There is just so much free or nearly free stuff out there that it is hard to choose for this post but when it came to really just plain operating my association I found these free or close to free services to be indispensable:
- Formstack– this little beauty takes payments, has online signatures anyone can use with their finger, great analytics, your members can upload documents to you, easy to use form developer- it just cannot be beat.
- Dropbox– use it as your own personal business exchange server (Free)
- Animoto– create really amazing videos with music that is royalty-free
- Zoho– CRM for the small organization
- My Mobile Fans-easy to use App builder- now this isn’t free but its incredibly inexpensive and if you have any programming skills at all customization is really inexpensive
