Today we’re going to check out some really handy tools to help you along the way. Let’s not waste another moment with introductions… you’re really going to like this one!
If you’re into using multiple fonts for visual impact on anything from blogs to social posts then this very handy little web-tool is for you. It works around core design principles to help keep your paired-fonts looking crisp and eye catching so you don’t have to worry about the technicalities of it all. Simply adjust the slider and watch what happens. http://fontjoy.com
This one is practically magic thanks to it’s OCR Technology (optical character recognition) which is geek speak for taking pictures of words and converting them into actual font so you can use them like any other word processing document would. Want to take inspiration off something you’ve read at the bookstore but don’t have the time to type it all out on that tiny keyboard on your phone’s screen? Just snap a picture of the pages into this free app and convert the text in those images into actual editable text you can then edit to your heart’s content!
This nifty free app allows you to take snaps of yourself and create nearly-instant gif images of yourself which can be animated or still frames. You can then take those and use them anywhere they’re supported (which is practically everywhere these days) from Facebook to Instagram and eve on your own text and messaging apps. This is a great way to help you brand yourself if that’s your aim, or you can use it to take pictures of other things to your own liking, give it a try because it’s actually pretty neat. https://sticky-ai.com
Sometimes figuring out a percentage for something, be it conversion rates, return on investment, segmentations or whatever can be annoying if you’re basic math skills aren’t up to par. Don’t sweat it if they aren’t most of us tend to forget all about our old math skills eventually, but you don’t need to worry about all that now.

This one is meant to be helpful for those who are in the Instagram marketing scene. If you know anything about it then you’ll know what I mean when I say that hashtag spacing is a pain! With this took you can have a much wider separation or gap between the text/description and your chosen hashtags which makes things look much cleaner and really helps those tags pop!
Similar to the Sticky AI app already mentioned above, this app allows you to take some pretty neat images and create looping animations from them. Not only is it capable of that, but it can do this with still images and some pretty cool visual effects as well! This app has both a free and a premium version so how far you choose to go with it is completely up to you but it’s definitely worth check out the free version to see if it suits you.

Well, this one in particular is very handy if you’re in need of that little extra bit of assistance in ‘grading’ your writing performance. This free browser-based editor has a number of helpful tools built right into it which do things like grade your writing based on a “grade level system”. It also highlights points where you might need help with things like grammar and sentence structure as you’re typing.

Ever seen those simple videos which are just an audio clip accompanied by text on the screen with some animated backgrounds, and perhaps the text itself is even animated? That’s what this really useful app is all about. It can create clips of informative audio/visual videos up to 5-minutes in length which you can then use to do things like promote an offer or just share with prospects as a clever way to share information.
