Teaching Entrepreneurs Animation: The Easy Way To Use Video

Video is taking over Social Media, especially on mobile.

Entrepreneurs are busy bees. 

They do not want to hire expensive equipment, go to the hairdresser and talk in front of the camera.
Entrepreneurs have a clear message, and they want to bring it to Social Media in a professional, but also attractive and striking way.

Here is where you, Social Media manager, Virtual Assistant and Freelancer come in.

Use animated video. In the newest generation software, it is easy to make an exciting, professional animation with a clear message. 
You can make your message in 20 minutes, totally adjusted to your niche and purpose of the message.

The result is entertaining, to the point and very effective. 
On my first month on Linkedin: 16.000 views with animations and related posts

• You can add this skill to your portfolio!
• Make some extra cash by selling your animations as a service on Fiverr.
• Impress your clients with this skill other VA’s don’t have

The tools that are available now just did not exist 2-3 years ago. Only highly paid specialists could make these animations. 
Now you can too! Make unlimited messages for under $100 a year. 

You even have the right to sell them.

In my 30+ year career in the art world, I was surprised to find software that allows you to make Linkedin posts, Tweets, eCards, Event Announcements, Launch Videos, Promotional Animations, Startup Explainers, Facebook ads.

Your time investment can be as little as 1 hour, to master the basics, and work with beautifully designed template
For real estate, dentist, coaches, travel, builders, book shops, writers, you name it.

My background: Artist and teacher since more than 30 years, animation software teacher since 3 years.
Teacher at Udemy. Com with over 8000 students.
