Content samurai overview

Welcome to my content samurai review. I have been doing video marketing since 2016. In my video marketing carrier, I have used a lot of video software from various marketplaces, from that experience, I am here to do my content samurai review in an honest way. Also, I am going to share some strategies, tips, and tricks that I personally use to get the best results using this software.

 

I have made some affiliate commissions with simple product review videos created using this software. Make sure to check out my earning proof down below this page. I highly recommend you to check out my content samurai bonuses here. Let’s start our content samurai review now. 

Content Samurai Review - The Introduction

There is no secret that video content is the hottest content right now. People spend more time on watching videos rather than reading blogs.  Studies have shown that consumers are 64-85% more likely to purchase a product or service that has video representation. This is why online marketers trying to create more and more videos on their social channels such us youtube. Take a loot the Neil Patel’s YouTube channel. He is continuously posting videos every day to his channel to keep their audience engaged.

 

But the problem is, creating a good video is not simple. It takes time. Even if you want to create a 4-minute video, it will takes more time especially if you are a beginner. When comes to creating videos, most people are shy and they don’t like to show their face in front camera.

 

Recording a professional voice over for the video is also a big pain also costs more on freelancing site if you decide to outsource. If you are living near the bus stand or traffic areas, then the unwanted noise will occur during the voice record. Also, I believe that maybe English is your second language.

 

Services on creating a 1–2-minute professional video from Freelancing sites(like Fiverr, Upwork and so on) it will cost you a minimum from $500 to $1500 or even more sometimes. Also, the freelancers will take anywhere between 1–3 days to deliver your order.

 

You are not alone. Me too… So, what is the real solution to face the above problems? Well, that is why I searched a lot and found a great tool to solve those problems. It’s called content samurai.

What is content samurai?

Content Samurai is a web-based video creation software that turns your written script into beautifully looking videos in a matter of minutes.

 

Unlike other video creation tools, content samurai makes the video with beautiful motion backgrounds, text overlays, animations and even it will do the voice-over for your video on its own.

 

Content samurai’s text-to-speech is one of the best voice generators that I ever seen before. I have talked more about this on this page.

How to use content samurai? The member area walkthrough

Content Samurai is simple to use and straight forward. Once you login to the software you can able to see 6 menus arranged in the left-hand side.

 

Simply follow these steps to get a perfect video for your business.

Step-1: Choose a content samurai video template

First, you have to choose a video template from the library of over 100+ templates. The templates are made for different categories and niches. You can pick any one of the premade templates according to your need.

Content Samurai Review - About the DFY templates

These are categories of templates:

  • Video for social media,
  • Video from an article or blog post,
  • Sales video,
  • Video for my online course,
  • Property listing video

Under each category, they have 25+ templates. All the video templates are pre-made. However, you can edit, customize and you can make it in your own style.

Step-2: Write a script

Once you picked a video template, you have to write the script in the script box. This is the most important step among all. Write a script that you want to say in front of your audience.

Quick Tip: If you don’t like to write the script manually then, you can make a good script with the help of “Ezine Articles” and Spin Rewriter” software. Search a topic in EzineArticles(.)com and then, copy and paste a few lines or paragraphs from ezine articles to spin-rewriter software. Click the spin button. Spin Rewriter automatically rewrites the sentences, paragraphs without changing the meaning and makes it 100% unique. So your copy-pasted script will not get any copyright issues.

Recommended: Don’t post a whole paragraph in the content samurai script area. Split each paragraph into multiple single lines with a gap under each line. Make sure to put quest stops and commas for each line. I will tell why in the upcoming steps.

Step-3: Create scenes

Once your script is ready then click the create scenes tab. Now, the content samurai goes autopilot mood to find the relevant background images and background video clips for each slide (according to the script that we wrote in the script area).

Also, it will automatically bold the important words on each slide and it will automatically set one line per one slide from the script. You can also edit the slides with 2 or more lines if you want. I recommend one or two lines per slide.

Step-4: Music and voice over

1. Music only

Here you will have four options to choose from. If you select “Music Only” option, then the final video plays background image animation, text overlays with background music.

 

2. Auto voice

Personally I prefer to use “Auto Voice” option. When you select this option, content samurai will convert your text script into professional voice over. The text-to-speech engine is really amazing. I have included some sample videos on this page. Make sure to play the video and hear the quality of sound it produces.

 

3. Record your own voice

This option allows you to record your own voice. When you choose this option, content samurai will ask your permission to access your microphone. Once you click to allow the microphone, then the slides will start playing and at the same time, you have to record your voice. No worry, you have the full control to start & stop the recording option.

 

4. Upload voice over

Content samurai has the option to upload a custom voice over to your videos. Got any professional voice over from Fiverr or Up Work? you can use that with content samurai software.

Step-4: Preview video

This is the pre-final step. Here you have to preview the video. Make sure to watch the preview till the end. Once you are satisfied with the video then the next step is to render the video.

 

Note: You can able to choose background music along with the text-to-speech voice. So that video will be more realistic and professional.

Step-5: Download video

After the click of the render button, content samurai combines all the slides, audio, text-to-speech voice and makes the final output video. Then, you will be able to download your final video into your computer.

Content samurai needs a written script to make a professional video. All you need to do is, just write a good script in the script box.

Content samurai will automatically analyze your script and pulls relevant background images and background clips for each slide. Also, it suggests you choose your own background images and video clips too.

Auto voice generator

Content samurai turns your written script into a professional voice over. In my opinion, The text-to-speech engine is very good.

The good thing about this voice is, it automatically reads out the script whenever the slide starts and it finishes reading when slide ends.

Motion background for each slide

You already know the content samurai finds you relevant background images and background video clips for each of the slides that it creates. If it is a background image, then the image will be automatically zoom-in and zoom-out with the text overlay.

As usual, the background video plays with the text overlay on each slide. You can rule the content samurai to choose only images/video clips for the background from the script area.
