    I couldn't agree with you more on all three points. Though the getting the very first clients for #1 can be a little difficult. But WHT can probably get those for you.

    Hi jamenjaw.

    1. Don't overlook your local advertising market!
    2. Perl Desk!!
    3. Skip the targeted emailing! You don't want to ruin your rep before you even get started. No matter how targeted, people will still view this as SPAM.

    thanks,
    hrmm i will take your advice. and use perldesk
    what i ment in targeted e-mail was buying an advertising spot in a news letter that is directed to webmasters and or webdesigners. somthing like what bravenet offers but at a cheeper price.

    I couldnt agree more with advertising here with WebHostingTalk. I was able to get my first 3 clients by visiting the forums here...And more are coming!

    Good Luck to you!
