>> PowToon is a super-simple app that helps you create animated videos that will truly engage your audience.

>> Adobe Kuler is a service that lets you create your own color palette or choose from thousands of existing ones. Why is that important?

>> Canva is a true delight for any content marketer. You can use this free tool to create a multitude of different images for web and print—blog graphics, buttons, social media images and business cards are just a few of your options.

>> If you’re looking to create an infographic, Piktochart is one tool you can’t ignore. It features a set of themes and templates you can use as the base of your infographic—all you have to do is add your data and text.

>> Sometimes the best way to emphasize your point is to use images to back up your words. In these cases Awesome Screenshot is priceless.

>> That’s where QuotesCover comes in. This tool helps you turn words of wisdom into awesome looking e-cards, social media profile images and even prints.

>> If you have a website, app or other online product, I think you’re going to like Placeit. The app allows you place your own video or picture in a template so you can show others how your product or image will look on different devices.
