I love sharing little-known Web tools to help small business entrepreneurs, and I got pretty excited when I ran across this site because it has so much to offer — so much that it’s hard to fit it all into a short description, but I’ll do my best.
It’s called TradeBit, and it’s a place to go if you produce music or software or development tools for the Web. If you need a place to sell, market or buy such items, TradeBit is the place for you.
TradeBit gives you the opportunity to showcase your music, sound bits, graphics, software, whatever new digital products you’ve created, and market them. It’s a great site, and it has tons of stuff that people can download — legally. It offers sound and loops, MP3 music, and there are even full-length movies on here that you can market. It’s pretty amazing.

Now let’s look over at the other side of what this site offers. Maybe you’re a person who wants to come and purchase music or movies. Let’s use the full-length feature films as an example just for fun — these are not junky films.
These are movies with known actors such as Helen Mirran and Darryl Hannah; it even includes classic Looney Tune films — this is the real stuff. Prices for full-length feature films run between $2 – $3 dollars.
You can even use TradeBit to find (or post) repair manuals for motorcycles, for cars, ebooks that you can download. You can track your purchases, track your sales, it has everything. Go take a look at TradeBit.
Hard to Find 800 Numbers
This is another useful Web site. Sometimes you need to a call a company only to discover that they don’t make their contact numbers easy to find. Sometimes they even deliberately hide them!
HardToFind800Numbers.com functions exactly as the name sounds. You can search for any company, and often you’ll be presented with options for customer service, general inquiries or the head office.
Oh, and because the site lists 800 numbers, all the calls will be free, which is exactly as it should be. I suggest you bookmark this site for future reference, it’s a handy one to keep a note of, and you might want to also tell your friends about it, too.
