Think about marketing
All too often we have seen new business owners and startups get completely wrapped up in the moment of actually creating a company and opening their doors to start trading, yet completely overlook the need to plan a marketing strategy to get their business seen online.<br/><br/>Remember to budget and also consider how you are going to market your company once you have started trading. Using Google (Search Engine Optimisation), Social Media and doing local networking are great ways to build your awareness and get new customers!

Get the best company name.
Ensure your company name encompasses the exact nature of your business, this is more important now than ever before, especially where domain names are concerned.
