    Hello, So, you thinking of starting an online business, it is a great idea.
    Nowadays, most of the people build a website by delivering useful information to prospects in the form of both video and text and the website should have a credibility content, and it should be easy to navigate and have clear calls to action to attract new customers to the business.
    Even, receiving customers and clients calls improper way can also make the business look unprofessional. The most important feature to attract clients is to get the best assistance by the receptionist. But as you said you are going to have an online business so, virtual receptionist can be a option for you which you can hire from serviced.com.au or any other popular companies offering such services to increment your start up business. I am sure this will help you a lot to get more potential clients and to have a good online presence.
    Along with getting services from a virtual office, the placing of advertisements in newspapers or magazines frequently read by customers can also be a cost-effective marketing strategy. Today, with the help of social networks and social media, like posting business content on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, or Twitter, can be an important use to boost your online business.

    No Risk, No business.. lol I mean no risk no game.

    Even If you found a competition less business then It will hard for you to establish your business because of It will be a new kind of business and hard to find financier, customer, etc.

    If you got success then other people will start same business and give you a competition but you don't like competition so your company will be kicked out within few month by your competitors who love competition.

    Online businesses know no demographics. Your reach can be on a global scale when you do things right. You can always look into drop-shipping. What business do you have in mind?

    If you'd like a business that appeals to the local market, you may want to consider putting up an offline business then marketing your products/services online through Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

    Hi, the way I understand your question, that being in a small town where you are now is that you are going to capitalize on your town's assets? Online biz has nothing to do with location, you know that right? All you will need is the internet.

    Where do you live? What kind of a small town is that? You can always do some alternative tourism if your town has something unique. If not, maybe you can create it? Or maybe your town has its own specialities like cheese or wine. There is always a market for something that cant be found at walmart or any giant supermarket chain.

    Any update from the OP? It's a great question, frankly quite easy to answer but we'd like to get more info as to what business you're planning to put up and how where your idea has taken you.

    An online business will be a great idea. The first thing to do is to know your market. What's everyone in the town is eyeing for? It could be gadgets related, clothes, shoes and many more. From there, you have to see a if you have the knowledge about the product or services you would like to concentrate for your online store or business. You should have a unique idea always to catch the attention of your potential market.
