Hi all. Just starting out on my own. Plagued with thoughts of getting my name out there, giving fair competitive quotes, providing a good service and getting my website up and running, as well as all the rest of the paperwork that I have to put in place. It seems a bit like walking through a minefield, waiting for something to go off unexpected. Any tips would be much appreciated.

cheers

Hi Peter,

Its a bit like that at the moment considering the current economic climate.

Maybe get some flyers printed up and drop them into your local estate and letting agents etc. They can be a good source of work.

Good luck!

I was on my first business link course last night, and I can highly recommend it. It was only a general introduction to being self employed but I found it really useful and i'm sure anyone else whos never been self employed before would too.

Estate agents looks a good idea cheers for that Jason.

i made my website on microsoft office live, and bought the domain name for less than a tenner.

i shopped around for webhosting and domain names and this was by far the best and easiest option.

good luck.
