The recession is not just the only reason why you should have a
part-time online business. You should have an online business because it is a way to make extra money.
Are you one of those people who complain about their salary not being
enough to make ends meet but don't really do anything concrete about it?
During this recession, I'd like to think
that the most important realization is the fact that having a job does not equal
It just simply means that you are at the mercy of your employers.
happens if they suddenly become bankrupt? Or there is a sudden change of management,
like a merger & acquisition that makes you redundant?
Can you really tell me that this sounds like security to you?
If it was possible for me to scare you into starting a part-time online
business, I would scare you into doing it. It has been so lucrative for some people
that they are actually doing it full-time.
Here are some of the advantages of starting an online business.
It is easier to start
an online business than a traditional one.
Many people with full-time jobs are starting their own part-time online
business. Why? Because it is so easy and most of the time, start-up costs are
low. I cannot count the number of people
who have gotten rich through eBay, affiliate marketing, or information
marketing. But just because you can easily
start one does not mean you will easily succeed. Succeeding in online business lies in
planning-much like a traditional business.
Your customers don't
have to know that you are only a part-time entrepreneur.
There's a reason why the world has become a global village; the Internet
has made it possible for people to reach out to other people from all over the
world. Are you just doing this part-time? Your customer from Japan probably wouldn't know that. What they're after is the customer
experience. If you're a fast shipper, if
you can reply to them immediately through email, if you are selling something that they need, then they will flock to you.
You are your own
boss, even if it is only a part-time business.
You get to keep what you earn in your online business. In fact, you can stop complaining that all you do is make someone else rich. Not feeling up to
working? You can take a vacation. But
when you do that, make sure you get someone else to take care of your customers.
Internet users are not shy about telling others about a really bad customer
experience. If someone googles your
company and a slew of really bad user experiences come up, say sayonara to your
reputation. It will be difficult getting it back.
Consider starting your own part-time business today. Stop wasting time. If you're one of those lucky
enough to still have a job, start one so you have more security. If you were one of the unlucky people who got
laid off, stop being a victim of the recession and take control of your life.
