Lumen5 and a tip or two!
Using Lumen5 online video creation tool, I spent a few minutes taking a blog post link and creating a quick tips tutorial for beginning content creators. Lumen5 would be great for presenters, quick social media posts and so many other uses. Easy and intuitive.
For corporate presentations, or events I can see this used as walk-in entertainment, event housekeeping, or even live update with tweets gathered during other times during an event. It’s so fast and easy to use (if you have internet access) that it would be easy to create something on-site.
Consistent blog posting is important for most social media channels. Have a blog post or maybe just a quick product review or life hack? Just a paragraph or two, the AI will find the photos, (free and premium) and they are mostly spot on. But it is AI and so there will be a few misses. Thankfully they have an easy search and replace function or you can upload your own. You choose the music from free and premium selections and you select the typography style from their templates then edit and change placement easily.
They even create a little bumper with your logo which is a nice surprise!
If you have already written a blog article, place the URL into the application and AI takes over. Give it a try.
I am using their free platform and so there is a “MADE BY LUMEN5” advertisement at the end of the video. You can eliminate that by signing up for a subscription.
If you are wondering how long it took? Well writing the blog post took longer then editing this video. About an hour from signing up, learning how to use it and completing the video to download.
