These tools are intended to do just that - boost engagement!

2 - HubSpot’s Blog Topic Generator - Fill in their form with three nouns that you want to blog about. They then generate different article ideas for you:

 

 

3 - LICEcap - Turn a screenshot into an awesome GIF that catches people attention and encourages them to stay on your page.

 

4 - Import.io - Create visual lists based off of information and data from a webpage. People love data and stats, but more importantly, people love visuals. This is the perfect combination between the two.

 

5 - Click To Tweet - Enter a message in your blog that people can directly tweet from your page. This encourages visitors to share your material directly in their social media:

 

 

 

6 - Disqus - Keep track of user comments so you don’t miss a single post from a potential customer
