Hello all, Good forum. I am a web designer and have seen plenty of shabby ones (by shabby, I mean poorly moderated or distasteful). I am try to start my own LCO. I have worked on and off for another LCO, so I have a little work experience. I have good equipment for getting started. I wish to go full time when possible (wife also). Enough junk, here's some of my questions: 1. Is it too late in the year to get started? 2. What methods do you use to get customers (how to approach)? 3. I have read a lot here already, but does anyone have any tips for getting started in our area? I am in Smyrna, but not afraid to drive a few minutes for business ($$). 4. What is the key to finding contracts (that pay year round), as opposed to per cut? I don't want to go broke in the winter. Thanks for your advice!
