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.

Easier than expected!

2018-07-10

Pros

Ease of use and value for the dollar. I can drag and drop text overlays in a variety of ways, there is a vast library of video content to choose from, and really great music.

Cons

I wish that I could add buttons to track conversion to my website separate from other traffic, and also that I could do voice overlays in addition to text.

Great tool hope it gets better!

2018-07-13

More attention to our posts

Pros

Adding witty copy is fun and engaging, I really like doing marketing with this program!

Cons

On the downside, their music selection is still not great, especially the soothing, Spa-like stuff that we sometimes need, but I anticipate their music library will grow over time.

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.

Allowed me to create professional looking marketing materials for each season.

Pros

I love how easy it is to create videos and customize the audio.

Might be good to have a warning to users to keep the default size.

Great way to create unique videos

2018-04-05

Pros

You choose a video, pick a music track and add calls to action if needed.

Cons

Also, despite having millions of videos to choose from, many of them are generic and are best suited for "B-roll" type content.

Great (and easy) to deliver a single, short concept or message.

2018-08-03

My experience with the tool is positive -- mostly because the overall design is simple and single-minded...almost a templated use-case.

Pros

THe obvious point is that it is really-really easy. Click on a video, type two to four short messages, and they are displayed in an overlay, and pick your soundtrack.

Cons

Don't look for multi-layered messages or complexity.

2018-08-01

promo video quick and easy

Pros

Lots of content to choose from.

Cons

I find it hard to find certain videos -- if you are looking for a specific one you happened to see once upon a time, it's like a needle in a haystack.

Pros

More affordable than creating same content yourself.

Cons

Cannot contact company for support. Continuously bill you. I tried blocking the charges because I couldn't cancel and I was billed for 4 months. I never logged into their site used it at all. Work with them at your risk.

Easy to use, great results!

Pros

I find this VERY easy to use and intuitive.

I wish we had more font opportunities to match our branding. Please add Verdana or Cachet to the options or allow us to bring fonts from our PC.

I needed a commercial that was spunky and affordable and easy.

2017-10-28

The benefit is being able to produce a quality video in a short period of time, without spending hours and hours of my time trying to create something that looks professional.

Pros

I did not even have to get my son to help me, it was easy for a grown up, like me!

Cons

An improvement would be to allow more text and maybe a little longer than 30 sec., perhaps 45 seconds.

Don't Choose Promo!!!

2018-08-03

It's going on 4 days and customer service has done nothing (except give me a few video credits that the second time I asked when I told them I was concerned and going to write a review).

Pros

Decent video selection Chat response time was ok, but no phone available

Cons

-Unable to save and make changes to video project after an update - 4 days and still no correction or resolution for the issue (Unacceptable) -Very, very limited editing options

Easy success in creating my first three Facebook video ads for my product sold on Amazon.

2018-07-13

I have found the quality and the extensive variety of the video content to exceed my expectations.

Pros

I was surprised with the quality and the extensive variety of video content offering me multiple options for stock footage already edited to fit the theme I had in mind.

Cons

I do not have very much to offer in terms of cons, or things that I least like about the software. It works very well and provided me great flexibility in terms of editing the video, including trimming and stretching the length to fit m message.

Pros

The user-friendly interface makes creating a promotional video a piece of cake.

Cons

The only con I have is I wish there was a little more variety in being able to customize font & placement of font over the ads.

Great experience use it for social media

2017-07-17

Friends on Facebook like the design and music.

Pros

The different choices you can make with sound as well. The way I have full control on what is shown and the music.

Cons

Applying the text. It takes me about 20 minutes to get the text into the box. I would like to see more graphics for Accounting/Bookkeeping.

I love the personal twist on each video I make!

2018-07-14

I post my videos to Facebook and I love the fact that people recognize it and comment on it.

Pros

I loved the availability to manipulate any video to give my take on it whether through the music or the content.

Cons

I wished there were more ideas on verbiage to use for my field. I don't want to continue to say the same things in each video.

I'm a bit dense and had trouble setting up my video. This was many months ago perhaps before any rec

2017-07-17

Pros

However, I was unable to complete the video, but your customer support in the Ukraine was incredible each time. They went above and beyond to help me complete the video

Cons

I know you base the 15 second length of the videos on certain studies but I'd like to see them be a tad longer.

Hi there,

Thanks for your feedback and happy to read you think Promo is a great tool!
Promo actually offers various versions of each video that adjusts automatically so you can download as vertical, square, and horizontal for example. Can you email us at promosupport@slidely.com so we can show you how that works. The videos are also formatted for FB covers and our support team can help if the video is not appearing as you would have wished.
All content should look great on instagram, and terrific that you will use the square format!

Thank You

The labeling of music made it difficult to find the right track for the feel of the video. This is one area to improve.

I had a lot of fun making videos for our product.

2017-07-18

It provides a low cost way to create an appealing promotional video.

Pros

The software is very easy to use, the high quality videos are fun to watch, and the music is varied.

Cons

The promotional price was great, the subscription price was acceptable. But the automatically billed price went up without any warning, so I had to cancel.
