Many areas of Asia are starting to look at how to live with Covid19, instead of simply trying to completely control it. This is oppening up opportunities for new online services, online platforms, and all kinds of other businesses. What may have been someones disaster experience could become another persons dream opportunity.
Since businesses have been closed or functions reduces, as the markets reopen, there is a need to fill the void and provide the services and products people want. However, as the world is not yet completely stable, one way to do this is to test the markets with a website, or even to provide online sales and services. It is often cheap to get started and gives you more flexibility to grow and become established.
So, as countries such as Singapore and Thailand look at how to live normally with Covid, why not get online and grab some of the market. There are many resources for setting up hosting and websites, as well as offorable options to get going. The first step is to start looking for opportunities.
Once you have an idea of what you want to do, you will then need some web hosting and ideally that should be in Asia or with a good CDN (Content Display Network) so that your website loads quickly for your target customers. Depending on the project size or your knowledge level, everything from shared hosting to virtual private servers is available at affordable prices. You could even get a dedicated server, but unless your new venture is a large app idea or likely to be huge, that kind of level isn’t normally needed. We’d suggest starting small with your hosting plans, and then upgrading as you notice any issues or need the extra bandwidth etc. After all, it is likely to be a while befor you reach any major levels of fame.
