Today, working from home and running your own home business has never been a more attractive prospect. In fact, this is so true that people are giving up everything only to find out that they have been fooled by false advertising because they didn’t see the red flags. For this reason, we have compiled some useful information for you to follow.
Firstly, you should be researching any potential opportunities and this includes compensation plans. How long has the opportunity been going? Is it viable and have people been linked with the opportunity before? Just as you would when buying something online, you need to gather opinions like they are going out of fashion. As opposed to seeing a handful of opinions and views from people that are linked with the opportunity, you should be going out there and finding a couple of hundred different views and opinions.
Things to Consider
Source of Money? – Firstly, you need to ask yourself where the money is coming from because this will lead to more questions. For example, is there a viable group of people that will buy from your service? How many units will need to be sold in order to make an amount of money that will allow you to live normally? Is the opportunity even legal?
Who is Your Boss? – Before entering an opportunity, you should really find out who it is that you are working for and what your role is within their company. If you do not know this information and have no way of obtaining it, there is a high chance of it being a scam. If the company is legitimate, they will want you to know the relevant information including the location of their headquarters.
The Ad – Finally, you should be reading the ad over and over again so you can spot flaws and red flags that suggest a scam. Firstly, the ad should be available on the site of the company as well as on third-party sites. Secondly, they need to be realistic as opposed to offering you the world for only ‘x’ amount of hours per week. Thirdly, the ad should never suggest a lifestyle by having photos of piles of money, big houses, and sports cars. Ultimately, companies don’t care how you spend your money because they just want you to help the company. Also, be on the look-out for false testimonials since people can actually get paid for fake reviews.
As long as you keep these three things in mind, you should be able to spot the false opportunities from the genuinely good ones!
