2024's Best AI-Powered Video Tools for Entrepreneurs

Owning and running a business isn’t easy-peasy. You have to put in the work of planning, strategizing, and creating content to promote your product or service. It would take you countless hours, days, months, or even years to come up with something.

That’s in 2010.

Technology and modernization have come a long way. Because now you can build and grow your own business from scratch and have the ability to promote your product or service even without a marketing team by your side or a huge amount of funding in your hands.

There’s Facebook, Instagram, X (Twitter), TikTok, LinkedIn, YouTube, and a lot of digital and AI tools to use and start with, and most of them are free.

It’s no secret.

I know a lot of people who started from nothing, people who have no degree in business, finance, or even marketing but manage to be at the top of their game and now establish themselves as great solopreneurs and entrepreneurs dominating the digital industry while building and growing their businesses.

But how did they manage to do it, Brian?

And what tools and strategies are they using?

Glad you ask.

You see, visual contents like UGC and short and long-form video contents like TikTok, YouTube Shorts, Facebook, and Instagram Reels are becoming a huge trend, not only for entertainment purposes but in marketing in general.

People love to watch this kind of content and even spend hours on those platforms. And that’s what these guys are doing—making content for people to watch.

The market is there.

Here comes the problem. Not all of us (including me) are great at technology and creating video contents from scratch with animations, transitions, and visual effects that can attract and get the attention and, most importantly, interest of people who are watching or are going to watch the content you’ll be making.

Here comes the solution—AI-powered video creation tools.

And today I’ll be sharing with you the top and latest AI-powered video creation tools in the market that most of these creators slash entrepreneurs, are capitalizing on to make content creation a breeze.

I've personally tried each of these options and found something to like in all of them. Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to try Sora since it's not yet publicly available, but based on the information out there, it definitely seems promising!
