Magisto is a web application and mobile App (available on IOS and Android) that provides an automatic video editing service for amateurs. According to their website, Magisto’s goal is to solve the problem of video editing being too complicated and time-consuming by letting users edit their videos with just a click. I put together a few Magisto videos using the mobile App, and it was very easy to do.

The FREE version of Magisto allows you to utilize many of the features. However, there is a PAID VERSION. For $4.99/month, $14.99/year, or $.99 single move download you get these additional benefits:

  • Unlimited cloud storage for your videos (Free version: 5GB)
  • Unlimited SD downloads (Free version: $1.00 per movie)
  • Upload 30 clips to create a movie (Free version: 10 per movie)
  • Create longer videos/movies (Free version: 1/2 the length)
  • Upload 30 photos per video/movie (Free version: 10 per movie)

Magisto was also included in Google’s list of Best Apps of 2013.

If you are wondering how this application could apply to your real estate business, here is an example of a real estate professional using Magisto to create an
Open House Video Tour:

How does Magisto compare to Videolicious and Animoto?

Magisto is available on Android, whereas Videolicious is NOT available for Droid as of yet. However, Animoto is available on Android it can essentially do everything that Magisto does. The FREE version of Animoto allows you to create movies of just 30 seconds or less.  The FREE version of Magisto lets you create movies of one minute and 15 seconds, which is more than double the length of Animoto.

In summary:

Tech Savvy Agent sees Magisto more relevant for creating fun movies with family and friends, especially since it does not allow for voice overs if you were looking to create an home tour video.  However, you can see an example of how a real estate agent used Magisto by clicking the “Open House Video Tour” link above.

However, if you give Magisto a whirl for a real estate related video, please share with TechSavvyAgent.com!!!

Thanks, Tech Savvy Agent

As a real estate professional you need to wear a lot hats. You have to be a jack of all trades, and it is up to you to be proficient at each one. However, a lot of Realtors® seem to stumble when it comes down to design. You know your market or properties inside and out and you can tell people about them until the cows come home, but putting those details into a professional looking marketing piece can sometimes be problematic.

Canva to the rescue! Canva

The hardest part about designing something is getting the project started. Most of us don’t have the creative insight, and vision to see the final result we want. Canva has 20 different templates and countless design options to get you moving, to spark that imagination and make it your own.

Here is a list of some of the pre-sized design templates currently available to create…..

Facebook covers, posts, posters, business cards, social media graphics, twitter banners, real estate flyers (133 templates just in this category), FB ads, Pinterest, collages, and so many more!

Canva Real Estate Graphic

A simple, yet elegant design from Angeles Martinez De Carvajal, a Realtor® who uses the Canva app!

The best part of Canva is in its simplicity. The program is a breeze to use on an iPad or a desktop. The user interface is so simple and straightforward, yet still allows a great deal of control over your marketing piece.

Check out the video ablove to see the full picture Canva is painting 🙂
