Earn Cash Online – Offer Video Creation And Editing Services

Videos are a hot commodity right now, but not everyone knows how to make them, let alone edit them. This is where you could offer a video creation or editing service.

Video Creation Service

Using free tools found online, you can quickly learn how to combine text, pictures, and audio, and turn those elements into a video for online customers.

Here’s a shortlist of free online tools that you can use to get started:

Audacity for audio files
Camstudio for creating videos for presentation software similar to PowerPoint
Jing for creating screen captures
Video Editing Services
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned professional, you can easily sell your services to edit videos.

If you’re a total newbie at this, you will find hundreds of tutorials online, both written and as videos showing you how to edit a video.

It will not take you very long to understand how everything works. It will take you an even shorter amount of time as you get better at this task.

To edit videos for clients, these are the components that you will ask your customer to provide to you:

1. A script. The words that will go on each slide within the video presentation. The goal is 10 words or less for each slide; the simpler the better is what creates an effective message.

2. A musical loop in an MP3 format. You can purchase musical loops (a short instrumental or musical song) by category and have them shipped to you on CD, or you can download the loops to your computer.

If the customer is not providing a musical loop, then you will choose the musical track that will go along with the video presentation.

3. Sometimes the customer will provide a voiceover, which is an audio file that you will need to add to the video.

The audio formats vary depending upon how they were recorded and saved.

Make sure you understand which files you will be able to work with according to the free software that you downloaded from the Internet.

In summary, using free tools that you can find online, you can learn how to create and edit videos for customers.

How To Monetize

You can sell these services to individual business owners by approaching them through e-mail or their website.

You can advertise your work for hire services in any of the online forums, and you may even offer your services to webmasters as an add-on bonus perk for their customers.

You can even start a video creation or editing gig on or register yourself as a video creator and editor on

The video creation and editing market is wide open right now, and serious cash is ready to be made.

    I certainly agree with you about video. We are visual by nature well at least most of us are. I had not thought about people training themselves up in this skill then selling it. I pondered about this then realised there are many local clients who want video but have no idea where to start. Do you think local markets are a good place to start for someone setting up their video creation business?

    I have had some experience with fiverr both good and not so good but the way they operate is really clear and a good way to get clients with new boundaries on location. Thanks for sharing , clear and uncluttered. Could you add some example videos? Just a thought.

    I totally agree that video editing services are a hot commodity! I struggle with video editing myself and it is something that I have personally purchased before. There are lots of places to market your services such as Fiverr, SEOClerks and other online market places. With a little bit of learning and some practice this will be a great way to earn money online.

    Thank you for this post. You listed all the free tools to start with. This is great. No need for an initial investment.

    I don’t like Upwork. But I am a fan of Fiverr. You give me a good idea to start with on Fiverr. I am interested in video creation and editing.

    It would be nice if you listed some good resources to learn more and improve my skills? Maybe some free resources.

    I need to learn more about video creation and editing and improve my skills to work as a professional.

    I have been wanting to start making videos to promote and compliment my content blogs. This is great to find that there are free tutorials and that you have compiled a list of websites where one can get started. 

    To then offer video editting and video creation to others and earn money that way, is a great idea. Thank you for some great tips to help me get started.
