Online Home Business Classifieds
- Which Are Legit?
When poring over online classified ads, you cannot not help but wonder which ones are actually legitimate, let alone which ones are what you're seeking in trying to get a home business career going. You have to develop a sort of sixth sense in considering and acting on the home business classifieds that will suit your specific needs.
An example of deceptive online advertisements are those with pictures of supposedly single women waiting for you (it doesn't matter if you are female), and who are just a mouse click away. You can often find these pages just by randomly clicking on a link from whatever website you're currently surfing.
And then there are the MLM opportunities, or the multi-level marketing opportunities, that profess to give you the formula on how to get rich. There is a certain pattern to these MLM advertisements. They will not immediately provide you with details of their business, and seek to draw you in by promises of quick cash with little effort. In order to appear legitimate, they cite their parent company's massive earnings and financial stability, supposedly ensuring you that they've got enough money to make you rich. And when they do present their products (which you would have to pay for), you find out that the means by which you're supposed to make oodles of cash has nothing to do with the selling per se of these products, but rather with recruiting a bunch of other sorry suckers to make an 'investment.
But there are those companies which do have a rational scheme of money making. Google, for instance, does not claim anything out of the ordinary when presenting the manner by which you are paid each time someone clicks on the specially placed ads on your website. You only get paid by how much traffic there is on your website, and by how many people are curious enough to click on the Google Adsense links.
An established 'buy & sell' website such as eBay has a long - for the internet, that is - history of success, wherein actual products and services are purchased. The income you make is commensurate to your ability to sell products that are of value to other eBayers.
You can very well make a living through Google Adsense or eBay, and a host of other legitimate sites, but this all depends on providing people what they want. With Google Adsense, you would need a thousand surfers who click on the Adsense links before making a hundred dollars. Naturally, not any blogger can get this amount of traffic. It is those people who say something that many readers like to know or are able to identify with, that get the thousands of views. Some of these readers would for some reason be drawn to the link to the right of your page, advertising so and so, and this is how you can make money. It is hardly a fail safe plan to put up Adsense, but with the right message, it may just work for you. If it does, you can fulfill your dream of working in your underwear, simply writing on your blog every so often.
Even the advertisements as found in Google Adsense should not be free from suspicion. Any get rich quick scheme should be taken with a grain of salt.
You will have to take extra caution when looking for a business opportunity online. Don't let the scams scare you off. There are some legitimate offers out there, from people who really need a valuable service that perhaps only you can provide.
Online classifieds are not that different from the classified ads of a regular newspaper. You should know when something is too good to be true.
Always remember when looking through home business classifieds that no matter what offer you find, people are still people who do not normally give out cash at hand. Money has to be earned. Even if you could make money off these schemes that promise too much but in reality merely rip other people off, what kind of career would that be? Money ought to still be earned through diligence and entrepreneurial insight. No amount of technology will ever change that.
