With the current economic conditions around the world, it is no surprise that a lot of people are turning to the Internet to startup their own businesses. As you would probably agree with me running your own business could be one of the most profitable things you can do. This is especially true if you have lost your job, or fear you are going to loose it in the near future. There seems to be no end in sight to the dismal economic conditions. Starting a small business opportunity from home could be the answer. However I want to share some good news with you that there is still hope especially for those who would take action.
Starting up a small business from home could range from being a data entry clerk, completing surveys for companies where you are paid for your opinions on products and ideas, assembling artifacts at home and selling them, among a host of others. However, the most prominent among the considerations of starting a business from home is either affiliate marketing and selling your own consumable products online.
Basically affiliate marketing is selling someone else’s product online so that you are paid commissions based on your sales. This is one very viable way of starting a small or big business opportunity from home. The most common way of this is registering with Clickbank, commission junction, among others, where you market downloadable, digital products.
The second most common option is partnering with a company and also selling their products and making commissions based on your sales volume. This is much like a affiliate marketing just that it’s a bit ‘deeper’. With this your have your own corporate website usually referred to as your ‘back office’ where you operate from. This is real business and should be treated as such.
Finding the right company to join or partner with can be a long, frustrated and an expensive journey. You will need to do a lot of research on the company you want to join. Some of the things you should be looking for are who is behind the company, the management team, how long they have been in business, the issues they’ve run into AND how they dealt with such issues. The products they sell and eventually you will sell or promote should you decide to join them. And when you are researching on the products being marketed, make sure it is a product you will be proud of to stand by. Also ensure that it is a unique product in the market place. There are so many – in fact it’s almost countless – similar products online today that you would have a hard time trying to differentiate one from the other. So remember to partner with a company where great products, unique products, products that are high in demand in the market place are the ones being sold.
The next thing you need to check to find out out about the compensation plan of the company. This is basically how you are rewarded for your efforts. There should be good use of leverage in the compensation plan. This is so that you can work hard in your first few years to build a team and then have a good amount of residual income that you can rely for the rest of your life – or even will it to your grand kids if you want to. Here is what to look for in the compensation plan: it should pay a huge upfront commission on your sales. This will motivate you to go out and make more sales. And, also there should be a huge residual commission on the back end, from the efforts of your team members as this will allow you to retire early and enjoy the rest of your life – do whatever you’ve always dreamed of doing.
Having been an Internet Entrepreneur since November 2005, what I have found is that the compensation plan of most companies, in fact I would go ahead and say that more than 97% – never caters for the points raised above. The compensation plan either pays you very little on the front end and then a good residual based on the output of your team or vice versa.
So what I recommend is to look out for the points we have discussed above and when you finally find a company you want to partner with, check that they have all these in place and I believe that your small business start up could be off to a flying start.
I believe this article has helped you in knowing how to start a small business opportunity online by giving you the important points to look for.
