Best YouTube Marketing Tools you need to know about in 2018.
1. TubeBuddy (FREE version) :-
The interface of TubeBuddy can a be bit confusing at first. Make sure to watch Videos on YouTube after installing the Extension.
It’ll help you to get the maximum out of your TubeBuddy extension.
2. VidIQ (FREE version) :-
1. Lumen5 (FREE deal for 1 Year) :-
If you’re a Blogger or a Business, Lumen5 is the best video solution for you. Lumen5 can create Videos instantly based on Text.
On top of that, AppSumo is giving 1 Year Free Lumen5 subscription for FREE. You can create Unlimited Videos from your Blog Post, Articles, Other’s Articles, etc.
2. Smartphone :-
Any Smartphone that has launched in 2018 have the capability to shoot videos in Full HD (720p). Some of them (including mine) can shoot 4K videos (1080p).
But, I won’t recommend you to shoot in 4K if the script of your video doesn’t really demand it.
If you shoot on 4K it’ll be very difficult for you to edit the videos in most cases. If your Laptop/desktop computer doesn’t comes with enough RAM to handle the video rendering, you won’t be able to edit the videos.
1. BuzzSumo (FREE search on HomePage)
Although, BuzzSumo looks like a FREE tool on its Homepage.
It isn’t made to serve the Freemium Model.
But, if you know the trick, BuzzSumo is one of the best YouTube marketing tools for Promoting your Videos on Social Media.
BuzzSumo shows you those Social Media accounts who had shared your competitors Video. Wicked!
How is it beneficial? Simply approach these users and let them know about your Video.
It is a no-brainer that if a person likes a video and you have a similar video, he/she will also like your video ( if it is better or at-par in comparison to your competitors video ).
2. Ninja Outreach ( FREE Trial + better than BuzzSumo )
Ninja Outreach is way better than BuzzSumo when you check the pricing.
Ninja Outreach also comes with a FREE Trial. My recommendation would be Ninja Outreach over BuzzSumo if you’re going to pay.
Even if you don’t pay, Ninja Outreach gives you FREE Trial which BuzzSumo doesn’t gives you.

3. Clearbit Connect for GMail (FREE) :-
Would you believe if I told you that you can send emails to any Viral News Website to promote your Video?
Well you should because Clearbit Connect is an awesome Chrome Extension. It helps you to collect Email Ids of any Website at the click of a button from inside your Gmail.
WOW! You can search for 100 Email Ids per Month in the FREE plan which is enough for a Newbie YouTuber under 1000 Subscribers.
1. YouTube Studio Beta (FREE) :-
No, not the “YouTube Studio”, the “YouTube Studio Beta”.
Most YouTubers are comfortable using the old version of YouTube studio. But, do you know that YouTube is almost ready to shut down the YouTube Studio.
They are planning to replace it with the new YouTube Studio Beta version. Why? Because it is more awesome features. One of the best feature to look forward to is the Click Through Rate or CTR section.
I spoke more about the CTR in another Article. Read it Here :- Tips for Starting a YouTube Channel (2018) with PDF Cheat Sheet
2. SocialBlade (FREE) :-
Nobody knows the Future of your channel, except for SocialBlade.
The intelligent algorithms of SocialBlade uses Data Analytics to predict the Past, Present and Future of your Channel.
Although, the Future Projections at SocialBlade is based only upon the past data. Which means, it will change anytime as soon as you upload your next viral video.

2. BuzzSumo (PAID version)
Hence, you might want to try the Paid Version of BuzzSumo if you’re a Business or Enterprise.In my Opinion, BuzzSumo PAID is not for Solo YouTube Creator.Rather try the alternative :- Ninja Outreach
3. Ninja Outreach (PAID version)
Social Media Outreach on Steroids = Ninja Outreach. Where on one hand, BuzzSumo Plans starts with Pro at $99/month.Ninja Outreach serves the YouTube Solo Creator audience at $69 per month. The plan is named Blogger but it works for Vloggers too, trust me.

TubeBuddy and VidIQ, both are extremely powerful tools. I’ve personally recommended them for Beginner and Intermediate YouTube Creators.

1. Videolicious :-
Videolicious is for you if you’re a Business or an Enterprise. It is really not for Solo YouTube Creators.
