The Accelerated Income Program claims to help you give you access to in demand link posting job positions. In reality, it sells you into a training program using misleading tactics.
In this review, I’ll show you exactly what this program is really about so you can decide for yourself if it’s worth buying into.
Accelerated Income Review
I came across the Accelerated Income program today, and immediately recognised it as yet another fake link posting scam. There are some slight differences with this site, but it’s without a doubt the same old scam.
In this case, Susan Whitman claims to have created the program:
She claims to have been a struggling mother of two daughters who lost her job, so she desperately needed a way to make more money. Then suddenly, she had a “chilling day that changed her life” and discovered how to post links online. Now she’s rich and life is great!
Cool. Except her entire story is fake and she’s not even real:
As you can see, the same story is used by other fake alias’ such as Kelly Simmons and Heather Smith. And there are MANY more alias’ in use across many similar websites, which all tell the same story. And they all sell people into the same thing.
What Is Accelerated Income – Legit Link Posting Job?
According to the sales page, Accelerated Income is a “certified, proven and guaranteed home based business job” that will generate you $379 per day. Guaranteed.
All you need to do is signup and post links for big companies to get paid. These companies supposedly pay you ‘per link processed’ too, so the program is marketed as a JOB.
There are SO many holes in this claim that it’s hard to know where to begin…
First of all, there is NOTHING “certified” about this program. Period. The so called Wealth Development Certification Program is non-existent, it’s literally something they made up.
Second, link posting is NOT a job. The actual placement of links is a very simple task that anyone can do. So it’s not something companies are paying anywhere near that kind of money to have done. When they do, they hire workers from lesser developed countries who work for WAY less than this. What the heck is a “home based business job” anyway??? It’s either a business or a job, it can’t be both!
Third, the income is by no means guaranteed. They reveal this within their very own income disclaimer shown below…
The testimonials and examples used are exceptional results, which do not apply to the average purchaser, and are not intended to represent or guarantee that anyone will achieve the same or similar results.
There is absolutely nothing guaranteed about this. Except maybe that you will lose money.
Whatever they say, I KNOW the truth about this program and how it really works.
They provide VERY basic training on getting started with affiliate marketing. Which is a business. Affiliate marketing is legitimate in and of itself. I know this because I’m very familiar with this program, and I know exactly how affiliate marketing works, because it’s what I do myself.
When you look closely at the sales material, they actually reveal this:
Affiliate links are links you can place online that can earn you money. The idea is to sign up to an affiliate program like Amazon to grab your link (this is free to do) and when someone buys through your unique link, you earn a commission. That is the nutshell of how affiliate marketing works.
So, what these people are doing, is grossly misrepresenting how affiliate marketing works for their own gain. They are taking a legitimate business model (affiliate marketing) and watering it down to the point it sounds like a job. For a fact, it is not a job.
I actually make a full-time income with affiliate marketing, so I know what I’m talking about here. I also know it takes a solid amount of effort to get into profit and make the kind of money they talk about.
Don’t Be Fooled By Fake News Endorsements
One of the things that gets many people sucked into this scam, is the misleading claims of being ‘featured in the news’ and the news logos used on their site.
They’ve literally just copy and paste these logos and pretend to be endorsed by news networks. They say things like “this program has recently received a lot of media attention” too, which is an outright lie. At no point have they been featured, nor will they ever be featured, in the news. At least, not in a good way!
They even use various news videos to make their story appear more believable.
The first news video used (shown on the page before the sales page) is exactly the same video used on another scam called Explosive Payday. They do this all the time, using the same videos across many scams.
I first reviewed Explosive Payday over a year ago in May of 2016, and it appears to have changed some of it’s marketing since then. It was once marketed as a ‘work at home Facebook job’ anyone can apply for, which is a total lie. The news video is real, but it has nothing to do with the underlying program, which is a complete and utter scam.
There’s also a second news video used on the sales page itself. Which is an interview between the today show host and Elizabeth Mayhew about making money online.
I did my research on this video, and found that the original video was published way back in 2011!
Funny enough, when you watch the original news video (shown below) and skip to about the 5:46 minute mark, you’ll hear Elizabeth mentioning how you should avoid ‘work at home jobs’ that ask for your money.
Play the video below to see what I mean (I’ve already skipped to the section for you):
I absolutely agree with Elizabeth when it comes to a JOB. You should never need to pay to be hired by someone, online or offline. Which is exactly what Accelerated Income asks you to do. It costs $27 to join, and there are many upsells after you buy.
When it comes to setting up an online business however, there are obviously costs involved. You should expect to have some costs dependent upon the business model. So my problem is with programs like this masquerading as ‘jobs’ when in reality, you are paying for information. Very thin information you can find anywhere online I might add.
This is precisely why it pays to do your homework, as you are now. Because when you look closely, you will begin to see through the lies and deception.
Are The Testimonials Real or Fake?
The testimonials used on these link posting scams are almost always fake and use stock photos. However, in this case, the testimonials are actually real, and given by real people.
BUT… I actually noticed that they are the EXACT testimonials used for a completely different program I reviewed yesterday called Online Millionaire System.
Here are two of the testimonials on the Accelerated Income site:
Now, here’s the same testimonials on an entirely different system:
The above program is essentially a sales page that promotes a company called MOBE.
Ok. But what about the other testimonials? Well, I found this within the fine print…
Results may vary, testimonials are not typical results. All testimonials have been remunerated
So even if the testimonials have not all been ripped off from somewhere else. All of the people giving them have been paid to do so!
If people really are making such great money and Susan is really helping so many people, why use fake testimonials? Clearly, the testimonials hold zero weight whatsoever and cannot be trusted.
Something You NEED To Know…
After seeing how some of the testimonials were ripped off from MOBE members, I also remember seeing talk about a 21 step program on the sales page forAccelerated Income.
As soon as you sign up for Accelerated Income, you’re immediately emailed your Welcome Letter with the link to our 21-Step Training Center.
The reason this is interesting, is because MOBE is a high ticket mlm system that also starts out with a 21 step program. This is how every member begins thier journey with MOBE- with a 21 step training program.
So Accelerated Income uses MOBE testimonials and sells you a 21 step program…
This means they’re likely selling you into MOBE in this case, as oppose to the typical program normally sold on these link posting scam sites.
In short, MOBE has nothing to do with a job. It’s an MLM system that teaches you how to promote the same system you just joined- MOBE. And it costs upwards of $30,000 to ‘qualify’ and actually make the real money. It’s not a scam as such, but it comes a steep price and I don’t recommend it.
Your Privacy Is Not Safe With This System
One thing I always like to inform people about, is how their information is handled by sites like this. When you submit your name and email address, it is shared with other marketers who SPAM you about all kinds of offers.
We may use your information in our e-mail marketing, telemarketing, text messaging, and direct mail marketing programs. We may also transfer you’re personally identifiable information trusted third parties
If you’ve already handed over your information, it’s unfortunately too late to stop that from happening. But it can be good to know for future reference or to warn others about.
Is The Accelerated Income Program a Scam?
As far as the Accelerated Income sales page goes, it’s an outright scam. It uses all kinds of misleading tactics to lure you in such as fake news endorsements, fake scarcity and fake testimonials. All in an effort to sell you into a fake job- link posting.
This is the same old scam that has been running for many years now.
In most cases, the program consists of some generic training about affiliate marketing. However, in this case, you may be buying into an elaborate mlm system known as MOBE unknowingly. I wouldn’t call MOBE a scam as such, but you should have deep pockets if you want to profit and again, it’s not a job.
In any case, these programs always come with a ‘coach’ who tries to sell you into much higher ticket programs. Many people have lost large sums of money this way.
What you decided to do is up to you, but I cannot recommend Accelerated Income to you in good conscience. I recommend being extremely cautious of buying anything from a website full of such misleading nonsense.
It's true... most people fail to make money online. Despite the wealth of opportunity that currently exists, there's a mountain of misinformation and bunk programs out there.
Thankfully, there is a real way for the average person to start a profitable online business. I know because I've done it myself. Here's how I went from $0 to $8k plus per month online.
