One of the biggest trends in content creation right now is video. Video content is more popular than ever, from Reels on Instagram to TikTok and YouTube Shorts. However, not everyone has the time or resources to create professional videos from scratch. That’s where CapCut comes in. CapCut is a mobile editing app that provides the tools you need to create compelling video content quickly and easily.
You can use CapCut to trim, splice, and rearrange your videos and add text, music, and other effects. It’s a great way to quickly give your videos a professional edge without learning complicated editing software. It also offers pre-existing templates that business owners can plug their videos into to create amazing content in no time.
Agency 8 uses CapCut to edit videos for our social media management clients. Avery loves using the editing features such as transitions, filters, and templates to create great content for her clients. Additionally, Avery does all of this with the free version of CapCut, so there’s no need to upgrade to premium to get access to all the amazing features!

If you’ve ever created graphics online, chances are you’ve heard of Canva. Canva is an incredibly versatile graphic design app offering many templates, photos, and graphics. Canva is available on both mobile and desktop. We always use Canva for our designs for ourselves and our clients. The best part? It’s free! While the free version of Canva offers tons of functionality, they also offer a premium account for even more options. The premium account offers additional photos, graphics, and templates.
If you’re short on time, Canva also allows you to batch-create content. Batch-creating content means creating a bunch of pieces of content all at once, and it’s an absolute game changer for business owners that are low on time but know they need to produce content.
