        Video Creating Apps

        Thanks to modern technologies (and market demand), plenty of tools have cropped up to make the lives of marketers and small business owners easier by helping to create and edit video content. These are the tools you can start with:

        • Lumen5 – takes a blog post you’ve already written and turns it into video material
        • Placeit – this platform has a ton of mockups – both mockup images, and, you guessed it, mockup videos. Videos like this onethis or this here let you place your own designs on the t-shirts.
        • Nutshell – combine images, captions, and elements that come together in a mini video
        • Magisto – similar to Nutshell, shoot small video clips on your phone, then add captions, elements, backgrounds, and music

        Advertising

        Facebook Tool

        Use this Facebook tool to check if you’re within the boundaries. 

        Facebook will penalize your content by showing it to fewer people if the image contains too much text.

        Facebook Sharing Debugger

        You can use the Sharing Debugger to see the information that is used when your website content is shared on Facebook, Messenger and other places. The Batch Invalidator will let you refresh this information for multiple URLs at the same time. Open Graph markup lets you take control over how your website content appears to others. Learn More

        Sub Titles

        If you don’t want your hard work to go to waste, be sure to subtitle your videos, especially the ones you share on your social media accounts. Yes, it does take a bit of your time, but it’s certain to capture more interest. Here are some free tools you can use to do it:
