If you’ve got data to analyze, chances are you’ll be using Google Analytics—at least in part—to do it. Google wants you to use their tools, though, so they offer plenty of free resources to help you gather up data, understand it, and analyze it to make better marketing decisions—and drive revenue.
Adwords is the most popular PPC platform out there, and as mentioned, Google is undeniably important when it comes to being found online. Their free help center will provide you everything you need to know about PPC marketing, from the absolute basics to the nitty gritty details.
Platform-Based Social Media Analytics are the free analytics tools built into social media platforms themselves – on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more. Though other tools can aggregate your data, looking at platform-based analytics allows you to look at each account as a unique entity, devising different strategies for each social media platform.
These are terrific. One bit I’d like to add: I look forward to a time when we add a facilitation piece, not just a content push piece. We have devoted centuries to getting in, getting seen, finding buyers. But we come in at the last point of the buying decision path – when they make a solution choice. There is so very much hidden from us (consensus issues, systems issues, people issues) that have little to do with our solution and everything to do with their ability to buy without internal disruption, and current marketing capabilities are not addressing this. It’s not hard to get to buyers at their first idea and help them assemble their entire buying decision team. But we’re not doing it. I look forward to the time when we do.
Hey this content was great! this content reminds me of http://willcode.us/, it is a web tool the creates free email marketing and content marketing oppurtunitys for any and every business. The content that was shared has been a blessing….
I’ve used Hootsuite for posting updates to social networks and reviewing what others are saying for nearly five years now after using Tweetdeck back in the day – Twitter killed that one off for general use. Hootsuite seems to be comfortably the most popular free tool for posting and reviewing social media updates, but many still don’t know it, it can be used as a personal social media management tool too. It enables you to quickly post to all the main social networks including Google+ company pages and review conversations and messages. I’ve trialled many paid tools, but none come close. The paid version is worthwhile IMO for adding campaign tracking and extra reports.

Regular old, plain-flavor RLSA is kind of a shell game: You’re basically cherry-picking your cheapest leads from a larger pool. Yes, you save money, but your lead volume is greatly reduced! Most people don’t want that, right? We want more leads AND lower costs.
As everybody knows, headlines are one of the most vital elements of content writing. Whether you’re talking about a blog post, news article, or YouTube video, the title directly affects clicks. Use Headline Analyzer to determine the effectiveness of your titles.
Pawan this list is incredible. Just like others below are commenting, there are certainly other companies worth mentioning in your list.

The downside is that upload and download speeds will be dependent on your internet connection. Even with a fast connection, if you have a lot of data, it will probably take several days to do the initial backup. All subsequent backups are incremental (only backs up changes) so they won’t take as long.
What you name your website is also very important. And with the vast amount of domain extensions available, you’re no longer confined to what’s left in the .com world. So go wild or play it safe. Either way, make sure you pick a name that can scale with your business.

While a lot of marketing is about attracting new clients and customers, the fact of the matter is, it’s cheaper to retain a customer/client who’ll continue to buy or refer new business than obtain a new one. The best way to keep your clients and customers coming back is with good service, and staying in touch. Customer relation management software can help. With it you can note when you’ve made contact and schedule follow up, keep track of client birthdays and other important dates so you can reconnect, and more. Here are few free CRM software you can use.

Hey Brian, was just about to chime in here with the same info—this course used to be free (including all Coursera courses) with an optional upgrade to the specialization, but there was a recent change. I also told my social media interns about the course and that it was free; they were the ones that alerted me that it no longer was. Looks like Northwestern University in particular no longer allows taking courses that are part of a specialization for free on Coursera. I think some of the other specialization courses are the same now—even if you try to take them individually and without a certificate, they are no longer free. Too bad, because yes, when I took the course a few months ago, it was free and GREAT!
