The Master list of Marketing and Sales Tools

Master list of marketing and sales tools
Trends and insights

The following is a massive compiled list of marketing and sales tools I’ve used over the past 4+ years to bootstrap dozens of businesses. Some of the tools below will be relevant to you, others may not fit your business.

 

The reason this list is valuable to you, is that you can use these tools to automate processes, save time, and make your business run more smoothly.

I’ve spent the last 4+ years finding these tools so you don’t have to. If you end up discovering just one resource from this list, then I feel like I’ve helped someone. You can get a quick overview of the tools in this list! Download now!

All I ask is that you share this list with friends, colleagues, and other connections to help those that could get a little extra bump in their business. Please comment on what you think, and if you found this helpful! Please share it!

Content Creation

Every business should create its own content. If you’re struggling to create your own pictures, documents, write up, guides, lists, ebooks, templates, etc. Then take a look at this list and find simple ways around doing all the work the long and hard way:

Website Analysis and Auditing

Want to see what competitors are up to? Or how well you’re doing with your website? In order to find out far you’ve come, you need to see where you’ve started. These tools show you how much traffic, social traffic, paid ads is coming to your site, where it’s coming from, and expose holes in your marketing efforts. You can also use these tools to find out what is working for the competitors.
