Digital Era Vs Industrial Era

Digital EraThe perfect dream of working in a secure job these days is slowly and increasingly getting popular according to the number of people who are looking for other ways of making an income outside of their jobs. A lot of people have become aware of the ever increasing job demands which are overwhelming when compared to what the pay is and it does seem that it is becoming an exhausting experience from putting more time and effort than ever before and not get any time for family life and just live a moderate lifestyle.

Are you one of those people who end up falling into one of those contemplating moments?

Especially when you are stressed out at work, wishing that you had more time for your family and yourself?

Wish you could just run to the beach and relax under the sun, picturing yourself with your loved one and taking a sip of an exotic drink, enjoying each other’s company with smiles filled with happiness and joy… and with a blink of an eyelid you get back to reality again and stare at your computer screen filled with numbers, spending hours calculating those boring financial statements for some executive in that little cubicle of yours and you got another 5 hours to sit in there and work on more numbers!!!

There are millions of so called ‘office slaves’ who are married to their 9 to 5 jobs wishing they had something better, but don’t think they have any other option than to suck it up and stay in those jobs for the fear of becoming jobless and not having money in the bank and becoming broke and also the thought of going through ALL the education, spending ALL that money and time to finally get that JOB and still not be happy with it.

In a nutshell, no matter what degree you hold or years of experience you have, everybody is in the same cycle of working 9 to 5 or 9 to 7 shifts or even longer for some folks and just have two short days called the WEEKEND which feels like it just passes too quickly. Our minds take one day to recover from the hard working week and then as soon as Sunday hits, the dreaded thought of another exhausting week begins to creep up in your mind which leaves you with an unhappy feeling all over again!!

We all like saying TGIF! with a smiley face at the end you see on social networks and people tweeting it by the end of every week and I’m sure most would agree that Sundays are the worst and it should be called ONIS! (OH NO It’s Sunday!… with a frown face attached to it!) and we continue living in this cycle over and over again but inside of us wanting to be free and just wishing that it would change one day, but don’t get me wrong, the money is good if you are earning a six figure income, but you just can’t enjoy it the way you want to because of the lack of time and that leaves a lot of frustrated folks wanting better in life.

It doesn’t really have to be that way if you know what I mean. The rat race of the Industrial Era is slowly dwindling to a new growing trend which we now call the ‘Digital Era‘ or the Information Age. The internet boom and the online industry has taken a new route in the world of business and has been generating trillions of dollars in revenue over the past 20 years or so. According to eMarketer, a market research firm, projects consumers worldwide will spend $1.672 trillion online this year and the global market is growing in an alarming rate and not to mention, hundreds of thousands of Dot com earners who are reaping the benefits from this new and emerging industry.

So why are we still stuck in the dark ages of working the traditional 9 to 5 jobs when others are earning six figure incomes from home working on the internet and spending nearly half the time working and getting all the time to travel and enjoy family life at the same time?

The concept of using internet marketing strategies to generate profitable income streams is a lucrative business and not everybody understands how it actually works and requires in depth research and knowledge to implement it effectively. The owners of websites like Huffington Post, Techcrunch, Mashable and Life Hacker to name some, generate millions of dollars in revenue. The age of Digital Marketing seems to be the new future for some and it is growing as more people are getting access to the internet through a multitude of devices that are available in the market and more businesses have their products sold online than ever before.

As for those folks who want to take a dive into the world of Internet and Online marketing or Digital marketing, then it is the time to take advantage of this new wave and it is here to stay for the long haul, so why not take a shot at it and end up having the kind of income, family time and vacation that you always dreamed of?… What do you think?… is this worth it?
