The Simplest Slideshow: Slidely Show
The Slidely Show for iPhone allows you to quickly and easily create video slideshows. Sounds great, you’re probably thinking. But how is this video slideshow tool going to change my business life? If you think Slidely Show sounds more like an app to be used among friends than a business tool, think again. Videos are the wave of the future in online marketing and advertising, and Slidely Show makes it easy to create and share short video clips on your businesses’ social media channels.
Add photos from your phone’s camera roll, Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, and more, and then add soundtrack with music from your device. Within a few minutes, watch as your video comes to life, edit your Slidely, and then upload and share your video on social media channels, via Whatsapp, email, and more.
When it comes to videos in today’s online content marketing, they don’t always need to be large campaigns: Slidelys allow you to quickly and simply create, upload, and share a short animated clip in minutes. Slidelys can be used to send quick video messages as inter-company communications, add a live flair to a meeting invite, say a morning hello to your target audience on social media, share photos from your most recent team-building activity, and much more.
