This really makes so much more sense than what most
inexperienced people might figure. They likely would pick
something they themselves like or buy for various reasons –
and that can make sense on several levels as well. However
the crux of the matter is that we might not be atypical and
something we like so much may not have much appeal to anyone
else. So it may become an atmosphere where you try to

to research the companies and find out all the particulars
that are important to your decision-making process and of
course for your business in the long-run. Every website
that you might link to from the search results would likely
have ‘contact’ or ‘support’ information so that you
could ask questions directly or request further details from
It might work real well to create a spreadsheet or some kind
of table (grids) document so that you could visually compare
all the various things about the companies and products –
the product features and cost, and the company’s
compensation plan/commission structure, etc.
Remember to consider the ‘multiple streams of income’
concept for your business – maybe consider having some
tangible products, possibly some programs where you can make
