The lack of consistent income is one of the hardest parts of adjusting to entrepreneurship. When you work a nine-to-five, you're getting a reliable paycheck every week or bi-monthly. You know roughly what that check will be and can plan accordingly. You don’t get that as an entrepreneur. When you work for yourself, you get paid when you generate revenue. Successful entrepreneurs have cracked the formula for creating consistency in generating that revenue. This isn’t a mystery. In a business, you get out of it what you put into it. So, if you ready to work and grow your business, here are three simple ways to create consistent income online. One of the beautiful parts of an online business is being able to create digital information products and courses. You can take your knowledge and experience around a topic and put it into a monthly membership program. Through software such as ClickFunnels (and others), you can drip that content over a period of time.

Article | August 23, 2021

The use of smartphone/mobile technology has become the new standard, permeating every area of life. As a result, it gave rise to mobile technology opportunities for businesses. According to Statista, there are currently 3.8 billion smartphone users worldwide, which equates to 48.20% of the world's population owning a smartphone. India, China, and the United States have the most outstanding smartphone penetration rates. Between 2016 and 2020, the global smartphone user base rose by 40%. WARC asserts, by 2025, 72% of all internet users will access the web only through their smartphones. With the primary data and projections, it is abundantly evident that mobile technology represents the future of the corporate world and commercial innovations. On average, in the United States, four hours of each day are spent on mobile devices, which account for more than half of all online traffic. COVID-19 created obstacles for many areas of society; many company owners encountered several difficulties operating their businesses because of the limitations imposed, especially small businesses. But, on the other hand, the pandemic provided an unprecedented boost to mobile technology opportunities in every facet of life. Mobile is gaining traction not just in marketing and retail but also in healthcare and education for convenience and safety reasons, and gradually gaining popularity. Patients could not visit their doctors during the pandemic but could communicate through text, virtual meetings, or phone calls. Similarly, the education sector saw a dramatic shift in its teaching framework when everything went online. With the increased use of mobile to link teachers and students, mobile technology became an unavoidable factor in the education sector. Save Time, Save Money The potential of mobile technology is evident when it saves company owner’s time and money. For example, apps replace paper forms, cloud solutions replace resource-intensive local filing, and scanning and image functionalities assist field-based customer or supply chain personnel. From mobile applications to the operating systems of mobile devices, there are various ways that mobile technology helps businesses save time and money. Here are few benefits of mobile technology how they reduce business expenses and time. Online mobile apps have reduced offline paperwork. Mobile communication does not include any additional expenses, such as those associated with setting up a landline connection. Even without being on-site, you may place or confirm business orders over the phone. You may use mobile banking applications to send and receive paychecks or any other type of payment without visiting clients or banks. Mobile technology is vital in business, from texting to phoning, sending voicemails, or recording them using VoIP. Cashless Payment Options Mobile technology opportunities opened a door for cashless payments. All these years, opting for this mode of payment had been just an option, but it became vital during coronavirus to avoid spreading the virus. Both online and contactless payment methods gained popularity among both company owners and consumers. With social distancing norms in place, more individuals in established and emerging nations began to embrace contactless payments as a safer method to handle their money According to Finaria.it, the worldwide digital payments sector is anticipated to reach a value of $6.6 trillion in 2021, a 40% growth in two years. Furthermore, by 2025, mobile payments are expected to nearly double in size and reach a value of $4.6 trillion. Numerous payment methods exist, including mobile wallets, peer-to-peer mobile payments, real-time payments, and cryptocurrencies. Contactless payments are significantly faster than conventional modes of payment. Mobile payments generate extra data on a user's habits and interests, which might benefit your marketing team. Remodel Shopping Experience The pandemic devastated in-person retail business, and they had to re-establish themselves in the market. Many consumers are comfortable getting access to a personalized in-store experience via mobile devices. In 2016, 209.6 million Americans shopped online at least once, according to Statista. The number of online shoppers is anticipated to reach 230.5 million by the end of 2021, making the US one of the most developed e-commerce industry-friendly countries. Looking at the above statistics and the customers' needs, entrepreneurs must meet consumers' demands and help them research, find, and compare items. However, as rising mobile components alter retail, it is critical for businesses to maintain their privacy. Mobile technology potential is vast and can offer several benefits to consumers. In addition, entrepreneurs can incorporate it into their businesses in an inventive way. Maintain Orderly Physical Spaces QR codes date back to 1994, but they never acquired widespread acceptance or were widely used. However, the pandemic's onset altered the entire situation. Because the COVID-19 standards for maintaining distance, avoiding physical contact, and exchanging anything were deemed hazardous, consumers began to prefer digital connections over physical ones. That is when QR code-based payments became the most convenient payment method, requiring only the use of a mobile device. The pandemic has created unprecedented opportunities for touchless technologies (QR Code being the leading player). According to a recent poll by Statista, an estimated 11 million homes in the United States alone were predicted to have scanned a QR Code in 2020. This shows an increase from the projected 9.76 million scans performed in 2018. QR codes are used to make payments as well as place orders. Elimination of physical touchpoints from your business provides a more seamless experience for your consumers. Winding Up While the utilization of mobile phones or smartphones is not new, the manner they are used has evolved considerably over the previous five years, particularly during the pandemic. Indeed, the mobile phone has evolved into the most helpful tool/asset for information, communication, purchasing goods, and scheduling. Rapid advancements in cloud technology increase corporate use of mobile devices by enabling more flexible working habits and remote access to services.
