I started a small business last October to help small businesses in my town. I do web design and custom design business tools for them. It's off to a slow start, only had one site to design so no real portfolio; I'm starting to wonder if I should keep it up or let it go before I invest more into it. My site is aiken2grow.com and the other site I designed is ndsop.org (for a church). I know there's lots of competition, do ya'll think I have a shot?
**Please be brutally honest if you have to, I need to know the truth. Thanks :)

I would say before you call it quits......try running a special of some kind and reach out to maybe some of the bigger businesses in your area, maybe even expand the area that you do business for. Check out the other rates offered for what you do and see if you're able to beat them. I have a candle business and there are TONS of other candles reps around me.....but I'm the only rep for the candles I sell and more and more people are learning about them and coming to me rather than the ones they used before. It's not impossible for you're business to grow! Just make sure you put a limit as to how much you're willing to put into it and stick with it. Good luck!
