Current Work-From-Home Business and Jobs Review Time: December 2011 - Present
Previous Reviewed: April 2003, January 2005, February 2006, July 2008, November 2010
We do a lot of different reviews here at Consumer-Rated.com, but none more popular than the work-from-home programs. We get more request for reviews on work-from-home businesses and jobs than all other review types put together. This is why we have done more reviews on work-from-home businesses and jobs than any other type of program or service.
The reason we get so many requests is that it is a dream for a person to make money in the comfort of your own home. The problem is that many work-from-home sites know this, and it makes people who desire to work-from-home an easy target for their scams. So we are always setting out to eliminate these scams for our viewers and offer legitimate choices for them to choose from.
Our Research and Review Process
First off their are so many different types of work-from-home opportunities to review. So the first thing we do is eliminate any of the programs that we feel that are just too good to be true (such as the get-rich-quick-schemes). We also eliminate any franchise business opportunities because those usually are very expensive (usually in the thousands of dollars to get started). We also do not review any MLM (Multi-Level-Marketing or matrix schemes). We are not saying any of these programs are not good for the fact we have never reviewed them and you may find some that are good but usually these type of programs have very high failure rates.
What we do review is work-from-home businesses and job programs that can earn a decent living and is a reality. For example stuffing envelope opportunities are usually scams and it is not a reality to make an income worth your time. So we will not review anything like that.
When we do work-from-home business and job reviews we usually recruit the most volunteers. We will usually recruit up to 100 consumer volunteers to do work-from-home reviews and the reason is we usually get a lot of variances in reviews. So to get a complete picture and to find true five-star rated programs we use all the opinions we can get.
As you can imagine we run across so many scams doing this review. Some of the best website presentations proved to be the worst programs. They can sell you on what they are offering, but cannot back it up with what they provide. This is very commonly seen when doing work-from-home business and job reviews.
There are some really good programs out there, so don't think there is absolutely nothing available. Because we did so many reviews we did find some good programs and many did not even quite make our five-star rating but were still good programs.
The Companies Who Received Our Five-Star Rating
We did find a few programs that made the five-star rating. They offered something worth value and did produce income working from home. Usually we received much more than the price we paid in just the resources, tools, training an software they provide. We always look at this in itself of value. Also we looked at most importantly - RESULTS!
The criteria we used to rate the programs were:
1) The actual results promised in the website were legitimate and could be achieved.
2) How soon we earned back our registration fee investment, and started earning positive income.
3) How detailed the training was and how easy it was to understand and follow the program.
4) If this was a work-from-home jobs program the program offered gave actual jobs directly and we did not have to apply to all the jobs to get work.
5) There were no hidden costs once a member. Everything was included in the program.
6) Support was there when we needed it and was not an extra charge.
7) If we were no satisfied with the results we could get our registration fee refunded as they stated.
The programs we gave five-star ratings did excellent in meeting these criteria. The work-from-home programs we gave five-star ratings actually started producing the results they promised when we were a month into their programs. We did make money right away and it keeps growing with the effort we make.
You can make a decent living working from home if you spend the time to follow the training they provide, put in a valid effort, and don't give up too quickly.
The most important criteria in rating these programs was that they had to offer a 100%-satisfaction money-back guarantee. All of the programs that made our five-star ratings offer this guarantee and most important they all honored their guarantee with no hassles. We learned the hard way that it is VERY IMPORTANT THAT THE PROGRAM OFFERS AND HONORS A GUARANTEE SO YOU DO NOT GET SCAMMED OUT OF YOUR MONEY.
By offering and most important honoring their guarantee is proving that they truly stand behind their program.
We have done past reviews on data-entry job programs in 2003, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010. We have two programs that have made the last two reviews in 2008 and 2010 (Work-at-Home-Jobs.tv and WebColleagues.com). We have two new programs which is new program from (ReliableTypist.com) and (FixedProfits.com).
Just a Few Facts
That there so many work-from-home opportunities to choose from. Also many of these programs even the ones we gave five-star ratings to will be determined by your own personal views and opinions. Like we mentioned we received many different opinions on these types of programs. It all comes down to your own preference and at least with the five-start rated programs we present you can do so with out losing your hard earned money.
Recent Stats and Proof These Programs Work
If you would like to see some recent stats, feel free to contact us; we will show you our earnings. We are still continuing to use these programs and are making no false statements here.
We are Web-Assured because we want consumers to know whom they are dealing with. We are not a blank face hiding behind a website like so many others. We want you to value our volunteers and our company's reviews.
No Affiliation With The Companies We Reviewed
Also you will not see that we have any affiliation with these companies we review. The problem you will see from the so-called review sites. (Please read our "Endorsement Notice" at the bottom of this page).
BE CAREFUL OF FRAUDULENT REVIEW SITES
Many so-called review sites are popping up on the Internet today. Be careful of some specific signs such as steering which we list on our home page as well as some well known fake review sites for your reference. The best way to assure the legitimacy of the review site is simply contact the site and ask simple questions to see if you even get a response. Our e-mail is
Ask these other review sites if they stand behind their reviews as we do. See below for details.
If you pay the registration processing fees for any of the programs we list, based on our reviews, and are not satisfied, simply return it according to guidelines of each particular Web site. If you have any problem returning the product. Contact Us and we will assist you; if need be, we will give you your money back.
All of the above programs are five-star rated. The number rating system is based on the volunteer personal overall review. Any program with a 90 or above rating is a five-star rated and an excellent program. You choice from any of these programs should be based on your personal choice and comfort of the program.
OVERVIEW AND VALUE
When we originally reviewed this program by Work-at-Home-Jobs.tv back in 2008 and 2010 we felt at that time it was a great program. Since then this program has added many more job opportunities that are second to none. In 2010 this program won the members' choice award. One of the reasons they won this is that they offered the largest selection of work-at-home jobs in one place, and now they have added to that since. Just some of the jobs and training they will offer is online auditor/online research, data entry, virtual assistant, Internet marketing, article publishing, proofreading, credit card application processing and much more.
You will get all the training, tools, jobs, resources, self-help, home business preparedness, software and jobs for free. The value of what they offer is too much to list if you add it all up and it is given for free with your membership.
PERFORMANCE AND EASE OF USE
The best part is that this is not just a website that lists jobs for you to apply to; About 99% of the work-at-home opportunities will not offer the jobs, just a list of places that you have to apply to. With Work-at-Home-Jobs.tv complete training and jobs program you will be doing the actual work and getting paid. So you will go through the training for any of the several job tasks they present, then apply your self to the job and get paid. This is so hard to find a program that offers all of these jobs in one place that is 100% legitimate.
You will see that these jobs are recession proof as well as being a great opportunity. The reason is that the more that companies downsize, the more opportunities open for work-at-home programs such as this on by Work-at-Home-Jobs.tv.
Some of our volunteer reviewers were making money in the first few days they started. By the end of the review some of the reviewers were making $800 or more per day. We even had a couple volunteers hit the $1000 a day mark a few times. Most of our volunteers are still doing this program and we will keep this up to date with any new reviews.
Work-at-Home-Jobs.tv offers complete and free email support for their training and jobs. You simply email them with your question and will get a response usually within a few hours. They do also offer phone support as an option and we never needed to use the phone support with the great email support we received.
Work-at-Home-Jobs will not charge you for the training, resources, tools, and of course they do not charge for the jobs. The only charge they require is a one-time online hosting set-up fee and a personal software license fee. This is so you can access all of what they offer directly online with your own personal secure login ID. Like a few other programs we reviewed they use a online work-at-home scheduler which costs them for every member they process. So it is understandable for them to charge this one-time fee.
As we already mentioned you are getting in upwards of thousands of dollars value for a one-time price they charge for the members set-up access fee of $49.00
Note: This program does fill up with members and they do close the site to new members once they get filled. If they are filled up try back in a week or two to see if they are accepting new members. Usually they are looking for new workers every couple of weeks.
OVERVIEW AND VALUE
We had the privilege of reviewing the newest type of work-from-home program Web Colleagues is offering. We are so impressed with this program that this was an easy pick for our five-star rating. This is a true make money work-from-home program where you get paid for doing very little typing. No ads to type or anything like that. The program teaches you how to create and type content-articles for publishers and blogs, and then how to post them to the Internet and get paid.
This is one of the most popular type of work-from-home businesses available on the Internet that anyone can honestly do. Out of all the programs we reviewed we saw many freelance type of home businesses. This is so popular because of the importance of content rich web businesses which rely on updated content for their business success.
Webcolleagues.com has teamed up with thousands of publishing and blog sites and provides all the training and tools for their members to work directly with these sites. It would have taken us years to compile the details of this program. We have reviewed this site in the past and the program has been completely updated since our last review. It offers even more income generating opportunities than ever before.
PERFORMANCE AND EASE OF USE
Web Colleagues will train you how to easily create articles even if you are not the creative type. We had fun creating our own articles and content, it really is so simple to do and it is rewarding. With the guidance, tools and training they gave us, we are typing our article projects in less than a half an hour, and you will be surprised how many sources are willing to pay you for simple articles. We are getting paid from many sources; this has created a multiple stream of residual income for us that is paid to us a few times a month. This is a completely different type of program than we have seen from all of the other work-from-home business programs.
Web Colleagues is really a work-from-home business and work-from-home job combined. You will be doing simple jobs as your own home business. You have total control over your own business and the jobs you will perform.
Many people ask out of all the programs we ever reviewed which would you recommend for a complete beginner on the Internet. This would be the program we suggest to those novice users who ask this question.
You will see in the training program that Web Colleagues will show you current members earnings and their success. This is a real motivation factor to actually see this program work right in front of you. We did have many volunteer reviewers making hundreds of dollars a day with this program. It will take dedication and effort as with any legitimate program, but it does pay off. The best part about that last statement is Web Colleagues will tell you the same thing before you join. Here is a quote directly from their home page:
"We have designed this program with great detail. We only want people that are serious about a legitimate work-at-home program. If you are willing to put in the effort to learn what we show you, do the job tasks, then this program works. Please do not join our program if you DO NOT plan on trying to learn and apply yourself to this job."
We never found any non-legitimate sites make that statement.
Web Colleagues offers complete and free email support for their training and jobs. You simply email them with your question and will get a response usually within a few hours. They do also offer phone support as an option and we never needed to use the phone support with the great email support we received.
As with all the programs we gave five star to we did not have to pay any additional fees once we paid the one-time members' set-up access fee. The great guidance and support we have received has launched us into some nice earnings. Web Colleagues does offer a 60-day money back guarantee.
This program in the time it will save you in doing a legitimate work-from-home business is worth ten times the one-time price they charge for the members' set-up access fee of $47.00
OVERVIEW AND VALUE
This program was actually referred to us by many of our followers. We received several emails telling us to review this program because they have heard a lot of success coming from this program. Upon first view we were skeptical because it falls within our get-rich-quick criteria. However, we did decide to give it a try and to our surprise it lived up to the hype.
We have reviewed similar programs that cost upwards of $500 and did not stack up to this program. The value in itself was worth every penny we spent for the program which was only $39.00 and with no hidden costs.
Included is a revolutionary software that will help you get your ads placed on Facebook and Plenty of Fish so you stand alone. With Facebook's and Plenty of Fish's demographic targeting this program really taps on how to profit from it.
You will be able to get everything set up and ready to start earning money within a day or two (depending on how much time you spend on the program each day).
PERFORMANCE AND EASE OF USE
Everyone has heard of Facebook and everyday people are earning thousands of dollars off this Facebook. The reason Facebook is a great target to earn money is the over 600 million current users they have. It is the biggest platform to target in the world. Television media used to be the big thing and now that does not even stand in the same room as Facebook. FixedProfits.com has found a simple way to use these users and make money.
The program comes complete with step by step training which includes video and text tutorials. You will get a software program that is so revolutionary maybe even controversial but it is 100% legal. The software will exploit a glitch in how Facebook targets their users with their advertisements. The thing many of you may be worried about is what if Facebook finds this glitch? The answer is - this also makes Facebook money as well and they do know of this glitch but turn their head to it, so this opportunity is here to stay and make people a lot of money.
The pay reports on FixedProfits.com are real. The developers of this program have made almost $400K in one month. A few of our members did $3,000 + days already in profits. To get started will cost a little additional money for a Website (which they show you how to get a website and edited for as little as $4.99 a month). Also there is no programming or web design experience needed, any novice person who follows their directions can do this program.
If you are not willing to spend any additional money what so ever then we will not suggest to do this program. However, you can get started and build on as little as $30 to $40 a month if you are willing to spend that to get started. We had budgeted a few of our Volunteer reviewers that amount of money. By the third month they were profiting $2,000 a month off that initial investment. So if you make a small investment it can really pay off and keep growing.
Support for this program was incredible in the time they responded to our emailed questions. We never had any issues that could not be resolved through their support.
When we started this program back in December of 2012 FixedProfits.com offered a 30-day refund period. Since that time they have extended their refund period to now 60 days.
This may be the best value we have ever rated for what you will get for a total of a one-time payment of $39.00
OVERVIEW AND VALUE
As we have mentioned we reviewed a lot of work-from-home freelance writing business and opportunities. Many did not stack up to our review criteria and many were just too expensive to even try. It seems because this is the hottest business opportunity on the Internet many sites are charging crazy amounts of money for their programs. We saw some programs for as high as $300. The ones we did review (and there were a lot) we kept it in a reasonable range under $100.
It turns out that the best freelance writing program was also the most inexpensive. The program that made our five-star rating was ReliableTypist.com. The program was presented by Inkwell Publishing and authored by a famous freelancer Yuwanda Black. We were able to even contact Yuwanda and chat for a bit. She is a very professional freelance writer and quite famous as we found out. You can do a search for her and will get great background knowledge of her.
Yuwanda has been features in newspapers, magazines and been praised by popular editorials such as the Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur.com, and PowerHomeBiz.com to just name a few. It is important to know that you are getting knowledge directly from someone who knows this business better than anyone in her field. So why not learn from the best.
PERFORMANCE AND EASE OF USE
What she gives you in her program is priceless, with several tutorials in many different categories of being a successful online freelancer that can work from home. She mentions this program is for anyone; even with no writing experience and she was correct. Here program takes you from a novice beginner to an expert freelance writer all within a few days of going through here programs.
Doing work-from-home freelancing can bring a residual income with this program and what you learn. You actually will put in an effort at the beginning that will reward you in the end and by doing less work than when you started.
You will not need to spend any additional money to get started once your start the program. Yuwanda even makes a point of that in here program. We will also confirm that we never spent any additional money for this program. There is just too much to list on this program in this short review, we will tell you to take a look for yourself to see everything you get.
When we contacted the support we were expecting to get some personal assistant of Yuwanda, and who did we get? Yuwanda herself would actually answer any questions we had and did not charge us a penny for her valuable time. This in itself received the highest support rating we ever gave.
If you really want to do a manageable work-from-home program, then we will suggest to give this program a try. Yuwanda offers a complete 100% satisfaction guarantee of 30 days.
As we mentioned out of all the freelance home business programs this was the least expensive and turns out to be the best for a one-time charge of $44.95
We need your help rating current projects. We pay all the fees. You keep the program you review and all we require is a short review. For More Details:
