A little backstory, I work for a startup company. It has been just over a year here and my boss also operates a digital marketing agency where I also work, so I work for both the startup and my boss's longstanding marketing agency.
Seeing the money come in I was interested, and with me only getting a small percentage with my boss barely helping, I realize I can do this on the side for myself and collect 100% of the money instead of my measly commission.
But I cannot mention it to my boss, since he helped me get to where I am now and how I would be direct competition, so I cannot really ask him for advice but I do get tidbits every now and then.
I am at the point where I am finalizing my website, My services will include SEO, ad management, content creation, website development, email marketing, and other very closely related topics I am skilled in.
I am ensuring all functionality is correct and blog content is currently being planned so I can rank with Google Organic.
Once I have articles ready and confirm functionality, I will be launching. Is there anything I need to know?
I will note, I believe I want to meet with a business professional, lawyer, and accountant to sort everything out before I get into a big mess, unsure if I really need to though. I am unsure of how I will accept payment legally, I cannot use PayPal for these transactions and I also will need to figure out the licenses I need for creating this business in my state (NY). That's what's on my mind so far, anything else I should look into?
