How often do you monitor the worldwide web for new and relevant content? Are you looking for free content marketing tools to become more efficient in creating and promoting niche relevant topics?
Here’s what Janine Popick from VerticalResponse had to say recently on Inc. …
[...] we’ve curated three of our favorite content marketing tools that allow us to be timely, efficient, and effective with our content.
1. Google Docs
After trying nearly every document sharing option out there, Google Docs has proven itself to be our favorite go-to for this purpose. We use it for our weekly meeting, as well as for creating posts (…), that one or more people need access and editing ability with. It’s great that many people can be in the document at one time and there are no issues with versioning, etc. Cost: Free
[...] Ebyline is a Los Angeles-based company that helps publishers, or businesses find, hire, and manage freelancers in less time. (…) they’ve got over 1,900 of their own freelancers for hire, so if you’re short on bandwidth, knowledge, or time and need someone to do it for you, Ebyline can “pitch” hit in a snap. The best part we’ve found is that compared to some of the content competitors, they are completely affordable. They can create a blog post, a guide, or any other content you need. You simply create a brief outline of the project, include the deadline and the fee you will pay. You’ll receive responses from interested writers and you can accept or decline them as needed. We are loving this service. Cost: Free and paid options
[...] Rumors are swirling that Alerts might be going the way of Google Reader. Now, before you cry tears of sorrow, we’ve found a fast and capable replacement touted to be even better than Google Alerts–Talkwalker Alerts. Like Google Alerts, Talkwalker Alerts allow you to monitor the web for interesting new content about your name, brand, competitors, events, or any topic. … Cost: Free
Prior to sharing with you a few more free resources we use at Strength In Business, let’s have a look at this short 1 minute video from Google. In case you haven’t used Google Docs so far you might ask yourself where to find it. Google Docs has been integrated into Google Drive.
Here are a few more content marketing tools to add to the list above:
- YouTube: There is certainly a lot of valuable content you can find on the worlds second largest search engine… and it’s free.
- Podomatic: If you’re looking for the latest news than podcasts are a great medium delivering just that. And again, this resource is also free.
