According to Oberlo, 85 percent of all internet users in the U.S. watched online video content monthly on any of their devices. So, how do you get in on this?

Inexpensive video tools are a great start.

Here’s a list of tools we’ve been exploring.

RawShorts

This inexpensive tool uses artificial intelligence to create animated videos right from the copy you upload. How cool! They also have a royalty-free media library filled with resources by industry. Pricing ranges from $20 for three videos up to 25 videos for $8 each.

Biteable

This product is free if you plan to load the files directly onto a social media platform. They have a large image and icon library, plus royalty-free music to choose from. Free videos include the Biteable watermark. Paid plans do not and start at $20 per month.

Lumen5

Both free and paid plans are available. This easy-to-use tool allows you to start from blog copy that it scans from your website. No uploading needed. This is not just for animations. It also creates active, live video looks. Pricing starts at $19/month.

Animaker

This explainer video tool uses animation and cartoons to create video content. One of the cool features is you can upload your copy and then choose the script “voice” you want it to use. For the camera-shy, one benefit is that you, nor your, voice makes an “appearance” in the video. Pricing starts at $12/month.

Old School

If you really want to control the full production process, you can use tools like Keynote and iTunes to use slides, movement, and music. It’s a much more complex process because you have to create the slide deck, find royalty-free music, import the music, time the slides, and phew… export, test, etc. Your video will be truly customized. Cost is free, but time is money.

If you’re using video in your marketing, I’d love to hear what you’re using and it’s benefits. Drop a line in the comments.
