A while ago, I got a demo of Outright, a simple, free bookkeeping tool that makes it easy to track income and expenses, generate reports, and calculate your estimated quarterly tax bill. It's integrated with FreshBooks, so you can import invoices, payments, and other data. And it's also integrated with Shoeboxed, the service that helps you organize receipts and track expenses. (We wrote about Shoeboxed a few months ago.) All in all, Outright seemed like an easy, intuitive tool for a self-employed person—in other words, someone who doesn't need a full-featured program like QuickBooks.
Now, they're offering a bit of a bonus to anyone who signs up by the end of July: get a free domain name and a basic website from Network Solutions. Go to Outright.com for more info. Granted, this isn't a huge bonus; GoDaddy sells domains for $7.99, so getting one for free won't save you from laying anyone off. And the website is truly basic; you fill out some information about your company, and Network Solutions builds a very simple profile page. Nevertheless, this is a good excuse to test out Outright. Let me know what you think in the comments section below.
