If you’ve ever seen an advertisement for a 900-number business, you were probably led to believe that they are the latest and greatest home-based business opportunity available. They’ve been endorsed by online and offline marketers like Don Lapre and even Dionne Warwick.

If you’ve ever watched an infomercial for a 900-number business, you were probably inticed by it as most people are. They will lead you to believe you will become a millionaire overnight. This is a perfect example of something that is too good to be true.

As with any home-based business, you will need to make some kind of investment to begin. And in order to advertise a 900-number, you need to do so on T.V. I don’t think I need to give you a lengthy explanation of how much advertising on television will cost you. The advertising you see on television is supported by large companies with million dollar advertising budgets that you just don’t have.

The cost for television ads, coupled with many other facets of 900-number businesses, makes it very difficult to get one off the ground. Besides being difficult and costly, it is most likely impossible to be successful trying to start up a 900-number business. You’d be much better off involving yourself with direct, network or internet marketing.
