The best promo video service I have found yet.

2018-10-25

With Promo we are able to make original content to keep our social media sites fresh with new videos.

Pros

Premade templates available for easy editing.

Cons

When I start to think to myself it would be nice if it had this feature, a feature similar if not exactly like that becomes available.

Great Product For Simple Videos But Lacking In Features

2019-06-26

We were able to produce short videos for several advertising campaigns in a small amount of time.

Pros

They offer a wide range and a very comprehensive selection of content to use.

Cons

After producing just 8 videos, I started realizing that the look and feel of my content were getting stale.

If you have a question...Just ask!

2020-07-22

Customer service is always very prompt and helpful. Always polite and I get the information I need ASAP. If I could give 10 starts for this I would.

Pros

One of my favourite things with Promo is to social media calendar.

Cons

Not overly great for use on your phone or certain tablets, but this wont affect most people who do all there marketing at work rather than on the go.

The best online video editor for professionals

2021-06-09

Promo allows me and my team to quickly edit professional videos, I often start from one of their premade templates and I make few edits to come up with an original and unique video that I can use for marketing campaigns or social media feeds.

Pros

Promo.com has a lot of awesome templates for a bunch of categories, it became my one-stop-shop for all my business promotional videos because it offers a variety of video ads templates that I can simply edit on my browser without any program and they also offer a great selection of stock footage and text overlay options to make the videos more professional.

Cons

it's a bit pricy for small businesses but for me I think it’s worth it, I just hope that they can make it a bit cheaper to make it more affordable.

Great Asset for Our Marketing & Branding

2020-05-14

Over the last two years, Promo has helped me create professional content which has reached my target market, helped me to both create brand recognition and accomplish our marketing agendas.

Pros

Just recently all I had to do was brand a template and go.

Cons

Honestly, for the price, ease of use and functionality. I don't have any cons. This has been an incredible asset for my company. If I had one issue, I wish we could replace the green screen with images. But outside of that no issues.

Loving the experience

2019-08-28

My work with videos, beyond a trend in digital marketing, got easier and faster.

Best customer service in the world

2019-06-21

Promo allows me to make professional looking videos to boost my campaigns on social networks (they provide all video formats - this makes life so much easier!).

Pros

The platform has amazing content and the videos are super easy to edit!

Cons

Nothing! Love everything so far. Maybe promo could provide more text styles in video editing, but besides it the platform is perfect.

The best I've found so far

2020-11-12

I am a social media manager for a florists conglomerate, and I run all the company's social media platforms, plus the ones from nine franchisees, I need to keep it consistent and at one voice, but time is always my enemy, even if Promo is a service leaning toward promotional videos for paid advertising I am able to adapt it for normal everyday posting by making the videos longer (amazing feature), or uploading my own material.

Pros

The video templates are beautiful, even the free ones, which is a huge upgrade comparing to their competition; as usual with other competitors, the free videos are of low quality.

Cons

Can be a little tricky in certain features, specifically on how to remove sound or only keep the sound of your uploaded video, but the support chatbot is very efficient and clear in their instructions.

I use this tool regularly and I create a lot of content but sometimes I observed that glitches occurred with my content.

Some content is better than others

2020-09-16

Overall, I enjoy using it, but the quality for the price and the price structure is a bit frustrating at times.

Pros

I like the variety of videos available and the ability to crop them in different formats. It's easy to use and pretty plug and play.

Cons

It doesn't feel like a true marketing team was behind the content/copy of their templates.

The Best Online Video Maker

2019-11-20

Using promo has meant our social media feeds get more attention and we also use them on our website.

Pros

Lots of good points, but, In particular, the customer support is quick and efficient and the service gets periodically upgraded with new and worthwhile features. The media library is vast and includes footage, music and photographs.

Cons

Would like the ability to use more premium content in a particular video.

Simplicistic, Elegant, & a Staff Who is Beyond Exceptional

2019-06-06

Connecting to those who are always bombarded with ads and pressuring marketing campaigns, Promo allows the 100 Year Lifestyle to connect beyond the traditional "buy me/here's a discount" ad and rather towards a more organic conversation through videography.

Pros

For those just getting started in the editing world, this platform gives space for innovative expression, marketing, and connecting to more people in a world that is open to listening.

Cons

I don't always appreciate a glitch here and there because I use this software so much. Yet, when I do experience a glitch, the team is ON IT... Like asap and they make you feel supported throughout the instant messaging.

Promo allows me to make great videos without much experience.

2020-04-02

I'll keep using Promo it's a fantastic tool and without video experience, I've made several videos that were approved in marketing campaigns!

Pros

I love Promo because it has high-quality video clips and is so easy to piece together quick projects when I don't have a videographer available.

Cons

There could be more capabilities as far as text inserts but for the most part it works for what I need.

Like iStock and iMovie combined

2019-10-03

It's also nice that they have templates for each type of social media (Facebook, Instagram, etc.) to keep things sized correctly.

Pros

I love how easy it is to create a short video ad right there where you found all of the stock videos for the background.

Cons

To get the best price, especially for basic use, you have to pay annually. If you want to make a one-year commitment, you get a full 50% off, which is a good deal, but often a hard sell for digital marketers to make to department heads who make make budget decisions.

The Promo.com

2021-07-07

Overall, i will recommend this software, because it is a good entry level tool to get started on social media video creating for a reasonable price.

Pros

The Promo.com is a website where you can easily create video content for all social media platforms, It offers a create number of tools for each platform and it helps to create high quality content videos for someone who has minimal experience in that field.

Cons

Also in the beginning it still needs some time and dedication to understand the system and learn to how use all of the possibilities the software has to offer.

Fabulous for people who are not experienced in marketing but need a great solution

2018-07-16

Actual beautiful videos that make me look like a pro. I need to really use the offer I purchased but am moving slow and still figuring out a game plan.

Pros

ready made offers, using your own tune, funny pre-built everything, terrific for an on-going campaign reminders

Cons

Biggest fear is the market will get flooded with all the pre-built offers and it will be hard to distinguish who's brand is who's if they use the same videos.

These "promotional videos" are nothing more than stock footage with text overlays

2018-02-11

Create generic stock footage videos with text overlays. That's pretty much all you can do with this program.

Pros

The design of the website is very intuitive.

Cons

It has a huge library of video templates, but when you look closer at the videos, they all look basically the same.
