FREE Tools for Any Business

There are so many free and awesome tools available to businesses today if they are informed and know how to use them (or know somebody that does).

Two of our favorites by far have been:

WordPress – Free to host on your own server and free to use if you know how.  There are a TON of free resources and training for WordPress.  Most of our own and client sites run on the WordPress framework.  It is completely versatile since it is open source and outside programmers can create plugins for it.

Google – Google has endless FREE applications from email to Website Management Tools.  You also have the choice of upgrading to their business email plan.  We use their software for a wide range of uses, but most widely used is the Google Drive Application for storage, document sharing and images.

Our FREE evaluations offer a review of your current business productivity tools, if applicable, and recommendations such as the above for how you can utilize FREE tools for everyday use.

Summer Special and New Website Launch

We had some great success with our Spring Special of 25% off web services and we wanted to continue to offer a great promotion for new or existing clients.  Our Summer Special has just launched and we are offering a $500 credit/sign on bonus for any new project we start now through August 29th.  This will be a nice bonus for those that couldn’t make the Spring special, but still want to take advantage of such savings.

Along with launching our latest promotion, we have launched a new and improved website.  We had been so busy with client work over the last year or so, that we hadn’t had a chance to make changes to our own site in quite awhile.  We love the new layout and functionality and hope you do as well.
