If you don’t already own photo editing software there are a lot of great choices available online. One of our favorites is PicMonkey which offers free and premium features.
 
Graphic Design
If you aren’t a graphic design expert or can afford to hire one you still have options. Websites like Canva are great because they are easy to use and have several choices to choose from.  Free and premium options are available.  They also offer a 30 day trial of their Canva for Work where you can make items like online business cards, letterhead and etc.
 
Newsletter
For those looking to start a newsletter signup for email programs like MailChimp which offers different options depending on your business levels and needs.
 
Social Media Marketing

Promote your blog on your chosen social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and etc.). It is great for people not only to see your work but you can make new connections as well.

 
Collaborate with fellow bloggers
If you are still building up your audience why not reach out to fellow bloggers for a potential collaboration.  You can guest blog, do a giveaway or ask for advice.
 
Look out for free tips or webinars
Need a little extra advice, but hiring an expert is not in your budget?  You can always sign up for tips or webinars from your favorite blogger.  You can also find helpful articles by searching online.
These tips are sure to help run your blog smoothly without breaking the bank.
