    Nice tutorial John. Thanks for sharing. I use Animoto for promotional videos for my clients. Two things that I don’t like about Animoto is the character limit and subtitles. Another great thing with Animoto is that you can add video snippets showing items in action. Cheers!

    Yeah, the character limit can be a challenge, although if you really need to display more words on the screen, you could always make an image (even using something as simple as Microsoft Paint) and upload that.Thanks for the comment! :)-John.

    Animoto is by far the EASIEST way to make a short video, but you can also use something like iMovie (on a Mac) or Windows Live Movie Maker on a PC. You have to do the work yourself, but you can at least get your marketing videos out there! :)Hope this helps!-John.
