With the advent of technology and explosion of various communication channels on the Internet multiple opportunities have been created to 'Make Money From Home'.
WOW !! what an opportunity it is - be it for housewives, retired professionals, professionals wanting to take an early break in life, etc.,
In short one can 'create wealth creatively' and 'be his/her own boss' at the end of a long journey.
While it is easy to pull up web sites that speak and advertise on this topic at the click of a button, it is hard to identify the legitimate and ethical ones from the long list. The one that you finally decide on, might end up being a 'scam site'.
In this blog you will see what are the key factors to look for before deciding on an opportunity.
Key Factor 1 - Guarantee
Ensure guarantee is tagged along with an opportunity to make money from home. Web sites speaking about an opportunity minus the 'guarantee' is to be set aside. Such 'home programs' does not repose confidence in the minds of opportunity seekers.
Key Factor 2 - Payment Processor
A company may offer 'guarantee' - whether it be for 30 or 60 days - with an opportunity, but might fail to honor the same. What should you look for to ensure that money is 'REFUNDED' as guaranteed in the web site agreement ?
One should analyse and look for the elements involved at the time of signing up an opportunity to make money from home.
Elements are :
1. Payment of membership fees and sign up
2. Selecting the module you wish to work on
3. Getting trained ie., on line tutorial provided by the company
4. Submitting the work
5. Receiving the payment for the work done
The 5th element is the crucial part. If payment is routed through a reputed third party 'payment processor' then you are safe. If not, then you will be at the mercy of the company.
Reputed third party payment processors are PayPal, Plimus and 2CO to name a few. Companies using these processors will have to follow 'strict code of business ethics'. Companies violating such ethics and terms of agreement stand to face suspension or cancellation of their account by the processor.
eSellerate merchant software is used by companies to process their own payment. While the software is good, it is not a third party payment processor. Companies using it disguise this fact.
Choose a company that offers guarantee and is using a reputable third party payment processor like PayPal. These 2 key factors will ensure you will not get scammed out of your money.
Also, choose a company which has programs that are of interest to you. A company should not be stamped as a 'scam' if their programs are not of any interest to you. Signing up for a program that is of interest to you, withdrawing afterwards and getting the money as 'guaranteed' is a good business.
