Searching for a home business opportunity can be tedious. Everyone is eager to share their business opportunity with you. Many are well meaning, but at the end of the day, it means more to their bottom line than it does for you to find the right business for you.
When investigating companies to represent in direct selling or affiliate marketing, the website Npros.com is useful to newbies and pros. Npros.com has been around for over 10 years. This online website touts itself at ďthe longest running and most comprehensive resource and index of home based business opportunities on the InternetĒ and includes information on over 1,300 home based businesses.
Their directory listings are complete and organized by a number of categories. It is thorough and if you donít know where to start it will be fun researching all the opportunities that are out there. Each company listing includes:
- a comprehensive review of when the company launched
- how their product or service works
- how hostesses earn rewards from parties
- what the enrollment options are
- how much the starter kit costs
- the compensation plan for their consultants
- the company website link
- a company overview (the companyís contact information)
- the company owners, executives and executive consultants
In addition, when reviewing a company profile in their directory, their site pulls in additional information from their membership (reps / consultants advertising on their site), products and product reviews, events and meetings and news. The news is the highlight addition to this area as if anything is going on directly related to the company, it is covered by Npros.com and shared on the company profile page. The other features appear to be sponsored advertisements, members who pay for the privilege to post their business information.
You donít have to be a member to sign up for email alerts from their site either. As an email subscriber you can receive email alerts when there is news added or new companies have been added.
Unfortunately, the profiles donít appear dated so it is questionable if the enrollment options and compensation plans are up-to-date. Since the news section is up-to-date and new companies are listed, it seems someone manages the site regularly. If you find a company you are interested in, visit their website and check out their monthly sign-up offers and review the compensation plan.
Npros.com may seem impersonal, but it has longevity and is on top of the home based business industry.
