    I am trying to decide on the right option for my phone, website, and mailing system. Does anyone have a good CHEAP recommendation for those three items? I want to get up and running and those are three items that I find critical before I generate my list and send mail. Thanks in advance for the help!

    I’m using Vumber for my phone. Plans start at $9.95/mo and you get two phone numbers.

    I’m using Traveling Mailbox for my mail. Plans start at $15/mo. A PO box at USPS would be the cheaper route but I wanted to be able to run my business remotely from any location so I chose a virtual mailbox service and Traveling Mailbox appeared to have the best bang for the buck.

    I’m using Carrot for my website because I already had a plan with them. Plans start at $49/mo for one website. My plan has 3. It’s not the cheapest option but I used to be a website developer and I can tell you that the old saying is true… you get what you pay for. I could easily build my own website and save money but the time involved in maintaining it just isn’t worth the savings in my opinion.

    Good luck!

    Shawn,

    Did you set up your website through WordPress and hand it over to carrot? Or did they set up the website for you? I would like to set up my own website with WordPress to save on some costs and then hand it off to someone to manage. Thank you,

    Ian

    Ian,

    Carrot sites are built using WordPress but they are managed through Carrot’s dashboard. They will set your site up for you and then you just have to add your company information and any other content you want to add. You can’t build your own and then hand it off to them though.
