When I create videos, I do not use all of these free tools because I already have some paid tools. In step #2, I definitely learned about some new places to get royalty-free images. I already knew about Pexels but did not know about Unsplash and Stock Up. I would also check out Pixabay. Always check the terms of use of a picture before you use it.

Step #3 states to create your slideshow in Google Slides which is free. If you have Microsoft Office, you can also use PowerPoint. If you are a MAC person, then you can use KeyNote.

Step #4 shows you how to convert your slideshow into a video file using a free tool on the web that converts it to a MP4. If you are using PowerPoint, then you can do this right from PowerPoint. I use Camtasia to record my PowerPoint slides.

Step #5 shows you how you can add royalty free music to your video using free video editing software. Once again, I would use Camtasia since I already have it. However, this article listed 2 royalty-free music sites that were new to me. I have never heard of Bensound nor HookSounds.

Lastly, this article tells you to upload your video to social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn. You should also share on Twitter and Medium. As you can see, you can create this type of content even if you don’t have a lot of paid tools. Try this out and leave me a comment with a link to your video.
