Introduction To Online Business 1-2-3
As you read these words, there are millions of people making a full-time income on the internet, working part-time hours from the comfort of their own home. These people set their own working hours, live wherever they choose to live and have a ton of spare time (and money) to spend with their family and friends, simply doing things they love to do.
Does this sound like something you would like to be doing?
Well, rest assured, you’ve made the right decision if you would… Because you’re about to learn everything you need to know to get started on your internet business and be pointed in the right direction towards online business success.
In this guide, you’ll not only learn the basics to starting an internet business but you’ll also learn about the many different online business models you can choose.
You can even analyze over 50 successful online businesses which you can then imitate!
But before we get started, just so you’re as excited as I am about doing business online.
Here are some of the main reasons most people decide to start an online business:
• It takes very little money to start
Unlike a business in the “real world”, an online business DOES NOT need a lot of start up money. All you need is an idea, a domain name, internet access and hosting…all of which can be obtained for very little indeed.
• You choose when you work
Who says you must work from 9 to 5 everyday? People who are NOT Internet Business owners!
The Internet Business is the biggest proof why the statement “working from 9 to 5” is no longer true. With an Internet Business, you don’t have to wake up in the wee hours of the morning so that you can get to work by 9am anymore. You can start work at anytime since you’re your own boss!
• Work from the comfort of your own home
Where you put your computer is where you’ll be working! And since you’re going to be working from home, you’ll be saving at least two hours of your time each day by not having to travel to and from your work place – during rush hours when everybody else is going to work or heading home.
That means you’ll be saving at least 730 hours a year! Wouldn’t you shudder at the thought of wasting 730 hours a year doing nothing productive?
• With the internet, the whole world is your market!
By sitting in front of the computer, everyone in the world is now within your reach. You leverage on free or low-cost software and hardware and the Internet Infrastructure, all of which when combined will give you leveraging power that far exceeds any conventional business, allowing you to achieve more and more with less and less work!
• You can fully automate your online business
If properly set up, some Internet Business models can be fully automated. I have a number of fully automated income streams at present.
• No need to work 8 hours a days every single day
Once you’ve automated your Internet Business in some way, you can use the time you save to start other income streams, improve your existing business, or however you like.
You just spend the time online checking your e-mail, promoting and expanding your business – all in front of your computer. And there’s absolutely no need to spend even more than four hours online.
• Spend more time with family and friends
Owning an Internet Business allows you to spend more time with your family, or watch your children grow up. This is what most busy parents crave for.
If you’re one of them, then you’ll do well to seriously consider starting an Internet Business.
• Your online business can be all about your hobbies and passions
And this is my favorite reason for anybody wanting to start an Internet Business! The Internet Business allows your passion and dream to come to life, which is also the most important component of any businesses.
• Online businesses have very little expenses
Believe it or not, some Internet Businesses can be set up and running at zero cost, if not a very low cost. Other Internet Businesses can be run with monthly operational expenses so low that they’re negligible!
• You can have more that one!
Since the cost of setting up and running an Internet Business is so low, and you can automate their operations, you can operate multiple Internet Businesses as a one-person Internet Business owner. You don’t need to hire employees since your Internet Business system is doing most of the job, if not all, for you. It works 24/7 for you. It won’t call in sick. It won’t give any excuses. And it definitely won’t blame you if it ever had problems!
• The internet is a huge market (the whole world) and it’s getting bigger as you read these words
According to the Computer Industry Almanac, there were 934 million Internet users up to September 2004; and there will be 1.07 billion in this year.
Now, is there any doubt that a 934 million-user pool is a very attractive target given the leverage you have on the Internet?
Given all the wonderful reasons for starting your very own Internet Business, I’m sure that by now you have already made up your mind whether starting an Internet Business is for you…
