Form Your Own Corporation or LLC
JDC Consultancy has many clients and visitors to its website that need to form their own U.S. company before applying for their U.S. visa. If you are starting a business, you definitely need to check out CorpNet! Founded by experienced entrepreneur Nellie Akalp, who's helped over 100,000 small business owners get their start, CorpNet can assist you with filing a DBA ("doing business as"), Forming a Corporation, or an LLC (Limited Liability Company), by completing the process quickly and affordably saving you time and money with fast reliable service. CorpNet packages start from just $79, plus state filing fees. This is SO much cheaper than what a lawyer or other professional will charge. The site also offers a FREE Business Name Search Feature where you can conduct unlimited business name searches and get your results within 24 hours.
Bluehost Website Hosting - Having a website is an absolute necessity these days and getting your website hosted on a reliable platform is equally as important. We have been using Blue Host for the past 7 years and they are truly a great web hosting company with fantastic support. Not only are they an awesome company they deliver exceptional value for small and large businesses alike. We highly recommend Blue Host to host your new or existing website and strongly believe that you will be truly satisfied with them too. Another important feature worth highlighting is that if you have more than one website, you can host multiple domains on the one web hosting account, which represents remarkable value for money!
48 Hours Logo - Having a logo for your business is another critical component to your success and it doesn't have to be an expensive proposition. While the JDC Consultancy logo was not created on 48 Hours Logo (we were not aware of them at the time), we have used this service for other projects, and we are impressed! 48 Hours Logo is a unique website that is set up in a contest format. Basically you submit a description of what you would like to see incorporated in to your new logo and a bunch of graphic designers compete for your business. You are in total control of everything, you get to see multiple designs from a variety of different designers and you get to pick which logo you like the most for your company or brand. Designers will tweak your logo upon your request until you are 100% satisfied with the final version. It really is a great way to create a professional, but very affordable logo for your business.
Grasshopper Virtual Phone System - If you are looking for an easy-to-use and low-cost phone system that you (and even your team) can be connected to no matter where you are, then this is the perfect solution for you! This is an awesome system that we have been using for over 5 years now and it is so very convenient. If you need a phone number (local to your area or toll-free) then Grasshopper will most likely fit your needs. You might remember the expensive PBX systems that are installed in offices that route your calls automatically as they come in, based on your callers making a choice as to who or what department they would like to speak to. You no longer need to spend any up-front money on an expensive digital phone system if you use the Grasshopper service. For a low monthly fee you can have your own telephone number with multiple extensions that route to whatever person or department you would like, no matter where anyone is. Instead of going in to a lot of detail here, click on the Grasshopper link above and check out all the features and benefits they offer, you will not be disappointed!
