You plow through your to-do list, day after day, and suddenly you realize the content you’re producing seems less than your best. Whether you want to get focused, get creative or get to the point, these sites can help you polish and beef up your content. Best of all, they’re free.

1. Hemingway

The real Ernest Hemingway was the king of conciseness. You can be, too.

When you input your text into the Hemingway app, it highlights extraneous words and grades the readability of your copy. Hemingway helps you cut clutter, tighten your sentences and simplify your messaging—just as Papa would have wanted.

2. Canva

Creating stunning graphics has never been simpler.

Canva has hundreds of free templates that empower even those users without experience in graphic design to create beautiful visuals. The site enables you to upload your own colors and fonts—as well as photos and logos—so your content can stay on brand and on point.
