Into today's competitive business climate selecting the right business opportunity can be a challenge for those that want to work from home. However, you can significantly narrow the choices simply by thinking about what kinds of problems you can help people solve. What are consumers currently looking for and can you provide it and make a profit at the same time?

This is important because choosing the right product to sell online is one of the most critical stages when launch a home business. If you choose the wrong product you will spend a lot time, effort and money for naught. You don't want to begin any business by losing money. Don't get me wrong, you'll have to invest money when you get started, but you don't want to lose money and you don't want to ruin your reputation on something that's inferior or worse yet, a scam.

Think about it from a buyer's perspective. Would you want to purchase something that promises to help you accomplish something only to learn that it doesn't work? Here are few tips you should consider when looking for home business opportunities.

Will the product add value to your customers?

When you're working from home your reputation is the only thing you have and you need to be able to maintain people's trust. If a particular product looks promising by reading the sales page, but you know it is not worth the investment, don't promote it no matter how badly you need money.

To get beyond this, look for reviews of the product. What are other people saying?

How many people have written bad reviews? When you're performing this kind of research, keep in mind that there are always people that will write a bad review just because of buyer's remorse. But if you find a slew of bad reviews, that's a good indication for you to stay away from it.

Would you buy product yourself?

Most professional affiliate marketers will tell you to purchase a product before you promote it so you can test its effectiveness and quality. However, if you're just starting out you may not want to purchase a product that costs more than one-hundred dollars.

If you purchase a product you plan to promote, remember that most digital products offer a money-back guarantee that's usually good for 30 or 60 days, so you can get your money back if it's not what you expected it to be. Don't accept any business opportunities that don't offer a money back guarantee or you may end up losing money.

What's the conversion rate?

The higher the conversion rate of a product the easier it'll be for you to sell. Look at the company's website and landing page. Is it attractive? Is there a solid call to action? Does it have professional graphics and is the copy writing done professionally?

A product that easily coverts at four percent means that you will make four sales for every one-hundred people you send to the landing page. If the conversation rate is lower than two percent don't waste your time because you'll have to generate a lot more traffic to make a decent profit.

Finally, when looking for home business opportunities make sure there are other people already making money with it. You don't want to be the first one to 'test the waters' because if it doesn't sell, you'll simply waste your time and marketing efforts.
