We’re always on the lookout for the best marketing tools (free ones are always appreciated!) and here we share some of our favorites. Contact us if you have recommendations! We love to learn and share great marketing tools.
Adobe Creative Cloud
Whether you’re an individual, student, or business, Adobe Creative Cloud has a plan for you. Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop are must haves for a marketing professional. And Adobe Acrobat Pro is a business tool worth every investment dollar.
This tool is amazing! Enter your writing, and it shows you all the stats (readability grade level, reading time, and number of letters, characters, words, sentences, paragraphs!). Need a little help with your grammar? Hemingway has you covered with warnings for adverbs, use of passive voice, complicated phrases, and hard to read sentences. We love Hemingway!
Ok, technically not a marketing tool, but if you save money by expensing your travel, you’ll have more money for marketing! MileIQ is a super easy to use app. You turn it on when you get in your car and it tracks your business and personal mileage (and sends you a weekly report!). You can teach it to auto classify drives making it even easier! Try it for FREE!
This is a referral link that gives you 20% off your first year (that’s only $47 and some change for the whole year!), and we get a little bonus too!
Stunning FREE Images! Yes! It’s true. We use Pixabay for all our website images on XightSolutions.com. And they’ve got an app in the Apple App Store. Donation based, so share the love and and buy them cup of coffee every once in a while!
Texting on steroids. Seriously though, this is a great tool to keep your team connected. Set up your key communication channels (or topics), share files, search, even “pin” (aka keep handy so you don’t have to search) important topics and files. Best thing is they’ve got a free version that works great for most teams. Check out Slack today!
We’ve tried many different website development platforms and the Squarespace interface is simple, clean and the easiest for our clients to use to update their websites.
