  • About a minute long for the ‘slideshow’ kind above
  • Can be up to 3 -4 minutes if includes snippets from the author (perhaps interview questions …)
  • These were made with Lumen 5. A free (or paid, for more features) company. I simply dragged and dropped in the music and most of the photos from their huge library of copyright free music/photos. You can also upload your own.

  1. I think these are well done. To me they provide a nice quick overview of the contents and spark an interest in wanting to know more. I think these would work on social media as the moving images should provide a visual interruption to the reader causing them to stop scrolling focus on the ad which may not happen with a static image/ad.
