  1. Wow, your quick navigation box at the top is so useful! I have heard of some of them and tried others and I’m very satisfied with Wealthy Affiliate and Grammarly. Although grammarly seems to have a few glitches every once in a while but nothing major.

    I used to use picmonkey back when they had a free version. I was pretty disappointed that they switched over to a subscription. But I really liked their easy photo editing options. It was super helpful for someone who doesn’t want to get into photoshop or other complex editing software. So I would definitely recommend it to others as well.

    I have bookmarked your page and you can be sure I will be using some of these resources with my own online business!

      Glad you found it helpful Mariah!

  2. I love Jaaxy! It’s a great research tool. I use it mainly for keyword research and it gives me fantastic ideas, especially when I look for new niches. 

    I also use Grammarly — I recently updated to Premium for plagiarism check and advanced grammar check. I also use Canva. 

    I recently read about SEMrush. Do you know if it’s any good? 

    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Jenny, SEMrush is a great tool but I don’t advise it for beginners as it’s far too advanced. Thanks for reading!

  3. Thank you so much for this fabulous post!

    I was looking for some online tools for headlines and CoSchedule is what I’ve been looking for! Thanks!!

    Already using Grammarly – love it, absolutely love it. However will check the Hemingway Editor as well. Anything that will help with my writing is a welcome addition.

    Canva is fantastic too. It has been a savior and even their free version is great too.

    A great compilation. Very useful indeed!

      Thanks Alenka!

  4. Thank you for this great list Stephan. On no #4 you talk about MailChimp, they do not like the MMO niche, and as soon as they detect this, they will kick you out. I do love “Answer the Public” too. And I don’t know what I’d do without Grammarly. I have to investigate some of the others on your list. My no #1 tool is Wealthy Affiliate too, directly followed by Canva.

      Thanks Loes!

  5. Great list. I think this is a really helpful post for anyone in the website business. I will do my best to avoid shiny object syndrome 😉 There are a lot of tools out there in the world so it is difficult for a simple human such as myself to navigate them all to find the diamonds among the coal.

    I obviously can’t use all the tools you have mentioned but I will definitely remember your site for future reference as my business grows.

      Thanks for reading Renton!

  6. I’ll have to look at Clicky. I don’t use Google Analytics because it takes ages to download on my computer.

    Another useful tool is the Pomodoro timer. It’s a system whereby you work for two hours and take a five minute break every twenty-five minutes, and then a twenty minute break after two hours. There are a number of these timers on YouTube.

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      Yup, I’m aware of Pomodoro too, good recommendation!

  7. Hi, Stephan, I’m so glad I found this post it was exactly what I needed, I did not realize there were so many useful tools and software I can use to improve my website. I’m part of the wealthy affiliate program so I can use the jaaxy tool and the hosting, I was actually using some of the ones you mentioned here like Grammarly, canva, picmonkey, but I will try the other ones too: ) I just added this into my web bookmarks so I can check it out when I need it. Thanks again!
