12 YouTube Tools to Grow your YouTube Channel in 2019
People come to youtube every single day searching for answers
But the Real Question is
Do you want to be part of the solution?
Do you want to become a creator?
Today is the best opportunity we have ever had to become a creator and start making videos for people all over the world.
I have been making videos on YouTube for just over a year now and here are some of the tools that have helped me create videos, optimize videos and promote my videos and channel to my audience.
Planning Videos I use Evernote and Google Docs
Evernote is the best digital note book I have used. Its like always having a small notebook on you. The great thing is I can use it on my laptop or on my phone. I can clip blog articles I want to read later with the webclipper and I can save important emails right into my notes. The organization within evernote is so cool, you can have different notebooks and then you can use tags on each note so that you can just search for them later. The search function is my favourite because sometimes you don’t remember where you saved a note and what the tags were that you used. No problem evernote searches all the text in every note to find the one you are looking for. There is a free version and you can upgrade to a paid version with added benefits

I use Google docs over microsoft work because it keeps all my work online. So no matter where I am I can log on to anyones computer or phone and access all my work. With me working remotely this is just a treat. Once you move over to google docs you wont go back to microsoft word. Your Google Docs will then sync to your drive while you are working so you never lose any work.
Organization I use Google drive to organize all of my planning and scriping of my videos and blog posts. I also do all of my research and keyword planning with google docs and organize this in folders on Google Drive. The great thing about google drive is I can access it from any device. Even if I don’t have my phone on me I can access my drive from some elses phone or laptop by logging in to my account.
Keyword Research I use VidIQ, Keywords Everywhere, TubeBuddy and MorningFame
VidIQ is my favourite plugin for YouTube because it gives you so much information on the screen that you are on in Youtube. From the keyword research data within youtube search where you can see the search volume and the competition for a specific keyword while you are searching. The individual video information you get when you are watching a video, it shows you the videos velocity, the SEO score and so much more.

TubeBuddy is a great Plugin for YouTube but it can take a while to learn how to use it properly so that you get the most out of it because it has a lot of features. Once you know where they all are and how to use them its such a great tool. My most used feature is in the comments section you can filter your comments by the ones you haven’t replied to, I find this saves so much time for me.
Here is a video going into details all about how to use TubeBuddy
Morning Fame is such a great tool to have because it takes all the data from your videos and organises it into more visual concise graphics that at a glance you can see what you need to know about your videos and your channel. I have only recently started using this tool and only starting to see now how powerful it is, my favourite feature about it is that it tells you if each videos is helping grow your channel or not so you know what kind of videos you should be creating. Here is a video going into more detail on Morning fame.
Video Creation I use Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Audition
I use Premiere pro to edit all of my videos, I use Audition to edit the audio in my videos and then i use lightroom and photoshop to create epic thumbnails that people want to click on so that I get more views. The Adobe tools are expensive since they changes to a monthly subscription but they are the best tools out there and if you are serious about becoming successful on YouTube and you understand how powerful the thumbnails are for your videos then you will start using photoshop to up your thumbnail game. Just by increasing the quality of your Thumbnails you can drastically increase the click through rate on your videos and increase your views which will help you get more watch time.
I use Convertkit for all my emails letting my subscribers know when i have released a new video and where they can find it. I also send them updates when I have free guides to giveaway. This is the foundation of building a good business and Convertkit is the tool that I have found is the easiest to use.
