Is Setting Up An Online Business More Feasible Than Setting Up A Traditional Business?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It’s a fair question to ask given all the talk about setting up online businesses as being more feasible. Actually, there is a third option: what I call the hybrid option. This is where you use the internet to promote an already existing traditional business but I digress. I would like to show you why setting up and online business is more feasible than setting up a traditional business.

Capital Considerations

You can start an internet business with little and, in some cases, no money at all. There are a lot of free and paid resources online to achieve the same end. They both have their pros and cons though.

With $47 per month, you can start and run a profitable internet business. There are other courses that cost a one time $37 and that is all you need to start. Compare that to a traditional business and you will quickly see the difference between the two. You would rather go online.

Learning Curve

With an online business, you can learn all your need within 30 days depending on the strategy you decide to follow. You can start making money within a short time as well. In a traditional business, it may take you a couple of months before you break even. Forget breaking even, just to do market research, or get your business licenced and all those compliance issues.

Automation Simplified

When you run a business online, you can automate your email marketing, product slideshow, acceptance of payments and a whole host of stuff. The point here being that a lot of the aspects of online businesses can be easily automated unlike the traditional businesses.

Outsourcing Heaven

When you run a business online and you have the money for it, you can outsource just about every aspect of it; web site building, hosting, email marketing, product fulfillment, customer support, accounting and so on. There are numerous outsourcing portals online with people willing to do work for you for very cheap prices but with good quality work.

When I look at just these few issues, I find that setting up a business online is a clear winner as opposed to setting up a traditional business. That is not to say traditional businesses are not profitable, it’s just that it is easier to start a business online than off line. I should know, I have both. In fact, I promote my traditional business largely using online methods than anything else. But in terms of setting up, the online business is easier to set up.
