10 Reasons Why You Should Become an Internet Entrepreneur
I bless the day I came across a post that said “I can become an internet entrepreneur if I am smart enough“. Since that day I have always found love for online business. And since I became a full-time internet entrepreneur, I have never regretted it.
If you still think you are not yet convinced to becoming an internet entrepreneur, then this post is right just for you.
If you have ever thought of a business where you could choose when you work, where you work, and who you work with, it is the internet business.
Let me share with you why I am happy that I am an internet entrepreneur and why you should consider becoming one too this year.
10 Reasons to be an Internet Entrepreneur
- You Are Your Own Boss
Yes, you are your own boss when you become an internet entrepreneur. No one gets to tell you what to do and how to do it. No one gets to yell at you for coming late to the office.
In this business, I get to make my own rules and choose when I work. I am happy when I sleep late at night because I know I don’t have anywhere to go to the next morning if I wake up late.
If you have always dreamt of a day when you will be in charge of your time and still make money, then starting an internet business is your exit strategy.
- You Get to Work in Your Pajamas
As an internet entrepreneur, you don’t need to wake up early to take your bath and get dress. You can work right from your bed with your pajamas.
Most times, I don’t even get out of the bed until I have done something that put money into my bank account because my laptop is always by my side. This is how I start my day after my morning prayer!
- Low Capital Startup Cost
You can start an online business with as low as $50. Some online business doesn’t even require up to that amount. Some are even free to start (freelance writing).
Unlike a brick and mortar business, you will be required to rent a store, acquire the products that you will be selling or buy equipment for the business, and you may end up spending up to 5 figures without hope that the business will be successful.
With an internet business, you spend less than $50 in acquiring domain name and hosting and the rest is history.
- All You Need is a Laptop and an Internet Connection
For a regular business, you will need more than just a computer. But for an online business, you will just need a computer (desktop or laptop), an internet connection, a target market and a business mindset.
You can work from a coffee shop, from the beach, work while you are traveling in the train or anywhere. You don’t need a permanent office to work as an internet entrepreneur. My office is wherever I feel like putting my laptop down as far as there is an internet connection there.
- You Market to the World
With the web, you can sell your products or services to anyone in the world as far as you can reach the person via the internet. You don’t need to travel to make deals, you do that with either your smart phone with internet connection or laptop.
I have done business with people as far as Namibia, Indonesia, Malawi, Gambia, United States of America and from many other countries.
- Your Earning is on Autopilot
As an internet entrepreneur, you get to make money even while you are sleeping. You can be sleeping and you wake up to see that someone has bought one of your online product or has registered for one of your paid course.
Autopilot software has made our business so easy that we don’t have to always stay glue to our system to get paid. This idea of making money while you sleep should be a motivating factor why you should join the league.
- You Must Not Have Your Own Products
There is an internet business called, ‘Affiliate Marketing’. With this kind of business, you don’t need to spend time creating your own products, all you need to do is just choose any products that you like to sell and get a commission after every sale.
With affiliate marketing, you get paid a commission from every sale you make. You can become an affiliate to Amazon, Jumia, Konga, eBay, Clickbank and sell any product that suits you.
Please, have it in mind that the products you will be selling must be related to your niche as an internet entrepreneur. for example, if I want to sell products as an affiliate marketer, I will have to sell products like ebooks that relates to either freelance writing or starting an online business.
- There is Income Limit
There is no limit to how much you can make as an internet entrepreneur. You get to pick how much you want to make monthly and work towards it. Whatsoever you make online on a monthly basis depends on how you market your business and how much you are charging for your products or services.
- More Free Time
I have a friend who is always hard to find because he is always at work until 8 at night from Monday to Friday. I have never loved this lifestyle from the beginning. I have never loved someone telling me where to be because I depend on that instruction to get paid.
I have always cherished my time. I have always wanted to be available to spend time with old school friends and family members when I wish. Thank God, my online business made it possible for me.
- You Get to Create Jobs
You think becoming an internet entrepreneur means you have to work, work, work, work, work like Rihanna sang? That only happens at the early stage of the business. As your internet business begins to grow, you start outsourcing some work to freelancers.
Google started with only two persons, but today, it has over 30,000 employees. What would those people be doing if Google had not employed them?
I personally have a team of freelance writers and graphic designers that help me execute some writing assignments and graphic work while I spend time marketing my services to get more clients. With my online business, I have been able to empower people by creating job for them.
Now, while did I share this post with you? I shared it with you so you can start thinking about the internet business that you would love to start. If you don’t have any idea which to start, you can Google this keyword, ‘list of internet business’ and you will find up to 100+ internet business to choose from.
