Discover 26 Mobile and Desktop Tools for Marketers

Eric Fisher from Social Media Examiner recently published a very helpful article exploring 26 apps and tools for mobile and desktop from the Social Media Marketing podcast’s Discovery of the Week.
In one of the latest blog posts, we were talking about the growth of the video industry, and I would like to point out an application that could be very helpful for creating your business videos.


When you need to repurpose online articles as videos, try Lumen5, a free browser-based app you use on a desktop computer. Simply copy an article’s URL into Lumen5, and it converts the article into a slideshow. After the conversion, you can edit the images, text, and video transitions on each slide. In about 30 minutes, you’ll have a customized slideshow that you can export as a video.

The slideshow editor includes a powerful toolkit with effects, copyright-free music, and media. To visualize this, one effect spells out a word in Scrabble tiles. Although the background images the generator chooses are relevant, you can also change the image to suit your desired look and feel.
Lumen5 offers a free version that enables you to see how it works and create an unlimited number of videos, but the video quality is limited. The Pro version costs $49 per month, and the Business version costs $149 per month. With these paid versions, you can export high-quality videos and unlock more tools.
