As is usual, since first releasing the video feature of the Nifty Product Stager, we’ve been improving things. We’ve tweaked the timing for each animation and the pause at the end of each cycle.
What does this mean? It means a viewer has more time to view and take in each design.
Here’s one we just made for one of the great designers at Zazzle. We loved the cute dragon!
The Product Stager gives you a shortened bit.ly link to use when sharing the video on social media.
It leads to an auto-generated page on our new PickFromHere.com site showing all the products in the “pull” from which the video was made. They’re laid out in a product grid, with each linked to its product page on Zazzle.
Note: if you’re going to share on Pinterest, you can’t use the bit.ly link because Pinterest doesn’t allow shortened links. Instead you need the long link in the Useful copy-paste items for your share section at the bottom of the Product Stager.
Just click the link and put in your store name – you’ll have your own video in just 2 clicks. How cool is that? 😎
You could use the video you download right away on Facebook just by dragging and dropping it into a new post or in a reply. But we don’t recommend it. Why? You’ll only get HD videos that are sharp and clean if you convert to MP4 first.
For Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram, you have to convert your video to MP4 – but don’t worry, when you make your video you’re given a link to an online converter that we’ve tried, tested and recommend.
You can either provide your own link to your store in the status text or use the one provided by the product stager.
Note: At the time of writing, Facebook is experiencing the occasional glitch. If your uploaded video gets stuck at Progress 0%, cancel the upload (not the post/reply) and drag and drop it again. After maybe 20 or 30 seconds, it should jump to Progress 90% and then quickly finish. If it still doesn’t, try cancelling and re-uploading again. Four tries is the most we’ve had to do.
