Top Earning Companies in the World

By:     Topics: Make Money Online

Today I wanted to take a look at the top 30 earning companies in the world. We recently showed you how much the top 30 websites are earning and when you look at the top companies,  Google’s $691.27 a second doesn’t sound much. Don’t let all these high figures miss lead you,  running a website instead of a tradional company can be a lot better in so many ways:

  • No physical products
  • No physical location
  • Can work from anywhere in the world
  • You don’t need customers
  • Can be automated
  • Outsource everything
  • The 9 – 5 doesn’t exist, this post was published while I was in bed!
  • You have no one barking orders at you.

With that in mind, the benefits of having a traditional business over a web business are second to none. When I compare the top earning company and the top earning website, the difference is clear! Wal-Mart are on course to earn $400,000,000,000 this year with profit under $14,000,000,000 compared to Googles $21,000,000,000 in 2008 with a profit of $4,200,000,000 – making Google more than 5 times more profitable!

Wal-Mart Stores Earn $12,011.64 a Second!
