Starting up your own consulting business can be a scary and challenging thing to do, especially if you have always been employed by another company. Becoming self-employed throws up a huge amount of responsibilities and tasks you will never have had to deal with before, such as accounting and managing staff, and it can be a completely different animal to having a 9-5 job. Starting up a new business can be very costly and investment can run into thousands of pounds. However it is possible to start up without any initial layout and keep your business plan low risk.
One of the biggest fears held by most website owners is that any small mistake they make in producing their content or interacting their users will immediately lead to precipitous drop in their ranking at major search engines like Google. And, while it's responsible to avoid these pitfalls and mistakes altogether, it's worth noting that an immediate and mind-blowing drop at the internet's search leader is simply not likely in many cases. Such a theory was proved correct by an SEO firm which recently decided to deliberately destroy a reputable website's search engine rankings. As part of its project to make a first-page result into a last-page afterthought, the company loaded that website up with more than 50,000 undesirable links. This included forum posts, blog comment links, and other links placed into the sidebar for the sole effect of destroying the site's reputation.
