The BIG list of premium marketing tools that offer free trials
#1
Here's a bunch of links to marketing tools that offer free trials.

Notes:
  • I'm not affiliated with any of these services in any way.
     
  • Many of these trials may require you to enter a credit card. I've posted on a few links below that some don't require a credit card...but be sure to do your own due diligence.
     

  • Set reminders for when your trials end if you plan on cancelling. Don't expect companies to break the terms of the agreement you agreed to and especially look out for yearly commitments. When getting a free service in is your responsibility to cancel on time.
     
  • A downside to using free short-term trials is the learning curve for each. For some of the more valuable trials I suggest you research the service, Youtube and Google for training before signing up. Get a running start and be as familiar with the services while you're on the time-limited trial as possible.
     
  • I didn't include trials to "ongoing" services like email and hosting where you need to keep paying after the trial period expires to keep the benefits of the tool.
 
With that said, there are literally thousands of dollars worth of free trials for you to take advantage of, all with a lot of benefits including educational and productivity. Often you can set a solid foundation using free trials that will benefit you and your business for some time in the future.

Not to mention the big advantage of testing something for free. If it works, keep paying. If not, move on.

Email Discovery Services

These can be a literal gold mine for those that know how to use them. Below are email discovery services that will help you find contact info for leads. One thing to consider is how accurate each is. One may seem less expensive but isn't as accurate, so use the free trials and see which work for you.

They are listed in my UN-expert suggested order you check them out.

Here's a good list of social media management tools that offer free membership levels. IMO it's probably best to combine some of these with PhantomBuster (see above) and Pheeds Frontier/IFTTT automation to give you a really potent marketing platform for minimal cost.

I didn't add WriterZen to the OP because I can't figure out if it should be an SEO/keyword tool or an AI content writing tool. IMO, it's best used as a keyword research tool and a content HELPER, but not really a writer.

WriterZen has a free 7 day trial here:
https://writerzen.net/pricing

There's also a special deal for it at AppSumo where you get a lifetime membership for $69. They give you about half the monthly credits of their normal membership, but it's still a great price:

A reminder about free trials...they can be a real time-drain because of the learning curve many of them have. You can often spend hours or even days just trying to learn a tool without actually being productive. Trust me, I'm an expert on this. Smile

Another risk is if you have to enter payment info. This opens up an opportunity for you to forget about cancelling and being charged.

But with the risks, there's a lot of gain on this thread.

Also:

Being on the clock can also make you more productive, knowing you have to get things done before time runs out.

Compare similar services before buying.

Save a lot of money if you're on a budget. There are thousands of dollars worth of high quality services and tools that you can take advantage of without spending money.

Reduce risk by testing actual results before buying.

Extend your access. If you just want access for a month, sign up for the free trial to get an extra week.

Use them as an educational tool. For example, many of the keyword/SEO tools will teach intermediate and advanced SEO principles.

Keyword Chef is an interesting keyword tool;
https://keywordchef.com/

It has a couple of cool features, especially how it rates competition for keywords. When you enter a root keyword, Keyword Chef grabs the top 10 URLs for each keyword phrase and then shows the number of "weak" sites in the Top 10 for that keyword phrase.

"Weak" sites are generally User Generated Content sites like Pinterest, Quora, Reddit and forums (like this one). If you see quite a few of these sites at the top of the ranking, the general wisdom is these keyword phrases have weaker competition.

On the other end of the scale, if you see a bunch of big sites dedicated to a specific niche, you should probably assume it will be much harder to get a top ranking for these keywords.

Here's a sample results page from Keyword Chef:
https://keywordchef.com/Discover/Reports...86fdef3fc9

Note the green dots with numbers under the "SERP" column. The number is the number of weak sites. The higher the better.

Other keyword tools include the top ten sites, but not the number of "weak" sites. Although, you can do a quick visual spot-check.

The con is, Keyword Chef seems pretty expensive. $20 only gets you results for 1200 keywords and cheaper if you purchase in larger amounts. But for the price, i believe there are better values even though I really like the compeition checker feature.

They do have a free trial, but I couldn't find any details.
