That’s why we put together a list of 15 marketing tools, organized by category, to assist in your day-to-day marketing. Each tool on our list is easy to use, free (gotta love that!), and created to make your life easier. What’s not to love?
Organization and Focus Tools
With Pocket, you can save any article, video, (or anything, really) for future enjoyment. The in-browser app allows you to organize your saved articles by category (called “tags”) for easy navigation and can be accessed later on your desktop or mobile device.
During their free 30 day trial, you can personalize the type of music to match your cognitive type and mood, and track your productivity to determine which type of music and energy level settings keep you the most focused.
Workflowy is a tool that captures everything, in one place. A lot of people spin out because they have so many ideas, and they are worried about forgetting something. I have an “ideas” area in my Workflowy where I can throw things that pop into my head. Then, I can pick from the area what is the top priority, and I don’t lose anything (even the random thoughts I have in the shower) because it is all there.”
Worklowy also works really well on your mobile device, so you organize your personal life — like your grocery list, errands, etc — all in one place.
4. Tweak Your Biz Title Generator
Enter the topic of your blog post, and BOOM, several title ideas are created. The tool even segments the title ideas into different categories, like lists, best, how to, questions, and even allows you to download all the titles into a PDF.
With the free version, you can gather quite a bit of information on what people want to read and share. This is another great place to find ideas for blog posts, and to see what your competitors are writing about!
6. Google AutoComplete
This allows you to see what popular searches occur that are related to the topic you are searching for. This is a great way to get the creative juices flowing for blog post topics!
7. Hubspot’s Blog Topic Generator
That’s where Hubspot’s Blog Topic Generator comes in! You simply input three different nouns into the tool, and the Topic Generator gives you five different topic ideas. Not all of the generated suggestions will be perfect, or even usable, but you can adjust them slightly to make them work for you.
Social Media Tools
Hootsuite allows you to manage all of your social media channels in one place! That means no jumping around from Facebook to Twiiter, then back to Facebook again. With Hootsuite, you can schedule posts for all your social media channels. The good news? You only need to remember one login!
Use Canva! It’s a browser-based tool that brings sophisticated design abilities to everyone, and it’s easy to use. Canva provides pre-sized social media templates, designer templates to give you inspiration and a jumping-off point, icons, shapes, and many free images.
You can also buy stock images for just $1 each right on the site. One click allows you to fill your templates, and then you can drag and drop items to make them even better. Canva allows you to save and download your images and makes it easy to duplicate the templates you have created to make sure your branding stays consistent.
