Business Tools

Here are some business software resources that we (Mandy and Wayne) recommend. We’ve used them and we like them. We don’t work for these companies, but we do have an affiliate relationship with some of them and we can answer questions about our experiences with them.

Personal Growth from SelfGrowth.com

SelfGrowth.com is the most complete guide to information about Self -Improvement, Personal Growth and Self Help on the Internet. It is designed to be an organized directory, with articles and references to thousands of other websites on the ‘net. We have referred many people to this site as it offers plenty of great tips and ideas for how to improve your life and business.

GoDaddy

We’ve used GoDaddy for over ten years.  Enough said!

Odesk

We like these guys because the quality of their service providers – such as virtual assistants – is generally very good and their rates are very reasonable. Click below to learn more.



You Need a Budget

This simple budgeting software is invaluable if you are a small business owner trying to manage your money and get ahead of the game. We love it! Click on the logo below to get started.

Teleconferencing Program

Your prospects might spend 60 seconds on your website, but they’ll spend 60 or more MINUTES with you on a teleseminar.  The teleconferencing program we use is great and has earned us lots of cash. We do coaching calls, training calls, teleseminars, telesummits and webinars with this program and we would not be without it now as it is one of our top business tools.

There are other free teleconference programs out there, but beware – we tried them and found that many of our listeners – including those using Skype and Magic Jack – could not get on the calls. Try this one instead: Instant Teleseminar. Be sure to check out the video-tour and the 21-day free trial.

Email Marketing

If you are a small business owner, you absolutely must have a great email marketing service. Vertical Response is our favorite.  Send 500 FREE email newsletters with your VerticalResponse trial.

Creating Graphics

Paint.net is a great free program that is easy to use for creating simple graphics and editing photos.

Alternative to Buying Microsoft Office

We use OpenOffice, which is a free alternative to Microsoft Office.  You can create documents, spreadsheets, slide presentations and much more with this nifty program, and it is compatible with Microsoft files.  Give it a try.
