Divi by Elegant is another top selling, powerful and flexible WordPress theme that allows you to create clean and responsive websites keeping the content in mind. This theme is perfect for both creative and corporate. Divi allows you to build anything visually.
Another crucial part of your website is the content. You will not always be ready to write it yourself or check it for that matter, so here are some tools and services to help you with it.
If you don’t have time to write your own content, this is perhaps one of the best services to do it for you. Trust My Paper offers various options when it comes to making an order. You can also arrange for a certain deadline or add various additional tasks to be done.
If you write your content yourself, you obviously need to be able to have a reliable to proofreading tool that will check it for you. Grammarly will point out your grammar, spelling, and punctuation mistakes and propose how to correct them. There are also premium features such as checking the word choice or a human proofreader going through your text.
A popular alternative to Grammarly, Hemingway App has somewhat of a different purpose than the former. Hemingway App (or Editor) checks your text for wordy sentences, excessive adverbs, and passive speech. Then it highlights these parts and asks you to remove them.
Google Translate can be primarily used for localizing your content to other languages in order to reach a bigger audience. However, it will still probably have to be checked by an editor. In addition to that, you can use the online tool to translate the information you found for your content.
If you have a group of writers working together, then Google Docs will be perfect for sharing the documents. You can edit the text in real time, and once you are done, export it.
In order for your site to function properly, you will most probably need to establish yourself on social media too. This is why we gathered some of the best social media management tools for you to check out.
HootSuite is one of the best social media management tools currently available on the market. It offers a whole array of various features from planning posts to tracking your statistics and performance. It has a free version, but you can also upgrade to a paid one or buy paid features if you want more functionality.
Very similar to HootSuite, CoSchedule is also a social media marketing app that provides different features for its users. The only difference between HootSuite and CoSchedule is that the latter does not have a free version and you will have to buy the package right away in order to use it.
Buffer is a social media management platform with such features as publishing with a queue, analytics, engagement, and team features. The tool easily integrates with such social media platforms as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Sendible is best for agencies with its many features and its own CRM. You can schedule posts, monitor social engagement, and even search for influencers. It even has a white label solution and a separate dashboard for each client.

Last but not least, adding images to your content can dramatically increase your statistics. Use these apps and software to create beautiful imagery, gifs, and videos.
Adobe Photoshop is perhaps the most well-known editing software. You can do anything on it, from applying effects to photos to creating your own illustrations.
If you are looking for an easier alternative to Photoshop, then Canva is the one for you. It has a whole array of different features as well as a huge library of millions of pre-made templates for you to use.
Infographics have become quite popular recently and users love them just as much as illustrations, if not more. Easel.ly is perfect for creating engaging and eye-catching infographics to go along with your content. It also features hundreds of templates for you.
While the first three are for working with images, Picasion lets you create GIFs. You can import still images from your device, Picasa, or Flickr. Then, you can make a gif and share it on social media or embed it on your site.
Animoto is an online video maker that will help you create an engaging video from scratch. It is very easy to use and has a nice design, so you don’t have to be an expert to use it.
