If you’re making an invitation for a professional event, simply adding the word ‘video’ in the subject line of an email guarantees higher open rates. Video is enticing, and everyone likes to click on that play button. So we have compiled a list of events you can make video invitations for, along with pre-made templates that you can customize as you’d like. But first, let’s see exactly how you can make video invitations online on your own without any hefty software or video-editing skills.

 

How to make video invitations

Go to selfanimate.com

In your browser, type www.selfanimate.com and land on the homepage. Here, from the drop-down list under Make Video, select Business or Personal depending on your need. Then go through the collection of templates in our library and select the one you want, and click on Use Now to go to its customization page.

 

Log in/Sign up

Once you click on Start Customization, you’ll be prompted to log in or sign up. It’s a one-click process if you use your Facebook/Google account, or alternatively, you could register your email address and create a password.

 

Customize

After logging in, it’s all fun and creativity. All the templates are designed for you to completely make them your own. There are many customization options that let you make a video that’s unique to your style and imagination. You can pick your own colors and choose the font of the text and the layout of the video (portrait or landscape) in the test frame. These changes would be applied to all the frames of your video.

In the next step, add your own text and pictures in each frame to personalize your video.

Tip: Upload your media beforehand in your Selfanimate media libraries so that you have easier access to them when you’re in the thick of creating.

Tip: Preview your changes before proceeding so that you are sure of your effort.

Tip: If you don’t have material for any placeholder in any frame, you can delete it by clicking on the ‘dustbin’ icon beside it (in case of text) or ‘cross’ icon on it (in case of an image).

 

In the last step, upload your own music or add a track from Selfanimate’s library. You can also use a voice over by simply uploading one in this step.

 

Make and share

Yes, that’s it! Just click on Make Video Now and your video would be ready in a few minutes. You would also receive a link to it in your email inbox. Once your video is rendered, share it instantly from the platform. You can post it on social media directly, send to people via email, download it on to your device, or copy the shareable link.
