Sometimes I am amazed at how long people have been in internet business. For example, my friend Lynn Terry who helps people learn how to make money online over at Clicknewz.com has been in internet business for over 13 years, which just seems amazing to me.
I personally started my internet business seriously in 2007, my website had been online since early 2001. Two and a half years seems like a really long time to me.
A lot of people might look at that and think, “Wow, all these people have such a huge head start. Is it too late for me to get online?” To that I say absolutely not! The internet age is really just beginning. This is still very much in its infancy, people are still coming online all over the world, handheld mobile devices are coming online in enormous numbers, mobile ecommerce really hasn’t even started yet.
So, to those people I say, No, we’re still in the beginning of this thing. There’s still plenty of time to get online and be early to the party.
As proof of this I saw something truly shocking today on the way to work. Here’s a picture…
I’m driving down Central Expressway in Dallas, Texas and I see a billboard in the middle of the highway for Host Gator. Now, this has got to be the clearest indication that internet business is about to turn mainstream that I can possibly imagine.
You wouldn’t typically think the average person running down the street would need to know how to register a domain name and get internet website hosting.
So, for that billboard to appear on the highway indicates to me that this whole thing is about to explode. I imagine everyone with a website, and hosting being so common that it pays to advertise on the highway. Once that happens, internet business will simply be a matter of how to increase blog traffic and match offers with buyers (which is all it is about now anyway).
I say to you we’re still at the beginning, but you need to go ahead and hurry, because if you don’t go ahead and take decisive action you’ll never get where you want to go with your internet business.
