Some Overrated “Work From Home” Offers: Part 2


We’ve seen a few kinds of work from home offers that are often hyped online as excellent ways to make money but very often end up producing results that were far less than what they buyer would expect. And in many of these cases those involved have actually lost money instead of making any. While there are definitely many perfectly legitimate work from home opportunities which can help people earn money online from the comfort of their home, one needs to be very careful in evaluating the programs that they join. Think of how an experienced investor or business man would act when investigating a million dollar business opportunity. They would check out every detail of the deal, as well as the people behind it, to make sure that any claims that were made are actually true. What you need to do is similar.

Here are a few other examples of home based business opportunities that are often little more than hype:

  • Product Distribution

This shares some similarities with multi level or network marketing, but is actually a different business model. While you may get bonuses or commissions if you recruit new people into the business, the main focus here is to sell the actual products to consumers interested in them. This doesn’t mean, however, that the deal is going to be 100% legitimate and profitable. What you first need to do is to look at the products that you’re going to be selling. Is it something that people will really want to buy and keep buying in the long term, or is it just a “fad” product that will go out of style in a few months, if not weeks? What prices are you going to pay the supplier for the product and at what prices will you be able to sell it? Is there a real market for the product and which distribution channels can you use to sell it (online auctions, classifieds, e-commerce, physical kiosks/stores, etc)? You need to find an answer to all of these questions before you should jump into such an opportunity.

Also, you should be wary of any company that requires you to make a large bulk order before you can begin distributing the product. Very often, people who failed to pay close attention and get answers to the above questions have run into big problems. They ended up with a garage full of nearly worthless items that they simply had no way of selling at a profit, either online or offline.

When you sell physical items, you will also need to take into considerations the related costs of selling the products when you calculate the potential profits you can make. These costs include advertising fees, payment processing fees, online auction charges and more. While they may seem easy to ignore at first, the reality is that they can affect your profit margins in a significant way.

Tomorrow, we will take a look at some more work from home opportunities to watch out for.

Why Many Internet Marketers Give Up – Part 2

Why Many Internet Marketers Give Up – Part 2


We all know that there are plenty of success stories to be found when it comes to the online marketing industry. Some people have built million dollar businesses right from their homes. But what about those who simply gave up. Let’s keep looking at some of the common reasons. But, maybe you are asking yourself: why does this guy want me to see what people who failed did? I want success!! Well the answer is simple: because you sometimes need to see where people messed up so that you don’t repeat their errors. There is a quote that I often like to use: “The wise man learns from his mistakes, but the genius learns from the mistakes of others.” Now let’s get back to seeing some of what causes people to give up:

  • They Let Others Talk Them Out Of It

This happens, and it does quite often actually. Somebody could have a million dollar business plan, but then their friend/wife/mother/uncle/dog tells them that “that’s stupid, it will never work” or that “you can’t make money on the internet, it is all a big scam” and then they simply put their plans behind. To have success in any business, whether its online or not, you have to believe in yourself. Do you really think that nobody was laughing at Bill Gates when he quit college to start Microsoft? Well, considering the fact that he’s now the richest man in the world, I somehow have a feeling that these people are saying: “Damn! If only I was more friendly with that geeky guy in glasses!!”.

  • They Wanted Someone To Hold Their Hand Every Step of the Way

Part of running any business is that you need to be able to make the right decisions by yourself. There will be nobody explaining to you what you have to do, how to do it and when to do it. YOU will need to look up the information necessary to build, operate and expand your business. While you may partner up with others who can give you advice, remember that these people also have their own businesses to run and therefore won’t want to constantly be looking out for you.

  • They Had a Problem or Setback and Quickly Got Discouraged

Again, this is a common occurrence. If I said to you that everything will always be A-OK in the online business industry, I would be lying to you. Things can go wrong. Sometimes, your ads and sales pages will not convert as well as you want them to. A “super money maker method” could turn out to be completely worthless. An affiliate network could go bankrupt, leaving hundreds of affiliates high and dry. This happens. Deal with it. When a problem occurs, the best thing to do is to start thinking of logical solutions: what could I have done differently so that this doesn’t happen to me again in the future? That is the question that you need to be always asking yourself in case of an issue with your business.
