5 Free Tools to Increase Productivity and Find Time


Free tools for finding time!

Free tools are always welcome, especially when you’re on-line and on a budget.

So I’m pleased to share 5 free tools that we like and use a lot, here at The Time Finder.

We’ve found them to be very helpful for generating ideas, connecting on social media, and keeping track of how we’re doing.

Let’s jump right in, shall we?

Headline Analyzer

The Headline Analyzer was developed by the Advanced Marketing Institute. It offers a quick way to produce punchy headlines for articles, blog posts, e-books, etc. Here’s how they describe their tool:

This free tool will analyze your headline to determine the Emotional Marketing Value (EMV) score. As you know, reaching your customers in a deep and emotional way is a key to successful copywriting, and your headline is unquestionably the most important piece of copy you use to reach prospects.

Your headline will be analyzed and scored based on the total number of EMV words it has in relation to the total number of words it contains. This will determine the EMV score of your headline.

In addition to the EMV score, you’ll find out which emotion inside your customer’s your headline most impacts: Intellectual, Empathetic, Spiritual

The headline for this post scored 62.50% — which is pretty good!

Blog Topic Generator

Then there’s the HubSpot Blog Topic Generator. This tool is helpful when you’re feeling stuck for something to write about. Just enter some keywords (preferably nouns) and the site will generate 5 possible topics. The topics are offered as titles. So this tool functions as a title generator, too.

Page Speed Insights

Google Page Speed Insights analyzes the performance of any web page you enter. It also offers advice about fixing the problems it uncovers. We recently had some page-loading issues here at The Time Finder, and Google Page Speed Insights helped us zero in on the problems and fix them.
