Over the last few years, video content has proven to be a good way to attract people’s attention on social media. However, creating high-quality content that does that isn’t as easy as you might think.
If you’ve been creating digital content for a while, you’ve probably realized that it can be a bit time-consuming and difficult at times. Furthermore, if you are using multiple social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and so on, then, you should’ve also learned by now, that each platform acts differently towards various file types.

For example, Facebook can take advantage of 4K video and a 360-degree view, while Instagram needs to heavily compress these large files and doesn’t even support some of them. However, you can use similar tools for both platforms and the outcome will be pretty much the same.
Needless to say, online exposure has never been more difficult to accumulate as more and more businesses are using the same tools and strategies to attract organic traffic, which due to the lack of creativity cause digital content to go unseen. The good news is, that there are loads of (professional) content creation tools that you can get for a decent price as well as some free services and tools that will make your life much easier.
These tools will help you edit your images and/or video footage and export that high-quality content to your social media profiles as well as provide more exposure. So let’s get to know some of them, shall we?
