  • Samanta Blumberg

ByteDance's popular video editing software CapCut, is stepping into another promising territory: the world of business. After dominating the consumer side with an impressive reach of 490 million iOS and Android users globally, CapCut is unveiling a new powerful subset targeting brands and marketers named - CapCut for Business. This move will help capitalize on the app's wide acceptance, creative tools, AI-powered filters, and effects and leverage its seamless integration with TikTok to cater to businesses of all sizes.

Emerging as a true game-changer, CapCut for Business prioritizes tools for marketers, brands, small companies, and creators who wish to create high-quality ads and branded content. The key highlight of this suite is an innovative AI-powered script generation tool that crafts engaging script ideas from a basic product or business description. Additionally, it allows for the transformation of product or landing page URLs into captivating videos, echoing ByteDance's commitment to leveraging AI to ease business operations even further.

The resourcefulness of AI in CapCut for Business doesn't end there. The platform will offer AI-generated presenters to demonstrate products in explainer videos and demos. Capitalizing on the burgeoning e-commerce sector, it also features a virtual try-on tool, allowing customers to virtually sample products and generate showcasing photos, which is particularly beneficial for apparel businesses.

In contrast to the consumer-targeted version, CapCut for Business emphasizes collaboration. It means teams, agencies, and creators can work on ads together, enabling members to edit, review, add notes, or access, boosting work dynamics and productivity. Although these tools are invaluable for crafting product video advertisements, they're equally useful for creating organic content, elevating a brand's influencer account, or shaping a business's online presence.

With CapCut for Business, ByteDance sets new standards by blurring the lines between professional and consumer video editing. Initially launched in 2019, within four years, it has outperformed rivals to become the highest-earning video editing app, accumulating a staggering $50 million in the first half of 2023 alone. With this enormous leap into business tools, ByteDance is hoping to replicate or even surpass this success, radically transforming how businesses approach video marketing and creation in the era of omnipresent social media.
