hearing the word “business”, immediately this mental image
springs to mind: a big or small company with offices, staff,
hierarchies, intrigue and a strict dress code. However, technological
progress comes in order to disrupt that image on its head, proving
that everyone can manage a company without any special skills, any
...hereditary knack for business or any expertise in marketing.
Ultimately, the only ingredients required are creativity and
enthusiasm. In the immense Internet world, you will find a lot of
one-person companies without any facilities and unnecessary expenses.
the expenses, did you know that none of the usual offline business
stuff is needed? Forget the rents, the licenses, the staff, and all
these hassles. Only one person is enough to make something good
happen and there is no need to find any co-founders in order to share
the expenses and the shares. Of course, there are a lot of startups
that have more than one founders, as this creates a union of
different creative minds and this does not happen just because there
is a need to divide the labor. In most of the cases, though, the only
expense an online business requires is the equipment for the creation
of the products and services. If you wanted to have the cutting edge
in your equipment, now you can feel free to do so.
an online business goes ...everywhere and can be carried with you.
You definitely face this nightmare, which is very common in the
traditional offline businesses: if you are absent for a few days…
God help you! In many cases, you would lose touch with the company
matters, you would only have the phone as a convenient means to keep
up-to-date, and when you returned, there was too much stuff on your
plate and unread messages, along with the ensuing panic, waiting for
you! Thankfully, this situation belongs to the past, as you can
always keep with your business stuff through various means, such as
smartphones and laptops. Furthermore, if you intend to stay away for
a few ideas, you can always notify your customers through your
website and social media, so that you can communicate with them after
your return without feeling overwhelmed and having too many duties
the best part? You can be famous worldwide! A typical offline
business was usually known only in the area it was established in,
and expanding its reputation further than that could be tiring and
time-consuming. In many cases, this was not usually achieved.
Furthermore, it would be impossible for a business to be known in the
entire country, especially if there was a strong competition in the
industry. However, this is much easier to happen in online
businesses, as the geographical obstacle is easily overcome and you
can promote them to a wider audience through the most popular social
networks, starting from your friends. Despite the fact that the
competition is way larger than in the past, there is always a place
for everyone, and your business is no exception. You never know who
will get interested in your work!
do you need anything more to be persuaded to start your online
business ...yesterday? You will just need an idea, as crazy as it may
seem, and see how it goes. Whatever the risks and losses there may
be, online businesses do not cause as devastating upheavals when they
close as an offline business, a phenomenon very common during the
recession, especially in the family ones. You have nothing to lose,
but everything to gain, such as your independence, a safety net
against the ups and downs of the job market. Who knows, you may
contribute to the solution by setting up job offers!
