    How To Make Sure That Your Home Based Business Opportunity Is Not A Scam

    How To Make Sure That Your Home Based Business Opportunity Is Not A Scam
    by James B. Byrd

    The dream of owning your own home based business has been beacon of hope for millions of people for various reasons. It can be the resolution to those looking for additional income, retirees, mothers of young children, or the individual who is simply sick and tired of their current job and are looking to "fire their boss". As more and more people investigate home business opportunities there are just as many scam artists and con men looking into ways to take advantage of people. So how do you know if a home based business is a scam or the real deal? You can search through sites such as the BBB or Better Business Bureau or become a detective to track down proof of legitimacy or you can save yourself some time and effort by justifying the hype,investigating your obligation and verifying the bottom line.

    1. Justify The Hype

    Hype is defined as being so extarodinary that it defies logical reasoning such that the promises are imposible to believe and improbable to concieve. It really is a "fairy tale" told so convincingly that it sedeuces those who dream of using home based business opportunity as a means to realize a better future. The income claims must be justified by sound logic and examination, How many of the millionaires started from scratch and started without a list? Is a statement of the income claims avaialable? Is the income claim posted on the website? Is there any tangible evidence that justify the hype? If you can't justify the "hype",and it's too good to be true, then it's just hype.

    2. Investigate your obligation

    You must investigate how much money, time, and resources this home business opportunity is going to cost. How much money will it cost to start-up your home business? Nothing from nothing is still nothing. Not only will you have start-up costs, but how much money will you need to sustain your home based business till it comes into profit? Did the "hype" ever really explained that to you?

    Then there is the time element. How much time will you devote to your business on a daily basis? How much time do you expect put in to your home business opportunity over the long haul? Did you believe the hype "just 10 hours a week and you'll be a millionaire in 6 months? If a home based business is "so easy", wouldn't everybody be doing it? If the time obligation fails to match the income, look at it as a "red flag" and run.

    What resources do you need to get your work from home business into profit? What do you lack in maketing or sales resources? You will have to use other resources for those skills that you lack. Sometimes, there these costs are overlooked. I know one opportunity where it was "free to join", but you had to shell out $1500 to learn "how to make money" as an affiliate using their products.

    3.Verify The Bottom Line

    This a reality check. Will this home based business enable you to earn or fund your dreams. Do you want to realize your dream doing your life time or will it be relieze after you're gone? The point is this: if you make 4$ for every widget you sale, then to become a millionaire, you must sale 250,000 of them. Now, I know there is a lot of talk about "leverage"(others on your team) to make your work easier. Well, the problem with that idea is that it is estimated that the average person in the network marketing industry only has 2.1 active members in their mlm downline.Make sure that your home based business opportunity can generate the cash flow that you need.

    If you have justified the "hype, investigated your obligation and verified the bottom line of your home business opportunity,then you are ready to begin your own journey to realizing your dream rather then expericing the never ending nightmare of a home business scam.

    Tips On How To Write A Keyword Rich Article 

    The buzz going around on the internet today is the use of keyword articles to attract visitors to a website.With the recent explosion for the use of article marketing, there seems to be some benefit to using this method in a home business marketing plan. This increased interest in the use of key words has created some confusion about the use of keywords as well as what they are and their value to a website owner.

    First of all, keywords are those that are entered into a search engine like google by an online user who is looking for specific information. They may not know the details of what they are searching for but, they will know it when they see it. For example, if a person is searching for tips finding home business leads, they have the option of entering many different search terms, which really is in reality what keywords are all about.

    They may enter the term 'find home business leads' or simply enter 'home business leads' and start looking at the search results pages for the information they can utilize. Terms such as 'leads' or 'business leads' may also be used and home business owners will have no idea what terms the user will look for and when starting their search most users seldom find what they want the first time. Unless, there is an article somewhere that uses that exact keyword phrase

    Typically, an article will contain a specific search term between four and 12 times, depending on the length of the article and the search term needs to be placed in the article so that the writing remains grammatically correct and the phrase is a natural order as though it belongs there and not just plugged in out of context. Unfortunately, some websites will use what is termed keyword stuffing, which uses the phrase 30 or 40 times in a four or 500 word article, which is a turn off for the search engines and really offers nothing of value to the web searcher.

    Articles need to be of some use to the person conducting the search. If the online business company that sells leads can produce a series of articles on the best way to use leads or what to do after you have purchased leads and how to retain the leads, they will provide valuable information that can draw visitors to their site where they may actually buy the leads

    These articles can be published on their own website on pages dedicated to helping potential customers learn how to use leads. They can also be published on home based businessites as tips for others. One thing that articles must not do is advise the readers to visit a specific site or a specific business. This is unacceptable to search engines as well as to other web ezine publishers.

    All published articles can have an author's biography giving the author credit for the article as well as outline their competence in the subject matter. The block on these articles could talk about their expertise in providing home based business leads and the years they have been involved in the business as well as mention they operate a business at the website location, including URLs.

    Why Auto Responders Are Necessary For Your Home Based Business

    Why Auto Responders Are Necessary For Your Home Based Business

    In an online home based business opportunity, an auto-responder is the 'electronic secretary that automatically returns a message to anyone who submits an email address. The auto-responder is used not only in gathering data about perspective customers but also informs and follows up with them. In the network marketing business, it has been said that the 'fortune is in the follow up'. Most people who start an online home based business failed to have a system which they can contact and follow-up with visitors to their website. Many home based business company web-sites' are inadequate when it comes to acquiring customers online. Here are four reasons why you must have an auto-responder for your home based business opportunity.

    The first reason is for list building, in order to maintain a successful online enterprise you must maintain a list of both prospective and repeat customers. One error that many people make when beginning their online endeavor is the lack of such a list of prospects. It has been stated that your money will be found in your list, which is something that a good auto-responder can be used for as it will collect information on prospects such as name and email addresses to populate lists based on interest 24 hours a day.

    Second is building trust as any new online business is weakened by the fact that your prospective customer neither knows you or is known by you. When people are making purchases from unknown sellers they tend to be more cautious. The auto-responder allows you to take that lack of knowledge and slowly eliminate it through the automated emails that will usually contain offers that are beneficial to the needs of your prospects.

    The third reason is mass mailings. As your list continues to grow, you will have to maintain contact with your prospects and customers or you will soon lose them. A list of three thousand prospects would be quite time consuming if you had to send each one a personal email. For online home based business opportunities, time is your most valuable asset. The auto-responder for mass e-mailing is a short cut you can't live without and have success in your business.

    The final reason is that you need a captured page A capture page is a page on a website containing a form that "captures" the visitor's name and email address for the website owner. The information is then channeled into the process of attempting to sell goods or services to the visitor. The capture page usually contains a code that comes with the business owner's marketing software. This eliminates the need for the owner to know HTML programming. This page makes the harvesting of visitor information automatic, thus generating lists of potential customers or clients.

    These are only four reasons why you need auto-response for your online home based business, but to ensure success in your endeavor don't get started without one.
