As we wrap up another year of business we must look at what expenses we have and where we can cut costs. Here is Part 2 of the 30 Free Business Tools for Real Estate! Cut some costs by using these free tools in your real estate business in 2014!

16. Google Analytics –  a powerful business tool! It tells you the interest level in your listings. Google Analytics can track how many visitors are being sent to you from Trulia, Zillow and Realtor.com. It can give you a lot of good information about the visitors on your website and Facebook page.  It reports what pages your visitors were interested in, how long they stayed, and where they come from. 

17. Gmail – click on this link to read about the top 10 reasons to use Gmail from Tech Tip Tuesday.

18. Asana –“enables teamwork without email.” Asana is a free project management system allowing: teams, tasks and conversations to be all in one place!

19. YouTube – most agents use YouTube to upload videos of their listings, which is great for marketing. How about personal marketing? Jessica Edwards, Coldwell Banker Realtor, in Wilmington, NC, has used YouTube as part of her social media to brand herself as the car video blogger! She has gotten a lot of business from doing video blogs!
