How does Reevio work? This is the clever bit. The Reevio team have developed something called modular templates… What now? A modular template. It’s basically a template that you pick, that’s got all these individual scenes in that you can pick and choose from to create crash-hot Events that’s unique to your marketing situation. Yeah, they also have Facebook cover videos. I’ll be honest, before Reevio came along, I didn’t even know Facebook cover videos were a thing… but WOW! Ha! Ok, but can something that does everything, really be that good? That’s a fair question, but the way these modular templates work is impressive, and when you add in over 6000 high quality digital assets that you get with Reevio, I think it’s probably harder to make a bad video, than a good one.
What kind of videos can I make? It’d be quicker to tell you what kind of Events it can’t make, but I can’t think of any. Seriously? Yeah, from marketing point of view it does the lot… Whiteboard, explainer, logos, motion titles, dynamic text, sales videos, promos, it’s even got something called a FUSION TEMPLATE that lets you combine your Reevio videos with other video you might want to re-use…That’s a lot!
Videos made by Reevio
The standard video editing software found on recent Windows operating systems is known as Reevio Video Maker. With the help of this program, you can upload videos to your computer, edit them with transitions and titles, even narration, and make a movie of your own to convert to DVD.
The Windows ME operating system was the first to bring this program along, and Vista and XP carried it as well. After Vista, Windows Movie Maker was dropped in lieu of Windows Live Movie Maker, a different but more recent program. However, you may find that you cannot find a lot of desired features in Windows Live Movie Maker that were found in its predecessor. Windows Live Movie Maker seems to have been created for the sole purpose of making quick videos for YouTube uploading and the like; however, classic Movie Maker features a lot more editing and transition tools that are desired.
If you have Windows 7, though, there is hope, as the Microsoft website will allow you to freely download Windows Movie Maker for your own use.
Using Windows 7 to Convert VHS to DVD
You have to get a few tools and programs to give Windows 7 the capability to convert VHS to DVD, which are included below. You need:
A. Windows Movie Maker. Since you will not get this automatically from Windows 7 like you would other OSs, you have to download it from Microsoft themselves. While the Live version is more recent, it is far simpler, lacking a lot of features you may want to use.
B. Video Capture Device. In order to get the analog data off your VHS tape in order to convert it to your hard drive, you need this. You can find a plethora of capture devices that Windows 7 will recognize, making installation and set up a snap, so there are no concerns on that front.
C. Software for Burning and Authoring DVDs. In the event you want to use a DVD player to play your DVDs, DVD Authoring Software is necessary in order to make it a video DVD.
Step 1: Plug The Capture Device In
First, you have to get the capture device connected to your computer. You should not have a lot of trouble with this, as with the right driver and hardware Windows should recognize the capture device. All you should have to do is plug it in, update the drivers, and you are set.
Step 4: Record
After everything is set up and ready to go, just hit the Record button, and Windows Movie Maker will do the rest for you, capturing the video as you have told it to. the time limit settings and file names will be ascribed to the video, so there is virtually nothing else you are asked to do for it until the file is captured.
After you have your captured file, you can play around with it in Windows Movie Maker, using all the features that Windows Live Movie Maker lacks in its program. Compared to Windows 7's default video editing program, you will have a much better experience with Windows Movie Maker.
Step 5: DVD Burning
You cannot simply copy and paste the video file to a DVD and expect it to play in a DVD player. Licensing problems prevent Windows from providing a DVD authoring program for your use. You might need to buy a separate DVD authoring package in order to convert your video file to DVD, enabling you to read the DVD in your DVD player as a regular disk, allowing you to watch the movie on your television.
You can find a lot of DVD authoring packages that enable you to make a professional-level DVD package for your video, complete with chapters, menus and transitions; there are so many different options, that it will have to wait until another article to go over what you could do.
Compared to Windows Live Movie Maker, you can have much better luck editing your videos with Windows Movie Maker. There is no reason to ignore the program, as Windows 7 fully supports it, and it is available for free at Microsoft's website. After you set it up, you can use Windows Movie Maker on Windows 7 to transfer a VHS tape to your computer, and author a DVD from the footage.
Review of Reevio
Using video marketing to drive traffic to your web site is an online marketing strategy many small business owners and internet marketers are beginning to embrace, with much success. Having a traditional website only allows you to reach those people who first find your website. However, combining video, social networking and some simple video marketing techniques can drive hordes of qualified visitors to your website. First, let’s forget the silly videos you’ll find all over YouTube of kids running into fences and demonstrating the newest dance move. While that kind of video can bring in hundreds of thousands of views, it won’t bring the targeted traffic you need. You need to be using Reevio Video Suite. Consider making a video tightly targeted towards your niche using Reevio. A real estate agent might make a video introducing herself and showcasing a few of her available homes for sale. A night club might make a video “commercial” with soundbites from partygoers. A software developer might make a video demonstrating his latest application. Because Google and other search engines are beginning to give videos hosted on sites like YouTube preferential search engine ranking, it’s quite possible your video could end up on the first page of search results for your targeted keyphrase. This is incredibly powerful and not to be overlooked, as this is what will make your video marketing efforts well worth the time you invest in them. Consider that YouTube itself may not have a huge market of people looking for videos on “Oakland real estate.” But if your video titled “Oakland Real Estate” made the first page of Google search results (again, due to the preferential search results video is receiving in the search engines) you’d benefit from the hundreds of people who search for that term in Google seeing your video as the #1 result and ,in turn, watching your clip. With the preferential treatment videos are receiving in search results, the question then becomes, “How do I move people from watching my video on YouTube to actually visiting my website?” This is simple. Bribe them, at the end of your marketing video. What follows are some ideas: * Offer them something for free at your site (a consultation, a report, free drink, demo version, MP3 download, etc.) * Poll them or ask them a question they need visit your site to answer. People love to give their opinion. You can combine with the free offer, above, by giving them the freebie upon completion of the poll or question. This is invaluable for market research. * Leave ‘em hanging. Don’t tell the whole story on your YouTube hosted video – instead, tell them just enough to incite curiosity. Then, instruct them to visit your site for the complete story or answer. Each of these ideas are intentionally broad can be focused indefinitely and molded to fit your target market. The key here is catching your audience while they’re hot; directly after having watched our video and giving them a reason to continue on to your website. The truth is that if you don’t, most will simply click through to another video or search result. Capitalize on their attention and tell them where to go and what to do next – you’ll be surprised at how many will comply! Even if you’re no Spieldberg (I know I’m not) you can produce traffic sucking videos with these simple methods.
