video tools Nov 16, 2019

64% of customers make a purchase after watching branded video content — and social media video content inspires 12-times as many shares as image and text based posts combined.

Plus, the brain processes video up to 60,000 times faster than it does text, which means the right clip could help you make a more emotional connection with potential customers.

For these reasons, content marketers need to “up” their game when it comes to video — and to do that, they need the best tools they can find.

I agree with them, these are some of the best video tools.

Here are my top 6 video tools that I use on a regular basis. 

Video Tool #1: Camtasia & SnagIt from TechSmith

Camtasia is a user-friendly app for Windows and macOS that makes it easy to capture and polish your screen capture for a wide audience.

SnagIt is another tool from TechSmith for capturing and editing footage from your screen. SnagIt easily integrates with services from Google and Microsoft to save you time if you plan to export your video to presentations or documents.

Video Tool #2: PlaceIt

Billed as the internet’s largest repository of visual templates, the platform caters to those designing t-shirts, banners, book covers and, of course, many different kinds of videos.

For video, PlaceIt offers several hundred templates that can provide inspiration, concepts for storyboarding, or the raw materials you need to create professional-looking footage extremely quickly.



Video Tool #3: Canva

While most content marketers might use Canva primarily for graphic design, C&C’s community manager Christin Kardos is a fan of its animation features, too.

Video Tool #4: Animoto

“Animoto makes it so easy to turn still photos and text into a compelling video that’s perfect for the way people consume videos on social media (in short bursts and with the sound off).”

Video Tool #5: Content Samurai

For content marketers, this has to be one of the best video tools for creating slideshow style videos your own content, scripts, articles, or blog posts. This does a great job of creating a finding royalty free video clips and animated images to background your written content. And it's easy to add music with their extensive library of soundtracks. And there are multiple ways to add in your own voiceover audio track.  In fact, if you don't want to use your own voice, they have some AI voices that sound pretty decent.

Video Tool #6: Magisto

Magisto takes a different approach to video editing. By using smart algorithms, this tool plucks out your best photographs and most interesting video clips and assembles them into an exciting, well-crafted piece of video content. You can add a cherry on top with your choice of musical selection, themes and effects.

As content marketers know, editing together a piece of content that keeps the audience’s interest can be an arduous task. Magisto takes the heavy lifting off your hands and makes it simple to create brand-new interpretations of existing footage and photos. It also supports cross-channel marketing thanks to easy exporting and analytics tools. Samsung, Mitsubishi and Zappos have all used and raved about the app — so give it a spin for yourself.
