Bajooter seems to be going well. We have about five potential clients right now which is actually a lot since we can only handle about one and a half per month. I love seeing all our hard work beginning to pay off. In the past month we’ve registered our business with the state, opened a bank account and received our fancy business checks, networked like crazy, almost polished off a box of business cards, and joined the Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber of Commerce has a lot of great benefits that I hope we can really take advantage of. They post an ad for our company in the newspaper (and it’s a decent size too), we get listed in the Chamber directory, they hold leads meetings and mixersâ€”they even get discounts on health care. So we’ll see how it goes. There are only a couple other website design companies who are members of the Chamber so it seems like it could be beneficial.
I think I will need to revisit our business plan soon. I had been going real strong on it but it’s kinda fallen by the wayside now. There are some really important things in it that I still need to address such as our income projections. That stuff is really good to think about and I learn so much in the process. The hardest thing for me has been the marketing section, although our friend Carrie has been helping us.
Oh and since everybody asks what a Bajooter is, it’s a neologism. ;)
