How to Create a Whiteboard Explainer Video in Minutes
We are going to show you how to create a whiteboard explainer video in minutes. There are many reasons to consider adding an advertising video to your website or social media account. People love videos. They consume them at such an astounding rate that YouTube has now passed Facebook in popularity (in terms of number of monthly visitors). While your marketing video most likely won’t go viral due to its lack of cute babies or frisky felines, it can mean a lot to your business and customers.
If you have been looking for a how to set up Facebook page cover photo tutorial, then you have come to the right place. Feel free to watch our video, but also let’s look at why it is important to set up your page correctly. Facebook, as a corporation, feels like it is time to once again change their working algorithm for businesses. Seemingly just like every other business in the world, Facebook wants to appeal to their users and make it more difficult for businesses to advertise to those users. This is good for users but bad for businesses.

Have you ever had one of those ideas that you just knew is absolute gold, but you had no idea how to even begin to make it possible. It’s like the time I had this idea to create a pillow with a pocket for your iPhone. I told my wife about it and tried to convince her to make some for the Etsy Shop she had at the time. She thought it was a terrible idea and made so much fun of me. I had absolutely no way to make this pillow. Needless to say, the pillow didn’t get made. No less than 12 months later, guess what pops on my TV Screen… but an infomercial for a pillow with a pocket. There it was. $19.99 for two as a matter of fact!
The point of that story is sometimes when you get a good idea you have to go for it. I had one of those ideas pop into my recently about creating a cartoon. The only problem was I had no idea how to animate, and finding a professional animator was going to cost way too much money. Remembering my pillow with a pocket snafu, I decided that anything I don’t know, I will learn. I will not let another idea pass me buy. So I learned how to animate in one weekend.
Using Adobe Animate to Create Videos
When I first started using Adobe Create Cloud, I only had it for Photoshop. I never dreamed that one day I would be able to use the majority of the apps within Creative Cloud. As of this weekend, I have now added a new skill to my Adobe repertoire, as I learned how to use Adobe Animate. And I was able to learn how to animate in less than 10 minutes. It is very similar and has a lot of the same tools & functions as other Adobe products. That makes the learning curve much less steep than it would be for a first time Adobe user.
The most confusing thing about using Adobe Animate is learning how to make the objects move. My first attempt at animation involved manually moving each object frame by frame. However, I knew there had to be a simpler way to animate simple shapes. Then I discovered how to use the Classic Tween. Using the Classic Tween is extremely simple and allows your objects to move evenly and fluidly throughout an animation. To see exactly how to use the Classic Tween & to see how to learn to animate in less than 10 minutes, please watch the tutorial video above!
If you have a Facebook account, you you have probably wondered how to search someone’s Facebook timeline at least once. If you don’t have a Facebook account, then chances are you are under 25 or over 80. Since February of 2004, Facebook has risen to become one of the top 3 visited websites in the entire world. For the majority of the last several years, Facebook was number 2. However, it recently took a tumble all the way down to number 3 compliments of YouTube. Ironically, many of YouTube’s views originate from Facebook. In any case, I’m sure Facebook isn’t complaining.
Today we are going to be looking at the top two reasons why people fail to make money online. With literally hundreds of thousands of e-courses, membership sites, forums, & money making blogs, how is it that people can still manage to fail at making money online? The information and methods of making money are definitely out there. Just do a quick search online for “make money online” and you will find so many different options to choose from. There is also a willingness from many people to research how to make money online.
Have you ever heard of information overload? It’s basically where there is so much information on a topic, that it is nearly impossible to fully understand the subject. This is the first reason why people fail to make money online. There is an over-saturation of information on the topic of making money online. It is such a broad topic with so many different sources of information, that it is very difficult for many people to actually choose the niche or the method that they want to make money online.
Every site or method you look at, claims to have the latest and greatest method of making money. It is so difficult to just choose one method when there are so many touting successes. And it seems that virtually every site explaining a method links to other sites that have equally good & working methods.
Welcome to my monthly income reports. Each month I will be completely transparent with you guys about the money that I am making with my online business. I do this not to boast, but to show you that it is possible to make real money with hard work and dedication.
Multiple Streams Of Income
One of the key things to making money online is having multiple streams of income. As you will see in this report, I have, on a good month 5-9 streams of revenue. Try to find various sources of income that are different enough that if something catastrophic happens to say YouTube or another way you are making money you will be ok financially.
DO NOT count on one stream of income to be the only way you make money online.
What Happened In April 2017
After a few months of not doing my income reports, I am back at it! I had some personal stuff come up that slowed me down, BUT never fear I am ready to get rocking and rolling again. These income reports are a great way for me to look back and see what I have done in the past, and areas I can improve. April was an interesting month for sure. The biggest thing that happened was the “YouTube Adpocalypse” as most creators are calling it. I’m not going to get into it here, BUT if you are interested in what’s going on with YouTube and some of their advertisers, you can watch this great video by Darral Eves explaining it:
Other than that, it was a successful month with a TON of new things going on. 🙂
