Thanks for sharing! This sounds like very useful tools - I'll look into it and add it to the list. By the way, I especially love Hootsuite!

Really? When I tried it I found it confusing and it didn't share images in the posts I tried to schedule.

Thank you for this message! I've been using Boomerang and Mailchimp tools already and they have been very helpful so far...

Thanks for this - I use Screaming Frog and Yoast and don't know what I'd do without them.

Don't you think that this very article and 40 tools are sort of overwhelming xD
Imagine if you have to go through all of them..

Here are the ones I've been using:

- SumoMe (I like it, but I recently moved to OptinMonster which is a paid-version only and I find it much better for my needs. However, for a free plugin, SumoMe works wonderfully)

- Boomerang (Amazing piece of software for your Gmail, but Yesware is much better imo. Too bad they cut the free version and made it a paid-only. If you use email regularly for prospecting, this is a highly useful app!)

- MailChimp (I've been using it for a while...But I am angry with them, they made Mandrill a paid thing which binds to your MailChimp account, and with that, they screwed so much of my work (I had created a WordPress mailing plugin which integrates with Mandrill))

- Hootsuite (Probably the best SMM app out there. I don't understand how you find it confusing, it has one of the best interfaces ever and it is just very convenient - I highly recommend it)

- Google Analytics (Of course.. it's obvious... who doesn't use it )

- Bitly (Same thing...)

- Google Webmaster Tools (Same thing...)

- Screaming Frog SEO Spider (Amazing tool. If you are into SEO, you're missing a lot if you currently don't use it!)

That's it! I have tried some of others as well, but I don't recommend them. The ones above are extremely valuable and they will save you ton of time and nerves.

What works for one may not work for another. If you really want stats and do not want to waste time each day checking them it requires that you take the time to look into various tools to find what works for you.

This thread is in the Online Business section where most that are new to online businesses check out. I just helped their research on what tools are available to mind their business.

I would say all of these marketing tools are fantastic and work for free. We can also include more in this list -

Quote:
Google keywords planner
Moz site explorer
Google page speed insight
Twitter Analytics
Pintrest Analytics
Xenu (Broken link checker)
Copyscape

I've been using HootSuite for years, and it definitely made social media management a lot easier for my business.
