Free Digital Marketing Tools
Start-up companies usually have very few marketing activities as they do not have budget for marketing until they start making money. However, it takes longer to make money without those marketing activities. Similarly, traditional old school small businesses are usually reluctant to invest on marketing activities and mostly rely on word of mouth. Nevertheless, in this age of technology, word of mouth is not sufficient on its own. In this article, I will mention some free digital marketing tools that require literally no funds.
