Some time back I found this service called Animoto. It is the evolution of slide shows into actual video. I tired to keep it a secret, but really this is something everyone should know about. Here are a couple of videos I put together a year ago:
Unless you’ve been under a rock, you should know that businesses of any size should be conducting video marketing. YouTube is one of the top “search engines” that you can be placing content into.
You can create some videos using nice little cameras like the Flip or my personal favorite the Kodak Zi8, which I chose because of the external microphone jack. I recommend creating a series of videos using Mike Koenigs 10-10-4 method, but if you need to throw a quick promo together showing images of your service or product, I recommend checking out Animoto.
I put one together real quick for my client Arrowhead Construction, Inc. You can check it below. It took me about 3 minutes to put it together and a few minutes for it to be rendered. You will notice that the video is short and that it includes Animoto’s labeling. You can also purchase credits to create longer videos and if you would like to have white labeling, you can purchase a business license.
Check it out and let me know if you try it out and post links to your vids.
