Online tools for freelancers

toolboxLifehacker highlights a great list of 100 free or low-cost tools especially made for freelancers. The list includes project management tools, financial services, online storage/data transfer space and professional social networking sites.

Missing from this list are a good RSS reader (I recommend Bloglines or Google Reader), Media Convert, a site that easily converts all sorts of file formats (text, images, audio, video), and Emurse, a powerful resume-building site.

I’ve also been on the lookout for some free or inexpensive project management software. If anyone has any recommendations, please share! You can drop a suggestion in the comments or message me at

One thought on “Online tools for freelancers”

  1. For project management, I recommend Basecamp ( Developed by the folks at 7signals, it’s a real good project management suite of software programmed with Ruby on Rails. There’s a free version that allows you to use one project. I’m a little disappointed that the prices per month seem somewhat steep for what you get value-wise.
