A different viewpoint of the internet

To make money online you will have to view the internet from a different viewpoint. Think of the internet is this marketplace where everybody gets together to exchange ideas, viewpoints, products and yes to exchange money. You can set-up your store in this market and people will visit your store with eagerness and available funds to do business with you. You can either sell your own stuff or ideas or you can sell someone else’s products or services. The internet is the easiest place in the world to start your business because you really don’t need to own a physical store and you can do this with minimum funds. Anything is possible with the internet as it has been proven time and time again over the past few years. The online economy has created more billionaires in the shortest time than ever before in humankind’s history. Think about Uber, Airbnb, Facebook, Instagram and Google

3.75 billion people on the internet every day

At first, the idea of doing business on the internet may seem daunting because it is such a vast, enormous market with millions of roleplayers. That right there, that is where the key is. There are a potential 3.75 billion people every day on the internet. Think of your likely income if all 3.75 billion people would like to buy from you! I stumbled by accident on the potential of the internet. I got involved with the internet business when I started to use Sage’s Cloud Based Accounting software in my accounting business. My business server contains all my data on which I had to perform services for my clients. The worst part was that I always had to work on the premises where the server was. If I had to finish a job, over a weekend, I had to travel to my office, far away from my family and sit there alone working, feeling sorry for myself. With the Online Accounting Software, I could access my clients’ books and finish the job at home, close to my family. As I saw the benefits of Cloud Accounting, I started converting my clients also on to the “Cloud.” By doing this Sage Accounting Software remunerated me for promoting their products and I started earning a commission. Then I realized I am onto something with really big potential and my journey of owning an internet-based business started. You can visit my online business at www.thefunacccountant.com.
