1. Reduce mistakes with Grammarly.

We all hate typos—especially the kind you catch after sending your latest creation out into the world. Grammarly can help you avoid that next embarrassing error.

Billed as the “world’s leading online proofreader,” this is a must-have for content developers who are doing more work online, away from the shelter of Word’s spelling and grammar checkers. Grammarly offers free extensions for Chrome, Safari or Firefox that provide as-you-write-it assistance.

Once you install Grammarly, it will monitor whatever you type in Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn as well.

2. Write more clearly with Clarity Jargon Buster.

Corporate-speak, buzzwords and jargon have no place in great content.
