People are currently reading this guide.

According to a report by Timedoctor, more than 70% of freelance writers handle at least four writing projects at once. This report shows being a freelancer is not an easy task to do, because you have to keep up with client obligations, continuously focus on improving your writing skills, and always try to build a strong online presence for a successful career. 

The problem is that you have only a number of hours (8-12), so you have to work as efficiently as possible which can be done if you only spend your both time and effort on major tasks. For other writing tasks such as generating catchy titles, managing deadlines, and many more, you can take help from online tools which further helps in boosting overall productivity.

Fortunately, many good tools are available that can help freelance writers streamline their writing process. In this article, we are going to look at the top three tools that can be really helpful in this regard. 

3 Tools That Can Help in Boosting Your Productivity as Freelance Writer

Below, we have discussed three online tools that can help boost productivity for freelancers, let’s take a look at them. 


On top of the list, we have Trello, it is one of the most popular project management tools that empower freelancers to manage any kind of project, workflow, and task tracking also. The tool has quite easy to understand interface making it easy for both beginners and professional freelancers to keep track of their projects. 

With the help of Trello, freelance writers can do the following:

  • Add files 
  • Do checklists 
  • Task schedulers
  • Time-tracking. 

One of the best features of Trello is that it allows writers, especially those working as a team, to create a board from already available templates. The writer’s team can use this board in order to share instructions about the content and update about how the work is going. Not just this, the board also gives the set deadline date and other information as reminders for the work. 

For a better understanding, we have created a free account on Trello and created a board in order to see how it works. We have attached a picture below check it out. 


Trello is available in both free and paid versions. The free version allows users to organize their important files and projects, adding start and end dates, and many more. 

For paid users, the tool offers some additional features such as a timeline view feature that allows users to monitor how all the moving parts of a running project fit together. 


Paraphraser.io is a well-known paraphrasing tool allowing writers to paraphrase their written content in a more fluent and natural way. The tool utilizes advanced AI algorithms that first understand the language and context of the content, and then paraphrase it by replacing words/phrases with the most appropriate synonyms. 

To provide you with a better idea of how the tool paraphrases the content, we are going to provide it with a piece plagiarized piece of text in order to see how it improves its quality and makes it unique. For the result, see the attachment below:

As can be seen in the image above, the tool has paraphrased the given text by replacing words/phrases with more informative and easier to understand synonyms. So, with the help of this paraphrasing tool writers can make their written content more professional since the tool also improves the overall sentence, sentence length, and tone as well. 

Additionally, this paraphrasing tool comes with a number of rephrasing modes (six modes) for writers with different writing requirements. Each mode utilizes different algorithms to paraphrase the text, resulting in different outputs for each mode. 


Paraphraser.io is available in both free and paid versions. The free version offers a 600-word limit for the first three modes (fluency, standard, and word changer). 

When it comes to paid plans, the tool offers multiple options to choose from weekly ($7), monthly ($20), and yearly ($12.5). The paid version comes with a maximum 1500-word limit per submission allowing writers to paraphrase articles at once without dividing them into several portions. 

Blog Topic Generator by HubSpot

Finally, we have the Blog Topic Generator tool by HubSpot. The reason for including this tool in our list is that most of the time writers end up creating highly informative and professionally written content. 

And still get failed to grab the attention of the user due to a lack of productivity in the title, especially if they have already written a lot of articles on that specific topic. This is where this tool comes into play.

The generator gives writers a number of catchy ideas for the given keyword helping them to come up with engaging and creative ideas to grab the attention or increase traffic. 

In order to use this generator, all you have to do is provide a maximum of five keywords (relevant to each other), and then the tool will generate a bunch of ideas for the input keywords. To provide you with a better idea of how this tool work, we have provided the tool with the following keywords. 

“Gaming mouse”, “ASUS gaming mouse”, “best gaming mouse”

After giving these keywords, the tool has provided us with five different catchy ideas. See the image below:

 As you have seen, the tool has generated a bunch of catchy titles, although these are not 100% perfect writers may need to edit or reword them according their requirements. But using the tool will definitely give a good idea to the writers on how they can make informative and catchy titles. 


The Blog topic generator is also available in both free and paid versions. The free version provides a maximum 5 topic ideas while the paid will provide users with up to 250 topic ideas.
