Do you have a business that needs more attention from potential customers? Maybe you already have a website, but it’s not doing what you hoped. Maybe there were things in the fine print you didn’t know you had to pay extra for. Frustrating!

Gone are the days when you would need thousands of rands to start up a business. Now, a computer and an internet connection are the only things you need. OK, not the only things you need – you need a website and online marketing to help you grow the business, as well!

It’s amazing how the internet and other modern technology has helped shape the world. You can now become wealthy or at least financially free at a relatively young age, compared to previous decades where most people made their fortunes later in life.

Many people are afraid of starting an online business. The fear of failure is real. But you have to forget all the reasons why it wouldn’t work, and think about the reasons it could work.

So, why is getting your business online the smartest move you can make?

There are several reasons why you should choose online in addition to, or even instead of, the traditional bricks and mortar format.

1. An online business is easy and cheap to start

Regardless of what type of business you have, or are thinking of, one of the most important things to consider first is how much it would cost to realize your dream.

Make sure you do your homework about what other setup costs you need. Not doing so is one of the main reasons of start-up business failure.

2. It’s easy to achieve exponential growth with an online business

One of the main goals of starting a business is to maximize profit and minimize loss.

The online side of your business is easy to maintain and fund, if you utilize the know-how of professionals who understand search engine optimisation, social media marketing, and pay-per-click advertising.

3. Your business is now open to a large group of people

An online business provides all the essential tools to better improve on your product or service sales while keeping it running smoothly at a low cost, and reducing loss to the bare minimum.

The internet is there to help display your products and services to over 3.2 billion customers around the globe – so, in the words of the POTUS – that’s YUGE!

It also has the ability to help integrate your website with social media and gives access to the most sophisticated and user-friendly marketing platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and so many others on the internet.

4. You have time to do things while still growing your business

Unlike the traditional brick-and-mortar business, the online marketing side of your business gives you time to attend to other issues of pressing need while you still grow your customer base and bank balance online. It provides much greater flexibility in your life.

Think about it – you might finally get to do all those things you’ve been missing out on, from simple errand running to travelling. You can still make money while you’re not at your work premises!

5. Your business is running round the clock

The internet is always up and running even when you are asleep. Once you have launched your website, not that much time is needed to maintain it. Your website guys will handle this for you while you attend to the other areas of your business.

You have the potential to get new customers 24/7, instead of relying on walk-in customers or word of mouth for a limited amount of time during the day.
