If you’re wondering if Steady Home Income is a scam, you’re not alone.
What seems like an easy way to make money from home, is really just a clever trap.
Unfortunately, this program is designed to rob you of your hard earned money, rather than help you become successful online.
The only ones making a ‘steady income’ are the people behind it. Bold claim, I know. And I don’t expect you to take my word for it either.
Read on to see why I am not recommending this program…
Steady Home Income Review
According to the WhoIs database, the website (www.steady-home-income.com/mrk) was registered by John Shaver in April 2015. I also learned that John Shaver runs a similar program called Internet Careers Online.
The BBB gave that program an F rating and listed it under ‘job scams and work at home schemes, while confirming Shaver as the owner. Looking through the customer reviews and complaints, and it wasn’t very reassuring.
Here’s what one customer had to say:
I was promised a success consultation from the company, I have attempted to call & leave messages for help, and No One returns my call…
In all fairness, the above complaint is regarding Internet Careers Online. However, John Shaver owns it, and he also owns Steady Home Income. This is a red flag whichever way you look at it, especially given the similarities between both of these programs.
What Is Steady Home Income?
Since you’re reading this, you obviously want to know what this program is about.
The sales page tries to get people super excited, but never really explains how the program itself works. It essentially goes round and round in circles talking about link posting.
Apparently, you can make $100’s per day by becoming a certified “search engine agent”. They even give you an ‘income calculator’ to work out how much money you’ll make…
Making that kind of money on the internet is absolutely possible, but this program is not going to help you achieve this.
Why? For starters, there is no such thing as a search engine agent. Period.
Second, link posting is NOT a real job or business. I want to be very clear about this. I’ve reviewed 100’s of programs on this blog and I actually make money myself online, so I know for a fact that this is BS.
It’s a deliberate and grossly misleading spin on the business model of affiliate marketing.
In and of itself, affiliate marketing is legitimate. This is what I do myself. The idea is to sign up with a free affiliate program, such as Amazon, who gives you a unique affiliate link. From there, your job is to get people to buy products through your link. When they do, you earn money.
Anyone can do this, and it’s an awesome way to create an income online. But this is absolutely not a job, and like any real business, it takes time and effort to learn how to make money this way.
In any case, you do not earn anything by simply ‘posting’ your affiliate link.
This system essentially shows you how to SPAM people with your links which is neither profitable, nor smart. It is highly unlikely you will make much of any money using this approach, and it won’t be long before your social media accounts are shut down. No one likes a spammer.
Steady Home Income Scam Tactics
I thought it would be helpful to show you some of the sales tactics these people use. Not only will this show you the true nature of this program, but it will help safeguard you from scams in the future.
There are so many red flags with this program it’s hard to know where to begin. So I’ll just run through the stand out points.
Kelly Simmons Is Fake
The first point I wanted to mention was how they use a completely fake alias to promote this fake job.
They use a convincing ‘rags to riches’ story of a struggling single mother who stumbled across a way to make money by posting links. In this instance, they use the alias of Kelly Simmons who says she had a “chilling day that changed her life”…
Except she didn’t, because she’s a stock photo:
Kelly Simmons is a pen name, and it can be found across countless similar websites which all promote the same thing. Like Home Job Placement for example.
There’s nothing wrong with protecting your identity, but there is when you start weighing up all the facts.
The story itself has been used by other fictional characters such as Kelly Scott, Cynthia Sprinter and Emily Hudson among many others. The scammers behind this simply change up the names and profile pictures, while using the same story.
My point being, it’s a sneaky sales pitch and not one word of it is true.
They Are Not Endorsed By The News
Surely if the news are endorsing the program, it must be legit!
Many people fall into the trap of believing this, but it’s a trick. It’s not until you slow down, and take a closer look, that you see the truth. They are absolutely NOT endorsed, and have not been featured, by any reputable news network.
The logos they use have simply been copied and pasted. And, while the news video itself is real, the news anchor is talking generally about work from home jobs. Not this program itself.
Why do they do this? To gain your trust, and get you to buy. Plain and simple.
But don’t take my word for it, read the fine print in their disclaimer:
As you can see, it’s all a trick to get people to buy what they are promoting.
Quick, buy now, while there are still 9 spots available!
This is a flat out lie folks.
They claim there’s only a ‘few spots left’ when in reality, you could come back to their site and it will say the same thing next week. And the week after, and the month after that.
You get the point. It’s fake.
They do this to get you to buy on impulse. Nobody wants to miss out on a ‘golden opportunity’ right?
They want you to purchase without researching and learning all the facts. Because they know that once you do your homework, there’s very little chance you’ll buy.
It is possible to use scarcity ethically in marketing. But in this case, it’s nothing more than an outright lie.
The Testimonials Are Not Real
I’ve exposed the fake testimonials these people use on many occasions, and this is no different.
Take this guy for example:
Now here’s proof they’re using a stock photo:
Once again, they use stock photos and canned text across many other websites.
Oh yeah… and the video they use on this site is the same video used to promote a high ticket multi level marketing program called MOBE. This is why nowhere in the video do they mention the Steady Home Income. I know this because I’ve seen this video kicking around online for a while now.
In any case, no one is actually making money with this program, which is why they need to resort to using fake testimonials.
Do You Like SPAM? Me Either…
By giving these people your email, you will almost certainly be spammed. Day in, day out.
You see, their sole purpose to convince you to buy $10,000’s in additional products and ‘coaching’ once inside. To make this happen they call, email and text you daily.
What’s worse, they actually share your information with other marketers who will do the same:
I don’t know about you, but I hate SPAM. Legitimate companies do not operate in this way.
Protecting Your Personal Information
One of the most alarming risks, and one worth paying special attention to, is the payment page.
Long story short, the payment page is less than secure:
If you look closely, you’ll notice the date on the GeoTrust seal reads 2010!
This website is not approved by GeoTrust at all. If you do decide to buy, it might be worth using a pre-paid debit card, instead of your actual credit card.
I simply cannot recommend this program in good conscience.
The sales tactics are very misleading, and the underlying program is a fake link posting job. Not to mention, you are putting your personal information into some questionable hands.
You can make money working from home, but scams like Steady Home Income are looking to take advantage of you rather than help you. Avoid this one.
