I’m not going to bore you to tears with my usual essay-styled listicle and long intro. Ain’t nobody got time for that. But aspiring freelancers want to know, “Is WriteApp Reviews a Scam?” and I think I have an answer.
Is WriteApp Reviews a scam?
Yes. Yes, it is. WriteApp Reviews is a scam, and here’s why …
Evasive bait-and-switch marketing
Visitors stumble onto their site as they scour the web for fresh income streams. They are freelancers, techies, youngsters, and everyday people who need cash ASAP.
“Make money testing apps on your phone or tablet … start making money … writing reviews …”
“How cool would it be to play with apps and get paid to write about it?”
The site then promises these hungry candidates they can “start making money” after entering their names into a box and clicking the “Get Instant Access Now” button.
Wow! That’s exciting! Click!
Anyone who clicks the button gets immediate access … to some bullshit.
You see, the instant access button gives them instant access to another instant access button they can instantly access for
$47 $29 $17 — if they act instantly before their instant access timer runs out.
Now, most people bounce the minute they see a fee, but a curious and optimistic woman named Mrs. Dumont took a chance.
“Thank you for your purchase. You have now entered ‘Muckery’ Central. Enjoy your stay.”
She was instantly bombarded with about 100 additional product offerings and sent on a wild goose chase, only to find out her access wasn’t instant.
There were no immediate app review writing jobs and no opportunities for semi-fast pay. Hell, it wasn’t even an “app review writing job” in the traditional sense. It was an affiliate marketing setup being presented as a freelance writing job.
It took Mrs. Dumont a few minutes to figure it out, and she was pissed when she did.
The new member received instructions to take a training course and then wait for an ambiguous entity to provide a list of “potential jobs.”
Then they explained that she would have to register with each site on the list, create profiles, wait for new “review writing jobs” to become available, and apply for them. But the training course was inaccessible at the time, and she couldn’t get her “list.”
“You can’t even find your way to the training course. You keep getting redirected to some Swagabug thing.” — B. Dumont
Dumont received instant “access” to an unhelpful list of sites like Swagbucks, Inbox Dollars, Survey Junkies, and other pages that have nothing to do with writing. Meanwhile, WriteApp Reviews continued to solicit an array of alternative products that also lead to nowhere.
So, it was sort of like an endless loop.
But don’t worry! WriteApp Reviews said they’d get her applications to the top of the employers’ lists PRONTO — if she paid $100 more to join the VIP club.
See what they did there?
What applications? She hadn’t even gotten into the training course.
Everything came to light once they made a website.
Dumont realized it was an affiliate marketing setup after they created a whole website for her upcoming app reviews and issued her a “pen name” to “protect her privacy.”
Suddenly everything clicked, and she knew it wasn’t what she wanted. “There’s nothing wrong with recruiting people to do affiliate marketing, but it’s slimy not to be upfront about it.”
“The whole thing is misleading, and it doesn’t explain itself until someone loses money.” – B. Dumont
Mrs. Dumont thought WriteApp Reviews was a company with its own app review writing jobs, or a marketplace with readily available gigs. It was neither of those things, and it seemed like another predatory company capitalizing on other people’s desperation.
Has anyone ever made money using WriteApp Reviews?
I don’t know. Maybe some people found their way through the ad-bombing chaos and made some beans, but Mrs. Dumont is not a fan of chaos.
Affiliate marketing can work well for someone with large social media followings, fanbases, or high website traffic on an existing site.
Otherwise, the person has to build their following from scratch. AM isn’t the right “job” for someone still trying to build something else.
Dumont asked for a refund under their guarantee.
The company was so concerned about her dissatisfaction that they offered her a huge discount on their other lifechanging products instead of a refund.
It wasn’t a total loss for Mrs. Dumont, though. She got instant access to another review writing opportunity the same day.
Scam-o-meter reading: Hellfire
WriteApp Reviews gets a hellfire ranking for deceptive marketing, money sucking, carrot dangling, confusion, and time wastery. It is a legit money-making site, but not for you, me, or Mrs. Dumont. Just them.
