Content creation – without a doubt – is one of the most interesting, rewarding, and versatile professions ever

Content creators not only spend their days creating original content pieces that cater to their audience’s interests and needs but are often involved in the promotion, editing, and lead generation that happens around the content they create.

However, only a content creator knows how many hours of dedication, thinking, and implementation are involved in creating a single piece of content. Just like many other interesting things in life, being a successful content creator is not easy. It requires discipline, hard work, dedication, and, more than anything else, productivity.

If you are a content creator who yearns to be successful in your journey, productivity is the last thing you can overlook. But increasing your productivity is not easy, especially when you don’t know where to start.

You don’t need to wander places, searching for ways to increase productivity. Here’s the good news. Many online tools have the potential to help you manage all your projects with more efficiency across all digital segments. By taking the help of these tools, you can increase your productivity multifold.

The first step to being productive is knowing how to manage multiple projects seamlessly. And this is where Trello comes into play. Talk about project-management tools with a successful content creator, and Trello will be on their list.

Does your role as a content creator involve creating long pieces of written content for different platforms? If yes, you don’t want those written pieces to be laden with errors, do you?

We do not doubt your writing abilities; not at all. However, an error is like the air that manages to creep into written pieces no matter how much attention you pay. It happens with all writers. As such, finding out the errors and correcting them takes a lot of time and effort.

Grammarly finds out the errors for you as you write, gives suggestions to make your writing more clear, concise, and engaging, and also checks your writings for plagiarism (paid). You cannot miss trying out Grammarly if you care about time and your writing.


Just as Grammarly can make your writings clear and error-free, Canva can make your graphics look beautiful and effortless. 

If you are a graphic designer, or if your work involves creating brochures, presentations, or designs in anything that concerns some graphics, you are living under a rock if you don’t know about Canva.

Canva is an all-in-one graphic designing platform that lets you create immersive graphics, edit photos and videos, and prepare presentations, brochures, and whatnot. Do you know what’s best? You can avail all of these services for FREE. That’s right. 

The platform has an amazing free version that provides all the services, albeit without some premium designs and features. Go and try it out now.


While we’re on the path to exploring productivity tools, we can’t miss InVideo. It is a great platform for video creators and editors. Recording a well-made video is not easy. It requires time, effort, and innumerable retakes. But when it comes to editing those videos, that’s an entirely different problem.

InVideo automates the video editing process to a great extent and helps you refine your videos and add animations, music, and filters. With this app, you can also add interactive transitions and effects to your videos. You won’t be disappointed after using this platform if you want to edit your videos more easily and quickly.

InVideo comes in free and paid versions. You can try out the free version and purchase a subscription later if you like.

Google Docs and Sheets

Google never misses a chance to make our lives easier. And this holds true in the context of micro-managing written content and spreadsheets as well. 

Docs and Google Sheets are two of the easiest ways to co-create, edit, and share content across team members as seamlessly as possible, right through your Google account. If you are a content writer, Docs can help you share your written pieces seamlessly with your editor or client. Similarly, Sheets can help you create and edit spreadsheets with others without the need to share files offline.

Google provides all these services absolutely free. Just log in to Google Docs or Sheets with your Google account and start collaborating.

Rev is another productivity tool that’s helpful for digital creators who create videos and those who want to get their videos transcribed into a blog post.

Rev employs human transcribers and translators who listen to a video (or audio) and transcribe it into text. Video creators can find this platform very useful as they can convert their videos into text, add captions, and even provide subtitles in different languages.

As real people are involved in the work, the videos are transcribed much more accurately. But for the same reason, there is no free version.


Many leading productivity experts and content creators recommend Notion as an efficient tool to manage your workspace without the slightest bit of hassle. The platform is similar to Trello in some ways but also very different.

Notion allows users to collaborate, share documents, embed links, and perform endless customizations on the workspace. What’s more, it is also a go-to app for personal use. You can create notes and to-do lists to ensure you remember important things and complete your important tasks on time.

You can sign up on the app and try it before opting for the paid plans.
