Characteristics Of A Proven Income Opportunity
I'm tired of hearing it. Everywhere I look on the internet, there is someone trying to sell me on the idea that their program is the best, "you could make ,000 per month doing this", "I will help you build your downline", or "how would you like to grow your list to thousands in a week?" Most of us have tried a number of these programs and failed. Some have actually succeeded however. There are actually some programs that have proven themselves to be a genuine income generating opportunity. Where they are and how you can identify them is the goal of this article. How do you find a proven income opportunity on the internet?
They call it "hype", advertising, ballyhoo, brouhaha, buildup, plug, plugging, promotion, puff, puffery, racket, razzmatazz. It looks like this. You see an add saying that you could make thousands in one month. You click on the add and the webpage shows you a bank statement with dozens of deposits in various amounts. They claim that the deposits belong to them, but in fact they belong to the founder of the program that they are actually an affiliate for or they are fake. They are lying and hoping you will fall for the lie. You pay to join anyhow, hoping that this one will be different. Maybe it is a new program and you are happy to be joining at it's beginnings. At least you will be at the top of the matrix. There is no evidence one way or the other, but it is one heck of a sales pitch. And you haven't talked to anyone.
Here is rule number one: A proven income opportunity is one that has a real voice. There has to be a person, a teleconference, or a company representative that you can connect with. They offer their contact information freely. When you call them, they answer the phone and they answer your questions directly. A shadow upline does not help you. Your upline needs to be engaged. If they are not willing to talk to you directly before you join, they will certainly not want to talk to you after you join. You have given them what they want, the money in their pocket. Finding someone that is willing to mentor you in your new venture is invaluable.
Rule number two: An experienced internet marketer or company with a valid opportunity has more than just a sales page. They have a real webpage with some PR that is on page number one in the search engines for prominent keywords. They also have a lot of high PR links that are relevant to their niche. This says two things about the venture. They have put some work into their business and they know what they are doing.
Rule number three: They must have a thorough high quality training program with a trainer included. "Thank you for buying, you are on your own" just doesn't cut it. How can you expect success without a methodical step by step plan for success or someone who has already done it? It is a good idea to have someone train you that is already making money with the same venture that you can get in touch with personally.
Rule number four: You may have to go out and find someone with the experience you require. It helps if the program has it's own forum. Post to a forum regularly so people can get to know you. You can easily identify the more experienced members by the number of posts and the content. They just know what they are talking about. Forums are searchable, so you can look for the answers to your questions before asking. Usually the topic you have in mind has already been discussed. Otherwise, go ahead and ask your question. That is what forums are for.
Rule number five: Look for a proven income opportunity where program forum moderators are paid employees. This is determined by asking the moderator of a forum themselves. You can do this by sending them a private message if you want to be discreet about it. This tells you that the company asking you to join their program actually has a paid professional staff and are serious about their business.
Rule number six: Finally, a proven income opportunity is one where you actually start making money. If you are following their plan for success, and you are not pulling some dough out of it in two to three months, there is something very, very wrong. If you understand how their opportunity is supposed to make you money, and you execute the plan to the best of your ability, you should see some results. If you do not, drop it and look for something else. There are plenty of other opportunities available.
Don't be a victim of scamming. Research the venture you are considering before taking action. Act slowly, methodically, carefully to avoid the pitfalls. There are no guarantees, but with some common sense, you might just find a proven income opportunity.
