Cool Tool to Make Professional Videos in 10 Minutes

Written by George Manty  · June 14, 2009

I’ve received some comments and questions about the video on our new website promotion and design site. My wife created the whole video in less than 15 minutes using an awesome membership software called Animoto.

Here are the steps she used:

1. Come up with a sales message.
2. Sign up for Animoto. (Sign up for their 90 day trial if you only want to make one video, but for most of us the year long membership is probably the better deal.)
3. Go buy a few pictures from istockphoto. The small size pictures are fine, so plan to spend about $1 per picture. (Animoto does offer some free pictures for your use, but we wanted to find pictures that were exactly what we wanted.)
4. Put text and pictures in order using Animoto’s easy interface.
5. Let Animoto do the work of making your video look like it was created by a Pro.
6. Remix if you want to see other possibilities.
7. Use Animoto’s easy tool to post the video to YouTube, your blog, your website— wherever you need to impress people and get their attention.

Animoto is so easy, my 10 year old son used it to make a couple of funny videos.

The first he made using pictures of our fence damage from Hurricane Ike:

In the second one he used some of the free photos from animoto:

Can you tell he has learned something about marketing already?

If you sign up for Animoto through my affiliate link, I’ll answer three questions about Animoto through email if you have any trouble with it. Frankly, I don’t think you will since it’s so easy to use.
