Bargain Franchise Opportunities for the Newly Unemployed

We are in a recession that doesn’t appear to be getting any better, and it will not for a considerable time until these congressmen stop considering only themselves and not We the people!

Bloomington, MN, December 08, 2011 – Those without roles, folks who can only find part-time work and others who hate their jobs and are looking for a business venture, low cost franchise opportunities in 2012 like M.L.M is one of the finest opportunities today.

Why MLM over Other Categories of Business?

Why does Multi-Level Marketing have such a sullied reputation, and does it actually?

M.L.M is a financial model which has been around for decades, and many of the companies we see each day are in reality Multi Level Marketing corporations, only you simply don’t realize it. Corporations like Amway and Mary Kay certainly don’t have a bad name, they generate uncountable billions of dollars for their representatives every year and have no debt, unlike many other major companies. At the same time there are many new companies on the horizon like iWowWe, that offers a free video email feature as well as a paid video conferencing feature, as well as The Empower Network which is not technically a MLM company but instead a company that allows you to actually start making money from a blog by selling their products and retaining 100% of the commission. That is not to say there are not some bad MLM corporations around, they just don’t last long. Look at M.L.M from a practical viewpoint. Once you’ve selected an Multi-Level Marketing opportunity that interests you, you pay an one off buy-in fee, that is it.

How Much Is this Going to Cost Me?

Sometimes that is all that you will pay, is the buy-in fee these can range anywhere from under $100 to into the thousands and all depends on the company. Some MLM corporations have other programs you can join to make your business more successful faster. You get coaching, product, back office support, and occasionally leads to go with the package, in most cases you don’t have to worry about shipping, packing or any of that side of business. Start any other sort of small company and that just won’t happen. With a bricks and mortar store you have electricity bills, lease, inventory taxes, sales taxes, payroll expenses, costs of inventory, fixtures, advertizing and a whole lot more. You can always get a larger franchise if you can afford the price, but with most being over $100k the average person simply cannot afford it.

You may still need to handle a lot of those headaches plus you will pay a charge to the franchise company and a share of your profits!

Okay I’m Sold, Now What Does One Do?

Well here’s the better news.

At the most recent count there were over four thousand M.L.M business opportunities to choose from. There’s everything from jewellery, to technology, weight reduction, energy, green technologies – there’s something for everybody. If you’ve a hobby or something that you love doing, see whether there is an MLM opportunity related to it.

If you have been working in the insurance industry or banking for years and got let go, there are lots of great opportunities for you too do not squander that knowledge. Ladies who want to make some additional cash so that they can stay at home with the youngsters have tons of choices. It is not just Tupperware and cosmetics anymore there are so many different MLM opportunities it’ll make your head spin. Just do something you love, you will put more into your business if you do, and your passion won’t run out because you get bored with what you selected.

Enthusiasm is definitely an advantage for anyone in the MLM business. When you start recruiting a downline, folks will be asking you why do you look so darned satisfied all the time, and is that a new sports car?
