Answer the Public

If you write your own blog and are searching for content ideas, you will love this tool. AnswerThePublic is kind of like a search engine. As you type keywords into the search box, you are presented with questions real people have typed into Goggle, which gives you a hint of their motivations and emotions. It gives you a simple visualization of the data, that then can be used to create useful content for your next post.  This insight is there for anybody to use and I use it very regularly and I get a lot of inspiration from this tool. They are offering a free short email course to learn more about using the autocomplete data for ideas. They offer a free version, for bloggers & solo marketers, but it is only a throttles use. If you go Pro it is $99 a month, but you get an abundance of features, like language and location-based results, high-resolution images and comparing reports. You can sign up through this link

This is by far my favorite Plugin that I use.  And if you are serious about getting traffic to your website, you might want to consider using this Social Media Plugin for WordPress. This Plugin is packed with features, and super easy to use. Their customer service if you do have a question is outstanding. When I first started to use it, I had an issue with the picture that was being shared to my FB and my Pinterest account, and after I raised a support ticket, within the hour I got a response and one person consistently ( thank you Alex for all your help) helped me to figure out what the issue was. After an update to the Plugin, everything worked like a charm.

What you’ll get with this plugin, just to show a few of the features are:

  • Icons for over 100 platforms
  • Over 20 icon design options
  • Over 200 themed design styles, matching the topic of your website
  • The best sharing, liking & following features
  • Place the icons exactly where you want 
  • Optimized icons for mobile display
  • Keeps your site loading fast
  • Show share counts
  • Select from a range of functions for your email icon
  • Show a pop-up asking users to like, share or follow you, with various setting options
  • No “Powered by”-link, i.e. your site stays clean
  • Many more settings and options
