All of us have fallen for a few get rich quick programs. It seems at times that that is all anyone promotes.
Anyway, you can save yourself some frustration by following a few simple guidelines.
1. Who is running the show? In other
words, who owns the company? What’s his experience? Has he had any success
online or with networking? Does he have any negative items in his background? What
does Google say about him and about the company you’re looking at. Ask on Facebook
if anyone knows anything about the company.
2. How long has this company been in
business? If it’s a startup statistically it has a high risk of folding within
a couple of years. Whereas, an established business, over 5 years in operation,
is a safer bet.
3. Do they manufacture their own
products? A company that does not do its own manufacturing is at the mercy of
their suppliers. They have little control over the quality of the products and
even it the products will always be available. Nothing bothers a customer more than
telling them something isn’t available. Also, prices can easily go up when you
don’t control the manufacturing of whatever it is that you are selling.
4. The pay plan. Is it weekly? Do they
do direct deposit. Do you have to maintain a certain about of volume before you
can get your money? In a related note…can you purchase products from them using
your debit/credit cards? If not…beware. If they can’t qualify for merchant accounts,
they have serious issues. I would avoid them. And see if the pay plan allows
for breakaway. If it does, the company can take your downline which some do if you’re
successful and have a big downline. Why should they pay you all that commission
every week or every month when they can just take your team and keep the money
5. Finally, do they have any type of
product guarantee or refund policy. Also, do they require autoship and how
much. This is an expense you must cover if you sign up with them. And are there
any fees to join and any fees to maintain a website or back office? Again, something
you’ll need to cover.
Okay…that’s just a few items you might want to look for when considering an opportunity. I might mention that there are still some people touting the ‘next big thing’ only they don’t really tell you what they are selling. Again beware. No real product means it’s probably a scam and will soon be shut down.
