Hello WA Family,

Another day to learn and grow in the WA community. Free content marketing software is our topic for the day. Believe it or not, there are freebies online waiting to help you with your content marketing.

Content Creation Software

Canva is one of my favorites and one that I use often for my content marketing promotion on my website and my social media.

Canva

Canva makes it easy to create beautiful graphics, social media posts, and more. It has a free plan with access to millions of templates for you to choose from.

Hemingway Editor

This writing tool helps you to improve the readability of your content. I use this for every post that I write to make my writing easier for my readers to understand.

Google Docs

A free tool that lets you create and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. It's a great option for writing blog posts, and other content as well.

One of my followers shared that they use this as an online diary, something that I never would have thought of on my own.

Content Scheduling Software

Hootsuite

A social media management platform that lets you schedule and publish posts to multiple platforms, track your results, and engage with your audience. The free plan allows you to manage up to three social media profiles.

Buffer

A social media scheduling tool that lets publish automatically throughout the day. The free plan allows you to connect up to three social media accounts and schedule up to 10 posts.

Mailchimp

An email marketing platform that lets you create and send newsletters, manage your mailing list and track your results. The free plan allows you to send up to 2,500 emails per month to up to 2,000 subscribers.

Analytics and Tracking Software

Google Analytics

A free tool that provides insights into your website traffic, such as where your visitors come from, what pages they visit, and how long they stay on your site.

Buzzsumo

A social media tool that shows you what content is performing well on social media. The free plan gives you access to limited data, but it's still valuable for identifying popular content.

Content Software Advantages

  • The most obvious benefit is the financial. Free tools eliminate ongoing subscriptions, allowing you to experiment and refine your content marketing strategy without investing any money.
  • Free tools are available and easy to access, often requiring minimal technical knowledge. This makes them ideal for beginners just getting started in content marketing.
  • Many free tools offer a wide range of features, covering content creation, scheduling, distribution, and analysis. This allows you to tackle various aspects of your content marketing strategy with a single tool.
  • Free tools enable you to test different approaches and features without investment. This allows you to learn what works best for your target audience and adjust your strategy over time.
  • Many free tools offer integration with other platforms, allowing you to connect them with your existing marketing tools.
  • Many free tools have active communities and support resources, providing learning opportunities and assistance when needed.
  • Free tools allow you to explore different options without committing to paid plans. This can help assess the effectiveness of specific tools before investing in premium features.

Content Disadvantages

However, it's important to remember that free tools often come with limitations:

  • Free plans often have restricted access to features, requiring an upgrade to the full potential of the content marketing software.
  • Some free tools have a limited amount of content you can create, schedule, or analyze.
  • Some free tools display ads or include their branding within your content.
  • Free tools may lack the advanced features found in paid software.

Free content marketing tools can be a great way to get started, learn, and experiment. As your content marketing needs increase, you might need to consider paid tools for additional features.

About Free Content Marketing Software

  • Active communities and support resources can be invaluable for learning and troubleshooting.
  • While many free tools require time and effort to learn. Consider your available time and technical skills when choosing tools.
  • Choose tools that integrate with your existing marketing platforms
  • While the tool itself might be free, some might have hidden costs, such as limited storage space or charges for exceeding usage limits.
  • If you plan to grow your content marketing efforts, consider tools that offer affordable upgrades
  • Compare features, limitations, and user reviews before making a decision.
  • Be open to upgrading to paid options if they offer better functionality for your content marketing strategy.

Free content marketing software is worth giving a try. Many can be used effectively long-term and some might be better for when you are just getting started with your content marketing business.

Anyone have additional free content marketing software to share with us is encouraged to leave them in the comments.

Hi there, Jeff.

Thanks for providing these amazing posts. I had to start a Jeff folder when I saw all of your highly-effective articles. Finding the right software can be a daunting task. Really appreciate this information, my friend.

Rachele
p.s. I get online late in the evening. So, I miss a bunch of great posts like this one. Keep 'em coming.

Hello Rachele

I am happy this post interested you. I am honored you created a Jeff folder to save the posts that you value the most

Jeff

Absolutely, Jeff.

Love to seenyou take initiative to help our newbies.
I already see your growth and productivity and you've only been here for a short while.

Right on!
Rachele

Thanks for all the tips and information. very useful.👍

Hello Motly

Thank you for reading and commenting on this post. I am following you to keep in touch with you

Jeff

Thanks for the list, Jeff! I have used most of these tools, except content scheduling tools. Thanks for these references. I've bookmarked this:)

Teri

Hello Teri

I am the same as you. I don't use content scheduling tools myself either. Thank you for bookmarking this post for later usage.

Jeff

As a connesuer of free, I appreciate this list. I currently use Buffer, Canva, Google Docs for keeping my prompts, Sheets for topic lists, and Google Analytics. I used BuzzSumo, but didn't keep it. Don't recall why, unless it was because I had to connect it via zapier. And instead of Hemingway, using Gramarly. I may switch if it has a plagiarism checker on the free version. Quilbot free was too limiting.

Bottom line, great list. I'm grateful for your putting this list together.

MrDon

Hello Mr Don

You can use Grammarly for grammar and spelling assistance, but Hemingway Editor will help you make your content easier to read and understand.

Check it out
Jeff

Thanks Jeff, I will make the switch over the weekend. Enjoy your FriSatSun.

Thank you Jeff, marked as top for further reference

I use their plagiarism tool quite often.

Hello Dave,

It is good to hear from you today. I am happy you found something interesting to check into from this post

Jeff

Yes, I want to look at the Hemingway Editor. It could be of use to me.

Hello Dave

I recommend everyone consider the Hemingway Editor. It has improved my writing more than I ever imagined

I'll be checking it out later, its on my list.
Thanks Jeff
Bux

Hello Dave

I do hope you are healing well and are able to eat solid food soon if not already

Jeff

Not yet Jeff. I'm still on "baby" food. Stitches out earlier today so I have to be super careful that i don't burst it open again. That KFC and rib-eye steak will have to wait. Its a long road, but I'm walking it.
You take care old friend.
Bux

Hello Dave

I am sorry to hear that you are still on baby food. Take good care of yourself we all want you to heal and eat that rib-eye-steak dinner

Thinking of you
Jeff

It will happen Jeff, but I cannot risk it right now.
I will beat this thing - it's the only way I know.
And if I could smile, which I mustn't, I would still be smiling.
Time to hit the Z button I think - too much frenetic activity at the hospital today. Catch you Saturday.
Bux
