When you are looking for a Home Based Business Opportunity one of the choices you will have to make is High Ticket Item or Low Ticket Item? There are definite advantages to each.
The first difference between the two is going to be Start Up Costs. Generally speaking, in Network and Internet Marketing you buy the product to buy into the business. There are a lot of free, inexpensive and very expensive opportunities for you to find online. The less expensive the product (or Startup Cost) the longer it will take you to earn a significant income. If your product/opportunity only costs $5 or $10 to buy into, you are going to need to sign up a lot of distributors to make a decent living. Whereas if you buy into a High Ticket opportunity, you will have the potential to earn very good money from your first few sales.
Of course there are other factors at play here, including the Compensation Plan, the popularity of the product and the way you choose to market the product/opportunity.
For instance, I recently reviewed the Abunza opportunity. This is a fairly High-Ticket item, $997, with an attractive compensation plan. You get 100% commission ($997) from your direct sales and $250 for each sale from your team. I've also reviewed the Reverse Funnel System (Global Resorts Network) opportunity. The compensation plan here is extremely attractive, paying you $1,000 per direct sale And $1,000 per sale from your team. These opportunities offer the chance of large profits much faster than a low ticket opportunity.
From a Marketing standpoint, there are definite advantages to High Ticket. When you think about the effort you are going to put into marketing your business, remember the return on your time and monetary investment you are looking for. In most cases when you commit yourself to building your business, you are going to spend about the same amount of time promoting your Low Cost Opportunity as you will the High Cost Opportunity. Sure, more people may sign up for the low cost venture, but will it be enough to offset the significantly lower commissions?
When you weigh the pros and cons of each side of the argument I think you'll get a much better return on your time and money with a High Ticket opportunity.
