Create stunning videos at the click of three buttons

First click copy your document or audio file, paste into Content Samurai and click create video. That’s how easy it is to create the next video for your business using the intelligence of the Content Samurai video creator.


In this Content Samurai review we are going to first discuss Content Samurai and then compare it to two other leading video creation platforms Animoto and Lumen5.

Make sure to keep reading till the bottom for details on special bonuses available.

What is Content Samurai?

Content Samurai is a video creation tool that takes audio or text you have previously created and turns it into visually appealing videos. These videos could be anything from full on training courses to compliment your written content to short and sweet promotion videos. Content Samurai takes your content and automatically finds images to compliments the words or audio. 

It really is amazing to see in action so if you haven’t already view a demo. In all honesty though sign up for the 7 day free trial to play around with the editor yourself – it looks like this.

Who are the founders?

The founders of Content Samurai is Noble Samurai who many of you digital marketers will know as the creators of Market Samurai which is their keyword and market research tool. Initially Market Samurai was their focus product and was the app they were best known for but for the last few years the focus has changed to video and Content Samurai.

This focus shows and definitely places it as one of the leading solutions for any business looking to get more into video marketing.

How to use it?

When you first log into the dashboard and click create video it will present you with the already shared image above where you have five video types you can create which include:

  1. Blog post or article
  2. Sales video
  3. Video for online course
  4. Video for social media
  5. Property listing video

I can only imagine that last property category came purely from a request from their client base so it stands to reason if you request a different video they would consider adding it for you. Never hurts to ask.

After you choose your video it then presents you with this screen to add your text (no matter which video type you choose you see this option).

After pasting in your text as you will see in the icon menu on the left the next option is to edit scenes and to do this you will work in three main areas as seen below.

Notice how it says scene 1 of 73 top right.

This was a simple blog post I created about an email marketing tool called WiseStamp and even so the video was over 10 minutes in length which is really overkill. So this editing bay is important to start refining and editing the key points of your article and then at the end add a link to your website where they can get the full content piece or link to sales page.

People’s attention spans are limited so it is good to keep these type of videos to under 5 minutes.

Once you have done your editing you also have options to add a voiceover or background music after which you can preview and then download.

Are there Up-sells?

Thankfully not. After you signup to the trial you are presented with an option to upgrade and get a 25% discount but apart from this you are not going to be bombarded by marketing offers as is so common.

Content Samurai Alternatives?

For this review today I would like to suggest two alternatives Animoto and Lumen5. Both are excellent and with Lumen5 there is a free version you can use if you don’t mind branding and lower than HD quality. 

Apart from this the tools are incredibly similar in terms of what they do and how they do it. Arguably Lumen5 is the easiest to use but it’s also the most costly but there is one area that Content Samurai outshines the competition and that is in voice tracks.

When it comes to creating content videos for YouTube, high converting Sales Videos, and videos for your Online Courses, you really need the power of a Voice Track to properly convey your message.

And Content Samurai is the only product on the market today that gives you 4 flexible Voice Track Options to choose from:

  1. Music only (No Voice Track)
  2. Record your Voice Track in the app
  3. Upload a pre-recorded Voice Track
  4. AutoVoice (Text-To-Speech)

Plus, with the brand new “Energy Boost” feature, Content Samurai is the only product in the world that allows you to boost the energy of your voice track with just 1 click of your mouse!

Do I recommend Content Samurai?

Yes, I do as it has an excellent balance of features and ease of use at the cheapest price point which is not something you see every day.

But one tip: Don’t pay full price, get the 25% discount here if you need access today and when you get an email about a promotion get onboard as savings of up to 70% on the life of your subscription are not uncommon.

We also know content Samurai to have big seasonal sales for Black Friday and at other times of the year so if you enjoy using it that would be a good time to secure an even better deal.
