Video Marketing Tool – Content Samurai

Video Marketing Tool – Content Samurai
Video marketing is something we all know is very powerful but, not everyone likes to be on camera. Brian England asked how I made one of the videos in a previous blog and it gave me the idea to write a post in case it would help anyone else with creating video content. Thank you for the question Brian!

I wanted to share Content Samurai for those of you who fall into the not liking to be on camera category but, really it’s a great tool for anyone looking to add more video marketing to their arsenal because of how easy it is to take content you already have and make it into a video. 

 

Content Samurai allows you to take any written content you have such as a blog post and transform it into a video. I still think it’s great if you make an appearance in your videos but, with this, it’s not a must. There are days where I need to do a video but, don’t look camera ready and this is a great solution. We're planning on using this to take blog content I've created in the past and turn it into videos to add to our YouTube channel.

 

You can get a free week trial to see if you like it. You have full use of the site to really get a feel of how it works. Please note this link is my affiliate link if you prefer to visit the site direction go to www.contentsamurai.com. If you decide to sign up be sure to check for coupons, when we signed up they had different offers and I am not paying the full advertised monthly price because of a coupon code.

Below is an example of a video my assistant created using Content Samurai.

Hannah Williams there isn't a free version for Content Samurai. The trial does allow you to keep the videos you make and they don't have a watermark but, you're correct that it's just for a week.

Hi Amanda, I just looked into this and will probably use it for a couple of videos.  Getting apt copyright free video and images for a marketing video is always a problem and being able to put something like this together so quickly is great.  Thanks!!
