Get online

 

Set up a website for your consulting service. The site should clearly explain what consulting services you offer and how to get hold of you.

 

Before you set up the site, obtain a domain name, for example, consultant-example.com. You can search for and buy a domain through: wix.com, www.GoDaddy.com, or many others. Such services can also host the website for you.

 

You can set up a site for free without purchasing a domain by using, among many, wix.com, GoDaddy.com, Squarespace, Google’s Blogger, WordPress, or other free blog sites. It is more professional, though, to obtain your own domain name for your website.

Many website hosting services include programs or apps that allow you to establish your own website without programming experience. You could also find someone to put up a website for you at low cost using freelance services such as Fiverr, Guru.com or Elance.com.

A website can also allow your clients to pay you online using PayPal or an online merchant’s account.
