Quarantine has never been easy and this one that we are facing for several months all over the world is not an exception. 

Many businesses had to close or to rethink their business model from mainly offline to mainly online in order to survive. Or allow employees to work from home rather than from the office. And examples can continue.

YouTube comes with a helping hand for the small businesses that have been the most hit by those changes and created and launched a free DIY tool that allows them to create simple videos to promote themselves and let people know how can they either help the business survive now or how it changed. 

YouTube Video Builder

This is the simple name it had been given to the new YouTube tool around.

For the small businesses or the ones that can’t any more film videos around, this tool is gold.

Because even if they don’t have much experience in video editing, the Video Builder will create a video from scratch, using images, texts and logos together with music from the free YouTube audio library.

The video will be 6 up to 15 seconds long and can be customized with colors and fonts. 

How do you use the YouTube Video Builder?

As we already mentioned, the tool is easy to use and all you need is a Google or YouTube account. First, you must fill in a form and the requests will be handled in up to five business days. 

After the request had been accepted, here are the steps you have to follow:
