Vendor Recommendations & Referrals
I personally use and endorse the services provided by the vendors
below and I would do so even if they didn't have attractive referral
programs. If you need any of these products or services, please
buy from my banner links. If you aren't ready to buy right now, please bookmark this page and come back when you are. Income from commissions enables me to do more pro bono work. Thank you!
PayPal is the fastest, easiest, most secure way
to accept credit card payments on your site. I use it myself and have
implemented simple shopping carts on several of my client's sites. Their
instructions and support have just been incredible. Click the banner below and
check out the Merchant Services tab to learn about all the ways PayPal can help
you sell your product. Go ahead and sign up for a free Merchant account while
you are there and they'll pay me a bonus. Thanks!
iStockphoto is a terrific resource for inexpensive stock
photography, illustrations, video and Flash files. If you are a photographer it
is a great way to make a little (or a lot of - many of the photographers started as
hobbyists and have been able to quite their day jobs) extra money. This banner
links to my portfolio, which isn't so hot. So head for the iStock home page and
check out the amazing photography and illustrations at amazingly low prices:
Another fantastic resource for inexpensive stock photos and Illustrations is Dreamstime:
Founded in 2002, Modest Needs is an award-winning public charity with a simple but critical mission: they work to stop the cycle of poverty BEFORE it
starts for the low-income workers whom conventional philanthropy has forgotten.
They do this by empowering compassionate members of the general public to safely and securely help hard-working, low-income households to afford the kinds of
short-term emergency expenses that we've all encountered before: the unexpected car repair, the unanticipated visit to the doctor, or the unusually large heating bill, for example.
My pick for the best remote
email checking service:
A professional, scalable, hosted
PBX and fax service, toll free number included in price. Very
helpful if you travel frequently.
