There are a wide variety of useful tools available to small businesses that are helpful in starting and maintaining your business model. We’ve put together a list of the ones we cannot seem to live without – most of which are… get this… FREE!
Bitly – This is a great resource if your business requires you to post links to an audience. Most of the time, the link is dreadful looking and long. Think of Bitly as your cleaning lady. It tidies up the link and keeps it clean. The system is very user-friendly and it’s FREE.
Google Alerts – Google Alerts can be forgotten, but it is powerful. It’s nice for businesses that deal Angola email list with clients because it allows you to set up alerts that come into your inbox when something you want to know about is in the news.
For example: If you have a client who is a weight loss coach, you could set up a Google Alert with the phrase “weight loss techniques or healthy weight loss tools” and whenever something is published on the Internet for that topic, you are alerted.
You can then forward the hot new information to your client. It’s an easy way to show you are on top of your game and care about their business model. The alerts can be set up to come daily, weekly or monthly. This is also completely FREE.
