It’s a fact, that free Internet tools are very popular these days.
That’s because life as an Internet marketer isn’t easy. You have to be an expert on quite a few disciplines. Which takes a lot of time, the only asset we can NOT buy.
That’s why you’ll need extra help. So you spend money on traffic, services and software. And that doesn’t come cheap. If you’ve been working in the Internet marketing area for some time, you already know that nothing is free!
That’s where the free Internet tools come in. They can potentially save you thousands of dollars that you can re-invest in your Internet marketing efforts.
Here are 5 free Internet tools that you can use in your daily business.
- Market Samurai
What really amazes me is how many marketers just don’t know that this free version of Market Samurai really exists.
You can use the keyword research tool for free even after the trial period. Just download the free copy of Market Samurai.
For more in-depth link analysis, you will have to buy Market Samurai, but the free version has a few great features that are just about enough to perform basic research.
- Web design software
Most web design software costs hundreds of dollars, but these free Internet tools can do exactly the same.
Creating a new, professional website on your domain instead of a WordPress blog, becomes a breeze using NVU or Kompozer. This software makes it easy for a new marketer to get a head start by utilizing WYSIWYG web page editing. Rather than for expensive professional web designers, it really is designed for novices in this area.
- Domain Name Analyzer
Noticing great domain names that are still available today is a real pain in the butt. You can therefore do yourself a favor by downloading an Internet tool like Domain Name Analyzer. This software program lets you find domains that may be available now by simply checking IP addressess of domain names that you type in. This works a lot faster than online services!

- Cam Studio
This screen recording video software is the free alternative to Camtasia. All experts will endorse you to buy Camtasia (guess why?). Only few people mention CamStudio. This software isn’t as sophisticated as its big brother and it doesn’t get the support that big brother gets because it is free software. But it certainly gets the basic jobs done. And the learning curve isn’t steep.
So, if you can’t spend the money, then CamStudio is the way to go.
Jing screenshot and screencast software from TechSmith is an alternative for CamStudio. It allows you to capture a video for free up to five minutes long (and that’s long enough)! As the cost to produce videos continues to drop, more of this software is popping up all the time .
- SEO Dictionary
Have you ever visited an Internet forum where people talked about an issue that you didn’t know squat about? Being that guy who doesn’t know what everyone else is talking about is quite embarrassing. It is easy to make a comment that makes you look like an idiot, so if you are smart, you will not say anything on the thread. The SEO dictionary can come to rescue, because it teaches you everything you need to know about SEO, and it helps you instantly when you don’t know what a specific term means.
These are a few free internet tools that you should bookmark for daily use. There are many other Internet tools you can use too, but these are some of the tools that will save you a lot of money on your software investments.
