Imagine efficiency that’s cost-effective. Imagine technology that’s easy on the pocket. We may not be living in a perfect world, but yes, there’s technology that isn’t expensive, and there sure is efficiency that’s economically viable. To make my point clear, take a look at these three online services:

1. PickyDomains
Nowadays, the .com and .net addresses are so saturated that finding the perfect domain for a new website can be quite challenging. That’s due to the fact that millions and millions of top-level domains (TLDs) have been registered to date, and more and more are being registered with the ICANN everyday. If you’re new to the industry and don’t have much financial leverage to speak of, a branding agency to help you come up with the perfect domain may not be an option. These agencies charge thousands for their services.

PickyDomains is a naming platform that has been in business since 2007. PickyDomains makes full use of the power of crowd-sourcing to come up with names, domains and slogans that are catchy, easy-to-remember, relevant and unique. With a diverse and strong base of over 50,000 contributors from across the globe, imagine the number of suggestions you’re likely to get once you avail of the service. To do so, simply become a client by registering with the site, pay $50 if it’s a name or domain you need (or $75 for a slogan) and specify your naming guidelines. If none of the suggestions you receive is to your liking, you get a refund. If that isn’t risk-free, I honestly don’t know what else is.

2. JetRadar

After all is said and done, one thing remains: Air travel is still the fastest and safest way to go from point A to point B. With the arrival of low-cost airlines and online ticketing sites, air travel has become a lot cheaper as well. Unfortunately, the competition among airlines has become so stiff that some have been forced to leave the business for good, forcing those that have managed to stay afloat to confine their best promotional offers into their own corporate websites, contrary to the old practice of pitching them to comparison sites. As a consequence, the would-be traveler would have to skim through multiple sites to find the deal that suits his budget and travel requirements best.

JetRadar is a comprehensive search engine that methodically searches through more than 700 airlines and hundreds of flight sites for the best and cheapest airfare deals available, and makes the data easily accessible by the searching public in a single web address. This, in effect, allows a customer to save up on time and energy usually expended to find the airfare deal that suits him best.

3. Bitrix24

Technology is everyday an emerging trend. Among the technologically advanced tools being implemented by companies today are CRMs and intranets, all for the purpose of ensuring productivity and manpower empowerment in the workplace. These tools, however, may not be well suited for financially-challenged business owners.

Thank goodness for Bitrix24, a cloud-based corporate intranet application that’s free for small businesses with a maximum of 12 people. Bitrix24 aggregates several disparate work applications into a single
