Also How did some of you get your business names out there, other than through advertising. I am super excited but nervous about my first few steps in the new career.

Congratulations on completing the course - I have 2 assignments to go.
I set up my business this year, and have planned a couple of events for friends and family.
I had a very limited budget so used social media to market myself, mostly Facebook (here's my page: www.facebook.com/mermaidevents), but also have Twitter, Pinterest & Instagram accounts too. These are all free to set up but require a big time investment to keep them up to date.
Once I'd generated some interest in my facebook page (& managed to save some cash) I had a website developed:
SEO is important to make sure you appear near the top of Google search, but the web developers can sort this for you.
I did some research & it seems most brides to be hang out online so I concentrate on online marketing - print ads etc are expensive & hit and miss in my opinion but it may be different in your area.
Hope that helps, best of luck with your new business!
