“If you are not on the internet, you don’t exist,” says every smart entrepreneur. If you disagree, look around you. With the many free tools available on the web, we can conveniently simplify, optimise and make our life easier. To internalise the benefits of technology all around us, we can incorporate these tools in our businesses for maximum benefit. But how do we do that?
