I notice you seem to prefer Google Blogger as opposed to other software.  Can you explain why?

Answer:  I prefer it because it is Free, Easy to Use, Google is constantly adding new features.  A perfect tool for a beginner.  Many people prefer other software, such as, Wordpress.  Wordpress is an excellent program but requires a host.  It is suited for more sophisticated Bloggers and provides many valuable plug-ins to promote your site.  

 In any case the success of the Blog is it's content and traffic.  A Google Blog connects with ADSENSE offering the ability to earn money with Ads they suggest.

What is the best type of entity to form when starting a business?


Your decision should be made in conjunction with the advice of your CPA and Attorney.  State requirements vary and should be considered.  For example, in New York State the formation of an LLC requires additional cost to advertise the formation in local newspapers.  In some cases a sole proprietorship could be your best choice.

I just started a home-based business designing accessories for mobile electronic devices.  I would like to protect my company name and logo.  Can you explain how I can accomplish this?

If you have a business name, catch phrase, logo design or a combination of those that you want to legally protect, you’ll need to bone up on trademarks—a form of relatively low-cost legal protection for this type of “intellectual property.”

Applying for a federal trademark, or its companion the service mark, is a crucial step toward protecting a business name. But trademarks are not the same as patents and copyrights, even though the differences are not widely understood. While there are similarities, they serve different purposes.  Within this blog we provide more extended information - HERE

I am interested in trademarking a name (for a website/blog) but have been 
told to seek legal advice before going that route. What exactly am I 
supposed to ask an attorney and look out for? Just speaking to an attorney 
can cost me money that I cant afford to spend. Is it absolutely necessary 
that I seek legal advice from an attorney just to trademark a name? I am 
trying to limit any expense that is unnecessary (though I'm not deeming this 
unnecessary at the moment).

The name I wish to trademark is a play off an English word with a purposely 
misspelled letter. I checked the TESS system to see if anyone has used the 
word, and it came back negative. Would you be able to assist me on this

Question:  How do I Determine Pricing?

In  today's business world knowing your customer's profile or  knowing  your
target customer's profile is the first step in determining  pricing.  Is
your customer expecting deals (discount off SRP) such as  JC Penny's
customers became, or are they Club Customer's (join a club to  get "Club
Pricing") like Costco and Sam's Club, are they internet price  searchers
looking for the best price on the internet or are the Brand King  or Queen,
they want X brand and will pay Full Retail for that Brand, such  as Apple
(or at least up to now).

Pricing is easily defined - How  much will the customer pay?  Will you/can
you sell it for that?   Now maximizing the gap between sales price and costs
is what gets  complicated and then throw in product mix, and you get  the

Where are they getting what you are offering  (competition), What are they
willing to pay (vs competition or for this New  product or Service), What is
the minimum you are willing to sell it  for?  Is my product or service a
commodity (has a limited life, for  example a airline seat on a certain
flight or hotel rooms for tonight) will  have a different pricing model vs
selling goods (inventory).

I just  read an article that a College program was going to do a Dutch Sales
of it  Football tickets.  A Dutch auction is where they have X number  of
tickets and they start off with a pricing for a certain period of  time,
then if they still have tickets then they lower the price, they  keep
repeating until they have sold all the ticket of get to the minimum  price
they are will to accept for the ticket.  A Dutch Auction is how  Tulips are
sold in Holland still today.
