In this economy, everyone is turning to the internet for information, advice and possible business opportunities. The reason people turn to the internet is fact that there is no recession on the internet. The internet is endless, with no ceiling to cap a persons abilities or dreams. The insane amount of money that is up for grabs via the web is luring for everyone. The two major forms of internet business people join are MLM(Amway, Mary Kay) and direct sales. But where does a person begin? How are scams avoided? Who can be trusted? What products or services should be selected? There are many questions to have answered when choosing a good home based business to start online, but there are three questions that are key.
1 – Company Management.
What kind of people are controlling the ship? Look up their track record. Spend some time and research the people running the opportunity before you join. Check out the reputation they have made for themselves in the industry. No one is perfect, but make sure the positive feedback heavily outweighs the negative. Always use your gut. After some good research, it becomes easy to tell if somebody is running a solid business, or they are just trying to get your money.
2 – Support.
Unless you have a lot of experience, or you are a marketing guru, you are going to need a ton of training. Check the business for tools like a 1(800) number you can call anytime, a personal sponsor or mentor, weekly live conference training calls, and a user forum where you can learn from your peers experiences. These tools are a necessity, and should not be overlooked. The proper education is needed, or you will be chewed up and spit out immediately.
3 – Unique Products.
Don’t get into something that is already saturated. There are way to many companies promoting the same thing. Two very over saturated markets right not are Vitamins and Juices… do not touch these, its to late in the game and you will get nowhere. Do research, find out whats up and coming, and get into it early. Check and see if people have recently been able to join and have had the success you are looking for. The more unique the product, the less the competition will be, the more successful you can become
Spend the time and find the opportunity that proves to be excellent in these areas. Anything else is going to be a waste of your time and money. Always keep in mind that there are no short cuts in business, both online and offline. The online world is packed with opportunities promising you riches quickly, and it is because of these false promises that 97% of online business fail. Don’t chase that rabbit down the rabbit hole, find a legitimate business and stick with it. These three keys will lead to an excellent opportunity, which will give you a solid, and successful home based business.
