Internet advertising and business is on the rise. Like TV, radio, newspapers and magazines, the internet is also a medium for businesses to reach out to consumers. More and more businesses are increasing their advertising budget for online marketing.
With this rising trend of people buying and selling more and more online, there is a huge opportunity for common folks like us to earn handsome amounts of money right from the comfort of out homes.
What’s more – there is no technical, educational or age restrictions. People from all walks of life and with any educational background and age can earn sitting in front of their computers. They can earn sufficiently so that they can even quit doing a full time job.
Further good news is that, people do not need huge amount of money to start out on internet, and they do not need to be a computer geek as well (dont necessarily have to be highly tech-savvy).
A few startling statistics:
In Australia, the Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABC) recently reported that the Australian online advertising market was A$620 million in 2005. This was a 60% growth over A$388 million spend in 2004.
The story is the same in the UK where a recent report by the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) showed that the online advertising market grew by 66% in 2005 to A$3.2 billion (£1.4 billion).
In the US, the online advertising market was estimated to be A$17.6 billion which is about 30% growth over the 2004 statistics.
People are nowadays buying more and more online, from their homes. They can place an order and purchase anything and everything online these days.
The advantage of doing online business for common people like us are:
1. First and foremost, it does not take much money to start an online business. Even though some amount of capital is good to start an internet venture, but the amount of money required for internet business can be just a fraction of what it takes to start a business offline.
2. Secondly, with more and more people becoming computer literate and many homes getting an internet connection, you can reach huge number of people and sell your products to a global audience.
3. The maintenance of business does not require so much capital and efforts as do traditional businesses.
4. Most of the tasks of online business can be automated in time. That means you can spend lesser amounts of time running your business once it has been completely setup and running smoothly. You can devote your time to doing other things you enjoy like spending more time with your family etc.
