In the now economic crises, many people are out of a job with no hope in sight. Is there a loophole around this black hole of despair? There is definitely a way out, and I’m going to let you in on the secret. This is a call to action, and it is imperative to take such action sooner rather than later. As always, the course of such action taken will be entirely up to you.
- Why, with the fall of the American economy, will the brick and mortar business be obsolete sooner than you think?
We have always, with the exception of the last decade, gone to a physical store to purchase our everyday items. With the economic downfall, small business owners and even major corporations have a small chance of staying open and functional. Car companies are dropping like flies; being chopped up and bought out by foreign companies. Good bye jobs, economic growth and stability for the American people.
- The new world of Dog eats Dog.
There is unrest out there in the world of jobs, money and even trust in our own government. People within the different unions, whether it be teachers, labor, or the electrician union, are looking out for themselves at this point. The seniority will let the low man on the totem pole, e.g. you, lose his or her job before they take a pay cut.
- An alternative to the timeless storefront business.
With more and more businesses closing their doors, business owners and consumers alike are looking for a new alternative to the old “brick and mortar” business that we have relied on for as long as time has been ticking. These days, people are looking more toward the virtual store front for all of their amenities, product, and services. Anything from entertainment, tax service, buying products,in the know or even ordering a pizza can be done on the World Wide Web at a cheaper rate. The merchants of yesterday will be forced to be the merchants of tomorrow if they want to get back on their feet again. Meaning if they want business they will have to get a virtual store front. It’s easier than ever to create your own web site to sell your commodity at a high rate of volume.
- Less means more.
The difference of having a traditional brick and mortar business versus a virtual one is very simple and far more economically sound. With a physical store, you have to think about paying a staff and their benefits, insurance on the building, utilities and the list could go on and on. With having an online store, the cost is fractional in a sense. You can be a one man band at home and run a business that can make you financially free.
- The virtual store.
With a virtual store, you will have to pay a whopping $40 a month for the site that you are hosting through, and a custom domain name that may be $25 dollars a year. Everything else, like promoting, can be free and reach millions. Shipping costs can be included in the shipping and handling charge on behalf of the customers. With a merchant account, you pay only a percentage of every transaction and it’s a small one at that.
So, with the newly found knowledge about the two, I hope that it has you thinking of tomorrow and what could come. You might as well accept it now; you’re going to be part of the web 2.0 movement that is in full swing whether you like it or not. It is up to you! Do you want to act now and claim your spot among the thousands flocking daily to this new concept, or be left in their dust? Learn the ins and outs now to set yourself up for success.
