Services we Recommend
From time to time our client's ask us to recommend companies we know, or have worked with and who we trust, as a way of fast tracking their research on certain projects.
We have therefore detailed below companies that we are happy to recommend and briefly explain why we recommend them.
As every project is unique you will still need to do your own due diligence before working with them, however we hope that these resources prove useful to you.
Companies do change over time. If you have any great (or negative) experiences with any of these companies please do let us know. Equally if you have received an amazing service and think we should be sharing it with our members then please get in touch. All feedback can be sent to us via our contact us email link.
You may notice that everything we recommend is online based - this is because we believe that it should be easy to run your business from wherever you happen to be and not only if you are in the office. What's more, some of these services are FREE!
You can also track your 'sales pipeline' where you track bids, proposals and other opportunities and can see all your potential sales in one place. We highly recommend this easy to use CRM system.
Task Sharing Software
Online Accounts Package
Small Business Integrated Management System
Create online surveys or polls with SurveyMonkey, a very simple to use package. You could survey your clients, or prospective clients or employees through emails, social media or your website. Survey's can be custom branded and responses are automatically collated so you don't need to create any whizzy formula's in Excel to collate your data.
Outsourcing to Professionals
We firmly believe that small business owners should outsource as much as they possibly can so that they can concentrate on the important stuff - like growing the business! So where can you find professional freelancers? Elance!
Elance has 1,000s of freelancers around the world who will 'bid' to complete any project for you, from designing a flyer to writing an article. You simply select the bidder who you feel will do the best job based on their references, samples of previous work etc and away you go. We've used it many times and always had great results.
