Did you know YouTube ranks #2 for search engines, after Google? This simple fact proves that videos are a great way of sharing online content. Why not use videos to also feature your artistic talent as an expression of faith in your effort to testify to the gospel of God’s grace (Acts 20:24)?
The role of the Internet in our ministerial efforts continues to grow, and we can no longer afford to ignore online informational opportunities. Have you ever considered creating a video to convey your inspirational message or promote your newest book or collection of short stories? Why not create a video of your faith-based oil paintings or water colors to showcase your artistic style and inform connoisseurs on how they can purchase your work?
It’s easy to upload a video to YouTube, and a YouTube video can help get your message across even if your website isn’t yet ready for prime time. Thankfully, making the video itself has also never been easier. I recommend annimoto.com, one of the easiest video creation tools I have yet to find.
“In the works since 2005, Animoto was founded to help people better share their stories and express themselves through online media by innovating technologies in the field of video production. Using the latest in entertainment post-production technologies, Animoto is designed to bridge the gap between the high production value of film and television, and the more “amateur” feeling of most user-created videos and photo albums.”
It’s really a very simple tool. Choose and upload your images. Choose your music. Watch and share your video. A 30 second video is free to make, and for just a few dollars a month, you can create videos up to 2 minutes long that feature your own logo. Take a look at the simple video I created to help promote my Christian art.
If you’re interested, sign up for your own animoto account and start creating promotional videos today! In the meantime, I will pray for God’s blessing on your effort: May He bless you, expand your territory, keep His hand upon you, and keep you from evil (1 Chronicles 4:10).
