The quickest and the most efficient way to market your content is through visuals! With the attention span of people plummeting with every passing day, video content marketing is a pretty safe bet, if you ask me. I’ve capitalized on the power of visual content by incorporating tutorials in the recent posts on my blog. But the whole process of compiling and editing a video can be tiresome if you’re not an expert video editor and want it to be error free.
At times like these, you turn your attention to video creating apps and one such app that has come in handy for me is Quik, which I am reviewing in this article.

For my Kochi workshop I used Dashing, for Mumbai I used Action and for Chennai I used the theme of Toss. I also added font and changed the sequence of the photos. You can also remove the last ‘Quik story’ slide if you want to and add highlights to your video once it’s done with. I also set the duration of my videos.
