    The difference between a quality video to just a video presentation with images and text slides is huge in terms of conversions. So here are 4 sources for creating stunning videos that really make the difference, for free or for pennies-

    Goanimate.com
    online service that allows you to easily create nice and funny animation videos with simple drag and drop tools. The free version doesn't allow downloading the video, but you can run and record it.

    sparkol.com
    whiteboard video with the effect of the hand that draws and writes. You need to download and install the software, which is very easy to use, and there's a 7-days free trial.

    Animoto.com
    A well known one, a lot of cool video templates you can use with images, footages and text. The free version allows up to 30 seconds videos and limited features, but they also have pretty cheap plans.

    Flixpress.com
    A collection of video templates you can choose from and mix to one video. Most templates prices start from 1$ and you'll need about 4-6 for a 1 minute video.

    Most include voiceover recording, text to speech or soundtrack options but you can always take care of that part with windows movie maker.

    If you know any other good ones please post them on this thread and I'll update the OP to include them.

    Prezi (available online and desktop version) for cool animated presentations!
    It can do awesome things if you know how to.
    I am learning now!

    Thanks 10zen, checked that, but it looks more like a presentation tool, can you also make videos with that?
