AIGHT, NOW BREAK IT DOWN.

1.     PIXABAY & PEXELS

These are my go-to resources for generic imagery.

Both Pixabay & Pexels have search engines that make it easy to sift though tons of crazy high res images all available to download for free. 

On top of that, almost all of the images on these sites are under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license.

This means you don’t have to attribute their creation to anyone even if you edit them beyond recognition or use them for commercial use.

Which one should you use? 

Pixabay is great for a generic stock photo hunt. 

Pexels is great for finding stunning photohraphy that is more on the actual art side of the spectrum than the stock photo side.

Between the two, I almost always find an image I can use.


2.     ICONOSQUARE

This is where you will obtain all of the Instagram analytics you didn’t know you needed.

All for free.

And all in one place. 


3.     HOOTSUITE

Okay, so Hootsuite also has a paid version that is much more doper than their free one.

That being said, their free account version is great for scheduling out social posts on multiple platforms. Hootsuite makes it super easy to create shortlinks, track them, and analyze them.

Other free features include some other small-scale social analytics avaialbe in downloadable PDFs and keyword tracking on multiple different social platforms.


4.     KEYWORDTOOL.IO

I was turned onto Kewordtool.io by our SEO pro at Corvidae a while back.

Now I use this keyword reaserch tool almost every single day so I can understand how my potential customers are interacting with their world. For free. It rocks.

I like to think of Canva as the Photoshop.beta ideal for making social content.

What you won't get: super high-quality, photoshop-level graphic design work on Canva.

What you will get: consistent, perfectly sized images ready to push to your social channels and plop into blogs and articles.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS IS THE BEST.

For real, Google Analytics is the dream of marketers of yesteryear.

All the creepy information you want about your market.

All in one place.  

Already put into pretty little graphs to impress your boss and clients with. 

Awesome.
