How can I find a list of home business consultants in my area?

I am looking into starting a home business and I have narrowed a few down. I would like to see how many consultants are in my area to see if the market is oversaturated.

  • Go to the website of the companies that you are looking into. Most if not all have a tab to help you find a consultant in your area. You type in your city / town or zip code and it will give you a list of consultants nearest you. Usually though, you will find that even if there were several of company A on your block and you wanted to be a consultant for that company, if you have the drive you can still be successful in it. Some consultants decide it's not for them and quit, some retire, and some are on the books simply so they can get the discount. Good luck with whatever you decide on! : )

  • You would most likely have to contact the companies individually and let them know you need to or want to find local consultants and see if they can give you the information... SOME companies have a "search" on their site so you can find locals too, but not all.

  • Just an fyi for you, when you do search by zip code, not all reps may be listed, some companies like for their reps to reach a certain criteria in order for them to show by zip. I hope this makes sense.

  • Tiffany237 is right....for example with Avon, you may see 6+ reps in the zip code pop up, but those are just ones who pay for the eRep site. When I was an assistant to my District Manager my zip code search showed 8 reps, including myself, however there were over 50 reps in my zip code alone

  • Just ask the person trying to sign you up for that company to give you a list.

  • All I wanted was to Stay at home and raise my Own Children...I was
    totally shocked at all the scams on the Internet that were targeting
    people like me.

    I spent months looking, and did pay some "fees" to find out

    about legitimate work from home. None of them were able to offer
    anything more than a few surveys for pay, crafts to assemble, or
    mystery shopping (all of which were nothing more than some spare
    change...not an income).

    I am very excited to now Own my own Home Business.

    I am working at my own pace and I have met and Teamed up with some
    Awesome Mothers and others...that have the same Goals as I DO!

    I would love to share this opportunity with you. Just visit my
    website, and I will contact you with the details.
