There are tons of free internet marketing tools online that you can use to promote just about any business online. The difficulty can be sorting through all of the tools out there and finding which ones actually work.
I have been using specific tools for a few years now and have had some pretty good results in terms of getting my blogs to rank well on the Google search engine.
What Are the Free Internet Marketing Tools That I Use
There are some specific tools that I use to generate traffic to my site and to get “things” out there on the Internet.
While I talk about free internet marketing tools, there are a couple that I do pay for, but the costs are ridiculously inexpensive.
For example, socialmonkee.com is a tool used for submitting bookmarks and costs $7 for a basic membership which will provide 750 potential backlinks to your sites. The $7 is a lifetime membership, so it’s a one time cost.
Another great tool for generating some quick leads is imautomator.com, which will also provide 25 links per submission. This tool costs me $4.99 per month and is also more than worth it.
Now, as far as the free internet marketing tools that I use, hootsuite.com is a fantastic tool for submitting to social media sites like facebook, linkedin and twitter.
Turning Web 2.0 Sites Marketing Tools
If you haven’t figured it out yet, YouTube and some of the other hosting sites out there can be fantastic tools for marketing (video marketing) as well as excellent research tools.
Squidoo is an excellent site for promoting an opportunity online and creating squidoo “lenses” takes just a bit of time and returns big results in terms of both potential prospects AND high page rank links – squidoo currently has a page rank of 7!
Traditional Marketing Tools
While I know that article directories are not necessarily considered tools, there are free internet marketing tools like Free Article Submission Tool. This tool is a tracking tool that will help keep you organized as you manually submit your articles to different article directory sites helping you get the biggest bang for your buck!
Marketing online can be challenging, but once you learn how to become efficient and more importantly, effective, online marketing can be very satisfying. Using free internet marketing tools is just another way that you can promote your opportunities online and start generating income from home.
