How to Turn Articles into Videos

First, let me start with a video to show you how it’s done.
You’ll also find the step-by-step directions below the video.
Step 1:
Start by copying your article/blog post into a Word doc or any text editor. Don’t forget to include the title!
Step 2:
Make sure to separate each sentence with a blank space. Remember, each sentence will become its own slide, so plan accordingly!
Step 3:
Save your document as “Text Only” or whatever other equivalent your specific program provides for saving it as a text file.
Step 4:
In your PowerPoint, go to File->Open. Open your newly saved text file containing your article. If your article does not open the way it’s shown in the video (each sentence in its own slide), then you didn’t save it in the correct format – go back and resave it.
Step 5:
Quickly style your slides according to your preference. Time-saving tip: select ALL slides to the left and style them all at the same time.
Step 6:
Record your presentation with whatever video recording software you already have, like Camtasia, Screenflow, or Jing.
Step 7:
Distribute your video to as many video sites as possible to maximize your potential for quality one way link building.

Make sure your video has a title that will catch their attention. If your video is called "My Random Video #1" it doesn’t tell you anything about the videos content and it's boring as hell. Your title should give the viewer a good idea of what it is about. Try to use keywords in your video to help it get indexed faster and make it easier to find. Ask yourself when you're looking at videos on YouTube which ones stand out for you.
