    1. Yes, it’s great isn’t it? I love the video slideshows – I’m not crazy about putting myself on camera. LOL

  4. Hey Michelle – thanks for the mention!

    At first, I was a little intimidated by creating a video, but then I realized we have lots of choices for making and publishing videos without having to be live on camera. I had lots of fun creating a video for my landing page using Animoto.

    Now I’m curious to check out xtranormal – had no idea you could do text-to-movie videos – Cool!

    Thanks for all the great tips, tricks, and tools you share with everyone. You make business-building stress-free and FUN!

    1. Thanks, Melanie – I appreciate that. :)

  5. What a great idea!
    I’d love to make a video, but I, too, don’t want to be in it, so this could be perfect …………. just need to find the time to make it ;-)

    1. It’s a great option. I was surprised how quickly I was able to put together a few videos over the weekend – as long as I stayed focused and didn’t get lost choosing images to use. :)
