Internet Home Business

If you are considering starting you own online business, then there are a number of things that you should consider.

Firstly if you have looked using a search engine such as Google and typed in “Internet Home Business”, you will see literally thousands of opportunities that will all claim to make you $000′s of dollars with minimal effort. The problem for you is to work out which ones are legitimate businesses and which ones are scams or Get Rich Quick schemes that will fleece you of your hard earned cash.

Buying into a home based internet business is the similar as buying into any other kind of business, and it is vital that some business buying fundamentals are applied. In fact buying into an internet based business requires even more scrutiny of the business opportunity as it is often very hard, if not impossible to get some of the information that would normally be available if buying a non-internet based business. Eg Getting a full set of accounts so that you can estimate a Return On Investment (ROI) or interviewing the principals of the company to provide further details of the market and opportunities.

This just means that you will have to be a little more careful in your choice of business and be prepared to do a little more research on the product or business that you choose.

Evaluate the market that the business/product is selling to.

Is the product you are investing in is sold to consumers that will become repeat customers, or is the product a once of purchase?

It is generally accepted that getting repeat business from a customer is 7 times easier than getting a new customer, so if the product suite that you are selling offers repeat purchases or cross selling opportunities, then the product is a far more attractive proposition than a once off purchase.

Is the supplier of the product a reputable company?

A couple of simple checks on a business, such as emailing them with any concerns that you have, and seeing their response will give you a good idea of how the company operates.

  1. How long did it take to reply to your questions
  2. Were the answers valid or were they just a pre written script?

You can also check out Better Business Bureau, which will enable you to search their database to see if the business is legitimate or has any complaints about it.

Can the product or service be provided in an automated way?

Some ways of making money on the internet involve personal exertion for each dollar made. Paid Surveys for example will make you money, but you actually have to spend the time to do the survey to make money. This may well suit some people, but if you are striving to make a substantial amount of money on the internet, then this model is not for you.

If on the other hand the product is either a digital product, or you are acting as an affiliate for somebody else’s product, then this model will allow for greater scalability as you will be able to set up the system to operate in a hands free environment.

Basically you should try and estimate as best as you can, how much personal effort will be needed to establish the business, and how much personal effort is needed to run the business.

Take if from me, creating a website and selling products on the website is not a surefire way to make money, unless it is done properly, so you do as much research as possible.

  1. Find a proven formula for creating your internet home business and
  2. Resist the temptation to buy a “Get Rich Quick” business

Good luck with your projects!
