Six reasons why you should start an internet business

As you read these words, there are millions of people making a living out of the internet. Some of them part time and still many of them on a full time basis. Whoever is earning an income on the internet sets out their own working hours. I have an internet business that I have been running for over 1 year on a part time basis and the results are fairly good.

Here are six reasons why I think you have an internet business.

It is relatively cheap
Un like business in the real world start up costs on the internet are very low. I joined my SFI affiliate marketing program for free and spent less than us$35 to get started. This included web hosting fees and domain registration. Believe me I could not have managed to do any meaningful business with the same kind of money.

The monthly expenses are also very minimal. I currently spend about US$30 per month as running costs. This amount also includes monthly hosting fees. Compare this to a real world business say a marketing business.

You set your own working hours
The beauty with an internet business is the flexibility it offers. With the internet business you do not have to wake up early in the morning to prepare and get to work at 8am or 9am if you are full time. I set my working time for my internet business in the evening. I intend to quit my regular job when my earnings from the internet business can fully sustain my living at the moment I work on a part time basis.

I cannot imagine and wait to start running my internet business on a full time scale. I currently run my business from home and during lunch time when am free.

You work from home
Running an internet business gives you the luxury of working from the comfort of your living room. Imagine how much time you can save by avoiding being in traffic for say two hours a day to get to and from your office for 30 days. That’s an incredible 60hrs saved and can be used to improve your internet business wow.

I know that there are pro and cons for working from home but I think the pros outweigh the cons. Working from home is far cheaper and saves time. Remember where you put your computer is where your office is.

The world is your market
There is no any other business that offers you the world for your market. With internet business you have the world as your market. By sitting in from of your computer you have the world market within three feet 24/7. You leverage on your free or low cost software and hardware and 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.

Let’s face it the only major work you do is at the beginning of your business or during the setup process. Once you are done with the initial setup the rest is more or less easy and can be automated.

Spend more time with family
If you are a parent you will agree with me that you spend less time with your siblings and spouse because of your work. Owning an internet business gives you the privilege to spend more time with your family and watch them grow. I have known that the most regret people have is spending less time with the people the love most.

You can have more than one business
Since the cost of setting up and running an internet business are so low and most operations can be automated, it gives you the advantage of owning more than one business. The more time you have at your disposal the more you can spend it on setting and running another enterprise. This will mean off course added income. There is so much wealth to be accumulated in this world that no one should be poor.

I currently run more than one online business. Like I said before my intention is to increase my revenue base and ensure that the online businesses can fully support my day to day needs. I foresee, myself quitting my regular job in the nearest future.

Conclusion
I thank God for the internet. It has really changed the way things are done and if fully utilized, can benefit and can lift you to greater heights.
