My Top 5 Favorite Free Online Tools

1. PicMonkey: Free Online Photo Editor
I use and recommend this photo editing tool because it’s free and easy to create beautiful graphics for social media.

2. Hootsuite: Social Media Management System
This free online tool allows you to schedule posts to your various social media platforms.

3. Trello: Plan, Organize, Collaborate
I can use Trello to coordinate projects with my clients. We can share ideas, comment on proofs, and stay on top of the design schedule. This is a really handy collaboration tool.

4. MailChimp: Email Marketing Service
They have a “Forever Free” Plan for up to 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month. MailChimp’s built-in signup forms are easy to customize and share. You can also create forms and collect subscribers on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress with easy integration tools.

5. Satori: Online Scheduling Service
Schedule time blocks that potential clients can choose from for a free consultation. Or use it to schedule existing clients. You can block the time differently so that everyone sees only what applies to them.
