Our Favorite Video Tools

We've tried them all. Here are my favorites.

Last week we looked at why you would want to use a video intro and sometimes why you wouldn’t.

If you missed that video, you can catch up to it here at last week’s blog post.

Today, as promised, we’ll take apart the intro you see here each week and see just how easy it is to put back together again. I’ll just bet you get some great ideas for you own intros simply by watching this quick tutorial.

      Steve, this was really helpful. Thanks!

      What video software do you recommend for someone like me who is moderately tech-savvy but not advanced? And what is the range of prices we’re talking about?

      Thanks so much for your help!

            You’ll need an editing program at the very least. A basic version of Camtasia will do for about $100. A basic version of Pinnacle would run about $50. Then just look for “Free backgrounds” on Google and you’re on your way.

      Thanks Steve! As usual you read my mind — how and why to make a compelling intro and outro is exactly what I’ve been wondering about.

      You over-delivered again! As always.
      Thanks,
