We live in a strange time. If this covid-19 pandemic would happened just a bit more than 10 years ago, it would be like the 2008 situation. Everything would go to hell. But because many things can be found and bought online, people can work from home, schooling can be done from home, the world economy doesn’t collapse. Far from perfect scenario, but still very impressive.
A lot of business opportunities migrated to online world. Such as ordering food, groceries, utilities, running video conferences, video calls, schooling, visiting tourist places through virtual reality. You name it. And many already established online business flourished even more: online shopping, Youtubers, streamers, subscriptions to movies and TV series, pornography and online prostitution. To some extent even stock media gained some popularity.
Nowadays you don’t need a lot of marketing funds to get your business up and running. You just need a lot of time to get known on all social media platforms. As long as you have an interesting product or service, there will always be costumers.
Any business needs some time before it gets profitable. It could take more than a month, even a year or more if you make/do something very specific or over-saturated. For example, video production and photography is a kind of service that in many parts of the world is over-saturated. So it might take more time for the market to recognize your work and get used to your prices.
There is never too late to start your own business. Even if you are on a tight budgets, there are always cheaper options to promote and get your online business running. From websites, stock media, promotion, newsletter and design. Anything is possible. These are great times for online business success. If you are young or old, jobless or full-timer. Anyone can do it, as long as you have the willpower.
