Andrés Gánem

Andrés Gánem is a Colorado-born, Mexico-City-raised freelance writer and content creator. He’s been doing that for a while. When he’s not writing, he should be, but you can find him reading adventure novels, playing video games, or drinking frankly unhealthy amounts of coffee. If you see him, tell him to put down that coffee. He’s shaky enough as it is.

PaymentCloud

PaymentCloud has earned a stellar reputation thanks to its high approval rates, outstanding customer support, and variety of features for both e-commerce and physical transactions. Though it could stand to be more transparent with its pricing and approval information, PaymentCloud remains the best choice for high-risk merchants looking for a trustworthy credit card...

Smartsheet

If you don't mind a crude UI, Smartsheet is a powerful software that’s good for managing both small and large projects. You can use it to organize a team, create stunning reports, and optimize your schedule.  However, Smartsheet can take a while to learn. And unlike most other project management software, it doesn’t have a free plan.

Leaders Merchant Services

Though it has a less-than-stellar track record amongst merchants, Leaders Merchant Services (LMS) has recently made a push to turn things around. Mostly, it’s been a successful one. A 98% approval rate, essential but reliable features, and top-tier customer service make LMS one of the best credit card processors around, even if some past frustrations remain unresolved.

Zoho Projects

Zoho Projects definitely looks good, and it offers fantastic value for its price. It’s a particularly excellent software if you are familiar with the Zoho ecosystem or you manage a small-to-medium-sized team. But while there’s much to love about Zoho, it can get complicated to use if you manage large, complex projects. Read on to see what I mean.

Luminous Payments

Luminous Payments’ (surprisingly) low prices, top-notch merchant support, and variety of POS offerings make it an exciting prospect for small- to medium-sized businesses that deal primarily with card-present transactions. That said, Luminous Payments is pretty new to the world of credit card processing, and its inexperience might be off putting to some merchants.

TeamGantt

TeamGantt is extremely easy to use thanks to its great-looking user interface (UI). It's an attractive tool if you're an inexperienced manager or can't wait to get your project up and running. But unlike other project management software, TeamGantt doesn’t provide much beyond the basics. For small, simple projects, that’s more than enough. For larger projects, it’s a...

Scoro

Scoro is a huge platform that includes project management, expense management, CRM, and much more. This vast feature set makes it ideal for large-scale enterprises, but its size and an intense, corporate-looking interface may alienate users. Balancing ease-of-use with that many features is always a complicated act. Does Scoro pull it off? Almost.

Asana

Asana has become increasingly popular over the last few years – and for good reason. Its communication tools and fun interface make it extremely enjoyable to use, and the free plan is great for personal organization. However, Asana is missing a lot of advanced features compared to other similarly priced tools, and this can be a problem for larger projects.

Unfortunately, STANDOUT has some considerable kinks still to be worked out. If you’re looking for a more polished builder with a similar approach to design, I’d recommend Squarespace...

How To Migrate a Site + Domain From GoDaddy to Wix [2022]

What happens if you've already built your site with GoDaddy, only to then realize that Wix's more advanced feature-set and intuitive interface make it a much better option for your site? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no "export to Wix'' button on the GoDaddy website builder. That doesn’t mean you can’t transfer your site, though.  Although there isn’t a...

Is Shopify truly the best store builder on the market, or does GoDaddy put up a fight? You may assume that the builder with the word "shop" in its title is the obvious choice.

9 Best Video Website Templates That Get Viewer Clicks [2022]

How to Build an Online Portfolio That Gets You Noticed in 2022

I have a confession to make: For someone who writes about websites for a living, I’ve always had an excuse for not having an online portfolio. I would say that I didn’t have enough material, or that I didn’t have time. Besides, it doesn't matter whether your work is on Instagram or a fancy site; you will get noticed if the work is good, right? (Spoiler alert: absolutely...
