Home Business, Legitimate or Scam?

Jun 3, 2008
This article is intended to guide you in the right direction, help you avoid the majority of the pit falls, and avoid the home based business opportunity scams.

What should you look for in a home business? To help answer this question have developed a rating system. After reviewing and participating in a number of home business programs I have developed the following criteria. I would seriously recommend you use this criteria when considering any business opportunity.

The first thing to look for is, does the product offered appeal to the masses? If this service or product is making money, that is fine as long as the secondary product or service has value. This can be in the form of educational or consumable products. This will increase your ability to build your business quickly thus maintaining your enthusiasm and energy level.

The second thing to consider is, what is the price point of the initial start up cost. Again you need to be able to appeal to a large audience.

The third thing to consider is, what is your compensation plan? Is this a one shot sale or will your business provide you with a monthly residual income. Residual income is the only secure way to build your income with the least amount of time invested.

The fourth thing to consider is, does their business program provide ongoing training and support. A large number of the home based business scams take your money and then leave you to figure it out. Your chance of succeeding with a program like this is slim to none.

The fifth thing to consider is, does your company have a good marketing plan in place? If you are new to the home business industry and net work marketing it could cost you a fortune to learn how to market your business. The key to running a successful online business is driving quality traffic to your website.

The sixth thing is a bonus. Does your business provide you with the opportunity to receive multiple income sources from a single website? This is a very important advantage. You can maximize your income and minimize your marketing costs. Efficiency is the key to making large incomes while freeing up your time to do the things you love.

Align yourself with successful people. Choose your business opportunity carefully. By following these guidelines there is no reason you can't be one of the next internet success stories.
