Online Tools for Small Businesses

DTI has advised that most of the tools or solutions are free while others have corresponding fees, and that its collection of resources does not necessarily mean to endorse or promote the products and tools.

The Department of Trade and Industry has made available a list of links to online tools that micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) can use to optimize and digitalize their operations.

The DTI is doing good in providing a starting point for Filipino business owners who are transitioning into the digital marketplace. With numerous resources out there, some of us just don’t know where to start.
