There are literally thousands of hopeful internet entrepreneurs striving to make a living online. Some want to make more money, or to have more freedom to use their skills at home rather than at a typical job. Others would like to find a perfect wealth formula to earn some extra cash to support their family. Of course this would be the ideal scenario for most people, working from home, adjusting your work hours to fit in with your pleasures. Spending more time with your loved ones, going off for a game of golf, an hour or two fishing etc. What then is the best mechanism to achieve this?
Internet marketing which is probably the most popular method to make a living today; while not easy, is none the less a lucrative endeavour. You may have seen ads promoting services or products by internet marketers who boast earnings well into the millions. These are normally direct sales not mlm programs. These types of programs are many and varied and one should be super careful in doing their due diligence. It is very important to check that there is a company name and contact details on the front page, if there is none walk away. Some of these will sign you up and then you are on your own, for instance the author of this article joined a program this year, lured by the inviting sales page then signed up paid and then excitedly tried to contact his sponsor without success.
Then two days later he received a barrage of emails from the same sponsor trying to get him to sign-up for two other programs! All attempts to contact this women proved fruitless. Lucky for the author he was able to get a refund within 48 hrs. MLM programs take a lot longer to start receiving an income and depend on your downline buying some products and sponsoring another person into their business. Then they duplicate the same. Theoretically it sounds great if you find enthusiastic members who will go out and promote but if your prospect is too lazy or has a problem with contacting people then your business will suffer. The author is talking from experience here having sponsored more than 20 people into a program with very good products, the fuel additive reduced petrol consumption by up to 20% and the transmission product made the transmission run at at least 10% cooler. At his peak the author was selling more than $5000 a month in product sales.
However his downline could not duplicate his efforts despite him making numerous three way calls and personal presentations. His signups did have a few sign ups but a turmoil amongst the board of directors eventually caused the company to collapse destroying a huge opportunity. A good MLM program is one that has a good company behind it with a proven track record of stability on it’s own performance not one that is using a parent company. They should have tangible consumerable products with a constant demand for these products, so that one can sell them with confidence. Some other sites set up with Clickbank, Amazon, and eBay products espousing the great money you can make by giving away free sites, the only trouble is they’re not exactly free because some have a monthly subscription fee. Others are one and two-up programs where one has to pass up their first two sales to their sponsor. Often getting the first two sales is the hardest part!
A program that is worth looking at should be an actual education on how to market your business or businesses online, with easy to follow step by step videos that anyone can watch and apply the techniques.
The payment system should be fool proof providing credit card and Paypal features that ensure one gets paid instantly. As far as the constant rumor goes that PayPal will freeze one’s account goes the author has had a premier account for at least 5 years and never had a problem with Pay Pal. All enquires to their support desk have been answered within 24 hrs politely and to the point one could not ask for better service. So there you are, you will surely find a good company buried in amongst the maze but do your research and ask questions, to find out who runs the company just go to http://www.whois.com and get their details.
Best of luck!##
