  • Google Places- Gets your business on the Map with a pinpoint, and basic information about business. One of the first advertisements we did for Lifebushido to get the word out.

It is a paid subscription service and the downside is one subscription can only be used by a single person, additional people will have to sign up individually.

They also offer free service for personal use but charges minimal fee for work purposes.
    • Go Daddy - is a paid website but works best as a marketing tool.

For the latter, you can easily drag-and-paste pictures to create colorful pages. They even have several templates that you can use for the design. The good thing about the website is that they also offer domain name for a minimal fee, which makes your website looks professional.

  • www.authentichappiness.org-- Prior to reviewing this page for Lifebushido, I have had experience with this page due to my association with the Secret Society of Happy People (SOHP). This website is the home of Dr. Seligman and he is a pretty unique doctor. He directs the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania, and in a summary, he studies positive emotions and positive thought. He has numerous questionnaires on topics such as "Authentic Happiness Inventory," "Gratitude Questionnaire," and "Optimism Test" and in general his work is VERY useful for finding your meaning in life and identifying the things in your life that you find satisfying. I would HIGHLY recommend this site in conjunction with Goalbushido as a means of finding your joy! ~Cindy Taylor, Axiom Triangle. Grade A (coupled with Goalbushido)

  • Genius.com looks great! It offers good marketing tools to sell your products and services. I especially liked the Tracking Marketing Campaigns including Social Media Activities section. I noticed upon sign up you do need a business email account; You cannot use a yahoo account, must be something that tracks back to a business. So I guess you could use your work email, not sure about that yet. If you can get a corporate email account this would be a great service for marketing our creative projects. I did not sign up but would consider it in the future!
  • Grasshopper.com This offers a nationwide 800 number but you can forward it to your cell phone and receive calls anywhere and it only started at $12 dollars a month. I think this would be good for anyone not only running a business with employees but for someone just starting out who needs to be mobile and doesn’t want to miss a thing. I don’t think this would be good for our group right now as were not a business that needs a number but if we have other opportunities in the future arise for our group and Triangle definitely a service to check out.
  • SalesForce.com is a client management database that is easy to use and understand. It's features include instant messaging, calendar updates, a Facebook-esque platform that you can post status updates and even PowerPoint presentations, producing and sending invoices, the ability to post project statuses and reminders, and much more. The only downside is the cost; the smallest package is about $750 annually per user. There is a 30-day free trial so you can test it out and see if it makes sense to make the investment. I have used SalesForce with another company and loved all of the features and benefits, however, the hefty price tag takes my grade down to a B+.
  • Constant Contact (www.constantcontact.com) is an email marketing service that allows businesses to send email blasts, newsletters, event marketing, and surveys out to their business contacts. The cost ranges from $15-150 per month depending on how many emails you send out (if you send more than 25,000 the cost is negotiated). They have a new service called SaveLocal where companies can create deals on their products and services. These deals are email blasted out to the contact database and then you are charged between $3-19 for each deal purchased. I have only used Constant Contact for newsletters and thought the service was just OK. The site crashed several times as the newsletter was being created. This was in 2010. Grade: C Kelli Sanders, August20212 Triangle, This sounds like a great way to reach clients and Lifebushido members; not only for announcements, but feedback as well.
  • www.loveyou2.org This blog site has evolved from a woman’s love notes for her kids into a mini-movement of sharing love messages in various public spots. The site includes message templates, workshop information, photos of the public signs. One sign was placed at the location of an accident and the parents were grateful. While not directly applicable to Lifebushido, this site is a fine example of out-of-the-box thinking and the kind of values central to Lifebushido. I’m putting up a sign at our local market today.

  • Skype.com is something that I have used in the past to talk to someone. It is an IM type of tool but with video. It is a free web to other Skype user.
