Small Business Tools for Online Marketing

If you like Google’s Webmaster Tools, then you’ll likely find Bing’s new Webmaster Tools helpful. Some of these look like they’re mirrored or modeled after Google’s tools. And they probably are. But that doesn’t matter if they’re helpful.

Small Business Tools for Organization

Evernote, Aa free, amazing suite of products and services designed to transport note taking and archiving into the 21st century. I take almost all of my notes in Evernote on my laptop or on scraps of paper that I scan with my iPhone. After a whiteboard session, I’ll snap a photo of the board and upload it — where I can search my barely legible chicken scratch without transcribing a thing. That article I don’t have time to read? Evernote.

Manage Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more all from one dashboard. You can setup alerts and tags, incorporate analytics, and auto-schedule posts and Tweets so that friends don’t think you’re a total dork for sending out messages at 11PM on a Saturday. There are other tools out there, but HootSuite is pretty solid — and it’s free.
