First and foremost, Simplebooklet was designed to make your boring old print communications more engaging and influential. We've added features like interactive buttons, embedded videos, and a whole lot of branding. We want your content to impress people and be authentic to who you are and what you are trying to communicate.
Over the last 10 months, one method of communication that we've all come to rely on is video conversations. They don't need high production values and we've all looked into a few home offices and living rooms during this pandemic. But one thing these videos have done is given us a face to see and a confidence to believe in the communicator on the other side of the video. We wanted to bring that same authenticity to your Simplebooklet presentations. So after a lot of work, we're excited to release our latest feature, video narration of your Simplebooklet.
Now you can narrate your Simplebooklet using your webcam and microphone.
We've taken a different approach to our video narration tool than many others.
Per Page Narration
Instead of trying to narrate the entire booklet as a video, you can record your video narration on a per page basis. This means you only have to record your narration on the page you want it to appear.
Auto Play or Manual
You can set your video narration to automatically start to play when your reader opens to your page. By default it requires your reader to tap on your video to start playing your narration.
Auto Page Flip
Want to keep your booklet flowing? You can set your page to flip automatically to the next page after your video narration has completed. This is a great way to walk a person through a presentation or slide deck.
Some great ways to use Video Narration are suggested below:
Learning Management Content
Keep people engaged with your content by guiding readers through the content found on your page and helping them better understand what's important. People retain an order of magnitude more information via video than text.
Take your Google slides or Microsoft powerpoint and turn it into an automated presentation system. Record your talking points for each slide and automatically flip the slides when you are done. No need to be there when your Video Narration walks your audience through your deck.
Let potential buyers and sellers see your passion for the properties you represent. So much of real estate transactions are built on confidence and trust in the realtor, so put yourself forward and let your clients know how much you are committed to what is most likely one of the biggest transactions in their lives.
Magazines and Ad Supported Content
Create video narration for your advertisers, highlighting a sponsorship of your magazine page. Just like we're used to podcasters and youtube personalities promoting products, you can do the same with video narration.
Use your video narration to point out features or benefits of your product that aren't communicated on your page. Or even if they are, most people don't want to read a thousand lines of text to get to what you know is the most important part of the decision.
A quick testimonial or a personal reference of why a destination or activity is so great will go a long way to highlighting the benefits of your hotel, activity or tour. People are more excited when they get to hear from an expert before taking on a big trip or adventure.
We are making video narration available on a limited basis right now only to our Business plans as we learn how we can continue to improve and enhance this feature.
