    i have a few cash flows right now...

    email marketing program, web design, web marketing, hosting are all bringing in ok revenue on a monthly basis.

    should i spin each one of these off into its own company with its own brand, identity, and domain or should i continue to run everything under my one name and company?

    No. If you serve smb clients, they tend to like a "company" that can do whatever requires of them. Branching it off into several different names and companies will just confuse their feeble minds.

    Unless the companies were so distinctly different, you're just making yourself smaller, harder to find, and adding complexity to your systems (like having to maintain 6 different email accounts and websites.) I have 4 businesses, but one is for all things web development, one is a credit card module, one is an investment site, and the other is a general forum. None of them are remotely related to each other, so it makes sense to keep them apart.

    thanks guys

    how do you guys feel about running a business under a .org domain?

    i have a domain that is highly relevant to my business, but i only own the .org version

    I run everything under one name, i thought about splitting it, but decided against it since I advertise everything under the one name

    Running everything under one name could increase stickiness of clients... proven!

    name is not as important as the service. if you are obtaining clients and business via word of mouth and referals then it wont mean much.

    who do your clients talk to when they need support?
