Have you been looking for paid writing jobs or are you social media savvy and thought about making a decent income with your skills? Well paidsocialmediajobs.com is a site that promises to offer just that. You’ll find numerous reviews on Paid Social Media Jobs, however many of them are written by affiliates and it’s very rare you’ll come across objective views from anyone who’s actually used this product. I purchased Paid Social Media Jobs membership quite a while back to see what the site was all about so I have a very good understanding as to what you will find and what they offer as one of paid social media jobs members.

What is Paid Social Media Jobs?

Paid Social Media Jobs is a training site; the two components they offer once you become a member are Social Media Job Training and Social Media Affiliate Training.

Section 1: Social Media Job Training

The jobs section offers training on how to become a social media manager, now you’d think that this would be a series of videos and documents like in many effective training courses. But unfortunately this is actually an absolute nightmare! There’s about 3 modules with around 20 different sections – ALL DOCUMENTS, yes documents that you’re supposed to read through. There’s very rarely any videos to help support all of this ridiculously overwhelming amount of information you’re trying to learn and if you’re able to go through all of this without wanting to throw yourself off the nearest a building half way through then I definitely commend you! To add insult to injury the training is unbelievably unorganised, there’s no sequence to the sections within the modules and you’ll find that subjects are erratic instead of step by step. I’ll just say after a couple of days I did give as I got so bored and confused.

If you manage to succeed in going through all the training you are supposed to then be competent enough to apply for jobs through their Social Media Jobs Database. All this is is a social media search engine that aggregates jobs from freelancer sites like Upwork, Freelancer  and Guru.com, correct me if you think I’m crazy, but I’m sure you could just go to these websites yourself directly without paying for Paid Social Media Jobs membership??

Social Media Affiliate Training

Here the site claims ‘You will be making money by helping promote businesses on social media sites.’ The method is through eBooks that supposed be your sales funnel to selling products from Clickbank and other affiliate sites. The only positive from this offering is that the eBooks are free and the training is done in four videos.

Can you make money from Paid Social Media Jobs?

I certainly didn’t, I have made money from freelance websites directly but none of which came from paidsocialmediajobs.com. I’m sure you could possibly find some use from the eBooks as there’s several different categories like Business and Investing, Health and Fitness, Home and Garden and Self Help – you can insert your own affiliate links into them and use them to help you capture leads, however I don’t think it is worth the investment. If you want to make an online income then getting proper training and avoiding sites like this would be my advice.

    Hmm it seems a little dodgy and sketchy from the word go really. How exactly are you supposed to make money with this system again? What are the so called paid social media jobs? I think you’ve hit the nail on the head with this one – not something a newbies should be investing time in…good review

    Lol, I just checked out their site and it’s funny. But unfortunately, many people fall in the trap just because they wanna make money online.
    Even if someone is just a beginner in online money making, he or she should at least search whether the company is legit or not or if someone has already reviewed it.
    I’m sure that the study materials you got inside must be something that you can find online with a little bit of smart searching, isn’t it??

      Absolutely, a lot of the material can definitely be found online for free. I do hope more people will check out reviews like this before they purchase.

      Thanks for your comments

    Thanks for your review on this site, its one I’ll be sure to avoid as I have found numerous better ways to make money online, it seems to me that this site just preys upon those who want to quit their day job, but fails to deliver!

    I personally would be way to annoyed to go through some unorganized training, how are you even supposed to know if your making progress?

      Very true. It my worst nightmare, in my opinion it has to be linear or there’s no progress, I’m sure you’ll agree 🙂

    Great review, thanks for pointing out all the negatives when joining Paid Social Media. These days there are so many things to look out for when you are looking for ways to earn money online. The one scam after the other and affiliate programs that don’t deliver on what they promise. I have personally joined many programs without ever earning a cent.

    Wow, Paid Social Media Jobs sounds horrible, a bunch of documents that are all unorganized that definitely sounds like they want to get away with saying that they gave you the info but really it’s just there most likely to innundate the users to confuse them and make them think it’s their fault and not the programs. Also how the social media database is just pulling from Upwork, Freelancer and Guru i’m not usre what this program really does. I would say this is a scam and I will definitly be staying away from this LOL. Thanks

      You sound a lot like me lol, the unorganised modules is definitely a red flag and you’re most likely to find most of the info they have for free online.
