Share this with your other social media profiles like, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. It is important to understand that the majority of SnapChat users who have a large following get those followers from their other popular social media accounts. If you are a popular YouTuber, you will automatically get thousands of follows just by telling your viewers to follow you. It may be easier to build up your Twitter or Instagram following first then have those followers add you to SnapChat.
In every major field there are popular people in social media. Considering they are in the same field as you are, their followers will be interested in your content as well. Follow this person, you may receive random follows. Have something interesting? Send it to them, they may share it with their followers.
Post to SnapChat daily and center your post around a theme. Be creative, funny, and entertaining and your followers will share you with others.
Sometimes, to get the job you have to work for free. Fact is, no one will hire you without knowing you are capable of doing the job. Build a portfolio that will stand out and show you’re a professional.
Work For Free
Sounds horrifying, right? It doesn’t have to. Knowing that your work is going to bring in more clientele will assure you that you aren’t really working for free. An office cleaning start-up could clean four offices absolutely free in hopes of gaining a new client.
Take Quality Pictures
After performing a job for free, take quality pictures of the work you’ve done. Ask for a testimonial for further proof that you did a fantastic job.
Add A Portfolio Page On Your Website
If you don’t have a website by now, you should. A website is the best place to display your work and find new customers. Add a portfolio section to your website that contains before and after photos with testimonials.
This comes in handy when a potential client asks for samples. Just direct them to your website and you’re sure to gain a client. If not, you’ll eventually gain one.

Many new companies are eager to get their businesses online but are they ready? These tips will provide you a guideline to planning your website. When you’re ready, you’ll be able to explain to your web designer exactly what you need in a website.
Tip #1 Creating information about your company.
Every company should have a bio which tells the reader about their company, who founded it, why it was founded and when. Regardless of whether you have a website or not, a company bio is standard for any business. Not only will this information be displayed on your website but it can also be used for your company’s brochures.
Tip #2 What are your services or products?
Compile a list of services or products you offer. Write a paragraph or two about your services or products and why the visitor needs them.
Tip #3 Your website is similar to a brochure.
If there is any other information you think the visitor needs to know about your company that will help you make a sale, add that as well. Think of your website as an online brochure. Anything you would put in a brochure can also be displayed on a website.
Tip #4 Get an idea of what you want your website to look like.
The best way to accomplish this is to do a search on the internet using your favorite search engine of companies like yours. Click through the searches and choose two to three different websites with designs you like. Pass those website URLs over to your web designer so she can take a look at them. This will help your web designer design your website and give you a website you’ll love.
Tip #5 What features will you need?
Think about what you want your visitors to do when they visit your website. Do you need them to just be able to contact you via an e-mail form or will you need them to complete an online application? Perhaps you would like your visitors to sign-up for your monthly newsletter or purchase your products from your website. When discussing your website with your web designer, be sure to include this information so they will be prepared for what your website will need. Also, not every web designer does shopping carts or special coding so you should find out what the web designer can do for you so there is no confusion later.
Tip#6 What is your time frame and budget for your website?
Are you in need of your website in a week? Do you have a limited budget for your project? Decide how much money you can spend on your website and how fast you need it. Remember that more advanced websites will require more time to create and will also cost you more money for the programming and design knowledge as well as the time spent on the project. So plan your website accordingly.
Google is the #1 search engine and if you’re not listed with Google Search, well, you’re missing out on potential customers. Consider Google Search as your business phone book. You can literally find anything you’re looking for just by searching in Google.
Likewise, your customers are searching the web as well and you want them to be able to find you. So, how do you get listed in Google? Follow these steps below and you’ll be on your way.
Be sure your website has content that’s relevant to the services and products you offer. You wouldn’t want your website to be about ‘cars’ when you’re trying to sell ‘baby clothes’.
Get your website search engine optimized. If you don’t know what these means. It simply means to organize your website to be indexed by Google for a particular keyword or keyword phrase.
Domain names are purchased by the year. When you decide to start a website, the first thing you’ll need is a domain name. It’s also one of the easiest things to buy when it come to websites because it’s the cheapest. Domain prices vary but you can get one for around $12 a year. Sounds great, right? Well it is great. The problem with domains is that you never REALLY own them. You have to continually register them each year. There is the option of registering a domain name up to ten years but that is the max. After ten years, well, you’ll still need to renew that domain.
The good thing is domain registrars tend to send reminders via your e-mail when its around that time to renew. If you’re not an email checker, you might want to start. So many important things may come in your email and if you have a domain name, your renewal reminder is one of them. So what happens when you’ve ignored those reminders to renew or simply forgot to renew? You loose your domain name and it goes up for sale. “So. I’ll just buy it back” you say.
You could and you can. However, if you think it’s going to be for $12 a year you are wrong. When your domain is resold, the price goes up. There are also people called ‘Domainers’ who make a living of registering domains from those who forgot to renew. They will then e-mail you and may even call you to try and sell it back to you.
The offers go from $200 to $10,000 or more depending on how good that domain name is. Most will opt to get a different domain name instead of paying the high price to get their original domain name back. The next time it’s time for you to renew your domain, do it or set it up for auto-renewal which will automatically take the $12 from your credit card. Your domain is your virtual online property, don’t forget to renew it.
