So ... I recently ran a survey of folks who edit their Videos with ScreenFlow (for Mac Only.)
I found there is BIG interest in learning extra tricks and time saving ScreenFlow hacks PLUS how to Edit Video Ads and Promos that convert!
All my Videos are edited with ScreenFlow and the ROI has been huge!
So I held a Live 2 hour ScreenFlow Workshop all about creating Video Ads. The good news is you can now access the recording as a Bonus inside my course 'ScreenFlow Universe'.
This is for folks who already edit with ScreenFlow at a beginner/ intermediate level.
You will learn in the first part some of my favorite ScreenFlow tricks and hacks, then you'll watch over my shoulder and learn how to create 3 styles of Video Ads that convert!
My Video Ads have been doing super well (selling to cold traffic daily) and I want to show you how to make Ads for your own niche.
This will suit you if you want to make your own Paid Ads or Promos to run on your...
So one tool I have recommended a few times is the Video creator Viddyoze.

Basically you can easily add a Pro Touch to your Videos with Logo Animations, transitions, outros and more.
It's a no brainer investment if you want to Win with Video (IMHO)
Viddyoze 3.0 has just been released and if you are NEW or already own Viddyoze please watch my super short demo Video!

See you over there!
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.
I mention this because my Ad (it's...
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 its' 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.
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).

This means more views, engagement,...
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...
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,...
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 would an old dude like me :) watch 20 year olds mess around and spend money like there is no tomorrow?
Did they forget I used to be a freelance MTV Director when I was younger? I love this style of video.
Even if you are an Accountant or a Funeral Director who uses video, you should always expand what you watch online to get fresh ideas.
I do admit, after a while all the fooling around in Mr. Beast videos can get tiring ... but the titles of his videos are very intriguing and the editing is very smart! Y
You can learn from his Videos even if they are not exactly your 'cup of tea'.
Take this Video 'I spent $50k on lottery tickets and won __'
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...
Watch my Video above to discover how to make a super handy Progress Bar for your Instagram or Facebook Videos .. just like Gary Vee!

Update: Since I published this post, I brought out a Pack of Video Hero Square Video Wrappers that include easy to use Progress Bars! They work on pretty much ALL Mac and Windows editors.
So if you want to make Videos like Gary >> get the pack here.

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...
