    Vote on Best Website Platform!

    Hi Everyone, I have just started using Wix and I love it. The best part is that it has a blog feature of its own but can also be integrated with WP blog and it has all these great plugins.

    Project Management Software

    I haven't seen any fully integrated free options, but Getflow is OK and so is ActivCollab. The pricing is fair especially if you have a team. Best of luck! Carone

    Feedback on website/logo

    The website is clean and very professional. You have a dynamic logo and it works well. Just a few aesthetic items: --at the bottom of the page, is the footer bleeding through the Contact us bar? --on the payment page, perhaps add some image buttons-- especially for the PayPal option so...

    Business Bank Account??

    Thank you for the information on AccountNow. It seems that it would work as a quick fix but how would you receive the funds from clients? It looks like they would have to direct deposit to the AccountNow account? Is this correct? Many thanks, Carone
