Default What do you think of "Business-in-a-Box"?
This is THE current big thing that keeps popping up and being advertised. I see a lot of good templates in this product, but a lot of this information is offered here on VAF at a much more reasonable price.

Take a look at "Business-in-a-Box" and tell us what you think.

They are expensive however many people will buy them because they have everything you need (and more) for your business in one tidy area. I am a researcher by nature so I would not pay for this service but there are others who would gladly take advantage.

I would have to agree with Lee that they do tend to be expensive. And if you are looking for an all-in-one package it might very well be what you need. On the other hand, there are things that are going to be unique to your business. It might be in regards where you are located or how you want to set your business up and you are going to have personalize it to suit you. I guess its a matter of weighing the cost of convenience against doing more of the research work yourself but keep in mind that no 'business in a box' is ever going to be custom made just for you and your business so is it worth spending the money?

Hi ladies -
Yes, that was what I thought also - but I just wanted to get others' reactions to it.

Thanks so much for responding!
=)

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and this is my first post . Also, I'm in the setting up phase of my business so I'm still researching anything and everything.

I downloaded Business in a Box as a trial version and it looks good. They say that there is 1,500 different business documents and you can work them to suit your personal needs. As a trial version, I can't download them or edit them, only look at them. But being such a great typist (), I can easily re-type any documents as I need them. I probably shouldn't but hey, I'm on a shoestring here.

Business in a Box is Australian which suits my needs very well and the price to me seems fine especially for the amount of work that's been put into the product. It may seem expensive to everyone but the Australian cost of living and personal wages and income is very high compared to other countries. Even my rates seem to be higher than my overseas colleagues, however they are competitive to my local Australian market.

Anyway, I'm still testing it and it seems like a very good product and I think worth the cost.

Regards, Karen

This was one item I researched and did not feel it is worth the money.

I "lol-ed" at the great typist part. Not entirely sure that this is worth the money either; it looks like you are paying for a lot but in reality, you would probably only need a small fraction of those documents.
