Legitimate Work at Home Jobs For You? Why You Should Start a Home Business?
Herein the UK we have many recruitment websites where you can search for jobs of all kinds and I am sure it is the same around the world? Now within these recruitment websites that offer highend to low end job vacancies you will now find adverts for work from home jobs that sound great and just what you are afer however as you read down the advert it is not all as wonderful as it sounds.
Normally at the very bottom there are the words commsion based only or minimal start up costs. I have been there and it really annoys me as at the time like many other jobseekers in many other countries we get enticed into these adverts and get excited only to find it’s another let down. A job advert sohuld be just that….. a job!!
More often than not these work from home adverts are the same you find on many social media groups and they fall into the bracket of Multi Level Marketing.
What is Multi Level Marketing?
Multi-level marketing or MLM for short is a business strategy usually undertaken by many direct sales companies. Thi tactic is used to give an incentive to existing distributors to recruit new members by paying the existing distributor a percentage of their new members sales.
The existing member is normally responsible for training the new member parent companies system as the quicker they are up to speed then the quicker they make money form the new members sales. The term for new recruits is called the distributor’s downline.
Now I am not saying that all MLM companies are bad, but you can differeniate between a legitimate MLM business to a bad one.
A legitimate componie will focus on selling their products over recruiting whereas a a poorly run companie will focus on recruiting more salespeople.
They are not interested in their product only the start up fees that they receive upfront before you get access to the program which is nothing less than a pyramid scheme.
below is a structure for MLM commsion and recruitment structure, what does it look like to you?
To me it looks very much like a pyramid scheme and they make there money as I said through the registration fees.
I have learnt this as I signed up for one previously and the emphasis was aggressively for recruiting so much so that the wonderful way I was sold it soon became apparent that it was totally different in reality.
I paid £30 to join and could not actually view or try the business model until after I paid which I strongly advise against. Your taken in by the sales pitch and how much everyone can earn but if it was that great then everyone would be doing it! They look for one type of person, the ones who have low self confidence or money problems to entice them i with the hope of actually making real money. Stop as it does’nt work.
How can you work from home?
There are no magic formulas to make the money come rolling in and the titel work from home jobs is just that people want a job so they can stay at home but the correct term should be Home Business!
How many companies would actually employ someone to work from home straight away? not many however you can find and start a business from home once you have found something you like and understand.
To begin with you need to have the correct mindset in place;
I want to work from home doing my own business
You do not want to look for a job working from home as all those advertised are going to hit your pocket and waste your time.
Now the other thing I see alot of people post on social media makes me laugh as they post things like
“I need a business that I can start for free”
“Is there anything out there tha doesn’t cost anything to start up?”
Yes it’s called a job as you are getting paid for your time in return for you doing the work for the company and if your posting on social media sites like facebook then you are going to be inundated with MLM marketers offering you the very thing I have been writing about.
If you want your own business it will not come for free. you need to research, educate yourself and get out your comfort zone as it will not be handed to you on a plate!! WAKE UP!!!!
All businesses no matter if they are virtual or bricks and mortar need work put into them to build them and that is the only way you are going to succeed so I am sorry to spoil the party but get rich quick schemes so not exist.
GET RICH QUICK SCHEMES DO NOT EXIST!!!
Now before you go of and sulk there is legitimate business out there and that is what this site is all about, giving the reader advice.
I started out online by selling items on Ebay and became a power seller in my chosen Niche at the time and once it peaked I had caught the entrepreneurial bug so went on to bigger things such as a shop and Bistro. I have like nothing better than working for myself and furthered my online porfolio by selling on amazon as well.
A few yeas back I came across an article about affiliate marketing and that really appealed to me.
It got me thinking why hold stock and post it when you can advertise and sell other peoples and other companies stock and just earn a commission!
That made sense to me but I wasn’t sure how to go about it so as I suggested earlier on I done my research and after a few companies, I found a website called Wealthy Affiliate.
I was really impressed with what I read as not only was it a place to run my business from offering the web hosting and websites it actually taught you how to build out a website for the specific purpose of e-commerce selling.
I have two other fee earning websites in different niches that I have created from their training that enables me to write reviews on products and link them to the various selling sites for me to earn a commission.
what appealed to me with Wealthy Affiliate was the fact I could sign for free with no obligation to carry on after my free full access trial and not give and credit information over to them. In laymen s terms to can have full access of the whole site to try before you take it any further.
What you need to understand that businesses produce overheads no matter were they are and here is no different but for a monthly fee what you get would cost you much more if you was to operate through separate services.
Wealthy affiliate subscription of $49 per month includes
25 websites and 25 domain websites
state of the art training
global community of experts in various fields
24/7 supprt 365 days of the year
keyword research tool
plus various bootcamps
A single domain hosting service on most hosting sites is $20-$30 a month for one for exmple. You can read my full review here: My Wealthy Affiliate Review
This is my primary suggestion for running a business online and the easiest. It’s no easy an you will have to put the work in like anything but the rewards will come the more you put in. The key is being consistent and focus in what you are doing.
