Saasu, SurveyMonkey and WordPress

September 5, 2011

What a nice three-way coincidence today!

As I spent the morning learning how to use the online accounting system – so that I could issue my first-ever invoice for Explore Communications for work that I completed to put together a staff satisfaction survey for a client using SurveyMonkey – I saw a tweet from Marc Lehmann (Saasu’s CEO and founder) explaining why he has just moved his personal blog to WordPress.

(Sorry for the long sentence, but I needed to fit in Saasu, Surveymonkey and WordPress, and explain the context for each at the same time!)

All three are great examples of the cloud-based tools out there that give you basic capabilities for free, and a low cost of entry for advanced functionality. Each application give you incredibly rich capability, only enhanced by the premium services available. For a new business like Explore Communications, with little upfront investment, I can build my processes around tools such as WordPress and Saasu, and deliver services to clients with applications like SurveyMonkey.

When it came to deciding on a platform to host Explore Communications’ website, I had no hesitation in choosing WordPress. As Marc writes in his post, “It’s one less thing I have to manage. I want to consume and produce content, not manage applications.”
