Are you looking for some real internet business opportunities? If so, then you are probably sick and tired of the journey that most people take in life which is to trade their time for money until they are way too old to really enjoy life. The single biggest reason why anyone would want to start an internet business or any type of business for that matter is to have financial freedom as well as not having to work for anyone. If you have been looking for an internet home business opportunity then my bet is that you have actually tried some of these so called “opportunities” and ended up either losing money, wasting time, or both. If this is the case, then you’re not alone. I’ve been there myself and so has a ton of other people. So why does this happen, what can you do to avoid it, and how do you find real opportunities that will help make you an online income? Let’s find out.
Everyone Wants A Piece of Your Bank Account
The main reason why people pitch and sell internet based business opportunities is to make money off of people who are looking for them. The hard part is figuring out which ones are legit and which ones are scams. Almost every company is going to tell you that they are the best and that they are out for your best interest in mind. Almost all of the sales pages you will see will have pictures of happy people, positive testimonials, and even pictures of checks. That’s all good and grand but how do you know if those testimonials and checks are even real?
In a world where anyone with a computer and basic photoshopping skills, creating a fake check is as easy as making a bowl of cereal. I’m not saying that all opportunities with long sales pages are fakes but many are and you need to be aware of them. Another thing that you will come across often is “expiring” home internet business opportunities where they make it seem like if you don’t start right away, with the next 20 minutes, your chance of owning a successful internet business will be gone forever. This can also come in the X amount of slots left form. For the most part, it’s all just a sales tactic to get you to act right away because they know that the longer you think about it the less likely you are going to buy.
In other words, most people/companies that sell these things are only out for your money regardless of how many times they use the words, “I want you to be successful.” Sure, it would be great to have real, success stories but most people out there sell crap businesses with the intent to make some quick cash from oblivious people.
In order to avoid falling for some fake internet business opportunity, just use common sense. If they make it sound way to easy or the opportunity sounds way to good to be true, then it probably is.
Finding Real Internet Business Opportunities
In order to find a true home internet based business opportunity, you will need to know what to look for as well as how to do some basic research. Although there are a ton of phony businesses out there, finding a true internet based business opportunity isn’t entirely impossible if you can figure out to separate the treasures from the garbage.
Before investing your money into any type of internet business, make sure you do some research on the person or company behind the business. With access to the internet, this should be too hard. All you have to do is search for the name of the company or the person’s name with either the word, “review” or “scam” behind it. You’ll have to be careful though because many of these shady companies know that people will do this and will purposely write up articles with titles that make you think it’s a negative piece about the opportunity only to give it positive feedback. This often happens when you have programs that offer affiliate programs where many people will aim to rank for the terms that you are searching for.
Another thing you will want to keep in mind is that most people simply don’t put in the amount of time and effort that is needed to be successful with an internet based business. This means that you can research on a legit and real opportunity only to find complaints from people who never even put in the work.
Checking the Better Business Bureau is another thing that you can do to see if they have any complaints file against them. Now although you should take other people’s opinions into consideration, you shouldn’t let those opinions dictate your future.
2. How does the seller make his/her money?
The best internet business opportunities are the ones where the promoter or marketer of the opportunity is making most of their money from the same type of business that they are trying to get you to buy into. There are tons of “businesses” out there that tell you to make money by selling ebooks on how to make money. These don’t even make any sense! If the ebooks actually showed you how to make money, then why not just use what the ebooks tell you instead of selling them?
Listen, if I make most of my money off of selling a program to you on how to build a successful internet business instead of from the type of business that I’m trying to sell you on, then it’s best not to listen to me. However, if I sell you on a business and it’s also something that I personally make most of my income on, then chances are, it’s the real deal.
Searching through the hundreds of internet business opportunities out there can take a lot of time if you have to do research on every opportunity that comes your way but unless you have a ton of money to just burn as well as a lot of time on your hands, you’ll be glad you did your due diligence.
