    Happy to see that I have ticked off quite a few of the tips on my checklist. What about those businesses/practices that are actually off-line but maintain on-line visibility since prospects do Google searches? Would love to read more tips. I often do quasi pro-bono workshops where the sponsor provides the venue and covers the cost material and a small honorarium to cover my overheads.
