Here I share Vidspiration, gear and tools I am loving PLUS Online Entrepreneurship powered by Video!
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!

It's suitable for:
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...
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.
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,...

I found myself really going hard at my Online business whilst locked down at home.
I started doing things I had been putting off, like getting to grips with Zapier, creating Video Ad ideas in an hour and testing them immediately .. plus tweaking my website.
I had to socially distance myself from too much News and also Netflix.
"Create don't consume!" is my motto right now. Go make Videos at home!
And .. people are still buying online .. just be cool about it and offer them something that really fits their radically changed life.
This week, I had someone on pitch me a Doodle style video. I didn't need one but I thought .. "Hang on a minute!"
If filming in locations with clients is now nearly impossible (due to the Virus) .. then you can offer Animated Videos instead.
Liaise with your client via Slack or Skype, make it at home. Get paid.
Doodleoze is a...
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,...
I often get asked about the best tools for selling video courses, memberships and coaching.
As you probably know, I use an all-in-one platform called Kajabi that has an in built shopping cart.
But .. I know a lot of folks do not want an all-in-one and want to piece together the best tools into their own stack.
Well .. if I wasn't using Kajabi and was looking for a superior but low cost shopping cart .. I would without hesitation choose ThriveCart.
(nb. Even if you use Kajabi or Teachable or Thinkific & more .. you can still integrate with ThriveCart.)
I have used ThriveCart as a customer and as an affiliate promoting folks who sell their products via ThriveCart.
I also know my online colleagues are super happy with it too.
ThriveCart's feature set rocks:
It has more...
This week I noticed a lot of buzz around a thumbnail creator .. so I bought it for myself to give it a spin!
It's a super low fee .. but, beyond the hype - is it any good?
The Sales Page is a little over the top .. with a typical 'Voiceover for hire' on the Sales Video.
BUT .. who cares? All I wanted to know .. does it work and is it useful to add to your Video toolkit?
The answer from testing it within the last hour .. is YES!
The one below was my first attempt :) (joke test)
Thumbnails are crucial to get your Videos watched .. wherever they may be .. it's not just on YouTube, you can use this tool for your Online Course and Sales Videos too.
I bought the FE (front end) offer .. just so you know ... there ARE a few reasonably priced upsells to a template club, agency rights and training so please do not get MAD at me because you have to click through several upsell pages! The pain is worth it!
I got over 100 templates in the front end for...
E-commerce and Video go hand in hand!
How so? Well Video is one of the best ways to show how your Products actually work, to capture testimonials and customers using them and to create Video Ads and stories for Social Media showcasing them in action.
Video simply works!
But what platform to choose to launch an E-commerce business with?
I have recently been demoing a brand new solution that is keenly priced - ideal if you want to keep your overheads low.
GrooveKart is a new all in one Shopify E-commerce competitor.
With GrooveKart you get several apps and selling tools that you would usually pay separately for with other platforms, these extras bump up your monthly fee before you even get going. Not so with GrooveKart!
Go study the page .. watch the DEMO and make your own mind up ..

1. Motion Hero Pack 1 (300 Motion Graphics for your Videos)...
There’s a big dividing line between Video hobbyists and Entrepreneurs who make Videos.
I have been watching some Gimbal Videos recently on YouTube and they seem high on eye candy but low on purpose.
Meaning .. knowing how to film pretty videos with a low cost gimbal is fun ... but you stay poor :)
What’s missing for me is how to apply these cool video tools at our disposal to magnify our message and reach as a Business Owner.
Let’s turn geekery into actual goals!
You see better videos can have a transformative effect on your Business.
With that in mind .. I just added a new course inside the Video Hero Membership called 'Gimbal Magic'!
If you don't know what a gimbal is .. here is a picture. This gadget keeps your iPhone super steady and helps you shoot Hollywood style Videos for a low cost.
My course is not specific to any one Gimbal - I mention several.
The beauty is .. I tailored the course to folks who make Business Oriented Videos and want to...
This Video idea is flying .. it caught my imagination and I dived straight in!
It's called TXT Video. link to product
I signed up to test it myself! (Video above. Note: contest closed)
My thinking here .. Act quick .. get some Videos out there! (That's what I am doing!)
So what is TXT Video?
It's a simple way to create fun Text style conversations then export as a Video and publish (or include in other Videos you edit.) It's Cloud based, nothing to download (accept your final Videos!)
I think TXT Video will work great for:
On Wednesday I went to a Facebook event in London called 'Community Boost' and they shared amazing stats about how conversion rates on your site shoot up if folks have first interacted with you on Facebook...
