Overall, there is no best home based business opportunity. Everybody is different and we all find a variety of different things appealing, naturally, but everybody involved in the affiliate marketing industry believes that their opportunity is the best thing out there. So, why do most of them fail despite having potentially huge affiliate plans to earn from?
An affiliate plan is meant to be an extra feature, but most online businesses get this completely wrong and focus their entire attention on their ability to help you make money online, with little or no attention put into the actual product they are going to provide members with.
A great affiliate plan is something everybody would like their opportunity to have, of course, but without a genuinely useful product it is almost completely useless. Why? Just take a look at the massive number of multi-level marketing companies which seem to appear and disappear within the blink of an eye.
This causes what is known as a domino effect in most multi-level marketing opportunities. Not everybody can be building an income, there will always be quite a few people who are just starting out or perhaps haven’t experienced any results with their business yet. If they have no products to keep them as a member, they will quit very quickly. This reason is why most new MLM companies crash within the first year.
Most of us get swept up in the excitement of discovering the next big thing, an opportunity with the greatest affiliate plan you have seen to date, something that surely everybody is going to want to be a part of… As a result, we overlook everything else and by the time we realize there is no real value within the company it’s too late.
A good online business doesn’t necessarily need to provide a ground breaking earnings opportunity, it simply takes a leaf out of the book of any successful high street business and places a high level of importance on it’s product range. A good example of this is a company like Global Domains International, which has been established now for over a decade in the online industry.
If a product or service is something which people would want to receive even if there was no affiliate plan attached to it then you know you have found an opportunity with a solid future in front of it. It will not suffer from the common MLM issue of having it’s bottom level of members dropping out constantly, because there should be a large number of people who are there to use the products rather than just to build an income as an affiliate.
Quite simply, it doesn’t matter how much you ‘could’ earn with a particular program. You will not earn anything worth mentioning if you are trying to promote a company offering useless, over priced products.
Any new MLM opportunity or affiliate program can call itself the best home based business in it’s class but if you really want to test the potential of a new business it’s very easy to do. Simply delve into it’s product package and you’ll be able to see if it’s something which would still attract people if they removed the ability to build an income.
