Resources for Catholic Small Businesses
Resources that I would recommend for helping you run your Catholic Small Business
Over the years, I have used a number of different tools to help run Letters from the Saints. And, this page is for any Catholic small businesses who might want recommendations for software or services that can help them run their businesses.
Also, I am happy to meet with anyone who is running a Catholic small business. (Or, if you are considering starting a Catholic small business.) I have benefited from connecting with fellow Catholics in the ministry-business field, and I am happy to help if I can. (Also, no worries, as I have nothing to sell you.) Just use the contact form at the bottom of this page, and I will get back to you.
Note, that some of these links are affiliate links. If you start a paid subscription with one of these resources using a link from this page, I will receive a commission or discount on my subscription to the service.
Another essential service is a web site. Yes, it is possible to run a business without a web site, but, today, people who might purchase your products and service expect to find a web site. If they search for your company name and do not find one, they will be skeptical about your business.
Also, it helps to have a website to generate interest and to the contact information of people who are interested in your products and services.
From the start, I have used Strikingly. It includes everything you need to very quickly set up a professional-looking website. There are dozens of templates to choose from, and you do not need to be either a web designer or web programmer to use Strikingly to set up a website. It includes easy-to-use features that allow you do everthing from displaying your images to having forms that collect information from people interested in your goods and services to adding a store for customers to use for purchasing your goods and services.
Currently, I have three websites on Strikingly. And the annual cost for all three sites is equivalent to the cost that some hosting sites charge for hosting one one website.
