Hopefully you've used these clever tools for your business.

This week we'll look at a couple more that were covered by the Business Blue Print team.

Have you ever had someone ring and in a panic say "Your website is down, I can't do..."? This sends you into a panic right? Well, no more - just pop your web site into and it will confirm if it is your site or just someone having issues with their internet, browser etc.
