Turn Your Articles To Live Talking Videos

14 replies
Hello warriors.

Most of you have probably heard or seen this before, but i came across a website that enables you to turn your articles into talking videos. Very easy to do.

I see some big internet names in their testimonials like Willie Crawford.

Although its not something new, i thought it might be worth sharing to newbies and marketers that haven't seen this before.

Go to www.articlevideorobot.com

I am not affiliated with this service, though i see they have a affiliate program for those of you who wants to integrate it in your marketing efforts.

Have a great day and loads of success!

    What's the added value in turning your articles into talking videos? It's one thing if the software actually allowed you to add graphics and action video sequences, simply turning text into video is another....

      Here is a review found on the homepage:

      'Yes, .97 cents for turning any article into a video (up to 10 mins), including the voice-over, animation, all the graphics and submission to 17+ video sharing sites like youtube, veoh, metacafe.. all this for just .97 cents!'

    Just adding that there are some free text to speech softwares ( Free text to speech software with Naturally Sounding Voices -- Free NaturalReader for example)

    I guess it's good for traffic and backlinks.

    The benefit would be quite decent, as it allows to do video marketing.

      If it was just a video with an audio track of the article, where's the added value? Like I said earlier, if there are screen shots and diagrams or even animation that is relevant, the video might qualify as legitimate content but just turning text into audio? I am not sure if there is enough added value to put on youtube. It might get taken down.

        Hi writeaway. here is another testimonial:

        David Dean:'"AVR submits my video to 17 different video sites automatically!"
        Unlike articles, there is no duplicate content in videos! So when you create a video of your article, the video counts seperately for each video website you submit it to.
        What this means to you that with a single click your video will be going to out to 17 different video websites, i.e. your views and traffic multiply by 17 times!


        And its not just a video with a audio track.

          mmh... tell the contentID system on youtube that there is no duplicate content in videos!

          yes, it's only within youtube (they don't care about content elsewhere on the web) but if one person has already posted that "article turned into video" (if youtube even allows you to publish it) they could have activated the ContentID stuff, have your video flagged, your account marked for copyright violation etc... it's unlikely, but bad things *could* happen.

          And yt alone probably can give more traffic, rank, PR etc than all the other video sites put together, so it's pretty smart to avoid any risk of having your account banned for duplicate content and copyright violation (and good luck explaining to the google "customer service" that you have rights to that article!).

          Saying there's no duplicate content in videos is just plain wrong.

          ciao

          ps. having said that I know nothing about the software so other than this mistake everything else could be glorious and dandy... but that "little thing" just irked me :-P

            Thanks for your comment. i agree with you, as i don't know the software or tested it before , i just posted it when i came across the site for people that is not familiar with such software.

            As with anything there is pros and cons. As mentioned above my purpose with the thread was intended to make people aware of such software/services.

              If you check out ContentID on YouTube, you will quickly see that the odds of getting duplicate content from a read article are slim to none. 1st off, you have to have a large body of work to get into the ContentID. 2nd - you have to hold a valid copyright to the content.

              Bottom line: Don't worry about making articles into videos because of ContentID. It is "mainly" for record labels, TV and movie studios to detect when you are using their music or playing a clip (or the whole thing) of one of their movies or TV shows.

              Even if you are "caught", most times the copyright holder will block your video or monetize it. You can get your account on probation if you are a frequent violator.

              Something deep down tells me that article writers are not reading and submitting every article they write to YouTube. I've been making videos for a long time and have an account in good standing with no strike against it.

        Once you have your article converted to audio (or video from which you can easily extract audio) you can combine it with screenshots, diagrams, animation or whatever you want (again) very easily and create a video that would be more suitable for Youtube... so there definitely is value in services like this, although I'm not fan of something that doesn't sounds natural, like text-to-speech software but someone could easily use it to gain some benefits...

    If the example is anything to go by, the quality doesn't strike me as very good. Robotic voice, and too loud background music. Although I do have to declare an interest here.

    heres an easier method:

    Download Mixcraft for free, print out the article and record yourself reading it. Upload to spreaker / blog talk radio and share to youtube.

    Clear talking audio (since you recorded) you can seo it, and you aren't wasting your money on software to do it for you

    these type of videos make me shake my head, i'm sure they worked for a while when video content quality was low. but I have to think as soon as someone sees one of these videos now, they can't leave quick enough... just my 2 cents.

      YUK! I looked at EVERY example vid posted and they ALL suck! I'm sorry to be negative but if they are posting these as examples, I'm assuming they think the videos are top quality. They are SO robotic sounding and just awful! I couldn't imagine too many people having great success with this service.

      Good idea.....in concept.
