We create a lot of content for the website, our clients, and our community members. Here are the top 5 content creation tools we use.
Content Creation Tools You Can Use
[0:00] – Introducing this episode: A tour of five content creation tools.
- Each week, the team creates YouTube Videos, webinars, a podcast episode, two livestreams, and other content for the community.
- Each and every one of these content pieces need supporting social media images and other promotional material
[6:06] – The top 5 content creation tools that help the team in creating content for the DottoTech channel and Grey Matters podcast. The fifth content creation tool on the list is BitMoji
- Unlike the other tools or apps on this list that are geared towards actual content creation, BitMoji is a keyboard that you install on your smartphone.
- It provides joy and helps encourage and facilitate the content creation process. It also serves as artwork that enhances and energizes every part of the procedure.
- When you’re creating content, every bit of whimsy helps.
- There’s a Chrome extension that allows you to access BitMoji on your computer.
[10:00] – The fourth content creation tool on the list is Evernote.
- It is a note-taking app that serves as a “digital bank account,” where you can store little bits of information for you to “withdraw” when you need them.
- All content creators are constantly in search of ideas.
- What Evernote does is to provide as a storage of interesting digital data that can be used for future reference. When the content creator revisits this “bank,” the stored information can serve as additional resources for any content projects, or even inspiration for new ones.
- The Evernote Web Clipper is a browser extension that helps make information-grabbing much easier when you’re on a desktop.
- Evernote and similar apps serve as clipbooks, not really notebooks.
[15:07] – The third content creation tool on the list is InVideo.
- InVideo is a post-production tool, a cloud based video editing package that allows us to take content that we create and quickly create promotional content from it to create little videos that we're going to promote on Twitter or on Instagram, or in Facebook, that that highlight the content that we've created, and share it in a really compelling way.
- The strength of InVideo is in its simplicity and ease of use: it offers a series of templates and licensed clip media, allows you to reformat your content very quickly for the different social media platforms, and ensures that your energy goes into the creative part, not the mechanical part, of making video content.
[18:42] – The second content creation tool on the list is Canva.
- In its early days, Canva was a simple template-based tool that you could use to create social media graphics.
- Now, though, it has evolved, offering new features and resources that are strong enough to make it a high-quality, easy-to-use substitute for other, more complicated editing apps when it comes to creating social media assets.
[24:41] – The top content creation tool on the list is Screenflow.
- Screenflow is a screencasting tool that the team uses to create all of our videos.
- Screencasting is made possible by video editing software that records multiple different streams at a time; as you record your camera and audio, it's also recording what's happening on your computer screen. This is what makes the DottoTech tutorial videos possible.
- Back in the day, such operations cost thousands of dollars and an entire studio crew; now, it’s possible to convey the same amount of information effortlessly with a fairly inexpensive computer, a couple of additional pieces of hardware, and a decent microphone.
I create a lot of content, and I do mean a lot.
Each week we strive to deliver:
- 2 YouTube Videos
- 1 Webinar
- 1 Podcast
- 1 Livestream (for ourselves)
- 1 Livestream we host for a client.
Plus our community content, such as zoom meetings and coaching sessions for our members.
Each and every one of these content pieces need supporting graphics, promo material, social posts etc.
Like I said, a lot of content, and we do it with a team of 3.
These are my top 5 content Creation Tools I use.
