Well in answer to that i will say Yes and No.
There are some sites that offer these tools for Free and there are some that are NOT Free.
The truth is NOTHING IS EVER FREE. One way or the other you will definitely pay for a product later.
I have received countless like that.People will tell you they are giving you something for free, get your email address. Yes, you get what they want to offer you free but shortly they will be demanding something much more for you to pay back.
Normally i really don't like it. However,that is what is in vogue.
The tools i am using are:
1. Copywriting: http://www.tripleclicks.com/14424670/detail.php?item=509519
2. Email marketing
3. Traffic Exchange websites
4. IBOToolbox: http://www.ibotoolbox.com/teinvited2.aspx?jid=145519
5. Free Listing Website
6. Traffic Wave.net: http://www.trafficwave.net/members/folakemi/marketers.html
Now there are many more sites. But i realized that it is not how many that counts but the ones that are most effective.
The most powerful tool so far is the CONTENT MARKETING TECHNIQUE. It uses the power of synergy in its workings and yields terrific and powerful results.
It has never failed me in my marketing career since i discovered its power.
