So many times we get opportunities where there is a need to do something that we have never done before. But due to some reasons we tend to shy away from such situations or opportunities thinking that it’s out of our comfort zone. Some of like to work in a known atmosphere and under the conditions that are comfortable for us.

For example, many of us do business and we wish that our business gets the recognition that we had planned for. We do marketing in a traditional manner that we feel comfortable in, but have you ever thought that there could be so many other ways that you could follow to make sure that your business is getting the recognition that it needs.

You might be a store owner or a professional who provides services to their clients. You start your business and your prices are decent. You have decided that you won’t compromise with the quality of the product or the service that you are offering. Do you think that’s enough for your business?

How to add value to business?

Just getting the right service and good quality work is sometimes not enough. You need to add value to your business and make sure that your product or service is reaching the target audience. Because what’s the use of your business if it’s not able to reach the potential customers.

You might think that getting a business card would be sufficient and you can even advertise in the newspaper to let the people know about your business. But there are so many other ways which are more effective than these .

Given our dependency on internet these days, you could even do online marketing. Some of you might feel reluctant as you don’t know how to do it? Or you don’t feel comfortable doing business online? But the truth of today’s time is if it isn’t online, it isn’t alive.

What is online marketing?

The name online marketing is self explanatory, it means doing marketing using the online platform or with the help of social media. In simpler words you can promote your service or product with the help on internet and cater to a large number of customers without having to do much.

Online marketing is very useful in marketing and of you used this tool in the right way then you can easily get the desired results for your business. This is a very affordable way along with that you can alter your business proposals or services without having to spend too much.

What are the advantages of online marketing?

There are many advantages of online marketing and if you have never used the internet for the purpose of marketing then its time that you do. You would be amazed to see to many benefits that the internet has to offer.

A few of the advantages of online marketing are
  1. Affordable and low cost:
    If you are looking to do online marketing then it won’t cost you very much. You can easily promote your business to a large number of people at a very affordable price.

  1. Analytics:
    You can easily get the data and statistical results of your business without any extra cost.

  1. More clients:
    Almost everyone is using internet these days and if you use internet as a source for your marketing then you can target a larger number of clients. You can even target people who are out of your demographic area.

  1. Flexibility:
    Online marketing is flexible for both the consumer and the business owner. One can publish about their products or services from anywhere and similarly the consumers can avail those services without having to leave their house.

How can you benefit from getting out of your comfort zone?

Like we said in the starting of the article, there are so many options we may miss out on only because we were too scared or not willing to get out of our comfort zone. If you have a business and you feel reluctant doing online business or online marketing then you really don’t know what all you are missing out on.

If your goal is to promote your business and reach a certain level. Then the first step towards it would be to stay motivated and be open to new things. It’s okay to feel reluctant but you should definitely try new options as it might open doors to new opportunities. If you have never tried to take your business online, then now is the time to do so.

All of the information I’m receiving is great and tempting if I had a great support team behind me that could understand my situation. I have too much going on right now to even try to get started. As much as I want to, it’s inconceivable with all that I’m going through. But, optimistical, and I still believe In miracles. And if I see one coming from your direction, I’d jump on it quick.


This was a very good article, it gave me some encouragement. I will do some more reading and some investigation on just what type of online business I would like, there are a few. Thank you
Sincerely Audrey

Mr.Hanson, the timing in which I received your article seems as if it has had some divine intervention. I’m starting an online business and yesterday afternoon I received an email with information about a marketing procedure to bring in clients. As I learned what it was I was going to have to do to implement this, it took all of the excitement, motivation and hope that I had been cruising on and blew the wind right out of my “sails”! No pun intended! So this morning when I read your article I felt like the Universe or something more specific,… Read more »

And internet marketing does present advantage, in scope. But, I have to determine what and where, of duties, to convert, replace, etc., to be effective in these business progression. This article has presented the valid question. ‘WHERE IS THE COMFORT ZONE ?’ ‘ And how to make one’ or ‘one’s’. NOT. BUT THAT’S BUSINESS. GETTING USED TO IT IS THE COMFORT ZONE.
Something to think about. Good article.
