We’re all just trying to get YouTube famous—aren’t we? While we may not all have 10K+ followers on this popular platform, as creators we have to produce content that stands out from the rest. Adding a logo reveal, sound effects, smooth transitions, special visual effects, or an intro and outro using Adobe After Effects will give your videos some extra flare—and will help you make it onto that elusive trending list.

We’ve put together a quick YouTube Starter Kit packed with video, audio and After Effects templates that’ll garner you some more likes and subscribes on your next YouTube video.

Get Loud

Have you ever watched a viral video that hasn’t had a great soundtrack or utilized sound effects? No. If you want to make some noise on YouTube, no matter what type of video you are producing, sound plays a big part in helping viewers remember your video. Add some background music or quirky stock sound effects to put some extra pow into your next video.
