6 Great Social Video Editing Apps

June 8, 2017

Video on social media has gotten pretty huge, and marketers are finding all sorts of creative ways to promote their brand and products through social video. Visual content is 40 times more likely to be shared on social media than other content [1], and according to a 2015 study, marketers who use video see a growth in revenue 49% faster than non-video marketers [2]. So if you’re not already using social video for your business, you might want to give it try.

A well-edited video can really make you look like a pro, but you don’t have to hire a professional or spend a fortune to make a great video. Here are a few budget-friendly social video editing apps to make your videos stand out.
