This weeks cool tool is a bit of fun but one that is bound to delight you.
The new video feature from Vizify makes a short trailer of your Twitter account. It’s a nice one for a Monday as it’s bound to put a smile on your face.
From a professional point of view it could be a good tool to show people why you are worth following you. It’s easy to say that you do a certain thing or promise something when people follow you but this shows people.
Here’s how it works
- Click through to the Video page on Vizify
- Click the ‘Go button’ and authorise the app with your email address and Twitter
- Wait a couple of minutes as Vizify processes your account, it will show you a cute animation whilst it computes.
- Now make sure your sound is switched on and click the ‘continue’ button.
- Click the ‘edit’ and you can customise your video. You have the option to edit what information appears, delete specific segments and add more of others. This gives you the opportunity to customise your video 100%.
- You can also change the background music.
I love that there is a ‘Follow’ call to action at the end as well, this really is a trailer for your Twitter account so it’s worth spending some time making it an accurate representation of what you do.
Once you have finished editing click the ‘continue’ button and you will be prompted to share with your Twitter followers. You can edit the automated tweet to sell your trailer to your followers.
Of course sharing the video to your current followers may not attract new ones so it’s worth thinking about sharing it on other social networks such as Facebook, Google+ and even Pinterest.
