I want to know if the websites for teaching how to make more money on blogging, etc are real. There are a lot of catch ups and even videos and testimonies of people who tried it and succeed. But is it really true?
If its a scam it will be owned by EA
I see a lot of those lately, and they tend to ask you for money up front for some reason or another. Anything that asks for my money up front tends to put up red warning flags in my mind. Another thing that puts up red flags is the promise to "earn thousands of dollars a week doing nothing" - It sounds good, but a little research tends to reveal a little more about these sites than they want you to know.
The best way to find out more information about a website is to research it. Google it, look up real reviews (not just the ones they post), etc.
I put together two blog posts to help people looking for free stuff (or a little extra money), both of which include sites that actually work, and I have personally tested:
Geek Dad's Guide to Free Stuff: http://ngwoosh.com/free-stuff/
Payment Proof: http://ngwoosh.com/payment-proof/
And none of the sites listed in my posts ask for your money up front, or make empty promises of riches beyond your wildest dreams. =P
The websites that you are talking about are what is known in the online marketing world as a landing page. A landing page is designed to sell you something, this is why there are lots of testimonials (to gain credibility and trust), videos (for the seller to directly connect with you and convince you 'face-to-face') and lots of other tricks designed to make it seem as if you must buy urgently.
There is no way to tell just by looking at a page if it is offering something of genuine value or if it is a scam. Having said that, the vast majority of landing pages on the web will take your money and provide very little value in return (i.e. a scam).
As far as money from blogging, this is a very saturated niche there are literally thousands of products promising to make you lots of money quickly. DO NOT believe them, most of the information they sell is available for free from marketing/blogging blogs and forums. All they do is compile this information into a set of videos or an e-book and then try to get you to pay for it. The information may be valid, but will not teach you any 'secrets'. Making good money online is hard work, just like in the real world.
