100+ free small-business apps, templates, business plans and more

021c1203pmThe Small Business Web, an affiliation of Web application providers, has put together an online directory of small-business apps offered by its members. “We believe small businesses should have access to the same tools and technology that big companies have without paying a huge amount,” say the site authors.

One of the most useful features of the directory is that it tells you which apps work well together. Finding free or low-cost apps is pretty easy, but making sure they all mesh seamlessly isn’t. You can also search, find apps listed A to Z or find them listed by categories.

Another useful source: Over at Biz-Learner, check out this list of 50 free sources for sample business plans, templates for business plans and other forms and business documents, and business models.

Between these two resources, you’re sure to find something that can help your business, no matter what stage you’re in.

  1. If you don’t mind me asking what is the criteria used for selected the sources of these free resources. What i am trying to get ask is, are they of a high quality?

  2. We did not check out each resource. I would recommend that you narrow down the ones that sound interesting to you, then talk to your network or use social tools like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to post a question about those you’re interested in. See if others have used them and what they thought. Also do an Internet search and see what kind of reviews or feedback about the service are posted. Good luck,

  3. This is helpful small business guidance, particularly for those with 50 or fewer employees. Thanks for sharing this, Karen.

  4. Glad you liked it! thanks,
