Business is an indefinite market. Despite of the existence of sophisticated marketing tools to determine the exact wealth of a certain business investment, business is still an indefinite market where you are facing an undefined number of business competitors with unfamiliar or great strengths in terms of marketing their products. The existence of such number of competitors as well as the varying market conditions is just a few of the obstacles that you will meet as you hurdle your way to get a hold of even a meager share of profit on any existing markets.
On the other hand, the introduction of the Internet and E-commerce brought revolutionary changes in the business community. Although its arrival just paved the way for fiercer competition among online entrepreneurs and widen the indefinite number of competitors, it provided an opportunity for individuals who want to start their own business in a cost-efficient manner.
