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.
Removebg – It removes backgrounds in images right from your phone or computer, so cool!
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
Wave – Free online video maker. You can make 15 seconds videos with the free version. AWESOME for social media posts.
Ivory Mix – Free monthly photo packs including some health + fitness photos.
Organization + Payments
Evernote – Share ideas and pictures across devices
Google Drive – Sheets, docs, slides, forms
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
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.
Social Media Icons – Free, fun, and creative options
Colorful Social Media Icons – Mix and match

While I use some of the free versions above, I have switched to Convertkit from Mailchimp (more features) and use WP Easy Cart now instead of WooCommerce (subscription billing is better).
I also pay for the paid versions of Member Vault, G Suite for Business, and Ivory Mix Stock photos.

According to Social Media Examiner… 64% of online entrepreneurs spend 6+ hours a week creating content!
That is A LOT of your time and money!
We have to constantly get in front of our ideal clients and make connections with them if we want to stay in business. And the consistent content you create will establish that connection and build a relationship.
Establishing “know, like, and trust factor” always comes before “selling”.
Consistency is crucial for a businesses, and even more crucial for startups.
