Let’s dive in.1. Project management and collaboration — Trello

Communicating and setting expectations for deliverables, achievable milestones, and meeting deadlines for yourself, your team, or your stakeholders is essential to your success, on or offline.

In the past,project management efforts happened mostly through email. Email platforms are very limited, however, and simply were not built to accomplish the dynamic and fast-paced tasks digital marketing activities demand.

Trello is one of many free digital marketing tools for easy project management. Displaying each project like a “board” containing “cards” with checklists, the user interface is easy to navigate and understand.

Like most collaboration software platforms, there are upgradeable, paid features, but their free basic service includes the important and most essential core features;

 Easy organization of project tasks, milestones and deadlines.

 One third party app integration per “card”

  Customizable task categorization or status tags and labels

 Drag and drop functionality

 Checklists with progress charts

 Data filtering

 Deadline reminders

 Easy file/attachment uploads

 Email notifications

 Activity log

 SSL data encryption (security)

 For most startups, Trello is a simple and powerful way to organize and plan digital marketing projects.
