If you have been around my site for long, you will know that I am a HUGE fan of using video in your online marketing business. This is because, in a few words, it is effective and will bring you more success! You will see that I intersperse videos all over this site.
Here are my exact thoughts on video:
“Using video is a POWERFUL communication tool that will help you attract MORE traffic, get you MORE leads, assist in developing STRONG business relationships with people, and of course, making MORE sales after you have trust and credibility within your niche”
Pretty strong words and thoughts, or?
There are a number of video creator tools on the market. So many choices and price points. If you are brand new and considering buying a video creator tool, you may wonder which direction you should go in, as in choosing this software tool or another.
Today I will review this video creation tool, which is one that I use on a regular basis (I have more I use as well) that may help you in making your decision on which program to select.
You may even have come here BECAUSE you are looking for reviews of this particular video creator!
If this is the case, I am here to tell you that you are in luck, because I am going to provide you with all the information you will need to make an informed choice.
I DO use this tool on a regular basis (I have others I use as well) and think that this one is worth a “hard look,” because it is THAT good. Have a look at my review below and judge for yourself!
THE PRODUCT: EXPLAINDIO VIDEO CREATOR 2.0
I will go through the basics you need to know about the software, and from there drill down to provide you more details, some sample videos, add in some of the free training available right from Youtube, and then conclude and give it my rating overall at the end.
Let’s get started…
NAME OF PRODUCT: Explaindio Video Creator 2.0
DEVELOPER: Andrew Darius
COST OF PRODUCT: $57 USD per year
MY RATING: 9/10
WHAT IS EXPLAINDIO VIDEO CREATOR 2.0
This is the second version of this software, as you may have already surmised by the “2.0” in the software name. The first version was introduced in 2014, and this one in 2015.
When it first came out, it represented a real leap in the capabilities such tools have, in that you could have much more versatility in the kinds of videos you created and get them done quickly.
This second version builds on the first, and in addition to the creator software, there are now a HUGE number of features in the software itself and with the available add-ons and shoulder type services available to purchase under the EXPLAINDIO brand.
I will not go into them all, it is beyond the scope of this review, but let’s just say that if you hand pick the add-ons you need, just about ALL of your video creation, storage, and distribution requirements will be met…
WHAT DOES EXPLAINDIO VIDEO CREATOR DO?
Outside the obvious, as in “it creates videos,” this tool separates itself from the others through the WAY they are created, the many options you have to dazzle up a video easily, and then get it rendered and published/on the market quickly…
What Kind Of Videos Can I Create…
This is a software program that almost does it all. You can combine animation, whiteboard, HD video, text, and audio using Explaindio.
If you choose to do more, the add-ons will expand on the already powerful out of the box capabilities of this software.
You are likely thinking that a software combining these elements of video production would be hard to use, am I right?
Even someone who is BRAND NEW to video creation will find the drag and drop elements found in the dashboard of the software are easy to understand and use.
Inside the software purchase package you will find:
- Explaindio Video Creation Software
- Access to Explaindio closed facebook group
- 200 Pre-Done Animated Slides
- 100 Full HD Background VideosOver 500 drawn whiteboard images
- 800 Doodle Sketch ImagesOver 500 drawn whiteboard images
- Over 500 drawn whiteboard images

- An easy to use drag and drop dashboard
- 300 Stock Images
- 6 Animated Characters
- 300+ Fonts

How Will It Help You?
If you are using another video creator tool such as VideoMakerFX or something more upscale, you likely will have to mix elements that are available with each somehow to come up with a professional final video product.
You could use another high-end video editing software to edit your videos and mix and match various elements, such as a little animation with HD video, but that can be frustrating and waste a lot of your time in the day, not to mention it can be quite expensive.
This also can be a really tedious exercise in futility. Unless you have something like EXPLAINDIO VIDEO CREATOR 2.0 that is what you will be forced to do, however!
I have tried the “moving from one program to the next to get to a good product route,” so I can tell you from my experience this is not fun.
It takes a LOT of time, and getting every element to blend together so the end product looks good is not an easy thing…
This is why video creators can charge so much money, even today. The process is daunting to many people, they would rather outsource the task or just not combine the elements.
With Explaindio Video Creation 2.0 there is no need to do either the tedious creation using different software nor to outsource and pay top dollar for a professional video.
This is why you have noticed that until the last couple of years, not a lot of people were combining the video elements together…
With the introduction of Explaindio Video Creator 1 and 2.0, this was all behind us as online marketers, and now you can do it all without a lot of effort.
Now you see more and more mixed elements videos, and they look GOOD!
You can add a bit of animation in front of a HD video, throw some text on the slide, add in an intro and outro, and in a few minutes have a COMPLETELY unique video looking like it cost $1000s to create.
Yes, it’s THAT GOOD!
Why would you want more elements in a video?
One of the truths today more than ever is that the attention span of people is ever shorter. They want to get their information quickly and in small bites.
People are easily distracted. Even in the case of videos, this holds true…
While watching your video, they may be attracted to another related video showing on the side page of your video page (i.e. as with Youtube), or maybe to an ad on the page, or perhaps someone else grabs their attention.
You see what I am talking about?
Think about yourself, Do any of the above scenarios hit close to home? You as a marketer need to look at marketing from the customer or viewer perspective, accounting for the “what ifs” as much as possible.
THIS is the reason for mixing elements. It is now commonly done, and is not such an eye-catcher as before, but it certainly does still work, and work darn good too!
When you add unexpected elements like some animation segments in front of a whiteboard segment, along with maybe a HD background in parts, throw in a Hollywood style intro or outro, plus some good transitions, you can keep their attention on your video, or also pull their attention BACK to your video.

OK, I think that you have a clear picture from this review and make your own decision. I summarize things below and then offer a link to a bonus page for this product, as well as a note on some negative things that have been floating around about this product (not about the performance, it is more a matter of a marketing disagreement)…
Let’s finish up!
So do I think Explaindio Video Creator 2.0 is worth the price and will it help your video creation?
In a word: Yes!
The Explaindio software tool is excellent to create videos that support your marketing program. Even if you are very experienced this tool can help because it is quick, fast and makes you can churn out professional looking videos fast.
Even if you are very experienced this tool can help because it is quick, fast and makes you can churn out professional looking videos fast.
For those of us like me who are NOT that experienced, this makes our lives so much easier…
With this software, you do not have to be an expert. You just can create good looking videos that are effective, and get on with all the other aspects of your online marketing business.
For many of us, it is impossible to produce such high quality professional videos without this type of software. The fact that these videos can be created in a matter of minutes is simply amazing.
If like me, you own VideomakerFX and Easy Sketch Pro, using Explaindio does what both do and without having to use the two. It is a matter of convenience.
Also, you have a lot more flexibility with Expaindio so your videos will look unique compared to many of the other videos published, which have a certain sameness because they have been created using the two programs I mention above. To be honest,
Youtube is full of videos made with both Easy Sketch Pro and especially the VideomakerFX video creation software, even I can recognize the themes.
The videos you create with Explaindio will stand out and captivate your audience, keeping them watching the whole video. That is exactly what you want!
One of the factors in ranking on Youtube is whether your viewers watch all or most of your video. If they leave too soon, it sends a signal that your video is not really a quality video and that will adversely affect your ranking.
If you are starting or already producing videos for your marketing program this is one of those tools that you will use really often and you won’t regret having purchased it.
NOTE: Buyers of the first version of this software were quite put out that this version was released less than a year later (7 or 8 months as I understand) but they were not grandfathered into the upgrade.
This meant that they had an option to pay a reduced first annual subscription fee then thereafter would be forced to pay the $57 annual fee like everyone else.
This caused a lot of negative blowback to the developer and for the program. Many IM folks refused to sell or use the program because of this.
The business model this developer has used for version 2 of the software is not the same as many developers have used in the past. BUT think about most of the big software tools available these days and you will see that they are ALL going to this business model.
I do understand the consternation of those buyers of the first version had however, and would say that this is a side issue to the fact that the tool itself is a very good and easy to use tool.
The add-ons are many and I will be reviewing some of these as I go along, mainly the ones I think offer a good value for the price, as this tool does.
I just wanted to be objective on this and let everyone know as complete a picture of a situation as possible to you, the most important part of what I do!
