Step-by-Step Guide

Creating your first marketing video with Animoto

Learn how to make a marketing video in just a few simple steps. Animoto's video maker helps you create videos that engage your audience, drive sales, and boost traffic to your website.

Step 1

Choose a video template

Our video templates are designed to give you a headstart on your project. Start by choosing one that matches up with whatever you're creating, like a promo video, a tutorial, or a testimonial video. If you're looking for a clean slate, you can also start from scratch.

Step 2

Add photos & video clips

Start by uploading your video clips and photos. If you don't have images, that's no problem. Check out our Getty Images stock library for over 1 million clips and images to add to your video, all of which are included in your subscription. Once you've picked out your media, just drag and drop right into the template.

Step 3

Customize your video

Write in your own text, select your brand colors, and choose a font. Then pick a video style to set your text animations and transitions. Last but not least, select your music from our catalog of thousands of commrcially licensed songs.
