Have friends or family members test your website for complete functionality
Your website is your business card on the web. Make sure it is in perfect condition for your clients. No spelling errors should be visible and it should work in all different kind of web browsers. Ask friends and family to visit your website and look for broken links, spelling errors, and other things that might leave a bad taste with potential clients.
In most cases friends and family are very supportive when somebody they know is starting their own business. Let them know that you can’t pay for their work, but you will be able to offer them free or low-priced services down the road. They know that you are starting out and need all the support you can get.
Don’t have any friends or family that can help? Ask around. Co-workers, neigbors, or even folks on the Internet will eventually help you. Offer some freebies or promise to pay them as soon as you make some money. Offer gift certificates.
Make sure you make a comprehensive list of all problem spots and fix them right away.
