I am looking for a tool, and yet to find one that will do most of what I need.

I have a "couple" of web sites.

I need a tool, that can:

  • Track accounting, expenses, income sources
  • Monitor ranking in search engines
  • Track visitors in various ways
  • Track marketing efforts - and link them to ranking and visitor traffic
  • Manage relationship where I am the buyer
  • Manage relationship where I am the seller
  • Manage relationship where I traded
  • Do all this with a web interface

    I presume there is no such single product - or one could use external sources to cobble something together.

    What do you use to manage your web-site business?
    Please, don't tell me Quicken, Quickbooks, Money or Excel spreadsheet.

    Although Quickbooks is fine for accounting, I have not had good luck with managing everything else - nor could I make it work through the web.

    - Track accounting, expenses, income sources

    We ended up hiring a programmer and building our own online accounting, expense and income program. It cost about $500 to build and pulls in data automatically from our online store as well as being able to manually input data and create new revenue sources and expense areas.

    - Monitor ranking in search engines

    I use a separate tool for this. Do a search for 'free google rankings'.

    - Track visitors in various ways

    Google Analytics

    - Track marketing efforts - and link them to ranking and visitor traffic

    Google Analytics

    - Manage relationship where I am the buyer
    - Manage relationship where I am the seller
    - Manage relationship where I traded

    Don't know about these. We just use our email pprograms to keep track of our customer relationships. You're probably wanting a CRM type package though.

    - Do all this with a web interface

    That's a pretty big ask.

    You might check out freelancerpanel.com to see if it suits your needs. We are using MS Dynamics ourselves

    As a matter of interest, had you ever heard about such a package existing?

    Would there actually be a market for such?

    It sounds very much like SAP for web business, probably would cost a ton of money, interesting idea tho

    I never heard of something like that.

    I do not know how big of a market you would find for it.

    If the developer could make a deal with various vendors to provide API the tools, I believe it could be of value.
