Getting a business off the ground in todays climate is something which can be extremely challenging, and only those with enough courage and motivation are willing to take part in such a venture. In addition to having some money, you would also need a stroke of luck which is something we absolutely have no control over. Also, one of the things about luck is that it can change in a split second. Therefore, investing your own hard-earned money into a start-up company might seem like a bleak prospect but after attending Business 2012 exhibition in London, I feel encouraged and determined to give it a shot.
The exhibition, for the most part, served as fertile ground for displaying start-up success stories. Apart from the more obvious ones, I was especially impressed with one example in particular, which in theory seemed like a model that is destined to fail, because at first glance, no money could be made from it.
Niche Website Development Ideas
The example in question was actually a series of websites which revolved around sharing stories, experiences and advice from people who worked in professions that are dedicated to helping others, while at the same time being criminally undervalued and underappreciated.
One site looked at medical assistant salaries and job prospects – have a look here. Following on with the medical format Nursesalaryguide.net offers a broader look at various nurse specialties from Registered nurses to Nurse Practitioners. The business idea is not limited to medical careers but they can highlight how strange little sub niches can actually prove to have successful and well followed websites. Both these sites make money from advertizing revenue and appear to be quite lucrative.
While there is a general opinion that the possibility of making money online has died down significantly, there are still exceptions which prove that a great idea can also be one that is financially successful. The only thing that is different is that it is a bit more complex to achieve good results than it was before. But, what I have been able to take away from attending Business 2012 exhibition is that there are still numerous ways of making money online, with little or no money needed to get your business going.
Everything still functions the same way, but you have to be more creative if you want to turn your idea into a profitable business venture. Also, one of the burning questions is: Is it worth it? And the answer is: yes.
There is really no limit as to how much you earn, but it’s not solely about the money. There are other benefits which are a lot more important. For starters, you will be your own boss. No boss breathing down your neck, no deadlines. You can’t get fired. You can choose to work from home, join a co-working community or rent office space. The choice is yours.
On the flipside, your income and your success is closely connected to your motivation and the amount of work you put in. But, there is something else about it. Once you are working for yourself, you will be more invested in it.
If you are working for someone else, especially if it’s a large company, you are completely detached from the final product. In fact, most people nowadays don’t even know what the company they work for does. The part where you see something you made make profit is one of the most satisfying feelings in the world, and you can feel it again.
