A Unique International Business Opportunity

When a fledgling entrepreneur considers venturing into an
international business opportunity and decides to research
the available opportunities, perhaps using Google or one of
the popular search engines, very little information is to
be found. In fact the term “business opportunity” yields
approximately 250 thousand search results, “home business
opportunity” yields approximately seventy thousand search
results, “network marketing business opportunity” yields
slightly over one thousand results and “international
business opportunity” is just about equal to “network
marketing” in terms of search results.

It’s obvious that
there are hundreds of thousands of individuals interested
in a “business opportunity”; however, by far the majority
limit themselves to considering more conventional or
perhaps “vague” opportunities. This article will propose a
broader look at available opportunities and in fact will
consider a unique, if not compelling look at an
international business opportunity and more specifically a
generalized network marketing international business
opportunity.

Before delving into international business opportunity
specifics, let’s take a look at the cultural and
technological developments that have come about in the past
15 to 20 years that make it possible, and perhaps even
desirable, to consider a more global view when approaching
a new business opportunity. Tremendous strides in
communications technology brought about in a large measure
by the development and astronomical growth of the Internet
have made instantaneous communications with a prospect,
client or business associate not only simple but very
inexpensive. The advent of email, audio/video conferencing,
and VOIP (voice over internet protocol) phones have made it
as easy to contact the person next door, as the one down
the block, in the next state or on the next continent .

Indeed because of these strides in technology it is
possible to combine the “business opportunity”, the “home
business opportunity”, the “network marketing business
opportunity”, and an the “international business
opportunity” into one all encompassing global business that
is operated out of a home office with a computer and broad
band internet connection with little else needed. To be
entirely correct, there are already a small number of
leading edge companies that are operating in just this
manner with all of the tools in place to operate
nationally, internationally or globally.

While it is not the intent of this article to make specific
international business opportunity recommendations,
consider as an example a business using a model of
operation commonly referred to as a Funded Proposal or a
Generic Funded Sponsoring Franchise System. The Funded
Proposal, in a pure sense, consists of three parts: the
Funded Proposal, secondary sales, and a primary business
for long term wealth generation. Many businesses using this
model, market an information product such as an ebook,
course, or seminar that they sell to first qualify
prospects and to generate income to fund their future
advertising in building their business.

The secondary sales, sometimes referred to as back-end
sales, can be products, services, or tools that are an
integral and fundamental part of the operation of the
business as well as to further enhance the income generated
by the business. It’s possible that a break-even or
slightly profitable position can be achieved via the
secondary or back-end sales.

Obviously, the primary business is the most crucial part of
the international business opportunity and must be selected
with great care. There a number of factors that must be
considered carefully. These include: 1. The Company must
have unique products that serve multiple different market
categories and appeal to the masses. 2. The company must be
stable, must have been in business for a minimum of 15 to
20 years, and have the ability to generate long-term sales
and income. 3. It must have a system that is simple and
duplicatable for product marketing and delivery. 4. The
Company management must have been successful business
leaders and have a vision for future growth. 5. The Company
must be global. 6. It must payout at least 50% of sales,
offer unlimited depth within the compensation plan and must
offer meaningful Fast Start Bonuses. 7. They must give back
globally and have a vision of making an impact on the world
in a positive manner.

In conclusion, given the correct business model along with
a well thought though plan or vision for success, the
extraordinary tools that are available today and with
plenty of hard work, it is entirely possible to start a
successful business with a minimal investment. That is not
to say that there will not be obstacles and disappointments
along the way, but regardless of the choice, whether it be
restricted to one’s home town, whether it be a network
marketing business opportunity, a home business
opportunity, or an international business opportunity
there’s little doubt that one exists which will fit your
desires and expertise, but make sure that you do your
research and that your selection is based on a sound
business model and well thought out plan.
