March 22, 2007 in 4 out of 5 stars, A service

What is it? An online service that handles all of the necessary paperwork and legal documents for incorporation. You can do this paperwork yourself, but it's typically a quagmire of legalese and headaches. If you're running your own startup your time is usually better focused on building your business instead of dealing with arcane laws and forms for days/weeks.


Who makes it?, Inc.

Why is it the killerest?

For starters, their pricing is VERY competitive (incorporation costs vary by type (LLC., Inc. etc.) from state to state) - they're easily on the lower-end of the pricing scale out there. But they really make the entire process painless and transparent. Sign-up for the creation of a company is painless and intuitive. You can easily 'create' a company in about 8-10 minutes online. Collection of necessary data is not really much more difficult than filling out a few online forms - and they've done a great job of explaining things along the way. Better yet, they provide a whole slew of various options and additional services that you can chose, and when you're all done with sign-up, they keep you up to date on overall progress on their end. Likewise, their online 'dashboard' gives you access to additional business resources and links.

What could be improved?

Nothing. They've got a great thing going - their product is highly-polished, efficient, and intuitive. Highly recommended if you need to incorporate or protect yourself (i.e., LLC.) during the ramp-up of a new business venture.

How much does it cost?

Varies by service and state. Typically $200-$400

Great resource. Thanks for sharing. I just wish we had this when we spent the $1,000 incorporating OnCard Marketing.

Aren't there thounsands of companies that do this online, I understand it may be a bit less expensive and have a catchier website - but the sector has excess competition in my eyes.

Hi Joe, not sure what you're getting at. Are you suggesting we shouldn't review anything in this sector? Or any sector with excessive competition?
