Create Or Buy A Tool, Make It Free

Create a digital tool and share it.

If it has value and saves a bunch of time then you’ll get a ton of love and respect for it.

Sound difficult? No, because it isn’t.

Head to “code canyon” (Google it) and you’ll find a plethora of scripts and tools you can buy for a very reasonable price.

If the tool doesn’t quite do what you want it to do then outsource it on UpWork ( and ask a developer to tweak it to your heart’s content.

As an example, I found a Plagiarism Tool that costs USD$ 8.

Other examples include bitcoin calculators, admin tools, and a bunch of miscellaneous scripts like “Local Google Results Scraper” which would look great on your site if it were included within a mega piece of content.

What I’d suggest you do is buy it, tweak it to your niche, make it yours, and promote it.

An extreme version of this hack is Neil Patel’s Uber Suggest.

SEO Tools, especially the Keyword Tools, are notoriously expensive. He offers a tool that does a lot of the same functionality as the biggest names out there like SEMRush and AHRefs and offers it for free.

Matthew Woodward, another highly reputable SEO blogger, has a fantastic example of this with a simple PHP script that generates some code to place on your site to get your FAQ’s to rank higher in Google.

In summary, search for tools that could help your community and promote it!
