Brick & mortar business or a online business,
what is the best option for you? That what I will do my best to clarify in this blog post.
To begin with,
what is a brick & mortar business?
Basically a brick & mortar business are companies that have a physical shop and offers face-to-face customer experiences. The kind of store and business that you can visit physically in your nearest town.
So brick & mortar business or a online business? What should you choose if you are thinking about starting a business and must choose between these two types of businesses? Well first I will now reveal the advantages and dis advantages about the two types of businesses, brick & mortar business and a online business.
The start up of the businesses
The start up cost for a brick & mortar business are often higher in comparison with starting up/ joining a online business. By starting a online business you can work from your home you do not need any particluar facility to get started with your business. If you own a laptop you have even more freedom by just taking your laptop and this way your business as well, anywhere you will travel. Most online businesses doesn’t require you to have any stocks of products atr home, well some do like for instance in the niche of weightloss and health where autoship may be involved. Brick & mortar businesses has their own advantages as well… If you choose a good location for it where people knows who you are and trust you then that is a good start for your brick and mortar business.
Your promotion of your brick & mortar business can run by the talk of the town so to speak. The word about your new business get spread by the people living at this location. from mouth to mouth. Marketing a online business I believe is easier because there are so many ways to promote such a business and reach out to so many new people online. Saying that I am not suggesting that it is impossible to promote a brick and mortar business effectively online.. I just like the idea of online businesses and online entrepreneurship and helping new people online is more fulfilling for me then having a brick & mortar business….
Online marketing is hard?
Yes online marketing can seem difficult for starters and sometimes it can be a struggle to get results through online marketing, but it is worth it in the long run, if you ask me. When you reach success and everyhting runs smoothly you’ll be glad that you didn’t quit. The disadvantages for both types of businesses I would say is that at the start the owners of it will probably work late hours,but on the other hand they should be willing to do so because having that business should be like a dream coming true right? Regarding the choice between brick & mortar businesses, you also must simply trust your “gut” your gut feeling about what type of business you feel is the right one for you…
