Slideshow Video Maker - PresenterVid Express
What is a slideshow video and why should your business use them?
Now, I’m not sure what your feelings are about using video in general. Maybe you embrace video marketing fully, maybe a little bit, or perhaps not at all. But wherever you are in that spectrum, it’s worth checking whether you have symptoms that indicate your video marketing needs some attention.
- For example, are your leads drying up?
- Do your competitors seem to be getting more business, or more social media attention or more press activity?
- Are your ad costs rising along with your costs per lead?
- Are customers sometimes frustrated with their experience at your business, whether its online or in a brick and mortar store?
If you said “yes” to any of those, a lack of video content could be a significant factor.
Allow me to explain.
I’m Andre Palko, founder of the Small Business Rainmaker, and in this article, I explain why brief slideshow videos are so important. Then I’ll show you a simple way to create your own presentation style videos for use on your website or social media channels.
If you prefer, you can simply watch the video below. It includes all details on slideshow video marketing plus a short video demo of our online slideshow video maker app. (If you want to skip right to the demo, go to 6:45 in the video just below.)
Why Use Video Marketing for Your Business?
According to a video marketing study from Wyzowl, in 2017 63% of businesses were using video in their marketing. By 2019, that increased to 87%.
In addition, 87% of consumers say they want to see more video from companies.
Not only that, video is the preferred method for learning about new products and services. 68% of consumers say that short video is best vs. only 15% who prefer text or other graphic and written forms.
A little over a third, about 38% also said they want more explainer videos from brands to understand products and services better.
And according to MarketingSherpa, videos get up to 300% more traffic than text-based content.
So it’s easy to see that if your video content is lacking, your customers might become frustrated. These days, they expect to see video answers to common questions, they expect to see video demonstrations of pretty much every product and service imaginable.
So, if you don’t have those video answers, they turn to the next company that does.
Never fear. It doesn’t take much to get started with video, and I’m going to show you how that’s possible.
One way is to use short presentation videos like the examples you can see further down this page.
How to Use Slideshow Videos
I’m sure most of you are familiar with conventional PowerPoint presentations. And you’ve probably been put to sleep by more than one.
But years ago, people began to spice them up with images and interesting graphics. And in the same way that images brought life to boring presentations, animation can turn an interesting image presentation into a compelling video.
And that’s what you can create with PresenterVid Express. It’s an online slideshow video creator that anyone can use. If you’d like to skip right to the demo to see how it works, go to 6:45 in the demo video above.
But before we get to that, exactly what kind of presentation videos should you be making, or could you be making?
Here are a few quick examples of how you can use slideshow videos in your business:
- One way is to introduce your business. Make it something of a video business card.
- You can introduce a new product.
- You can feature all your current products.
- You can do a short video of each benefit or feature of every product.
- If you have a brick and mortar store, you can talk about your location or your neighborhood. There’s probably lots of interesting stories to tell there.
- You can introduce your employees, one at a time per video.
- You can introduce a new service.
- You can answer FAQs.
- You can offer quick tips that help your customer solve their problems.
So that’s just a short list right off the top of my head but it’s enough to keep you busy making videos for months.
Now you might be thinking that you don’t have time to shoot and edit video.
And that producing video from scratch is complex and costly.
But I’m going to show you how to create videos without having to do any filming or videography and without needing any video editing skills.
How to Use an Online Slideshow Video Creator
Now you are right that up until recently, you would need skilled help, or you’d have to outsource the work if you wanted to participate in any kind of extensive video marketing. And those kind of video production costs can add up quickly.
With our slideshow video app, PresenterVid Express, you or anyone on your staff can create professional video slideshows. And we make that possible with ready-made templates and a simple online slideshow video editor.
- Our customizable templates are as easy to use as posting to social media and they help you maintain brand consistency by adding your own images, graphics, logos and colors.
- You can select from our assortment of music tracks. Or add your own music or narration track.
- Our video slideshow software is fully cloud based so you don't have to worry about software installation or updates.
- And as I already mentioned, you don’t need any tech skills. If you or your staff can use a smart phone or computer, you can create slideshow videos.
- Also, if you’re just starting out with video, you don’t need any of your own graphics, photos, images or videos to work with. Our vertical video creator has a built-in integration with Pixabay and Unsplash that allows you to select from millions of public domain images. In minutes you’ll be creating as many videos as you need.
- Also, unlike nearly all other video maker platforms, there are no limits to how many videos you can create with our PresenterVid Express.
All videos export in a high resolution 1920 x 1080 pixel format, which makes them perfectly suitable for posting on video hosting platforms, on your website, and on all social media channels.
Who Uses This Style of Presentation Videos?
Slideshow videos are in use by nearly everyone who uses video. Advertisers, bloggers, influencers, and pretty much nearly any kind of local business you can think of, either B2C or B2B.
The reason is that slideshow videos generate leads, promote products, help with customer service and increase social media engagement.
So, is our presentation video maker for everyone?
Well, if you’re an experienced do-it-yourself video creator, you probably have some kind of high-end software like Adobe Premiere to work with. So, you wouldn’t need this.
Or if you’re looking for an advanced video creator, with all the editing bells and whistles, then this is not for you.
Even so, if you already have software but you’re struggling to scale your video production, our entry-level apps can help you deliver a much higher volume in less time than it takes with Premiere or other apps. Think of it as an extra tool to help you get ahead. Just let your assistant carry out all the simple overload work.
However, for business owners and managers who want to get started with producing high-quality videos, and get started as soon as today, PresenterVid Express is a solid, professional, entry-level slideshow video platform.
