Step-by-step guide to making non-profit videos

Step 1

Upload your photos and video clips

It’s as basic as it sounds. Simply upload your photos or video clips into Animoto and start creating your project.

Step 2

Edit any way you want

Get creative with it. Animoto gives you tons of pre-made templates and other features for customizing your non-profit videos. Make it unique to your cause. Choose colors, fonts and styles, add your logo as a watermark, and find visuals in our library of Getty Images stock.

Step 3

Get heard through social campaigns

Use your new non-profit video to boost your fundraising efforts. Animoto lets you post to multiple social channels, or you can save your video on your computer for future use.

Generate shared experiences

  1. Connect with your audience
    A video slideshow can be a great way to connect with viewers and encourage donations. Be sure to tie in images that help your audience relate to your cause.
  2. Use text to motivate
    Short, but powerful, lines of text can compel your audience to take action. Be sure to add a sense of urgency and time sensitivity to your calls to action.
  3. Select music that moves your audience
    Music can underscore the emotion you want your video to create. Animoto lets you choose from a number of music tracks, and also makes recommendations for you depending on style.

Save money and time

  1. Professional video editing
    Animoto helps to become your own video editor. Quickly learn how to produce videos that look great and encourage people into taking action.
  2. Sample from a storyboard
    Start your project off right with one of our social-tested templates. Cut time out of your editing process with a pre-built storyboard for your fundraising campaign, based on successful non-profit campaign practices.
  3. Finish projects on your terms
    No more being held to the schedule of freelance editors or other third parties. You can create your project entirely on your own and in less time, making it a cinch to respond to events and crises as they happen.

Social media marketing for non-profits

  1. People love videos

Success Story

Tripling reach on social through square video

Famous sociologist Jane Goodall mastered the art of video creation to help her create content that furthered her conservation efforts. In testing, she found that square videos gave her higher conversions and better overall engagement than landscape videos. These videos are especially easy to consume for mobile users who make up 60% of all internet users.
