We have all heard of the $100 startup, but free is way better, right?
Building startups can be hard. They’re worth it, although not easy, starting a new business can be easier than people make it.
There are endless tools that can help you start our business.
This is a concise list, as there are thousands of products and tools out there for startups, but here are some I’ve found to be useful.
1. Startup Stash
A curated directory of tools and resources to help you build your startup. This is a good starting point.
This versatile free tool helps track your time on projects for billing and productivity as well as offers invoicing templates for domestic and international clients, recurring invoices, automated payment reminders and acknowledgments, reports, client and project database, digital wallet, local and global credit card processing and more.
Here you can find free legal agreements. You can sign, create and send legally binding agreements in seconds. It’s simple to use and useful.
4. The Name App
A free name generator. Search for domains and social profiles for your startup. Helpful when first starting and trying to come up with a strong web presence.
5. Content Idea Generator
This helps you out with content ideas. I love this tool that allows me to be creative. Check it out.
6. Pablo by Buffer
Making captivating images for your social media posts for free. It’s super quick and easy to use.
7. Stock Snap.io
Go here for free beautiful stock photos. I use them when building websites.
This site features more than 1,000 high-quality designs made by Dribbble users. Most are editable and can be used for web or mobile. Such an awesome collection.
9. Type Form
There’s a free plan for creating surveys, forms, payment forms, etc. It’s an excellent way to display font on the web and mobile (Hiten Shah turned me onto this).
Everyone uses SumoMe now to grow traffic. It’s excellent for building lists, heat maps, popup email boxes, etc. Thanks, Noah.
11. Awesome Screenshot
This site makes screenshots simple, and it allows you to mark up the images as well. The website says it’s “the easiest way to communicate with images.”
