If you ever spent time as a fly on the wall here at Fonality, you'd probably hear someone talk about "drinking our own champagne." We mean we have a lot in common with our customers – who tend to have between five to 250 employees, and we develop and use our products based on the needs of companies just like us. We act like our customers in other ways, too.
Even though we've been around for 10 years and have 300,000 users, we've never stopped stretching every dollar. We don't have an in-house graphic designer or billion dollar marketing budget. So for every other scrappy marketer out there, here's a list of my new favorite free and affordable marketing tools.
They've since added a premium version, too. At $20/month, that's still way less than the big boys. (If you've got a bit more to spend and need a lot of photos like we do, Thinkstock has a great selection and the best search function I've found.)
These tools will never replace professional designers or talented marketers (at least I hope not!). But they are invaluable additions to my marketing toolbox. And now, maybe yours.
What are some of your favorite budget-friendly business tools? Leave a comment. If I start using your suggestion, I'll send you a Fonality tumbler!
