So you are ready to get into a home business but need to make the right decision. The first factor is finding a home business with low membership fees and no autoshipments.
Home Business Options
Have you been wondering about starting your own home business? Not sure where to start or questions to ask? There are many home business options out there and things you need to look for are:
- Membership fees
- Required autoshipments
- Shipping charges
- Monthly quotas
- Website fees
- Available training
- Restrictions on selling
- Restrictions on advertising
- Available countries to sell in
- Catalogue prices and changes
- Product line-up and demand
- History and success of company
Which Home Business is Good
Obviously a home business is good when it fits your needs. It makes sense to find one that has the lowest signup fee, no autoshipments and a good product lineup.
First and foremost though - you have to be behind the products. If you don't believe in the products you will have a harder time selling them - Business 101! You should also choose a company with a good history and one which is stable, secure and growing even in tough times.
Consider any 'hidden' charges. Companies that make you subscribe to autoshipments can be very pricey and make you your best customer! Things like paying for websites, shipping charges or having to buy catalogues every 2 weeks will also dip into your profits.
A reputable business is one that provides you with free training and helps you to succeed. They should have a good history and offer in-demand products with a satisfaction guarantee or easy money-back policy. A company that stands behind it's products is a company you can trust and your customers can trust.
You also want to know how you can sell these products. Are there any restrictions on how or where you can sell them or promote them? Can you sell at trade shows and markets, at home parties, directly, online, in certain geographic areas? How can you advertise and are there restrictions to the freedom you have to promoting your business?

Which Home Business is Right for You
The most important thing you will do as you research home business options is to see what works for you!
Look at your availability - how much time will you have to do this business, how much money will you invest in products, social media design, doing trade shows etc.
Do you like the products and believe in them? Do you also use them yourself because a membership also allows you to buy them at a discount. You can save money on your own everyday items!
Will the compensation plan work for you and does the business model allow you to grow your business over time and earn the income you are looking for?
