How to Boost Your Blog Content Engagement with 12 Online Tools

Content Creation Tools

This is where the magic starts.

You will always have readers as long as you write great content.

However, you need the right tools that will help you think of relevant topics and write posts that will attract and engage more readers.

  1. BuzzSumo

This is the perfect tool for discovering trending topics.

The interests of your target audience determine your success as a blogger.

When you serve information they have been looking for, you’ll boost your chances for success.

You can enter any topic or domain into the designated area, and you’ll get information on what content performs best.

When you see which posts got the greatest number of shares on different social media websites, you’ll realize what the focus of your next post should be.

  1. Tweak Your Biz Title Generator

If the title doesn’t attract attention, it won’t matter how awesome the post is.

This is an automated tool that enables you to generate awesome titles for blog posts and articles.

All you need to do is enter a noun or verb, and the generator will launch several titles in few categories: lists, best, how to, questions, motivation, and much more.


  1. Write My Essay

When you have to write a scheduled post, but you don’t have any idea where to start, this is the website you should turn to.

The professional writers of this service will help you write engaging content on any topic you could think of.

  1. Infogra.me

If you explore the most successful blogs in different niches, you’ll realize that infographics are everywhere!

Online users love absorbing information through this type of content; infographics are fun, brief, and easy to follow.

Of course, you’ll need a proper tool to create an awesome infographic. Infogra.me is one of the best ones you can use.

It enables you to discover, promote, and share visual content. The Share feature is very important, since it can get yourinfographics viral!


Content Management Tools

The way you publish and manage your content is just as important as your talent and style.

These are the tools that will help you at this stage:

  1. CoSchedule

You can use this tool to plan your blog publishing schedule and marketing strategy.

Your readers will be expecting posts at a certain time, so you won’t make them happy if you publish a post whenever you feel inspiration for writing.

Successful blogging takes a lot of planning.

You can connect CoSchedule with Evernote, so you’ll be able to plan, create, publish, and share your content in the simplest manner.


  1. Hootsuite

Blogging is closely intertwined with social media activity.

You’ll need to be present on several social media websites in order to promote your content and attract a greater audience.

Such responsibility can easily consume more time than you’re willing to invest.

Thanks to Hootsuite, you can manage all social networks from one place. You can schedule messages, engage your friends and followers, and measure the results.

  1. Socedo

This is the most useful automated social media lead generation tool that’s currently available.

Socedo will discover the social prospects according to the criteria you provide.

When a much larger audience is talking about your blog, a greater number of new readers will start coming your way on a daily basis.


Content Promotion Tools

When content promotion is in question, the first tools that come to your mind are Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and other social media websites.

However, your marketing efforts should not be limited to these platforms.

There are tools that will help you drive traffic to your blog more effectively.

  1. Sniply

Sniply will attach a customized call to action to every link you share.

When you share content from other blogs, you will still bring people back to your own content.

How cool is that?

The tool will create a special link with the designated page and your call to action embedded inside.

You can share this link via email, social media websites, forums, etc.


  1. Scoop.it

Scoop.it will first help you discover awesome content on the web.

When you discover a topic you think you can cover, the tool will offer great online publications that can support your fresh perspective.

Then, you can publish your new content with one click to your blog and social media profiles.


  1. StumbleUpon

When you have great content, StumbleUpon can be one of the most effective tools for its promotion.

When users like or stumble upon a particular page, it is put into the lineup; so many other users will see it when they are randomly searching for resources on a particular topic.


  1. Listly

With Listly, you can engage a great audience and bring more readers to your blog.

Lists are the essence of this platform.

You only need to connect your account with social media profiles, and then create a list related to the niche of your blog.

Who knows, maybe you’ll like Listly more than your usual blogging platform.


Wrapping it up

Remember: blog marketing is just as important as content creation.

If you don’t try to engage a larger audience, you won’t reach your entire potential as a blogger.

Start exploring the 12 tools listed above, and you’ll immediately notice the difference.

    Hey Julie,

    Nice list of tools to use to bring engagement back to your blog. I use three of these tools which are Buzzsumo, Coschedule, and sometimes Canva. Buzzsumo does a great job in helping you what topics and headlines to use for your next blog post and I only use the headline analyzer from Coschedule which gives you a lot of great details.

    I’m interested to find out more about infogra.me and sniply. I’ve used info graphs on a couple of my post and my readers like them. It would be cool to create my own. Sniply sounds like it will push my engagement up another level which we all can use a little boost sometimes 😉

    Thanks for the share Julie! Have a great weekend!

    In my point of view, user engagement should be a major focal point for your blog. Your primary goal to keep your blog breathing is to encourage reader engagement more effective. Why? It is because the key to a successful blog is high engagement.

    We hate high bounce rate and it’s a bloggers or marketer’s job to diminish or trim it down.

    Using some practical tools to boost your blog content engagement is with no hesitation effective. Bloggers use them to abate the time consumed, but get the most out of the outcome.

    I’ve used some of the tools you’ve listed. Anyone can pick any from your list, I must say. They should consider first the tools that they REALLY need.

    Thanks for sharing!

        Hey,
        I have tried the sniply. It’s a great tool to get traffic to our blog. I am linking the most effective articles of my blogs and it is getting back visitors to my blog. do you use it when you share any link?

          Hi Nikhil!

          That is great to hear man!

          I, personally, do not use this tool. Not at the moment, at least.

          But I can see its potential! 😉

          Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment brother!

    Hi Julie / Freddy,

    Hence your Blog post title drew me in to read its content. Me first, and everyone else wants Blog post engagement. Without Blog post engagement we Bloggers are like performers without an audience.

    You’ve rightly said that it’s the interests of your target audience which determine your success as a Blogger. Hence, using BlogSumo to identify what your target audience is really interested in and then delivering a great Blog post on the same (or parallel) subject is definitely a great way to get engagement.

    Using Tweak Your Biz Title Generator to churn out arresting / engaging Blog post headlines is something I just did not know about. I hopped across and test ran it. Wow! the output was staggering. Thanks, owe you both a cold one on this. Ever think of coming to India I’d be happy to pay off?

    I’ve been using Canva for some time now to create my Blog post header images. I also use Picasa. I find Picasa a little simpler to use than Canva. My only crib is that when you use Picasa most of my Blog header look boringly similar. Probably I need to learn how to get the very best out of Picasa.

    The list of tools you’ve provided is exhaustive. Everything a serious Blogger must have.

    A beautifully researched and well laid out Blog post Julie. Definitely a winner. I’m glad I had the opportunity to read through it.

    I came to your site from a link on kingged.com shared on kingged by Freddy.

      Hi Ivan!

      Blog post engagement is very important for the success of the blog! … that is for sure!

      I’m glad you found something very valuable here, Ivan! …

      Julie shared some great tools that bloggers need to check out and utilize.

      Having the right tools, on your blogging tool belt, can make a big difference in the results you get online!

      There is no doubt about that! 😉

      Creating cool images for your blog posts is a great idea. I do that a lot myself. But I use Photoshop, because I love it, and because I know how to work with it very well! lol

      Thanks you for coming by and leaving a comment, Ivan!

      Have a great week! 😀

    Hi Julie/Freddy,

    This is one the great posts I have read so far. All of the tools you have mentioned are very useful for a blogger. I was recently looking for a tool like HootSuite, where I can manage all my social platforms together. Because, Its very time consuming to manage all the social platforms at one time.

    I have heard about BuzzSumo before but have not given it a try yet. But, since I’m reading about it again and again, thinking to try it now. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful post. All of the tools are equally important and worth giving a try. 🙂

      BuzzSumo is a very powerful tool, that can be very beneficial to your blogging plans, if you really take the time to learn how to use it.

      You should definitely give some of these a try!

      Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment!

      Have a great week! 😀

    Thank you for the valuable post. I already use several of these tools but many of them are new to me and I’m anxious to try them. I’ve been looking for tools like Infogra.me and CoSchedule to streamline my work and help me be more productive and efficient.

  10. Tamas Torok November 26, 2015 at 7:56 am - Reply

    Great list Julie! Thanks for collecting these tools. I have never heard about Socedo.

    I frequently use Coschedule’s headline analyser, which scores your headline and suggest changes to make it better: http://coschedule.com/headline-analyzer

    I also use Buffer (https://buffer.com) for scheduling social media posts and Maya (http://www.brandvee.com/maya) for optimising and increasing social traffic.
