The following is list of tools that will help you save time and become more effective with your content marketing:

1. SEMrush: Identify how your competitors rank on Google (free and paid versions)

SEMrush is a great tool to help you assess competitors’ traffic on Google and the keywords for which they are ranking.

2. BuzzSumo: Find out what type of content gets shared the most (free trial, paid version)

You also want to create content that gets shared across social media channels. The best way to do this is to find out what type of content normally earns a lot of shares and write content around similar topics.

With BuzzSumo, enter a website address – yours or your competitors’ – to find the most-shared content across social media channels. You also can search for keywords to find the content related to those keywords that are shared the most.

It also is helpful to use BuzzSumo to examine content shares on specific channels to help you produce content that is likely to be popular on your targeted channels.

3. Easil: Prepare your promotional imagery (free and paid versions)
