Web Credibility Checklist

Dramatically improve your web site by following these examples. I help clients be clear, credible and compelling. Please follow me on LinkedIn http://www.linked
Rhonda Best's insight:

During a conversation an entrepreneur said to me - 'why is it so difficult to find just one source with start up tips?'  'Why is every professional creating his/her own and it's all the same - long, boring and unclear?'  My answer, I really don't know.  So instead of blogging myself I've created a curation of startup tips from influencers across the globe.  Some scoops may be more appropriate to businesses in the UK (eg tax links) but mostly relevant to any start up - by sorting the useful from the noise I hope that I can be of assistance.  Feel free to share and send me any of your top tips too.  Vault open!
