Once upon a time in business, you would hold your cards close to your chest and play the business game with a poker face. But that’s not our style at all. We believe there is more than enough business for everybody and if we give more, we shall receive.

That’s why we thought we’d share some of the incredible technology that makes our business tick in case it’s useful to you or people you know. In most cases they have free trials available.

Freshbooks

How does having the ability to issue your invoices from anywhere, anytime sound? Even from your iPhone! Yup. That’s right. We’ve been using Freshbooks since 2008 and can’t believe we ever did without it.

With a simple PayPal account in hand, you are able to start to accept credit card payments online, without any other merchant facilities (so no overheads there!) and can even set up an automated reminder system which will follow up outstanding bills via email in a personalized but firm manner, ensuring your debt levels stay low and your cash flows.

PayPal

If you are running an online business (also known as a website) it’s highly likely that at some point you’ll want to either purchase or accept money online. If you are unsure of what level of sales you will be doing, or whether you can afford the overheads that come with being the overhead of merchant facilities, Paypal is your answer.

Among its features you can accept donations (one off or recurring) online (great for charities), allow clients to pay for and direct gift vouchers + simply accept money for a product or service.

MailChimp

We like these guys a lot because they offer pay-as-you-go plans + monthly plans, and they integrate with a bunch of add-ons so you can get things working between everything from your ecommerce to your accounts to your emarketing.

This monkey is a good tracker too - see who opened, what they clicked, who bounced, how many times people forwarded your awesome campaign, who didn't open, and more.

Easy Email Newsletters ►

Basecamp

This one won’t be for everybody but if you are forever searching your inbox for files related to a job or project you are completing for someone, you’ll love Basecamp. Simply set up a project, grant access to the client and all associated team members, then enjoy the benefit of all messages from all parties running into one long and convenient message thread.

You can also set up to do lists and associated deadlines, upload and share files and set milestones, meaning you can collaborate on just about anything.

1shoppingcart

This is the best 'all in one' system we've ever come across. You can do your broadcasts to all your database or segments of your database, schedule broadcasts for future dates, check open/sent ratios, place ad trackers to check what content is popular and which is not, integrate forms so that names entered on your website go straight into the database for you to broadcast to and that's just the emarketing! It also has an in-built affiliate system, ecommerce system, analytics, coupons and oh so much more.

All in One System ►

1shoppingcart

Constant Contact

Constant Contact is another popular emarketing system out of America. It doesn't however have the variety of functionality that 1shoppingcart does.

It really is strictly for emarketing, though it does have the ability to run online surveys, at an additional cost. You pay based on the size of your database in US dollars.

Vision6

Vision6 is very popular and is an Australian system but it's definitely not the cheapest solution around.

Not only will you pay monthly access fees (which tend to be higher than others out there) you'll also pay based on how many messages you send - not good if you want to get into your emarketing in a big way!

Mad Mimi

AWeber

These guys have been around for a while and really know their stuff. Apart from having most features you would expect from an emarketing system (templates, tracking etc) they also have extras such as comprehensive subscriber management tools which allow you to manage 'subscriptions' to your database, be that automate digital product delivery and post-purchase email campaigns.

Like MadMimi and 1shoppingcart they also have autoresponders which once you start using you'll wonder how you ever lived without them.
