Be an Internet Business Consultant
by Kevin Bramlett
As the numbers of people and businesses moving Online grow incomprehensibly large, more and more entrepreneurial minded people are turning to the Web to carve out a career or profession. This is a good idea; the Internet is a positively astounding breeding ground for new ideas, new service businesses, and an excellent way to test business models before committing to them with full resources.
By far, it seems the largest segment of new Internet workers are what I call generic Internet consultants. What I mean by this is that they are people with better than average understanding of html, or e-mail, or browsers. They consult with friends and small businesses on a wide range of garden variety Internet 'how-to' subjects, with typically small to moderate degrees of success (in terms of business revenues).
Unless you're a very gifted designer or programmer, chances are you are finding it hard to compete with the massive influx of new Digitally Literate who are marketing their basic Web services Online. With tools like Microsoft FrontPage, virtually anyone can be a web developer (maybe not an effective one, but a web developer none the less). How can you differentiate yourself from the crowd with your clients, and turn your Internet knowledge into a potentially very rewarding career? Easy - by focusing your attention on Internet BUSINESS Consulting.
While everyone is quickly learning the basic tools and techniques that are used on the Internet, a relatively small number of people are mastering the knowledge that is necessary to propel an Online business venture to success. By arming yourself with some specialized learning in this area, you can greatly increase your relative worth as an Internet consultant. Even a modest success in the Internet Business world today will ensure a steady stream of new customers, as most Online businesses are struggling to find a profitable stance to take in the swift currents in CyberSpace.
Here are some key areas to concentrate your efforts on:
Focusing your attention on Internet Business concepts, as opposed to simply Internet tools, is a major step. Everyone is caught in the spotlight right now, dazzled by emerging digital technology - but this situation won't last for long. Position yourself now for Consulting success in the future by mastering the field of Internet Business. And for those of you who aren't interested in being a consultant, remember that acquiring these skills for yourself means you won't have to hire someone else who has to get your own Online venture jump-started ;)
