First, think for a moment about a traditional physical business.
Choose any store down the street you like or think about your favorite shop at the neighborhood mall.
Undoubtedly, it will have walls, a roof, carpet, employees, opening and closing times, products on the shelf (or some type of service that can be purchased), a cash register, counters, aisles, lights, bathrooms, advertising in the window, dedicated or shared parking outside, and many other things that all businesses have . . . or do they?
Try to imagine an alternative type of store with a single owner but no employees, no walls, no roof, no carpet, no bathrooms, no cash register, no counters, no aisles, no lights or other physical attributes.
But this new kind of store, a digital business, does have what you come looking for: products with descriptions and advertising, a shopping cart, a checkout and payment system, and all the help you want if you need it.
This store is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year.
There is no need to physically travel to this store; it is brought right to you, right to your computer screen with lots of sights, color, action and sound.
Can you imagine the advantages of taking a store into the home of the customer, both from the standpoint of the merchant and the consumer?
Can you envision the convenience of a store that never closes?
Can you grasp the possibilities for a small business owner that can promote and sell his goods or services non-stop, 24 hours a day, anywhere in the world?
Can you ponder the advantage of operating a store without employees to pay, without a building to purchase, lease, or maintain?
Can you fathom the freedom that comes with operating a business that doesn’t require you to be in one physical place all the time . . . or ever?
There are some additional reasons that digital business, and especially information publishing, can be “the perfect business” that anyone can easily start with minimal risk:
* The costs of starting a new business are very reasonable
* There is very little overhead or operating cost
* The products can justifiably have high value and mark-up
