Just thinking about starting an internet home based business can be intimidating. But no matter where you are along the planning stages of realizing your vision, whether you are still in the dreamlike stage, or you’ve already taken serious steps in starting your business, here are 18 reasons which should keep you moving in the right direction.
1 If you currently spend 30 – 60 minutes a day on social networking sites, you have more than enough time to put together and manage your own internet business.
2 No cash reserves required, no SBA loans to get started, and negligible operating costs.
3 By starting your own home based venture, you set the work mood and control the environment.
4 You get to spend more quality time with our family.
5 Your business generates income 24/7 while you are asleep.
6 Software is easy to download and designed to handle most types of business.
7 Your business can be managed wherever there is internet connection.
8 No rent, no stock investment, no employees, no customers (service or support) to deal with.
9 You don’t even have to worry about customer parking.
10 Multi-income stream template allows income from many different sources.
11 You’re not depending on 1 or 2 products to carry your business.
12 Most difficult aspects of e-commerce are taken care of for you to concentrate on driving traffic.
13 Vendors rely on websites like yours to sell their product: Many items can be downloaded, e.g., e-books, PDF files and software as well as many tangible products than can not be downloaded.
14 All shipping arrangements are handled by the vendor.
15 Your upscale visitors won’t notice if your business is located in a “bad” neighborhood.
16 You can relocate your residence at any time, change cities, states, countries and still maintain contact with visitors/customers/clients/ subscribers.
Your business can be started and managed while you keep your day job. Starting a traditional brick-and-mortar business would make doing all this extremely difficult. The final reason (or benefit) to starting your own home business is that it’s a lot easier when someone does all the “behind the scenes” work for you, especially if you don’t have the time or energy to do it yourself.
