Blogging Tools You Probably Aren’t Using to Scale Your Blog
This is an article on blogging tools by Ron Stefanski. I (Tad Chef) edited it and suggested some improvements.
When it comes to content marketing we witness a lot of progress. Innovation spawns new content tools, many of them employing AI (artificial intelligence).
Are you looking for ways to scale up your blog? You’ve come to the right place!
While most seasoned marketers know that things like email marketing software provides a lot of bang for your buck, there are a TON of new technologies others are working on to help folks scale their blogs.
Thanks to the advancement of technology, you can easily increase your efficiency of blog growth by using a few new and some already popular tools. This way you’re more efficient and produce tons of content in record time.
Read on to discover the tools used by bloggers to make sense of the astounding amounts of data to deliver better reader experiences.
Why Use Blogging Tools?
Content creation of such size and quality takes bloggers usually many hours because the research work is intense. Add to it complex text formatting or even content design. All this has to be accurately done in order to grab attention.
That’s where the modern blogging tools come in. Let’s look at some advantages of these tools:
- Elimination of Errors: AI tools seldom make mistakes. Their mistakes would be due to developers’ incorrect input or programming.
- Efficient and Reliable: They are efficient especially when dealing with sensitive data and numbers. Errors like these can be very costly to a company.
- Flexible and Versatile: Most tools are very versatile and flexible and are designed to tackle tasks under extreme conditions.
- Continuous Operation: Unlike humans, many of these platforms don’t need to take breaks and can operate 24 hours a day, every day. This round-the-clock operation becomes more productive, increasing revenue.
- Natural Language: Several tools are readily available that generate natural languages, such as Google’s text-to-speech or Amazon’s Polly.
- Social AI: Users’ news feeds on Facebook and Twitter can be customized by implementing AI tools into social media networks.
- Content Creation: Tools with AI can also create content such as news articles, poems, prosaic literature, etc. Media gurus such as Yahoo! Sports and the Washington Post make good use of such tools.
At this point, you’ve probably read articles written by algorithms without even knowing it.
When put to the test, many tools write brilliant content that connects to readers with ease.
Imagine punching in a few instructions and letting the work go ahead while you move on to more pressing tasks. Sounds amazing right?
Some of these tools that have AI abilities can do that, while others will help you plan your content or make it even better.
Without further ado, here are some tools that you could use for your blog to scale up efficiency and productivity.
I’ve categorized them as follows:
- Keyword Research
- Topic Research
- Content Creation
- Writing and Grammar
Keyword Research Tools
This is one of the SEO tools that is known to help accelerate the keyword analysis process.
It gives easy-to-understand formats, with semantic and trending keywords.
This keyword analysis tool promises to give ten times more keywords than the by now often data stingy Google Keyword Planner.
Topic Research Tools
As bloggers, we aim to deliver accurate content that is well researched and trustworthy.
This may mean sifting through tremendous amounts of data to filter out the best quality and compile it together in the most engaging manner.
Let’s have a look at some tools that can help us make research more efficient.
Exploding Topics by Brian Dean of Backlinko is a great platform that gives users insight into what topics and trends are growing within a specific timeframe. The time frame can be as short as 1 month and as long as 15 years.
Exploding Topics works by analyzing millions of searches, conversations and mentions across the internet.
It then compares the current results to those in the past and shows the growth trends over time. This is an excellent tool to not only find ideas for blog posts, but to find ideas for an entirely new blog.
Since you will be doing a lot of research and bookmarking numerous sites, your tab may slowly become disorganized.
This is where Evernote plays an important role by keeping all your notes and articles together. There’s a free version available if you would like to try it before purchasing it.
Content Creation Tools
Now that you have composed your titles and noted down some ideas and done necessary research, it is time to crack down on composing the blog. So let’s see some tools that can help with this.
Wordsmith can transform your data into productive narratives. They’re known for converting your data into written analytics. Companies like
make use of Wordsmith to generate millions of pieces of content annually. Their paid plan gives over a thousand articles per month, which is very impressive.
Do you think that a computer can’t function like human brains? You’re quite wrong! Articoolo is used by bloggers to write articles just like a human writer.
Articoolo recognizes the subject meaning and starts working on the paraphrasing in a logical sequence.
For example, if you are writing on “types of sports cars” then the tool first understands what a sports car is and starts writing the article.
Writing and Grammar Tools
Having accurate grammar is very important when composing articles. This allows your readers to trust you more and rely on the information they are processing.
Several tools are readily available for bloggers to meticulously check their writing, spelling, and grammar.
Having the AP stylebook helps bloggers to keep their work concise, informative, and clear.
It is always updating with trends and stylistic adjustments.
There are several purchasing options including a physical spiral-bound copy.
This is my personal favorite because it is one of the most powerful and impressive AI-powered tools available to any blogger.
Not only does Grammarly accurately correct grammar and spelling, but it also makes recommendations for change and sentence orientation.
It scans through millions of web pages for plagiarism prevention and it’s free, although there’s a paid version as well.
Today most of us have to deal with an abundance of content, and having to create engaging content can be demanding and time-consuming.
Luckily, tool vendors are revolutionizing the digital world and bloggers are using this to their advantage.
While it’s still important to have a full understanding of your blogs channel management strategy, many of the blogging tools listed here can help.
