Indian entrepreneurs are perfect for E-commerce
At Incplan we assist Indian entrepreneurs, and others from all over the world form corporations or llcs. We can also help them open bank accounts. While people are often seeking the same thing, an E-commerce business that will allow them to find markets for products or services in the United States, there are also differences. We have observed that entrepreneurs tend to “specialize” in what they offer by country. This is certainly true of our Indian clientele, who are amongst the most entrepreneurial people in the world. We see three types of ventures stand out:
Remote IT Support
India of course is famous for this. Huge companies like iYogi and Gurus2go revolutionized this field. These are often business to business ventures. However, there is still plenty of room in the consumer end of the market. The fact is good tech support is scarcer and scarcer in the US. The tremendous advantage that Indians bring to this area is their superb technical educations and the fact that there is a common language, English, spoken by all the parties concerned. Although often American clients feel more comfortable dealing with US firms, the Indian roots of these IT support companies are a selling point. That is why there are often words in the company names, such as “guru” or “yogi,” that point to their proud Indian heritage.
Business Lead Generation
Every company, whether targeting consumers or business to business is ultimately a sales company. And what does every sales company need………leads! List building can be one of the most profitable internet businesses. There is always a ready market and there is no inventory to go bad. And while advertising can be an expensive way to generate lists, other modes such as social media, Facebook and Twitter respond to creative approaches. Many companies engaged in lead generation do it under a variety of DBAs to reflect their different areas of specialization.
Mobile Application Development
One of the fun things about being a entrepreneurial resource is seeing companies that we have assisted come into prominence. Even in small ways–sometimes I look at the Apple Store on my iphone and am amazed. “Oh my goodness, that app was developed by Suresh’s company!” We often feel like proud parents. When you are developing apps it is very important to treat them as proper businesses and have them in a corporation or llc with an American bank account. This can help ensure proper payment accounting and their security as intellectual property.
E-commerce has created a world where the “middleman” of an in country distributor is less and less important. Entrepreneurs from all over the globe can sell their products directly to the end user. Each country may “specialize” in types of businesses for which they become known.
Once thing that is common to all is the necessity to establish a presence in the country market where they seek to do business. In America this means having a US company and a bank account. This will allow an entrepreneur from anywhere on the planet to have a high US profile. It will also enable him to easily accept payment from his satisfied clients.
