Stop trying to handle every role yourself, such as manually posting tweets in real time or spending hours trying to take professional-looking photographs, with these useful – and free – online tools.

1. Upwork

This is a great tool for when you simply don’t have the time to complete a task on your to-do list. Open the app or visit the site and hire mobile developers, website designers and customer service agents to take on mini jobs as and when you need their help. You can even order collection and delivery services.

2. SurveyMonkey

Build and analyse the results of a range of surveys. With this resource it’s easy to create anything from an opinion poll designed to garner customers’ opinions to an in-depth market research survey. These surveys can be embedded in emails, Twitter feeds, Facebook pages, websites and more.

3. WhatsApp

Available on iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia, WhatsApp allows you to send text messages, photos and videos for free to groups of up to 50 people. If you’re organising events and parties the social messaging service acts as a useful communication tool between members of a team – enabling multiple users to join the conversation.

4. Hootsuite

This social media management tool helps manage your networks by monitoring, posting and delegating tasks from a single dashboard. You can schedule posts and track user engagement, plus you get two free reports with the free version of Hootsuite.

5. Google Drive

This is very beneficial for teams who need to work collaboratively on documents, or remotely on their personal devices.  Changes made to documents saved here are automatically saved, with files syncing as you type. You can then share the files with colleagues and even with people who don’t use Google Drive.

6. Evernote

Never forget an important meeting again thanks to this app, which is designed as an online notebook, to-do list manager and reminder service. You can add text, images, audio, scanned documents and files, and then synchronise everything across all of your devices.

7. Bit.ly

With only 140 characters available to you in each tweet, this link shortening service cuts down the length of the URL you want to share. You can track individual link analytics to understand what received the most clicks and therefore gain a valuable insight into the kind of content your audience is interested in.

8. Canva

Canva allows you to create and design beautiful graphics giving you selection of images and fonts to choose from.

9. Stocksy

Stocksy offers great images (that don’t look like ‘stock’ images) priced between $10-100. The site sets high quality and curatorial standards to ensure the images are varied.

10. Grammarly

Designed to help you avoid the embarrassment of spelling and grammatical errors popping up in your content and client communications. You can use the online text editor or free browser extension for Safari and Chrome.
