compensated an undisclosed amount per lead. And as you add people in your downline, who are below you in the pyramid scheme, you get a share of their earnings. And you’re not just a multi-level marketer– oh no– you’re an owner in the company with stock options. It says so right there in your back-end– “stock option qualified”. Now is your time to seize your share of the internet marketing riches.
Like most “get rich quick” schemes that play on user ignorance, the 5 minute infomercial they show talks all about how great it is to make a lot of money, but doesn’t actually say what they do or what you do. If you’re not really helping businesses get more local leads, then whatever money you take from them is just a scam. Ping me if you want to know who the company is.
