Choosing how you want to create your video
With Viddyad, you can create videos for your business using templates.
This is for people who are interested in a quick and easy way to create video ads.
With the Express option:

All you have to do is choose an example video and replace the text and clips/images with your own to customize your video ad to match your company’s message. All videos are 15 seconds.
How do I create a video?
When creating a video using one of Viddyad’s expertly-made templates, all content is interchangeable. This means that you can swap out clips and images in any of the videos on the website with your own uploaded content. Alternatively, you can search through our database of over 80m+ stock clips/images to find the content that best suits your business.
I’ll show you how:
1. Select a template.
In the example below, I have chosen ‘Pursuit.’
2. Select one of the tiles.
3. Select ‘Replace Clip.’
4. Select Premium and search for clips/images.
Here, as an example, I have searched ‘Chiropractor.’
5. Preview each clip and add it to the video.
Now you have a brand new video ad with different clips and images to match your creative vision! Be sure to purchase your video and start sharing it with your customer so that you can maximize your company’s reach and impact.
To collaborate with your coworkers:
Simply create a generic password and share it with your team. That way, everyone will be able to log into the Viddyad account and work on the video!
