by | Oct 19, 2020

If you are an online business owner or a digital entrepreneur you know how essential it is to create consistent on-brand content for your brand on social media.

Why is it important to create consistent on-brand social media content?

  • It builds up your brand recognition and loyalty 
  • It grows your online community
  • It helps you convert your followers into clients of your paid services

In this blog post, I share a list of some of the best apps for creating better social media content for your online business. 

Content creation doesn’t need to be complicated so these apps are also pretty intuitive and easy to use!

Create Better Videos Using These Apps:

1. Mojo for animated Instagram stories

I convert over 50% of my clients through Instagram stories alone.

That means the more engaging your stories are, the more you’ll connect with your ideal client that will take the next step of checking out your services and buying from you.

See this example below of an animated story I did on Mojo to promote my newsletter:

Mojo helps you create animated IG stories. You get a ton of free templates to use and if you wanted more freedom, you can get the pro account for $39.99/year!  

Pro tip: I use Mojo to quickly add animations to my in feed IG posts by using their pro feature “Format” to choose the size of my canvas. 

2. Jumprope for creating tutorial videos

If you want to grow a community, you have to start using the power of video!

Videos showcase your personality and help you connect with your audience which builds trust and eventually builds your sales.

If you share tips and how-to’s on any of your social media platforms, you will love Jumprope. It’s a video creation app where you can create easy step-by-step tutorials. 

What I love about Jumprope is the export feature which helps you use one piece of video content across various social media platforms from IG to youtube to Pinterest by exporting your content in the appropriate size for that platform! 

The best part? It is all completely free to use and you can end up getting featured on Google’s web series through the app.

3. InShot for editing videos

Hate spending hours on your computer trying to figure out how to use iMovie or Adobe Premier to edit your IG or Youtube videos? 

I DO!

InShot is an intuitive and easy-to-use video editing app that you can use on your phone. They integrate with GIPHY to add animated stickers to your videos, offer a ton of transitions, and a great library of royalty-free music you can use on your videos!

You can use the app for free but I highly recommend investing the $40 to get access to all the pro features for life!

4. Veed.io for adding subtitles 

Did you know that over 80% of people say they watch videos on mute?!

That means that if you want to increase your video views on Instagram, you need to start adding captions to your video.

Veed.io helps you add automatically generated subtitles to your videos. It is free to use for videos under 50MB. 

5. Teleprompter to help you with creating your script for your videos

If you find yourself forgetting your words as soon as your video camera is turned on, then you will love Teleprompter.

It’s an app that helps you write out scripts or key speaking points that roll out on the screen as you record your videos. 

6. Boosted for creating video intros for youtube 

If you are on Youtube or trying to be on Youtube then you know that intro’s take forever to create!

Boosted makes creating engaging intro’s a breeze with their pre-made video templates.

You can use the free templates they offer or if you want to take it to next level they offer all their pro templates and access to stock video and images for $119.99 for life!

Create Better Graphic Content Using These Apps:

7. Canva Pro for creating Instagram educational posts & memes

Canva is a graphic design platform that is meant for everyone!

It is free and simple to use but I highly recommend getting the pro account for more flexibility, however it is super easy to use by all people even non-designers. They offer pre-made templates for every social platform.

I love their GIPHY integration to create my own brand memes and their pro feature that allow you to instantly remove the background from your images.

All of which helps you create more engaging content for your online brand.

8. Wibbl to animate your text and turn them into gifs

Word of advice: if you can turn any content into motion or video, DO IT! 

It’s much easier to engage people with motion graphics and animations.

Wibbl helps you animate any text (ex: your logo, your brand tag line) or shapes by turning them into GIFs that you can then download and use on your social media content.

9. Bazaart to create images with outlines

This app has a lot of features but my favorite is the ability to create cutout images of yourself and add a fun outline and a shadow to that cutout image.

I made a step-by-step video on how to create your own cutout images with an outline:

10. Meitu for creating custom branded brushes

This will definitely help your content stand-out!

On Meitu you can create your own custom branded brushes (ex: a brush with your brand name) and use that brush to draw over your images. 

Example:

11. Scrl to create continuous image scrolls 

Ever wondered how people on Instagram create carousel images that look connected when you scroll through them?

This is the app that helps you do exactly that!
