Freshbooks Canada: Free 30-Day Trial

Freshbooks Canada: Free 30 Day Trial

Shawn told you all about Freshbooks last July in this blog post. Back then they offered your first three clients free, but now they are offering you a free 30-day trial.

So if you don’t feel like reading Shawn’s description of Freshbooks, take a gander at mine. Freshbooks is the #1 (self-proclaimed?) cloud accounting solution designed for small business owners. This means you can track your time, use online payments, capture expenses and do other accounting activities all in the cloud while at your desk or on the go.

Basically, Freshbooks says it is “built for small businesses owners to get organized and get paid”. That says it all. As a small business owner myself there is really three things I need – to get organized, to get paid and for more time, but I don’t think Freshbooks can get me more time, although with such a simple system, they might save me time on the menial task of accounting.

While FreshBooks offers a free 30-day trial, when you go to the sign-up page it says you can use the free version forever. I’m not sure what the difference is between the free version, the paid version and the trail version, so you may have to try it out for yourself and let me know.

Quoterollers: Free 14 Day Trial – No Credit Card Required

Quoterollers: Free 14 Day Trial   No Credit Card Required

Roll yo’ quotes for free at!

There are some really cool things being done with Software as a Service (SAAS) lately, and QuoteRoller is another great example. First, what is SAAS? SAAS basically means you are running a program in the Cloud. Google Docs is SAAS. Normally you’d run a word processor on your computer (like Microsoft Word). Now, you can run it on Google and just access them from your browser. SalesForce is the monster in the SAAS world, so if you’re familiar with their concept, you know about SAAS.

Before we get into QuoteRoller, the deal here is that you get 14 days of free access, no credit card needed. After that, it is $9.99/user/month up to $29.99/user/month, depending on what level you buy and if you are getting it monthly or yearly.

QuoteRoller lets you make quotes and proposals online and send them to your clients. Instead of doing up a quote in a spreadsheet or word processor, you just enter the pertinent data and QuoteRoller sticks it in a template (which you can customize) and then allows you to email it to your customers. They even have in-quote analytics which allow you to see what parts of your quote were focused on the most by your clients. That way, you can focus more on specific parts as you see fit. It even integrates with other services like FreshBooks. I think a FreshBooks and QuoteRoller combo would be amazing for any business.

Freshbooks Canada: Breaking the Time Barrier – FREE eBook

Posted by on June 16, 2013 at 8:00 PM

Freshbooks Canada: Breaking the Time Barrier   FREE eBook

Want to be rich and work less? I can’t promise this free eBook from Co-Founder and CEO Mike McDerment will help, but it certainly won’t hurt!

This is a free eBook PDF that you can read on your computer, mobile device and many eBook readers.

You’re probably wondering who this Mike McDerment guy is, right? And what is FreshBooks? Well, FreshBooks is a great, probably the best, service for doing invoicing. Mike McDerment is one of the guys who invented FreshBooks. So basically he is a successful Canadian businessman and he wants you to be successful too. That’s why he wrote this short book explaining how he started getting the money he was worth. He explains the book like this:

Before co-founding FreshBooks, I ran a small design agency. I felt like I was on a treadmill billing by the hour and not earning as much as I was worth, so I rethought everything. The result was powerful: In 2004 I worked 19 days and made over $200,000.

Now I’m not saying you’re going to be able to make over $200,000 by working 19 days, but reading this book won’t hurt. The book has been garnering praise from a lot of well known authors.
