Dear Copy Bitch: I really love all the tidbits of advice you’ve been giving on your blog. Here’s a “weird” question: name three “tools” you use in your business that the rest of us could use in ours.
Answer: Here are two tools I use a lot and one I recently discovered and am looking forward to using for the first time:
1. Color Cop: I learned about Color Cop from Constant Contact’s Zak Barron. I sometimes design newsletter templates for my email marketing clients, and this free, downloadable tool makes getting a color’s hex values (also known as RGB) an absolute breeze.
2. Visual Thesaurus: If you’re a visual person, then Visual Thesaurus is for you. What a great way to discover the perfect word for marketing copy, taglines, you name it.
3. Ask500People: Wouldn’t it be great if you could “test” your new logo or tagline on real people and get feedback? Now you can, and quite economically with Ask500People.
