There are many ways you can make money online as a freelancer. You can choose to start as a graphic designer, a voice over artist, a writer, an SEO specialist, and lots more. But wait! Some of these services do require at least some level of skill and can take a long time to master. You can’t earn a dime online by offering services you don’t know how to deliver.

So, how do I create whiteboard animations easily?
In the past, whiteboard animation videos were created using complicated softwares such as Adobe After Effects, and a good level of expertise is required to achieve that. But now, there are a handful of great softwares that provides an easy interface to create your whiteboard animation videos in a few clicks. These softwares are made in such a way as even a complete beginner who has never even heard of whiteboard videos can make use of them with little or no help. All you need to do is to add images and text, and then you resize, drag, and drop to your desired location. Also, you can add some animations using these softwares.
Below are the top 3 softwares I recommend for beginners in creating a whiteboard animation video. However, most of these softwares are paid ones. You will need to purchase them in order to use. Nevertheless, some do offer a free trial before payment, and you can make use of the opportunity. Then you make payment later, that’s when convinced.
Actually, it was the first software I used to create whiteboard animation videos. You can search Google for more information about it. All you need to do in order to create a whiteboard video with this software is to login, add images (have a default and rich image library) and text, add background music or voice over, then export your HD video ready for use. If I’m not mistake, it cost just $4 for its monthly subscription, which is worth it. You can actually make more than a thousand dollars form that subscription alone if you know your ways.
