Its not hard at all being able to spot a business scam. Just in case you dont know, I will inform you right now what to look out for and to stay away. You need to realize there are alot of people out there looking for the right internet business and not focused on the scams first. If you are not paying attention of whats out there, you can very easily be scammed.
This is how I look for possible scams and if you follow these particular guidelines you stand a better chance of not being taken for granted. First of all, the company or business has no product and you are just paying to be a part of it. Look out for if you cannot get a hold of a live person or after leaving messages they never call back.
Unprofessional web sites that look like they were set up by a elementary school student. Asking you for payment information just to be able to “test drive it”. Last time I checked a test drive is free and you should be able to look around the site for free. Also trying to promise you income just by signing you up.
These are a few things that you should look for when researching a company. Market driven products that are preferably digital. Meaning they can be put into your hands immediately. Well put together web sites and marketing software that took some time and money to create.
The ability to call and talk to someone. The name of the CEO or Founder and a way to contact them. It wont hurt to check their history. The ability to test drive the site – for free. A compensation plan that can create wealth by working the system. A training system in place to teach you step by step how to create wealth.
You can stay away from hotel meetings and can leave your friends and family alone. Internet marketing is one of the best business models in the world. You can work from wherever you want, when you want. You are able to leverage your time, money and effort. You never have to give sales presentations. You don’t have to host business presentations or product parties.
However, it is a simple business model that can easily be implemented with a few hours of day. The biggest problem I see with internet marketing is the average person will not commit to do the required simple tasks that create wealth. Remember, internet marketing does take time and work.
Please, if you are serious about online income that commit yourself to finding a mentor. Find people that are already achieving the level of success that you desire and then do what they do. If you follow this article when it comes to being scammed, you stand a better chance of not being scammed.
