You may have noticed, like I have, that the internet is currently moving at a faster rate. Nothing on the internet moves the way it did ten years ago. Everything on the internet travels faster now and has led to increase of business opportunities too.
This can be attributed to the better and enhanced technology introduced to the world.
In recent years, the internet started housing businesses where all forms of buying and selling are made, with transactions happening at an even faster rate than what is seen on the traditional business platforms. E-commerce has reshaped the business world into an easier and more lucrative space.
The pace of technological revolution is much faster and wider in scope, plus a higher rate of acceptance and utilization. The induction of ecommerce has incredibly altered the traditional business methods with every process of a business transaction taking place online, most times.
Entrepreneurs have realized the importance of taking their business online for wider audience, improved and seamless service delivery, global and round the clock access for customers, flexiblity, increased professionalism, business automation and the opportunity to manage business from any part of the world. As much as this is good for entrepreneurs and customers, it is also a means to an end for job seekers. In that, the presence of many business types online translates to several additions of careers online.
According to Dean Kamen: “Every once in a while, a new technology, an old problem, and a big idea turn into an innovation”. On social media, there has been a blast of career turns and we see how people are adjusting to this by taking up trainings in online career courses and starting a profession out of it.
Also, a study by Experian Marketing Services explains that 27% of the time, people are online, browsing social networks. Additionally, according to Social Media Today, over 90% of small-medium businesses are using social media. Whether there is a benefit to the adoption of these careers is in no way to be doubted, because there remains a substantial influx of people into the online careers.
