None of us can have failed to notice the impact that Gifs have had over the last few years. Thanks in no small part to social media, animated gifs are created, shared and go viral almost instantly. However whilst they certainly have their comedic value, they also can play a major part in promotional and marketing strategies. Integrating a Gif into an email newsletter or as part of a website design is one really creative way of getting you and your business noticed. Easier said than done you may feel. Well...not any more, thanks to this week’s Startup of the Week.
Cinegif is a new cloud based platform which is making the creation of Gifs much easier, more accessible and still with a real focus on quality.
The platform has a whole host of features which make the process so much easier for any creative or marketer. Users can upload still photos and images and video from a variety of the most popular formats, use the inbuilt tools to preserve or capture motion in video or sequential photos, trim and edit easily as well as convert and compress images and videos to virtually any dimension, without it impacting on quality. And that’s not all - Cinegif also provides its’ users with the option to host and store their Gifs with its’ integrated Gallery function.
From website design to marketing and promotions, the possibilities are pretty much endless for how you could use a Gif to add a little extra creativity to your business. The really great thing though is how easy it is to use - people of all skill levels can use it to create Gifs. It’s almost like a DIY Gif Generator that gives professional results.
Interested in trying it out for yourself? Creating your first Gif is free and there are a range of packages available to suit almost any budget. So then...what are you waiting for....
