Whether from necessity, needing a challenge or pursuing a dream, owning your own online business is a great investment!
Were you born in 1964 or before? Are you lucky enough to be a part of the baby boomer generation? If so, we would love for you to consider some of our online business ideas for baby boomers. Baby boomers have proven themselves to optimistic, achievement oriented and a generation that loves to explore and push boundaries.
Boomers value individual choices and freedom and because of their positive attitude, willingness and ability to adapt to new opportunities and the confidence in their abilities, Pure-Ecommerce believes they make excellent ecommerce entrepreneurs.
Baby boomers are concerned about health and well-being and because of this we’re living longer and longer. But, because of a sluggish economy, rising health care costs and the always uncertain availability of Social Security boomers are concerned their retirement savings won’t be enough to allow them to live the lifestyle they’ve been counting on in retirement. Many baby boomers are taking the bull by the horns and starting their own businesses to supplement their income and ensure the ability to travel, explore and do all the things in retirement they’ve been dreaming of.
Minimal investment and a manageable work load!
Many baby boomers are discovering that starting an online business takes minimal start-up capital, especially when compared to a traditional brick and mortar business. They’ve learned that ecommerce businesses allow you the freedom and flexibility to travel and work when you want. They can still explore, visit the grandkids and volunteer all while managing and owning their own business. Like any other business, an online business will not work itself, boomers know they will have to work their business but the benefit of an online business is you’re the boss and you decide when and where. All they need is a laptop, a phone and a connection to the internet so look out world, here they come!
Forecast = Continued Growth
Global ecommerce is growing – all countries are seeing growth in online sales. Shoppers prefer the convenience of 24/7 online shopping. They can shop from home, work or on their phones and products are delivered directly to their door. Who wouldn’t love this? Marketing Land reports significant increases in online sales that traditional retail just isn’t seeing. Ecommerce revenue reportedly was up 10% in February 2014 over 2013 numbers. Continued growth is projected through at least 2017.
