A variety of handy links, great sites, free and low-cost tools, and services that I recommend.
Also links through to sites that are mentioned in blogs.
Xero: A very cost-effective, easy to use accounting and financial management online tool. I’ve been using it for years. If you have staff who spend hours and hours maintaining your accounting and bookkeeping needs, you might like to look into this as an alternative. I bet your staff could provide a lot more value in additional areas! This handy link saved me tens of thousands of dollars in my first business.
Trello: Want to organise your life and share tasks with others? Fantastic system. Kind of like the online version of moving sticky post-its around your living room wall. Obviously a lot tidier… This handy link is a recently discovered joy and one of my new favourites.
Zoho: An easily scaleable CRM (plus many other function!) online site, that is free at the basic level. This handy link also comes complete with a helpful and caring support network at Zoho. They called and gave me a free online lesson so that I understood more of the functionality than I would easily discover on my own.
BIR Solutions: What sort of businesswoman would I be if I didn’t recommend my own business(es)?! If you are concerned about ensuring that your customers have the best experience that they can at the hands of your business, you might like to talk to us. We help you assess the true situation, identify any flight risks, train staff, integrate your strategy and even help you with your marketing communication.
Superhero In Disguise: Do you ever wish that a Superhero would reliably and efficiently clean your home while you were away? Would you rather spend your time doing anything else except cleaning? Sounds like you need a Superhero! Inhumanly good home cleaning. Cleaning with a single eco-friendly bound… Tidying like an OCD detail freak… Look! Up in the sky! It’s the Superhero Cleaner!
WordPress: WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL which runs on a web hosting service. Features include a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by over 18.9% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013. WordPress is currently the most popular blogging system being used on the Web, powering over 60 million websites worldwide. [This description borrowed straight from wiki]. NOTE: I used WordPress to build both of my websites. You can teach yourself too. No doubt a blog will follow!
