Small Business Toolbox – July Twenty Eight

Each week I like to post useful tools and resources that you may be able to use for your business.  The resources I post here are either free or available at a low cost.

I don’t go into much detail here, so feel free to check them out yourself and let me know what you think.  If you know of any great tools and services that will help small business owners, please share them in the comments below.

Digital Product Delivery – A digital shopping cart service that let's you simply copy and paste a buy now button on your website for an easy E-Commerce setup.  Great if you only sell a few products, digital or physical, but don't want to set up a full E-Commerce store.

E Lance – Need a web designer or someone to create a logo for you?  Need someone to write the copy for your next product brochure?  Search through thousands of qualified people through E Lance from all over the world.  Be sure to read the profiles and reviews carefully before hiring anyone.

Have questions about the best tools to use for your business?  Contact me with your questions and you can rest assured you will receive a response!  Contact me here

    A corollary to eLance is oDesk. What is the big differentiator, to be, between the two is that oDesk takes random screenshots of your contractor’s screen six times an hour, so you can ensure that the person you’re paying is working on the project which you’re paying them to do.

    A cheap logo design alternative for eLance is Fiverr.

    Thanks for the tips Jason. I actually use Odesk much more than E Lance and think both of them offer a good service. The key with any outsourcing is becoming an expert at communicating with your contractors. As far as Fiverr, though I love the service for creative and fun stuff and even some work that’s lower on the importance scale, in the end you get what you pay for.

    Thanks Jason, cheers!
