Don't Hit Publish
Does your writing suck? Find out.
Don't Hit Publish will tell you if your blog post is a complete pile of crap or not. And it'll show you what to do about it if it sucks.
I'm on the Videofruit team and am so excited for our students to use this tool. It fired me up to go and use it on my blog posts to see how I compared. Great tool to help you get better and more effective at writing so that you can help more people with your content.Pros:
Easy to use, gives you EXACT steps to takeCons:
It doesn't do it for you :)
Excited to see how much better my writing - and business results - are once I get into the habit of using Don't Hit PublishPros:
Love the tips being on hand, just as I'm about to put something new out into the worldCons:
Would love it I could FORCE myself to use this EVERY time I'm about to put something out.
I love that this product is available. Sometimes I feel my posts are great and the ones that are not truly great I usually wonder what would make them better. This is helpful.Pros:
I love that it gives tips on how to make the blog post better. I'm not the best writer yet so that is truly very helpful.Cons:
I've not used it more than once yet, so I'm not sure on this one.
I like the idea of running down a checklist before publishing. Really can help to make you stand back a little and consider what you want to achieve with a post.
While the tips are helpful, they are also very generic and very predictable as they are probably based on your own star ratings in the checklist. Without the app reading and reviewing the actual content, I guess there isn't much more that can be done.Pros:
Email with the tips straight to your inboxCons:
Tips are generic
I decided to insert a generic post idea and analysed it for "sales generation". The tool scored it 44. This shows I can trust the result of this tool. Thumbs up Bryan, your tool is as useful as your blog is.Pros:
Nice tool. A "third eye" for my post before I hit publishCons:
I think the number of fields can reviewed and also the star ratings changed to 1 - 10.
My first go got a pass so I don't yet know if this feature is installed but maybe a feedback on the topic
I'm definitely going to be recommending this to others. ☺ Great job as usual 👌👌👏👏 My only regret is that I didn't learn of Bryan & Jeremy sooner.Pros:
I love that it's simple to use and has the suggestions at the end about how I can improve.Cons:
I really am enjoying it so far; I feel this product will help me be even more focused as I'm writing blog posts and subsequent email copy. What a good reminder to be clear in my communication!Pros:
Very easy to navigate and the specific questions are perfect for the specific type of email it is.Cons:
There are some cosmetic issues like an image overlaid on text.
Simple idea which provides a checklist of items to check against your blog post. The ultimate end game would have an algorithm which reads the content of the post as well to make sure the content itself is written to a high standard (grammer, spelling, content and even SEO).
Also a minor point, some of the actual language used in the questioning doesn't naturally fit a rating response as they are binary (yes/no) questions rather than quantifiable questions.Pros:
Star rating perhaps a little clunky.
