About a month ago, I discovered an app that I can use only on my Smartphone called Ripl. It’s easy to use and allows your creative mind to work within its limits to create videos you can use to help promote your books.

I have used Ripl to make 12 videos so far, and I enjoy the simplicity of it. You can, of course, upgrade to gain access to more styles and music, but even the free version is quite valuable.

To get a better sense of the videos I’ve made using the app, I have created a video for YouTube where you can see 6 different video styles. Here is the link: https://youtu.be/usSVn7nDBiI

I hope this helps you to become more creative in marketing your books.
