New InVideo Pricing
InVideo is the new kid on the block in video making software.
It’s a top notch product and was launched at a top notch price of $50 and $100 per month. These prices were and remain a true reflection of the quality of the product.
However the people behind InVideo have big, big plans for the product and have revised their pricing strategy to reflect this.
You can see the new InVideo pricing in the illustration below.
There is now a Free version and a paid Business version. The paid version comes in at $20 per month or $120 per year.
Both options shares many features but the Free plan does have limitations.
Both plans have these features:
No InVideo watermark on your videos
Full Editing Features
100+ Curated Designer Templates
Standard Media Library
The significant differences between the two types of accounts are:
On the Free version the quality is 720p whereas on the Business you get the much improved 1080p which about doubles the quality of your video imaging.
Video Run Time:
The Free version limits you to a maximum video length of 5 minutes. This is OK for some type of jobs but if you want a longer video you’ll need to go for the Business version which gives you 15 minutes.
No. of Users:
The Free account is a single user account, so you can’t have other members of your team working on the account at the same time.
This against the unlimited multi user set up on the Business version.
Downloads per month:
On the Free InVideo you are limited 5 downloads per month. In fact this means 5 separate videos.
You can download your finished video and then if you’re not satisfied with the results, go back in and re-edit and then download again.
To InVideo this counts as one download. This is great as it allows you to see the finished item and polish it as much as you want.
On the paid plan you can create and download 30 different videos per month. If you are a prolific video creator this is the one for you.
A brand preset is where you can set up a range of factors particular to say your video channel.
This includes logo, colours, into and outro videos, links to your social accounts.
The Free version gives you one preset which is fine if you only have one YouTube/Facebook page etc.
The paid version gives you up to 3 presets.
The paid (Business) version allows you 5GB of storage against 1GB on the Free plan.
As you know video files can bulk up very quickly and 1GB can be used up very quickly.
But then again it depends how much video you use.
If you’re planning to sell your videos (given how easy it is to create amazing video ads with InVideo, I assume this is a must) then you’ll need the paid version.
Premium Stock Videos:
No matter how good your ideas are, if you’re using the same free stock videos from Pixabay etc, your videos run the chance of appearing a bit “samey” as many of your competitors.
You are allocated 300 stock videos per month, which averages out at about 10 per video if you use your full monthly quota of 30 videos.
Text To Speech:
While the Free plan allows you to voice your own text, only on the Business plan do you have access to the text to voice feature.
This offers over 25 languages/accents.
It is also an auto feature so there’s no worry about the timing and sequencing of the voice track.
On the Free plan you have access to a wide range of music tracks, but if you want to use your own you will need the paid version.
- To anyone I would suggest trying the free version to find your way around the the software and see just how much it delivers at no charge to you.
- If want to make the best videos, you will want to sign up for the paid version.
- The people behind InVideo are throwing a tremendous amount of effort and money behind it, with the plan for InVideo being the dominant video making software.
It’s fairly safe to assume that when new features are added, they will be added to the paid versions. This has already happened with the most recent additional features of text to speech and adding your own music.
- At the current price ($20 per month or $120 per year) this software is an absolute steal.
- Comparable software, such as Content Samurai will cost you about $49 per month and most others of any value are not much less than that.
Talking to the people behind InVideo, I believe that they are trying to create a product model along the lines of Canva, the graphic design site.
Essentially there are two options, as with InVideo, one which is free and fairly basic and the other is paid and fully featured.
Currently the paid option is about $120 per year, which sounds similar to InVideo. The difference is that Canva is $120 per user, whereas the InVideo paid option is for unlimited users.
Who is to say that InVideo pricing may move in this direction over time?
If you are considering InVideo for your business I’d recommend to get in now while the pricing is exceptionally reasonable.
