Internet and Business Online – The Shifty Pride Factor

There are practical and even motivational reasons to market when you are seeking to establish a business online.

In this article let’s take a look at some of the motivational reasons.

First of all, let’s break down a very specific wall that is generally erected when someone who is not comfortable with marketing objects to the idea that they need to promote a business.

That wall is in many ways a reverse sense of pride. A wall is erected because they believe that if they show enthusiasm for what they are doing it will draw undue attention to themselves.

I can hear you asking yourself how being humble is a sign of pride.

The quick answer is that some people who do not want to market their business take ‘pride’ in the fact that they are humble. That may sound odd, but humility in this case can actually be a source of pride.

When you get married do you want others to know about it or do you self-consciously hide your ring finger? You let others know and you show the rock.

When a child is born into your family do you want to tell others about the birth or is it something to be quiet about? You tell others with happiness, photos and a diaper bag.

When you buy the car of your dreams do you hide it in the garage or do you want others to notice? Well, I suppose that depends on the person, but many are more than happy to pass along every detail of their new finely tuned road instrument to anyone with ears.

When you get tickets to your favorite sports events do you want your neighbor to know? Sure you do and you wave the foam number one hand while wearing a jersey when you pass along the good news over the backyard fence.

The truth is we love to tell other people about the things we are most proud of. Grandparents love to show pictures of their grandchildren, some moms love to share their recipes or crafting skills, some guys love to show off their garage and the tools found within.

Why should marketing a business online be any different? Aren’t you proud of your new business? Don’t you want others to know about the wonderful items you have for sale?

Of course you do, and that’s where marketing comes in.

Every few minutes while watching television we get to view marketing statements made by companies that believe in their business and are willing to spend thousands of dollars to share their excitement with you. Every time you open a newspaper you will find businesses that utilize advertising to market their business. They are proud of the hard work it took to get that business going and they know they’ve been able to help other people.

You’ve worked hard on your online business and you have every right to be proud of it. When you almost insist on keeping it hidden the perception by any potential customers who take the time to notice is that you do not really believe in your own business, which may be an unfair perception. Then again, perception often becomes reality.

Internet and Business Online – Equal Opportunity For All

Is it only those man and women who grow up in prosperous homes that can pursue the dream of owning their own business? Is it true that the young are the only ones equipped to deal in an online environment? Is nationality an indicator of candidacy for ecommerce?

No, no and no!

There was a time when successful businesses were often developed and operated by those who came from families of wealth. There was a time when youth was necessary to fully build a thriving business worthy of a legacy. There was a time when gender, social class and ethnicity were all important indicators of the probability of success in business.

Those rules do not apply to online business.

The world of online ecommerce is subjected to a different filter. Many of these businesses are being developed by men and women in their fifties and sixties who have always wanted to develop a dream job and found the Internet the perfect ‘vision’ vehicle.

There really only seems to be one predominant prejudice in online business – “Can you deliver what you promise?” If you can’t then you could be young, rich and a part of a nationality you believe to be acceptable and still lack a stable bottom line.

The truth is the Internet facilitates business online because they are product driven in an environment that acknowledges a consumer centric mentality. Websites are developed using knowledge-based content that consumers expect and price structures are fair and competitive.

In most cases the customer will never ask for a photo ID, a bank statement or the median age of your employees. They are simply looking for a site they can trust to deliver a product they need.

On virtually every point the Internet has leveled the playing field to allow anyone the opportunity to develop cash flow based on their ability to connect with a customer base and deliver an ‘in demand’ product.

Where face-to-face commerce may be elusive to some, the world of online business and marketing is an exciting prospect for individuals who may be stressed out over a decline in job satisfaction and/or security, a feeling of purposelessness and a general decline in interest in traditional employment.

Many individuals who have taken the plunge into ecommerce are discovering a freedom they have never experienced in an environment that works well when they really want to participate in a thing called life.

The work of developing an online business may be the hardest work you have ever encountered, but it comes with its own set of payoffs that other alternatives just can’t compete with.

Even individuals who are differently-abled are finding success in an environment that does not seem to think it important to consider the physical capabilities of the online business owner.

This article may seem as if I am suggesting that online business is a walk in the park. Let me be clear, it is not. It is extremely hard work with no guarantees of success. That being said, most entrepreneurs find the world of online business the most promising alternative in the tough world of business.

The Internet And Business Online: How Profitable Can This Get?

First, you can sell ad space on your website. To get interest from advertisers, you have to make sure that the topic of your site is also attractive to internet users because advertisers believe that many visitors to the site can increase their chances of getting attention.

Second, you can sell items on your website as a side business for your real business. You can sell mugs, T-shirts and other items that contain your site’s logo. This help line can also help increase your profits.

Finally, some visitors to the site can decide to give you money even if you don’t ask for it. Don’t refuse donations because they can add to your income and that is the way they show their appreciation for offering them the exact information they need. But, you cannot depend on this because your income is very uncertain with this approach.

Meanwhile, if your business sells certain items online, you can promote what you sell by sending articles that contain the right keywords so that Internet users will be able to be directed to your website and they may become interested in trying and buying what that you offer. In this way, all opportunities offered by the Internet and online businesses, which include further benefits and expansion, will be fully utilized.
