Posted January 7th, 2011 in Selling Online by admin

Who doesn’t love free stuff?

When you’re a bootstrapping entrepreneur, FREE is sometimes is your only option. That doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality though! (Hootsuite anyone?)

Here are five free tools we use quite often on our own sites:

Referrals are a huge chunk of any business’ revenue. Make it easy for visitors to share your website on Facebook, Twitter, and the rest with an AddThis button.

When it comes to tracking, what do heavy hitters like the American Cancer Society, Discount Tire, Yelp, Huffington Post, and RE/MAX Global Real Estate have in common? They all use Google Analytics to track their online campaigns. How can you maximize sales if you don’t know where and who they come from?

Stock photo library not cutting it for you? SmallBizTrends names their 50 Free Photo Sites for Your Small Business Needs.

Once you’ve got your photos, you’ll be able to quickly and easily edit them with the free services Picnik or Pixlr.

How do you keep track of what people are saying about you? Monitter instantaneously tracks a live stream of keywords, so you can keep tabs on your reputation, industry, and competitors.
