With social video software such as Lumen5, you can easily produce a couple of videos in a day

Video marketing statistics reveal that people around the world spend an average of 6 hours, 45 minutes per week watching various types of content. By 2022, global internet traffic from videos will make up 82% of all consumer internet traffic. This means that if you are not already pushing out video content, you are losing out. But with zero video-making experience and no professional film equipment, is it even possible for you churn out any video content at all? With social video software such as Lumen5, you can easily produce a couple of videos in a day.

 

[Lumen5] uses Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and machine learning to help you produce engaging videos, no video editing skills required

Lumen5 is a free video creation platform that is designed to make video-making easy. It uses Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and machine learning to help you produce engaging videos, no video editing skills required. This is how you start creating your own video using Lumen5 in five simple steps:

Step 1: Sign up for free on Lumen5

Go to the Lumen5 website and create an account for free.

Step 2: Choose your video format

Once you’ve created an account, you will be redirected to a page where you have to choose your desired video format. You don’t have to be too worried about this because you can always make changes later on.

Step 3: Key in the link of an article/blog post

Just paste the link of your blog post/article and Lumen5 takes care of the rest

Now, this is where it gets interesting. Lumen5’s unique selling point lies in its ability to retrieve content from an article and convert it into a video. You can now save yourself the trouble of manually creating a video from scratch. Just paste the link of your blog post/article and Lumen5 takes care of the rest. Its A.I. reads the article and populates the storyboard for you. Machine learning highlights the important keywords in each sentence.

Step 4: Make your adjustments

This is the part where you will spend most of your time. You might need to make a few tweaks depending on the purpose and concept of the video. You can edit the text or choose a more appropriate stock video. Since Lumen5 will not know who or what the video is for, you have to make those refinements to ensure that it delivers the right message to your target audience.

Step 5: Export and you’re done!

Once you’re satisfied with the final product, all you have to do is export your work and you are ready to post it online!

Just a reminder: it’s free!

What’s great about Lumen5 is that it’s free! You don’t have to pay a single cent to use the free version of their platform. And no, there isn’t any watermark on the video or other paywalls that will hinder you from publishing your video online. It’s also

Simple to use!

…[Lumen5] takes no longer than fifty minutes to get a video out

Lumen5 is really simple to use and it takes no longer than fifty minutes to get a video out (you can do it much faster if you’re not too fussy, actually). The platform is designed to be user-friendly so if your employee has zero experience in video editing, they will still get the hang of it very quickly. No training needed.

But there are limitations

…you cannot customise the colour or font of the texts in the free version of Lumen5

Unfortunately, there are several limitations to using the free version of Lumen5. For starters, you cannot customise the colour or font of the texts in the free version of Lumen5. You will be limited by the list of fonts that Lumen5 offers you.

In addition, there is a limit to the number of videos you can export in a month. So if you are planning to churn out several videos every month, you might need to explore the paid plans.

But hey, what more can you expect out of an awesome video making platform that is free?

If you love how it works, go for the business plan

Lumen5 is a great platform for content creators who do not have any experience in video editing

That being said, the free version of Lumen5 is still a great way for you to trial a new platform that might help you speed up your video creation process. And if you really like how it works, you can explore the paid plans. It might be a great long-term investment for your company, especially if it boosts productivity.

Final word

Lumen5 is a great platform for content creators who do not have any experience in video editing. It is a quick and easy to use tool that gets the job done. If you have experience with more complicated software like Adobe Premiere Pro or FinalCut Pro, this platform might be child’s play for you. However, since Lumen5 is free, just give it a try. You never know, it might just be the right platform for you.
