“Done for You” WordPress Video Course

Hey- it’s Michelle and I wanted to tell you about a series of videos I just bought. My friend and super savvy marketer, Chrissy Heron, is offering an entire 12 Video WordPress Course that you can buy this week for only $37.

Not only will you learn everything you need for setting up and using WordPress on your own website, but you also get the rights to take all those videos and sell them (she gives you all her marketing materials) to anyone you want.

Quick Camtasia Tip

What if you were working on a video in Camtasia and you realized you want to use a different image or media clip than the one you put on the Timeline?

What if you had already had it exactly where you wanted it and had even added animation or some other effects that you didn’t want to lose?

Easy – just right click either on the image or video in the clip bin or on the timeline,choose "Update Image"and find the one you prefer. The old media will automatically be swapped out for your new choice and retain it’s placement and all its effects. Easy Peasy!

PowerPoint Video Templates in the Real World

When it comes to creating PowerPoint video content, my partner Lon Naylor is one of the best! And there is something else he is well known for: Doing brutally honest reviews of tools & templates for PowerPoint products.

While most marketers simply copy/paste hype-filled swipe text, Lon actually uses them to create real videos and tells you the good, the bad and the ugly.

Check out his latest review post:

==> Wizard Design Pro Review & Template

You can download a template and also watch two video tutorials on using PowerPoint video templates in the real world.

That’s it for this week – see you in two weeks!
