Do you have insurance for your small business? I shared a post on the +FreshBooks blog detailing when insurance may be needed at your business.
Getting some level of insurance is pretty much the norm these days, whether it’s to protect against the unexpected with our homes, cars, health (at least for those of us in the US), and more. But what ...

Hi +Raymond Hessbrook I would start with becoming active on social media to try and get the word out that way. I'd also focus on local publications and try for advertising there.

It is hard for a small business to find a topic and do it well.  We have been lucky enough in our blog posts to write about some stuff that has just really taken off but other posts just bomb.  Swings and roundabouts as they say.

If you want to build a sustainable #business  - I suggest rethinking your prices! I shared more in this post on Forbes. What are your thoughts on pricing?
Startups and small businesses have a habit of setting their prices low in order to attract customers. The problem is, it’s simply unsustainable. These entrepreneurs end up working as hard as they can just to stay afloat. In extreme cases, a business actually loses money with each new sale.

I think that is an awesome article!  I've had to do it too and it is tough.  I've found that advertising costs have to be factored in and charged on the bottom line as well.  This too increasing the retail number.  You just can't skimp on your business which means you can't be the cheapest.  You are worth more than that.  Very very nice work +Nellie Akalp

Story
Tagline
Mom, Wife, Small Business Owner and CEO of CorpNet.com!
Introduction
I'm a mom of four beautiful children and am married to my best friend, my business partner and my husband of 16 years. My husband and I started our first business back in 1997 from our apartment and grew that venture to a lager company that was acquired by Intuit in 2005. We could have retired then - but who wants to do that? In 2009, we started CorpNet.com, where we help entrepreneurs incorporate a business, Form an LLC, file a DBA and many other legal startup tasks.
