Getting a small business off the ground!

Many people start a small business because they have found something they love to do and believe that they can make money from it. However, many owners often don't know where to begin to market themselves.

This website will provide the foundation many owners can start with that will allow them to move quickly and build up a steady stream of new customers.

Why Marketing?

Even though you may have a long list of former customers or friends who might be able to throw business your way, it is usually not enough to sustain you consistently.

Effectively marketing your business not only gives you the peace of mind to know where your next check is coming from, but can also afford you the ability to be more selective in the type of customer you are willing to work with.

Although 'cherry-picking' your customers may not seem practical yet, as your business continues to grow you will want to eventually work to make it as profitable as it can be, which will sometimes mean turning down business that doesn't fit into that equation.

Do I have to do it all on my own?

Absolutely not! This website will provide you with the the steps you should take in order to get the word out about your business. However, delegation is a very important key to success. If your time is better spent behind the scenes doing what you do best, then by all means bring someone into the loop to get things going for you.

You don't even have to have someone on the payroll. There are many things that can be outsourced for very little cost.
