Why Should Seriously Consider Starting an Online Business

I stumbled into an interesting article earlier this week. The writer, a freelancer from the Netherlands advices freelancers to learn their craft and perfect it, using one or a few of the many freelancer platforms to get better (at what they do) whilst earning some money along the way. 

Once you are confident that you are very good at what you do, create a website, sell your services directly to clients. 

Second move is to use that website for affiliate marketing because you can refer your web visitors to other sites and earn a commission each time they buy something (on the other site). 

Many freelancers complain that they don't earn much but that is because they don't want to leave their comfort zone. Push yourself out, learn internet marketing and you'll most certainly see you fortune change.

Online business is a great idea. You will have a greater reach as it is accessible worldwide so more people would be able to reach your site. But you need a good team to handle all the logistics. You need an initial good investment and then the delivery of the products worldwide should also be taken care of. Digital marketing is a great idea to boost your online sales and to attract more people. You will enjoy the course there is no doubt about it.

I agree the online business seems more realistic. And most of the people who have low on budget. They should be definitely trying the online business when and where they can. because in the long term they seem to be better option. And that is one reason I'd be do online business. I agree with you on that context.

An online business allows you to earn money while you are sleeping. If you are selling digital products such as ebooks, customers could purchase anytime anywhere without additional task on your part. Once you've established your website, potential customers could just simply place their orders and with the use of e-commerce software, the delivery of the item can be automated. Online business can give you a passive income. Other freelancers are able to stop from working directly to their clients because of their online business.

Online business whole essence is working from the comfort of one's home and money is made . What we really need is the needed skill to picked and work on jobs that are worthwhile. Some jobs online can expressly take over one's offline job.

True that skills matter if you're planning to begin online entrepreneurship. But remember, another thing that is required is capital. Just like any other business, it needs cash to run it efficiently when you're just launching it. You'll spend so much on digital marketing before making ideal sales.

I think you are mistaking online business for passive business. Online business can be both passive and active. Like say teaching other people is active online business where you can't make money sleeping. But if you open dropshipping store, it works with automation, it should give you money from the passive approach. So depending on that online business does not mean making money in sleep.

I agree an online business can be active or passive! Depending on the nature of your online business can be considered as a passive or active. When the business cannot function without your presence that would be an active income. Like in online teaching for example, if you always do your teaching on live streaming, the session will not start without your presence, that would be an active income. But when you prerecorded all your lessons and your students can login to their account and study the lessons by watching the videos perhaps that could be considered as a passive income. You'll earn through membership fees. You just have to create all your videos and upload it on your website then you could earn repeatedly even without you being online. I hope I somehow got it right.

I'm really trying to push my self out there to be able to get more jobs. There are jobs with very few freelancers in the niche like translating and transcribing which people really need people for. I'm learning the ropes from YouTube tutorials I hope to familiarize with them,so that I can launch out in those niches.

Wow, I feel motivated to see that I am not alone. I am also pushing myself by learning other skills through YouTube tutorials.

Youtube tutorials are becoming more and more valuable as more tutors use the platform to reach a wider audience. There are also those who have tried before and are sharing their experiences on Youtube. There are really plenty of ways to help us make it through our niche.

Exactly the same. I'm always trying to push my limits. Though I always try to search for some tips or some hacks to get better in my carreer in watching youtube.

I think starting your own business can definitely be profitable and it allows you to take out the middle man in terms of payments.

However I do think there’s also a sizable risk potential of going it alone. I think as long as you’re pretty confident in what you’re producing then it’s often worth the risk though.

It is a great business since most us now rely on social media. Most of us also love shopping especially us women, and to those doesn't have time going to shopping malls, they just do online shop since it is convenient to them. Basically online is in trend now a days due and as I've said it is a lot more convenient may be from the seller and to the consumers.

True, online shopping is popular today as it is more convenient than going to physical store. I agree that women are tend to love more shopping and they are mostly the one who buy online. I also know someone, he is a man and he really do love shopping online. I teased him about that, I teased him that he is a King shopping.

True. For us to be able to earn more money, as freelancer we must go out to our comfort zone and explore our craft and find our niche and expand our knowledge thru creating websites and for us to earn more, we should try marketing affiliate as this will help us to build more earnings thru advertisements.

I was in my comfort zone until one day I realized how my clients were making cash through affiliate marketing, yet I was the one writing the articles. At the moment, I am learning the ropes, and I already have the domain.

Wow that's good. So you are earning now? that's great. I hope someday I can create a website as for now I am doing minimal things first while planning my website and other micro freelancing.

I prefer serious business because jobs end some day. And so does the paycheck. And business is what keeps on running with or without you. So your earning source remains continuous in such case. I have seen that starting online business means one has to take things a bit serious on many grounds for proper business setup. People who want to have better old age should consider starting business and spend their time building it.

This is a sound plan, a risk worth taking. If one would really take time to learn the trade, and they would have the courage to take the lift out of their comfort zones, then he could soon claim success for their own. Do you happen to keep the link to that article?

Just like what you stated, learn your craft and perfect it. Online business is very in demand nowadays because it gives convenient for busy people. They can shop, pay, and transact in just a tap on their mobile phones. However, starting an online business is not that easy. You really have to study and make a concrete plan before making an investment.

I am seriously considering putting up an online business, and I already know what platform that I'll use. My target market is the US, and the only thing that's preventing me from starting it is the funds, haha! I hope I get to launch it someday so help me God.

I heard there's a popular ex businessman in Russia, German Sterlingov. He was a rich millionaire back in 90's when the USSR collapsed. He bought a lot of land and created his own network of rural villages, producing a lot of expensive, but high quality food. He now lives like a GOD.

Wow, that's impressive. But how is your reply related to my plan to set-up an e-commerce store? I'm kidding. Thanks for sharing.

Online business is really a good idea since it might give us a decent income if we just know how to do it. I think it is a good option to have an online business while we also have an offline job so that we can maximize our earning potential up to the fullest. It is very hard now to live comfortably if we only have a small salary form our job and online business can help us to earn more or to increase our monthly earnings as well.

Online business gives you the privilege of earning money while taking care of your family. Many people sacrifices their time with their family to earn money from working abroad or working away from their family. Though they earn more than enough to provide the needs of their family but the time they spent away from their family will never get back. Through online business many people are given the opportunity to earn money without leaving their family.

That's so true. I've noticed how a lot of foreign workers sacrifice their time with their family just so they can provide for them financially. A lot of them even don't get to see their children grow up. They only see each other every few years or so.

Overall starting a business nowadays is a good prospect, because our population grows and the demands grow as well. I think an online business should be combined between the sales online and having an establishment/office outside the "field of internet". It would be a universal decision to gain the most profit and customers.

That's very smart of you. I think so too. It would be a worthwhile investment. Having your own business gives you the financial freedom to enjoy life. I've seen successful people who have a lot of free time for their family thanks to owning businesses.

@Steve that's true, but in part. Online jobs are hard as well, and consume your time. Although, the feeling of doing them with a cup of coffee, in the warm house, near to your family and without the need to dress up and go somewhere is surely worth it.

Having an online business is an easy way to earn money if you know how to handle it. Besides, online business is the new trend where it is more convenient for the consumers to go online since it saves time and money to them.

It is like you wrote this post just for me. I recently got to the point where I realised, no one will hand me the opportunities I have been looking for. A great way to get them is right here (on the internet). I have been coming through a few freelancer sites and I am famiarising myself with the way they work.As soon as I get the hang of it, things will definitely be turning for the better.

When you expect to have everything handed to you, then you will live your life in utmost disappointment because no one would hand you such opportunity. It's either you take such opportunity by yourself or you keep slipping down the slippery slope.

When it comes to being a freelance writer, you have to work so hard to make yourself be unique in your services because it's what would set you apart.

I hope that you'll be successful in your field. Well, we all want to be successful and of course, earn money. I am just glad that because of internet, people can aern through different ways.

Exactly! If you keep working within your comfort zone, then you are more likely never going to actualize your full potential.

Step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself to get better at what you do. It's not going to be easy but it would be worth it on the long run.

I agree and like this advise. In the freelancing world the real money is in having direct clients. Having your own website is more professionals and this is the way to attract especially business clients. I agree that you should also diversify your income and also put some affiliate links on your website. With freelancing you need to have as many income streams as possible, the more the merrier.

Thank you for sharing this. I hope though we could know the details but nonetheless I get the point. What I find hard is how to start it. It's not enough to know how things work. I am still lost on where to start things out. I hope I could find a legit website with details on how to do so. Some sites were just a scam to let you invest until you realize that you lost everything.

Online business is indeed a very helpful one to those who have no budget in putting up a brick and mortar store for their desired business.
