If you are a new YouTube creator, standing out in a sea of content can be a really hard task no matter how good your videos are. While there’s no substitute for engaging and good-quality content, you need the help of a bunch of tools to attract an audience online. If you’re wondering where to start out, we’ve got you covered. Here is our list of the 7 best apps for YouTube creators in 2023.
YouTube Studio is one quintessential app that should be a part of every content creator’s arsenal. YouTube’s official channel management app lets you connect with your community and handle your channel while you’re on the go. The ‘Channel Dashboard’ gives you a brief insight into how your videos are performing and the rate at which your channel is growing. Using the YouTube Studio app, you can sort through the comments on your videos using various filters and effectively moderate the comment section.
While YouTube Studio is a great app for channel management, it does little to advance your channel’s growth. This is where TubeBuddy comes into play. Can’t think of a catchy title for your video? TubeBuddy will suggest popular and high-performing keywords to craft the perfect title and tags. You will also find various tools that help you drive traffic to your videos and rank them higher in web searches. If that’s not enough, TubeBuddy also helps you test your thumbnails in advance and gives you an idea of how they will perform once you publish your video.
Adobe Premiere Rush
Need to edit videos on the go? Look no further than Adobe. With Adobe Premiere Rush you can arrange videos, audio, graphics, and photos with a simple drag and drop. You can also add graphics and other animations on top of the videos. The built-in camera functionality also lets you record high-quality videos from the editing app itself. On top of that, Adobe Premiere Rush provides thousands of royalty-free soundtracks to go along with your video.
If you want people to stay on your video once they’ve clicked on it, you need to retain their attention with crafty edits and interactive animations. While a good editing tool like Adobe takes care of all the cuts and transitions, you also need interesting graphics to go along with it. Having your video interlaced with text, animations, and graphics keeps it from being dry and one-dimensional. The viewers are less likely to move on to another video when there’s more stuff on the screen to hold their attention. Canva makes it incredibly easy to design graphics, thumbnails, banners, and posters with its accessible tools and thousands of templates. You can apply these graphics to your video in the Canva app itself. There’s even an extensive library of stock images, videos, and gifs to help you along the way.
Screen Recorder by InShot
If you create tutorials or gaming videos for YouTube, you definitely need a solid screen recording app that can take clear and high-definition recordings of the screen. InShot’s Screen Recorder app is the perfect tool for this purpose. First off, this app does not attach a watermark to the recordings, making them suitable to be published online. You can record your screen in HD resolution (1080p) at 60fps. There is no time limit to the length of videos. InShot even lets you record your own voice on top of the screen recording, making it incredibly easy to create tutorial videos. Gaming content creators can also record themselves in a small overlay window using the app’s Facecam.
A good quality intro is one of the elements that separate professional YouTubers from amateurs. Well-recorded intros bring uniformity to your videos. With the Intro Maker app, you can easily create professional intros, outros, and end screens for your YouTube videos. This app has a collection of over 4,000 intro templates along with a plethora of sound effects, stickers, and other graphics. If you’re looking for something more original, you can also design an intro from scratch.
While the apps mentioned on this list will help you manage all creative and editing tasks on your own, sometimes it is not a bad idea to outsource some of the work and let a professional handle it. Fiverr is a platform where you can hire freelancers for various services ranging from scriptwriting, logo design, video editing, animation, and more. If there’s some task that is beyond your expertise, let a professional handle it for you. The price of services on Fiverr begins at $5.
