In layman's terms, that means that you probably want a business that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars to just sign up and that doesn't require you to spend several hundreds dollars a month on just autoship of your products. The spending of more money than what you're taking in, contributes to more network marketers failing in this industry than anything else.I'm here to tell you that it does not have to be this way.
But I have to ask you...
Is Network Marketing Even Right For You?
It does no good knowing where to find business opportunities if you're not into network marketing. A lot of people won't ask you that question because they're afraid of the answer you may give. But the truth will set you free and point you in the right direction you want to go in.
You see, if you don't have a strong affinity for network marketing, then you're gonna struggle with it. Then next you'll then be looking up info on how to not fail in your network marketing business.
What I'm getting at is that you have to be 100% on board with network marketing. In other words, you have to believe in the industry. That doesn't mean you have to agree with everything that goes on, but just believe that it's possible to make money as a network marketer.
If you love all the best parts of network marketing, including building a team and connecting with people, and sharing products, and you are a driven self-starter, then you have the ingredients it takes to succeed in this industry.
Now that you know you got "it", it's time to find out where to find opportunities that fit what you're looking for.
How to Find the Best Opportunity
By now you've probably been through a lot of business opportunities - some real and some complete scams. You may have even spent more money than you should've trying to make money. Odds are you're fed up losing your hard-earned money to programs that flat-out don't work.
In other words, you're done being in the 97% of network marketers who end up in a lot of debt and ultimately give up. Too many hopeful network marketers end up spending a lot of money in their network marketing business on just signing up, costly tools and websites, and expensive autoships. Like I stated before these things can eat a hole in your wallet and drive you to the brink of frustration.
OK, so now you're wondering just where to find business opportunities that don't involve any of those things? It's gonna take some detective work on your part due to the fact that a lot of the answers to these questions will require you digging into each company's compensation plan and even reading in-between the lines.
However, your first step is to decide what kind of products you want to be involved with. For some people it's skincare for others it's nutrition, and then for some it's average run-of-the-mill products that people use everyday. Whatever that you're into, there is probably a network marketing company in that particular niche.
Google Is Your Friend
You'll want to Google the niche you want to be in followed by the phrase "network marketing companies". You will want to look carefully at how much it costs to start up, the ongoing costs (some companies charge you access to your own back office!), and how much you need in product volume every month in order to earn your full check.
Next you'll want to find 2-3 distributors for that company and ask them what are the ongoing costs to be a distributor.
Use a Home Business Directory
The second way to learn where to find business opportunities is to use the business directory on the website called http://www.npros.com
Again, you'll have to do a little bit of "leg" work to gather all the information so you can make an informed decision.
Where to Find Business Opportunities - The Better Approach
Whether you use Google or http://www.npros.com to search for opportunities, know that your search is going to be an exhausting one unless you have more criteria set in place. In other words, you must have a starting point or else it will take you a very long time just sorting through these companies.
One smart criteria to have in place it to choose companies that have been in business a few years. The reason being is that new companies are just riskier. This will narrow down your search by a lot.
Another good criteria is to find companies that have more than just one type of product. This gives you more choices when it comes to sharing the product.
The more choices you have the better your opportunities of finding potential customers and future downline members who would be interested in either the products or the opportunity. When you've dwindled your list down to companies that fit these two criteria, then you can sift and sort through the ones that are left.
Now you know how and where to find business opportunities that work for the average person. What you just have done is stacked the odds in your favor.
