Product Type: Internet Marketing Training
Scam or Not: Scam
Overall Rating: 3/10
WAH EDU seems to be short for Work at Home Education, although the site never actually specifies this. That title offers some insight into what the site offers. Specifically, it is supposed to provide training for internet marketing, largely through the use of video lessons.
Good training really is a key aspect of internet marketing. If you can learn what you’re doing, then you have a much greater potential to make money. Sites like WAH EDU take advantage of this concept by providing low-quality training that’s also fairly expensive.
More than anything else, I want to highlight the fact that WAH EDU is a copy-and-paste site.
This practice is becoming increasingly common by scammers. Essentially, this means that there are multiple websites out there that are almost identical in terms of content. The main differences tend to be the name of the program and sometimes the cost.
The approach is a clever one, because some of the sites will get recognized as scams faster than others. Additionally, having multiple sites protects the owners in case one is taken down.
In this particular case, I’ve actually review one of the duplicate sites for WAH EDU, which is called WAH Institute . You can check out that review if you want to know why I’m so concerned about the site and why I call it a scam. Because the sites are close to identical, all of the conclusions from that one apply to WAH EDU too.
In fact, there is even another variation out there called Work at Home Institute (rather than WAH Institute or WAH EDU). Again, the site uses the same general tricks and claims.
The practice of duplicate sites is a deeply concerning one – especially as the sites do not acknowledge it at all. There simply isn’t a legitimate reason to take this approach and it is a strong indication that the site isn’t being honest about anything else either.
Because the marketing is so vague, it isn’t even clear whether the sites are all promoting the same products – and there’s even evidence that the products have changed over time. Some older reviews suggest that at least one of these duplicate sites was a link posting scam, and Work at Home Institute may still be, as the marketing on that one is slightly different than the other two.
However, the copy-and-paste nature of the sites offers a strong indication that there is something fishy going on.
Benefits and Advantages
The only advantage that I see with this site is that they’re teaching internet marketing. In theory, this means that you might pick up some information or skills that are relevant in the field. In practice, I doubt it and there are much better options for training.
It is nice that the site is promoting a legitimate approach but poor training for a legitimate approach isn’t really any better than training for an approach that doesn’t work.
Issues with WAH EDU
Because I’ve reviewed WAH Institute, I’m not going to go into the issues in depth here. However, the site is manipulative from start to finish.
The site just offers one short page that provides general information about training, with no real indication of what you’re actually going to get or how good it will be. To me, it sounds like the site is covering genuine topics but is skimming over them, so you probably wouldn’t end up with enough information to actually make money.
To find out anything more about the training, you have to pay the $97 – which only gives you 3 months access anyway.
Now, that price might be okay if the training were decent but you have no way of knowing before you pay the money. My own experience has taught me that if sites manipulate you this much, there is no way that their actual product is as good as their hype.
If it were, then they wouldn’t be relying on manipulation to get you to buy.
My Personal WAH EDU Review
The duplicate site practice is one of the most concerning things about WAH EDU but even if this were not the case, I still wouldn’t trust the site. There is no indication that their training is any good and the amount of manipulation is excessive.
Good training for internet marketing does exist but you need to look for sites that are honest about what they offer and don’t try to mislead you. One especially powerful example of this is Wealthy Affiliate, which is the training site that I recommend.
One of the key differences is that Wealthy Affiliate tells you what you can expect right from the very beginning. For that matter, the site even has a free membership, so you can see exactly what you would be paying for – before you even need to provide any credit card details.
Those aspects alone make Wealthy Affiliate a great place to learn and I haven’t even told you about all of the other good things, like it’s community or the training itself. So, if you’re interested in internet marketing, take the time and check it out.
