Well folks, I finally got my first voicemail feedback last week after begging you for over a month. Yes, Devin Rose from St. Joseph’s Vanguard sent me a message asking me a couple of questions. First, he wanted to know how I made my video intros and outros. Also, he asked how I found the music that I use in my podcast and the videos that I’ve done. My friend, your questions are about to be answered. Not only that, I’m sending you a $25 Amazon gift card for leaving me the first voicemail.
How to Make Easy Video Intros
I’m going to share the secret of making professional looking videos in only a few minutes: Animoto (<– affiliate link). I;ve been using the business version of Animoto for the last year. It is an extremely easy way to make a whole bunch of great video slideshows and intros. That’s what I’ve been using for my videos. Here are some examples below:
In order to do what I do legally, you need to buy the business version. It’s a bit expensive, but I think it’s worth it. But, I want to list the pros and cons:
- Pros of the business version.
- Very fast and easy to make videos.
- You get 100+ royalty free music choices.
- Hi-def videos when you need them.
- It’s a bit expensive.
- The videos tend to look the same after a while.
- People who use Animoto know that you are using an Animoto video.
Overall, I definitely recommend the service. But listen to my podcast for a more opinionated view of the web application.
When it comes to music that you can use for your podcast, you get what you pay for. If you are looking for free music, they tend to not be very good. I bought my podcast intro music from Music Bakery. Each track runs about $50. There are other sites like Jamendo and Smartsound that run about the same. But the music is great quality and help you to build your brand. The downside is that other people may use the same songs (listen to the podcast to find out who else uses my intro).
Hope these answers help! If anyone has a question, give me a call on my 24/7 voicemail line at 714-643-5301. Your questions and feedback make this blog and podcast to keep going!
