Taking the steps
As with any new project or business venture, you want to make sure that you have all your ducks in a row. Well i have started to find funding to get my web development business off the ground. All the while trying to get a few clients and add to my portfolio as well. Which can be difficult if your not sure where to start. My suggestion is to start by asking family and friends. Sometimes by tapping into your local network you can gain other contacts or even future business. Just get the word out and it will come. In the meantime keep polishing your skills and if you have a web site, create a few templates for sale. This will drive potential customers to your site and gives you clients and a bit of money in the process of waiting for a good paying client until then. Not only will you be making a bit of steady cash, you are also helping yourself in keeping your skills current and sharp. Having a good web presence is good, but ignoring your social contacts, whether online or not, you will lose out by not utilizing these tools that don’t cost you anything. Unless its your favorite Aunt wanting you to help with the dishes!! The main point is to take the first step. Once it has been taken, you’ll be off and running in no time!
