Now, sit back and relax... Imagine you are on the beach...

Hear the waves and feel the sand between your toes as you dream about your business and everything it will accomplish.

In your minds eye, a magic checklist floats by... You look at it with curiosity.
Then you realise it could help you assess what things you already have in place and highlight what is missing in order to launch you business online.

You feel relieved to (finally) see such a list because it has been rather overwhelming to figure out what to do, by when and in which order.  You know that this checklist - your startup journey map - will make all the difference to your tech, online presence and digital marketing worries.

You give a deep relaxing sigh and begin to ponder the options...
 
How would you rate your level of tech and online media savvy? *

 
Had you heard of BlueBubble TECH Ltd before today? *



 
Thank you for that information {{answer_60455915}}. Let's begin with your checklist journey, spanning 8 parts:

1.  Company Name availability.
2.  Registration at Companies House
3.  Domain registration & SSL
4.  Email & calendar setup.
5.  Branding & Business Cards
6.  Website design
7.  Digital Marketing & sales
8.  Other income streams
 
SECTION 1.  Company Name Availability...

How do you avoid using a similar company name, or check if theme picked is unique?
 
Have you checked online at Companies House, to see if the name is available? *

     
 
Have you completed a full domain name check across all extensions (there are at least 900!) and understood how to pick the best one? *

There are more than just .com, e.g., .net, .io, .ltd, .co.uk, .uk, .tv, .blog and hundreds more - which one will give you the best search results and still reflect your brand identity?




 
Did you also complete a full social media check on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube to see if the business name is available? *

     
 
SECTION 2.  Company Name Registration...

Let's look at the processes of registering your business at Companies House
 
Are you absolutely certain of the difference, pros and cons of registering as a Sole Trader or Limited? *

     
 
Do you understand all 40 pages of the Companies House application form sections, to register as Ltd or sole trader? *





 
Are you aware that the registered name can be different from the domain name, especially if there it's a popular domain? *

     
 
Did you know that at this point, it is time to finalise the domain registration and complete the search engine hit-pool research? *

 
SECTION 3.  Domain Registration & Setup...

It's time to get your own corner on the internet :)
 
Do you know which extension is best suited to your business?
 .com, .net, .io, .ltd, .tv, .xyz, .design, .app etc? *

There are 100's to choose from and it can be a real minefield.

 
Are you aware of the differences between domain hosting, website hosting & website content? *

     
 
Do you know how to find a domain and set it up for security, SSL, DNS, eCommerce & email? *





 
SECTION 4.  Creating a business email with your own domain...

 
Have you set up a customised email for your business yet? *

If you want to look professional and taken seriously, it's time to ditch the .gmail, .hotmail, .yahoo, .outook, .bt, .wahetever free stuff and get you@yourbusinessdomain.blah own email.
     
 
Do you know why you have to pay for a business email i.e. you@yourbusinessdomain.blah vs gmail etc. which is free? *


 
*Most excellent {{answer_60455915}} you are halfway through :)

Enjoy a short breather    ---- aahhh ----

Now, let's dive into the last four parts:
         5.  Branding
         6.  Your Business Website
         7.  Digital Marketing Strategy
         8.  Other income streams

Understanding these parts and executing them properly, are very important steps to building your business.
 
SECTION 5.  Branding and business cards...

This is often the first contact a potential customer has with your business, or you.
Elements such as consistency and colour psychology play a large role in how your brand 'feels' to the client, which impacts on your sales.

What are the things you need to think about when creating an identity for your business?
 
Even before you have a domain, business email and website, get business cards printed and/or designed.
Have you done that yet? *

{{answer_60455915}}, even if you are unsure of a logo, you can still* just print your name and even the temporary name & email address of your business.
* Yes, even if you have no address or branding yet, you can always improve later. It is more important that you are not empty handed if someone asks.
     
 
Briefly describe, in a few words which colours, font and vibe you want people to associate with your brand. *

If you are stuck on this, look at what competitors use and think how your logo and brand can stand out from them.
 
What other branding and marketing materials do you need? *


 
Where will you get them designed and printed? *





 
SECTION 6.  Website hosting and design...

This is where customers go to either find out where you are located, or to find out more about your products, services and pricing.

What things do you need to think about when designing a website / choosing a template?
 
Did you know that there are at least SEVEN separate costs for setting up your business website? *

(i) Linking the website with the domain, DNS & server settings in the background
(ii)   Hosting of the website, if you use a website builder
(iii)  The mandatory SSL certificate, which is very different in cost if you do eCommerce
(iv)  Website design (UX/UI) costs
(v)   Website content costs (e.g. Text, Graphics, Stock Images, Fonts to purchase)
(vi)  Website optimisations (SEO, Images, loading speeds)
(vii) Ongoing maintenance of the background link to the servers, domain and your content
     
 
If you want a website for you business, what budget have you put aside for these seven costs? *

 
Before instruct someone to code, build or design your business website - have you thought about, or done any of the following? *

It is very important to be as clear and as specific as you can, on what exactly you want - yes every detail, image, colour and click button. The more changes you make, the more it will cost you in money, time and sales.

 
How will you create/design & make your website a reality? *





 
SECTION 7.  Digital Marketing Strategy...

Now {{answer_60455915}} let's look at the heart of every business:
--> Marketing strategy (the red part of the funnel in the image below),
--> Generating qualified leads (the orange part - stage 2)
--> Sales (the green and blue parts in the funnel - stages 3 & 4)
 
Think about the marketing mix (strategy) you will use... *

How confident are you in using the latest & most applicable for tech for your goals when it comes to email, search engine and social media marketing?

(1 - never heard of this, 10 - I can create & run my own online ads and campaigns)










 
How well do you think, will your current offers work to get people interested in your products and service? *

(1 - 'I don't think anyone will be interested', up to 10 - 'I already have a 100% conversion rate')










 
How well are your sales doing at the moment? *

(1 - 'No sales yet', up to 10 - 'Already have repeat customers')










 
How will your marketing strategy generate more leads and sales? *

Think about building your email list, connecting with customers, follow-up & tailored offers.

(WoM = via word of mouth)
