You can do so much on the internet now, I already have an online business but as we are buying a property in Spain for warmer winters I have a house to sell here first. Local estate agents quoted a price considerably higher than the online estate agent, so I chose the cheaper option.
Yes I decided to try them out. I was a little concerned as after the first week nothing had happened – no viewings! Usually the early days are busy with a local agent as they usually send your details to everyone on their books whom might be interested.
However last night I had a viewing. Checking my emails when I came in I found a lady wanted to view that evening, she arrived as arranged the service offered was easy and efficient!
Now all I need is either a few more viewings or to hear she liked what she saw and that we agree a price.
There are so many other things you can do online – at the weekend we wanted to know what was happening locally, Google gave us the answer.
Booking flights online means no more queuing at the airport, you just go to departures and your holiday begins. If you want to learn something just Google your keywords. If you are about to travel the online maps are brilliant and easy to find and if you want to see the area where you are going on holiday before you book, go to Google and enter the town or area.you would like to view. It is also quick to find the weather forecast for the next week or ten days. The more you use Google searches the more you realise how useful the internet is.
Now there is something else very beneficial you can do online; that is to start a hobby business in your spare time. It can give you security for the future and offer early retirement. Begin whilst you have an income from your current work, you never know how safe your job is anyway; 800 people locally were recently made redundant when a long-established business collapsed. I’m sure some of those people wished they had a hobby business to fall back on, especially as many families had more than one member working there. Although we think we are out of recession, redundancies happen all the time. Companies that have been struggling to survive for years just can’t make it and people are out of work. Safeguard yourself and your family.
Affiliate marketing is a simple way to start online. You are like a middle man, introducing potential buyers to other company’s products and letting them do most of the work for you! This all happens online with no face to face selling. You just choose a topic you are interested in, and there are hundreds or companies looking for affiliates in all niches.
If you follow a simple plan and don’t reinvent the wheel, with a bit of determination to learn some new skills you can build a business in your spare time. Take your time and enjoy your progress! Support it with your current income, don’t expect too much too soon whilst you are still learning. A business online can be started much more cheaply than a conventional business. It is fun to learn new things and exciting to watch your hobby business grow; why not develop an existing interest or consider something new.
Enjoy exploring a new venture.
