In this Tumultuous Economic Climate, Now is the Best Time to Start an Online Business
The recent economic downturn offers would-be entrepreneurs the perfect opportunity to start an online business, according to a leading New York website development and website design firm.
Today, as the economic downturn in the United States becomes more apparent, Peter Crisafi, Vice President of dzine it, Inc., a Manhattan website development firm with clients throughout the country, says businesses are downsizing, spending less money, and traditional entrepreneurs are more cautious about taking risks, there is one area where business development and growth is on the rise online.
While the economy has taken its toll on businesses that are now choosing to spend less money on growth and development, the time is right for those who are looking to start an online business, says Crisafi. There are so many reasons why an online start-up company is immune to many of the pitfalls that the current economic climate has created for more traditional businesses.
The most obvious reason for this immunity, according to Crisafi, is the low start-up cost required to start an online business.
All you really need to get off the ground is a good website and a smart Internet marketing plan, says Crisafi. It is certainly cheaper than the cost of renting or buying and office or storefront. Add on overhead and advertising and you are already in the red before you have even stocked the shelves.
In fact, if offering a product rather than a service, Crisafi notes that there is very little inventory necessary with an online business.
You can focus your money on building a website, marketing your business, and your stock can wait, says Crisafi. In addition, during a recession, people are searching for better deals and they are looking online for products and services. The timing is right to start an online business.
The Internet has become one of the most powerful resources for doing business, says Crisafi. Anyone looking to survive the current economic climate should seriously consider starting an online business.
