Mistake#6: Shying Away from the Camera. While it is not a mistake to be camera shy, most people believe that they have to be in front of a camera to create a video. With today’s variety of online tools, this is far from the truth. There are many free online video tools that allow you to create amazing videos without actually being on camera. Here are some of my favourites:
Photo Slideshow Online Tools:
a. Animoto.com & OneTrueMedia.com: Easily turn your photos and video clips into a professional online marketing video. Just upload your images and short video clips, enter some text, and choose the music from their large library and the rest is taken care of for you.

b. Screenr.com: Create instant screencasts, which is basically a video capture of your screen.

The best part about these online tools is that they all provide you with some HTML code that you can simply copy and paste into your website where you want the videos to appear.

c. KillerSalesVideos.com: Combine animated text with powerful music in a movie trailer style of video and you get a Killer Sales Video. Check out a sample below and you’ll be blown away, it really captures your attention. It’s so simple too. All you need to do is choose a video template you like, fill out a simple form that indicating the text and images you want to appear in the video (choose a picture of yourself to add the human factor), and in 24 hours you will receive a professional-looking movie that you can upload to YouTube or embed on your private site, blog, or squeeze page. And the best part is that it costs under $100…that’s unreal!
