We could all use a little help from time-to-time, right? If you’re at an agency or an in-house marcom team, you’re probably cranking out multiple deliverables daily and when working at warp speed, it’s nice to have a few tools at your disposal to make sure those deliverables arrive polished and as error-free as possible.
I started this blog post by checking my capitalization (“For”? “for”?) at CapitalizeMyTitle.com. This free sanity check is a game-changer during a long day of varying styles and format requirements.
In real time, Grammarly (available free and with a pro/paid edition) checked my spelling, use, and general grammar. It puts any browser’s built-in spell check to shame and the best part is that it’s trainable and sends you weekly performance reports. I love seeing each week how many different words I used the past week! To really get the most coverage, be sure to download the desktop program as well as the Chrome browser extension to check as many of the pieces you produce for errors.
Speaking of the Chrome browser, have you used its built-in strong password generator? I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t have to sign up for something and concede to said site’s secure password demands. Chrome makes it easy to use something beyond your standard “pet name plus exclamation point” configuration and then, like magic, will remember it across all of your devices – if you’re logged in to Chrome.
Continuing the Team Google theme, our office utilizes several Google Home devices to sync up our playlist tunes across our workspaces. We switch up the playlist daily but ever since last week’s RPRS lunch where Membership Chair Olivia Easly asked us to share our favorite “pump up”/motivation song, we’re totally digging the compilation playlist that came out of that gathering.
