Want to Speed Up Your Business Admin? Then Consider Using Automated Business Processing Bots

Can AI Be Used to Produce Videos?

Can AI Be Used to Produce Videos?As Bots, AI and Natural Language Sequencing Grows in Popularity, Can They Be Used to Produce Videos?

So to Answer the Question; Can AI Be Used to Produce Videos?

Yes, our AI powered bots are now producing videos. They use website copy to automatically produce the script and. They then select keywords from that script to select images from a vast collection of photos and can even find suitable music from similar music databases.

Over time the system’s AI learns to improve image selection.

These videos are ideal as video teasers to take someone from an online ad or social media to a full webpage where the sales funnel or conversion process can continue.

This type of video is proving very successful in attracting initial attention.

Where a longer video is required we recommend making a series of mini videos that can then be run in sequence. About one minute seems to be the ideal length for each min video.

Want to see the quality of these videos?

Here are a couple we made earlier.

Price Anchoring is a pricing strategy based on the work of Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky 

If you want to sell a watch for £2,000 and the best way to get people to recognise its value is to place it next to a £10,000 watch. This will price anchor it.

The reason why this works is a common cognitive bias called anchoring. Anchoring works because we tend to fixate on the first price we see and reference value on that when evaluating the value of similar products or services. In some senses Anchoring distorts our sense of value. Clearly the above works best if the potential purchased sees the £10,000 watch before they see the lower priced one. Continue reading
