Celebrate The New Year And Seize The Day
Happy New Year! 2015 has come and gone – How do you measure success of the past year? January is a time for reflection and resolutions. Spring cleaning is just around the corner. Perhaps you have been thinking about starting a business, learning a new skill or changing your career path – the first step is always the hardest!
Consider these reasons for starting an ecommerce business in 2016:
Consider these reasons for starting an ecommerce business in 2016: The growth potential for an ecommerce business is hard to ignore. Online retail sales experienced double-digit increases in 2015 over the previous year. Deﬁnition: Retail sales are ﬁnished goods and services sold to either consumers or businesses. The retailing industry is the distributor of these products. Retail sales statistics are an important economic indicator. According to AboutNews consumer spending is nearly 70% of total U.S. economic output. Deﬁnition: Consumer spending is the purchases made by households and individuals to fulﬁll everyday needs, wants and desires. Every one of us is a consumer. The things we buy every day create the demand that keeps companies proﬁtable.
An ecommerce business has lower startup costs versus a brick and mortar business. Initially, costs are limited to the purchase of a website (either a new or existing business), monthly hosting fees (which are typically less than $20/month), and little to no overhead costs if you choose to run the business from home.
An ecommerce business can generate earnings 24 hours/day 7 days/week. Once your business is established you can sell anytime of the day or night – the store is always open! Ecommerce has changed the way consumers shop around the world. Internet Retailer predicted in October 2015 that 77.1% OF U.S. CONSUMERS with jobs would plan to go online from work to do some of their holiday shopping.
An ecommerce business can provide independence and freedom that a typical 9 to 5 job will not. You are your own boss and can choose when to work; early morning before the rest of your family gets going or in the middle of the night while everyone sleeps. Having this type of ﬂexibility cannot be quantiﬁed in terms of it’s value. You choose what works for you.
An ecommerce business can provide you a tax advantage. By being based in your home your business can provide tax relief from mortgage payments, utility bills, computers, and even furniture, which may be deducted from your tax liability. Check with your accountant to ﬁnd out more about how operating a home-based business will affect your taxes.
An ecommerce business can provide stability in knowing that you can never be laid off. In these times of economic change and companies that continue to downsize, you can be certain to make your mark and manage your destiny.
