Personally I found LegalZoom annoying, complicated, and overly pushy with their upsells.
This was the most effective set up for me.
I had JonesWaldo set up my LLC, file all the paperwork, and get the EIN for my biz.
Then I took that info over Chase and set up a business account.
I got a Southwest credit card which I love. (review here) This let’s me skip the security lines at the airport because it made me A-list. I’ve been able to fly free because of all the points you get for just using the card regularly. I use this card for all my ad spend so the points add up quick.
Then I use Bookly.co for bookkeeping and accounting. They save my life every month. Not to mention helping me catch up on seven years of taxes. These guys/gals are amazing. I recommend everyone with a small biz to use them. It’s like Quickbooks accounting software but you get a personal bookkeeper with it who gets to know you and your business.
After I put all my regular expenses in their proper categories it becomes mostly automated. I recommend getting in there periodically to make sure the random stray charges are in their correct category.
I also use this app called MileIQ that tracks my mileage for taxes. You just swipe left or right to tell it whether your trip was for business or personal. This helps a lot too if you itemize at the end of the year.
Ok I’m a little embarrassed that it took me so long to get my Yahoo Gemini Dot Tag conversion tracking/pixel to fire with Google Tag Manager but I’m happy to report it’s working like a dream now and I understand conversion tracking better than ever.
Here’s how to do it.
Install GTM on your site. (Obvi)
Create a new GTM tag for your conversion event.
Add the Yahoo Dot Tag base code as a separate tag into GTM. (The base code and event code will be separate tags)
Create the conversion event in the Yahoo UI.
Add the conversion event as a separate tag in GTM.
Double check for typos/and details of the pixel (this is where I got stuck)
Check to see if it’s firing with GTM pixel helper.
