6 Benefits to Online Business
By Diego Norte

This is a great time to own an online business. With so much going on in the economy, you may be wondering if you've really made the right decision. A traditional job may seem more stable. But is it? The world as we know it seems to be changing, so here is a little encouragement for your online business venture.

1. You will save money by telecommuting - Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you've noticed that gas prices are still rising. By working from home and on your own, you will save money and wear and tear on your car by not having to make the daily round trip to and from work.

2. Customers will save money by ordering online - Whether your product is needed everyday or fills a niche, your customers will be able to save gas money by ordering online instead of driving to a specialty store. Online businesses are booming right now, simply because most people are looking for ways to travel less. Your online business can benefit from this!

3. Rent / storage is cheap - Wait, this is an online business...why would this matter? Depending on the type of product or service you sell, you might find yourself quickly needing to store merchandise or have a central location other than the spare bedroom or garage. Now is a great time to invest in property if you are in a position to do so. There are also deals available from storage facilities trying to attract customers in these hard times.

4. No fear of layoff - This is your business. The success or failure of the business is in your hands. Many of us have had the unfortunate experience of being laid off from a job. In how many of those situations did you find yourself questioning the business practices of higher-ups? By owning your own business, you are in complete control of how it is run.

5. Online tools are more available now than ever - With the growth of online retail, many companies have made software and programs with online business in mind. It is easier than ever before to find good resources to help with your business. Some companies even offer free versions for you to try out.

6. You can target your market - Many consumers in the world have been increasingly annoyed by the mass marketing of many retailers these days. They are now looking for smaller businesses that can meet their specific needs instead of trying to fit into a one size fits all product. They may be looking for "green" or natural or animal friendly businesses and you are in a position to make your company what your customers want it to be.

So be encouraged! Online business can be a scary and exciting step. But while it has been a shaky way to go in the past, it may just be gaining grown over traditional business. This is a great time to get started!
