How to make a logo sting for your video easily

How to make a logo sting for your video easily

When making videos you will want to create a nice logo intro or logo sting as it is officially called to break up your video intro rather than going straight into your content.

Starting your video with a question that your target audience would like an answer for, followed by a logo sting, and then your content is a proven way to pull people to watch a little more of your video and is, therefore, best practice when it comes to video

Traditionally in order to create a logo sting, you either needed to have your own effects designer, use a freelancer, become skilled in something like adobe after effects or you could buy a pre-made effect from Envato.  But this still required a knowledge to edit.

The good news is that in this post I am going to show you in a video below an IOS app called IntroMate.  This app comes with a number of pre-made Logo Sting templates that you can amend with your own text etc and in a few minutes, you can have your very own logo intro created.

It is very easy to use and you can have a logo sting for your business ready and in your next video in a matter of minutes so do  check out the video below.

Do you want to know 3 types of video to improve your blog?

Do you want to know 3 types of video to improve your blog?

In my blog post, how to create a winning blogging strategy, I detailed that it was important to ensure that the format of your blog would allow a reader to view the content, especially on mobile.  Using paragraphs and images is great but one definite edition to have is to embed video in your blog.

Blogging Strategy

 

 

Consider these statistics about video consumption

  1. By 2019, global consumer Internet video traffic will account for 80% of all consumer Internet traffic (Source: Small Biz Trends)
  2. YouTube reports mobile video consumption rises 100% every year (Source: Hubspot)
  3. 90% of users say that product videos are helpful in the decision process (Source: Hubspot)
  4. After watching a video, 64% of users are more likely to buy a product online (Source: Hubspot)

 

As you can see the power and effectiveness of video cannot be ignored and by embedding one into your blog post you greatly increase the chances of increased inbound links and more views on your post.

 

Embed video in your blog: 3 types to use to improve your post

 

Blog Video

1 Video of an existing blog post

For existing blog posts and any new posts, you are creating why not make a video detailing the key points you detail in the blog just as I have done above.

This not only helps with the overall look and format of the post, but it allows you to give a reader the choice to consume the content in the manner they like.

Remember that people now read and view material more on their mobile, and some people prefer to read text whereas other people prefer to consume video.

By having a video of your post embedded in the content you ensure you cater to all of your audience’s needs.

 

How to video

2 How to video

If you are writing a blog post to show your audience how to do something, for example, how to use one of your products.

Consider adding a how-to video that visually shows the reader the steps you have detailed in the blog.

Once again always remember that some people learn better from watching how to do something rather than reading instructions.

Customer testimonial

3 Customer testimonial

If for example, you wanted to write a blog telling your companies story, brand values and what you stand for, why not add a video testimonial from one of your clients.

Having such a video will solidify and strongly support the brand message you are trying to convey in your post.

 

So, there you have it.   I think you will agree that video is very important and by embedding a relevant video on your post it will elevate the value your audience will place on your content.

TubeBuddy is a browser extension and the perfect tool to help you manage everything to do with your YouTube channel. It comes with a vast array of functions to help you get the most out of your channel and to ensure your videos are the very best they can be before you publish.

Two other wonderful things are that it is free and the functionality you get without having to spend any budget is very impressive as it gives you hand checklist of things you need to ensure you have done to make your video the best it can be.

A second handy thing about TubeBuddy is that it also comes as an app so that you can manage your youtube account when on the move via mobile.

Do you want to be able to download a video from YouTube?

Do you want to be able to download a video from YouTube?

In this #curlymarketertip, I show you how to easily download a video from youtube using a site called Computer Hope.

The advantages of doing this are, you can now share this type of content natively on your channels rather than just a link that I believe will bring more impact to you your post.

Also, I do believe that more and more of the social media channels are penalising content where links are shared because in effect you are taking anyone that clicks on the link away from their medium.

Therefore, natively posting a video as advised above should keep you in the good books of the various social media channels.
