Inexpensive Apps and Websites that Make Marketing Easy
Unfortunately, it can sometimes be easy to forget about carrying out your marketing strategy. We get it, life is busy, and marketing can really start to add up money wise. However, lagging behind even a month or two with your marketing can end up being a major setback for your company. That's why your Bare Bones Marketing Team is here to provide you with four apps and websites that make marketing easy, and cheap (if not free!)
Canva is a website that allows you to easy create social media posts, infographics, newsletters, and much more. With Canva, you can choose from their library of pre-made layouts, or create your own from scratch. Whether you need to create a full-blown social media post or are simply wanting to add text over an image, Canva is a great resource. This graphic design website is free, but you can purchase a yearly plan for $12.95 a month if you want additional features.
Part of the reason that companies lag behind in social media is because it is so time consuming. However, Hootsuite is a website that allows you to schedule as many social media posts as you want, however far in advance as you want. You can sync your Hootsuite account with Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and more. Additionally, you can receive feedback on your posts to see what is working and what is not. You can integrate up to three social media networks for free, and after that you can pay $9.99 a month for up to 50 accounts.
Often times the hardest part of putting together proposals is figuring out the layout and design. Proposify allows you to access a gallery of pre-made proposal layouts that are easily customizable and pleasing to the eye. This platform can save you a lot of time and money, and allows you to focus more on your brand and content rather than the little details.
Wix is a drag-and-drop website builder that is extremely user-friendly. It not only provides you with endless templates and layouts, but also gives you access to a gallery of free photos. Whatever industry you are in, Wix has a template for you that requires little work and a great end result. Wix is free if they can own your domain name, and costs as low as $14.95 a month for an unlimited plan.
We hope that some of these platforms can help to ease the execution of your marketing strategy. As always, your Bare Bones Marketing Team is here to help you with any of these apps and websites. Contact us today at 512.571.2296 for a free consultation!
