A few weeks ago I received a cold email from a lady representing FlexClip – a platform where you can produce your own videos (including access to their library of stock photos, video backgrounds, and background music). After setting up a free account and playing with it myself, I can honestly say that this is a great place to produce your own video projects even if you’re NOT tech savvy.
In fact, the video above was produced on FlexClip.
As I’ve mentioned in at least one other post, you definitely want to get your feet wet with video. When done right, videos can help:
- increase online traffic
- increase online conversions
- showcase a product/service
- create a personal connection with your visitors
- overall make your website more engaging and reduce bounce rate (when someone visits and then immediately “bounces off” and leaves your website)
Overview of Using FlexClip
After you set up an account and/or log in, your dashboard should look something like this …
The “IGvideo” is a video I created, exported, and put on my Instagram. Any other finished video projects would appear here.
When you click on “Create New” (orange circle with white plus sign), you would then be taken to a screen like this …
At this point you could either pick a video template (replacing any “dummy text” with your own text) or start from scratch.
When you click on the “+ Start From Scratch” on the right hand side of the screen, you would then see a screen like this …
This is where you begin creating the video itself. When it’s your first time, you’ll see some blue boxes offering some guidance. Just click “Got It” to acknowledge each one.
Each video frame is called a Storyboard. This is where you would add your text, photo background, video background, etc. You would also have the option to upload your own image/video files.
After all your desired Storyboards are in place, you would then click on “Export Video” near the upper right to download your video mp4 file.
What’s My Verdict?
Overall I highly recommend FlexClip and give them two thumbs up. They make it very easy to create videos for your website, sharing on social media, doing video ads, and just about any other purpose.
I also love their library of stock photos, video backgrounds, and background music. In case you’re curious, the title to the background music of the above video is “Epic Inspiration (solo piano)”.
You could also upload your own photos and/or videos to incorporate into your video projects.
I encourage you to give them a try and set up your account at https://www.flexclip.com/
