Check Out This Content Samurai Review 2019
Unless you have been hiding under a rock you will know that the latest trend online is video. It is said that by 2020, 82% of internet usage will be watching videos! In an average month 8 out of every 10 people, aged under 50 watch videos on Youtube. In fact, nowadays, 6 out of 10 people prefer to watch videos than watch TV. Staggering!
So, with that in mind, it makes absolute sense to start creating videos for your business. The trick is to not just make promotional videos but create educational ones as well. Put them together on a well optimised Youtube channel and you will start to see a growing number of people coming to your business.
Marketing strategies come and go, but to miss out the video revolution will be a huge mistake for your business! Those businesses that do not embrace video marketing will be left by the roadside – roadkill for the ones that start creating videos!
Are You Afraid?
Now, if you are like we were several months ago, you will probably be thinking some of these thoughts:
- I don’t want to get in front of the camera
- I don’t like the sound of my voice
- Video creation is far too difficult
- Video creation is far too expensive
- I don’t know what to say in my video
And many more I am sure!
It is true, for many years, creating videos HAS been difficult and expensive, but times have changed.
If you DO like what you look like and the sound of your voice then the weapon of choice for a long time has been Camtasia by Techsmith. At over $200 it is still way over the price threshold of aspiring online marketers and takes quite a lot of time to master it too.
The last few years has seen a deluge of video creation softwares, many of which have fallen by the wayside. Some are still live but not really maintained.
What other Video Creation Tools Were Out There
Some of the many (and we have invested in many of these!) are:
- Video Maker FX
- Video Motion Pro
- Screen Cast O’Matic
and the list goes on and on…
Over the last couple of years, there seemed to be a new kid on the block every other week!
Of the ones above, only several are still being used and updated regularly:
- Screen Cast O’Matic
They all have their good points and all have their restrictions.
Arise Content Samurai
Then along came Content Samurai from the people behind Noble Samurai and Market Samurai.
For several years Market Samurai was seen as the go-to research tool for internet marketers. This was because it was created by internet marketers so they knew what was needed. They then saw the growth of video marketing and came up with Content Samurai which has continued to grow and get better with age. CS is indeed the fine wine of video creation tools.
Now I will tell you that if you want to be the face on camera, then Content Samurai is not fo you. You are better off going with Screen Cast O’Matic or if your budget allows, Camtasia.
But if you want a simple video creation tool that gives you professional looking videos within minutes, then this is for you.
They describe themselves as “The first intelligent video creator that does all the hard work for you” and in our opinion they are correct. With it’s in-built artificial intelligence engine it reads he script you type in and creates videos based on the words you write. It does this with images from its database of over 110 million and now also video clips.
They have just collaborated with Storyblocks Video (formerly VideoBlocks) and have added over 350,000 video clips into the platform for use in your videos.
Whether you’ve been looking for a way to create social media videos, YouTube videos, sales videos or videos for your online courses, Content Samurai has you covered.
Why do we love it?
Believe me, I do NOT like my voice on camera and am too shy to be the face on camera as well. I don’t consider myself very creative either, not like some people who make it look natural! So, I needed something that would do the hard work for me and speak for me as well! The Content Samurai platform enables you to add just music, a voiceover or you can even choose from a range of text to speech voices that will read your script. The voices come in 3 accents (UK, USA and Australia) and compared to a lot of TTS examples on the market they are very good.
So, in simplicity, the way it works is this:
- Choose the type of video you want to create – square for social media, sales or Youtube
- Type in or paste in your script – it enables you to have a slide per sentence and several other options as well
- Click the button to create the slides of your video – Content Samurai goes off and finds relevant images and video clips, with your script overlaid.
- Scan the slides and change out any you are not keen on. You can search through the database for each slide.
- Add music, voiceover or the text to speech voice.
- The platform will then create your video.
- You can then download it to your PC
Yes it is as simple as that.
