With the growing usage of video on various channels, video is becoming one of the most important content format to generate leads and promote products. Fortunately, there are numerous online video production tools for easy yet professional video production. Each tool specializes in different areas of content thus we’ve prepared the top 10 video marketing and production tools for different purposes and specialization with reviews from actual users. Check them out and see which one can help achieve your marketing goal! 

Video editing tools  

1. Quik 

Quik is a mobile app developed by GOPro. Using Quik, you can easily add and organize videos directly from your phone’s gallery with Quik’s various original music, exclusive filters, and themes. Moreover, you can easily edit, add, move, and crop the video like any other video editing software. One of the interesting features of Quik is automatic video creation. The automatic video creation feature creates music-synced videos with your video selections. This feature can be especially useful for those who need to produce videos in a short period of time. Last but not least, if you are a GoPro camera owner, there are several extra features that make video production even more convenient. For example, you can use your phone as a remote for your GoPro, preview shots before transferring them to Quik, broadcast a live stream, and more! 

One downside of Quik is limited elements for marketing or advertising purposes. As Quik specializes in video editing, it does not provide visual elements like animated text or props. Thus, we recommend Quik for the basic video editing like cropping or adding filters and use other tools to add more marketing elements.

Social media video tools 

3. Mojo

Mojo is a mobile app that specializes in creating eye-catching social media content. As Mojo focuses on social media content, it provides various templates – Typography, Digital, Shop, Storytelling, Cinema, and Fashion – in a vertical layout that fits the phone screen. Furthermore, there are various fonts, filters, and visual elements powerful for marketing purposes. However, this also means Mojo is not capable of a film-like video or non-marketing purpose videos. Thus, we recommend Mojo for social media advertisements or regular stories.

8. Canva 

While Canva is well-known for designing flyers, invitations, and social media content, it is also a great video production tool. Canva provides 100+ million photos and 610,000+ templates with new designs daily. Many of these useful elements are not limited to a paid subscription but also to a free plan. You can enjoy thousands of free templates, photos, graphics, and collaboration options even with the free plan. Thus, if you are new to video production or not sure which tool to use, Canva can be a great starting point.

One of the unique features of the Canva video service is the slideshow format. It may sound new and confusing but with their video templates, you will be able to quickly adapt to it. One thing to note is the length of the video template. Since Canva is in a slideshow format, each template only lasts for several seconds. So if you plan to produce a long video, Canva may not be the best option.
