What are you favorite free tools?
Love all the resources you post. Thanks so much. I look forward to reading this.
I would like to email this or print it, but your blog is not allowing it–when I click on the ’share’ icon it flashes briefly and goes away. I want to share it with my PR students at UNT. How do I get it as a document.
Awesome resource! Thank for sharing.
Just a heads up that WTHashtag.com is now defunct (and I’m really bummed about it because I loved this free service!). I’ve used hashtags.org, but it’s not as good because it doesn’t show you the number of tweets with hashtags over a 7-day period like WTHashtag did. It does list out recent tweets with the hashtag though, and I’ve noticed it pulls in some tweets that Tweetdeck misses.
There are pros and cons with every free service. But this is a great list!
I think this helpful post and resource will give more good information regarding PR
Didn’t notice until I shared. This is a list we’ve been using for about 12 months. Will update!
Hi Samra. If you download it from Slideshare it should work for you. Let me know if you have additional issues. -Sarah
I’m a solo PR, so I can’t resist taking and sharing free tools. Like that you broke this out by category.. quick addition to Twitter, Buffer one I am thisclose to trying for myself as maybe a better way to schedule tweets. Also like that you call this a ‘tool kit’ or guide, as it’s the tools of the trade, not the trade itself. FWIW.
Hi Sara, I just listened to the webinar you did with http://www.roost.com and I liked the term “content marketing” and thought that point was very interesting and there was a lot of truth to what you say about original content.
I would add http://www.roost.com to this as a free tool to help with social marketing, namely twitter and facebook. Wouldn’t you?
I personally like the way you can schedule out your posts and keep a cadence on your page.
Thanks for the list. I am always looking for social media tools. Are there any free social media management tools that you suggest? Currently I like the following free versions of nutshell mail, bit.ly, hootsuite, rockmelt, postling, socialOomph.
Post having valuable information.Thanks for posting
wow this was so useful and saved me so much time searching the web. just like to say thanks for the share!
That’s a neat way to show your content. How did you do that thing with the scrollable box? Is that some crazy coding that you have to do or like a pulgin?
interesting shape, it’s flash? or something else. But the information useful, and its flow twice.
Although now slows down page in the browser, if it was just text all worked correctly.
Hi Sarah this is the best list ever for those who want to get ranked up over whatever search engine.
My favorite free stuff for WP specifically is the all in one seo plugin and blurbrry, they are both really helpful and easy to use.
After researching on “Sevans Strategy social tools” i can say that it is quite helpful.
@Web Design Spinx, I have to say that it is not just quite helpful.. It is very helpful. It’s almost all you need.
Great resources here! I am unable to click on your hyperlinks, do you have another version that has them?
Thanks for this one Sarah! It is the best list ever made!
Thanks for sharing this with us, Sarah. Nice to have them all presented and laid so neatly.
This is awesome – thanks! I’m a PR pro, and a HUGE fan of HARO as well. Peter’s service is by far the best – and it’s TOTALLY FREE! I hadn’t heard of ReportingOn or BeatBlogging though, so thanks for the tips!
I am aware of some of these and have put them to use. Some I signed up for and forgot about…but I will go back to them and give them a proper try out. Thanks ahead
@Ed: If you go to the document on Slideshare it’s downloadable (is that a word) and all the links should work for you. Hope that helps! -Sarah
