Content marketing tools help you automate tasks, collaborate with your team and improve productivity and performance. 

But choosing the right content tools can be challenging, especially with so many options available. In this article, we’ll explore 19 essential content marketing tools to help supercharge your content strategy in 2024.

The importance of content marketing in 2024

Content marketing is one of the most effective ways to build brand awareness, generate authority in your space, and drive more qualified leads.

“Content marketing is a unique opportunity to impact brand and performance — while serving as the flywheel for the organization. Content gives everyone something to say,” said Tracey Wallace, director of content strategy at Klaviyo. “It’s both strategy and service, both brand building and lead generating, both top of funnel and bottom.” 

Keeping up with the demands of content is not easy and the stakes are not low. Here are some (sometimes conflicting) statistics to put things into perspective.

  • 67% of marketers said content marketing generates leads (which is a 7% increase since last year). 
  • Content marketing generates triple the leads as outbound marketing and also costs 62% less.
  • 51% of businesses that invest in content marketing publish something daily.
  • 44% of B2B buyers consume between 3-5 pieces of content before making a purchase decision
  • 83% of marketers say it’s better to focus on content quality over quantity, even if it means posting less often.

What does all this mean? Creating content that engages audiences while keeping your name buzzing is all about balancing quality with quantity.

“Content marketing keeps your company front and center online,” said Ashley Cummings, a freelance writer and marketing specialist. “If you let your content efforts slide, your competitors will win. Online consumers can’t buy from you if they can’t find you.”
