Content marketing practices began gaining traction somewhere in the 19th century. Today, with evolving technology and new ideas, content marketing is at an all-time high.  And needless to say, video marketing is stealthily stealing the spotlight to emerge as the most loved medium for marketing.

Customer demands are changing and how. An interesting survey by HubSpot titled, ‘The state of video marketing in 2019’ suggested that nearly 87% of customers want to see video content from various brands. Hence, in order to meet the growing demand small businesses are quickly switching to producing more and more videos to appeal their audience. And why not? It’s easy and can be shot, edited and published on your smart phone itself! The only tricky part is editing and to ease that problem for you, here is a list of top 8 video editing apps that are well supported on your smartphones and can be easily mastered by even an amateur.
