Owning your own business is exciting and provides you with numerous opportunities to achieve your goals and to meet the needs of others. Many people today are turning to the internet as a way to create a business and build it on a global scale. Just because you may operate your company from a home or just over the web doesn’t mean you are risk-free. There are risks and the right combination of business insurance is very important to minimize those risks. How do you protect your internet-based business, then?
Analyze Your Risks
There are any risks to consider. Some studies indicate that as much as 74% of businesses may face intellectual property infringement claims, for example. You may have a product that fails, leading to claims of negligence filed against your business. The right business insurance can help to minimize these claims, though. What types of risks do you have?
- Liability risks for internet-based businesses can vary. If you sell a product or service that could fail, having liability insurance is important. It helps protect against negligent claims made against the business.
- If you provide clients or customers with expert-level information or service, professional liability insurance or umbrella insurance is important.
- Your business insurance may also need to include coverage for any property your business owns including computer systems and software. If you operate in a building, whether you own or lease it, you may need coverage for that risks as well.
- Cyber liability is also growing in importance for these types of businesses because they tend to be particularly vulnerable. Data breach and hacking instances can put your company at risk.
- If you have employees, you may still need to provide workers’ compensation coverage in some states.
Take the time to work closely with a business insurance agent to create a specialized insurance plan that addresses your specific risks. It can make a big difference in the way your business operates. What’s more, you’ll need to be sure the coverage is specific to your industry, your assets, and your risks based on where you operate and where your customers are. This can make purchasing business insurance a bit more complex in some situations.
