Everyone is looking to save time. Here is a list of 5 free tools I use most days to get things done. All are easy to use and can save a lot of frustration in a day at work.

SEOquake:
I’m starting with this SEO tool since I do SEO. SEOquake “is a free plugin that provides you with key SEO metrics”. I use it every day. It provides a great starting point when researching competitor’s websites, or checking on the performance of your own site.

Download as a Chrome extension and you’re away!

Snapseed:
Snapseed is a photo editing app ( Google Play and App Store). It has an array of tools to enhance the look of your photos. There are plenty of photo editing apps in the market.

I like Snapseed as it is straightforward to use and gets the job down for a quick post to social media, emailing to others, or saving to your library.

Grammarly:
This is pretty common now. It seems to be promoted wherever I go on the web.

However, I think it’s still important to mention Grammarly. It’s a valuable highlighter of spelling errors, grammar mistakes, and typos.

It’s a Chrome extension, that is a must-have.

Google Drive:
Google Drive allows you to easily share large files – it’s my go-to for this purpose. There are other options such as OneDrive and Dropbox, but Google Drive suits me best, as I am a heavy user of other G Suite tools such as Docs and Slides. Free to start with, with affordable options if you need more storage.

Zoom:
Zoom is pretty high profile now. It has had a huge uptake because of people working from home due to the Coronavirus; plus it has faced complaints in relation to security issues.

As a way to connect, it’s great. It has a stack of features, and his “Solid” when meetings are running. There are other options such as Microsoft Teams and Skype. So, it’s more a matter of preference and dependent on software others are wanting to connect with.
