Use Portent’s idea generator for titles to help you make up better titles for blogs, testimonials, products and other content.
A good tool to store links about destinations. Whenever you have a new customer, you can simply lookup links and send them a quick email that will just make you look good. A better option will be to prepare quick web pages with links to each destination, then just send a single link to that page. Update: Evernote has created a new tool that makes organizing your goals and ideas easily into vision boards. It's called Milanote and we recommend it.
Milanote is a tool for organizing creative projects into beautiful visual boards. By design, it feels a lot like working on the wall in a creative studio - visual, tactile and sometimes a bit messy - Milanote is a great fit for designers who work in teams remotely.
On a budget? Use TinyLetter to send free email newsletters to up to 5,000 people at once. Perfect for those once a weeks personal looking blasts that you just have to send out.

Buffer makes it easy to post to all the social media platforms with a few clicks. Schedule stuff and have it post at just the right time. Easy to use, and a nice free tier.
