Check out Animoto.com for some quick and fun video creation! A very special "Thank you!" to Mary Lyn Miller, founder of Fired Up For Success Coaching who mentioned this to me during her coaching session. I love it.
You can setup a free account to create unlimited 30 second videos or upgrade to a personal or business account. The free account is helpful for testing out the service and for family video shorts. I am launching a family blog and these "shorts" are perfect, so my children and I will probably keep a personal account. AND for my business, I'm researching their commercial level for creating Call-to-Action videos!
They have music, pictures, videos and most importantly, an easy-to-use interface. The interface guided me to chose clips from a video I created for my twins from over 3 years ago. Then I added a splash of text and pushed a button. Amazing!
NO TECHNICAL EXPERTISE IS REQUIRED -- SERIOUSLY.
Oh and I did it in less than 20 minutes - from account creation to first finished video. And they host the video and make it super easy for you to post to your blog or website, promote it on your social marketing sites - and more...
