Do you get a heart prick when you hear of online business in Nigeria? Smiles! We have been scammed by lots of fraudsters, who guise themselves as online business agents. I have lost reasonable amount of cash to scammers who pretend to be who they are not. Well, what am talking about here is not that kind of online business like a ponzi scheme, gaming or gambling. I am talking about a legit Deal.
In today’s world, the internet has become a very large market and a very great source of making money. The world has gone global and virtually all the people surf and search the internet for lots of information on health, business, sport, education, politics, religion, lifestyle and a whole lot more. I guess you wouldn’t want to be singled out as one who is short of ideas because you are not engaged in it.
Why You Should Consider an Online Business
Since the internet is the biggest market in the world and lots of people get answers to problem from the internet, it will be a very awesome opportunity for you to venture into doing one of the online businesses I will be sharing but first, let’s see the benefits of going online.
1.) Proximity to Large Audience
People who wish to set up their business do so in busy area. Why? This is because it offers the advantage of having your business exposed to large number of people who get to see you regularly and patronize your business.
Business people desire setting up their shops in motor parks, commercial places and areas with larger traffic.
The internet offers more than just having your business displayed to large audience but goes beyond it. You tend to show your business to the world (locally and internationally).
Provided you have your business set up online, on the internet, there is every tendency that the whole will see what you do, especially when the search through Google. Therefore, having one, makes you nearer to the world.
2.) Offers Better Opportunities
I have friends from Nigeria who work for international organizations in different countries. These guys, get paid for working from their locality. As a matter of fact, they have not seen their employers one on one but interact daily.
Having your business displayed on internet offers greater opportunities beyond your imagination. Provided you can solve a problem, and then show it up online, then ready to have a big profit coming your way.
There was a guy who by chance redesigned innoson ventures motors logo and got a contract. The interesting thing is that this guy did this job and tag IVM and that was all. Yes. This is the benefits of online presence.
3.) Cheap to Set Up
What does it take to have a Facebook account, Twitter or Instagram account? Nothing really.
It takes few thousands to set up your website compared to the much you will be paying to have a physical shop. It takes like ten times the cash you invest on physical shop to securing a site online.
On your site, you can have lots of stuffs displayed and even run add for people for a fee. I think you should consider this.
4.) Easy to Manage
Do you hate getting up at 5am and retiring to bed at 10pm? Working 8hours daily for 5 days for a payment at the end of the month? Damn! I don’t like it too even.
Hosting or running your business online, you can work anytime and anywhere you desire provided you have light and data. You can actually pocket a million lying on your bed or chilling out at a cool garden with your laptop.
You don’t need to be going up and down working or selling stuffs for money. You can just sit at a place and run it from your computer easily without stress. I hope you like an easy life like myself.
