Monday Morning Cool Tool: StoryLab.ai

 

I love learning about new tools to make social media marketing more creative and effective, so I’ve decided to share some of my favourite tools with you at the start of each week. This week’s cool tool recommendation is StoryLab.ai- an AI copy generator that helps you generate copy ideas, hooks, outlines and ready-made copy for marketing purposes.

Whether you’re looking to create an Instagram caption, a blog title, or ad copy, this tool is designed to inspire you.

Here’s How To Use StoryLab

Begin by selecting the type of content you want to create. 

In the example below, I’ve inputted “social media marketing strategy” as a blog topic and the tool has generated some ideas for headlines. 

Here’s what happens when I input the same term into the email subject line generator.

And here’s what is returned when I ask for ideas for a social media post. I have to say this is by far the most impressive result.

I’ve only recently been introduced to this tool, but I can already see I am going to save some time testing out its features over the coming week.

Pricing

You get 25 “runs” per month for free with StoryLab. Upgrade to a basic package to get 250 runs or unlimited runs with the top-tier package.

Monday Morning Cool Tool: Buzzsumo

This week’s cool tool recommendation is Buzzsumo a useful tool to explore what pieces of content are popular on social media around a certain topic.

Use it to analyze what content performs best for any topic or competitor, and find the key influencers to promote your content.

Here’s an overview of what turns up when I input “social media marketing tips” into Buzzsumo’s search tool.


I can easily determine which posts are most popular through the number of shares they get.

And here’s what I see when I input my own domain name into the search bar. I could do the same with my competitors’ domains and see what is performing well for them.

The free version is useful to get a quick snapshot, but if you are interested in doing more with the tool, such as viewing backlinks and who is sharing your content, you will need to upgrade to the paid version.
