5 Freebies for Startups

Just because you’ve finally started the company you’ve been dreaming about, doesn’t mean you have the funds necessary to help your startup grow. Even so, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help you build a following on social media, get press attention, build a great mobile app, or even find captivating stock photos!


1. Freebbble

Thousands of high-quality design freebies.

Using freebbble, you’ll find fonts, icons, mobile templates, and wallpapers — all for free. Just make sure you pay attention to the licenses attached to each design so you know when and how to use it. On the site, it says that if the license on a design is unknown, it’s usually because the user forgot to mention it. All you have to do is ask them nicely about their design, and they’ll probably let you use it!


2. StockSnap

Costless and copyright-free images.

Looking for images to use in your campaigns and on your site that aren’t cheesy and are free of legal restriction? StockSnap holds thousands of beautiful photos that could be right for you! Make sure to also check out StockUp, TookAPic, Pexels, or Unsplash to find the perfect image.


3. Batch

Free engagement and communications tools for mobile developers.

Not only will Batch help your startup be smarter mobile developers, but it will also help you become better designers and marketers. It will help you optimize push notifications, target users more intelligently, and analyze data meaningfully.


4. Submit.co

Get press coverage for your startup.

Using Submit.co, arrange various media outlets by number of Twitter followers and Alexa rank to find the perfect source relating to your startup so they can help tell your story! Though you’ll still have to find specific journalists and contacts in most cases, this platform will help you figure out which publication you should reach out to.


5. Pablo by Buffer

Creative and engaging images for social media, quick.

Even if you’re not using Buffer to manage your startup’s social media, Pablo will help you create the perfect graphic to share on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and even Pinterest. Just find an image (or upload your own), and write up the information you want to share to your followers. You can also change the font, and even upload your startup’s logo!
