A little less than a century ago, ordinary citizens in America noted the ideal of the American dream. Since then, the concept of achieving prosperity, wealth and happiness has remained a motivating force amongst many. Although much has changed since the notion of the American dream was first realized, the dream itself has stayed firmly rooted to its original convictions.
Many have achieved the prosperity they sought by taking the leap into entrepreneurship and starting their own business. Such endeavors have always contained an element of risk, but now, the weakened economy has cast a dark cloud of perilous uncertainty across the landscape of brick and mortar stores. Instead, aspiring entrepreneurs and already well-established corporations are realizing the advantages of today’s technology-driven world and exploring the benefits of eCommerce.
Over the past decade, eCommerce has proven itself to be a viable growth industry, Online spending has risen significantly year after year, and online business (e-business) websites are populating the Internet in vastly increasing numbers on a daily basis.
In fact, it seems like everyone is talking about starting an e-business. With eCommerce software available for purchase, even individuals with little web experience are managing to create and run an e-business. Unfortunately, many who delve into eCommerce fail to realize that simply creating a website and having a product or service on hand will not necessarily translate into a proven success.
As with any business venture, a number of factors must be considered. Take the time to do research and create a business plan. Is your product or service unique? If not, how much competition exists, and what sets your product apart from theirs?
Additionally, why will customers visit your website, when there might be tens, hundreds, or even thousands of similar websites to choose from? Will your e-business even be found amongst the masses?
