Getting noticed as your business is first getting started is no small challenge. Marie Forleo provides five simple steps to building a positive reputation, beginning with a clean and professional (not necessarily expensive) website.

How a new business can build a good reputation in several easy steps:

  • #1: Improve your online image and presence…clean and professional website, as the moment you tell people you have a new business they say: “Hey do you have a website?” [This includes a professional email address]
  • #2: Highlight your experience and the best place to do this is on your “About” page
  • #3: Communicate what you do clearly and competently both on your website and in person
