#David Schneider [NinjaOutReahc.om | Twitter]
David Schneider is the cofounder of NinjaOutreach an all in one Prospecting and Outreach tool which was created to streamline the process of connecting with influencers.
His Best Tools are :
- Long Tail Pro
- Google’s Adword Keyword Planner
- Ninja Outreach – my own tool and this was primarily built for outreach but I also find it useful for keyword research mainly because of some data points that I consider to be important such as the articles that are ranking for the keyword in Google, their domain authority, their page authority, the number of backlinks they have, and other social and contact data.
Thanks David for your time and Good luck ahead with your tool!

# Tim larkin [Website]
Tim is a great friend of mine. I know him since 2013. He deals in Web designing and printing industry. So i thought to take a opinion on what are the top keyword research tools used by a web designer and here is what he answered :
- Use my head!! Think about what I would enter into a search myself. This is probably one of the most important steps.
- Use Google Keyword Planner to get a few more ideas based on the above.
- Use LongTailPro to uncover more data on the keyword list to pick out some winners based on KW competition and search volume.
- I have started using Ninja Outreach and it’s really working well so it’s another tool, i would recommend.
Thanks Hassaan for your time.
