I have really enjoyed this week in B 250. It seems a little bit strange, though. I always thought that it would be really difficult and confusing to create an online business. It seems really complicated from the outside, but now that I have started the first steps, it seems a lot easier and a lot more doable. Of course I am very early in the process, so it could still go south and get a lot more difficult. I think it was very helpful to learn about the possible business models for online companies. The introduction to Google Adwords was also nice.
Seeing a list of online business models with their descriptions was very good for me. It was actually pretty eye opening. Honestly, I never really thought of having anything other than the merchant model, and that was little bit intimidating because I am a college student and I don’t really have the money to buy up a bunch inventory. So it is nice to see that there is the possibility of just creating a blog website and trying to sell advertising space on the site.
Adwords is still a little bit confusing to me, although what I have learned so far is definitely more simple than I was expecting. Hopefully that trend continues. I am still not totally sure how the whole Adwords thing works, or what my business would get out of it, but I feel like it’s a pretty commonly used service, and that makes me feel better about it.
I have actually really enjoyed this lesson. I have been pretty busy with it, but I feel like I have learned a lot, and it will benefit me greatly in my future.
