How virtual staff teams can work for the new Australian digital business middle class.
Australians have a new wireless broadband network and an entire new class of SMEs can possibly evolve with it. The majority of businesses in Australia are in the mid-range, small but big enough to be able to level up within good limits. They need not spend much more than ordinary budgets to do this.
The time is now for boutique businesses to shine online, and in Australia these are virtually found everywhere. Improving on these businesses is part of the government commitment for NBN, especially because the country is lagging in this economic sector. Thus, as this is being written, many SMEs in the country are thinking of going online. Those at the forefront of this local business revolution are of two minds, usually because they need more components to work with.
The components referred to above are in part related to marketing and online tech. In these, there are still so many business owners needing to see this part. Many are trying to access and use it, although they may not know how to start. A small number, which may be considered adventurous by the mainstream, are already there. Meaning, they are making use of brand keywords to corner their niches or make a name for themselves online.
These businesses are part of the reason why the Australian government felt beholden to create and maintain a public network like the NBN. Without prejudice to size, business field or purpose, the network is tasked to help boost the national economy. A mix of old and new businesses transacting online.
Compact offshore teams are now proving their worth to those Australian SMEs who have NBN. Many more will need the services of reliable online staffing firms. Preferably ones which have a good cross-cultural mix between Aussies and people on offshore locations.
