Impressive videos and slideshows deliver positive results, whether you are making a presentation for a product or service, or sharing something on your blog or business website to attract potential visitors or capture customer leads.

But not everyone is gifted to create such nice videos. In most cases hiring somebody is the only option which could be very expensive.

My Hawaiian friend, Joe, during one of our business meetings introduced me to this site called Animoto which allows you to create great looking music videos and slideshows like a pro – without the need to know any video editing or designing skills.

How easy it is to create your own video and slideshow with Animoto? It’s very easy – really.

Simply select video style from pre-defined video styles or create your own style, upload your images & video clips, then choose your music as the soundtrack to your video – from its library of pre-licensed, legal-to-use music, or upload your own song in any MP3 format.

Animoto will then analyze every nuance of the song: the video’s transition, speed and presentation are “synchronized” with the background music. It can produce totally unique  TV & film-quality music videos each time.

Videos can then be e-mailed, downloaded, exported to YouTube, burned to DVD, and placed on your website, blog or shared on social networking sites MySpace, Twitter and Facebook.

Here’s my 30-second video created using Animoto.
