The world of online business is a fast moving and competitive one. If you don’t stay ahead, it’s easy to fall behind or get lost in the torrent of online businesses that are being created especially after the last year.
To grow your business you will need access to tools that make the process of creating content easier. You may have to even learn how to work new platforms such as Tik Tok and use new features such as Instagram Reels.
While this isn’t always an easy thing to do, with the right tools, it can be made simple.
Content creation is also an integral part of building a brand that attracts a loyal audience. This guide is full of tools from the basic spell checkers and will truly help you become a better content creator, by not only creating the best content possible, but also delivering it in the most effective way.
Editing Photos and Graphic Design
Graphics, video, and audio are the soul of content. Videos and pictures need to be sharp, people don’t necessarily want to look at bricks of text across many pages.
Pictures, charts, and graphics are great ways to break up visually monotonous text and keep your readers engaged.
In order to create visually pleasing and engaging content, consider the graphic tool Canva.
Canva has received a lot of attention recently, and for good reason. With both a free version that you can just pick up and run with and a paid version that costs £8.33 a month or £99.99 for a yearly subscription, Canva delivers a powerful, professional graphic tool. It is really simple and streamlined for user interface and that makes it really easy to use along with it being so versatile. You don’t need to be a master graphic designer to make stunning graphics with this tool; It’s as simple as drag and drop. With Canva there is a catalogue of free designs, templates and stock photos and informative free tutorials on how to get the most out of the software.
Content Editing tools
Making sure that your message is getting across to your audience is key. Spelling and grammatical errors can turn off your readers, or discourage a new member from sticking around.
In order to avoid several spelling mistakes and to make sure that your content makes sense use Grammarly.
When it comes to editing tools, Grammarly rates highly. Not only will Grammarly check your spelling and grammar, it will check your content against millions of webpages ensuring that no accidental plagiarism is occurring and also give you suggestions to enhance your vocabulary. You can pay for a monthly subscription but there is also a free version that is still far more capable than other free tools.
Without productivity there can be zero success. With any business, you need to master streamlining all of the many aspects of your daily tasks. Being more productive leads to more content being pushed to your audience and the bottom line: more profit for your business.
Make organisation at the forefront of your business with Trello.
Trello is an amazing tool that has helped to streamline and optimize productivity for many content creators.
Trello has a drag and drop style board system which allows you to keep track of where a project is. You can easily see what needs to be completed, what has been completed, and who needs to work on what. Trello allows you to add due dates and comments to cards, allowing employees to stay in contact with each other and work on projects in real time. When one section is complete, drag the card to the next slot and it’s ready to go. There is a monthly subscription and also a free version which is ample for content creation.
There are hundreds of tools out there that can help you with your content creation, far more than were mentioned here. The ones mentioned here are the ones that I feel can take your content and productivity to the next level, the fastest.
