Wave.video just announced two new features for their video marketing platform including an advanced GIF maker and a tool to export a snapshot of your videos. As a content creator you can now easily convert your clips into animated GIFs and static images – and create viral memes.
Repurposing is one of the most effective strategies in content marketing. If you have some footage, turn it into an animated GIF with Wave.video and share it on other marketing channels – social media networks, emails and messengers.
This can be done in four simple steps:
- Upload a video or create a new one;
- Go to the publishing step and choose the GIF option;
- Fine-tune resolution and smoothness of the animation;
- Download and repurpose your content.
Create Engaging Thumbnails
Every video needs an eye-catching thumbnail to attract more viewers. Wave.video allows you to make custom video covers in the editor and export them as static images.
Simply customize a video or image with texts, stickers, or other enhancers and select a frame on the timeline that you would like to export as a static image. Finally, click the “Publish” button and choose to save the current frame as an image.
If you want to catch the latest trends and be in tune with your users, you should post some memes. It’s a cheap but effective way to engage with your audience and increase their loyalty.
Simply search for the “meme” template in their library or create one from scratch. Then add some text and stock images or video clips. All you need to do then is publish your meme as a GIF or static image.
PS: You can now also emphasize your messages with customizable text backgrounds. That way, you can easily underline or outline your message or even put it into a circle or a box. If you don’t want to start from scratch you can head over to the “Text” section of the editor and access a text library with hundreds of predesigned templates.
