Tools that I Use and Recommend

This page contains the products and software that I use in my daily life. Some of those are paid but have made my life super easy as a content creator and blogger.

Screen recording

Screencast-O-Matic

I have been using Screencast-O-Matic for over three years. It’s a great handy tool if you want to record your screen and yourself. The premium version has a video that is not multi-track, but it makes editing super easy.

Although Screencast-O-Matic does the job for my website, for the YouTube channel, I need something big that Premiere Pro supports.

You can try Final Cut Pro, DaVinci Resolve, HitFilm, Corel VideoStudio, Camtasia, and other open-source programs, but none comes close to Premiere Pro when it comes to editing, color grading, audio enhancing, and captioning.

Premiere Pro’s pricing nature makes it difficult for new YouTubers. This is where DaVinci Resolve comes into play.

DaVinci Resolve is a direct competitor of Premiere Pro and offers most of the features.


Writing assistant

Grammarly

English is my second language, but Grammarly helped me fix simple to complex grammatical errors in the early stages of my journey.

I started with Grammarly free, and when I was able to afford it, I did not think twice.

It’s a great tool to have if you are into blogging or content creation because, trust me, good content goes a long way.


Hosting

Cloudways

My website is hosted on DigitalOcean, but I’m a developer, so it was easy for me to deploy a WordPress application.

But, the process is complex for bloggers and YouTubers.

This is where Cloudways make this job super easy. Cloudways is just a management platform that allows you to host your website on DigitalOcean, AWS, and Google Cloud without worrying about deployments, WordPress installations, backups, and SSL.


Designing

Another great tool that I recommend is Canva. Canva has led me to write over ten articles just on this app.

If you navigate my website, you will find the featured images and pricing images created in Canva.

I also use Canva for quick videos for my YouTube channel.

If visual designing is part of your game, Canva should be on the top of the list.
