SEO Tip for Your Business Website
Find out what Headline tags are (H1, H2, H3 etc.) and implement them properly throughout your websites pages and content. No WordPress, or other platforms, themes tags are setup correctly for SEO, the tags are generally used for styling which is basically an easy way for the theme designers and developers, also most SEO companies to layout a page BUT all it does is ruin the pages targeting and ranking possibilities.

Be Prepared and plan before you leap
Prepare by research and study as much as you can about what you want to do. Then make a cash plan. Prepare a simple summary of where and when you expect to receive cash in to the business and compare those figures with a simple summary of where and when you expect to have to spend cash. If you are spending too much refine the plan or consider if its worthwhile pursuing at this stage. Would you start building a home without a plan? Do not start a business without a plan. Do not sign up long term commitments to rent property or assets without being sure you have money coming in to cover these costs.

Never underestimate the value of what you have to offer
It is so easy to feel that everyone else, every other business will be able to emulate you skills or offer business solutions. The thing to remember is that there is no one else on the planet who will offer the services you do, or the solutions you have because they are as unique as you are. Focus on honing your best attributes and believe in yourself and what you're doing. Do not under value the fact that you are unique. Also, don't under charge, offering competitive rates for businesses is different to under valuing what you provide - it is usually counter intuitive and bad for business in the long run. Keep positive, focus and know your worth.
