Video marketing is booming in popularity as more and more businesses are beginning to incorporate video ads into their strategy. That’s why when it comes to video ad software, there are endless choices. Yala began as a social media scheduling platform but recently launched video features, allowing you to make simple videos in seconds. Let’s see how it compares to some leaders in the industry at creating social media video ads.
Yala vs Promo
First up is Promo. Starting at $49/month, Promo helps you create videos for your business, but unfortunately, this Basic plan doesn’t get you much. You’re only allowed one video export per month and you need to upgrade to Promo’s $99/month plan to get HD videos and include your logo in your videos. If that doesn’t seal the deal, Yala prioritizes quality customer service for everyone. Promo does too; when you’re paying their Pro price of $359/month.
Yala vs Magisto
Next up is Magisto, an online video editor. For $35/month with an annual subscription, this software comes complete with HD videos, proper customer support, and a library of stock footage via Getty Images. The only downside is that iStock is often overused since so many sites use this same source. Magisto is also designed as a full suite video editor made for lengthy videos. Yala is designed especially for social media videos at the optimized 6-second length.
Yala vs Animoto
Last but not least is Animoto, another online video maker. It allows you to add your own logo and offers HD videos, but they’re from the same source as Magisto. (We told you that library is overused.) Again, Animoto has longer videos in mind, so it comes with pre-built story boards to help design videos. With Yala, you don’t need to imagine a plot. You just need to pick a reaction, add some text, and you’re done.
What do you think?
There are many factors that should be addressed when comparing software, let alone video creation tools. What are your needs? What types of videos are you making? How much time can you dedicate to video creation and how much do you want to pay per month?
Yala is simple. It doesn’t have the robust editing features of other video software because it doesn’t need them. Our goal is to make video ads easier for anyone and any business. Do you want to spend hours editing or do you want to create videos in seconds? Yala is only what you need and nothing you don’t. We don’t want to spend hours on edits, and we don’t expect that you do either. So if easy, short, social media videos are the goal – Yala is for you.
