If you’re starting a small business, you probably don’t have much money to invest in new technology or software. You may be tempted to cut as many costs as possible and avoid investing in technology entirely. But that would be a big mistake. Technology is an essential part of any modern business, and the right tools can help you grow your business faster, reach more customers and operate more efficiently. Fortunately, there are plenty of free tools out there designed to help you kickstart your business.

1. Canva for Graphic Content Creation

Canva is an online design tool that lets users create graphical content such as posters, presentations, social media posts, business cards, and logos. Canva provides a plethora of design templates, fonts, and elements for users to incorporate into their designs (i.e. photos, videos, graphics, charts, etc).

Despite the fact that some templates, fonts, and elements are not available in the free version, Canva is a powerful tool that allows users to create graphics quickly and professionally – even with limitations. Upgrading to Canva Pro or Canva for Teams is a great investment for content creation when you feel the need or when your budget allows.

Additional tips for using Canva: When designing content on Canva, it is critical to create professional content while remaining on brand. You can upload specific fonts or elements as needed, or you can browse Canva's fonts and elements.

Make sure that your fonts are clean, legible, and professional. Here are our top ten recommended fonts:

2. Wix for Website Builder

Wix Website Builder is a great tool to use to build your company website, when you don’t have the budget to buy a domain name. To create a website for free, wixsite simply adds “.wixsite.com” in front of your domain name. You always have the option to purchase the domain name without “.wixsite” at the end later on, if you’d like.

Wix's free website builder is an excellent choice for small businesses looking to create multi-page sites with most standard website features. Wixsite simplifies website creation by allowing users to drag and drop elements and customise layouts as desired.
