Web Content Creation Tools: Top Picks for 2013

14 Jan
"Web Content Creation Tools – Top Picks for 2013" Winner's Badge

Deerfield, IL (PRWEB) January 14, 2013

Matt About Business is proud to announce the winners of the first annual “Web Content Creation Tools – Top Picks” award. The award recognizes the best solutions available for creating different types of web content.

“The irony of content marketing is that the key element, web content creation, is the greatest obstacle to success,” explains Matt Mansfield, President of Matt About Business. “Aside from the “stage fright” many folks feel when thinking about others reading their posts, listening to their podcasts or watching their videos, it’s easy to get overwhelmed when choosing the tools to use for creating web content.”

To combat this obstacle and make effective content marketing more accessible to all, Mansfield decided to create the annual “Web Content Creation Tools – Top Picks” award. Winners of the award are selected based on the features, functionality and ease-of-use of their content marketing creation solution.

“How do you know that these are the best content creation tools?” asks Mansfield. “Because after trying many similar solutions, these are the tools I use to create content for my own sites.”

The “Web Content Creation Tools – Top Picks” awards are given in eight categories, each one focusing on a different type of web content. The winners for each category in 2013 are:

Category: Websites and Blogs
Winner: WordPress

Category: Downloadable Documents
Winner: Adobe Acrobat

Category: Videos
Winner: Camtasia

Category: Webinars
Winner: GoToWebinar

Category: Infographics
Winner: Piktochart

Category: Social Media Updates

1) Inbound:

The goal of Inbound.org is to enable great content from the world of inbound marketing to get noticed. There’s an amazing community of bloggers, marketers and enthusiasts passionate about non-paid channels like SEO (search engine optimization), social media, content marketing, conversion rate optimization, etc. and we believe they deserve a site where sharing great content is controlled by them.

2) Instagram:

A picture  is worth a thousand words, and Instagram has plenty of photos to go around with one hundred million users and billions of photos between them. Instagram is a fast, beautiful and fun way to share your photos with friends and family. Snap a picture, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, then post to Instagram. Share to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr too – it’s as easy as pie. It’s photo sharing, reinvented.

3) Myspace:

MySpace social media network is back, again. They are sticking to their roots by empowering people to express themselves however they want.  This is especially true for musicians, photographers, filmmakers, designers and dedicated fans. The website’s still in closed beta at the moment but will be released soon. The new look, new management and direction of the site  make it one that’s worth following in 2013!
