Below I’ve mentioned 5 essential tools to help you with how to plan your blog content

Trello is a very easy to use project management tool that I personally use for help when it comes to planning, collecting, and organizing my ideas for my blog content and production schedule.
It is also a very practical tool when several people are involved in creating content because it allows you to follow the progress of everyone’s work and share ideas for articles and plans.
Trello is very useful for structuring your work. If you’re struggling with how to plan your blog content and organize your ideas, Trello may be the answer for you.
Canva is an online design software that I use literally every day for my blog. With Canva, you can easily make cool designs to illustrate your blog articles, product sheets, or post on social networks. I’m talking everything from Pinterest Pins to Instagram and Facebook graphics. Canva is a very interesting graphic tool, giving you access to a large bank of images, icons, illustrations, fonts of all styles.
The free version of Canva is very useful but paying for CanvaPro is so worth it because the sky is the limit when it comes to what you can do with it. Canva is very easy to use and practical when you do not have a graphic designer or web designer on your team; this tool is accessible to everyone and is by far my favorite blogging tool.
Infogram is another online tool that allows you to create your infographics quickly and easily. You have access to a wide choice of proposed designs. You can easily insert graphics, maps, photos, videos to your infographics. Then all you have to do is share your infographics with your community on your social networks or blog.
Infogram is an important tool to have on hand, given the effectiveness of infographics in content marketing. In addition to its free version, Infogram offers four professional subscriptions that give you access to various additional options, for example for the Business subscription.
Buffer facilitates your sharing on social networks by allowing you to manage your social networks through a single interface. In addition to saving you time, Buffer’s great advantage is that it allows you to plan your posts and shares for your various social networks. This tool also allows you to analyze the performance of your different posts. Thanks to Buffer, you can manage your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and now Pinterest accounts all from one place.
