Maximize your Video Editing Software

When you create a new product there is always a niggling doubt..

Even though you may have told some folks your idea & done a little research to validate it, until you get the Product out there for sale with a Buy Button attached you'll never know if it will fly.

So I am super pleased that my Square Video Wrappers is a hit!

I think one reason is that it is NOT software or an App .. which often at lower price points can be buggy or limit you with Video length or number of downloads or have long render times.

Jumping between lots of software tools is a pain as well.

My product enables you to GET MORE from the Video Editor you already own.

TIP: Creating something to sell online? ... help folks MAXIMIZE what they already own!

Folks who have never found me before online are jumping in .. simply via my Facebook Video Ad and my offer, where of course I use my Square Video Wrappers in the Ad.

 BOOM!

These are stats from just one of my Video Ads.

I mention this because my Ad (it's...

Motion Graphics for Video UPDATE!

First up .. due to several requests I have now enabled all the graphics in your Motion Pack to be downloadable in a Zip!

Each category has it's own Zip so the whole product is contained inside just 10 Zips. Look on the sidebar inside your Motion Hero Pack product for the links.

You can still browse the videos and download single files but now you also have the option to grab them all.

Next ... a great compliment to the Pack is my new release 'Square Video Wrappers' since you can add the graphics you own over these templates.

Watch my Video

I am sure you've noticed on Facebook and Instagram folks are using the Square format.

But with a twist ..

Your horizontal Video can easily get lost in the feed as folks scroll past.

So using Video Wrappers (to frame your Video) gives you more 'real estate' allowing you to add catchy headlines, sub-headers and all important subtitles (since folks often start watching on mute).


Watch my Video (time limited deal)

This means more views, engagement,...

Video Dashboard

This week I was sent Video Dashboard for a test drive

Video Dashboard is a Video creator with a twist. You can create Videos in different aspect ratios for the various platforms .. but the magic is that you can hook up all your accounts, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn even Tik Tok (11 in total).

You can have the app create the video (or import your own videos too) in multiple sizes (square,16:9, vertical etc) and publish (or schedule) them to all of your linked platforms in the correct format with a few clicks. There is a free Mobile app that syncs with the desktop app where you can view your TikTok / Instagram videos for publishing.

One cool feature is you get pre-made videos, so you can easily edit them and set them to publish every day via the 'Social Calendar' to your chosen network.

You can use this for servicing clients too.

I am still testing, but seriously, for less than $50 it's crazy good value and worth a spin!

I joined the Facebook...

Using Motion Graphics with your Square Video Wrappers!

 

If you own Video Hero's Square Video Wrappers then you'll want to add the Motion Hero Pack if you haven't already!

See the Video above where I combine the Wrappers with Motion Graphics you get inside the pack .. you can easily add an extra layer of movement to catch your Viewers eye .. plus add an all important Call To Action.

Be clear .. what do you want your Viewer to do next?

Like, Comment, Click a Link, Share ... it's important to show them what to do NOT just say it. After all they may be watching mute.

Also emphasise what you are saying by showing it on screen.

The mantra is "Show what you say!" so it sticks in the mind.

Use the graphics to double up your message.

You get Lower Thirds, Buttons, Calls To Action, Text Boxes, Animations and a whole lot more inside the pack.

Go here to grab the Motion Hero Pack and get more results with your Videos!

You can use these Motion Graphics with ANY Videos you make whether square or not .. so for YouTube, Live Video, Facebook,...

Learn from a Mr.Beast Video (Editing tips)

Firstly, Happy Easter if you are celebrating ...

Today I was on the hunt for a gluten free, dairy free, sugar free Easter egg for myself!

Oh look ... I found one ... :)

So some quick tips ..

Watch Videos out of your niche!

I've recently been watching a bunch of 'Mr. Beast' Videos on YouTube.

My kids don't get it .. Why an old dude like me :) watches 20 year olds mess around and spend money for fun?

I admit, after a while all the fooling around can get annoying ... but the titles of his videos are very intriguing and the editing is smart! You can learn from Videos even if they are not your 'cup of tea'.

Take this Video 'I spent $50k on lottery tickets and won __'

In essence it's just two talking heads at a desk .. but the Editor makes it way more interesting with ...

  • Zoom cuts (Jumping cutting hard from a wide to a single head)
  • Zoom ins (slower zoom ins on a headshot)
  • Plenty of close ups of the lottery cards
  • Text and graphics to 'sign post' the state of the challenge throughout...

Video Hero, Yosemite & Brexit!

Time for a catch up ... and no that is not me pictured above!

First up .. Brexit

Last week I took the day off to head to Westminster, it was yet another huge voting day in the Brexit process plus there was a large pro-Brexit demo.

I must admit I have become addicted to flicking between news channels and social media observing every twist and turn. Got to stop that!

But I was NOT demonstrating! I wanted to witness with my own eyes (and camera) what was going on plus shoot some stock clips / stills of the 'circus' surrounding the vote.

What I love about running an online business via video is that whenever I want to take a day off and go into town to soak in the vibe I can!

After all, whatever your views - it is history in the making that will be studied in schools in years to come.


(This iPhoneX picture I took was accepted by the Stockimo/ Alamy photo library .. submitted via this app)

I do admire the calmness of the TV News Presenters who are set up near Parliament with folks...

ScreenFlow 8 has been released (NEW features!)

So, a quick update from Spain!

I recently signed up to an Email List and the confirm Email I received contained a useful Gif!

You see an issue right now is getting Emails you send to your subscribers out of their Gmail Promotions tab and into the Primary tab where they are more likely to be read.

Even if you are sending Newsy Emails full of goodness and low on promotion - you can still end up under Promos for many different reasons.

So here is my own GIF showing you what to do .. if my Email landed in your Promo folder, please (if you wish) drag it from your Promo to your Primary Folder then click YES to future Emails.

Using the app? Press down on Email to select it .. then .. top right corner ... move to ..

That way you won't miss my mails! You can always drag it back if you want.

You see GIF's do have a use other than just fun memes, and the fact they can be compressed small and added inside Emails is like having a mini-Video inside your message.

You can easily create a GIF like...

ScreenFlow Editing tip

Welcome to my thoughts as I sit here sipping my Coconut Milk Latte

If not now? When?

One advantage of getting a bit older is ...

I have become super motivated NOT to put off ideas that I have been prevaricating on. I feel more urgency. That's a great thing!

I wish I had that feeling sooner. Hint: start now.

One thing I have learned is if I actually do get the idea out of my head into a Video (or an email or social post) - 9 out of 10 times it works!

I feel now I am way better at taking action, rather than parking the spark for another day ... a day that never quite happens.

So yesterday .... having thought about it for a while .. I decided to shoot a fun Vlog and crush any doubts I had whether it would work or not .. I went out and shot parts of my day, edited it immediately and it just felt right.

Here's a still frame of me randomly in a Poland shirt - though clearly I am not Polish! (World Cup Merchandise has hit the shelves this week!)
