Anyone who is introduced to the online business world always replies with the same question.
What are the benefits associated with it?
This is where the problem comes in. It is not that there are no benefits; it is that the numbers of benefits are so many that giving a short answer leaves me unsatisfied, whereas, giving a complete reply would take a lot of time.
In an effort to find a middle way, some of the best benefits have been enumerated as under:
1) Easy and Flexible Schedule:
The biggest problem with all employees... they have to work according to the employer's schedule. There is a constant pressure to perform at all times, failure in which may lead to everyone's anger vented on you. Stress and over burdening are some of the common symptoms seen in most of the cases.
Online business provides a way out from all of these. You would be your own boss and work as and when you feel best. You may relax, sleep, dine, play, take a vacation, laze around at will and still get valuable returns if the business is flourishing.
2) New Ideas:
In the case of huge corporate, there is no say or decision making ability with the employees. All ideas are approved from the higher authorities and your job is to implement them.
This totally changes with online business wherein, you also get the opportunity to decide along with the implementation scheme. If you have money to invest, you may also hire people to do the job for you.
A secure and effective set up of online business will always pay, irrespective of whether any new inputs are provided to it. By adding new inputs and proper maintenance, the competition levels are maintained at all times.
Since there is no one above you to dictate terms, there are no scheduled filings to be done, no deadlines to be met and no tension of getting fired. If the recent recession has to be analyzed, the victims were far less in the case of online business compared to the corporate business.
4) Low initial Investment:
There is virtually no investment required compared to opening a firm in some city - maybe just the cost of an online business consulting firm. No infrastructure is required and no staff has to be employed. The only thing needed is a computer with internet connectivity. The man carrying a laptop with a wireless internet data card beside you may be a walking talking business house!
Advertising is not about banners and hand held pamphlets but Ads on the internet and links to the business website from others. Simple referrals can also do the job for many. Because there is no physical structure, there is no insurance required which further reduced the cost.
Do these benefits sound good?
There are many more in the list but as I said, including them would really take a long time and make it a very lengthy read. If given an option, online business opportunities should definitely be explored.
