YouTube launches free app to help small businesses create video ads

Posted at 7:59 AM, Jun 16, 2016

YouTube is trying to make it easier for small businesses to get their name out there with a new app.

It's called the YouTube Director for Business app. 

The mission of the app is to help users create a video ad for their business in minutes. You just have to use your phone.

Users have the option to choose a video template to start. From short and sweet to all about your business  to getting personal, descriptions for each selection will point you to the right kind of video for your business.

The app then shows you what to record for each shot. At a loss for words? There are suggestions for that, too.

In some templates, the app will even show you how to frame an interviewee. 

Once you're done with all of the shots, you can edit it to music and publish it right to YouTube. 

The app is now available for the iPhone. Check it out here.
