Boston, Mass. – November 18, 2018 – GetResponse, the global innovator in digital and email marketing, today announced it has expanded its digital marketing portfolio with the introduction of “Beam,” an app that makes it easy for anybody to create high production value videos, animated slideshows, and photo collages and promote them on social media. Beam was designed for small business owners and novice digital marketers that don’t have the time, budget or advanced skills to create high quality, customized online visual marketing campaigns.
Without requiring any design skills, users can quickly and easily take existing photos and images, insert them into one of more than 150 eye-catching templates, apply stunning visuals, graphics and compelling text, and customize the videos, slideshows and collages to reflect their brand. The visuals are easily uploaded to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. For further inspiration, Beam provides insight on what’s trending online and features analytics for tracking and continuously improving the performance of online marketing campaigns. Beam is available as a free app, or for businesses that require advanced features and functions, the pro app is available through a subscription.
“We thought jumping on the video marketing craze required hours of time and a big budget but after using Beam for a few hours, we were up and running with our first video marketing campaign,” said Krista Liebmann, VP of Communications, Rootopia. “With Beam, our videos look professional and they’re already driving traffic and sales. We’re also able to drive more successful cross-channel campaigns that boost awareness and sales.”
