I’m grateful for all the amazing companies out there that offer such value for so little. Here’s the list I came up with for free alternatives to paid tools. I’d love to know what you think!

That really helped us prioritise what to focus on. As a startup it’s easy to get lost and try and build too many features, or often you don’t know which ones you should be focussing on. Or you don’t have enough tech resources to do everything you want to do. So it’s super important to prioritise.

Heidi Cohen is the president of Riverside Marketing Strategies and founded her popular marketing blog, Heidi Cohen’s Actionable Marketing Guide. The quote above comes from her article, Internal Content Curation: What Most Marketers Miss. Cohen recommends performing internal content curation to save on content creation costs and build your audience for each piece of content. You can extend the use of your existing content by re-promoting it (via social media or other channels) or re-using it by adapting it into different formats that can be shared on different platforms.
Great list, except I would add that with Sumome, there is no way to avoid linking out to them without paying… I think it’s over $100/month? Having links on every page to a plugin or theme can hurt your SEO with Google, so I wasn’t willing to do that.

To collect emails for your contact list, you can add a form to your website that invites users to share their email address for something in return. For example, you could offer a free guide about your business or services, an entry in a drawing, or simply access to your monthly newsletter.
If you are asking people to subscribe to your newsletter, I also suggest you offer them something of genuine value, in return for joining your subscriber list. For example, when I was writing my newsletter, I used to offer a free ebook. I also advise that you only ask for people to give you their name and email address… not their whole life story.
The quote above is from the article What I learned about email marketing after losing $135,000 a day. Kagan discusses one of his previous startups, which failed when one of their largest partners banned their service and caused a catastrophic drop in sales. One of his biggest internet marketing tips is to have a direct line to customers rather than depending on Facebook or ads to reach your target audiences. Kagan says that Internet marketers should build and grow their own email lists. Email marketing is the most effective way to speak directly to all of your customers and maintain a stable line of communication to them.
