Working from home may seem like small potatoes, but you can earn big money if you can present yourself like the big boys. I’d like to show you 3 simple things that you can do to make your customers think that you are a large corporation instead of a home based business.
If you’re aiming to host videos within your website, you should check to see if your web host will allow it. Many web hosts will not let people host videos on their servers. FLV files usually take up more than their fair share of space, so check before adding videos to avoid wasting your time.
This is a little contradictory. Self published authors don’t start tossing rotten food just yet. Self published works can be legitimate credentials. If your sales were good, then you could include this as experience, but if they weren’t good, it may hurt you in the end. This one is a ‘use your best judgement’ kind of thing. What are good sales?

Too many bells and whistles on the website may deter future customers.
