Our Process for Recommending Tools for Small Businesses
As you can tell, we have quite a few tools and products recommended on this page ranging from online marketing to business operations. While we understand not every tool or product will be the exact right fit for your small business, we wanted to let you know how each tool or product made it to the list. Each of the following tools or products were evaluated on the following criteria in order to make it on the list:
Does the recommended tool solve a tangible need/challenge that a small business owner faces?
Have we personally used or currently use the tool in question?
Is the tool reasonably priced for the benefits/features it provides?
Does the toolset have a dedicated customer support team in place?
Is the toolset innovative at embracing new technology and the ever-changing needs of small businesses?
Common Questions About Our Recommended Tools
Have you actually tried these tools?
Yes! We would never want to recommend a tool we have not personally tried. In addition, many of these tools have been used by our clients with success.
Why do you include tools for operations?
Even though our services are focused predominantly on online marketing, as a small business ourselves and with exposure to hundreds of small business clients, we've faced many of the same operational challenges your small business might be encountering right now. We felt it only right to mention some operational tools we've found successful in our own small business operations.
Do you get paid for all these links?
No! First and foremost, we have compiled this list of recommended tools as a part of our mission to help small businesses succeed - even when that does not directly benefit us. While we do include some links in which we are a Partner or Affiliate with the platform, not all links fall into that category. As such, we do not receive any compensation for many of the above links even if you sign up.
Do you guarantee any of these tools?
While we have personally tried all of the above tools, we cannot guarantee any of the tools will be a positive fit for your small business. We certainly hope you find trying any of these tools is worth your time and energy, but we also recognize that some of these tools may not be the best fit for the unique setup and/or circumstances of your small business.
Is this list all-inclusive?
Absolutely not! As we continue to evolve and work with more small business clients, we'll continue to add to our recommended tools. We advise you to check back on this list periodically. If you ever have a tool you'd recommend we check out ourself, please drop us a note so we can check it out! We LOVE learning about new tools!
