Internet business as an actual business today
Let's say that you have the desire to learn and see opportunities. It remains to choose a field of activity that is not only able to bring good income, but also has prospects for development in the future, and will also allow you to survive in the market for a long time.
Areas of activity
Topical areas of business today, as always, are trade, manufacturing, services, agriculture. Each of them has its own characteristics, pros and cons, being guided by which, you can make the right choice for yourself.
In trade, it is important to be able to find suppliers with the lowest prices. The only drawback in this type of activity is the need to make constant purchases, respectively, you need to have a cash supply available. Although suppliers today are ready to make concessions and make a deferred payment until you sell part of the product. With a skillful approach to trading, you can earn 100-200% profit. Let's take a look at specific and relevant business ideas as an example.
Focusing on the needs of a modern person
Increasingly, people began to gravitate towards comfort, the standard of living in Russia has increased. Therefore, relevant products, such as bedding, will be in demand. It can be purchased in bulk from manufacturers and sold in your city for a market price, which is usually twice as high. The same can be said for furniture. Factories for its production will only be happy to open a new outlet and delegate all the authority to sell to you, especially if the goods of this factory are not yet presented in your city.
There will always be good purchases of goods that satisfy basic human needs: food and clothing.
Can be viewed as a commodity and drugs. Raised on advertising, active and always capable, modern man needs them no less than food and clothing.
Trending ideas in production
You may be surprised, but a lot can be called production. The main thing is to follow this principle: you take raw materials and create a product out of it. Even if you take ready-made tomato paste and add a little salt, a couple of spices to it, call it ketchup with the original name and pack it in your container - this activity will be considered production. Moving this way, you can get a profit of up to 400%. The most relevant business in this area is an atelier or a bakery.
Winning Ideas in Service Industry
Undoubtedly, the most relevant business today is business on the Internet. The World Wide Web has drawn billions of people and created all the conditions for it to appear. Direct sales to buyers from other countries are now possible. Busy people got the opportunity to buy without much time, which means they began to buy more often. The consumer audience has become hundreds of times wider. Isn't this wonderful fact favorable for business development ?!
Many people fail to imagine how you can run your business on the Internet and how you can make money THERE. The main mistake is that the formulation itself - business on the Internet - is incorrect. The Internet is not another space, it is just a means of communication:
- When you advertise a product on the Internet, you communicate with a potential buyer in absentia.
- Through the site you keep in touch with the customer again.
- Through the form of instant messages, your manager communicates directly with the buyer.
Here you can track statistics of the behavior and opinions of your customers, make accurate analyzes and accurate predictions based on them. Thanks to the Internet, it became possible to combine all types of advertising together: audio, video, photo, text. With its help, it became possible to hire employees for remote work, which means not to pay for rent. Therefore, absolutely all spheres of business, from small to large, have plunged into the world wide web today. And we will tell you only about those companies that do not require anything other than the Internet.
How to create this topical business today?
As mentioned earlier, the internet is just a way to communicate. But this method of communication allows you to achieve your goals and objectives in completely different ways.
Here are some examples of current businesses today:
- own sites;
- provision of services for the creation and promotion of sites;
- trainings and training;
- consultations specialists;
- provision of services not related to the Internet.
Sites make money from advertising or selling their services. Create a site that people want to visit and advertise another firm there. The higher the traffic to the site, the more profit from advertising. Profit from this form of business is obtained in two ways: a stable payment for advertising or a commission on sales. I fully disclosed the model of building a business on my own sites in the cycle: "How to create a site on WordPress and make money on it"
Provision of services for the creation and promotion of sites
While there is a need for sites, there will be a need for services for their creation. And since the competition is growing every day, the need for promotion is simply necessary. It is not necessary to be able to do all this at once, you can start with a small component:
Today many Russians prefer not to work for an uncle, but to open their own business. Such a decision must be made carefully, assessing the possible risks, drawing up a detailed business plan and conducting market research, and not just opening a retail outlet or a hairdresser in the first room that comes across with the hope that everything will be fine. In this article, we will consider what types of demanded businesses exist in Russia, what you can do and how much you can earn with the right approach.
Some subtleties of doing business
First, let's define what can be considered a profitable business, since every person has a different concept. It can be considered profitable if:
- Constant, stable, predictable income is being delivered.
- The case does not require the constant personal presence of the manager, that is, it works in a passive or semi-passive mode.
- The goods or services sold will never saturate the market. It is one thing if you sell woodworking machines in the steppe, it is another thing if you sell food in a metropolis.
In a word, we can say that a profitable business is a predictable business that does not depend on crises and political changes. Next, we will consider some of the nuances of doing business in Russia, which must be taken into account at the planning stage:
- Finding worthy employees will not be easy in any region of the country. In big cities, people will not work for low-average wages, and offering a large salary will not guarantee that an employee will responsibly perform his tasks. In small towns and villages, the irresponsibility of the population is very noticeable - workers may not go to work or disappear for several days.
- The Russians are inherent in collectivism, they rarely take responsibility and prefer to let things go by themselves. Many employees are not interested in self-development, believing that it makes no sense.
- There is practically no Win-Win working scheme - everyone operates according to the Win-Lose scheme. Be prepared for the fact that everyone wants to "throw" you, from suppliers to customers.
- The level of corruption in Russia is quite high - get ready for regular inspections by numerous regulatory bodies and their work aimed at extorting a bribe, not the result.
- Small business is practically not protected by the state. He does not receive loans at favorable rates, there are practically no programs for support in the country, and a profitable business may well become unprofitable after the next change in legislation.
If the points listed above do not scare you, then you can probably build something that works, because a business is a regular struggle for life under the sun.
Small Business Activities
In Russia, the so-called middle class is engaged in small business, the income level of which is more than 50 thousand rubles per person. It provides jobs, provides tax revenues, develops settlements and helps the country in every possible way, maintaining economic stability. But this does not mean that he enjoys the support of the government or officials - practice shows that everything happens exactly the opposite.
Despite the regular insertion of spokes into the wheels, small business stubbornly makes its way - even as a result of the crisis, the number of individual entrepreneurs and LLCs with a low level of turnover has practically not changed.
