Content is still king for online businesses. Want to rank on Google? You need content. Want social media followers? More content. I’ve personally published thousands of articles across dozens of blogs, recorded hundreds of videos, and posted who even knows how many photos. Creating that much content takes a lot of time, but the right tools can speed up the process. Below, I share the best content creation tools I’ve found in over 10 years of blogging and being an online content creator—organized by use case.
What it’s useful for
Content planning and management dashboards. You can use it to create to-do lists and content calendars, collaborate with your team on projects, and much more. I use company data Notion because it has the highest amount of flexibility and freedom of all the task management software, but it also has a steep learning curve. What it’s useful for: Scheduling social media posts, using AI to generate post ideas, seeing analytics data, and managing all your social media accounts under one dashboard. What it’s useful for: Recording and editing audio and video files. However, it’s much more powerful than a simple audio or video editor.
Content Creation cutting-edge
AI software that allows you to do things like “greenscreen” any background, remove all the “ums” and “uhs” from your audio, and easily rearrange clips. It even has an AI tool CU Lists that can clone your voice. Case Study: Podcasters Use SquadCast and Descript to Simplify Their Podcast Production. I’m not willing to conclusively say that permanent redirects pass value even after one year, but what Gary said seems to mostly hold true. Switzerland-based search engine that has its own index for German-language queries. For all other languages, results are pulled from Bing. But this isn’t an issue, given that all search queries are stripped of personal identifiers. A wider breadth of trustworthy content is a signal of expertise and builds topical relevance and association to your niche.
