Business tools

How do you pick the right tools to run your business? Does it matter what tools you use? Are you using too few? Too many?

  • Refreshing your site for new comments for your latest blog post?

Then you manage to get a sales page up on your website or a blog post and a link to buy it, but then no one comes.

No one clicks the link….

2 weeks go by and you sit quietly waiting for the first sale.

Then something hits you and you decide to go in and start double checking everything.
