Web Business Guide
Web based business may set you free from your location. It depends on the merchandise — if you have to manufacture the items you are selling, you probably have to stick near the source of the supplies. Of course, you may get the supplies everywhere in the world, but you end up easily to sort all kinds of hassles with regulations, postages and stuff.
Instead, if you are dealing something that does not involve you to manufacture anything, you can administrate your shop anywhere you have access to the Internet. Note that you can still sell physical goods, but somebody else takes care of manufacturing, storing, packaging and sending the items to the customers. You just connect the buyer and the seller, and hopefully get decent profit.
Situation is easier if you sell virtual goods, information or something else that is in digital format. Then the shop can be fully automatic, taking care of 90-99% of the cases and you have to concentrate on the possible problems and creating new sellable content or digital data.
You need to understand some basic Internet shopping principles and idioms before you can have a WWW storefront.
