5 Free Internet Marketing Automation Tools To Free Up Your Time

Sharing your blog posts via social media is a cost-effective way to promote your business.

But if you’re not careful, social media marketing can consume a lot of your time.

To make the best use of your time, it’s worth automating some of your social media activities.

One of the best methods is to automatically share your blog posts from WordPress if you own a blog to each of your selected social networks or share it directly from one of your social media pages in a network like Facebook to other social networks like Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, etc.

Automation is going to be the way forward for online businesses of the 21st century.

Those that automate are going to be the most successful.

There is an automation tool for all possible tasks, from content sharing, to email marketing and to paid advertising models.

The trick is to find the automation tools that fit into your lifestyle and business model.

Here are 5 of the best and free automation tools out there that you can use if you want to consistently create contents for your business blog or social media page.

5 Free Internet Marketing Automation Tools To Free Up Your Time

#1 – Facebook Creator Studio

Facebook Creator Studio is a one-stop social media content management tool within Facebook that helps creators and publishers manage their content, track performance, and connect meaningfully with their audiences on Facebook and Instagram. Think of it as a powerful desktop hub.

Facebook wants content creators, publishers, brands, and all kinds of different-sized businesses to be able to use this hub and share more video content. And really, that’s a big part of Facebook.

A lot of marketers might not even know that Creator Studio is available to them. Many are still using third-party tools to manage, schedule, and track content. But if all you care about is Instagram and Facebook, you don’t really need any other tools. Creator Studio is Facebook’s own built-in, native tool, and it gives you a lot of extra bells and whistles for creating and managing content, as well as deeper video insights.

Creator Studio is a valuable tool for your Facebook Pages.

It allows you to track and manage content performance, even across different Pages if you manage many.

The inbox view allows you to manage comments and messages directly from within the Creator Studio.

 

#2 – HootSuite

HootSuite is the perfect platform to automate social media strategies.

It can be used to monitor how your business is doing across different social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

You can see how your brand is performing through the simplified HootSuite dashboard.

 

It is also possible to schedule and update posts as well as to create social analytic reports. The ability to schedule posts is a powerful feature that many freelancers and business owners are taking advantage of.

It can significantly free up time for you to do other important things. HootSuite is free for a basic personal subscription, though there are upgraded premium options.

 

#3 – Hubspot

Hubspot is an inbound marketing and sales automation tool that is extremely popular within the online business community.

Marketing and sales is a difficult part of any business enterprise, and Hubspot can help to ease the burden.

 

It comes with a free customer relationship management (CRM) system and is free to use.

It allows for email marketing and automation, lead generation, analytics, meeting scheduling, customer feedback, and ticketing.

Hubspot has a massive online community that are very active and this is a very well-regarded automation tool that can streamline marketing campaigns.

#4 MailChimp

MailChimp is an email management service that can assist in streamlining email campaigns.

MailChimp is a favorite email automation tool for startups and digital nomads.

It is known for its ease of use and is the biggest email automation tool out there. Email marketing is still a very lucrative business model. This is because while people may change their social medial platforms, they tend to stick with the same email address. So building up an email list is a great way to keep in touch with potential customers over the long term.

Even aside from pure email marketing, it is always a good idea to maintain an email list to keep customers regularly engaged.

For example, those who are creating a blog will also need to maintain an email list and MailChimp can assist with this activity.

With MailChimp, contents can be scheduled throughout the periods you have chosen.

Gladly, it comes with a free use opportunity.

 

#5 Blog2Social

Blog2Social is a custom sharing and scheduling application for Blogs and social media posts.

Blog2Social automatically converts your post into the best format for each network you are using to create contents and market your business online.

Custom sharing with Blog2Social helps you to share your blog and social media posts in an optimal format for each of your social networks.

It has a free or basic plan in case you are just starting out.

 

I hope this helps our teaming marketing connections.

Enjoy your day.

Don’t Go Into 2021 Without A Decision To Start Selling With Social Media

This is obviously what you want to hear even if I didn’t have to state the reasons why I am asking you to do so before 2021 arrives.

But first, have you thought about increasing the sales of your products in recent times with social media platforms?

What is keeping you from taking advantage of this massive opportunity in your palm?

The rate at which people are now moving towards the internet lately has increasingly become a necessity for every business owner to think in this direction too.

So, today, I want to give you a heads up about a few areas you must consider when starting out with selling using social media, especially in the Nigerian local market.

Basically, there are hundreds of social media applications online where people meet on a per-second basis.

But for our country and the types of people who really are your target audiences, you must consider locating your business in just 4 social media platforms as you start.

Facebook Marketing Tool

The first is Facebook.

Facebook is one of the best and surest places to start with.

Of course, the others that I am going to be talking about are fast movers with a lot of patronages that you must leverage on, but Facebook has so much to offer that these others can’t at the moment.

So, start by creating a Facebook page first. I have talked about this in the past on my platforms. But if you still need a guide, kindly request to join my Ask Tim Abel platform where I can provide details for you to get started with this.

You can leave a comment here with a request to join the group.

Instagram Marketing Tool

The next is Instagram.

Instagram even though have extended the length of Videos today, still, rate behind Facebook for the vast opportunities these applications offer.

But you should also use it because people prefer shorter videos when they want to watch.

And guess what?

Instagram is making a whole lot of people rich today by availing them real-life values.

 

Twitter Marketing Tool

The next is Twitter. And you can’t afford to ignore this very special application.

But most times, I tell people that it is an app to test your content creation skills.

It will help you to redirect people to your shop or products on another platform. But it is one area that reaches far and wide in the fastest ways.

It uses shorter videos these days but still stands behind Facebook and Instagram in terms of videos.

 

YouTube Marketing Tool

Lastly is a YouTube channel.

This channel is basically for videos, even though they are advancing further with written content types now.

But it is your best bet to keep your video content. While you share it with other forums.

It has been monetized for a long time, just like Facebook which is following its path today.

But to be able to earn from it, you must be able to create so much of visual content (videos) that can attract viewers.

Having put forward, these facts, you must know that your business is not performing optimally right now if it is not online yet.

If you have a reason to go online and you have difficulties to do so.

My name is Tim Abel and I am the author of the book “How To Start A Business Without Money”.

My story won’t be complete without acknowledging the companionship, love, and support of my wonderful wife (Sheila) and my lovely children (Trump and Hills) with whom, I have kept this struggle until this day.

And above all is God who has continued to ignore my weaknesses at times of my inability to keep up with him.

I am telling this story today not because I want to be the superstar here, but because I know a whole lot of people are going through very horrible times in their lives and many have given up on life already.

My story is for these sets of people.

It is here to teach you some important things I have learned over the years especially as it bothers on trusting people, and leaving your lives for them and then be faced with disappointments.

We are more intelligent than the obstacles before us.

We are stronger than the perceived spiritual attacks in our lives.

We are what we think we are.

So, I urge you today to take a leap from this story and start changing things for good, better, and best for yourselves.

Never again, should you accept the defeats that stare in your face every day.

7 Interesting Ways To Run Your Business From Home With The COVID-19 Pandemic

7 Interesting Ways To Run Your Business From Home With The COVID-19 Pandemic

The fear of contracting the virus is a major factor hindering businesses from striving as they ordinarily would want to, this has brought a major setback for business owners and even those wanting to venture the entrepreneurial landscape.

But beyond that, there are several reasons why you need to start running your business even from the comfort of your home.

First is the cost of renting a shop, which in most cases can be equal in an amount as renting an apartment where you have to live and wake up every day to go to your shop or office.

You can agree with me that by the time you take a look at the total cost in a year, you would have been spending so much, yet what you probably would rake in as income or profit from your sales wouldn’t be enough to foot the bills.

For some people, the hurdle of going through the traffic without a sale a day is a devastating experience and nothing bites so much when in business as that as well.

Furthermore, this pandemic has placed in your hands the utmost responsibilities of catering for your kids since they are not in school for their teachers to look after them while you get busy at work or shop trying to make ends meet.

For those who are interested in running a business and have been thinking about the best opportunity to avail itself, I am certain it’s the time too.

And lastly are those currently employed but are looking for other income streams to beef up on their monthly take-home considering the huge monetary responsibilities that stare at you in the face each day.

Let me say that these 7 Ways will definitely bring succor to you if only you take to heart what I shall be revealing here.

Why Is This Important To You?

Yes, the question above is obvious and not farfetched.

I decided to talk about this today for many reasons but importantly…

Life must go on even in the midst of the coronavirus and other challenges

Responsibilities keep increasing without considering your paycheck

A lot of idle people wanting to get ahead in life especially as it bothers on finances

You may be running one and probably just using a method or two… But with these 7 ways, you can be certain that you have a bunch of ideas to explore.

So, let’s run through it……..

7 WAYS TO RUN YOUR BUSINESS FROM HOME:

1.  Use of Telephones – Cold Calls – Support With Social Media Shops

This involves the use of your everyday phone. It simply requires that you make a list of prospective numbers and call at least 20 to 100 a day to introduce your products or services to them.

Now, the method here is what we refer to as “Cold-Call”. This approach is best taught and practiced over and over before you start exploring it.

It is one of the best ways I have used to claim more sales amidst competitions from the comfort of my office and home.

Keep a tab with me on my blog and social media platforms to get a true life training for this.

2.  Use of WhatsApp Broadcast Technique

WhatsApp is another very useful tool for making unimaginable sales. I remember at a time when the value of our currency was so high… (Very high now too though).

I also couldn’t just change to Naira on Facebook because I was owing Facebook an outrageous dollar amount and I couldn’t just afford to pay it at the time.

So I explored this approach.

Got some numbers I purchased for the purpose of sending bulk SMS to.

Using Bulk SMS wasn’t getting me the needed results at the time. Knowing fully that to get results, you must engage your prospects in conversations designed to help or solve their problems first.

So, I adopted this approach.

I went on to create 22 Broadcast lists which would only accept a maximum of 250 contacts for each.

So in total, I had 5,500 contacts.

Each morning, I would create a conversational content and send as broadcast to all of them.

The result was unimaginable after a period of 30 days and doing it consistently each day.

That’s something you may want to consider if you are limited in your ads spend.

3.    Use Facebook Business Page Shop

You don’t need an E-Commerce platform or to create one because Facebook in their drive towards becoming the No. 1 earth’s market place has included this application to their platform for your use.

You can go on and thank Facebook for this great impact.

Now, this platform is just like Jumia on your page.

Where you can create your various products and hang each one with its descriptions, prices, and other stuff to simply help you to communicate the product essence to your prospective clients.

Go ahead and use that and thank me for it later.

At the end of uploading it, just go and do an Ad for it and your shop will be running just like Jumia does too.

4.    Use Instagram Business Shop

Of course, you know by now that Instagram is also owned by Facebook. And this platform seems to be taking over from Facebook with its huge user’s fan base.

That’s why most people target it for use today.

That notwithstanding, you can’t undermine the use of your Facebook page.

So, my advice is for you to use both.

This also has a shop and runs just like a Facebook shop.

You can explore it as well.

5.    Sell On Other Local E-Commerce Platforms – Jumia, Konga, Jiji, OLX, Amazon

I explored the use of this platform too in selling for my customers and my product as well.

Just as same as you open up a shop on Facebook as discussed earlier, so also is this method.

Once you go on these platforms, you would be allowed to open your own shop and create your  Shop ID which will be generated automatically while you give it your own name.

They will host your shop for you.

Now, if you are not based in Lagos to deliver your products to them to enable them do the dispatch for you. It may be very tough.

I don’t know if they’ve improved on that policy now though.

But for those in Lagos, this is where you take advantage.

Once your shop is opened, you can copy the link they give to you and start spreading it.

The advantage here is that Jumia and these other platforms have already built for themselves a Brand and have a whole lot of fan base or customers.

This allows for trust and you can be sure of people buying your great product easily.

Make sure you watch my video where I explained it further.

6.    Use Online Market Group For Advertising

There are millions of Online Market Groups on Facebook, as well as other platforms including your WhatsApp platform.

These platforms have proven to be one of the easiest ways for those who are not tech-savvy.

The idea here is to join at least 100 of these groups and ensure to be conversant with their rules.

Connect also with the Admins of these groups by privately chatting them and giving them the opportunity to enjoy royalties (Commission) from you.

Your task will be to create engaging contents each day and post on those platforms

There are free online tools that allow you to do a one-click broadcast and all the 100 groups get your content at the same time.

I hope you can explore this today by joining at least 20 groups for a start.

7.    Connect With Group Influencers/Affiliates Groups – Create Incentives 

Now, this last one seems similar to the previous one.

But in this case, you won’t be doing the marketing…

There are certain influencers in groups that people listen to.

These guys have gone ahead to create their own groups.

These groups are in most cases closed groups and would require the permission of the influencers for you to join.

Now, your job will be to look for influencers and connect with them.

Offer them a juicy deal for each sale through them

Generate an affiliate code for each one of them and ensure they use it to sell your products.

Be honest with them and ensure you pay them each time they hit a sale.

Now, depending on how much margins they are making, do your best to encourage them even more.

You will be smiling to the bank each time as they will be doing the work for you while you work on your business or focus on other more interesting stuff.

Other Methods Include:

There are other methods you can explore as well depending on the country you are currently living.

These methods include Google Shop Listing – Yet To Be Released For Nigerians; YouTube Shopping, and WhatsApp Shopping.

Of course the use of WhatsApp Story, YouTube Photo is already ongoing.

But you probably have to dig in further to understand how this works.

You can also stay here as I work towards having a good understanding of it and exploring it too for my own businesses before I can share it with you.

Possible Problems To Deal With

All of these methods are super active and free ways to run your businesses from the comfort of your home.

However, you may be faced with problems like payment collections, deliveries, and all sorts if you are not using an already established platform.

So, in case you want to take care of these areas, then go on to create a merchant store on one of the Payment platforms otherwise known as gateways to allow for the collection of payments from your clients…

Some of these gateways include Paystack, Flutterwave, GTPay, Interswitch Webpay, eTtranzact, VoguePay, SimplePay, CashEnvoy, etc.

If you are an individual business owner, you may just need to send them a verified copy of your acceptable means of identification like National ID, Drivers’ License, or International Passport.  And then other necessary documents like your Utility Bill bearing the details of your residential or business address.

For corporate businesses, you’ll be required to submit a scanned copy of your CAC Documents and once approval is given you can go ahead and start collections of payments from your numerous clients.

Another important thing here is creating a delivery method for the business if you are selling physical stocks.

I would suggest, that you go to motor parks and establish a relationship with the Union and then find local delivery companies who deliver within the town to take the responsibilities of delivering to the parks as well as delivering to internal customers.

On a final note, the success of your business will largely depend on your ability to stay on top of your content creation.

It, therefore, means that your customers must be well-fed with enough content as possible to keep them glued to your page.

For more on content, please go over to our YouTube page and watch my training on content creation.

So as you go to sleep tonight, and if you have read all of these threads, I would ask you these questions…..

And I want you to provide to yourself, very sincere answers please.

You don’t have to share it with me.

Just ask yourself…

– Is my current income enough for me and is meeting my dream life desires?

– Is my job giving me all the time to do the stuff I really want to do in life?

– Do I really have people looking up to me for their day-to-day livelihoods?

– Is my business bringing in the kind of sales I really want to have?

If you become really worried about these questions because it isn’t meeting your dreams, then I have just one word for you.

Change…

Join our 30 Days’ Challenge and begin to change you first.

That’s the most important thing right now.

I will see you again tomorrow if Jesus Tarries.

Be Great, Nothing Else Pays.

Best of Luck……

It’s Tim Abel.

Do This Every Morning For The Next 30 Days

What is that very easy and simple thing you’ve ever thought that you do every morning when you wake up?
I want you to think really deep.
In fact, pause now….. Don’t read or listen to me. Just go mute and concentrate to think through for the next 10 minutes and come up with the few things you do every morning when you wake up.

You Are An Influencer If You Already Own A Business

In today’s Economy, where competition is the order of the day.
If you don’t know you are an influencer as a business owner, then you’re probably wasting time.

In case you still have doubts in becoming the influencer in your niche, this is what Google defined Influencers as in Marketing

“a person with the ability to influence potential buyers of a product or service by promoting or recommending the items on social media.”

Now the question is, who is an Influencer?
