39 Blogging Tools to Help You Work Faster & Write Better


blogging tools

The Huge List of 39 Blogging Tools

Tools to brainstorm blogging ideas

1. Quora

The crowdsourced answer website can help lead you to the types of questions that real people are asking, questions that you can answer in-depth with a blogpost. Search for your keyword, and follow topics related to your blog’s focus.

2. BuzzSumo

Enter a topic or a URL into the BuzzSumo search box, and you’ll get a wealth of information on the content that performs best for social media sharing. BuzzSumo can be super useful for fleshing out an existing idea to find the perfect angle or in taking a broad look at the content that does well (and the blogs who do it best) in your niche.

3. Quick Sprout

Enter a URL into Quick Sprout, and you get an analysis of the site’s performance and content. The “Social Media” tab shows you which posts from the site have been home runs, and you can take inspiration from the highlights on the list.

4. Portent Title Maker

Enter a subject into the Portent tool, and you’ll get a sample blogpost title, complete with helpful and witty breakdowns of why the title might make for a good read. Refresh as many times as you’d like for new ideas.

5. Blog Topics Generator

HubSpot’s title maker works similarly to Portent’s. With the HubSpot tool, you can enter three keywords, and HubSpot will give you five titles—a week’s worth of content—to work with.

6. Twitter trending topics

The trending topics section on your Twitter homepage can be a super spot for grabbing ideas from the latest news. You can tailor your trending topics to go uber-local (the big cities near and around you) or even receive fully tailored tweets that take into account your location and those you follow. (Click the “Change” link at the top of the Trends section on your Twitter homepage.)

7. LinkedIn Pulse

Similar to Twitter’s trending topics, LinkedIn Pulse pulls content from the channels you follow on LinkedIn and the people in your LinkedIn network.

For additional trending topics on social media, you can check out Facebook’s Trending section and Google+’s What’s Hot page.

Tools to organize your ideas

8. Trello

We like to add all our blogpost ideas into Trello, turning each idea into a card that we can spec out with notes and move from list to list with a simple drag-and-drop.

9. Evernote

For super fast idea collecting, you can drop everything into Evernote—notes, snippets, photos, webpages, and more. The tagging system in Evernote is incredibly robust, so you can keep your ideas with a simple tag in a number of cool ways—by topic, by idea stage, and more.

10. Google Calendar

Calendar tools like Google Calendar can be repurposed as editorial calendars. If publishing one post per day, you can save your ideas as all-day events and move them around the calendar as needed. If you plan on scheduling multiple posts, add a calendar event to the specific publish time. Zoom in and out to see what you’ve got planned for a given day, week, or month.

11. Todoist

Place your ideas into a to-do list where you can schedule when blogposts might go live and break down the blogpost writing process into manageable steps. Todoist lets you collaborate on shared tasks with a team, too.

12. Wunderlist

Another useful to-do list tool, Wunderlist can help you keep your ideas sorted into tasks and subtasks. Even consider adding a listicle idea and creating subtasks for each of the list items you want to add.

13. Dropbox

When your ideas come with files, Dropbox is one of the best spots to store and share things like pdfs, Word Docs, design files, photos, and more.

Tools to create well-optimized content

14. Google Trends

Is your blogpost idea a popular one? You can run the topic through Google Trends to see search volume for the different keywords and phrases you’re considering using.

15. Keyword Planner

How do you frame your awesome idea into a far-reaching blogpost (that people can easily find)? Check for popular keywords. Google’s Keyword Planner lets you enter a series of keywords, and Google returns results on search volume and popularity as well as related keywords that might spark an idea for you.

16. Keywordtool.io

An alternative to Google’s Keyword Planner, Keyword Tool returns up to 750 suggestions for every keyword you enter.

(For yet another keyword tool alternative, take SERP Stat for a spin.)

17. Yoast WordPress SEO plugin

SEO plugins can help you fine tune your idea and blogpost into a specific keyword or phrase that will help with search results and help keep your blogpost focused. With Yoast’s plugin, you can type in the keyword that you’re after, and Yoast tells you how many different spots on the page the post appears and a nice green dot for when you’re ready to go.

Tools to help you write easier and faster

18. Google Docs

Many bloggers go straight to the writing editor in their blog software (WordPress, Ghost, etc.). You can also consider writing in Google Docs for collaborating with others and tapping into the extra power of Google Docs’ spelling and grammar tools.

19. Egg Timer

A super simple timer, tell Egg Timer how long you want to work—15 minutes for research, 40 minutes to write a draft, etc.—and Egg Timer will count down the time. When time’s up, a popup appears and the timer sounds.

20. Toggle

One of the most straightforward and fun time tracking tools you’ll find, Toggle lets you add a task, push the Start/Stop button, and check back in to see a full dashboard of stats on how you spend your time. It could be really useful for bloggers who want to focus on the time they spend writing, researching, and editing.

21. Hemingway

A really interesting free marketing tool, Hemingway analyzes your text for readability, highlighting sentences that are a bit too complex or dense. The readability for the list post you’re reading now: A seventh grade reading level.

22. Grammarly

Copy and paste your article into Grammarly’s online grammar checker to how it performs against checks for spelling, sentence structure, punctuation, style, and more. The initial score is free to see. The specifics of what to change (as well as suggestions from Grammarly) come with their paid plans.

23. WordPress Distraction Free Writing

This helpful tool is baked right into the WordPress editor. To access the Distraction-Free editor, click on the four-way arrow icon in the top right corner of any WordPress post you’re writing.

24. Desk

Download the Desk app (currently Mac only) to write straight from your desktop in a clear and uncluttered editor (with markdown support), then connect directly to WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, Facebook, and a host of other online publishing sites.

For additional desktop publishing tools, check out Zenwriter (Windows) and Ulysses App (for Mac).

Tools to create beautiful blog visuals

25. Death to the Stock Photo

Every month, receive an email with links to a new collection of free, high-res lifestyle photos. The site offers a premium subscription as well to be able to access and search its full archive.

26. PhotoPin

One of the 53+ places we scour to find free images, PhotoPin lets you search millions of Creative Commons photos from Flickr.

27. Skitch

Grab screenshots and annotate with notes, arrows, and icons. Skitch connects directly to your Evernote account so you can save all the screengrabs you take.

28. Meme Generator

Sometimes a simple meme says more than any other image could. Meme Generator lets you create a meme from scratch or use an existing meme character to add your own saying.

29. Canva

Probably our most-used image tool at Buffer, Canva makes image creation super easy (especially for non-designers) with their premade templates, custom image sizes for every social media channel, drag-and-drop interface, cool fonts, and more. Most every original image you see shared from our social accounts was made in Canva.

Other great options include PicMonkey and BeFunky.

30. Gimp

Photoshop is the king of image software. Gimp is like a free version of Photoshop. Most all major features are there, and amateur designers can get all sorts of things done with layers, masks, photo effects, and more.

31. Share as Image

Turn text from any webpage into a shareable image with the Share as Image browser extension and bookmarklet. The Pro plan ($8/month) even lets you add custom branding to the image and choose from a huge number of background photos and fonts.

Tools to distribute your content far and wide

We wrote about the topic of content distribution tools in more depth in a separate blog post as well. Click through that post for even more ideas for tools and resources to try when promoting your content.

32. Buffer

Once your blogpost is written and published, you can set up an easy sharing schedule with Buffer. Schedule your new article to go to your social channels multiple times with different headlines or images attached to each update.

33. EMV Headline Analyzer

Emotional Marketing Value checks for emotional words in your headline, and the analyzer tool returns a score of EMV words compared to total words in the headline.

34. Click to Tweet

Built by the team at CoSchedule (which also makes a helpful WordPress calendar and scheduler), this WordPress plugin makes it simple to highlight snippets of your blogpost for readers to easily share on Twitter. For sites not running WordPress, consider a tool like clicktotweet.

35. Filament

In a single WordPress plugin, Filament contains a group of useful features including Flare, a social share button plugin that makes it easy for others to share your blogpost on Twitter, Facebook, Buffer, and more—even spots like Hacker News and Reddit. Other Filament apps include: MailChimp subscribe form, Google Analytics tracking, all-in-one profiles, code management, and share highlighter.

36. Digg Digg

Digg Digg was built by our Buffer engineers a couple years back, and it’s been a staple on the Buffer blog ever since. What we’ve found most helpful with Digg Digg integration is the flexibility of where you can place the share buttons: floating to the left or right of the article (see our Open blog), pinned to the top or bottom of a blog post (see this Buffer Social blog), or manually wherever you wish inside your theme.

There’s a great list of social sharing plugins reviewed here, if you’d like more options.

37. Google Webmaster Tools

Signing up for webmaster tools can reveal a lot of SEO opportunities for your blogposts. For instance, see where you rank in search engine results for certain keywords, then build links to your most popular keyword posts to increase the rankings even more.

38. MailChimp

MailChimp is one of the biggest and best (and free) ways to send email to your list of contacts. You can set up automated campaigns that deliver each new post that you write, or you can create campaigns from scratch. MailChimp offers free accounts for those with fewer than 2,000 contacts in their list.

39. Headlines

Run A/B tests of your headlines with this WordPress plugin from KingSumo. If the cost is a bit steep ($99 lifetime charge), you can try out the other Sumo plugin, SumoMe, which offers some handy tools for growing an email list, analyzing your blogposts, and sharing content to social media.

The 17 Best Tools to Get Your Content Its Largest Audience


When you’re creating useful, actionable, epic content, everyone deserves to see it.

So how do you get your hard work and effort seen by the largest audience possible?

There are certain strategies you can put into place for spreading your content far and wide, and there are a good number of tools that can help these strategies run super smooth.

Here are the tools we use (and the strategies we love). Is there a tool you use that I failed to mention? Please do share it in the comments!

content-distribution

The 3 Types of Content Distribution Channels

Before we dive into the tools, let’s start with an overview of content distribution. Essentially, when you distribute your content, you do so in three basic channels.

  1. Owned
  2. Earned
  3. Paid

Owned media includes the channels that belong to you, where you control the content. This can be your blog, website, email newsletter, and social media profiles.

Earned media involves others sharing your content. This can take the form of social media shares, guest posts, media coverage, and product reviews.

Paid media is the exposure you pay for, be it pay-per-click ads, display ads, social ads, or otherwise.

When viewed in a Venn diagram, you can see that these channels provide a bit of overlap with one another as content distribution can touch on many different channels for the same piece of content.

owned earned paid media channels

With this idea framework in mind, let’s look at some tools that help accomplish content distribution in each of the three major distribution channels: owned, earned, and paid.

The 17 Best Tools for Widespread Content Distribution

Owned media

1. Buffer

We’ve found Buffer to be the simplest way to share your content to your social media channels on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn. You can schedule your posts to publish at ideal times (or let Buffer decide when is best), and you can reshare older content by re-buffering straight from the app dashboard.

Buffer schedule social media

2. Edgar

A new tool for reposting content from your archives, Edgar helps with evergreen promotion by linking to your social channels and sharing old content at a regular drip.

3. WiseStamp

A complete, beautiful email signature that can contain the typical contact information plus a host of other social media, RSS, and content distribution tidbits. You can show your latest tweet or hook up your RSS feed to show your latest blogpost.

email-signature-wisestamp

4. Goodbits

Create an email newsletter full of amazing links (including the content of yours you want to distribute). Goodbits lets you drag-and-drop content from a queue made up of any RSS feed you connect as well as any articles you add via the bookmarklet or browser extension. You can then customize, edit, and send to your contacts, including your MailChimp list and segments.

Web_Writing_Tips_-_Goodbits

5. MailChimp

Speaking of email newsletters, MailChimp is one of the biggest and best (and free) ways to send email to your list of contacts. You can set up automated campaigns that deliver each new post that you write, or you can create campaigns from scratch. MailChimp offers free accounts for those with fewer than 2,000 contacts in their list.

6. SumoMe

The suite of tools offered by the SumoMe WordPress plugin helps considerably with owned media and earned media. For owned media, SumoMe offers list building tools that include a subscription scroll box, a signup bar, list popup, and incentives/giveaways widget.

screenshot-3

In terms of earned media, SumoMe makes it easy for others to share images on your blogposts as well as the posts themselves.

Earned media

7. OnePress Social Locker

This WordPress plugin allows you to lock a portion of your content behind a social share button so that the content can only be accessed once a user shares to Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.

social-locker-wordpress

8. Help a Reporter (HARO)

HARO lets you connect with journalists looking for a source. If you’ve got an expertise or experience in a certain area, you can sign up at HARO and a reporter could get in touch!

9. PR Newswire

Got something newsworthy to share? Consider going the press route. PR Newswire can help with distribution of news, announcements, and events to a variety of sources. If you sign up,

10. List.ly

Build a list about anything—resources for your niche, articles you love, helpful tools, recommended books, etc. Grab links from around the web (including yours), and publish and share—and even embed—your list so that others can see.

listly

11. Buzzstream

Buzzstream provides a host of services that assist with link building. You can find influencers in your niche who may want to share your content, and you can organize outreach efforts all the way from list building to measuring responses.

12. Boomerang for Gmail

Outreach to fellow bloggers and influencers may require a bit of followup. With Boomerang, you can schedule your emails and automate follow-ups.

boomerang

13. Contently

Writers, authors, and journalists can create a portfolio at Contently, which can then be viewed and shared by just about anyone—readers, social media users, and even potential employers. The Contently platform helps connect content producers with those in need of content, and the service acts as a great way to distribute your own writing in one consistent place.

contently

14. Storify

Collect content from across the web—blogposts, tweets, and more—and place it into a Storify page. We use Storify for recaps of our Bufferchats on Twitter. The service integrates all types of media from videos to articles and everything in between.

Paid media

15. Outbrain

Have you ever come across a series of links at the end of an article? Would it be cool to see your content there? You can sign up for this kind of service at Outbrain, which feeds related/interesting content to pages all over the Internet.

Similar services include Disqus, Taboola, Skyword, and SimpleReach. Contently did a great breakdown of the pros and cons (and costs) of these paid channels, and Powered By Search has a list of great options, too.

16. Facebook sponsored posts

In a similar way to Facebook ads, you can pay to have your page’s posts seen by more users on the network. You can boost any post from your page and target the boost to reach a particular demographic of location, age, gender, or interest.

17. Promoted tweets

Like Facebook sponsored posts, you can get more views on your tweets by paying to promote a tweet to a larger audience. This occurs through the Twitter ads dashboard where you can compose an original tweet to promote or grab one from your stream that you’d like more people to see.

What a content distribution strategy looks like in practice

The next step is to synthesize all these tools and ideas into a single strategy. For many of us, the two free channels for content distribution—owned and earned—make for a huge number of possibilities on their own for getting our content seen and heard. Clement Vouillon put together a neat graphic that shows what this two-pronged approach could look like.

b2b-content-marketing-framework

In a post at KISSmetrics, Shannon Byrne shared the owned and earned content distribution strategies for Mention. Here’s what their list looks like:

marketing channels

Do some of these sites and channels look familiar to you and your strategy?

For our Buffer content, we distribute along many of the same channels mentioned in the KISSmetrics blogpost (and we’re inspired to try several new channels that were mentioned, too!).

Among the channels we often hit when we have new content or announcements:

  • Blogposts
  • Infographics
  • Email newsletter
  • RSS email
  • Twitter
  • Facebook page
  • LinkedIn
  • Google+ page
  • Google+ community
  • Content suggestions in the Buffer app
  • Syndication on Fast Company, The Next Web, Entrepreneur, and others
  • Press outreach
  • Medium
  • Inbound.org
  • Hacker News
  • Product Hunt
  • Storify

Which channels do you include in your content distribution strategy?

Conclusion

It’d feel great to get your content in front of as many people as possible, and there is certainly no shortage of tools, channels, and strategies to help make this possible. If you’re interested in paying for distribution, many sites and services can place your content in visible spots. And if you’d rather not pay for any extra distribution, there are plenty of owned and earned channels to try.

Which tools and sites do you use for your content distribution?

I’d love to hear how you do things! Feel free to share in the comments.

Top 20 Ways to Find Shareable Content for Your Audience


When you want to find content to share, it’s possible to go to your favorite social media outlets and scrounge up some material. As long as you’re able to find useful content, we agree with this approach. Now you may think that original content is important (this is also true: 78% of CMO’s think custom content will be the future of marketing), but what’s most important to note is that people still want content. Users want to learn something new everyday that is relevant to them. Your content doesn’t have to be completely original, but rather it should be a unique spin on a current or previous idea.
