Also welcome to episode 2 of this weekly internet business talk which is being broadcast on whatsapp and on our podcast website.

Today I shall be doing an introduction to the internet as platform. Before I do that, I want all my listeners to understand that internet business is not synonymous to fraud, scam or yahoo-yahoo

What is Internet?
Because our focus is on doing business on the internet, so my definition shall be a little different to what we all use to know…

Internet is a platform to showcase or display our products/services connecting to potential clients/buyers across the globe. It is also a marketplace to sell your products/services with the help of computer and internet connection facility.

Available business platforms on the internet
Here are few business platform available on the internet
* ecommerce
* Education/training
* Music/entertainment
* Broadcasting, news media & communication
* Transportation/logistics
* Politic/govt
* Religion/NGO
* Social media
* Public figure etc

Who can take advantage of the internet platform to reach
potential clients/customers
My answer is just anybody that believes in the power of the internet. About 3 weeks ago, I stumbled on a facebook adverts of herbalist selling his products/services on the internet using a professional ecommerce website well setup for that purpose.

See the detail below of how herbalist position his service/product on the internet using facebook and professional ecommerce website.

Are you a consultant, teacher, Clergy man, counselor, journalist, realtor, politician, musician, health worker, lecturer, engineer, motivational speaker, lawyer, car dealer, business owner big or
small or professionals of any cadre etc Just anybody in a genuine business can leverage on the internet platform to meet more clients and make more sales/money…

The irony of it is that, many people believe that if you claim to be doing internet business they misinterpreted it for fraud, scam or yahoo-yahoo.

We need to understand that, there is no business platform that there are no sharp practices as it is with offline, so it is with doing business on the internet. There are people whose motive is evil doing any business. So taking your business to the internet does not make you fraudulent except you are fraudulent in your product/service delivery.

Application of internet to our day-to-day brick and mortal business models
Bill Gate says
and I quote him “If your business is not on the internet, then your business will be out of business” end of quote!

Therefore, any business, career, ministry or person can adopt or apply internet to their day to day business activities. And internet can be applied to the following
i. Buying/selling i.e ecommerce
ii. Religion/ngo
iii. Politics/Govt
iv. Education
v. Training/empowerment
vi. Consultancy
vii. Banking ebanking
viii. Entertainment (youtube, Netflix, irokotv)
ix. Mass media (radio, tv & newspaper)
x. Social media (forum, facebook, twitter etc)
xi. Communication (GSM, email, SMS etc)
And lots more..

Advantages of doing business on the internet
i. Low cost of operation
ii. 24/7 access to service/product by customers
iii. Quick and speed service delivery
iv. Quick and fast communication with clients
v. Ability to access and market to large audience beyond
your geographical location.
vi. Easy way to grow your business
vii. Global exposure/visibility
viii. Business automation is possible
and lot more.

From the above explanation I have been able to establish why you need to embrace internet as a platform to showcase or display your product/service to massive potential clients/buyers within or
beyond your geographical location. Of course doing business on the internet may have it disadvantage, but advantages of doing business on the internet out-weigh it disadvantage.

Haven’t established what internet is, how to leverage on it to our advantage in the next edition I shall start a discussion on internet business model exposition then we shall begin to teach each business
model one after the other as time goes on.

Once again, If your business is not on the internet, then your business
will be out of business”
so say Bill gates

Therefore, think business, think internet…
