Turning Articles Into Videos?

14 replies
What's the best way to do this? Any suggestions? I wasn't a fan of article video robot, so I'll do it manually or outsource it, any suggestions though?

    Andrew,

    It depends on what you want the video to look like.

    Do you have a vision of what these videos are going to include? For instance, if you are hawking a product are you going to use 'product images' in them such as the visuals of an ebook or cd? And what kind of emotional triggers are you hoping to portray?

    That's why I suggest doing it automatically without robotic voices and with nice pictures moving. Still takes only a minute with a good targeted program, but is a much better viewing experience.

      I wish they did this for Mac.

      Oh well.

      Just wonder if it would speed things along for me.

      And no, I won't install xp on my mac. :p

      I do see a cheapo windows computer in the future for me though.

    I am just starting to do videos and I was told to buy a FlipVideo and do it myself.

    This thing is great it only cost a couple hundred bucks. Here is the link I was sent to check it out, you can buy these at Walmart, Best Buy and a bunch of other places, I bought the HD one. This link is NOT an affiliate link

    The voice over suggestions are great. However, you'll get a TON more credibility if you do them yourself (let them see you), that is if you have a good film presence which you can get with practice. With the right kind of lighting and a one color background you can have someone green screen it and slip in a nice background.

    Just rehearse the key points of the article and recreate the essence of the article that way. It's a bit more work but that kind of video can get some buzz going pretty quick and it'll be an evergreen traffic strategy.

    what we do is to bullet point the article, put the bullets over nice pictures and do a slide show. Sometimes we read over the whole thing and sometimes we just leave it like that with music background.

    if you are going to read, make sure you have a pop filter of any kind.

    you can do it even with windows movie maker.

    I tried the article bot thing and I found people do not go for it. I tested and found a simple slide show with real pictures and music, maybe a little voiceover done by you is best. The video can be short and sweet, I tested and got many more views doing it this way. The article to video sounds good at first, but people do not want to see huge lines of text when on youtube. I don't speak for everyone and I do not call myself an expert, nor am I stating this as fact. I just found that keeping it short and entertaining works much better, using windows movie maker should do the job.

    The example in Milans post is PERFECT

    Get a camera and a tripod - record yourself going over the article, then post it on youtube.

    If you want to get into making youtube videos, just do it.
