The moment I fell in love with digital marketing, I was broke. But as cliché as it may sound, if there is really a will, there will always be a way. I consulted our bestfriend, Mr. Google about the FREE tools I can use for a jumpstart. If you are starting small in digital marketing, then this is for you. Here are some of the FREE digital marketing platforms you can use as you start in your freelancing journey.
What are the best FREE digital marketing tools that you can recommend?— Lord Vincent Van Mendoza (@digitallourd) February 8, 2021
In brief, these are some of the FREE digital marketing tools for starting freelancers:
FOR SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT:
Buffer has a post automation or scheduling feature. Hence, you can place your posts you have planned in your content calendar. For the FREE version, you may connect up to 3 social media accounts (e.g.: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) which you can freely choose. For posting, you may choose to have only 1, or 2, or 3 channels at the same time.

Blogger is the most user-friendly blogging platform for would-be copywriters. There are free layouts available that you can customize to fit in your branding. The good thing about this is that it can be connected with Google AdSense. Meaning, you can monetize your blogs through it. But wait — there’s more. Blogger lets you connect your own domain for FREE! Do you want me to do a tutorial blog on how to do it? Drop a comment below.
FOR E-MAIL MARKETING:
MailChimp is a powerful e-mail marketing platform that does its job so well. You can send e-mail campaigns in a jiffy! There are actually templates to choose from. And btw, you can also create a FREE website using MailChimp. Plus, you can also connect your custom domain. That’s also for FREE! MailChimp can also be integrated with a lot of platforms such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, SurveyMonkey, PrestaShop, and a lot more!
Check this sample of the campaign I made.
FOR LANDING PAGES:
Brizy Cloud is my top recommended landing page builder. You just have to drag and drop and you’re certainly good to go! Did you know that recently, Brizy Cloud announced that they will soon add the blogging feature for their builder. That’s something great to look forward to! You better keep posted.
Bitrix24 is all you need 24/7. If you’re into Customer Relationship Management (CRM), this platform has everything for you. You can monitor deals in all stages in your funnel. You can even use this for team and project management. You can make a website using Bitrix24. It’s very light and responsive (though there’s a branding tag at the bottom, it’s still so good anyway). Check this sample for you to review.
