online-commerceYou may be thinking about starting your own business but you are wondering if the online route is the best way. As a new online business owner, I am here to tell you it is the best decision you can make. Personally, I love that I don’t have to pay rent or insurance for an office space or store. The operating cost for our new business has been well under $1000. While studying business in undergrad, professors always told us the disadvantages of starting your own business. Starting a business online can minimize some of those concerns new business owners tend to have. Please see the below 3 of many reasons why you should start your business online.

  1. Perfect Venue: The venue is perfect for business because it is only a click away. Easy access is the number one reason why consumers currently choose online shopping over physically going to a store.
  2. Improved Customer Service: An online business is able to provide quickest and more efficient customer support. For example, an online business can offer live chat support versus the traditional face to face or over the phone. Worldwide customer service adds value to a business and the product or service it provides.
  3. Decrease Cost: Online businesses tend to cost less when operating solely online. New technology allows business owners to manage billing, shipping and inventory all with one click of a mouse. E-business solutions can cut cost drastically in maintenance and operation cost.
