What is the Future for Online Businesses During the Financial Crisis?

The banks and the automakers received their bailouts, but what about you? Don’t hold your breath, it doesn’t look like the average Joe is going to get bailed out any time soon. The bank and auto bailouts were supposed to have a trickle down effect, meaning that when money is given to these organizations it was supposed to be used in such a way that it creates and stabilizes jobs. Instead, banks are sitting on the money, and automakers are cutting jobs just to stay out of bankruptcy. But don’t worry, there is a way to make it through the tough times. Have you considered looking into online businesses during the financial crisis?As things get tough, and more people lose their jobs every day, online businesses are booming! Unable to find work, many are starting their own online business. Let me use myself as an example. I used to sell new Ford cars. As the economic crisis worsened, I made less and less sales. I watched as colleagues who had sold cars since George Bush the first was president left the car business. Eventually, I had to leave as well. I just wasn’t selling enough cars to support my family. I searched high and wide for work, but no one was hiring. Out of desperation, I turned to the internet. Read more

My story: I invested $10,000 in blog advertising and got $50k back!

To say that I had been burned by internet advertising in the past would be an understatement. One of the first companies I ever owned, fresh out of college, was a dot-com. This was in 2000, probably at what most people would consider the height of the “internet bubble,” and it seemed like everyone and his brother was making a killing by throwing up their website and calling it e-something.

Well, I wanted in on the action, so with a $25,000 loan from my parents, my brother and I started an online marketplace for used arcade equipment. We used to love going to the arcade as kids, and we figured that we knew more about arcade equipment than almost anyone. Besides, we were getting the arcade units at salvage prices, refurbishing them (my brother is an electrical engineer), and selling them at a 200% mark-up. How could we lose?

Well, our first mistake was paying some outrageously expensive “design firm” $10,000 to put a site together for us. We chose this company because it came as an all-inclusive deal: they would design the site and handle the advertising. All we had to do was keep the content fresh and make sure that the arcade equipment was in working order. Oh, and keep in shape — we’d be running back and forth to the bank so much that we didn’t want to wear ourselves out!
