I am often asked which tools I recommend to other small businesses to help them with their marketing and online presence.
There are so many on the market, and to be honest, what suits one business may not necessarily be the best fit for another.
So what I have done is chosen a handful of what I consider to be the best services - based on functionality, service, cost and value - and split them into two groups: those you are going to need to get set up your online business, and then those that will help you to take your business forward.
And how have I made my selections? Believe me when I tell you that I have tried dozens of applications, marketing tools and online services, and these are the ones that I use, and therefore have my heartfelt recommendation.
