How To Make Youtube Channel Intro For Free

These are small tutorials for the people who wants to open their Youtube channel and often struggle with Intros and outros. These are very simple tricks and the difficulty level would be easy. Hope my readers will like it. I am going to tell you only about Intros but you can do it for Outros too

Note – I am putting this title as Free because you can use some free editors like movie makers too instead of paid software called Filmora, Trick one and trick two can be done totally free while in trick two you need Filmora, no other free software can do it, so majority wins

Trick 1 – Create Intro Video From Powerpoint

Step 1 – Go to Google and search “intro video Powerpoint template free” without quote. you will find several PPT there in 1st page, for example I choose –

Step 2 – Download PPT and open it

download PPT

Step 3 – In this template you need to change the text, I changed mine as “Arbab Usmani – Digital Marketing Expert“, also delete extra slides

edit text

Step 4 – Click Save as

save as template

click save as type and select MPEG – 4 Videosave as video

Step 5 – Now we will add audio, you can use either royalty free audio or inbuilt audio of the editor you are going to use, here we are going to use ‘ Wondershare Filmora ‘, It is very cheap and you can buy it for only 49$$ for lifetime, Free edition will leave a bookmark or if you don’t want to buy it use Windows Movie Maker, the process will be the same. launch Filmora and choose full feature mode

But since this is a tutorial for youtubers then I expect them to have a paid editing software liike Filmora or Camtasia

  1. This is great article but i want to add some thing Intros Are Very Important for any YouTube channel. but many people think its a waste of time to put intros in videos. but thats totally a wrong concept. intros make your videos more engaging and attractive and it is of course the first thing people see. so put your time and hard work in making great intros. 🙂
