Ideally one cannot ignore the importance of good reputation. When determining the legitimacy of a program, it is essential that you search the company of your interest by taking into perspective the opinions of others. This can be done by a simple Google search with the name of the company, along with words such as scams, complaints etc. Moreover, you can get in touch with customers or other employees (current and former) of that company. By spending proper time on research, you are bound to get the desired information. People who have been satisfied with the program may have posted testimonials or comments about its authenticity.
Product, services and payment plans
When looking for an honest program, it is important that you tap into the products and services a company has to offer and gauge its overall quality. Therefore before you sign up for a program, it is important that you search for the product and service, and test it for yourself. Once, you feel that the selling material is good quality; you will be prepared to associate yourself with it and market it effectively.
On top of that, legit companies will have a proper or transparent payment method where part of your commission will be paid in advance or immediately after the delivery of a product. Having a sound payment plan will prove vital in the final consideration.
Guidance/ Support Structure
Legit programs may provide a quick training period or guidance on how the product will be sold to the customers. As their success will be based upon your ability and marketing skills to sell their product, they will have a support structure in place in order to facilitate and assist you.
