Here are some of my favorite FREE and easy to use online tools that may help you promote and run your business.
Upgrades available for some – but they do offer free versions. Some are my affiliate links if you do upgrade.
Creating + Editing Images
Canva – Create blog and social media images, pdfs, and more.
Free Mock up Generator – All you do is paste in your website and it creates a mock up for you. I have been looking for something like this forever!
Free Mockups – A variety of options
Ivory Mix – Free monthly photo packs including some health + fitness photos.
Organization + Payments
Evernote – Share ideas and pictures across devices
G-Suite – Upload PDFs and files and use the “shareable link” to share so that you are not attaching HUGE files to email.
Member Vault – This is a really amazing platform to host a membership site or online program. I use it in my businesses and it is free for your first 50 users.
Ecwid – Create an online store
WooCommerce – Sell on your blog
PayPal + Stripe
Email Marketing + Other Resources
Mailchimp – Free email marketing up to 1,000 subscribers
Convertkit – Free option available (this is the email marketing platform I use)
Ontrapages – Free landing page builder
CoSchdule Headline Analyzer – Score your overall headline quality and rate its ability to result in social shares, increased traffic, and SEO value.
Grammarly – A Chrome plugin that offers grammar suggestions to help improve your writing.
Social Media Icons – Free, fun, and creative options
Colorful Social Media Icons – Mix and match
Media Kit Templates – Attractive and easy-to-edit templates for bloggers
Quiz Builder – Create unique quizzes and embed them anywhere!
Zoom – Offer video workouts, workshops, online training, and group calls.
Slack – Great alternative to email for communicating with your team, working on projects (I’ve used this with a web designer when she was working on my website), or for creating a unique community (I am a part of a business mastermind membership that uses Slack instead of a Facebook group).
While I use some of the free versions above, I also pay for the paid versions of Member Vault, G Suite for Business, Zoom, and Convertkit
