7 Tips For Choosing The Right Home Business Opportunity

By: ronhelor
There are many online income opportunities out there, and one might wonder which opportunity is right for him or her. In this article I'd like to address some of the issues regarding business opportunities, and what to look for when you consider joining them.
Here are the things you should look into:

1. Does the business opportunity use leverage? - some programs use a compensation plan called 2-up. With that system, you get cash on every direct sale the system makes for you and you get indirect sales from your recruits thanks to the 2-up compensation plan. The 2-up plan makes sure you continue to get paid for your efforts indirectly, long after you've made that first sale... So make sure your opportunity uses leverage of any kind, and not just commissions on direct sales. This is very important for your long term earnings.

2. Does the system do all the selling for you? Just think about it - if you are promoting your own product, you need to know how to develop a product AND how to SELL it AND how to drive traffic to your site. But - with a good business opportunity you only need to drive traffic to your site. The system does the rest. So you only need to do one out of three....that's a lot easier, isn't it?

3. Are the founders of business opportunity totally devoted to your success? For example, a certain business opportunity founder does 2 live teleseminars each day! These are not recorded seminars - they are really doing a live seminar, twice a day. Why? simply because it is proven that live seminars make more sales, and attract better team mates. The founders want the best for their people...so they are putting in all this effort. Doing 2 live teleseminars a day, every day, demands time and effort... so this really symbolizes the founder's commitment. Make sure your opportunity leaders are committed.

4. What kind of back office does the business opportunity have? Make sure the back office contains marketing education center, website stats, automatic follow-up on your prospects, technical and marketing support...don't settle for less than the best. Your back office is your support.

5. A Good price point. For example, a $597 price is affordable for many people. There are programs out there that cost more than $3000 to join. It's a lot harder to find people that will have spendable $3000 to join your program. With a $597 price, it's a LOT easier to sign people up.

6. A great product - Make sure your business opportunity has an actual product they sell to people who join. It's illegal to promote a business opportunity just for the sake of opportunity. They must actually give a worthwhile product for your money.

7. Is it a duplicatable system? preferably one that doesn't require you to talk to prospects and "sell them". This is very important, because it's very hard to recruit people to a business that requires them to do things they hate doing. For example, try recruiting people to a home based business that requires them to do cold phone calls. People hate doing that. So how in the world are you going to recruit them to this business?

It's really important that you get all the details about the business opportunity you consider joining. Also, you may want to interview a few sponsors and choose the one you like best, and that you believe will help you succeed. It's also a good idea to register to a free teleseminar or presentation these business opportunities have, and learn all you can about it.
