Essential Tools To Help With Your Content Writing
As you embark on your online business journey to success, I am pretty sure that you would love to have any tips and tricks that others before you have used – and used successfully!
Here are a few essential tools for content writing that I think you should find value in – of course, as long as you use them efficiently and effectively!
The Idea Machine
This is a great beginning for writers to test their writing skills or rather, in my opinion, to sharpen it!
As a member of Quora myself, I joined with the main thought of just answering people’s questions and hoping to be of help to their needs. As it turns out, I find that I am also using Quora as a source for ideas and content for my website.
How, you might ask?
Well, I pay attention to the questions that are being asked and if I cannot answer the question, then I do my research and find the answer to the question which in turn becomes a topic for my website!
Et voila – as the French might say!
You should go check out Quora.com – I am not an affiliate, just a free member trying to be of value to the community at large!
This is a great way to get the ‘scoop’ on what’s trending in the way of content and conversation. It is a paid tool. It is pricey, but for what is being offered, it should be considered.
If you are just starting out on your online journey, it might be best to wait a bit before you invest in this tool. There are other inexpensive ways to get ideas for content writing. But it is still worth taking a look to see what is available. To this end, there is a 14-day trial to tease you into making a decision.
Take a visit to another one of Uncle Google’s tools for research. A totally useful free tool. You can input keywords or phrases and see what the trend is saying – using various time periods. You will be amazed at the output!
There is so much information to be harnessed from using this resource. You can even do comparisons to get useful information. I think this is a great tool though maybe a bit under-used by aspiring website owners – but you will change that!
This is a paid resource but a very handy-dandy one to have! There is a trial feature and you can test it here.
I did a review on this keyword tool because of the value I saw in it.
You can input keywords that you are thinking of using in your content and see if your choice is a good one based on:
- Avg – the average number of searches per month
- Traffic – visits to the site based on ranking
- QSR – quoted search results based on the websites being ranked
- KQI – keyword quality indicator
- Seo – search engine optimization based on traffic and competition score
- Related keywords – ideas on other possibilities
I think (without bias) that this will definitely help in your content creation and analysis.
Now you know that NO content is worth reading unless it can be understood!
To this end, I recommend Grammarly as a tool for you. In all transparency, I also did a review of this tool. I also use it every day in order to ensure that my content can be understood by anyone who reads it.
Being able to write content is great, however, being able to make your content understood is much better. Grammarly offers a basic free package as well as a paid one. Test-drive the basic package before you make a paid commitment.
These few essential tools for content writing should help to give you some direction once you have made the commitment to creating your online presence.
Remember, creating your online presence will take time and it is not an ‘overnight sensation’, so don’t be disappointed when you are not ‘hauling truck-loads of money to the bank’ after a few posts.
Like all good outcomes – we need:
- the gift of time
- action steps
- and great resources.
Much success on your journey to success.
