Standard Internet Business vs. Business with 4Sale4Now

internet businessI know what you’re thinking. This is the 4Sale4Now blog, so obviously we’re going to be promoting a 4Sale4Now business over a standard business.

It’s true that we think 4Sale4Now has the most revolutionary and exciting way to sell stuff online. However, some people would be better suited to a standard internet business.

Here’s how to tell which you are:

How Computer Savvy Are You?

You might be perfect for a standard internet business if you can:

  • Handle a computer well
  • Develop ecommerce websites
  • Set up merchant accounts on those websites
  • Promote your site
  • Organize products for sale
  • Take care of customer service
  • Handle shipping
  • Manage the employees you need

I know that seems like a lot and it sounds like I’m trying to present standard online businesses in a bad light. And, frankly, this list will scare off a lot of people. But, if you’re the type of person that can manage all this and get a great sense of pride and achievement from it, a standard internet business might be for you.

The list for starting a 4Sale4Now business is much shorter. You have to be able to:

  • Register on the website
  • Upload photos
  • Ship products

Time Investment

It takes a great deal of time to start a standard internet business, especially in the first year or so. You’ll be pouring hours every day into your internet business before even selling your first product. Before you can sell a single product you need to develop and launch your site. Speaking from experience that is an awesome task.

But the launch is only the beginning. Once the site is launched, your visitors will start finding bugs that you need to work out, features that you need to add, etc.

The nice thing about starting a standard internet business is that, once it’s established and you have reliable people running it, you can walk away from it and let it do it’s thing while you make money week after week.

Of course, at 4Sale4Now we’ve already done the monstrous “up-front” work so you don’t have to. If you have a product for sale and a photo of it on your computer, you can have it posted for sale in no time.

While you don’t need to invest a large amount of time, you do need to be consistent about the time you invest in your 4Sale4Now business. You don’t have to spend a lot of time every day, but you do need to spend some time every day.

  • Monitor products for sale
  • Find new products to sell
  • Test different discounts to find which makes you the most money

You’ll eventually hire someone to manage all this and walk away from your 4Sale4Now business just like you can walk away from a standard business.

How Much Money Do You Have?

This is the granddaddy of all internet business questions, and the one that stops most people from getting themselves a piece of the multi-billions of dollars that are spent online every year. And, the shaky world-wide economy isn’t helping matters much.

A standard business can cost thousands of dollars:

  • Hiring a designer to create the website
  • Hiring a developer to make it function properly
  • Hiring a marketing agency to promote your site
  • Merchant account fees
  • Web hosting

The list can go on. If you have a big chunk of extra money lying around, developing a standard business might still be an option for you. But, if you don’t have any extra money lying around…

You can start a 4Sale4Now business with very little money. In fact, as I’m writing this, we’re offering to let you post items for free. So, for a limited time, you can start a 4Sale4Now business for absolutely nothing.

Which is a better fit for you? A standard internet business, or 4Sale4Now?
