1. Keyword Research Tool by Answer the Public

Answer the public is a keyword research tool that aims to provide professional writers and content marketers with actionable insight into what information or topic of interest searchers are looking for on the internet.

When you input a general word or seed word and phrase into the tool, it supplies you with tons of questions and searches queries directly pulled from Google with which you can use to develop your content and answer the specific questions people are searching for. See the image below for the questions and Google search queries that pop up when I enter the word Bitcoin into the tool.

2. Headline Analyzer Tool by CoSchedule

How does the Headline Analyzer work?

Simple! Head over to the tool via this link. Enter your headline into the tool and click Analyze Now.

Headline Analyzer by CoSchedule

It will analyze the headline you entered and give you a result similar to what I have below.

Headline Analyzer by CoSchedule

A score of 70 and above is considered cool and 50 to 69 is average. Anything below that is probably an unacceptable headline by the tool’s standard.

The tool examines your headline to determine it's overall structure, grammar, and readability and assign scores based on important headline factors such as emotionally charged words, common and uncommon words, and words with a tone of power used as seen above.

Several studies have proven that great headlines get more clicks, social shares, and ultimately more people reading your articles.

4. Free Stock Photo Websites

Find relevant, high-quality stock photos to use as featured images and within your posts on the following websites: Unsplash, Pexels, Picjumbo, Pixabay, PikWizard, Reshot, TockVault.

This list is by no means exhaustive but a perfect place to start in your search for high quality and free images to use in your posts.

Whereas custom images are better and most recommended, if you neither have the skills to create them yourself nor have the budget to use the services of a graphics designer, stock images are your best bet to finding high quality and relevant images to use in your posts.

However, I suggest you avoid using stock photos within your articles except they're highly relevant and clearly communicate the intended message(s).

 

5. Content (News) Aggregators

Sometimes you can find content ideas from what other people are already writing, tweeting, and sharing on the internet and one of the best ways to stay current on hot topics is to follow some good content and news aggregator websites.

Life is easier when you can find a variety of news and content related to your industry in a single place.

My favorite of the news aggregator websites is CryptoPanic – probably due to the ‘first love effect’ (it’s the first content aggregator website I found and use consistently).

Some good content aggregators for you to follow the latest news and find a sea of fresh content includes but not limited to:

  1. CryptoPanic
  2. CryptoControl
  3. CoinSpectator
  4. CryptoGoat
  5. Coinna
  6. Faws

There is a saying that a workman is only as good as his tools – and that’s true to a high degree.

I hope you could enhance your writing and content quality using these and many of the tools available out there.
