How to Make a Professional Online Video using a Photo Slideshow Software called Animoto
As you have learned from my 7 FREE videos on online video marketing with YouTube it is important to add online video to your marketing strategy. Online video can come in many shapes and forms, it doesn’t always have to be You in front of the camera. One effective way to promote your products or services is to make a photo slideshow and place it on your website. Animoto is a powerful photo slideshow software that allows you to do this with ease. The two videos below (click on the arrow pointing to the right inside the video box to jump to the next video) will first walk you through the steps of how to create your first photo slideshow and then will show you the final product.
Benefits to using Animoto
There are so many photo slideshow software out there, but the following features are what makes Animoto so special for me:
