Virtual Business An Online Digital World Of Massive Opportunities
There is simply no way of denying the incredible growth of opportunities that have opened up to us is recent years, and what better time than NOW to take a leap into the ever expanding field of Virtual Business.
|Your Virtual Business Could become Another Success Story Of the Digital Online Revolution|
Look around you, and you can see the rate at which just about everyone is switched on to the digital age, and are either listening to I tunes, browsing the web or watching YouTube videos....etc, etc, and this will only continue to increase at a huge rate, and this is why so many companies are starting up Virtual Businesses, as a way to tap into this huge Market....
I wrote a post recently called YouTube Search Engine Optimization tips, talking about how the Future of the web is Video / YouTube, and how the vast majority of online consumer activity will be via Video / YouTube by around 2017.
Everybody and Their Grand Mother Is Making The Virtual Business Jump!
The fact is that many companies are now "jumping online"and building a solid web presence, and this could only bring in a much wider consumer base.....More Customers.
Nearly every time we are in contact with a large company, small business, retail shop or brand, or need to get in contact with a Government department, they are always moving more and more of their work base and communications either onto the web, or through other digital and virtual applications.
Check out this incredible article by Nigel Fenwick called The Future of Business is Digital on the Forbes.com website.
In the article Nigel talks about how many businesses will be "out of business" or extinct, if they don't jump onto the Digital Bandwagon....ASAP......and this only further illustrates my earlier points regarding this huge seismic / digital / online shift, taking place!
This is a fantastic post by Nigel and it's well worth your heading over to have a read!
As far as the big move to a world of Virtuosity , the same applies to Big Companies, small Businesses, brands, Government departments, etc, hitting the social sites like Facebook and Twitter.....and this massive leap into the digital / virtual / online realm will only increase with even greater speed!
Some of The Main Reasons Behind A Virtual Business Choice.
(a). The first reason would be the ease and simplicity"
at which we can perform any number of Business / Social interactions and Transactions, via digital Online or Off line applications...such as Mobile phones(smart phones/ I pads/ Tablets, desktops, laptops, etc, etc,
What may have taken us hours to do(or even days depending on location and circumstances) just a few years back, can now be done in a matter of minutes....or even less..
(b). Another factor behind Moving to a Virtual Business environment, is Labor costs.Not only are companies around the Globe, outsourcing their labor around the Globe at an tremendous rate, many companies are now "downsizing labor costs" even further, by using numerous Micro Job / Crowd-sourcing Companies, where they can get things done for at an even lower hourly / task based cost. .
(c). A Major benefit Of the online Virtual Business Model - property / rental costs.
Something else that's happening "in a large way" is that far more companies are now giving their staff the option to "work from home" and set up their own Virtual office.....
Here's a fantastic article called Costs and Benefits- Advantages of Telecommuting for Companies on the globalworkplaceanalytics.com website.
The article does a great run down of all the benefits to the Outsource / work from home / Virtual Business model, and it lists quite a few benefits......including greater worker satisfaction, and of course the lower running costs of the business..
The article also includes any negatives, with setting up a virtual digital work environment or work force...including many Country, local and state laws and taxes that could outweigh all the benefits of setting up a Virtual Office Environment....
In some Office Based Industries, this is so common that I think it will soon become the standard across most, if not all Office Based Industries....
The benefits for both the employee and the employer, could be huge! The employee get's to manage the home duties whilst still getting all their everyday work tasks taken care of, all without losing precious hours of their day commuting back and forth to work..
Rental / lease costs and the cost of labor are the main "push factors" behind many companies adopting the Virtual Business / Online Business Model.....
So my prediction on this is that, virtually all Office Based Businesses and many other business and Industry Niches, will eventually adopt the online Virtual Business model.
Those that don't get a move on, adapt / adopt and "ride the digital road to the future" will be left on the side of the road, thumb out, hoping to hitch a ride!
