How Great Is The Internet Marketing Business?

Beach 2How Great Is The Internet Marketing Business?


Last week my wife Brenda and I decided that it would be nice to have a few days holiday. Now if you work for someone else or you have a bricks and mortar business, taking a break takes planning. If you’re an employee you have to ask your boss if you can take some time off and usually have to give several weeks notice.

 On the other hand with a traditional business, it seems you have two options, close for the holidays or leave your precious business in someone else’s care. Which is OK if you have someone who you can trust to run the show while you’re away.

 In the past we had a shop, it was a good business and we made good money from it. The problem with it was that we were open seven days a week and 14 hours a day. The only day we were closed was Christmas day. As you can imagine it didn’t leave much time for a social life.

 We didn’t have anyone who could look after the business for us while we took a break, so holidays weren’t possible. We also found that it was almost impossible to predict when the busy times were going to be, so there were times when we could sit there for an hour or more and not see a single customer and then several might come in at once.

With an online business things are very different, you can work from anywhere in the world as long as you have access to a computer and the internet. You can choose when you work and if you want to take a holiday, there’s nothing to stop you.

 So back to our holiday.

We decided to have a few days away in the Lake District. We stayed in a lovely cottage and although the broadband connection was a bit slow, it was sufficient to be able to work without too much trouble. We were able to take our dog Ollie with us and went out during the day and caught up on work in the evenings. Now what other business gives you that kind of flexibility?

 Take today for example,

I’m writing this article sitting in the conservatory of a café next to the towpath of the Leeds/Liverpool canal, it’s a beautiful Autumn day, cold but bright and sunny.? We have just taken Ollie for a long walk and we’re relaxing with a coffee and catching up on today’s to do list.
