1. Gravity Forms

Every content creator should collect their audience’s email addresses, but coding custom forms for your site is a pain. If you’re a WordPress user (and most creators are), you need a simple way to build forms. You could create surveys, questionnaires, applications, and – of course – lead generation forms. 

The easiest and most reliable way to create forms is with Gravity Forms – the leading forms plugin. It allows you to build as many forms as you need, as complex or as simple as you like. It also offers dozens of add-ons to extend the plugin’s functionality and integrate with other tools.

2. GFChart

A unique way to bolster the value of your content is to make it easier for your readers to understand. Presenting data is challenging, however, because readers have difficulty connecting with it. But if you use a chart or graph, you can communicate your data in a way that readers find clear and engaging.

GFChart is a chart builder plugin designed to display your Gravity Forms data in an attractive way. You can showcase complex data sets without overwhelming your audience. Building a chart is quick and easy. No coding necessary.

It also offers marketing tools to help you generate the best results. It allows you to host live or automated presentations in HD that your audience can attend in their browser. 

Demio also comes with marketing tools, such as custom registration pages, automated email notifications, and forms you can embed anywhere. Show off your materials, screen, or face, then engage with your audience in the chat. 

6. Trello

Trello is a kanban-style project management tool for creators and their teams that is simple enough for most content creators. Using it is simple: Create columns for phases of your content production process and cards for each project. Move your cards through each phase to keep track of each project. Invite collaborators, integrate your other apps, and take advantage of the automation tools for maximum organization. 

7. Hootsuite

If you’re creating social media content, you need to share it, but navigating each platform is a pain.

We particularly like the calendar tool that gives you a high-level view of your content production.
