I have a nice little design company doing great at the moment. Im thinking to expand into clothing later this year and hosting. I was wondering. Would you reccomend i start new brands for each of the new ventures or use the same name as my design company. The name i have at the moment is fizzy jelly.
Design and hosting go together if it's digital/online design, however, it will not necessarily go with the clothing. My suggestion is to have two companies, one for digital/online design and hosting, and another for clothing design.
I operate 3 different businesses. A hosting company, a DJ business, and a national Wedding & Bridal resource company. The only references to the hosting company are in the fact that the DJ website and Bridal sites are hosted by the hosting company.
I keep the 3 operations seperate as much as possible. Different phone numbers, seperate accounting, and even personnel.
I would keep the clothing company seperate from the hosting service. Maybe provide a weblink to the hosting service on the clothing site. But not much more of a connection than that.
Okay thanks for the tips! Overall i get the feeling that its best then to seperate business as much as possible if there in diffrent areas. So what would you say regarding the design and hosting. Keep them togehter or seperate?
Right okay. Then taking it a step further:
I have my webdesign business (custom design)
web hosting business (higher prices attracting a certain market)
Im then going to have something im working on at the moment. Which is a kinda template store, so high quality non exclusive designs. Would you integrate this with the main company or start a fresh site for this?
