"Built video in 10 minutes!"

What do you like best?

So this was one of the easiest programs to learn from the very beginning. Created a free account (which is amazing to have that option this day in age). Added a few photos from a project, tossed in some text and it basically built itself! A few changes here and there and clicked finish. It is now rendering! While I was writing this review, the video finished and it is amazing! 49 seconds long and I can load it directly to Facebook. Thanks Lumen5!!!!

What do you dislike?

Couldn't figure how to add text after the initial text upload. Finally figured out that you can add text right onto a new photo that you drop in. Outside of that, first impression is that this is a program that I might actually use on a regular bases for our small business.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can't go wrong with a free account. Give it a try, toss in some photos and see what happens!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating videos never seemed like a viable option for our small startup. Usually the idea of cost or taking the time to learn a new program kept me from considering this. Lumen5 has changed all of this!

"The Ultimate Quick Fire Video Creation Tool"

What do you like best?

Lumen5 is one of those tools you'll be so happy to discover and forever will use to create eye-catching videos to build your brands' online presence. Lumen5 has some really great features for helping to create videos to help tell a story and animated quotes. The best thing for me is the simple step-by-step process the software guides you into creating your videos. I love the fact you can take text-based content and turn it into a video within minutes. Also love the featured assets, from graphics, Gifs, videos and music that you can add to really pack a punch with your message. Before I forget, I love the AI feature that generates images based on the text that's populated - genius!

What do you dislike?

Lumen5 are really good at listening to what their audience wants and I know they will get there as they're relatively still very young. At present moment my main issue is the length of time it takes to render a video after creation. I also wished that the option to create a video from scratch didn't have a load of content from Lumen5, it makes it a little confusing. Would be nice from the start from scratch feature did not to have any text in it so I could add it myself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A mobile app version would be great so that we could create content on the go. Also being able to title our own videos in the creation process would be really useful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lumen5 help us to create content for social media, not just ourselves but also for our clients. The quality of the videos, available graphics and gifs helps us to present thought-provoking videos that truly stands out in the newsfeed.

"The best social media video platform"

What do you like best?

Lumen5 is the best video creation platform available. I feel happy and grateful to have been one of the first users in the community. I remember that I needed to create videos from my content for #LuxuryDistrict on Instagram and Youtube, but I did not know how to start.

Suddenly I received an invitation from Mike, introducing the launch of the platform!

I love you guys! I wish you all the blessings and success ever! Congratulations!

What do you dislike?

I did not like it when the ability to create the pŕopria color palette for branding was only made for premium users. But its alright! I know that you are evolving every day! This matters!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stop complicating your life or your business with various video platforms for social media. Lumen5 is all you need. The fastest, most complete, most fun and most generous video platform out there. Congratulations Lumen5

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed to create videos with my personal style.

Luxury content with music of the highest quality harmonious, cultural and inspiring.

With Lumen5 I can do all this, creating videos with text content and images, or just images, or just texts, and the best, combining my ideas according to Lumen's own image and video library!

It is wonderful! It has mainly Hard Rock music to serve as soundtrack for my videos!

Please feed the platform with more images and videos from Malibu, Los Angeles, California. I love you guys!

Lumen5 is too incredible and easy to use, has many functions to achieve incredible finishes incluse in the free version, and is perfect for creating marketing content.

It would be nice if could include more videos formats.

"Amazing video tool that's easy to use"

What do you like best?

Lumen5 lets you create videos from blog content. I've been able to make lots of great social media content and videos for existing blog posts and landing pages. The tool is very easy to use, and the free options are great. I love the music library and images available.

What do you dislike?

The customization of each slide within the video can take a while to change. I spend an hour sourcing the right images and finding the right ways the text should be presented.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Share your videos with your managers - they will be impressed!

"Quick Easy Videos for Social Media"

What do you like best?

The video editing is very intuitive for beginners. I like how I can easily do all my editing on just one screen.

What do you dislike?

The AI doesn't always find the appropriate graphic for the sentence I want to use. I sometimes have to do my own search to find a more fitting graphic.

Lumen5 helps me to create text-based videos that are perfect for social media. With Lumen5, I can repurpose blog posts for video.
