Today I am going to share with you 3 tools that I use as building blocks for online content publishing.
- Shareist.com – for research, content creation, and organization.
- Themes. I’ll share some ideas on how to design your blog with the future in mind.
- And I’ll return to Shareist to show you how to publish, and schedule posts for the future.
Building Block A: Research and Writing
Quality content starts with quality research. When researching ideas, I use the Shareist Bookmarklet which helps me save and organize all of my idea “snippets” to use later for articles, blog posts, and newsletters.
Using the bookmarklet, I create an inbox of categorized ideas from which I can easily cherry-pick later in the content creation process.
I’ve created a quick video below to show you what it is like to use the tool in action.
Building Block B: Creating a Theme and Look for your Blog
Not only is the theme of your blog important from a visual standpoint, but the choice also has an effect on your SEO rankings.
I’ve included a list of some options – all great theme providers.
Building Block C: Publishing and Scheduling
Since not all inspiration comes at the exact time you need it, it is important to be able to schedule future posts and have tools designed to help you in this process.
I use Shareist.com for this whole process, and I’ve included a quick video below to show you how it is all done!
