Hemingway Editor is another tool concerned with content creation on our list. More specifically, the precision of it. Readers are looking for information or entertainment through your posts.

We have all been through it — using myriad separate tools to get tasks done. It gets messy and more difficult to coordinate. But what if you could do and track everything in one place?

6. Portent Tone of Voice Generator

Jennifer Blanchard once said, ”Don’t get it right, get it written.” Every marketer, conversely, would believe in getting it written right.

If we could have everyone in this world agree on something, it would be this: nobody, and we mean nobody, likes buffering. People lose interest and the content loses views. Pingdom helps you gauge the speed of your site. All it requires is your site and the specific place you want to test its speed in. After all, time is of the essence, Kid. (Read in Morgan Freeman’s voice).
