5 Must-Have Online Tools for Content Creators


We are in the Golden Age for Content Creators.  Filmmakers, Artist, Writers, and other Creative Professionals are leveraging online tools to become household media brands who are impacting culture and revenue.   Here are 5 Must-have Online tools for Content Creators.

1. Website + Reliable Hosting

My number one recommended tool for building a website is WordPress.com. It’s free and offers unlimited ways to customize the web platform of your dreams. You can visit websites like Themeforest.com and choose from 1,000’s of premium themes or just use one of many free themes that come with WordPress.

To power your new web platform, it’s important to get reliable web hosting. My number one recommendation for building a personal brand website is Siteground.com.

2. Custom Logo +  Web Graphics

With the barrage of information we receive on a daily basis, it’s clear that we are quickly a becoming a more visual society. We are watching more videos and skimming more than we read. In today’s noisy marketplace, the best way to capture attention is to have compelling Logo and web graphics. I would recommend Fiverr.com for quick logo creation on a budget.

3. Visitor + Conversion Tracking 

Having a beautiful website and logo is great. What’s even better than that, is knowing whether your potential customers agree. The best way to do this to track how they use your website. For this, I recommend setting up Google Analytics on your website.

Google Analytics -

It’s free, and it will give you tons of great information like Your most popular pages, where your traffic is coming from, and which pages customers are spent the least amount of time on.

4. Payment Processing + Invoicing

This may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many blogs and small business websites make it very difficult for their customers to pay them. Stripe and PayPal offer seamless ways for customers to support your business.

Even if you don’t have a product ready to promote, don’t be afraid to add a “Buy me a cup of coffee” button while you’re Developing your game-changing product or service

5. One Social Media Profile

Although social media usage has gotten out of hand recently, we can’t escape the fact that billions of people use it daily. In order to protect your efficient and keep your business in front of people who need it, I recommend starting with just one social media profile.

This platform should preferably be the one where your audience is most active. If you love being on camera or shooting videos on the fly, YouTube or IGTV will likely be your best bet.

Once you’ve mastered your social media platform, you can venture out to others to establish new relationships. When you are ready to ramp up your social media publishing, I highly recommend the tool Blog2Social.
