Last week I made the case that curating video clips is an incredible way to further your thought leadership. Video clips help you:

Today, I’m going to give you a super power.
I’m going to show you just how easy it is to edit video clips in minutes with almost no training. With today’s software tools, editing video is equivalent to editing an article in Google Docs or Microsoft Word.
With the skills you learn today, any time you come across an interesting video clip on YouTube, you’ll be able to download it, edit it, and publish it on your social media account within 15 minutes.
Overview of what we’ll cover in the tutorial
Pick the right video editing tool for you
Grab videos from YouTube with one click
Edit video by editing text (just like you would in Google Docs)
Quickly change aspect ratios for different social media platforms (portrait, landscape, square)
Add background music to boost engagement (including where to find license-free audio tracks)
Add subtitles so people can watch without sound (in any language)
Use keyboard shortcuts to edit even faster
