As content writers, we need a lot of tools to complete our daily tasks as soon as possible and reduce our workload.
|5 Important Told for Content Writers|
I have been in the blogging field for more than 5 years and still doing it, I had almost used hundreds of tools that are necessary for a content writer.
And in this particular blog post, I will share 5 important tools as per my experience and usage which are important for every content writer.
We’re gonna talk about tools for writing, designing, taking notes, keyword research, and image tools.
So without further talks let’s get started with the writing tool,
You might be familiar with this tool as this is one of the most used one and most promoted ones.
Grammarly is an AI tool that helps you in fixing grammatical, punctuation, and spelling mistakes in your content.
No doubt Grammarly is one of the best writing tools that I personally use to write all of my content. In fact, the one you are reading is also written with the help of Grammarly.
It’s necessary to provide easy-to-understand content to your blog readers, and this tool is really helpful to do so.
Well, it has a free account or chrome extension that allows you to fix the spelling, grammatical and punctuation mistakes that are more than enough.
But, if you want to use their premium services for more additional benefits then you can use them.
Another important writing tool every content writer need is a word counter tool.
You might be thinking that why it is an important tool?
We create and publish content on the internet and to rank higher on the search engine results pages we need to write in-depth and lengthy content.
Also if you work as a freelance content writer then your clients always tell you to write a minimum amount of words and we don’t need to invest our money in buying such tools as we just need to count the number of words.
So you can use RaptorKit’s word counter online tool to count the number of words, characters with & without spaces, and paragraphs in your article for free.
Figma or Canva
Talking about my best graphic design go-to tool is Figma.
Each and every social media kit of mine is designed with Figma only, whether it is an infographic, promotional banners, my YouTube channel thumbnails, or any other graphic image.
I use Figma for all of my graphic design work, but the only demerit of Figma is that you can’t use it properly on mobile, and the best alternative for this is Canva.
So, you can use both Figma and Canva for your graphic works.

Sometimes we need to add many high-quality images & other infographics to our content to support it and make it easier to understand.
But adding those high-quality images to your website may slow down your website that can create a severe impact on SEO & rankings of your website.
And Google itself recommends using a next-generation image format that is WebP.
So you can convert your JPG, PNG, or any other format image into WebP format.
The benefit of using the WebP format is that it reduces the size of the Original image by 80%, with a 0% loss in the quality of the image.
You can use a free tool like RaptorKit image converter to convert any image into WebP or any other format like JPG, PNG, GIF, or BMP in a few clicks.
