This is an envelope-stuffing scam. The only person working from home related to this work-from-home opportunity is the person running it--Dean Spasser, aka "Dean Murray"(his business alias). His number is 314-706-3326 or 314-275-2082 if you have questions related to refunds.

Looking at American Publications/Advantage Publications (both searches lead to the same website).  Do you want to give money to someone who will only answer the phone if you have sent money to him?  Sounds like the less you know about American, ie Advantage Publications, the more likely they think that you are to order.  There is a pop up on their website sticking it to their competitorin the envelope stuffing scam "business opportunities" field.  There must only be so many suckers to go around.  They are fighting over them.  In the pop-up message, Dean Murray, or Spasser, says not to trust a company that hides behind a PO box.  Well the BBB on their website(that gives Dean Murray's real name--Dean Spasser)--says that American/Advantage publications is run out of a UPS box in Maryland Heights.  Maybe UPS is nicer than a PO Box?  Is there a difference?  Maybe it's better to trust the advice from his own site--don't blindly trust this envelope stuffing scam. Read the information about envelope stuffing/work-from-home scams on the Better Business Bureau website.  Read the consumer information about American Publications on the BBB website.  Then see if you want to help this man "work-from-home" by sending him your money.  He sends you some information you could get for free elsewhere and then offers you an opportunity to try to rope other people in too.    He has a website and advertisements in national magazines, National Enquirer and multiple others.  They list some on the BBB website.  Study common scams before you send any money for any of these "business opportunities".

How to make money online

   The first step is to stop Googling things like, "how to make money online." Not because you shouldn't want to make money online, but because the stuff you're going to find by doing that is going to help you lose money online. Sort of like asking a casino owner how to make money in Vegas...

   Don't pay anyone for simple and proven instructions on how to achieve this goal. In particular, don't pay anyone to teach you how to write or sell manuals or ebooks about how to make money online.

   Get rich slow.

   Focus on the scarce resource online: attention. If you try to invent a way to take cheap attention and turn it into cash, you will fail. The attention you want isn't cheap, it's difficult to get via SEO and it rarely scales. Instead, figure out how to earn expensive attention.

   In addition to attention, focus on trust. Trust is even more scarce than attention.

   Don't worry so much about the 'online' part. Instead, figure out how to create value. The online part will take care of itself.

   Don't quit your day job. Start evenings and weekends and figure it out with small failures.

   Build a public reputation. A good one, and be sure that you deserve it, and that it will hold up to scrutiny.

   Obsessively specialize. No niche is too small if it's yours.

   Connect the disconnected.


   Build an online legacy that increases in value daily.

   Make money offline. If you can figure out how to create value face to face, it's a lot easier to figure out how to do the same digitally. The web isn't magic, it's merely efficient.

   Become the best in the world at something that people value. Easier said than done, worth more than you might think.

   Hang out with people who aren't looking for shortcuts. Learn from them.

   Fail. Fail often and fail cheaply. This is the very best gift the web has given to people who want to bootstrap their way into a new business.

   Make money in the small and then relentlessly scale.

   Don't chase yesterday's online fad.

   Think big, act with intention and don't get bogged down in personalities. If it's not on your agenda, why are you wasting time on it?

   Learn. Ceaselessly. Learn to code, to write persuasively, to understand new technologies, to bring out the best in your team, to find underused resources and to spot patterns.

   This is not a zero sum game. The more you add to your community, the bigger your piece gets.

also another option is to get something like this: Finally revealing my $2,556 a day system - Google Sniper 3.0

I try it, it worked for me, but not as much as they describe it.
