Hey Tania,There are many different options out there, some of which are going to be more or less appropriate for you depending on your budget or the CMS you use. A good solution for the dynamic content, Sales funnel, nurturing component of your question is Wishpond. Easy to use, powerful and good price and full of features (AB testing, pop ups, integrations etc). Of course there are solutions like hubspot, but these are pricey and often overpowered. An alternative though one I do not have experience with is Leadsquared. Again It does what you are looking for I believe. Was not sure what you meant by the ability for retargeting ads (that is more likely to be a code snippet on your site if I interpret correctly) though - sorry. Without wanting to be too presumptive either, happy to discuss further if you like, or answer any other questions around this, or if needed help with any of the strategy. Hamish

My answer will be brief but has several aspects:Backup records locally (potentially on your computer and as printouts)Backup records on a separate hard drive (thumb drive, etc.)Backup records in the cloud (the account service, dropbox, box, drive, etc.)Also, I would recommend keeping records based on the legal needs of your company. Some companies have a legal responsibility to maintain records much longer than companies in other industries.It's always good to have backup copies. Hard drives may fail, businesses may close shop, so always be prepared.

Google forms is OK. For email marketing forms, I've also tried Mailchimp's forms. They're easy to use. If you're using WordPress, you may want to check out form plugins such as Gravity Forms.

I think it depends on the type of forms. Are you talking about online forms, print forms or both? I typically use Google Forms for online capture. I've also heard good things about Wufoo (although I've never used them myself).

I'm an IT provider, so I'm across open source on at least a general level. I do have a linux server that's used for web development test site. I've got a client who has a linux-based file server and a separate linux proxy. It was already in place when I took over 2 years ago, but it's going strong and solid. It rarely needs reboots or patching.OSS does require a bit more understanding than a windows platform - there are notable differences and if you're not technically inclined it may be difficult to adjust.I don't usually see linux on desktops but I'm definitely aware it happens. I have a general policy of "what's the best fit for this specific scenario" - but that can encompass all sorts of things, including ongoing supportability. It's harder to find good linux engineers than good windows engineers

Questions

Can anyone recommend a warehousing software to handle e-commerce fulfillment?

Chris IoannidisOwner at Jedcart
Hello Bridgett it's not a simple answer. It would depend on the scale of the business that is requiring the software. If the business isn't big enough then the cost becomes prohibitive. There are various 3PL providers that can give you what you need with out the outlay. If you need further clarification you can contact me and we can discuss further.

Michaela hi and thanks for your feedback. We have opted to go with desk.com from salesforce  as it has some unique features we are interested in deploying and the API looks really user friendly. We intend to trial it for 3 months and then re access. Ill keep you in the loop on how we go. thanks again, David

Hi David I find that Zen Desk is one of the best, just due to the amount of features it has on offer and ease of use.   I love that you can record phone calls with customers and save the recording against the support ticket.  Plus it has a lot third party applications, especially useful for CRM programs.  Would love to know how you go with whatever program you choose.  Happy supporting!
