As a blogger, if you want to grow, it's important that you invest in blogging tools. When I first started my blog, I didn't want to spend a penny on blogging tools.
I remember wanting to purchase a product that I thought would help me grow my blog/business and being hesitant because of the price.
I also remember my husband talking to me about how it takes money to make money and the importance of making smart investments in my business. Because of his advice, I decided to make the purchase.
Making that purchase was one of the smartest things I've ever done for my blog/business to date.
I understand the hesitation that comes along with investing in your blog. However, one of the biggest lessons I've learned is the importance of making smart investments.
Investing in your blog doesn't mean buying every product that catches your attention. It does mean that sometimes you have to spend money on things that will either increase your knowledge, save you time, or earn you money.
In this post, I'm sharing five blogging best tools for bloggers.
Best Blogging Tools for Bloggers
Tailwind is a Pinterest scheduling tool. I decided to purchase a 12-month subscription to Tailwind. Initially, I signed up for the free trial but loved it so much that I upgraded my account within a few days.
Scheduling my pins through Tailwind allows me to be active on Pinterest, without having to worry about pinning manually. My Pinterest account currently receives over 1 million monthly viewers and I owe this to Tailwind.
MiloTree is a smart pop-up that helps you grow your email list, Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram account. I like MiloTree because it allows me to grow my social media followers with little effort on my part. I use MiloTree for Pinterest growth, and it has helped me grow my Pinterest account to over 20,000 followers. Try a free 30-day trial.
ConvertKit is an email marketing service. MailChimp was my original email marketing provider; however, I found that they lacked a lot of the features I wanted for building my email list.
When I first discovered Converkit, I thought they were a bit on the pricey side and felt uneasy about making the switch. However, the moment I imported my email list and began utilizing everything they had to offer, I knew I had made the right decision. I have now more than doubled my daily subscribers with ConvertKit.
4. Social Pug
Social Pug is a free WordPress plugin that adds social share buttons to your blog. I'm a big fan of this plugin. You can upgrade to a premium account for additional features, but I'm doing just fine with the free version.
PicMonkey is an online photo editing tool. Because images are such an essential aspect of blogging and social media, it's important to be able to create your own graphics. Canva is also a great tool for creating graphics for your blog.
