Small business owners want inexpensive solutions to their online marketing needs. That’s why we’ve put together this list of free marketing tools (# 2 is our favourite!)
With entrepreneurs feeling the pinch on their pocket, we look at 5 free marketing tools for small businesses:
Hootsuite is a social media management tool. They have a free 30 day trial which we recommend to businesses looking to create their own scheduled posts to social media. You can also view your social profiles in 1 place.
We like Hootsuite because it’s easy to use and their customer service is excellent! On the free plan you can easily sort through scheduled posts, mentions & followers’ posts by social platform- without having to visit each platform! You can view their reviews here.
Canva gives you all the tools you need to design. You can design almost anything on this – social media posts, presentations, flyers etc.
The free version of Canva has its limitations but it’s super useful for all your graphic needs (you can even mock-up a website on the free version!)
