As a new entrepreneur in the world of online business, you will find that there are hundreds if not thousands of tools that can make your life easier. There are so many that it can be overwhelming to try to use all of these. For now, I want to share with you some of the key tools that I have used and would recommend.
One of the most important things you will have to do is to create a landing page that allows your target customers join your list and SimpleLeadCapture is the simplest and quickest way to create high converting lead capture pages. You can create these in under 5 minutes… and For Free!
If you are just starting it is likely that you will develop a site leveraging WordPress. If so, one of the key areas to look into is to support your lead generation through Plugins. Lead Bar is exactly that, a plugin that will enable you to easily share your social media links and increase your lead generation with an entirely customisable bar that integrates with any WordPress Site. It is easy to customise, and you can claim your free Plugin!
Another thing you will have to do when you start is creating images for your marketing material to promote your business. Graphix Creator allows you to choose from 149 designs and create graphics in under two minutes. Now, you do have to pay for this, but the time it will save you it will be totally worth it.
For images, the best I’ve found so far is Canva. You can easily and quickly create beautiful graphics or images for blog posts, social media profiles, documents and much more. It removes the hassle of choosing a filter, selecting the right size according to the type of marketing material you want to publish and matching different fonts. Better yet, it has a great selection of stock for Free or for a fee of $1 if you want other images.
Videos are one of the most important ways to generate valuable content for your audience. YourTubePlayer allows you to generate and customise Youtube embed codes from the video ID or URL with options like autoplay, loop, hide controls, eliminate related videos and much more.
TidyURL is a free tool that allows you to easily save, organise and share your favourite links from around the web. We call these short links. You will have the option to then save the link to a particular custom menu for future reference. All links that are saved will be accessible at any time via the custom menu located on their dashboard when logged in.
As I mentioned before, there are more tools that you could consider but don’t want to overwhelm you. However, when you subscribe to my list, I can provide you with further reviews and recommendations for over 100 tools that can save you time and money as you get started!
