In my opinion, giving you what I feel is the absolute best honest reliable home-based
business would be like choosing my favorite kid.
There are a lot of home-based business opportunities that are honest and they are reliable.
Based on that I am going to write this article around concepts and ideas. I will include some links to various home-based business opportunities where it makes sense. In the end, I will offer you some free training from a program I promote in the affiliate marketing business model to help you identify some of these businesses.
Business Opportunity or Business Model
There is a difference between a business opportunity and a business model. Network marketing is a business model. Amway is a business opportunity.
Affiliate marketing is a business model. Google AdSense is a business opportunity in the form of an affiliate program.
You can choose to start your home-based business from a specific opportunity or you can choose to get in the business model and develop your business around that.
Let me give you another example. Many home-based businesses are service-oriented.
Examples would be daycare, hair care, baking cakes, and so on. Other home-based businesses start at home and go out into the marketplace such as an HVAC contractor, mowing lawns, painting houses, and so on.
These are business models that people turn into their own home-based business. Business opportunities arise in a number of different ways as we mentioned with network marketing for example. The opportunity is more in the form of a business in a box and you join that opportunity and build your own business from it.
Business For Home is a great website and newsletter that gets into the direct sales business model, It talks about literally hundreds of different business opportunities. I certainly would suggest you look at that if you’re in the market for an honest reliable home-based business opportunity.
Is Longevity Important?
It could be. There are a lot of shady business opportunities available thanks to the Internet.
I know I feel a little more comfortable when I’m looking at a business opportunity that has a proven track record. There are many business opportunities that have been around for 10, 20, 30, even over 50 years.
Even on the Internet, today opportunities such as becoming an Amazon affiliate have been available for over 20 years now. Google AdSense has had their affiliate program for over 15 years.
Other opportunities that use resources such as a hosting company like Go Daddy tied with blog building platforms, such as Word Press, has been around for 10 to 15 years as well.
I’m not saying don’t look at opportunities that are new. Wouldn’t it have nice to buy stock in Walmart back in the 1970s? I see James Woods on Twitter and people ask him why he is not in movies anymore. His answer? “I bought Apple stock in the 80’s” 🙂
When you are looking for a reliable home-based business, longevity provides with peace of mind. Let me say this, if you’re willing to take a risk, never be willing to invest more into an opportunity than you’re willing to lose because, in business as in life, there is no such thing as a sure thing.
What Is A Reliable Home Business
Businesses that solve a problem are more reliable if they are in an evergreen market as opposed to a sunset market. An evergreen market has been around and will be around.
Kids going to college is an evergreen market. Stop sweating is an evergreen market. Making more money is an evergreen market. Retirement is an evergreen market.
Starting a home business is an evergreen market that gives you a real shot at having a reliable long term business. Starting your own DVD rental store is a sunset market. Did you know there is only one Blockbuster video store left in the whole world?
One of the reasons Amway has lasted for over 50 years is their primary product line is built around basic commodity items. These are items that you use up and need to re-order. Cleaning products, vitamins, laundry soap, nutritional supplements, and on and on we can go.
Let me give you another example. I promote the Wealthy Affiliate training program.
This is a very reliable program because it offers training for people on how to start their own affiliate marketing business. Affiliate marketing as an industry that been around for over 20 years and is only going to grow and grow.
Virtually every niche in the world has an affiliate program you can join. The problem is when people join an affiliate program they still need to learn how to promote the program.
This is why a training program such as Wealthy Affiliate has continued to thrive now for many years. It is what I would consider being a reliable product to promote as well as a reliable home business in an evergreen market.
Conclusion On My Reliable Home Based Business
There is no right or wrong answer as it pertains to a home-based business that is honest and reliable. However, there are certain things to keep in mind as we discussed in this article.
For example, a business model such as drop shipping with Amazon or eBay is extremely reliable. The question is, would they be the type of home-based business you would want to be in?
The same thing is true with all different kinds of business models such as affiliate marketing, email marketing, get paid to programs, blogging, and on and on I can go. Put some time in and do your due diligence.
There’s a lot of great opportunities out there and a lot of great home-based businesses that are reliable and honest as well.
