Benefits of Promo.com Premium
Promo’s video creator was created with businesses and agencies in mind. Their pricing starts at $49/month for just the basic plan which itself has some limitations.
Upgrading to a premium plan allows you to create unlimited videos since the trial only lets you do just 5.
Depending on the plan you choose, there are also other benefits to upgrading.
All premium plans let you use premium clips so that you can make eye-catching ads that convert well.
On the free trial, you’re kind of limited as to which clips you can use. You might see one of the 23 million clips and want to use it but it’s premium only. Upgrading allows you to use any clip.
You also don’t want your finished video to have a Promo.com watermark. For any brand, this would look unprofessional. Upgrading removes the watermark and on the Standard plan, you’re able to use your own watermark.
