Usually things are very difficult but only until you know how to do them, right? That’s the same when you want to start a business. When I started buidling up my online business, a completely new world opened its doors to me. The online world welcomed me! Before my business, I knew Facebook, Google and Twitter. That was it! However I realized that there are many great resources out there that make life so easy. And the best thing is that they are all free. Plus, they will all help you to set up your business in a very professional way.
So, here you go with the ressources I use. Have fun and let me know if you have any questions.
Don’t make the mistake to hire an expensive webdesigner. If you are just starting out with your business and you do not have thousands of dollards to spend on a webdesigner, check out www.wordpress.org. It is so easy to make your own website. There are many great themes out there which are totally for FREE. Check it out, baby and thinke twice before spending a single dollar for a web designer. http://wordpress.org/
