A friend of yours recommended you to join them in a great new online business venture. They said it was the best opportunity on the internet. There was the promise that you would make all kinds of money in a short period of time. The product is great and will be easy to sell. What do you do? Do you just go ahead and join because your friend recommended it? Do you just take a quick look at the site, see the promises, fill out the form, click the join button then pay the fee required to join from your PayPal account? How do you know you have signed up to a great opportunity that will fulfill your dreams of making an income from this online company? Where do you begin? Frustrated Network Marketer–The Search Is on…Part One.
One of the first things I would do is go to the site and look for a phone number, address, names and pictures of the owners and email address. If you cannot find these and the only thing present is an email address then that should raise a red flag. This would not be a company I would join for good reason. If you are close enough that you can drive by the address go check it out and if you are not close by then use Google maps and check out the street view. If what you see is not the same as shown on the site then stay away.
When joining a company make sure you use a good credit card that will do chargebacks. If the only way to join is to issue a check, money orders or bank wire that should raise a red flag and the best advice is to stay away from that company. Make sure there is a return policy as only good companies will have one. Money earned in the opportunity that is delivered in the form of cash through a courier service is a sure indication you are in a scam. Delivery by courier is used to avoid postal service fraud but remember there are still records held by the courier company of where the parcel was delivered. If the company is investigated you may also find yourself in serious trouble with the law.
If the company you are looking at uses a private mailbox number such as one to a house or even a mailbox at a store (non postal service) then it is most likely a scam and they use these mail box numbers to avoid postal service fraud. Red Flag – Stay Away.
There is good reason to do your due diligence when looking for a business opportunity online. If you don’t you may find the investment you put in is gone and you have nothing to show for it except an empty wallet. There are great online marketing companies out there where you can, with a little hard work and persistence, reach your goals and dreams. Frustrated Network Marketer–The Search Is on…Part One is to get you thinking before you sign on the dotted line so you don’t become frustrated by making a bad uninformed decision. Do what it takes to get the information you need to make the decision so your experience turns out to be a positive one.
