You wanna run your business
not waste time testing expensive software
This site is software & tool recommendations for solopreneurs & small businesses, primarily online service & training business.
Because your software budget line item shouldn’t exceed your profits, and your tools should help you maximize your time, increase sales, and retain clients.
We’ve made the mistakes
so you don’t have to
Our team & contributors have invested thousands of dollars in disappointing software that overpromised and underdelivered, or that didn’t play well with other tools, or that had shiny sales pages but was held together by duct tape.
We’ll share the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of software for online businesses.
Tools should make your life easier
not make you cry in the shower
Just because we
love testing software doesn’t mean we expect you
to enjoy learning all the functionalities of every tool you use.
When we have to choose between easy or powerful, we’ll err on the side of simplicity every time.
Because you want to spend your time running
your business, not talking to a Live Chat robot.
