If you want to make money Internet is a good tool. However it is only one of the tools. You can use this tool to start your business but to expend and grow you must also learn to think outside the box, the box being the internet in this instance.
One of the most successful enterprises we found in the Internet was an online food ordering site. Their greatest advantage was being the first site to think of this idea. Now that is the first thing we need, a good idea. They say great minds think alike. This means if you think you found an original idea, you may be sure that some other person at the other side of the world has definitely found the same idea. Ideas alone don't bring bread to your table. What makes an idea profitable is action. The owner of this food ordering site, after he thought of the idea, he acted on it. To act on an idea you must believe in it because action has a cost. So he bought a domain name and hosting and ordered the necessary scripts and web framework, installed all of these and made test runs. This was all he could do in the Internet. Now he had to go outside the Internet. Maybe he personally visited all the restaurants and fast foods; maybe he hired representatives and sent them to the restaurant owners. If there are no restaurants to order from, then there are no customers to use the site.
The membership to the site is free. When you order, you don't pay extra money for using the site. If your order is late you open a chat window with their customer relations and ask why your food is late. These are all costs. So how does the site make money? It takes a percentage from the restaurants. The money comes from outside the Internet. The owner of that site is now one of the richest people in the world.
If he didn't want to risk his money and build a proper web site, today he would be just another man who once had a great idea but didn't follow his dreams because he didn't believe in his own idea. Sometimes we hear people saying things like "I thought of using windows in an operating system interface." or "Facebook was my idea but I didn't implement it because I didn't have money." Maybe you are one of those people. The only difference between you and the people who succeed is that they believed in themselves and acted on their dreams. They took risks and tried hard to be successful. They also used the Internet only as a tool.
If you are really serious about trying to make money Internet may be considered as the starting point of your enterprise. To be successful you must use real life marketing methods and real life products. Once you find the best way to integrate real and virtual worlds there can be no obstacle to stop from succeeding.
