The year 2016 was an exciting one for business. But here at Home Business Trends, we don’t want you to get a sense of what’s going on. We want you to get a sense of the types of business trends that are going to be going on in the coming year.
It’s all about making money and spending money. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make money with some other types of business too. According to a recent study, one in eight businesses was an e-commerce business in 2016. That is an astonishing statistic for 2016, and it shows that e-commerce is the future of business. It’s a little scary for many people because their biggest business tool is Amazon. But that tool is not just for shopping. It’s also for doing business.
Its great that e-commerce is so big right now. But the sad thing is that not many people are going to make money from online businesses. In fact its estimated that only 15 percent of all businesses will grow into e-commerce. But that is good news, because it means that we’re seeing a shift in the way people spend their money. When you spend your money online, you are not just spending it on something you can carry around in your pocket.
As a business owner, you have to make sure you are spending wisely. For one, there are some things you can’t buy online. For example, you cannot buy a car on Amazon or eBay. Also, you are not allowed to buy a plane ticket online. So you have to be careful about your spending choices. Even when you have the best credit rating and can afford to pay cash, many online businesses will not take credit cards.
Money online is a very fast changing field. The most recent study on money online found that the top three online companies are Shopify, Amazon, and Google. Shopify has seen its market share drop from 70% to about 65% in just six months, while Amazon has seen an incredible 30% market share in just six months. Google has been around since 2002, so it gets some of the credit for the growth of the online world.
The first thing that comes to mind is that the top three companies will continue to grow in the next year or two, especially as the economy and technology changes. So the next question is whether or not you should be taking out loans, putting up equity, or buying stocks.
No, it’s not the stock market. The stock market has been doing great over the past few years, but it’s not a good thing to let it go to waste. There are a few things that can cause the stock market to lose value, and these are: poor management, weak growth, and excessive speculation. Since the stock market is the last place you want to be, you’re always going to see these things happen.
If you have $100K you want to put into stocks, you better have a compelling rationale. The reality is that most people have no business putting as much money into stocks as they do. I think it is much more important to invest in things that will provide you with a return on investment than it is to just put all your money in a bunch of stocks.
I’ve been doing a lot of research on the 2016 business trends. You can look at our annual report for 2016 and see what we’ve been up to. The good news is that you can’t see that report every year. The bad news is that it will take you a year to see how things have changed. Which is why we’ve created a tool that will show you the 2016 business trends for every company in the Russell 3000 Index.
