Don’t rely solely on what you have available internally to market your business. You don’t need to hire a photographer or buy a fancy camera to get professional and interesting photos for your business ads. You don’t need to pay a graphic designer to create you a custom font, and you don’t need your nephew to record a song on GarageBand for your Facebook video ad.
Score some free stuff, you work hard and you deserve it. Check out this month’s Top 5 list below, and get some free stuff for your business!
Royalty-free music to jazz up your ads
Free music is hard to come by, BenSound.com has a number of tracks that are available Royaty-free as long as you provide proper accrediation to the artist in your video. I find that a 3-second credit at the end of the video is worth using a song that doesn’t sound like a stock song. If you are looking for something a bit less commercial sounding, Audio Library on YouTube has a load of funky Royalty-free songs. Some of these are only for YouTube videos, so make sure you read the description of the video.
Copyright-free Photos for stunning visuals
For icons and vector graphics, try PixaBay where you can set a filter to search for PNGs or vectors.
Downloadable Fonts for better branding
Can’t find the font you want in the default list your program provides you? Not a problem. Search through hundreds of unique and brandable header fonts at UrbanFonts.
Project Management & Budget templates
You may have used Google Docs as an online word document, but Google Docs also has a bunch of useful templates for running your business. Most of them will need customization, but it is so much easier to change a document than to create one from scratch.
