Part of taking care of the administrative side of things would entail something like getting listed on a platform such as nj-licensed-casinos.com if you were in the online casino business, which would not only signify your online business’s legitimacy, but also endear it to those who are specifically looking for the products or services you offer. In this particular case of course that’s the service of offering an online betting platform which gives gamers the peace of mind of knowing that they’re trying their luck and perhaps testing their skills on a licensed online casino platform.
Unless you’re expressly targeting a specific market to eat into or indeed if you’re coming with a business model that services a completely new market that has been screaming for your offering, these days as easy as it is to start an online business you’ll probably have a hard time turning it into a runaway success. Relative success is okay either way, as long as it’s enough for you to be able to reference as a meaningful living.
The reason why it’s perhaps so easy to fail at what could very well have been a solid online business blueprint not too long ago is because it’s just as easy to erect an online business. Think about it – for every membership site which could have taken a team of professional software engineers to develop, there is a lone coder out there in a place like Thailand for example, for whom a singular US dollar goes much further. This type of programmer would be happy to sell their complete membership site solution at a much lower price and target sales volumes as opposed to going for value in scarcity.
And who can blame them? What it does mean however is that pretty much any type of online business can be erected on the back of merely buying it’s source code or deployment-level code from its developer(s). You’d then proceed to buy a domain name and pay a monthly web hosting fee which offers all the features required to operate your web based business website.
So what sets online business successes apart from all the many failures then, especially since the numbers aren’t even close to being accurately represented in their entirety?
I mean as much as there are indeed millions of online businesses that fall by the way side, which owner of any of these failed businesses is going to willingly come forward and announce that theirs was just another colossal failure?
What sets successful online businesses apart from the many failures though is the legitimacy that comes with taking care of the administrative side of things. After all, if you’re running something like an e-commerce website, at the end of the day it’s still a store, which means that it’s a traditional business with business expenses and overheads, income (hopefully) and perhaps even a payroll of staff. It would still need to be operated as such…
So it doesn’t start and end with deploying your e-business-in-a-box. That’s only the beginning.
