Create Cartoon Explainer Videos Easily With Toonly

Video marketing is an effective way to promote your business online.

The main challenges of using videos to promote your business online, however, is that your target audience has a limited attention span and so many other competing businesses are also using videos.

Cartoon explainer videos can be very effective not only when it comes to grabbing and keeping a viewer’s attention, but they can also be used to inform, educate, and convert viewers into prospective clients and customers, train users, simplify complex subjects, tell engaging stories, and a whole lot more! They are also great for getting your point across quickly, reducing customer support calls, and getting shared online.

Cartoon explainer videos work really well, but they can also be expensive to create. A digital agency will typically charge thousands of dollars to create a short animated video for your business, and some will even charge thousands of dollars per minute of video!

We have discovered an inexpensive and easy-to-use cartoon explainer video creation software that we are now using to create animated explainer videos in-house. This software tool is called Toonly.
