Free Home-based Opportunity, Yeah Right!

Mar 14, 2008
When you're looking for business opportunities online, chances are you've happened upon websites offering you free home-based opportunities. These websites are a huge plentiful, and if you don't have any idea as to the direction you may want to take, it may even seem overwhelming.

However, while a whole lot of them may look like hoaxes at face value, some of these free home-based opportunities are worth a second look. There are some guidelines you can run over before you completely cross out a business opportunity. These guidelines are designed to help you find a profitable home-based venture, but also help you avoid some of the internet scams out to just get your information or flood your computer with useless advertising.

Free home-based opportunities facilitated by the Internet are usually those dealing with telecommuting. Telecommuting, if you've never come across the term, is basically working under a boss who distributes assignments to you. Through these assignments you get per-gig payments, or hourly rates, depending on your employment stipulation. The difference from your regular 9-to-5 work is that you actually are going to do all your work from home.

A good way to know that your home-based option is a viable one is if it sells an interesting, sell-able product. Trust your gut-feelings a consumer, you more likely or not have an idea as to what sort of products or services you will actually be willing to purchase or avail. If you're not going to think it clever or worth the purchase, the next person won't probably buy or avail from your online business.

Make sure that the website offering home-based opportunities is in good standing with the Better Business Bureau. What is the Better Business Bureau or BBB? Aimed to promote a level of trust in the Internet, it issues a Reliability seal and a Privacy seal to a website that has affiliated itself to the BBB. This Reliability seal implies that the company advocating this website has met the standards set by a local BBB venue, which means it stands true in its advertising and marketing claims. The Privacy seal, on the other hand, gives you an assurance that your private information is being handled with sufficient care so as not to leak your information to third parties, or themselves misuse your information.

Another way to give you an idea of safety and viability is how long the business has been up for. Generally, start-up ventures that promise you huge gains or top positions once they hit it big may never likely hit it big. It's much better to trust more established ventures than start-up ones especially if you're new to the industry, precisely because of the fact that it more or less gives you the security you need as you start out. More established ventures, usually those operating for at least five years, will give you a greater assurance of successors, even just getting paid for the basic work you do than a new company, so do take note of this.

Another good signal that the home-based opportunity website is the one you should affiliate yourself with is the training and supplementary support they provide their members. A good company will always have an interest in promoting the welfare of its clients, and will be willing to provide the necessary training in order to better your business. After all, the success of the businesses of their clients will always return to a greater reputation and reliability rating of their company.

Free home-based opportunities, because they are free, may not promise as much gain as those that require sign-up fees and the like. Therefore, be wary of free home-based opportunities that promise you huge gains for little or no work. Why is this? This is because paid home-based opportunities, or even business ventures online that require minimal to a huge amount of capital, yield reasonable incomes after some work has been done. Therefore, it's not logical and even highly improbable for those sorts of claims to be real.

Lastly, check how many often the business actually pays its clients and business affiliates. The business should more preferably pay you in monthly increments, if not more often. This can give you a better assurance that you're actually getting paid for the job you do, instead of doing tons of work and waiting for an income that won't come.
