Using the Platform
Using Content Samurai to create high quality, traffic generating videos could not be easier.
You don’t need to know any programming skills. There’s no complex video editing software to mess around with. And no monkeying around with codecs, aspect ratios or file formats.
If you can click a mouse, you can create killer videos!
Here’s how it works…
Step 1 – Add a Script
Simply copy and paste your script into Content Samurai’s text box (repurposing an old blog post, article or newsletter piece is perfect for this!).
You also have options that can automate a bunch of things for you to make your life even easier. With a click you tell the software how you want it to break up your script for the slides. You can also have it automatically bold words to stand out on each slide, add motion to images, and even select images for you based on keywords in each slide!
Click the “Create Slides For Your Video” button and in a few seconds all your slides have been created.
Step 2 – Choose Your Visual Effects
This is your chance to customize the look and feel of your slides. You can adjust the slide theme, layout and bold font color. Add images from 1+ million royalty free photos… or upload your own photos to use. You can even add motion to the images you use in your slides to add more visual interest to your slides.
Step 3 – Add a Voiceover
Content Samurai makes adding a voiceover a snap! It breaks your script down into short chunks that you narrate one at a time. So if you slip up, no problem! Just re-record the small snippet instead of starting from the beginning.
You also have the option to upload a voice track of the script so you don’t have to record in Content Samurai.
Don’t want any voiceover? No problem. Just skip this step by choosing “Music Only”.
Step 4 – Preview
Want some background music to give your video some personality? Select from the royalty free options or upload your own music.
At this stage Content Samurai does all the work for you to sync your slides with the audio in just a few seconds! After that, it’s ready for you to review to make sure you’re happy with the final cut.
If you want to make some final adjustments, you can easily go back and change anything you want. Or, if you’re happy with it all, click the “Looks Good, Continue…” button and move on to the last step.
Step 5 – Download
Last step. Click the “Generate Your Video” button and Content Samurai does the rest. All you have to do is download the video and post it to YouTube and/or your favorite video sites.
The entire process takes less than 30 minutes or so (depending on the length of the video, how many slides you have and how much you want to tweak things)!
