What Are Videobites?
Video what now? Promotion is a big part of podcasting and can often be very time-consuming. With that in mind, we made it easy to convert audio from your Podcast into videos for social media! Videobites allow creators to create on-brand video clips from their podcasts, highlighting key episode segments and engaging users on video-based social platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
How Do They Work?
Videobites allow creators to make video files from their episodes hosted on Sounder. You can access this by visiting the Share tab of our website as a logged-in creator. File size, audio overlay, transcription, design— we do it all for you.
Start by choosing an episode to make a video clip of, specify its dimensions via square, portrait, landscape controls (related to what platform you’re posting to), specify its length, then do final editing on the transcript! After editing, you’ll receive the download link to the video file via your associated email address. It’s that easy.
How Will They Grow My Audience?
Do your podcast justice and share more than just the link on social media! 83% of consumers would consider sharing video content with their friends, says a Hubspot study. Even more, Tweets with video attracted 10x more engagements than Tweets without video! You can create 5-10 Videobites from each episode to help retain current listeners, attract new ones, and cut down on the number of tools you use to promote your podcast.
