Why do you prefer Offline to Online?

15 replies
I have no opinion on this matter as I have yet to be a success in either but I want to know why everyone on here likes Offline.

There are good and bad sides but a lot would argue online is way easier.

What's your opinion?

    1. Because I set my own prices, meaning my earning potential is as high as I want it to be

    2. The lure of being CEO of an actual business with actual employees was too hard for me to resist

    3. You need to get out there sometimes and shake some hands. There is always the chance to make alot of connections which leads to alot more deals etc...

    4. The amount of work you do is minimal compared with other online stuff

    Really, offline is the route to go if you have a strong work ethic and the willingness to make alot of money and fast.

      You're tempting me already, is it just me or does it take a long time to be financially safe enough to employ people, do you currently do it?

    Currently I employ 5 sales reps.. all of them on hourly wages.

    Your success in this field really comes down to how well you market your own services. I mean, here we are on a fourm full of SEO experts that preach the luxury of being number 1 on google to business owners, but how many people can say that they actually use their own skills to put their own websites on the first page of google.

    The stronger your own marketing plan, the sooner you'll see success.

    Because offline is faster and you can more easily create your outcome. Online is a "maybe it'll work"...Offline is a "this will definitely work if I keep at it."

      I could be doing this wrong. I find offline tougher and more stressful than online. But the returns for me have been far higher. And I like the firms that I get to work with.

    I have been successful off-line in a couple different careers, but I just needed a change. That's why I got involved online and, brother, I ain't never going back to offline.

    In my opinion there's benefits choose offline / online

    Online benefits :
    we can do our job without deadline... and we can stay at home... without go to office.

    offline benefits :
    we can interacts with other and get so many friends.

    that is my experienced as long as i do offline bussiness....
    actually i do online business because i feel excited.

    offlline is real business as opposed to "hoodwinking" people. It's about relationships and reputation.Works both ways. How many customers wil lscrew you via email/online without a seconds thought would never have the guts to act that way offline as well.

    It has to be win/win. and some of those offline busineses make huge money and wil lthink nothing of shelenig out for a win/win proposition. Much more professional. REAL business as oppsoed to the B*S* scam online wordl (especially AFF. marketing)

    You have more control offline. No aff manager deciding not to pay you or G. banning you etc...I have had enough of online. Burnt out neve rto go back. Riddance to it. Scam or be scammed al lthe time.

    Online = tricking people (often depserate to work form home mums)

    Offline= real busienss. You can't lie or hide behind a hyped up sales page and then simply say "you have to work it" when you have been touted out.

    Not all good. Some tough apsects but generaly more sustaianble and pleasent way to "live"...I.M.H.O.

      I found online to be a bit of a lonely business, yes it's great that you can choose your own hours and all that other stuff, but getting out and meeting and helping business owners and being part of their success, and getting paid well for it, can't be beaten in my mind.

    For me it is the stability, you can have a good idea of your income at the end of the year.
    Also less competation to rank Kw, and nothing is stoping you from geting clients in other Countries .

    I would say both is easy if you know how and what to do. Both are important if you want to rank well and fast.
