Make Free Video Intros With Flixpress

Note: I’ve received a few emails saying the support at Flixpress is pretty bad. Therefore, I recommend only using the free version. If anyone at Flixpress reads this, then I can supply emails of disgruntled buyers. Apparently, your support is not very supportive!

I do quite a lot of video marketing as a way of promoting offers, y’know the sort of thing, usually Clickbank, JVZoo, and Warrior+ products and sometimes I need a bit more of a polished look to my videos. I use several different YouTube accounts to keep genres together and stay relevant to that channel. It’s not really good practice to promote a health product on the same channel as a promotion for list building techniques…it all gets a bit confusing – for me anyway!

So, a different intro for each channel makes sense. I’m talking about those little 5 second intros that showcase your brand or website. You can of course go to Fiverr.com and get one made for, well, a fiver, but why do that when you can get one for free? It doesn’t have to be complicated, just a quick opening announcement of who you are. The shorter the better.

I came across Flixpress.com which is an online video production studio. It’s about as easy as it gets too! Just register an account (it’s free) and away you go. Below is a breakdown of the process to make one of these free intros. I’ve gone for the shortest playback available which is around 10 seconds…a little long but you can crop it in your video editor if you’re able to do so…if not, a 10-second intro isn’t the end of the world.

Firstly, go to Flixpress and sign up for an account (don’t give them any bank or Paypal details). Once you receive an email confirmation, you’re all good to go.

Now log in and go to the ‘Automated Template‘ tab.

This will now take you to where the magic happens. Here you will find a list on the left-hand side showing the types of video that Flixpress can produce. The one we’re interested in is the ‘Free Templates‘ one at the bottom of the list.

All the other templates are ‘paid for‘ but are still pretty cheap and you have total control over the text inside those templates. People on Fiverr charge $5, $10, $20 and upwards simply by buying the Pro version of Flixpress at $50 and then simply take orders, hop over here and produce a video in minutes. (Note: See note at top of post)r

But I digress…after clicking the ‘Free Templates’ text, we move onto the free videos.

The next screen brings up 9 free options (only 8 seen here, but there are 9…promise!) all with differing themes. Some are quite long for an intro, but I guess if you have a long video, a good introduction is probably merited.

My videos can range from 2 to 15 minutes and it depends if the product needs more promotion. But on average they’re around 5 minutes so an introduction is fine between 5 and 10 seconds.

I’ve gone for the Cinema Info template video which is the shortest here…and it’s the simplest and quickest to produce. Clicking ‘Next‘ will bring you to the instructions page which is so easy!

The blurb also tells you that if you don’t save your video to your computer, it will be held at Flixpress for 10 days (free accounts) and then be deleted.

After going through the instructions (if you did!) you will need to click the little box to say you have read them and then go on to ‘Customize Now

You will then come to the video production page…believe me this takes all of 10 seconds to produce!

Choose your colour scheme, pick the Top Line and Bottom Line and you’re done! After doing that you can preview the video, but it’s so simple I’ll just go on to ‘Place Order

There are options to add HD for $2 and extend the hosting of your new video for $1, but as we’re going to save the video to our desktop, and it’s only a few seconds long, we won’t bother with them and just go ahead and place the order. The next page will show you that your video is processing and is held in a queue. No need to wait, just go into your orders page and you’ll see this below.

The one on the left is the video processing, the one next to it was a video I did 5 days ago. (note the typo in the image below…Flexipress? Where did that come from? it’s Flixpress of course!)

When the thumbnail reads ‘Click for Preview‘ you can download it to your computer (it will be in mp4 format). It will only be about 600kb in size so won’t take long to download. Now just put your new intro at the front of your videos and you have a decent, quick intro that costs nothing to produce.

Below is the quick intro I did that took all of a minute to produce and download! Of course, if you wanted a more professional video, then you may have to look elsewhere.  I’ve had tons of emails saying how poor Flixpress is with support and refunds. Don’t give them your payment details whatever you do! (I’m not affiliated with them). My intros need to be short and sweet and this is where Flixpress comes in so useful….not to mention free!

  1. ATENCIÓN POR FAVOR!!!! Quiero denunciar a esta empresa está haciendo fraudes. Yo me inscribí a uno de sus planes y como ví que era una estafa, decidí solicitar se me diera de baja. Al mes siguiente veo que me siguen cobrando. Me envían la renovación junto la opción de darme de baja, lo vuelvo hacer y me siguen cobrando. Tengo las pruebas para quien las quiera.

    • Tino, sea lo que sea con lo que pagó, tarjeta de crédito, PayPal, banco, contáctelos con los detalles ahora para detener los pagos. Intenté ponerme en contacto con Flixpress personalmente, pero es imposible. Sus páginas de Youtube, Twitter y Facebook no se han actualizado durante 2 años. Todos los correos electrónicos enviados a su soporte quedan sin respuesta. Creo que están tan muertos como un Dodo. Asegúrese de comunicarse con el método de pago que utilizó para detener más cargos.

      Son una pérdida de tiempo e insto a las personas a que no les den detalles de pago.
      Espero que lo resuelvas pronto y gracias por tu comentario.

      ATTENTION PLEASE!!!! I want to report this company is doing fraud. I signed up for one of their plans and as I saw that it was a scam, I decided to request to be unsubscribed. The following month I see that they continue to charge me. They send me the renewal together with the option to unsubscribe, I do it again and they continue to charge me. I have the evidence for whoever wants it.

      Tino, whatever you paid with, credit card, PayPal, bank, contact them with the details now to stop payments. I’ve tried to contact Flixpress myself but it’s impossible. Their Youtube, Twitter, and Facebook pages have not been updated for 2 years. All emails sent to their support go unanswered. I think they are as dead as a Dodo. Make sure you contact the payment method you used to stop further charges.

      They are a waste of time and I urge people not to give them any payment details.

      Hope you get it sorted soon, and thanks for your comment.

    • I wish I could help, but I haven’t used Flixpress for some time now. I tried to log in to my account but it doesn’t recognize my details. I can only suggest you bombard their support team with requests, but as I found out a few years ago, they are experts at ignoring customers.

      I hope you get a result in the near future…this is a very frustrating company to deal with!

  3. Thank you very much for this educative post. I have learnt quite a lot. You started by letting your readers know that you’re not affiliated to Flixpress. You chided them for their customer support not being supportive. You then recommended the free version as a way of not only avoiding costs but also as a way of not having issues customers complain of. I believe it’s in the interest of the company to take care of the areas of complaint by customers.

    Be careful!

    • Sorry to hear that Denis. I’ve put a warning in the above post about the paid service from Flixpress. I’ve only ever used the free version, and I recommend others do too.

      Thanks for notifying us of your experience.

  5. ABSOLUTE SCAM! STAY AWAY!
    I joined Flixpress as a member and the membership fee was $70 per month. They accidentally charged my credit card twice and now they dont want to refund me the money! I contacted their customer service and they were rude. They said I clicked on the pay button twice and so they cant do anything about it. They are absolute FRAUD! Stay away!

    • Whoa, Sam…that’s shocking! Can’t you contact your credit card to null the other payment? There must be some protection offered by your credit card company? As I’ve only used the free version of Flixpress I haven’t run across their support and I see that certain things have changed, such as pricing and plans, since I wrote this post a few years ago.

      I looked around a few Flixpress review websites and it seems the software is good but the support stinks. Keep pressing them (as well as your credit card company) until you get the right result.

      Let me know how you get on, I may need to update my review warning of their support if your problem hasn’t been resolved.
