This post will be to all the tools to assist you with Video Marketing.
With the new search indexes and Google’s purchase of You Tube, video has become an important medium and almost a “must have” marketing tool. Most VAs shy away from this great service because they have little technical talent and just think this will be too hard and too expensive. The fact is there are some GREAT tools that just got released to make video marketing easier than ever.
VideoMakerFX- This is one of the easiest tools out there to make whiteboard and animated videos. This program has a lot of templates that you can use. Simply pick one and change the text and you are done! ANYONE can do this. If you want to see more on this great new and CHEAP ( only $67.00) software- click here. Also make sure you note that if you plan on selling the videos to your clients. you will need to upgrade to the Developer’s license.
Easy Sketch Pro: This is another great program for making hand drawn videos in a flash. The cost is very affordable, only $39.00. It will take a little longer to learn than the VideoMakerFX, however it will provide a great video foundation to help you market your product or service. There are great tutorials and adds for this program to help you make the most of this program. Also make sure you note that if you plan on selling the videos to your clients. you will need to upgrade to the Developer’s license.
PowToon: This a monthly or yearly membership program. It is another quick and easy way to create animated videos similar to the VideoMaker FX. It also offers extensive training and a wide variety of templates to use for your videos. Prices start at $19.00 a month but you need to pay for the the year in advance.
