You have definitely used the internet, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this article. And I’m sure you have thought of using the internet to start your own business at some stage in your life. But maybe some things like “technical” words and too much information coming your way at the same time have scared you off. To be honest I can’t blame you.
When I first started using the internet for other things than just Facebook and Email back in 2011, I was overwhelmed by “information overload”. I felt my mind was going to explode and I wanted to quit learning this new skill before I had even started. It was too much for me to handle.
I was on top of the fence wondering which side to jump down to – Try to open my own online business that I could work from home and earn myself an extra income, or the other side of the fence where I could just easily QUIT. Then my ego came to life. If others can do it then so could I.
With the insecurity that the world wide recession has brought upon most of us, having a “plan B” was really not an option, but a must. I knew my day job was not secure and that the best case scenario, my monthly salary was going to take a serious cut. I am sure you can relate to the overwhelming powerless feeling that I once felt.
Since the internet is a gigantic library, as well as a world-wide message board and publishing medium, it’s pretty hard not to want a piece of the action. But how do you use it to your advantage? Well for starters you already have at least some knowledge about something, whether it be a profession, a sport or even just a hobby.
Improving this knowledge you have with a bit more information from the internet, and an all-in one site-building software system that offers hosting and marketing strategies, then you too can be on your way to online success.
I have made it my goal to show and teach as many people, both online through the web, and locally, to start their own successful website so as to enjoy a better lifestyle from it. Having your own web presence is truly inspiring, and making an extra income from it – well that’s just a big bonus.
Let’s have a look at a few worldwide findings for the year 2012 before we carry on:
· 2.4 billion people worldwide used the internet on a regular basis
· 2.7 billion Facebook “likes” per day
· 175 million “tweets” per day in Twitter
· 4 billion hours of video was viewed via YouTube each month
· 144 billion emails delivered per day
· 135 million used Google+
· 634 million total number of websites until December 2012
· 52 million new websites added in 2012 alone
Are you now convinced that you too need to take advantage of the above stats? With a willingness to create something that is truly yours, and by sharing it with the internet world, who knows what you can achieve. You will never know unless you try!
