Would you like to create GIFs to use on their own or add them to your videos to make them more captivating?
Would you like to learn how to create them on PowerPoint?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, I have the answer and it's easier than you think.

As product creators and entrepreneurs, we all know that if a picture paints a thousand words, then a video will paint a million. That's why many content providers, social media platforms and selling platforms like video and GIFs.

In fact, studies have shown that:

  1. 1
    85% of all internet users in the United States watch online video content monthly on their devices.
  2. 2
    Videos are a consumer's favorite type of content to see from a brand on social media.
  3. 3
    Companies are using video marketing to improve their business. 
  4. 4
    In 2022, it's thought that 82% of the global internet traffic will come from video streaming and downloads.

Hi, my name is Marian Blake. I am a content creator, author and entrepreneur. As part of my quest to make and sell products, I have experimented with several programs, both free and paid for, to create videos. There is often a steep learning curve, even the ones with beautiful templates and promise it is as easy as 1, 2, 3. I am not as patient as I could be, and I always want to create things as quickly and easily as possible. I sometimes give up if the video creation is not going well.

I know I needed to create videos and GIFs,

 so I got thinking!

So what program do I use A LOT and am happy playing on? As normal, the answer is PowerPoint. I can hear the whispers "PowerPoint is a slide presentation program."

About PowerPoint.

Many people think PowerPoint is only a presentation creating software. It was, but as it has developed in response to ever changing business needs, it can do so much more.

Okay, it isn't perfect. BUT it is very, very good. They designed PowerPoint to allow anyone with just a little knowledge and the dexterity to use a mouse to create great slides. This is also true with the video functions they added to the program.

It allowed people to use a product they know and trust and, with a little extra training, create videos and GIFs, good enough to enhance their message, either running on its own or within a presentation.

It saved people in business having to make time to learn a new software to create standalone video presentations.
