Pure-Ecommerce-own-an-ecommerce-business
Pure-Ecommerce will soon be attending the International Living Fund Your Life Overseas Conference in Phoenix, AZ on November 12-14, 2015. We have attended this conference for the past several years and each time we meet many budding entrepreneurs who are searching for the right business to run as they live out their retirement abroad. They are wanting a business that gives them the freedom and flexibility to work from anywhere in the world. Not matter if you are a retiree, work from home mom or someone with the passion to start their own business – we would like to share with you five reasons an ecommerce business allows you to work from anywhere in the world.
First ask yourself these questions:
  • Are you ready to be your own boss?
  • Do you want to live where you like and travel when you want?
  • Do you want to earn an income from anywhere in the world?
Now that you’ve confirmed you would like the ability to be your own boss, while traveling and earning an income anywhere in the world. The next step is to examine what reasons make an ecommerce business a great choice for as you start a new chapter in your life. We’ve compiled a list of the five most important reasons an ecommerce is a good option for someone looking to live and travel while owning a business.
  1. Flexibility

Many people like the idea of owning a business, which gives you the flexibility to pick-up and take with you. Whether you have the desire to work from home full-time or have the ability to travel, no matter the reason an ecommerce business gives many people the flexibility they are searching for. As long as you have your computer and an internet connection you will be able to run your online store!
  1. Low Overhead Costs

This is a definitely a plus when owning your own business. Low overhead and low operating costs make an ecommerce business ideal for anyone looking to live or travel overseas. Many people are entrepreneurial minded, but are too afraid to take the leap! With an internet based business you have minimal start-up costs and low overhead. It isn’t as risky as starting a local brick and mortar shop where you have to pay rent, pay for products, and pay your employee’s salaries. An online business does have costs associated with the set up and management, but they are minimal compared to owning any other type of retail store.
At Pure-Ecommerce we build our internet businesses with all drop ship products. This means you, the online retailer, does not hold any inventory as the vendors will ship the products ordered directly to your customers. You can learn more about drop shipping from our information page, “What is Drop Shipping?”.
The combination of lower start-up costs as compared to other retail stores and by offering drop ship products – this is truly a “win-win” when starting an ecommerce business!
  1. Different Niche Markets

Want to love what you do? Have a passion for a specific industry? Well, these days you can start an online store in just about any genre you want. Whether it may be home goods, pets, baby, maternity, gifts, toys, and the list goes on and on…..You can start an online business in an industry which interests you.
Of course, our advice is to first do your homework! Make a list of the top five industries that interest you and then proceed with doing as much research on each one. You will want to look at the industry as a whole, as well as, product availability, growth potential and competition. Then select your preferred niche market.
  1. Sustainability

You will want a business that is sustainable. As long as you work your business it will work for you! Some people are under the impression an online business will work itself – this is not true. Like any other business, an ecommerce business has to be designed, loaded with products and built on a good foundation. Building a brand in which customers recognize is extremely important. Yes, it will take time to achieve brand-ability, but again, with hard work and dedication you can build an eCommerce business creating the outcome and having the benefits you imagined.
  1. Freedom

Yes, freedom! An ecommerce business does not require the owner to run their retail store from a physical location, but gives you the freedom to run the business from any location. Plus, it also gives you the ability to run the business on your own schedule!
 An online retail store is available to consumers 24/7. Unlike a brick and mortar store you are not required to be present to make a sell. You can be away from your computer and still generate revenue! Even though your store is open all the time, you have the ability to create a schedule to manage your store that works for you in any time zone. The key is allowing yourself the time to manage your business and not let your business manage you!

#ThisIsMyOffice – Owning an Internet Business Allows You To Work from Anywhere

Stop the Daily Grind

Where do you want your office to be? An internet business “opens the door” of being able to work from anywhere!

Are you already sick of winter?! Are you stuck in the snow? Are you at home, not able to make it to your office because of the weather, and all you can think of is everything you have to do at work? Do you need a change of scenery?
When you own your own internet business, your office can be wherever you are, you can literally work from anywhere! You can work from “home” whether that is from your primary residence, a hotel, on vacation, at a coffee shop, the South of France, or fill-in-the-blank! For this blog, we wanted to give you a “picture” of what your office might be like if you’re an Internet business entrepreneur. Can you see it? This could be you…..

Former Work Life – Corporate Grind

You may be one of the millions of people who have found your work life being in the “corporate grind,” working for companies where you are a small cog in the large wheel.  Maybe you drive 30 minutes or more in heavy traffic to an office that is a “cubical City” which is in a huge room with other people in many more cubicles. In this situation, there are never any private conversations held at work—everyone within 2 aisles in either direction can hear every word, if they’re listening. Rules abound. You can never leave anything out on the desk for privacy and security reasons. Sick leave and personal time off are very limited. And so on, and so on.

Work Life Now – Entrepreneur

And you are looking at purchasing an internet ecommerce business to begin a new life and chart your destiny. While doing your due diligence, you’ll get very excited about all the positives of owning an internet business—being the “boss,” working in a marketable industry, and having a flexible schedule.

Couple with laptop.At Home

You may decide to work from your primary residence most of the time. Envision where in your home you may set up the office.  It might be in a bedroom, a bonus room, or at the kitchen table.  You may want it to be away from the main activity of the home. Or, maybe you want to be where everything is going on. You’ll find a place that is suitable to run the business. Unlike your former life in the corporate grind, you will set up your office just as you want it to be. But, wherever you set up your “office,” guess what? There will be no more stressful commutes, no more holding your hand over your mouth while on a private phone conversation, no more taking 10 minutes to get all your papers out in the morning and then back into locked drawers at the end of the day. Your home office will be your space! For more information about business ideas for work at home jump over to http://pure-ecommerce.com/business-ideas-for-work-at-home-moms.html
