– The risk of getting infected with malware.
– We also have the risk of getting your website copied and plagiarized
The internet has opened lots of great opportunities for small entrepreneurs to start their online business from the web.
Some of these business opportunities are web designing and management, site development and many more.
Unfortunately, while doing online business can be successful, there are some risks associated with it.
Some of them are:
The risk of getting your website hacked.
This may sound strange, but it has happened to a few people I know. Their sites got hacked and they had to start from the scratch.
The risk of losing traffic
This can happen slowly, but sometimes, due to a reason or another, a site can loose traffic and this is not a good sign.
The risk of getting infected with malware
Web based businesses are very vulnerable to security threats and risks. Malware infection is one of them.
The risk of getting your website copied and plagiarized
A lot of people are very good at copying and pasting. They would go on to copy the work of others without proper acknowledgement. This is a risk you need to consider.
The risk of losing your main source of income
Anything can happen. In online business, there is no certainty as there are some market risks that you need to watch out for. Your online business can go down and you would no more receive the amount you used to receive before.
Change in technology
As technology changes, your web business may not be able to catch up to these changes and it may sometimes require resources that are way beyond the means of a home-based entrepreneur. copyright. www.naijapr.com
