7 Free Business Tools for Entrepreneurs

Running a small business can be extremely time-consuming. As an entrepreneur, you likely wear many hats and are often pulled in many different directions. In order to help your business operate as efficiently as possible, you should always be on the lookout for new ways to help you and your team increase productivity. Sometimes just implementing a new tool can help your company free up time and resources for other tasks.

Here are 7 of the best free business tools for entrepreneurs to help you save time and improve some of your processes:

Trello is an amazing free tool that can help your company stay organized and better manage teamwork. From to-do lists to projects to meeting agendas, Trello has a ton of useful features that help teams create, customize, and manage workflows. You can delegate tasks, check the status of a project, and keep track of your team’s progress. In addition, you can access Trello from your desktop browser or an easy to navigate mobile app.

Coordinating meetings and managing booking from clients is a breeze with Calendly. Instead of sending emails back and forth or playing phone tag, Calendly allows you to send your availability to your recipients helping you save time and efficiently schedule appointments.

Canva is a graphic design tool that can be used to create social media images, flyers, logos, posters, business cards, charts, presentations, and infographics. It is easy to use and has premade templates that you can customize. There’s also a Canva app for quick designs on the go.

Buffer is a huge timesaver for small businesses who frequently post on social media. It’s an internet-based app that allows you to curate posts, preschedule posts, and create a posting schedule. The free version allows you to connect 3 social media channels such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest. Buffer also features an iOS and Android app.

An excellent choice for instant messaging with team members, Slack is a powerful tool that helps keep teams connected. Slack helps facilitate communication and is a great real-time alternative to email. The free version allows you 10 integrations with other apps such as Google Drive and Office 365.  

If your small business is still growing your email list, Mailchimp is an email marketing tool worth checking out. Their free plan allows you to create email campaigns and send them to up to 2,000 contacts. Mailchimp also has a mobile app where you can manage campaigns and add new contacts.

Need stock photos for a social media post, email, or a brochure? Pexels is an excellent, royalty-free option for finding the perfect stock photo for your project.
