If you are planning an offline business, you should first think about finance, probably a significant amount of money depending on the type of business. There would be premises, actions or raw materials, how many staff you would need, salary structure, insurance, health and safety, etc. The list passes and activates.
This takes a certain type of planning to which some people have good ability. It also requires many physical and financial resources that are often enough beyond most of us.
When taking into account an Internet company, many resources are severely reduced or not needed. There is no need for premises, just a rudimentary office installed in a small space of your home, even in your garden shed as far from the television you can get. The amount of the required finances is considerably reduced, as well as the requirements of staff, insurance, health and safety, etc.
All this would seem to make an absolutely no obvious when it comes to choosing between offline and online business. Many skills are similar, but resource requirements are very different. Offline is equivalent to expensive configuration and maintenance costs, online is equal to a very low and very inexpensive installation.
Of course, an online business can increase at a point where assistants and technical expertise should be used unless you want to be linked to a computer for 24 hours a day, but at that time, the Company will have generated enough benefits to cover the increased costs.
A major reason that prevents many people from starting an online business is fear. The fear of the Internet itself, the fear of failure and the immense doubt of oneself that holds many people. There is also the widely considered belief that online businesses are full of trust trucks and that all online training courses will cost a lot of money, but give a very little back.
The fact is that there are many sneaky people as sneaky and many non-value information available to reckless Internet, but there are also many ways to verify the identification information of online advertisers. In fact, it is almost essential that entrepreneurs do what is usually not like “reasonable diligence” before committing to buy anything online. A simple search in Google or other search engines will usually reveal many critics of well-known products and people behind the scenes!
As long as we do not deal with people or well-known or recommended companies, the Internet is a perfectly safe place to be in business.
To start an online business, for the most part, there are only three basic elements. First, a domain name that gives an identity and online costs generally less than $ 10 a year. Many online companies sell domain names and are all very similar. Shop for the best offer. Then build or purchase a website or configure a simple Squeeze page. This can be done virtually free of charge or you can pay someone in the case, for which the price can vary savagely and requires serious reflection. Once one has a website, an accommodation account is required to put it online and visible in the world. Accommodation companies, again, there are many, usually charge about 10 dollars a month.
Now you are in business and when you attract visitors (called traffic) on your website, you are now able to sell. It’s a very simplified way to create a business in today’s Internet. Naturally, computer skills must be learned above all that is possible, but anyone with basic computer training should have few problems with them.
