A Fantastic New Video Tool To Easily Promote Your Content

June 21, 2017

Welcome to Episode 9 of the BlueBird Podcast.

My special Guest today is Michael Cheng, co-founder of Lumen5

Lumen5 is a brand new tool that creates short videos from any link. It uses artificial intelligence to analyze the text content and matches it up with images and video clips from royalty free sites to provide a draft slideshow video with text overlays that you can edit or publish directly.

Here is a quick how-to video I created shortly after discovering Lumen5:

 

In the interview, Michael and I talk about what prompted the 5 people behind the tool to create it, what it does and what the next features might be. We talk about the fact that Lumen5 is free right now and Michael is very convincing when he says that there will always be a free version. At the end, we discuss the very interesting principle that customer support is an important part of product development. Michael Cheng strongly believes that customer support should not be outsourced and sees it as a core responsibility of the development team. In my experience with Lumen5 this has proven to be true in the speed and efficiency of the support I received. Unfortunately, sections of the interview were scrambled by the recording software. I have tried to summarize what was said in the sections that were unusable.
