Oh, they might somehow still be in business but for many, tools enable us to do our jobs.
In fact, if it weren’t for a few of the following content marketing tools, I doubt very much if I would have been successful as a content marketer.
Think about it. Without filtering tools, the fire hose of information coming at us online at all times would be completely unwieldy and nearly unusable.
Without content creation tools, we might still be subject to content publishing “gatekeepers” and not able to publish our own blog posts.
Without social media management tools we might be tied to our computers all day in an effort to maintain a consistent presence that gets marketing results.
While I admit I haven’t tried most of the tools that are now available to content marketers, I’ve been reading, watching and asking questions about what works for quite a while. The following list reflects tools I tried and then came to rely on on a regular basis.
Listly, the tool I used to create this list, is a new tool I’m trying. It allows me to create visually pleasing lists and embed them right on my blog. It also allows people to vote items up or down the list, add commentary, and add their own items. So please, if you have any tools you’d like to add, please do!
I will try whatever is added to this list (as long as it’s free) and share what I think about it. And if you have experience with the tools I’m sharing here, please share what you think as well.
