I first started using Placeit for the Mock-ups. I sell mugs and other items online as well as owning two other businesses, and I can use Placeit to promote all of them.
It is so easy to upload your designs to a mock-up and get it out there quickly. Placeit is not just for mock-up creation, though. You can also make social media videos and graphics, logos, and lots and lots of gaming bling. There are a few key points that make it a great marketing tool for my arsenal and maybe for yours, as well.
- Value If you make your own marketing graphics or videos or want to, Placeit is a great value at $14.95/month. This is for unlimited downloads. They have actually lowered their prices since I joined. The monthly price is a great value, but if choose the yearly plan, it gets even better.
And, if you don’t want to do the subscription thing, you can pay as you go or use the free templates. There are so many free templates, and they are good. Here are a couple of graphics I just created using the free template options.
2. Ease of use
it’s an easy platform to use and they keep adding more templates that are for unlimited use for a paid plan. Here are a few Placeit mock-up images I’ve created.
After you choose a template for a video or image, most of the text, colors, and images can be changed very easily. See what I mean in the video below. With all the customization options, it’s practically unlimited in what you can design with Placeit.
As an example, I used one of the Instagram templates to create a quick promo video for my clothing boutique business. The first video is the video I created starting with a template, and the second video is the template I started with.
How the templates work with videos is there are tiny video templates, maybe 5 -8 seconds long per template ,that you can add onto as you create the desired video. I’ve got three video sections in my video below. The example I started with is the first of the three video template sections I used to create my video. So you can see the basic structure is the same, but I’ve changed the template quite a lot to work for my business. I really like the idea of video template blocks that can be added together because not all social media platforms allow the same length videos. There are currently templates for Youtube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitch, OSB, Pinterest, and Twitter
Having templates to start your process really speeds up your creation time. You are able to change colors, fonts, and music on all of the templates, as well as adding components like shapes, graphics, or media uploads.
I’ve posted a short video clip of how the editing looks or works. There is no talking in the video. It’s just to give you a better understanding of how easy editing is with Placeit. The video is showing editing for a graphic, but video edits are the same but also have audio options.
