the benefits of being an independent business owner
without committing to a large investment.
choice. You're not alone in recognizing the advantages
of these type of businesses.
you'd like to make a wise choice as to WHICH ONE of
the many opportunities available to join as well, right?
I will go through some of the aspects you should consider
when looking into starting your own business, I want
you to do something else first.
with any marketing business, you're going to have to
become good at sales. However, there are options as
to which way you get your sales.
you want to work strictly online, offline, or both?
*Do you want to sell products only?
*Or recruit a downline to sell with you?
is where you must think about what you want to do on
a daily basis and make some decisions based upon your
strengths and desires.
OFFLINE, OR BOTH?
instance, the online world uses written communication
extensively. You don't necessarily have to be great
at writing, but you must be able to communicate clearly,
write effective advertising, and maintain business correspondence.
you be willing to call distant prospects if necessary?
Or do you expect to conduct all your business via email?
Will you need to write sales letters or build a web
site? Or do you want to work with a company that provides
those items for you? The personal touch is always better
in business, but are you willing to work that way?
selling requires face to face contact and sales tactics.
How will you talk to your prospects? Where will you
get your leads? How much time, traveling, or investment
will this take?
are all items to consider and as such, you need to identify
which areas you are strong in or willing to work at
are literally thousands of products, both physical and
digital. The best products are those that you personally
have an interest in, and those with a growing market.
However, are you simply interested in selling a quality
product line to others or recruiting a downline to sell
with you? Which process do you expect to be better at?
Can you sell enough product to make the kind of money

with that aren't producing what you expected. Is it
the program, or does it just not fit well with the strengths

there is nothing wrong with learning more to improve
yourself and fortify your weaknesses. There is a lot
of information available on marketing products and recruiting
others, both online and offline. There are always services
available for hire to help you in the areas you need
some programs offer extra training for serious individuals

just because you like the money it's supposed to make
if it means doing things that either you aren't good
at or don't like. It WON'T make that kind of money for
you in that instance anyway.
