One of the greatest revolutions of our time is all businesses, small and great, going online. Have you ever thought of starting your online business but don’t know how to start or where to start from?
Maybe you have heard of people making millions of dollars daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly from the internet without you understanding how it could be possible.
Another cause may be those searching for financial freedom and how to quit that frustration sticking 9 to 5 job with your boss always looking from your shoulder on how good or poor your performance is for the day.
Gone are days of starting a business with huge capital and great business proposals. It is not mandatory anymore to have a business office, storefront, or factory to start your own dream business. People are now finding it harder every day to step out of their living before getting all their essential needs.
All they need to do is to put on their PC, connect to the internet, search out whatever they need on the search machine, place their order, and have it shipped to whatever address they are. What a simple world! I can get all I needed from my bedroom. Anything under the sun can be sold and bought on the internet.

Advantages of Starting an Internet Business:
*Very low or Zero start-up capitals.
Today’s government and schools make it mandatory for all the staff and students to be computer literate and internet compliant. These have forced the government and schools to provide computers and internet connectivity to major schools and offices. The majority of staff and students are trained free to use the computer and the internet service. That is a great investment for you.
Apart from the government, most homes today are having PC for family use. Churches, mosques, and even shrines today are using computers with an internet connection. That is to say, PC is a common thing to get nowadays. We are in the era of having a computer, an internet service provider (ISP), an email address, and even having a Blog has become essential as food, water, and air.
If you happen to be among those having free computer and internet services in your office or school, start your internet business immediately. All you need do is to get one or two training manuals on internet marketing and start from there. Well, some of the ebooks are junk,’ but you can get a quality manual with mentorship at a very affordable fee.
If you don’t have an office or school internet center, you can go for option B, called cyber Cafe. All over the world today, we have cyber cafes everywhere, even in villages. Depending on the area and the cyber cafe’s standard, to browse the internet for one hour is raging from 70naira to 150naira per hour in Nigeria or 0.46cents to $1 per hour in US Dollars. If you should have 4hours daily for your internet business, it will cost you 280naira every day or $1.85 every day on your business.
It is an 8,400naira or $55.5 monthly investment in your online business. If you have the right Niche at hand, this 8,400naira or $55.5 can earn you 225,000naira or $1,500 monthly. If you count the cost and the margin of the internet and the offline business, you will know that internet business is the millennium revolution.
If you want to be in total control of your internet business, option C should be your best option if and only if you can afford it. With this option, you will need to buy your own PC or Laptop and get your own internet service provider (ISP). At this point, you are in total control of your internet business.
You don’t have a fear of after office hour where will you go. You don’t have a fear of the cafe not working some weekends. At this point, your office can be your bedroom, seating room, farm, even the beach. I started my internet business with option B as a cafe boy, but I browse from my bedroom’s comfort.
With 80,000naira, i.e., a $530 budget, you can get your own brand new laptop and a Broadband MODEM here in Nigeria. The laptop will cost you 60,000naira or far less than that if you are going for the cheap ones. The MODEM will cost you 20,000naira or cheaper than that based on your choice of network.
With the advent of telecommunication industries, GSM phones are making internet access easier every day. You can now use your phone as MODEM and your phone service provider as your ISP. Whatever the budget here, 80,000naira does not pay rent of your storefront for one year but can set up your online business for life. Therefore, an internet business is the cheapest business you can ever start.
*World Wide Access
The internet exposes you to the world. People can access your business from any part of the world. This is one of the advantages that ancient and orthodox business never hard. Today, 99% of business owners in the united state are going online. You don’t need to travel to the US, UK, Europe, Asia, and Africa before doing business with them.
You can sell or buy from any of these continents, even if you live in the Sahara desert. All you may need is to Register a Domain Name and host for one year, which may not cost you more than 5,000naira, i.e., $34.
What do you think if the 6 billion people in the world will go online and you have a $10 product that 1billion people are desperately looking for? One day, you will wake up $10billion rich.
* Zero or little Business Discriminations
The internet has broken the ethnic barriers and racial discriminations in business. You don’t need to know who you are selling to or who buying from; all that matters on the internet is the quality of services rendered. It doesn’t matter either the man is the black, white, yellow, or red man. All that matters is the service needed and the service provided.
Some people may blacklist some countries, but that does not make everybody in that country fraudulent.
* Work from anywhere
Another powerful advantage of internet Business is the Work from Home, Work from Beach, Work from your hotel room, Work while traveling, even Work. At the same time, you sleep if you are using the autopilot system and software. No more working 9 am to 5 pm in that congested office space with a nagging boss looking from your shoulder. You are your own boss in the internet business, but the internet would become your boss if you lost focus. Be focused and disciplined.
* No Off
The internet never closes. It is on 7/24/365days. The internet never goes off nor sleep year in year out. Your server or ISP may be down, but the entire internet can never be down. You may be asleep in Africa, and others can be awake in America buying from your business while you sleep.
