Well we’ve got a new toy at Team MMSpark Virtual HQ, called Animoto. So, while I’ve been making training videos for my VA (virtual assistant) I thought I’d make a quick one for you. Let me show you how quick and easy it is to create videos from your blog posts. And eye-catching, search engine and social media friendly videos at that!

Watch the video below as I show you how to create a video in a few minutes

Here are the basic steps to create videos from your blog posts:

#1 Choose a blog post (“list” or “steps” posts work really well)

SIGN UP FOR ANIMOTO (there is a free or paid version)

#2 Choose your background (white on black, or black on white)

#3 Pick your video style

#4 Upload your logo/branding (these will show as the intro/outro slides)

#5 Choose your music (from the free music library)

#6 Start uploading your content

Text – Enter your text (hint: use your blog post headings for great bullet points)

Images – break up the text with some eye-catching images

#7 Preview your video, and tweak until you’re happy with it

#8 Click and drag to change the order of the images and text

#9 “Produce” your video

#10 Use the automated links to share on social media, YouTube, your website etc!

I’d love to know how you get on, and if you think this is as much fun as I do. Share a link to your video on the MMSpark Facebook page and we’ll give you some video “love”!
