    Try focusing on one market, IE your local market. Do a small low budget add campaign, visit churches, contact teachers and sponsor graphic design departments, something to get the name out.

    See how you fair after 2 or 3 months, and see if that is your target market. Build up a "Target Market" portfolio and then use it to go after regional markets based on your target market.

    Be a specialist in your field, so many hosts out there just "Want it all, and fast", and they forget that there are real people out there looking for services, that want to be serviced by the right service.

    Samuel remember what happened last time you were selling your "cookies"? We don't want a repeat of that little incident now, do we?

    Seriously edude, it's the web cam. Those were awesome Ghiradelli Chocolate brownies. The cam blurs, and distorts color. You'll see other pictures by me in the future, or in the past threads showing it.
