How to Easily Create Professional Graphic Videos with RendrFX

Published

on

I don’t need to tell you that video has become the name of the Internet game. It’s not enough anymore to write up long form sales letters or post static pictures, because users want to engage with video, whether that’s on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or anywhere else. The challenge is figuring out how to produce professional looking videos with limited resources.

We’ve all seen examples of how online videos are being used to increase engagement and conversions on landing pages, while also seeing how brands and businesses are using whiteboard video to explain and walk users through a blog. This is something I recently did with one of my own sites, where I walked users through the process of how to start a blog with a custom whiteboard video. Videos work extremely well because they gain the attention of your audience, and make it easier for them to consume your content versus reading straight text.

As affective as whiteboard and professional videos might be, they can also be quite costly in the process. An affordable and accessible solution for social media marketers is RendrFX. You don’t need a massive budget, an expensive camera, or a high-end video rendering PC in order to produce top notch video for all your marketing and other business purposes. You can do it all in the cloud.

Video Creation Made Simple

The primary objective of RendrFX is to provide a platform where businesses of all sizes can “easily and affordably create high definition videos.” They accomplish this by removing several of the hurdles that may otherwise stand in your way.

You don’t need an especially fast computer for video editing and rendering, because RendrFX takes care of that for you. You don’t to invest in individual stock images and background music, because they’ve got that too. And you don’t need advanced software expertise, because the whole video creation process happens from right within your web browser using their intuitive interface.

Best of you, you get access to a huge variety of motion graphics templates with hassle-free licensing that will really elevate your videos to a whole new level. It couldn’t be easier. Over 40,000 users have registered with RendrFX since May and an additional 400 are joining practically every day.

Also, if you are still on the fence about just how important and effective video can be for your business, be sure to check out these video marketing case studies. It’s not a question of “if you should” be using video within your business and outreach, it’s a matter how if you can afford not to!

100s of Templates, 1000s of Stock Assets

One of the first things that will strike you about RendrFX is just how comprehensive of a solution this is. You don’t need to invest extra money in additional stock photos, stock music, and stock video libraries because that’s all included in your monthly subscription.

Based on my count, you currently have access to literally hundreds of motion graphics templates that are easily adapted to suit your particular brand, product or service. What’s more, you can tap into the huge library of over 100,000 stock HD videos, over 300,000 stock photos, and over 100,000 stock audio clips. Naturally, you can also add your own media too, including direct importing from Facebook. New templates are being added every month as well.

With all of these resources at your fingertips, you can see how useful such a tool can be. Use RendrFX to create your social media videos for sharing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Use the tool to render video ads. Do you need a professional-looking intro or outro splitter for your videos? RendrFX is great for that too. From real estate to photography to just about anything else, this versatile tool can prove invaluable in any industry.

Just stop to think about how much you would end up paying if you wanted to license all of these stock media assets individually or through a subscription with another service. Having access to such a massive library of templates, videos, images, music and more really makes your job that much easier, because you don’t have to hunt around or worry about any additional cost. It’s all included.

It’s All in the Browser

At first, I almost thought that RendrFX was really just about this massive library of templates and stock content that I could use in my own videos, but there’s a much bigger piece of the puzzle here. What’s great is that you don’t need to invest in expensive video editing hardware and software, because you can make your videos right from within the RendrFX website.

When you log into your account, you can simply choose from the hundreds of templates available, upload your own content (like a company logo or video you shot yourself), and apply the template to that content automatically. Add in the text that you’d like and watch a live preview of what your resulting video will look like. It’s all really easy to follow and literally only takes a few clicks.

Once you’re satisfied with your creation, you can send it off for rendering in the cloud. You can exit your browser or start working on another project. When your video is ready, you’ll receive an email and then you can proceed to download the MP4 file or share it directly on Facebook. This video walks you though the process.

The example here was for what appears to be a company intro video, but the same fundamental process can apply no matter what kind of video you want to create. This is perfect for stylish photo slideshows or snazzy sales videos, for instance.

How Much Does It Cost?

It’s great to see that there are no hidden costs or any real restrictions when it comes to the pricing plans with RendrFX. Whether you opt for the standard plan or the premium plan, you can create and render unlimited videos each and every month. You don’t have to worry about going over a monthly allotment.

rendrfx-pricing

The standard plan and the premium plan will likely account for the majority of RendrFX customers, but more advanced users who need API access or custom private templates will find value in a custom enterprise solution instead.

The main differences between the standard plan ($49/month or $497/year) and the premium plan ($99/month or $797/year) are the number of users (1 vs. 3), the number of queue boosts (10 vs. 25), and the fact that premium plan members can have a customizable watermark placed on their videos.

Remember that every video you make with RendrFX (and you can make as many as you want) come with a full commercial and reseller license, so you can use the resulting videos in any fashion that you’d like without worrying about any licensing issues. What’s more, even if you don’t download the MP4 immediately, the video files are saved to the RendrFX cloud for access at any time. You can also upload directly to your Google Drive, Dropbox and/or Box for added backup.

If you’re looking to elevate your social videos, video ads, PowerPoint presentations, and any other online videos to the next level, RendrFX offers a lot of power at a tremendous value. You too can have professional-looking motion graphics.

1. Generate Traffic

Blog posts add more content to your website and thus attract more people to visit your site. Creating web content means that you can direct your readers to other parts of your website.

This means you can write a post about one of your products or services and use yours as an example. When readers discover this, you have a greater chance of boosting sales.

When it comes to marketing your business, SEO is king. SEO determines where your website ranks on search engine results. In turn, it impacts how many people find you.

There are a lot of things that affect your SEO. Things like a fully optimized website and using the right links can make a real difference. Hook Agency says that having the right SEO can double or even triple your traffic from search engines.

Once you have your website sorted, blog content is next. The more blogs you write, the better the SEO. Use popular keywords and terms that your audience would search for. This will make your posts rank higher on search engines and get customers your way.

3. Create a Brand Voice

There are a lot of company blogs out there which may be interesting, but they have no distinctive voice. When they have no voice, they all blend into one.

But if you write blogs with a specific voice, you make an impression. When people can recognise your writing style, they recognise your company.

Quick and Effective Tips to Maximize Speed of your Website or Blog

Published

on

Few things are worse than when you click over to a new website or blog, and then it’s loading slow as anything. With everyone having an extremely short attention span, and so many options for other websites and entertainment online, a fast loading website is a must for every blogger, brand, or business on the internet.

There are also many benefits associated with a fast loading site, beyond just user experience. Google is now penalizing sites that take too long to load, and boosting up other sites that a mobile-optimized and running super fast.

Depending on how technical your design or WordPress skills might be, the process of speeding up your site and maximizing it’s optimization might vary. To help with this process, I’ve listed a few of the best working methods below.

Optimize your Homepage to Load Quickly

With the homepage being one of the most vital parts of your website or blog, you should be doing everything possible to make sure it loads quickly. Different things can be done to speed up your homepage such as lowering the number of posts on the main page, minimizing applications and widgets from third-party sites, and also optimizing your images so they are either loading as a smaller sized file or through a CDN service. It’s also a good idea to use an SEO friendly theme or template, as these are more often cleaner with their coding and already optimized right out of the box.

Use an Effective Caching Plugin

If you are using a CMS like WordPress or blogger, then using an effective cashing plugin can contribute nicely in the process of making sure your site is loading as fast as possible. Since caching is an apparatus for a temporary storage of web pages to diminish bandwidth and to improve page loading performance as well, it saves the server’s time to make web pages load faster. Caching plugins are easy to install and use. All you need to do is perform some research online to see which plugin is best for your site, then click a few buttons to have it installed right within WordPress. Once this is done, it’s usually just a matter of copying the account number of your CDN and letting the hosting provider and WordPress plugin do its work.

Use CDN (content delivery network)

We’ve already referenced content delivery networks or CDNs, a few times now. The way these solutions work is that they host a version of your site on their server, and then loads the content from another server that is closest to that individual’s location. More and more site owners and bloggers are using CDNs not only to improve page load speed but to provide users with a great experience to make them stay longer on the website. Also mentioned earlier, this can help with how well a site ranks in Google, while also moving your site above the competition. Moreover, if one of your server locations is overloaded due to huge traffic and visitors, then users can automatically be switched to a new server location to enjoy fast loading website experience.

Improve Your Hosting Plan

If you have a slow loading website or blog, it’s likely due to your hosting plan. If you are pushing a lot of traffic through your site and making money in the process, you should definitely upgrade from a shared server. Shared hosting is often fine for new site owners and bloggers, but as your site gains more attention, backlinks, and traffic, it will also likely be using more server resource. On a shared server, your site is also sharing the server resources with many other sites — sometimes hundreds, or even thousands! Upgrading your hosting plan to a VPS or dedicated hosting package can greatly improve the performance of your site as well. So, if you are still using a cheap web hosting plan with an average price below $5/mo and receiving massive traffic from search engines, then it would be the right time for you to upgrade your hosting plan with a better one to speed up your website loading speed.

Use Optimized Images

Big images take up a lot of space and resources when it comes to loading data from your site. This is especially true with very high-quality images. While these images are going to play a big role in the beauty and engagement on your site, there are still ways to optimize such large images so they load faster and put less stress on your server. There are many plugins are available that can drastically reduce the file size of an image without reducing the quality. Image optimization will not only help you boost website load time but will also save disk space for more files and media. If you really don’t want to overload your website with plugins, then you can also use online image reducer apps and software to optimize image before uploading to the media library of the site.

Minimize HTTP Redirects Requests

How and where content is being loaded on your site can also affect its overall performance. You may need to use redirect requests to redirect the web browser from one URL to another. There are a variety of reasons as to why you might want to do this, such as to specify a new URL location, to track visits and clicks on the site or to connect different elements of the website with each other. Since redirects might be necessary to enhance overall UX of the website, you should only be using the redirect requests that are most important because excessive redirect requests can have an ultimate impact on the loading speed of your website/blog.

Don’t Leave Your Audience Hanging

When browsing the internet, few things are more annoying than accessing a slow loading website. It’s hard enough to get someone to visit your site, let alone stay for a few seconds. Don’t give them a reason to leave right away because your site isn’t loading as fast as it should be.

Follow each of the simple and effective site speed optimization tips above to make sure your site loads as fast as possible, ranks higher than the competition and also doesn’t disappoint your audience when they hit your site.
