It doesn’t take much to distract me so when I received an email from Animoto inviting me to create a video of the best of 2012 from my Facebook photo albums, I was hooked.

Animoto is a cool online video tool that makes it easy to create videos by simply uploading photos, choosing a sound track, adding text and clicking a button to produce the video.

Now, you can click a button and their Best of 2012 app connects to your Facebook profile to create a video from a random selection of the images you’ve uploaded over the year. Once the video is produced, you can preview and edit. It takes about two minutes.

I immediately created a video and edited it to include only videos from my recent trek in Peru, to Machu Picchu. Once complete, it’s easy to share the video on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

This is a fun, fast and easy way to repurpose your Facebook photo albums into videos and get more visibility for your brand and business.

If you create a Best of 2012 video, post the link in the comments so we can see what you were up to in 2012!

    Hi Denise-
    I had a great time creating a personal best of 2012 Animoto video, and appreciated your encouragement to do so. I also created a business 2012 video that I’d love to share. It focuses on the “Ask the Expert” interview series I launched this year on my blog, The Other Side of Organized. I invited industry leaders to discuss a variety of topics including change, letting go, clutter, time management, and life balance. The conversations that ensued were inspiring and generated a lot of great dialogue. Enjoy!

    Animoto is awesome! Frankly it’s been so long since I opened an account there that I forgot some of the creative ways I can use it until I read your post. I think I will use it my pinterest pins and facebook pics.

      Rene, I don’t use Animoto often enough. Like you, I forget I have an account. It’s such an easy way to create video that it’s a good tool to have in one’s marketing took kit! Thanks for stopping by…blog on!
