I don't expect to get contracts direct and a CV on a couple of jobsites plus a LinkedIn profile will give me much more return on my efforts.

    As you are acting as a business, do you have plush offices with your Incorporation and Insurance certificates framed on the wall?

    Regarding a logo, if you have one make sure it uses raster graphics so that is scaleable and that the colours suit being viewed printed as well as on screen. If you are going to have a website make sure it looks really professional as half the IT Contractors websites I've looked at are so poor and/or out of date that they would put me off hiring them.
    I never said it was - I was simply saying that in business, it's a business expense; as such, while it's money leaving your limited co account, it's only affecting that. Up to you; just like paying for a website template rather than using the free ones.

    I designed my own simple one that fits the name of the company. It's on my business cards, website, letterhead and invoice template, so it goes out to people.

    It doesn't make any difference really, but it's a conversation piece when I give out a business card because the company name is quite funky and so is the logo so it gets people thinking and remembering it.

    Default Vistaprint

    Vistaprint has some decent basic logos etc. for free. Used it for my business cards etc. with no problem.

    But, as mentioned, be very careful when clicking through to the checkout - there's a lot of 'extras' that appear to be selected by default!
