The answer is...sometimes!
Choosing a legitimate, reliable company that you would be proud to be linked to is an important part of starting your 'work from home' journey. One of the organizations that future business builders turn to is the BBB or Better Business Bureau which ensures that it's US and Canadian members maintain standards of trust in their dealings with the public. So is it possible to find work from home jobs approved by BBB, and is it a good place to look for a job?
It is very sensible to carry out due diligence when choosing, or checking out a business that you want to partner with, but you may encounter some difficulties if you decide to start by creating a short list of work from home jobs approved by BBB.
The reasons for this include:
The difficulty of searching the BBB database is that it relies on you knowing the name of the company, or having a location, which means you are restricted to a post code or a state, and therefore omitting companies that are not listed locally. If you search by business type you will need to know the type of business you are looking for. 'Work from home' is not a search category.
The BBB aims to maintain standards of trust in their dealings with the public, which is easier to measure, and control when you have a business that deals directly with the public. This is more difficult to measure, when joining a team in a network marketing company. That can mean that a company that is accredited by BBB may still have issues with Independent Associates who are not aware of these standards.
If you are uncertain about the type of business or job you want to do from home, start your search by working out what you have in mind before referring to the BBB database. Are you looking for a network marketing business, a franchise, IT work, affiliate marketing, freelance work, sales, or something else? Is there any particular business that has caught your eye? What type of business is it?
Checking out potential work from home jobs approved by BBB is certainly one way of finding out what the public have reported to an official supervisory organization, but there are many quality businesses who are not accredited by the BBB. By knowing what you want to do, talking to people you trust, and searching online for reviews and work from home forums can help you to get a better picture of what job, or business is going to work best for you.
