The digital revolution is happening right now. You are probably using a telephone with ability to surf, take photos, mail and sms everyone you know. Computers are smaller and have more and more abilities nowadays and are used everywhere from cars to refrigerators. All this has grown exponential in the last years.
Our society has gone through different phases due to economic, social and physical environment. The easiest phases to identify so far is the agricultural, the industrial and the service society. Within the service society has the digital world evolved. The numbers of people who do business over internet are growing at a rapid space and here is the key to the digital revolution. For those who understand that computers can be used for far more then playing games or spending time on social sites there are great opportunities to create a reliable online business.
Products and services are always essential in business and the core value, but the way we now can exchange them and distribute them are without many of the old limitations. You can also have a business up and running a lot faster and with less money invested then if you do everything offline. The time to reach momentum and break even is also a lot shorter in an online business when it is done the right way.
Let me tell you a little story as an example: i know a good writer who tryed to get hes first book published but get refused the whole time. He was not the kind of guy who give up so he finally found a great chance through the internet to print and publish hes books himself and at a very resonable price. That also included marketing through online book stores. He was able to sell more then enough to write and publish the second book in the same manner. Although hes not another Charles Dickens he has been able to develop hes skills and made hes writing avaliable to the public. Much of this has to do with us having access to everything through internet.
We dont need no middleman anymore and are more free to create and get our own products and services avaliable to others around the whole globe 24/7 day and night. As there are much negative in the media about todays economy i think we are in a breakpoint where those who are able to understand the digital revolution has great advantages.
Remember the old times and sometimes the good old times when we did everything by hand and had no or very little technical help. If we had some ideas of a business at that time it sure was complicated and expensive in many ways as every offline business are today. The most common is a mix between offline and online business, but if you has something to offer you should do it online because of the possibility to reach so many people with your offer.
There are many free forms of platforms you can use for spreading your word as with blogging which is a great way to let your audience know and trust you. Then you can take it further with offering what you has to sell. There are also the digital sale system which is a complete salesystem set up by professionals with education and resources needed to succeed.
Finally it is essential to get the bigger picture clear both in the shifting of the phases from agricultural to digital and also to have your own clear vision of what you want to do with your life and your unique talents and skills. Im sure they can be developed through what i have described in some way.
To Your Success
