Tools & Resources

I use some excellent tools and services (both free and paid) to develop my freelance business online. So, I wanna recommend all the following resources to you. If I did not have a great experience with them, I would not put that here on my personal blog.

Some paid resources I mentioned here are affiliate products or services, meaning if you buy them, I get a little commission at no extra cost to you. Sometimes, you get a discount when you buy via my affiliate links.

Social Media

I explained about these social media marketing tools (with screenshots and all the necessary features) except Kicksta and SocialPilot in this article. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Kicksta – #1 Instagram growth service. It helps you to get more REAL followers on Instagram. More real followers mean good brand awareness which leads to more sales for your business. Not only for the business accounts, but it also works on personal accounts too.
