In today’s financial environment, starting your own home based business just makes good sense to many people. And why not, it’s a great way to bring in some added income to pay off debts, or take that vacation you’ve been wanting to take. With that being said, many MLM home businesses are helping these people do just that. But are they right for you? Here are 10 quick tips to help you decide if the MLM home business industry is really right for you.1. Have patience. Don’t make the mistake of rushing out and signing up for the first home business you see. Take your time and do some research on the Internet. No matter what, don’t feel pressured into signing up or buying anything until you decide that this is what you want to do. You may want to get your questions answered by talking with other leaders in the MLM industry.2. Read all you can about the home business industry. There are plenty of good books about MLM and Network Marketing. Also, the Internet is full of great information. The more knowledge you have, the better decisions you’ll make.3. Look for a company that has a product you like, and one you’re comfortable with. This is a very important point. You need to like the product and the company. If you don’t have the belief in the product you’re building your home business on, then you’ll most likely fail every time. If you are excited about your product and your company, then it will be fun to promote your business. Be sure to check out the company. Get information from the Internet and from the BBB. What kind of reputation does the company have?4. Be sure that the product is consumable. Why? Because you really want to find a product that people will use over and over again. This will make for repeat sales month after month, and it makes building any MLM home business that much easier.5. Be sure the company has been around for at least 3 years. This is vital. It shows that the company is established and not a start-up company. You want to know the company you’ve chosen to partner with is going to be in business next month. I know there are no guarantee’s with any company, but by choosing one that has been around a while makes the odds more in your favor.6. Do they require you to stockpile or deliver products? If they do…run! No one wants to fill their garage with a bunch of different products, and no one wants to run all over town burning $4.00 a gallon gas trying to deliver them. Your company should ship products directly to your customer. Good MLM companies will have online ordering, or phone ordering for your customers.7. What does the compensation plan look like? Is it going to pay you money quickly? How often are you paid? Is there a quota involved? Are you required to purchase large amounts of product in order to qualify to be paid? You want to be sure the comp plan is fair and that you can actually get paid while you’re building your business.8. Is there company training provided? What kind? Online, phone, or a combination of both? Make sure you will receive the proper training before joining any home business. This is very important. Without a strong support team it will be much tougher for you to succeed.9. How will you market your business? Do you have to make cold calls? That’s not fun. Are there online marketing resources available? What are the costs involved?10. Are you willing to make a commitment? You have to give your home business at least one year of your time and effort. If you only plan on giving it a few months, stop. Don’t even waste your time because you’re only setting yourself up for failure. Plan on working it 10-20 hours a week, more at first. Be sure your family understands this and accepts it.There are plenty of MLM home based businesses that you can make money with. The range of products is endless. Hopefully these tips can get you off and running in finding the right home based business for you.
