Is the future looking good for online business builders?
or should we take our virtual identities...and start to meet up in the real world? I've seen a few signs lately to indicate that the days of online marketing gurus are numbered and maybe it's time to pack up our bags and move into the real world to find customers... what do YOU think? Can we flourish 100% online or do we need some fresh air and real relationships to grow our business?
I still think we can make online only but it is always good to build some real relationships on the outside world as well. I think it depends on how fast you want to succeed or reach a goal. Me, I am trying to do both cause i have a certain 3 year goal that needs to be accomplished.
I think the email from the gurus have become a bit overbearing. They all offer extraordinary outcomes that are questionable in the least. Real world contacting may be the answer but it still comes down to the internet as a means of contact.
We can still build amazing relationships online and find customers who are ready to buy... The future is looking very bright for us
There is always going to be a need for online marketers, and the more technology pushes on, the more people will have access to (the internet) and the longer amount of time they will stay online during the day if it's convenient. So no fresh air for now!
I believe there has to be a combination of both online and offline business relationship building. There's no better response to someone seeking you as being able to speak to them face to face, if possible. If not, that's where technology allows for a personalized conversation, preferably through LIVE video chat.
With millions of people around the world searching the internet for answers to their problems there is no doubt that the future is looking good for online marketers.
As a retailer the Internet has saved my business as the price of rent for high street outlets is crazy. Add business rates and you are looking at a huge loss on yearly earnings.
If the cost to rent dropped then I would consider moving offline but right now it is the future.
I believe there is a very big future for online business buidling. In fact its more likely that offline businesses will start to move online. People are becoming more and more comfortable doing everything from behind their computer. Why step outside when you dont have to?
There is argument to say that some businesses do require offline relationship building as well, that is why attending events or conferences is important also.
Yes, I think so. The market will be good but there will be a huge competition too. For the past few years people showed much interest on it and it's still growing. But this market is mainly from the western countries. But in 3rd world countries people are not showing big interest on online marketing. But if countries like China and India could get a good growth in their economy........!!!!!!!, then every thing will change and there will be a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge market for this online marketing. The good news is these countries are developing now.....Who knows...In about 10 years!...Probably we need more people for this market only for China and India.
I think the future for online business builders looks excellent. For those who marketed online in the early days, things might not look as good. Then it was like the historical wild west in the US. Everything was open, there were no laws and the strongest (most savvy) prospered. Internet business has matured. The sheriff (major search engines) is enforcing new laws. So for those early marketers things may seem less than optimum, but for many of the rest of us, we see a whole new world of business. It may be more challenging and we may need more education, but that is not bad. In my opinion, trends are still moving toward more online business.
Bath Business Web are the Premier Online Directory service for the Bath and North East Somerset area, giving thousands of local people access to traders in their area.
I think that you have to have a good mix between both. Use the internet to network and to find your customers then actually meet up with them and do business. The internet is a tool, not a way of life.
Online business and real world business is the same important. We can set up widely connection online and trade with real world people.
I don't think the days are numbered but I think that certain companies will become even more powerful and many others will fall by the wayside

Is having an online business as the only source of income risky. Many people say they will love to quit their job for online business. Is it safe to do so.
