Reasons to start an online business

Today I will show you my top reasons why you should start your own online business. When I started I wasn’t sure if online marketing is the right thing for me but now I’m absolutely sure. I can live the life I always wanted to and I have enough spare time to spend it with meeting my friends, exercising or reading. Sometimes it can be really challenging but it is absolutely worth the effort.

Being your own boss

Do you like your boss? In many cases, the answer is no. If you don’t like your job or your boss you can do three different things:

a) you can live with it

b) you can change your current job

c) you can start being your own boss

So if you want to have a change you either have to change your job or start your own business with yourself as a boss. I always wanted to start my own company and be my own boss. So I can come in when I want, take a vacation whenever I want and best of all I can do whatever I want. I don’t have to do tasks that are meaningless.

If you start building your online business you can be your own boss. Of course, you still have to work but you have freedom. You are free from a job you don’t like and a boss you don’t want to work with.

Solid income

Earning good money while not working too much sounds unachievable. It sounds more like a dream. It seems like, that most of the people who earn solid money have to work a lot. So they have a lot of money but they don’t have much time. I always dreamed earning good money and having time to enjoy my life. And I found a way to achieve both. This way is online marketing.

At the beginning, it was a lot of work to get my business running but once it was running good I had much more time to enjoy my life. To travel around the globe. To meet with friends. And I also earn solid money.

I’m earning the same money my colleagues do, but only working half of the time. And there is no limit how much you can earn. There are bloggers out there who earn more than $100.000 each month. That’s incredible, isn’t it? And the best part is that you don’t have to work for money.

You have to work on your business and your business earns money for you. In online marketing, it is possible that you earn money while sleeping or going on vacation. So you can take a day off and still earn money. That is a fantastic feeling!

But I have to warn you, the success is not coming overnight. You have to work constantly on your business until it earns enough money. But once you reached this time you can live your life however you want to!

Time independent

Let me ask you a question, do you like being stuck in traffic? I guess you don’t. Nobody likes it. But since you leave work mostly the same time like everyone else you don’t have a choice. You will have a choice when you have your own online business. With your own business, you are much more time independent.

You will have a choice when you have your own online business. With your own business, you are much more time independent. You can go shopping whenever you want, you can exercise whenever you want and you can watch every match of your favorite club.

And in my opinion, the best part is that you can stand up whenever you want. If you don’t like standing up early in the morning you don’t have to. You can sleep as long as you want.

You can choose when you want to work or you want to do something else.

Location independent

As I already mentioned, if you have an online business you don’t need to drive every morning to work. You also never have to be somewhere to work. You can work from anywhere, you only need an internet connection. So you can work from home, the coffee shop or the hotel lobby. You can also work from your balcony looking at your city. Or you could work at the beach with the sound of breaking waves.

This is a part of online marketing I really love. Because when I feel stuck I leave my current place and go somewhere else. Maybe I continue my article sitting in the park. Or maybe I finish my article sitting in a coffee shop while drinking an iced coffee.

There are endless possibilities you only need to take the chance. I once wrote an article while sitting on a bench looking at the mountains. This was an incredible feeling. And I’m still excited that I can work from nearly anywhere.

Working on your passion

Work will be always something we don’t enjoy, right? I thought so many years. But when I stumbled across online marketing I had to change my opinion on that. Because now I was not only working for money, no I was working with my hobbies and interests. I work with topics I feel very passionate about. I don’t have the sad feeling on a Sunday that I have to work tomorrow, no I’m really excited. I’m excited to stand up in the morning and have a look at my business.

And I really enjoy every minute working on it. Life is too short to work on something you don’t enjoy. In this context I always remember this quote from  Steve Jobs:

Work will fill a large part of your life and the only way be truly satisfied is to love what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet keep looking. Don’t settle. – Steve Jobs

Whenever I hear this quote I’m touched. When I discovered online marketing and I created my first business I felt very passionate. And I still do. Every time I think about it I feel a power inside of me. And this keeps me going, in spite of every problem I’m challenging. If you want to work with passion you need to find your passion. And why not by starting an online business?

Low entry cost

Let’s say you made the decision to open your first business. Depending on your business you need to buy furniture, you have to invest in machines or you have to rent property. So you need a lot of money to start. Either you have the money on your own or you have to borrow some money. But what if I told you that you can start a business at very low cost.

In online marketing, you can start your business for as low as $2.75 per month. You can also start for free at Wealthy Affiliate. You also need a laptop or tablet and an internet connection. That is everything! Then you need to put in the work and write content. If you don’t have the time you can outsource that but you don’t have to. That means the entry costs of creating an online business is so low, that it is more expensive to drink coffee at Starbucks! 🙂

You only need to take the first step and start.


Online marketing is a future-proof workplace. Think about it, how much time are you spending on the internet? With mobile phones, it is even easier to access the internet. Also, there will be spent much more money online in the future. Think about companies like Facebook, Uber, Snapchat or Airbnb. Have a look at the net worth of this company. These are all companies who offer online services.

Online marketing is a billion dollar business. And you can have a piece of the cake, too. You only need to take the first step and start. If you have a solid online business you never have to worry again, trust me!

As you can see there are many good reasons to start an online business. What are you waiting for? Just take the first step and build your first online business. I never regret my decision to start and I still love the journey.

What do you think? Do you agree or disagree with me? Or maybe you have an additional point. I would love to hear your opinion, so please leave a comment below 🙂
