Why Home Based Or Multi Level Marketing Business And How To Pick One

First Why Home Based or Multi Level Marketing Business? If you don’t know you better before you get started.

Most hype blamed on the Home Based or Multi Level Marketing companies is because “it did not make me rich” in whatever time frame you wanted. Those who don’t want to take responsibility blame others. But we got past that in my Business Owner Mindset article. If you didn’t, go back and study it again, if you still don’t get it quit now! For those of you who do get it let’s go forward.

Instead of studying every business model let’s just look at what is available to you.

New store front or shop or Franchise store location.

I want to start my own business but I don’t have a lot of capital to start with so I need one that I can do a little bit at a time. I don’t want a fair to large investment, employees, physical location or inventory. So Home Based, Multi Level Marketing or Network Marketing companies meet my needs. Additional with marketing online I can adjust my strategy when needed. Additionally, I can create warm markets from cold markets and continue to grow my business.

So with that decision behind us, what companies interest you?

First, find the products that can make you money. So consider the industry, the quality, are they consumable or collectable, are they affordable, is there a “need” or “want”, do you have to inventory products or are they direct shipped, are they patented, are they proven effective and are they also sold in stores. There is no right or wrong answer, it’s your business.

Next, the pay plan, how do they pay you for building your business? All Multi Level Marketing company’s will pay for recruiting because this creates that up front commission for you building efforts until the product residuals begin to increase. There must always be the selling of products or it’s not a business for consumers. I will never help you or offer you a company that only pays to recruit. Consider the how they reward you for your efforts, are there bonuses for over achievers, what is the residual income, do I have a choice of when I’m paid? Is it paid weekly or monthly, by check or deposit?

Lastly, the Multi Level Marketing Company, is it stable, how long have they been in business, who is the leadership, is it private or publicly owned, is there any market saturation, what is their reputation and are they Pioneers, Close followers or Late followers of their products?

There are many neutral website that have much of this data available. Do a lot of research, read and follow blogs and articles. What system are you using to market your company? Read on…

Expanding Your Business and Selling Products Online

Using an ecommerce web shop and selling online to bring more money to your business.

In 2009, €141 million was spent online in Europe, and this number is forecasted to increase to €190 million by 2014. Average spend per online shopper will rise from €483 in 2009 to €601 in 2014.

These statistics show that people these days like to buy from the comfort from their own home, and for retailers, this opens up massive opportunities. Instead of selling to passing footfall, and residents in your own city, you now have the potential for a global audience.

Having an ecommerce website does not mean paying a web design company thousands of pounds to build you a web shop and then paying them to update it for you every time you get new stock. Most decent web design companies can build you a basic online shop for around £700. Obviously for more comprehensive solutions and advanced features, the price will rise depending on requirements.

Whatever your budget is, a good web design company will be able to go though it with you and explain the best way to use your money. There is very good potential of a high ROI (return on investment) so try to give yourself as big a budget as possible. It won’t be long until you have got your initial investment back and making a nice profit to add to your overall margins.

Maintenance and updating is easy. A decent ecommerce system will have a “Back Office” admin area allowing you to manage your own stock. Adding/deleting products when you need to, and managing item descriptions and quantities are as easy as A-B-C. You can also use your back office as a stock management tool, enabling you to track all your stock levels and keep an eye on what needs replenished.

Another great feature is that you can access you web shop’s back office from any where in the word… I’m sure you can see how handy this would be when on holiday, trips away… etc.

The system will also come with a CMS (content management system) built it, so you are able to add additional pages with content other than product pages. These pages are great to use as your “about us”, news, promotions, special offers, or any other informational pages you may require. And as with any other CMS, you can add new pages, delete old and out of date ones, and of course edit all content in just a few clicks.
