In the modern world every business is interested in getting their videos on YouTube or the like, but they don’t seem to realize it takes more than a camera to create a decent video. The editing process can be time consuming, editing software can be expensive, and the learning curve for editing can be more than expected. Simply figuring out transitions can be a pain.
YouTubeEditing.com offers a service to edit your raw footage into finished material for you. You upload your raw video to their servers, give them instructions, and then in 3 days you get back a finished video.
Obviously you’re not going to get back something that looks like a professional TV show, but if you’re looking to share product demonstrations, safety/ orientation videos or the like this may be a very good option. Pricing is between $59 – $99 per video. Being that video editing can be a 2-3 hour process the price is even competitive with simply paying an employee hourly to do the work.
If you want to be a professional content creator on YouTube the price is too high, but if you just plan to do 1-20 videos this may be a very good option. Beyond that if you are a consultant you could reasonably subcontract the editing work at this price and then turn around and bill $200 to the client… I know that when I used an Austin area video production, it costed me about that much.
I have not used the service, but the idea is sound, and editing work is “easy” if it’s what you do 40 hours a week so I have to imagine you’ll get back a good product.
