    Web-based Software Options for Small Business - Your word processing software

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    In this arena, you are lucky enough to have a few options at your disposal before you choose.

    Word processor, spreadsheets and presentations

    When it comes to word processors online you have a lot of options, but to be honest, you don't really want to use one program for word processing, one for your spreadsheets and one for your presentations. No, that would make things so wasteful of your time that you would find it to be more effective to shell out for software. An all-in-one is decidedly the way to go for these three pieces of software. That being said, you will still have to get a great office suite.

    Some of your options for an office suite include:

    • Google documents and spreadsheets 
    • The zoho office suite
    • More options

    Now you need an email manager. It is, of course, easier to use web-based e-mail by itself, but if you can't, or you just want the ability to work with your mail offline, then the product that I recommend is Mozilla Info.

    Creating an online community

    Of course, if you want to grow your brand, then you are going to need a place for your customer or end users to get together and peruse online. You could get a simple forum such as a Yahoo Group, but for the real and complete social networking experience for your customers, I am going to recommend a company called Ning.

    Ning can give you the full package on a sub domain for free, or on your own domain at a cost. Either way, this software can more than do the job. It is a great no-cost way to make new connections, share photos and videos and create custom messaging to your customers.
