With the Internet pervading the world landscape, the number of online business opportunities has multiplied over the past several years. With so many online business opportunities available, how can one effectively distinguish the good ones from the bad ones? There are some simple steps one can take to properly identify a legitimate opportunity. You can uncover the information you need in very little time.

The Better Business Bureau monitors businesses and their practices and does a good portion of the research for us. If you come across an opportunity, look to see how well documented the company is with specific sources. The Better Business Bureau is an excellent barometer to use when assessing the validity and potential of a home business opportunity.

Additional Sources When Researching Online Business Opportunities

There are a number of publications out there that scrutinize businesses, both their strengths and weaknesses. For those entrepreneurs who would like to run a business from their homes, there are two essential publications you should add to your library--Entrepreneur Magazine and Home Business Magazine. These two excellent magazines are entertaining yet vital resources for those looking at new online business opportunities.

Forbes Magazine and Inc. Magazine are also wonderfully informative resources. Forbes Magazine primarily tracks publicly help companies whereas Inc. Magazine tracks privately held companies in North America. Which companies are growing and which ones are dying? Which ones are profitable and which companies are barely treading water? These magazines can help answer those questions.
