Online marketing is an essential part of any business. It is as important as brochure and postcard printing, as television commercials, and as face-to-face networking. Most business owners know that within the realm of print marketing are a vast number of tricks, resources, and options to learn.
The same is true of online marketing.
With everything available for freelancers from banner ads to Google Adwords, affiliate marketing and SEO marketing, article marketing and online press releases, marketing on the web can set anyone’s head to spinning before they even begin the process.
Very often, freelancers are in charge of every detail of their business, including marketing. As mentioned before, marketing in and of itself can be very daunting, but when it is one of a hundred tasks that you have to accomplish every business day, it can be very tempting to just keep putting it on the back burner. Or maybe you attempt some marketing task now and again, but for the most part have let your original marketing efforts run themselves.
However, online marketing, like print marketing, needs to be monitored. This is why it is important for you as a freelancer to know about the many helpful resources that are available online. If you are just beginning an online marketing campaign, there are also plenty of excellent help at your fingertips.
In an attempt to help fellow freelancers, I’ve compiled a list of resources that you may need for your online marketing campaigns. With this list, I hope to save you time and to provide you with some of the best tools to help you succeed.
Make the most of your advertising and marketing efforts with these five amazing tools:

a nice collection, thanks.
The World of Online Marketing is a tough world to be in but it is in posts like these that we find hope! The other resources you’ve given are somehow common to me but the majority are very much refreshing, most especially the SEO Tools since I was having a bit of a trouble on that note before.
I’ve currently ventured into this world with little hopes of making it out but I now have changed that view.
Cheers from the Freelance Jobs Guru!
Very good list, thanks!

As an internet marketer you know the value of good online marketing tools. You can save lots of money and time with the right online marketing tools..But what I hate most about being an internet marketer is subscribing to dozens of monthly recurring tools and services that I barely know how to use and having to track all those user names and passwords! .This one tool IMToolSuite includes a capture page creator web conferencing station contact manager video email auto-responder and much more..Check it out for yourself. .Talk to you soon..Thank you for visiting this blog!.Feel free to if you have any questions..To Our Home Business Marketing Success ..Inspiring Dreams Empowering People Transforming Lives.
Great article and a really helpful list! I think that while online marketing CAN be daunting it’s mainly because people think they have to do EVERYTHING.
Really, you have to understand exactly where your market is and whether or not any one marketing activity is an effective way to REACH those people. Adwords isn’t effective for every business, just like SEO isn’t effective for every business.
So the real trick is to fully understand your buyers and then use the right tools to attract them.
Thanks for the list. To my surprise I found a few new ones.. thanks again and I stumble this page so other can find it as well.
Awesome list – I signed up for number 2 – I’m going to check out the SEO Tools now – Thank You :)
