Trying to find the perfect work at home or MLM business opportunity can be a major source of frustration. Let's face it, there are many different opportunities to choose from and knowing which one to invest your time and money in can be a difficult task. In this brief article, I'm going to give you an overview of a few of the things that I look for in a home based business opportunity. Hopefully by the time you've finished reading this, you'll be able to spot the opportunities worth pursuing as well as the ones worth dumping.
In my opinion, the perfect work at home / MLM business opportunity should be easy to start. A home business that takes a long time to get up and running won't be easily duplicated by your downline, and you're not likely to see the viral growth in your business that most network marketers are seeking.
Another important trait to look for is a compensation plan that rewards you for supporting your downline. Many MLM compensation plans fail to reward the upline sponsor for investing time and energy into their downline, and as a result they end up with a wide business but no depth. Finding a network marketing compensation plan that rewards downline support also means that you'll have the help you need, when you need it.
Lastly, is there a marketing and promotion system in place? Are you left on your own to explain the opportunity to others, or is there a system that you can plug into to get up and running? With all of the technology that we now have available, you should be using automated systems to do much of the grunt work in your business.
Hopefully this short article has given you some points to consider as you're searching for the perfect work at home or MLM business. Remember to keep in mind that even the “perfect business” will require effort and dedication on your part to succeed.
