How To Run A Profitable Business Without Leaving Home

When I talk with friends about Saratoga Springs, many tell me that they would love to relocate here, but they cannot afford to leave their high-paying jobs in NYC or whatever large city they currently reside in. This is certainly a common sentiment, however in this day and age there are many opportunities available for those who wish to earn big city bucks without needing to live in the big city, or any city for that matter.

One of the best of these new opportunities is to become an online marketing expert. With the popularity of the Internet at an all time high, there has never been a better time to get involved in this lucrative profession. This Profit Academy review points out that even complete newbies can start making serious money online assuming that they follow best practices. The Profit Academy program was developed by Anik Singal, a successful entrepreneur well known for his highly effective email marketing training course Inbox Blueprint which teaches students how to build a list of targeted subscribers whom one can sell products and services to via email blasts.

Truly this is a fascinating thought!

What accounts for the popularity of internet marketing? Well let’s look at it from from the customer’s point of view for a moment. The Internet allows a customer to receive updates with ease and convenience. He can do this by browsing websites, receiving e-mails, surfing social networking sites, and receiving online advertisements and promotions, and he can do this wherever or whenever he wants to. In fact, he can even use his smart phone or tablet to get the information he wants – even when he is on the move.

Then when said customer decides that he wants to buy something or that he requires some particular services, the Internet makes it possible for him to get the necessary information so that he makes the best purchase decision. He can do product or service-comparison conveniently from home. He does not have to spend time and effort going to a number of retail outlets. All he has to do is to use the internet to compare features or prices.

Online shops offer easily comprehensible, comprehensive, and reliable product information on their websites. A customer does not have to depend on sales people who may or may not have the information that the customer seeks. He does not have to put up with harassed, unreliable, and unfriendly sales personnel.

A customer can shop anytime.  He does not have to rush to retail outlets after work so that he can buy the things he wants. With online shopping, he can take his time, looking over products or services he is interested in at leisure, without feeling hassled or pressured.

Considering all that, is it any wonder that more and more people are spending more and more of their money over the Internet, rather than in traditional brick and mortar businesses? And just as the Internet had made spending money much easier and more convenient for the customer, so has it made earning money much easier and more convenient for the businessman, to the point where one can live anywhere in the world (with an internet connection) and pull in profits.
