There are a few key factors that you need to look out for to be able to determine if a home-based business is right for you. With a lot of hype going around on the online world It’s difficult to weed out exactly which companies are legitimate and which company are a scam. I would like to show you a couple key elements that you should be looking for.Let’s face it, not everyone is an entrepreneur, business developer, or CEO to be able to quickly evaluate the business opportunity.
A list of things to ask yourself are as follows:
- Is the company an accredited business.
- Is the company easy to contact or get in touch with.
- Does the company have a legitimate product that is easy for you to market
- does the company have a mentor program
- does the company have a good customer service
- what is the compensation plan
- what is your commitment.
Is the company an accredited business
the easiest way to see if the company is an accredited business is to check the BBBonline.com. You want to make sure a company is accredited. Because when push comes to shove, if you have any complaints you want to make sure that they are addressed justly and correctly. It’s also nice to check the BBB to see if anybody else actually filed complaints against the company.
Is the company easy to contact or get in touch with.
I don’t know about you, but I like to speak to a real life person. When I have problems, I like them addressed right away. And if they can’t be addressed right away. I would like at least a verbal confirmation from the person in charge that it is in process. I don’t agree for a company not to list their address, or just to list the e-mail as a means of contact.
Does the company have a legitimate product that is easy for you to market
It’s important for you to affiliate yourself with a good product. Preferably one that you’re familiar with. It’s easier when you’ve actually used the product to be able to tell other people its benefits, and why they should use it. You should pick a product that the majority of people use or need to use, but at least a product that people like. You don’t want to find yourself forcing somebody to purchase something that they neither like or use.
Does the company have a mentor program.
It’s not easy when you’re first starting out with a home-based business. You want to make sure that there is up line support, as well as a good mentor or training program in place for you to get started. Ask to make sure your sponsor is available for you to ask questions to. There’s nothing worse than having your money taken and being left high and dry.
Does the company have good customer service.
There’s nothing more important than top rate customer service provided by the company. You would make sure that the techs know what they’re talking about and respond in a timely manner to the consumers. You don’t want to have angry customers coming back at you, because they’re frustrated with a company or product that you referred them to.
What is the compensation plan.
Make sure there is a clear thought out, compensation plan that will award you justly for the efforts that you put in to the home-based business. Make sure what you get out is more then what you put in, in terms of money and effort
What is your commitment
Lastly, probably the most important question you’ll want to know, how much does it cost. It always takes a little bit of money to make money in the business world. So you want to make sure that you’re getting your money’s worth in terms of printed material, websites or marketing material from the company.
With these set of guidelines and you’ll be well on your way of developing a lucrative income with a respected company in qualified niche
