Website Content
Too often small business owners forget to actually say on their website why their so good and what they do. Chances are you started your business because you thought you could do a better job than the competition. Your website is the place to shout and scream about why your so good and why your best. Don't forget to tell your potential customers why they should choose you!

Get Paid Up-Front!!
When do you invoice for your work!? We learned the hard way to ask our clients to pay in advance for each piece of work. We start work as soon as they have paid. If we know them we sometimes allow a 50% deposit, but if not, it's 100% up front. It may feel cheeky to you, but there’s no faster way for a startup to go under than to carry the debt of clients’ unpaid bills. Don’t start working until you get paid up front. Seriously, just don't! Do something else until you get the money!
