When the list of massive technological achievements and breakthroughs of the 21st century is recounted, the advent of the Internet is sure to be at the top. Technology has unveiled boundless new worlds of possibility for science, politics, culture, and commerce. Perhaps this last item, commerce, is the area that has been affected by the Internet in the most positive manner.
Think back to 100, 50, or even 20 years ago. In those days, when you wanted to go into business as a self starting entrepreneur, you needed massive amounts of money and a brick and mortar structure to house your new business in.
And, in fact, you needed much more than that. Unless you were already financially independent, you needed to take out a loan from a bank to get your business up and running. You very likely also needed a college degree, a fancy car, and an expensive suit of clothes, in order to fully “look the part”.
Those days are largely gone now. You no longer need to leave the comfort of your own home, or even your bedroom, in order to become a successful entrepreneur. The advent of E-commerce has completely changed the rules of the game.
Now, all you need to start your business online is a website to run it from. You have the choice of building your own site, or hiring a website design ecommerce company to do it for you. It is strongly recommended for beginners that you choose the latter course.Tags:business , ecommerce , online , web
