Is LiveCounseling.com a Scam?

Links & ads you may click on this blog pay the bills & keep this site free for you. Thanks for supporting!

So recently I was on Twitter getting my tweet on, (If this makes no sense to you, click here to watch the following video & it will dumb down this whole twitter business.) when i received an email that I had a new "follower". I make it a habit of checking out who follows me on twitter because if you're interesting or we share the same interests then chances are I'll "follow" you back. In any event, the person that "followed" me is associated with a new site that can make you money at home. So i decided to give it a look & share it with my peeps (That's you.). Contrary to popular belief, twitter is more than reading about someone yammering on about what they ate for breakfast or the deuce they squeezed off. Sorry, but some people have no concept of "sharing too much information" over there. But I digress, let's talk about this new work at home opportunity by LiveCounseling.com

What the Heck is Live Counseling?

LiveCounseling is a unique service that matches people who have questions with those who are qualified to answer them. What does this mean for you? You get paid to answer people's questions on subject matter that you know well. It's very much like Ether.com where they're connecting experts like you with customers that are willing to pay you for your knowledge or advice. However LiveCounseling.com differs from Ether.com in that you can get paid to chat with people via text messaging, online chat or web cam (Not the dirty kind either). This is perfect if you're anything like me and hate being on the telephone, which is why Ether.com wouldn't be a good match for me.

How To Apply?

If you have expertise in any of the subject matter above, then all you have to do is visit LiveCounseling.com and apply to be an expert by clicking here. Don't worry, there are no out of pocket fees!

How Much Can You Make?

Well, you set the rate of how much you'll charge per minute. You can get a good idea of what to charge by looking at what other experts in your field are charging on the site. LiveCounseling.com handles collecting the fees, payments, advertising your expertise & maintaining the website. For the trouble, they take 35% of your earnings which is later paid out to you. Ouch! It sounds like a lot, but when you consider all they're doing to facilitating an environment for you to make money at home, it sort of justifies the percentage. Or maybe not in your mind.

Questions?

I couldn't locate an FAQ section but they do provide you with a telephone number and email address that can be found by clicking here. So if you have any other questions about this opportunity, please use their contact information.

So Is It legitimate?

As far as I can tell, everything seems to be all good. It's a brand new company so only time will tell. The fact that they're still in beta (at the time of this article) means that they'll probably make adjustments over time to improve the site for experts like yourself and your customers. I haven't personally tried it, so I can't give you any first hand experience. But I would love to hear from experts that have been using it or anyone that may have found some dirt on this company. So feel free to post a comment below.

In either case, good luck! Hope to see some of you on Twitter. It's been a great source of entertainment, information and venting for me. Soon I'm going to cover some tips on how you can use twitter to find a work at home job. So stay tuned loyal subscribers! Thanks for the continued support and love here! Shout out to the haters too! 😉

Update:

It appears this company is no more. Apparently they closed shop and some folks were left owed money. Tsk, tsk. Another one bites the dust.
