I think off line might have higher failure rate due to people underestimating start-up costs and not being able to last until they are successful. Online people can have a lot less overhead, and since they don't have to physically be someplace, they can still work at the same time. Most people I know that tried to start B&M businesses had the mentality that if they just throw a bunch of money at something, it will work. Which obviously isn't the case.
