Powerful Set Of Tools For Bloggers And Internet Marketers
As more and more entrepreneurs embrace social media and blogging as their mainstream marketing medium, the space is becoming more and more competitive day by day.
On the other hand, it also takes focus and consistency of efforts to establish your personal brand in the field of blogging. Therefore, bloggers must take into consideration the amount of time and resources needed to be on top of the game.
Social media marketing using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, articles directories is a common practice. However, there are some awesome tools that may or may not have drawn your attention as a blogger or as an internet marketer so far.
My goal today, is to share with you, some of the most interesting online tools to protect your work and boost your return on investment of your time and efforts.
Here are four powerful online tools for bloggers that I have found very useful and I believe you will enjoy using them as well:
You may not know that plagiarism is considered to be a dishonest appropriation of someone else’s thoughts and/or ideas. It is not a good thing.
In the world of blogging, it isn’t unusual to find that your content is published on other websites without your permission. It is may be frustrating to you as it is to me.
As guest blogging is becoming prominent, it may happen that you receive a guest post and you like the content already. But, before you go ahead and publish it, you want to make sure that the content is original.
It is also possible that you have an idea. You’ve written a post about it and you want to ensure that your content is not falling in the cracks for plagiarism to avoid any future heartaches.
In either case, Plagiarism Checker can help you identify possible issue with the content in question. It will ensure the content you share with your audience is not only valuable but also unique.
Originally known as TweetLater, this Twitter account management tool is one of my favorites. It is a feature rich social media management service – with a few free and many rich premium features.
You can manage your Twitter activities such as following, unfollowing, scheduling future posts, friend finding and doing many more things that otherwise can take hours of your time everyday. SocialOomph provides an excellent way of sorting followers by profiles with image, with no images, inactive users, with bio, with no bio etc. Once you get used to this tool, you will love it.
IFTTT stands for If This Then That, a tool that enables you to syndicate your blog content across a multitude of social media channels.
Not just the content syndication, IFTTT also allows you to If – This <Event> Then <Action> scenarios for many things that you want to do online on various channels.
- If I post a new status message on Facebook, post it to my Google+
- When I upload a photo on Facebook, save it on my Google Drive
- Whenever I publish a new blog post, tweet it
- Tweet a message every day at such and such time.
…and so on.
There are many syndication services out there. But I like IFTTT because of its granularity in the approach and the flexibility of choosing the conditions and associated actions.
Quora is a community driven questions and answers repository website. Especially since the death of LinkedIn Answers, Quora has become the mainstream Q&A hub on the web.
There are many benefits of Quora and possibilities are unlimited. Joining is free and once you join, you can start building up your presence. Some of the activities you can do as you begin using this website are:
- Ask new questions and invite others to answer.

Among many benefits of using Quora as a blogger, here are some of the highlights you can look forward to:
- Networking with influential community members
- Drive regular traffic to your website
- Establish and strengthen your personal brand as an expert
- Get new ideas, new topic for your blog posts
While these are not the only online tools that are needed, but these are some of my top pics for bloggers today. I hope you will have a great time leveraging the power of these tools and take your online presence to the next level.
