Starting a business is something that many of us aspire to. In fact, it’s thought that nearly half of young people today want to shun traditional employment to start up on their own, or to live the life of a freelancer with flexibility and control. Every year, over 600000 new businesses start up in the UK alone, in a massive variety of different fields.
Setting up an online business is perhaps one of the easiest routes that you could go down. They’re often a small investment compared to a company where you would have to set up a shop or warehouse, and you can often make a hell of a lot of money from them. You have the internet at your feet, you just have to know how to conquer it. But this doesn’t come without risk, because what many of you might not realise is that the internet is one of the most dangerous places for an online business. There are so many rules and regulations to follow, and it can be so easy for your business to come under attack. Not only that, but you have to think about how many online businesses you’re also going to be competing with, and will most likely do anything to knock your business down. So, without focusing on the negatives for too long, let’s show you the dangers an online business might face, and how you can prevent them.
