“Get rich quick!” “Make thousands of dollars a month in your pajamas!” We’ve all seen advertisements online and on television for different ways to earn money from the comfort of your own home. Back before the fox said “Ringy-ding-ding,” he starred in several commercials advertising those exact opportunities.
However, when you started looking through the different work-at-home opportunities, you probably discovered it was difficult to find a legitimate opportunity to work from home. Scams and schemes run rampant among the work-at-home industry. So, how can you tell the real job from the fake one?
- What kind of income potential do they advertise? The average person will never earn as much as a Hollywood movie star. Sorry, but it’s true. If the job is offering an outlandish amount of money, it’s probably too good to be true.
- What do their online reviews have to say about the company and its leaders? Bad online reviews may not mean everything, but they can potentially point to a problem. Do a quick Google search of the company you’re thinking of working for – if you see lots of complaints about not getting paid for services rendered or not providing products purchased, you will probably want to proceed with caution.
- What does the Better Business Bureau have to say about the company? A bad BBB report isn’t necessarily the “kiss-of-death” for a company, but it can certainly signal a large underlying problem. Read through any complaints that have been filed against the company through the BBB before determining if you want to get involved with them.
- How much do they want you to pay them before they give you a job? Some legitimate companies, such as Scentsy, do require you to pay a certain amount up front in order to purchase the sales kit. However, if there are no products to be sold, you would be right to question the need to pay a company to work for them. After all, isn’t the point of working to receive money?
- What does your heart say? After thoroughly researching the potential company, does it seem like a good idea to work for them? If so, then sign up right away! Otherwise, you may wish to look elsewhere for a work-at-home opportunity.
