Tools for PowerPoint Videos
The PowerPoint software itself is certainly a nice video creation tool but…when it comes to making great videos quickly and easily:
You’re gonna want some stuff!
By that we mean: “Assets” like Graphics, Fonts, Resources, etc. and also more intangible things like ideas, strategies, tactics, and trends.
In this section, we’ll show you what we use to make our video creation lives easier & faster AND how we do it.
The first one is EASY! It’s our TOP PowerPoint Resource by far: PresenterMedia
Templates, clipart, video clips, video backgrounds, customizable images…new content every week or so all for the bargain price of about $50 a year. You’ll see us use it everyday and, excuse us if we rave on it in the tutorials below, but we love it THAT much.

In this section, we’ll weed through all that garbage and cherry-pick things that we find that are actually good!
