business startup checklist

This is the essential guide to starting-up a business from scratch. We’ll keep the page up-to-date with clear and concise steps to form an online presence. Since we’re in the process of starting-up our own new venture, we’ll make this a dynamic checklist.

We’ll review all necessary steps to getting your business off the ground; from incorporation to advertising. While an internet business is the focus of this project, all businesses nowadays should have a digital presence. We hope that this brief, but comprehensive guide will be enough to get you started without sinking significant funds into the endeavor (again, this is all from personal experience).
