BEST WIDGETS and
WEBSITE APPLICATIONS
FOR SMALL BUSINESSES

Adding features and capabilities to your website doesn't have to cost a lot. Further when you consider the lifecycle costs of websites, adding capabilities that are powered by external sources (widgets) that don't have to be coded into your website present a huge opportunity to reduce costs and increase the functionality of your website. We will also take a look at web development platforms. You probably know WordPress. The WordPress platform is the most popular website platform on the web but does that make it the right solution for your company? We will tackle this question and tell you why we don't recommend WordPress to our clients. So while we are looking for solutions that offer the best value, you should also understand that sometimes "FREE" has a cost.

Free Software Sites

FREE SOFTWARE DISCOUNTED SOFTWARE

OK - I admit it! I'm addicted to free software. And while the amount of free software available on the web can take you down the road to complete distraction, it can also compromise the integrity of your computer system and tax your sanity. I tend to rely on free and discount software services to run the checks and make sure I'm getting reliable software. These website will introduce you to some of the most useful apps on the web and offer free and discounted prices. Some of the software programs I've downloaded from these sites have a permanent place on my harddrive and I use daily.

BITSDUJOUR

I have been using BitsDuJour for years. Before you ever get the download, they run virus checks and have a very interactive space for each software promotion so you can see before you download what others think. You'll get a daily email with that day's promotions. Some free, some discounted - almost always useful. Definitely worth signing up!

SHAREWARE ON SALE

I've have received some amazing deals from Shareware on Sale. Don't let the title fool you, it's not all shareware. Notifications for the latest deal appear on you PC or MAC notifications. They also have Android and IOS free and discounted software. The occasional lifetime subscriptions have been extremely valuable and you can expect to see some pretty high end software promos that are free or have a very low lifetime price.
