7 Reasons to Start Your Business Online

Aug 17, 2007
There are many reasons to start an online business, no matter you want to make a living off the internet or just want to create a second stream of income; internet would be one of the best choices. Why? Here are the reasons:

1. Low Startup Capital
I'm not saying NO capital at all, but very LOW capital that is required to start making money online. When comparing with traditional businesses, costs involved in an online business are significantly lesser. You don't need to pay rent, you don't need to pay for office equipments (just use the computer you are already using), and you don't have to hire a lot of staff to start your online business either.

2. Minimal Overhead Costs
Other than your Internet connection fees, hosting fees and a couple of other miscellaneous fees, you practically do not have anything else like a traditional business do.

3. Online Business is Flexible
This is a crucial advantage over traditional business; most of us are too lazy to stick to the strict office hour that applies to most office jobs. Nobody cares if you wake up in the middle of the night to work and sleep late the next day, or you can take a week off from work and go on a vacation at any time of the year.

4. Mobility
You can operate your business wherever you want as long as you have an internet connection there. It can be your bedroom, toilet, Hawaii, Rio de Janeiro or Caribbean, it doesn't matter.

5. Global Market
Internet has no boundaries, cultural or territorial. More and more people are getting to the internet for a variety of reasons from sourcing for information to shopping online. This is indeed one of the fastest growing markets in the world today.

6. Automation
If you want to make money but don't want to work 8 hours a day 5 days a week, internet is for you. The level of automation provided by software cannot be found anywhere else. Leveraging on these technologies helps you to put more time on planning your online business instead of doing routine technical works every day.

7. Netrepreneurship
That means you are your own boss, you are an internet entrepreneur. How much you make and what you do is entirely your decision. Your destiny is in your hands! The best part is nobody tells you what time to wake up on a Monday morning! (I'm sure you love this.)
