One of the greatest revolutions of our time is all businesses small and great going online. Have you ever thought of starting your online business but don’t know how to start or where to start from?
Maybe you have heard of people making millions of dollars daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly from the internet without you understanding how it could be possible.
Another case may be those in search of financial freedom and how to quit that frustration sticking 9 to 5 job with your boss always looking from your shoulder on how good or poor is your performance for the day.
Gone are days of starting business with very huge capitals and great business proposals. It is not mandatory any more to have business office, storefront, or factory to start your own dream business. Now, people are finding it harder everyday to step out of their living before getting all their essential needs.
All they need do is to put on their PC, connect to the internet, search out whatever need on the search machine, place their order, and have it shipped to whatever address they are. What a simple world! I can get all I needed from my bedroom. Anything under the sun can be sold and bought on the internet.
Advantages of Starting internet Business:
*Very low or Zero start up capitals.
Today’s government and schools are making it mandatory for all the staffs and students to be computer literate and internet compliant. These have forced the government and schools to provide computers and internet connectivity to major schools and offices. The majority of staffs and students are trained free on how to use the computer and the internet service. That is a great investment on you.
Apart from government, most home today are having PC for family use. Churches, mosque, and even shrines today are using computer with internet connection. That is to say PC is a common thing to get nowadays. We are in the era of having a computer, an internet service provider (ISP), an email address, and even having a Blog has become very essential as food, water, and air.
If you happen to be among those having free computer and internet services in your office or school, start your internet business immediate. All you need do, is to get one or two training manuals on internet marketing and start from there. Well, some of the ebooks are junks’ but you can get a quality manual with mentorship at a very affordable fee.
If it happens that you don’t have an office or school internet centre, you can go for the option B called cyber Cafe. All over the world today, we have cyber cafe everywhere even to villages.

If you want to be in total control of your internet business, option C should be your best option if and only if you can afford it. This option, you will need to buy your own PC or Laptop, and get your own internet service provider (ISP). At this point, you are in total control of your internet business.
