If you are thinking about entering into the world of Social Networking, it’s important to do a little research about what you’re getting into and WITH WHICH COMPANY you’re getting into. Here are a few things to consider before jumping into the world of entrepreneurship.
1. Does the company offer CONSUMABLE products?
Having a range of consumable products makes a HUGE difference. It’s already in our budget to buy shampoo, mascara, eye cream and protein shake mix! If you have consumable products, you get repeat orders. It’s much easier to sell products people are already using and educate them on the importance of using better products that are both good for you and do what they say they will do.
2. Who’s your target market?
If you’re going to invest in a business opportunity, you need to speak to the needs of each demographic. The two fastest growing industries in the world are network marketing and health and wellness! People are becoming label-readers and they care about what goes on their skin and what goes in their bodies now more than ever. Honestly, years ago no one really cared about “gluten free,” but now they do.
3. Does the company give you the opportunity to build a business alongside what you already do?
Find something you can do alongside everything else on your plate; a Plan B next to your current job. You can always make it a replacement career once you get going and eclipse your current income. People are SO attracted to social marketing companies right now because of that freedom and flexibility. The huge trend right now is that everything is online! Be sure your company is internet-based so you can have the flexibility to run your business from your smartphone, from anywhere in the world. Ever hear of the cloud?
