Growth Hacking is vital for any business. Be it for newborn startups or successful firms, in order for them to survive the tough eye-catching game, they need to take advantage of the various tools available on the web.
In this blog, I will cover 5 free brilliant growth hacking tools that Marketers on a budget or in general can use.

Before we begin, for the marketer that don’t truly understand the term “Growth Hacking” let the one who coined the term himself, Sean Ellis sum it up in a self explanatory short.

“a growth hacker is a person whose true north is growth.”

Some see it as a revolutionary way of speeding up startup growth while others consider it just as a fancy new word for marketing.

In no particular order, these are 5 free great growth hacking tools you should definitely look into.

Start a Fire

This tool is really helpful for driving traffic back to your website via sharing engaging content. The tool works by adding a custom badge to each and every link you share. At the bottom of the page, you will find a small “Recommended content” box that allows you to drive traffic back to a specific blog post or any other page.

It works on the concept of quenching the thirst of consuming good content of the viewer and one of the best things about this tool is that you can connect it with your Buffer, Edgar or Hootsuite account so that when you schedule your posts, the links will automatically be updated with your recommended content badge included.

Ever wondered if you could get an email address of a person just with the knowledge of his name and the company he works in?
Sure you did.

Your thought has been turned into a reality named Toofr and It works wonders for generating Leads.

Grammarly

So you crafted an exceptional Facebook post filled with stellar content and stunning visuals that you know your followers will instantly love after posting. You leave peacefully after posting it only to find out 12 hours later that you committed a massive typo. And the engagement gained was cut by 20–30% with that mistake.

I personally have been through a situation like that and it hurts to see a tiny mistake turn your rather perfect piece into less than perfect.
Save yourself and your company that embarrassment with the help of Grammarly. It checks every piece of content that you create for mistakes and provides you with better phrase alternatives that resonate with the masses better.

Click to tweet

It’s great for helping others share your content. You can write a message that you want others to share(can also include a link). Once you’ve written the message you’ll just have to click on the generate new link button and you will have your special link and when clicked it will allow others to tweet your message.

A great feature about this tool is that you can track all activity and see how well it performs.

Buzzsumo

No Growth Hacking tools list is complete if it misses out on SumoMe. This tool is by far one of my favorites. It’s the best solution for finding trending content. You can view what’s trending in your niche or search specific topics. You can then narrow your search down even more by choosing how recent the content is, location based etc.

It’s the best tool you can use for content curation out there. Period.

That’s all folks. Quickly start taking advantage of these free tools and see the metrics climb. I hope you’ve discovered some new useful tools to add in YOUR list of Growth Hacking tools.
