Ian Lurie Sep 27 2016

I know, I know. I piled on the tips and tools. It’s OK!!!! Here are the links, related content and slides from my Marketing Worldbuilding talk:

30 Tips For Better Content
If you want a bunch of ideas for creating better places, check out this presentation and links

Google Trends
Compare trends around keywords. Figure out your audience’s language

Answer The Public
Question research. Ignore the creepy guy on the home page. This is one of the best question-mining tools you’ll find

Quora
A whole site filled with questions and answers. Find the most-asked, most-viewed questions, answer them on your site and you’ll sell more stuff

Grammarly
I can’t survive without this tool. It finds and corrects some of the real cringe-worthy errors in my writing

Hemingway
Hemingway helps you write more concise, readable copy. It’s not quite as good as a human being, but it’s close

Imageoptim
A dang handy image compression tool for the Mac

Caesium
Like Imageoptim, but for Windows. So it’s not as cool. Like Star Wars isn’t as cool as Star Trek

Actual, interesting stock photos that won’t make you weep with despair
