Is Starting Up An Online Business  Worth The Risk?  The Pros and Cons of Starting an Online Business

If you are planning to start an online home business, you may be wondering what you are letting yourself in for. Stepping into the unknown for the first time can be scary, but it could also be one of the most rewarding things you have ever done.

But like any decision you make in life, it’s a good idea to know the pros and cons before starting an online home business.

Starting an Online Home Business: The Cons

Loneliness: Starting an online home business can be extremely lonely if you are used to working with others.

Motivation: Sometimes it can be difficult to motivate yourself to work, when you are surrounded by home comforts and temptations. It’s worth learning to manage your time effectively.

No Escape: Unless you have a dedicated room in your home that you can use to run your online business, you may sometimes feel that you are at work 24/7.

Interruptions: Friends and family sometimes don’t realise how much time starting an online home business can take. You will need to get used to dealing with interruptions, and set boundaries so you have plenty of time to work.

Temptations: When you are working from home, there are so many temptations to drag you away from your online business. Set yourself strict times for watching TV, and chatting to friends on social networks.

Starting an Online Home Business: The Pros

Low Costs: The initial start up and running costs of starting an online business from home are low. You don’t need to pay expensive rentals for business premises, and if you have a computer, chances are you have most of the equipment you need to get started.

Global Connections: When you are starting an online home business, you are not restricted to trading in your local area. You can connect with people and find customers from across the globe.

No Travel Required: Getting up in the morning and not having to commute to work is a huge plus. It saves you time and it saves you money on travel. And if you are trying to cut your expenses before you start, you may even be able to get rid of your car. Plus, not having to step out into the freezing cold on a winter morning is a huge bonus to running an online business from home.

Flexible Hours: Starting an online home business gives you the freedom to choose your own hours. If you have children, it is  easy to fit in the school run. And if you want to take a particular day off, you are free to pick and choose.

Many business owners feel that starting an online home business is the best thing they   have ever done. But only you can weigh up the pros and cons and decide whether it is right for you.

How to Start a Successful Online Business for Beginners

Are you hoping to start a successful online business but you haven’t got a clue where to start? Don’t worry it’s easy to learn the basics.


How to Choose the Right Online Business for You

To be truly successful, you need to choose the right online business for you. It’s a whole lot easier to make money doing something you enjoy. So think about your passions, and interests.

Could you turn any of those into a successful online business? If not, perhaps there is something you have always wanted to learn more about.  If you’re really passionate about what you do, you’re less likely to give up when the going gets tough.


Do You Need Your Own Product or Service?

In the beginning, you may worry that you don’t have the necessary skills or resources to develop your own product or service to sell. But don’t let that put you off. Many successful online business owners start out by selling other people’s products through affiliate marketing and make commissions as high as 50%.

Do You Need Your Own Website?

You should aim to have your own website eventually, but for some types of online business, it isn’t essential from the beginning. If you want to sell your own products online, you can promote them on sites like Zazzle, Etsy and Ebay.

But if you are serious about building a successful online business, you should aim to have your own website as soon as you can. And it really isn’t all that complicated or expensive.

The Basic Tools You Need to Build Your New Website

ü  A Domain Name: This is the address that people will use to reach your online business.  For example: myawesomebusiness.com. A domain name will cost you around $10.

ü  A Hosting Account: You need a hosting account to store your website online. It’s easy to find hosting accounts online for bargain prices and most allow you to pay monthly.

ü  A Website: If you’re not at all technical, don’t let this put you off. There are many tools available to simplify the process of building your own website. You don’t need even need to learn any complicated coding. And if you don’t want to build your own website yourself, there are plenty of creative people online who can do it for you.

Don’t let technical worries and lack of experience put you off. If you’re determined to escape the rat race and start a successful online business, you can get started in no time, with minimal start up costs.

The best place to get started would be a forum called Freedom Fast Lane in there you will have access to all the tools you will need to be successful  along with coaching from some of the best coaches available.freedom-fast-lane-monthly-coaching-membership

Ryan Moran, Travis Sago, and Jason Drohn have put together videos and step by step guides in the Freedom Fast Lane forum that will guide you in making money online quickly.

There are weekly webinars available for you to get your questions answered and work with you one on one to insure your success.
