Win It!! Microsoft Office Small Business 2007

As a busy work-at-home mom, I find myself constantly using Microsoft Office products, more specifically Word, Outlook and Excel. I really would be lost without Microsoft Office.

I recently received a copy of Microsoft Office Small Business 2007, and of course I am impressed by what this Office suite has to offer.

  • Word 2007
  • Excel 2007
  • PowerPoint 2007
  • Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager
  • Publisher 2007
  • Accounting Express 2007

You may already be familiar with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Publisher, but what about the new Business Contact Manager and Accounting Express?

In a nutshell, Accounting Express is the perfect software for small business owners. It has the look and feel of the Office programs you are already familiar with, which makes working with Accounting Express a breeze. It assists you in managing your everyday business tasks, such as payroll, invoicing, and inventory. You can also use Accounting Express to sell your inventory through eBay and other online marketplaces, and get paid quickly using PayPal.

Outlook 2007 helps you to organize your emails with category coloring and saves you time with junk e-mail filtering and instant search.

Small business owners will also love that with the Business Contact Manager you can:

  • Manage all your contact, prospect, and customer information in one place.
  • Manage sales leads and opportunities more effectively.
  • Get a dashboard view of your key customer and prospect metrics.
  • Customize your contact, prospect, and customer information.
  • Share information easily with multi-user access.

Microsoft Office Small Business 2007 is perfect for back to school. It includes the programs your children need, like Word, PowerPoint, and Publisher, while including additional programs for mom and dad as well.

I thought you would all enjoy this video. It made me chuckle a bit. It shows how small business owner, James, uses Microsoft Office to manage his cheese business. Keep in mind while it will get you excited about Microsoft Office, it might change your mind about cheese.

    My computer crashed at the end of June and I lost all my software so this would be a really welcome win!

  10. laurel says

    this would be AWESOME! i used ms2007 a couple of years ago at a job, and i loved it – we're still on ms2003 at home, and i use word, excel, etc., every day!

  11. dunmees says

    This would come in really handy in my new job. I am going to work with some small businesses in keeping their accounts straight.

  19. denice p says

    i thought that it was interesting that microsoft has added software for small business in the suite. it's really good that because it seems pretty useful. thanks!

  20. Adele Jones says

    My son just started his own landscaping business and his fiance is a hairstylist who is just starting her business. This would be a perfect gift for them. Plus I wouldn't mind some of these features.

  21. bmartin says

    i am still using Word & Excel 97. It is time for a change. They keep telling me to “get with It” so this would be a great surprise to my family If I won.

  22. kellyfrommontana says

    need this upgrade for my inlaws. just bought them a monitor with a webcam so they can skype and see our 3 kiddos (we are in Montana and they are in Nebraska). their version of microsoft is too old and the webcam software won't load:(

  23. baileysleaf says

    I miss Microsoft Office. I had it on a dinosaur that has since gone by way of computer learning games only. I'm currently using Works and once you've used Office, it's hard to downsize.

    This would be wonderful! Thank you!

  24. baileysleaf says

    I need this. I'm currently using Works and it isn't quite working for me. I miss Office.

    Thank you!

  25. Joseph says

    I just recently purchased a new HP laptop for a new small business I've started but it only comes with the trial version of Microsoft Office. The Microsoft Office Small Business 2007 would be a great software application to add and help me succeed in my new business venture.

  26. jawanamo says

    Oh, what a dream to own this software…especially since I'm about to launch my own small business. Thanks!

    Oh, goodness….my hubby and I run two small business out of our home and this would be so amazing to win. Thanks so much!

  29. Heather S says

    I have a very old version of Office and really need a new update so my docs are not in an old format. Thanks for the great contest!

  30. Tracey says

    I would love to win this! My husband is a small business owner and really could use a product like this!

  31. idahomom says

    It would be nice to have a newer version, because I keep getting stuff from other people especially the school that I can't read because it is from a newer version.

  32. idahojill says

    We don't have any of these programs on our computer, so I have to do things at work – I would love to have all of these at home. Thanks for the chance to win!

  33. Ed Donovan says

    MS Office is the king. I use Word, Publisher, and Excel daily at work. I would not like to be without them.

  34. bebobesq says

    I tend to favour SSuite Office’s free office suites. Their software also don’t need to run on Java or .NET, like so many open source office suites, so it makes their software very small and efficient.

  35. Jay F says

    This would allow my kids to do their projects now and over the next few years when they move into presentations and spreadsheets in school.

  36. SeahorseLady says

    This would be fantastic to have. Our version of Microsoft Office is from 2000 so this would bring us up to date.
    Thanks much for the chance!

  37. monicaduenes says

  39. auriette says

    Right now, all we have at home is Works. I would love to have the full Microsoft Office Suite so I can open files from work when necessary, and just to have the functionality.

  40. nikkis says

    I just took a college computer class and we used this program. It is a lot easier to use, and has great features.

  41. says

    I need help with organization – so much goes on in my life, in my line of work, in my family it's crazy! This is the tool to help me set it all right!

    Thank you for this opportunity

  42. sunnyview99 says

  47. Mary O'Brien says

    Would love to have this – Outlook is so much better than the default Window Mail.

  48. LindaKish says

  53. lorieshewbridge says

    Thanks for always having such terrific things for us.

  54. maryfrancesmain says

    I run a small business and would love to have it – I have a lot of older versions of the products!

  55. monkeymama says

    As a mom who runs a design service business, a boutique, and homeschools her kids (4 of the 5!), I cannot tell you how much this would help out around here!

  56. guettel78 says

    Now this is what I call a perfect back-to-school giveaway! I also couldn't live without Microsoft Office – I'm writing my dissertation using MS Word, and I teach and give presentations using PowerPoint – and I've been really longing to replace my copy of Office 2003 with the newer, spiffier 2007 version. Thanks for the chance to enter!

    Microsoft Office: Small Business has applications for all members of our family. For those searching for a job business contact manager looks like it could be a great asset. Thanks for a great site, and a great giveaway.

  64. heidiv says

    This would be ideal for me and for my kids we currently don't have word and they are using notepad for reports.

  65. Sylvie W. says

    My word, the sky is the limit with this software pack. My usage would be both for business and home.

    I sometimes work from home and have a need for this software because my computer came with an extremely, really extremely basic software pack. I would breath easier when we have winter storms to know I did not have to face the icy streets because the office is depending on me to be there. They don't drive at all in the winter.

    For my home use, I would organize so much. Accounts, recipes, music database. Yeah, orderliness.

    I'm crossing my fingers :) :) :)

  66. says

    This would make fabulous addition to the computer I just bought from a friend who moved out of country with her husband. Unfortunately it doesn't have any of these programs installed.

  67. Jennifer says

    I might me too late, but I would love to win this. I am hoping to work from home and this software is what I need. Busy with kids and going back to college…and working. Yikes!
