10 Short Fruity videos in 5 Hours?

For this PLR experiment, I'm hoping to create 10 short videos, take incorporates some information taken from PLR articles.

Why 5 hours? I don't know... a 5 hour time limit just seems right.

Instead of attempting to create all 10 videos in a solid 5 hour block... I'll aim for 1 video in 30 minutes. So that's 30 minutes to read the article, select appropriate pieces of text, format text, find images, put everything together and then turn it into a video... Hmm, maybe half an hour seems just a little over ambitious.

I don't think I'll make it within 30 minutes... but let's see how close I can get. Like they say, better to aim for the moon and... well, you know.

The aim of this PLR experiment
Well, I suppose the real aim for this experiement is... actually, there is no real aim. I do all of the PLR experiments on this blog, just for the fun of it. It's fun creating something. It's fun making something better than it was before. It's fun creating something new from something else.

As I said in a previous post, I don't use PLR content seriously... which is ironic considering that I started a blog "for those serious about private label rights content"... but that's a story for another time.

But, if you're not satisfied with that explanation, then I'll make up a reason for this experiment. Let's see... the point of this experiment is to demonstrate that it's possible to create short and fun videos that incorporates PLR content.

Yes, the video makes use of PLR content. But, the truth is, the fact that PLR content is used is nothing special. You could just as easily have used content that you wrote yourself or ghostwritten content. Remember, PLR content is just a tool. Some people prefer to use PLR content instead of writing the content themselves or outsourcing it.

So, let's assume those same people want to create a quick video. Well, this PLR project demonstrates that it can be done.

Selecting the PLR content
As you could probably guess by the post title, for this PLR experiement, I'm going to be using Fruit related PLR articles. I bought these articles from Yummy PLR, which specializes in providing food and recipe related PLR content.

Planning the video
I want the videos to be simple, just a few images and some text taken from the PLR articles. However, I want the text to be short, but informative or interesting. The primary aim of the video is not necessary to inform the viewer about the particular fruit. Instead, the aim of the video is just to be something 'cool' to look at... well, as cool as looking at fruit can be.

I think 3 good points per video should be sufficient. As I said, the information is not the focus... the images are. I want the videos to be light and easy going, not over loaded with text to read.

The Process

  • The first step is reading the particular article and finding 2 or 3 good points
  • Next, I'll put each point on it's own slide and then convert those slides into images
  • Then I'll need to find a few pictures of the specific fruit
  • Finally, I'll put everything together into a video.
  • Creating the video is actually the easiest step, because I'm going to be using Animoto

Creating a Video Using Animoto in 3 Steps
Creating a Video using Animoto is incredibly easy. First, you select a theme for the video. Next add pictures and/or text and arrange them in the order that you want them to be. Then select music. You can upload your own or use music from Animoto's music library. The final step is to click the create button and Animoto will take care of the rest.

The topics for the 10 videos
I bought a pack of 10 PLR articles from Yummy PLR on fruit. The pack contained an article per fruit... in other words, each video will be on a different fruit. Here's a list of the fruit that I'll be using:

  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Cherries
  • Lemons
  • Oranges
  • Peaches
  • Pineapples
  • Plums
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelon

I'm treating this PLR experiment as 10 separate projects of 30 minutes each... so the total time limit is still 5 hours. I'll update you on each video project as I finish it. Let's get started...
