In some of my recent newsletters I briefly introduced my members to Animoto, an online movie maker that can be used for free. I felt it was time to make a more complete presentation.
It's no secret, videos are everywhere, and video marketing is something you just can't ignore nowadays. But let's take a look at the situation of the average Joe:
He's not into the movie making business.
He' no computer geek.
Creating a video for YouTube, other than personal footage taken from his webcam, is a challenge to him.
And yet when it comes to online marketing he has to compete with videos made by professionals that look just like a commercial you would see on TV... So what can he do?
The answer: Animoto. Here is an example made in about 10 minutes. The process, described below, is incredibly simple: a 6 years old could do it!
Even if you're no video specialist you can do a professional-looking video to promote your business.
1: choose a style (background)
2: preview your style
3: choose a music
4: add pictures and videos
5: add your texts
6: Arrange all your elements in the right order
It doesn't get any easier than this... Once you're done just click the "Produce video" button and that's it! So now tell me, do you still think Joe can't do it?
There's even better news: they offer a free option! Granted it's quite limited but you will be able to make 30 seconds movies that will look better than any amateur slide-show. Remember we're talking about promoting your business here...
