If you are a freelancer or contemplating a fractional career or side hustle, one of the best investments you can make is to incorporate your business. It is a low-cost, easy way to take advantage of tax benefits, shield yourself from liabilities, and make yourself more marketable. Transforming yourself into an “official” business yields an excellent ROI that will result in more money in your bank account and more credibility for your brand.

Does Every Freelancer Need a Website?
Creating a website to advertise and sell your products or services can be crucial to building your business and brand. That being said, having a website is certainly not the only way to run a successful freelancing business. In fact, for those who have just begun their freelancing or fractional journey, or for those who have not yet honed-in on their specific market, starting a website may not be the best option. One thing to remember is even if you don’t have a website, you can still have a web presence.
So, what are the alternatives? How do you reach clients without a website? How do you know which path is right for you? There are many things to consider when deciding how to further your freelancing business. Here are just a few of the alternatives to having a website.
