What is a content maker app? The name might not be that clear cut but in a nutshell it’s an app where you let the software create your content for you. But how can an app do this? And why would anyone want an app to write the contents of their site.
Content Maker is a highly customizable WordPress plugin for easy creation and publishing of content. Content Maker allows you to create content for different blogs, adding a blog to a different language or post type without changing the theme. It also integrates with WordPress SEO by Yoast!.
Social media managers are very busy people, and they do love their mobile devices. Buffer’s team realized that and thus created a very neat mobile version of their tool. It has a very clean and understandable user interface—and has all the same features as Buffer’s web app. I was once planning social media even when vacationing—it only takes a couple of minutes and is very fun.
Google Docs wouldn’t be called this way if they weren’t accessible across platforms. Following Google’s minimalistic style, the mobile Google Docs apps are pretty simple and yet allow you to perform all the necessary operations. Now you can forget about your laptop—and just do the job on your mobile device. Immensely useful superpower for any digital professional.
Slack has been almost irreplaceable for many teams around the world. And if it didn’t offer the mobile content creation experience, it wouldn’t be even half as powerful as it is. Many complain that having a mobile app allows job issues to intrude their personal life—but in the end it’s always up to the person to balance that up and take care of the push-notifications settings.
If you are a busy digital professional working with a lot of data and content, you can’t afford being tied up to your desktop. Hopefully, with the applications mentioned above you will be able to boost up your work experience, become more productive, and also have some great fun creating creative and professional content on your mobile.
CoSchedule’s Headline Analyzer
Almost none of the articles on the ECM website go without a check from CoSchedule’s headline tool. Granted writing is qualitative and sometimes the score can be misleading. But couple it with your judgment, and you’ll be able to write captivating titles every single time.
Try different headline variations and try to touch a score of 70. Or hover around 60 when the keyword for your article doesn’t allow creativity (such as “best” software review articles).
Top It Up With: Blog Ideas Generator
Forget headlines, if you can’t come up with new content ideas themselves, then the HubSpot Blog Ideas Generator can come in handy. You just need to plug a few keywords related to the subjects you cover on your blog. And press the “Give Me Blog Ideas” button.
The tool returns a few tiles that can get your juices flowing. If you don’t like the ideas generated, you can “Start Over” and plug new keywords to get more titles. While finding the exact title of your next blog post might not happen with this topic generator, it can lead you to creative angles on popular subjects.
Grammar mistakes in your articles can turn off readers, hamper your brand, and lead prospects to abandon your website permanently. Grammarly, while not a replacement for a human editor, offers an extra layer of defense against typos, grammar, style, and even plagiarism.
We at ECM use Grammarly Premium, but you can check our review to find if Premium is worth it for you.
Grammarly’s weekly reports, writing tone and goals analysis, and a mobile app for grammar-checking writing on the go are cherry on the top.
The launch of Gutenberg editor in 2018 expanded the WordPress editor’s flexibility and customization options. But Elementor Pro’s slick drag and drop page building features, widgets, and designing capabilities can substantially improve your content’s experience.
It’s even possible to create “single post templates” on the top of your WordPress theme then reuse it across your site. For instance, I created a “top features” widget below that I can now reuse in my software review articles.
Top It Up With: Shortpixel Image Optimizer
While graphics are great additions for breaking your content into readable chunks, they are heavy in size and increase the loading time of your pages. It makes for a bad user experience and can impact your search rankings.
If you’re using WordPress as your content management system, the Shortpixel Image Optimizer plugin can help. It works its magic to compress your images while uploading without sacrificing their quality. Look at the disk space and bandwidth that this plugin has saved me.
Google Analytics (GA) is a powerful tool to measure traffic on your website, top referral sources, the engagement on your top pages, and the overall content performance.
I like to keep tabs on how the website visits per day and week are faring (though it isn’t as essential). And the average “time on page” that people are spending on the top articles for the ECM website and if it’s unusually low, then diagnosing why.
There’s so much data inside GA that you can get overwhelmed. This is why custom dashboards created by other professionals such as this Pinterest Dashboard by Kristie Hill come in handy.
If you’re a video content creator, then YouTube could be a source of evergreen exposure for you — it’s the third biggest search engine in the world after all. TubeBuddy is a top YouTube SEO tool for dissecting the phrases to go after so that you rank in YouTube search. For instance, the keyword below has an overall “Poor” score, so I won’t consider going after it.
Content creators for social media can’t always stay online to post updates and interact with their audience.
But guess who can?
That’s right, a social media scheduling and analytics tool such as Tailwind. It’s great at ensuring your Pinterest account keeps sending fresh content.
Writing blog posts can be a chore sometimes. You know, that ever-growing laundry list of topics that you’ve already written about but are now linking to more than one place on the web?
