There might be a good chance, if you’ve been around this planet for more than 20 minutes, you’ve been approached by someone who had the “absolute opportunity of a lifetime!” Look at the junkmail you are receiving every day in your emailbox about the so called home based business opportunities that are growing at unprecedented rates in the last 3 months and it’s looking to be the next ‘whatever’ (insert a large company).
Yes, you’re so right, I’m talking about the home based businesses arena. A business (any business, not just a home based business) is a living entity, and it takes plenty of effort (that’s right, I said effort) to make it a profitable entity. What is important is not how fast the company is growing, it’s important how you treat the business or how passionate you are about the products.
My first experience was opportunity based so needless to say, I lost a lot of money with this home based business opportunity. It’s hard to refuse when it sounds like a great idea once someone makes the decision to start. Just look up “home based business opportunity” on any search engine, and everyone and their mom has a multi-million, self-automated system for generating you the cash you need starting yesterday. Looks like you can’t lose, right?
Do yourself a big favor: flush the hype, forget the opportunity and take an honest look at yourself. Ask yourself these questions, do I treat my business as a business or a hobby? Do I really like the products they offer me?
Find the right message and the right audience for your products. In other words, look for your target market. You have to offer a compelling and benefits-based message for your prospects that will most positively respond to the product or service that you are offering.
Those prospects you attracted will be product or service users. If they have good results of using the products, they then have ‘the opportunity’ to serious online marketing.
In conclusion, if you are serious about making it happen in the home business arena, if you are sick and tired of being on the outside looking in, look for a business and start using their products and services before you start with the opportunity of that business. I am involved with two home based business companies. Needless to say that I am only looking for the right audience who are benefit my products before they discover the opportunity and the serious online marketing tactics we provide.
