How old is company? - a company that is completely new is susceptible to disappearing from radar. Be cautious of businesses claiming to be in pre-launch for 2 reasons. 1. that means they are new and may have no idea what they are doing and 2. these companies always claim to be in pre-launch even though they launched (started doing business) months ago. Of course every great company was new once so there are times when a new company can be a great opportunity. Check to see what word is, do some searches and try to find out what people are saying about company and about leaders. If leadership is good than you maybe onto a good thing.
How experienced is leadership? - once or twice a year a new company will come on scene and people will be climbing over each other to come on board. The reason is usually because it is another brain child of a team with a proven record of success. They have experience to get it right from start.
Does company provide training? - two pages about how to post free classifieds is not training (that was extent of it on one of earliest companies I joined). Training should be comprehensive, covering how to advertise, where to advertise, what to say in your advertisement, where to find business, how to talk to people, how to stay motivated, how to increase your business, how to train new team members and more. Very importantly it should include at least weekly phone conferences from company experts and leaders for you to learn how they do it and have your questions answered.
Will you get adequate support? - if you have questions or concerns it's nice to know that there is someone to answer them. The top notch businesses will actually have a support department available to answer any questions you may have.
If you find a business meeting all these criteria then you are off to a good start. But remember this is only first step in a longer haul. You must have persistence if you are going to make it.
Keep learning, keep at it and don't give up.
