These days there are online business opportunities absolutely everywhere, but is there any legitimacy to them? Opportunities like Empower Network and other similar programs are everywhere but can you actually build an income from home or is everything simply one big scam? Today we find out.
The main problem with online business is that the industry has given itself an absolutely terrible reputation. There is so much misleading information out there that regular people often believe it to be impossible to get anywhere.
When you are looking to join any home business there are a number of quick checks you can make to ensure it is a safe and legal opportunity and not ‘too good to be true’, including:
1) The business should be approved by the Federal Trade Commission.
2) Home businesses are also usually members of the Direct Selling Agency.
3) Organizations such as the Better Internet Bureau will be featured on their website if they have passed their screening procedure.
4) The products of a business will tell you a lot about it’s legitimacy.
Number 4 is a very important tip. Many people are sucked into opportunities by the sheer excitement and promise of an easy life, with money generating on autopilot. Ask anyone who has become their own boss and you’ll be told it is nothing like that.
While it’s nice to see how much potential income you could generate you must realize that without a solid product you can not expect to do so if the product is weak and unattractive.
Most home businesses inflate their membership cost and provide poor quality products purely as a way to facilitate their commission plan.
How are you expected to ‘sell’ a business to others knowing you could buy better quality products for less cost elsewhere? You’re not. And they know this. But the promise of a mega affiliate plan is often enough to tempt you at least for a couple of months before you realize.
Your own determination to work for yourself will go a long way to decide how far you go. Once you have found a genuine opportunity there is a much bigger decision to be made. Empower Network is a proven company yet you would need to decide for yourself if you believe it fits your personality and provides services you actually enjoy using. If somebody told you that you could potentially change your life with a decision you would take all the time in the world to ensure it was right, so take that concept into a home business.
