Online Video Editor Best Free Tools
- EZVid has been my go-to online video editor all year. I’ve posted my videos to YouTube and other social media sites and shown the videos to my virtual assistant in order to show her what tasks I needed completing.
- Facebook Live I have never hosted a Facebook Live video but many of my blogging friends have and recommend this technique.
- IGTV I enjoy using Instagram Television. The best part: If you don’t have 10,000 followers yet, you’re allowed a live link in your Instagram Stories to your IGTV videos. To use IGTV, you need the IGTV app.
- Instagram Video You can put videos in your Instagram posts, your Instagram Stories, and on IGTV. To post a video in your Instagram feed, you need a square video. To post on Instagram Stories or IGTV, your video should be vertical. Fortunately, many online video editing tools to give you these options.
- Jing was created by TechSmith. According to TechSmith, “Whether for work, home, or play, Jing gives you the ability to create basic visual elements and share them with others.”
- Lumen 5 Lumen 5 has free square videos to post on Instagram and Vertical videos to post on Instagram Stories. Lumen5 is really incredible. Lumen5 automatically makes videos of all your blog posts. You do nothing. Kathryn Maclean recommends Lumen5. “Video blogging can be very easy. I have discovered a service called Lumen5 that takes parts of your article and makes a video of it automatically. I really like it and have added it to promote my articles so far on my Facebook pages.” Here is a Lumen5 video I made to accompany my WordPress Gutenberg Tutorial.

- PosterMyWall One of the many uses for PosterMyWall is to make short videos. Marketing tips recommend using short videos. This makes sense. Consumers of information are busier than ever. It’s faster to see a short video than read a great deal of text. This PosterMyWall video is so short it resembles an ad.

Happily, Storeo breaks my videos into 15-second segments. I load them on Instagram Story, one after the other. BAM! I have a video on Instagram Story the length I want.
- YouTube Many bloggers are using the power of YouTube to draw attention to their sites. Read how you can keep your audience glued to your YouTube channel.
