Share your slideshow video with the world
Once your project is complete, its time to put it to work. With a click of a button you can share your video with clients and across your social media channels/
Create an emotional experience Start your sales session with a slideshow that gives clients an emotional connection to your photographs before you start talking prints and wall art. Add music and a few behind-the-scenes video clips to elevate the experience, whether clients are visiting you in your studio, or tuning in for a remote reveal.
A new addition to your sales packageThese professional slideshows can be sold on their own, or bundled with your other photography services. Stand out from the rest by offering these videos at specific price points for clients, and even using them as an upsell once a photoshoot is completed.
Gain new clients while you workAnimoto is so fast and easy to use, you can literally piece together a project in the time it takes you to grab lunch. If you just captured a wedding ceremony, you can present a same day slideshow to play at the reception. This is also a great way to gain future clients who are attending the event.

Engage more clients with videoWhen it comes to social media, video outperforms static images by nearly a 4-to-1 margin. Thankfully, you don’t need to hire an expensive videographer or buy a video camera on your own to produce video content. Easily create a professional slideshow video or your photographs.
Marketing your photography business
Leverage your photos as videosVideos or slideshows outperform static images any day of the week. Just because your main skill set is photography, it doesn’t have to keep you from producing long-form content. Connecting with an online audience means catering to their preferences. Start interacting with them on a different level through video.
Share a sneak peekRight after the session, share your photos in a short video with them, and let the client do your marketing for you. They will post to social media, share with their audience, and get the word out about your promptly delivered project.

I love Animoto. As a photographer it gives me that something extra to give to my clients. I’ve had several clients moved to tears after seeing their slideshow.
