    General business question

    Hi, I apologize if this is the wrong place to put it, but I'm not very tech-literate, but I do run a web-concentrated business (ironic).

    How do you folks deal with supplier-related communications? I mean, expanding a business takes capital, obviously, but I'm beginning to run up expensive bills using the phone to search for needed services. For example, I ran up a lot of money in charges just for directories and related features on my cell.

    Do you have any solutions?

    The life of an entrepreneur, man. Switch to a VoIP maybe? Use a free alternate like 1800free411? Conference with your team on Skype Credits? Computers will set you free, and if you’re on a desktop, chain you to it. Better buy a notebook, I can think of a few under $500 that are perfectly suited for a basic business.

    Will email work in your situation?

    I communicate with my subcontractors almost exclusively by email. It keeps everything organized, maintains a written record of our communications, and best of all it's free!
