Why Would You Start an Online Business

Aug 17, 2007
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 where ever they choose and have a ton of spare time to spend with their family, friends and simply do things they love to do.

Does this sound like something you would like to be doing? Of course it is!

Here are some of the main reasons most people decide to start an online business:

- It takes very little money to start

Unlike an offline business, 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 bought for under $100!

- You choose when you work

Who says you must work from 9 to 5 everyday? 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 are your own boss!

- Work from the comfort of your own home

Where you put your computer is where you will be working! And since you're going to be working from home, you will 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 for home. That means you will 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 three feet. 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.

- No need to work 8 hours a days every single day

Once you can automate your Internet Business in some way, you can use the time you saved to start another Internet Business, improve your existing business, or spend anyhow you like. You just spend the time online checking your mail religiously, promoting and expanding your business, all in front of your computer. And there is absolutely no need to spend even more than four hours online.

- Spend more time with family and friends

Owning an Internet Business gives you the privilege to have more time to spend with your family, or watch your children grow up. This is what most busy parents crave for. If you are one of them, then you will do well to seriously consider starting an Internet Business.

- Your online business can be all about your hobbies and passions

Now, 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 businesses of any kind.

- Online businesses have very little expenses

Believe it or not, some Internet Businesses can be set up and running at zero cost, if not very low. Other Internet Businesses can run with monthly operational expenses so low that they are negligible!

- You can have more than 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. 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 worldly 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 will be 1.07 billion in 2005. Now, is there any doubt that a 1.07 billion user pool is a very attractive target given the leverage you have on the Internet?

Given all the wonderful reasons for starting your own Internet Business, I am sure that by now you have already made up your mind whether starting an Internet Business is for you.
