📣 Digital Storytelling Hacks: Hook Your Online Audience With 😂 Emojis, 📷 Flipagram And Other Cool 📢 Communication Tools

أكتوبر 2, 2020

Everyone has a story to tell, a life lesson to teach. Around every corner is a great story waiting to be told. And once it’s shared, no one knows the impact it will have! How many times have we seen things from a fresh perspective after learning about someone else’s story, whether we read about it online, or hear it in person?

When someone shares a story to us, we often respond by sharing an emoji to show others how we feel. Hearing someone else’s story changes us in some way, whether we realize it or not. When we like what we hear, we put usually put a symbol like a ❤️ Heart emoji after reading the story. If it makes us laugh, we put a symbol similar to a 🤣 Laughing emoji. On the other hand, when we don’t have anything to say at the moment, most of the time the 🤷 Shrug emoji will come out. That’s the impact of great storytelling.

Did you know storytelling is the oldest way to deliver a message? Our ancestors used it to preserve history, drawing images on cave walls to support their narratives. Today, storytelling takes on the form of interactive media.

Thanks to advancements in technology, we’re not just exploring stories from history or science–we’re seeing into each other’s personal lives in real-time. As we speak! With the help of social media, we’ve become the new breed of digital storytellers. We are all digital storytellers and we do digital storytelling.

Digital Storytelling is the art of telling stories using technology. As digital storytelling continues to soar as a powerful communication tool, more and more apps help storytellers share their thoughts in creative and inspiring ways.

In the following sections, we go over some of the most popular digital storytelling apps today, beginning with Flipagram.

Launched as a free app in November 2013, Flipagram’s mission is to give everyone a platform to create and share powerful digital stories, visual tales that inform, entertain, and inspire.

With over 200 million people already having become Flipsters (the name given to users of Flipagram), it’s hard to ignore this juggernaut of a social media platform. Yes, it is now a social media platform! Flipagram has quickly become a go-to communication for influencers, creators, artists, and users. If you want to share powerful digital stories, you know where to go… Flipagram!

Add Emojis To Your Flipagram

2. Get the emojis, you want to add. Doing this is very easy- go to Emojiguide. Once you’re there, type the emoji you want to use on the search bar.

Create Emoji Videos Using Flipagram

Halloween

Use the 🎃 Pumpkin emoji, the 💀Skull emoji and the 🖤 Black Heart emoji to create a Halloween-inspired Flipagram! Since Halloween is coming up, why not make a cool Flipagram of you in your Halloween costume with some cool music playing in the background like Thriller by Michael Jackson or the iconic Ghostbusters theme?

Bestie Birthday

Give your BFF something special and very different for her birthday this year! Tell her she is a kween by surprising her with a Flipagram of all your photos together. Include the 👑 Crown emoji (of course), along with other details of your bestie’s personality, like if she’s into photography, put the 📷 Camera emoji, if she likes sunglasses, there better be a 🕶️ Sunglasses emoji in your vid, or if she’s got a green thumb, post photos of your friend with a 🌻Flower emoji. Make sure her fave songs are playing in the background, too!

 

Flipagram Of The Month

Keeping your social media feed fresh can be a constant struggle. You need to always be on your toes, spicing things up, creating quality content. If you don’t have the time or the resources to shoot your own videos from scratch, there are plenty of ways to create an engaging feed with a cool aesthetic with the use of Flipagram!

Why not create a Flipagram of the month featuring important moments in your life over the past 30 days? Make it fun and engaging and relatable- even a touch of humor can spark engagement and shares, like posting a photo of the muffins you baked even if it turned out wrong.

Also, insert a 🤦‍♂️Facepalm emoji or a 😂 Laughing Crying emoji to add some humor. Don’t forget to include funny background music- put that all in, we’re sure it will be a hit with your followers!

Whatever message you want to send, remember it must be consistent with your brand. If you want to project yourself as a stylish New Yorker, maybe you should not give the 💩Poop emoji a second laugh, even if you’re trying to be endearingly dorky. You get my drift?

 

Flipagram Downsides

Flipagram is a lot of fun, but it has its own downsides, too. If you’re a perfectionist with your videos, it might disappoint you from time to time because transitions between photos can be jumpy. Some users also complain about the pre-set musical clips music offered by Flipagram, the music offered is only available in 30-second clips, although you users can upload their own clips if they like.

If you are okay with Flipagram, then that’s great! But if those limitations are deal-breakers for you, there are tons of other apps in the market to fit your style, and we’d be more than glad to tell you all about them.

 

VivaVideo

Make Emoji Stories Using VivaVideo

Fangirl

Got a collection of music apparel and music merchandise from the thousands of artists, bands and groups you love? Why not take photos, videos, put them all together, and make a fun video montage out of it? Jazz it up with a groovy 🎶 Music emoji in your post! Keep the good vibes flowing by putting a 😊 Smile emoji and a 💋 Kiss emoji in there, too.

Same Day Edit – Social Media Style

We know what a same-day edit is, it is an edit by a skilled editing team on the day of a particular event. The editing team takes photos and videos during the event, then posts them on the day of the event.

Who says you can’t do the same? Why not practice your editing skills by taking photos and videos of an event you’re going to with the VivaVideo app? You’ll definitely bring something new to the table – VivaVideo comes with a ton of filters, cool effects, and animated text, features that a traditional DLSR camera does not have a lot of.

Try not to go too far with it, too, though. If the event isn’t too formal, like maybe a casual birthday party of a close friend, include fun emojis in your photos and vids. Symbols like the 😆 Laugh emoji, or 😉 Wink emoji are perfect, but 💩Poop emoji – maybe not. Steer away from emojis that might give mixed reactions, and you’ll be fine.

Fall Fun

Who says the only way to celebrate Fall is by going outdoors? There are many ways to enjoy the autumn season in the comfort of one’s home – you can carve pumpkins or decorate your place in seasonal hues of orange, yellow, and brown.

And while you’re at it, why not document it! Try VivaVideo’s Morandi or Kira filter to give your photos warm, rich Autumn tones, or if you’d like to give a Fall-inspired feel to all your photos, the Background section of the app. While working on our autumn stories, we gushed over the fall foliage background, the desert background and the striking but simple plain wood background. We’re sure you will, too!

As you move through the app, you’ll see many bonus features that can only be accessed by upgrading. When you avail of the VIP Membership, you can use all the themes, remove the VivaVideo watermark, upload videos longer than 5 minutes, and a lot more! You’re charged $6.50 a month or $31.60 a year. Some people see this as a big downside. We say, if you can afford it, and you think it will really help your online stories, go for it!

 

Meipai

Are you a girly girl? Do you have more pink and purple stuff at home than you can count? Are you crazy about clothes and makeup?

If you tick all of those boxes, we’re pretty sure you’ll love Meipai. Meipai is a video-sharing app created by Meitu, a tech company best known for its selfie-specialty smartphones and image editing apps.

Meipai was launched in 2014 and quickly became very popular. In fact, by  June 2017, had 152 million monthly active users.

In the App store, Meipai is described as a “safe and  friendly video community for women to share their lives.” It also describes Meipai as a “gathering place for girlfriends, a place you can chat with other girls, find solutions to your problems, listen to each other, and share in each other’s interests. Everything you want to say, everything you want to learn, everything you want to see is right here.”

Suffice it to say, you won’t find crashing car filters or football field backgrounds on Meipai. Think of themes and effects with heroes, villains, fairies, and princesses.

If you are into those types of things, then Meipai is for you, and we are sure you will have fun with it!  Meipai can turn a raw mobile video into a beautiful music video, short video, or classic movie with the girliest of emojis, text, sound, and music! Great for kids but we can also think of other adults who’d love to experiment with this, too!

If that piqued your interest, check out a complete list of Meipai’s features below.

 

Features Of Meipai

– 50 video effects

– 12 filters

– Five minutes of recording time

– 100 music clips to choose from

– Popular brands like L’Oreal, Disney, Maybelline, Snickers, ELLE, Victoria’s Secret and Adidas have run campaigns on the apps.

Make Emoji Stories Using MeiPai

Fashionista Friday

Want to grow your social media engagement? Post relevant content with hashtags for each day of the week! For example, why not have a Fashionista Friday! Make a video of yourself in distinct looks. Wear stuff people rarely see you wear – if you haven’t worn that cowboy hat in ages, now’s the type to whip it out! Put a 🤠 Cowboy emoji on the top or bottom of the screen to spice up your content and add to the cowboy look!

Tutor Me

Video is fast becoming the go-to content type for generating engagement on social media. Everywhere you go, you see people posting videos on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc. But if you really want to catch people’s attention, video tutorials is a good way to go.

Video Tutorials

Why video tutorials? Tutorials have the distinct advantage of being immediately valuable and actionable to your target audience. They don’t have to be long, something as short as 30 seconds is good enough.

You can shoot the video with your camera, and use Meipai to add filters, text, frames, and special effects like emojis. Try to keep your content as upbeat as possible. After all, you’ve only got a few seconds to catch people’s attention, so try to lay off the 😥Sad emoji or 😔Pensive emoji for a bit, unless you’re using them humorously.

 

Dubsmash

Dubsmash It With Emojis

Movie Magic

Dubsmash a line from your favorite movie. Once you’ve recorded it, add an appropriate emoji to your Dub to highlight its theme, and make the video much more appealing.

For example, remember the iconic line from “Notting Hill?” “I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” Why not put a ❤️ Heart emoji or a 🥺 Pleading emoji on your Dub for a more dramatic effect? Sync the theme of the line you are mimicking with the color and type of emoji. Your followers will love it!

Dubsmash Duo

Or trio while you’re at it! Most users produce solo Dubs, but there’s no reason why you can’t make Dubs with families and friends! The more, the merrier, right? Gather some of your favorite lines from movies or TV series about friends, call up a bestie or two, and just have fun with it!

Movies And TV Shows About Friendship

Mean Girls, Clueless, and Gossip Girl are a few movies and TV shows special in their own way, and they deserve to be relived and reenacted with a special person. So if you’ve been looking for an excuse to reach out to a friend with whom you’ve lost touch, now’s a great time to do so.

Before you post it on your Dubsmash profile, why not add a few fun emojis to bring extra meaning and dazzle to your video? Maybe an 👊Oncoming Fist emoji or 🙌Raising Hands emoji to show solidarity? As always, the floor is yours!

 

Animoto

Jazz Up Your Animoto Vids With Emojis

Quotable Quotes

Okay, we know. Quotable quotes can be cheesy, but if done correctly, can be effective, and can resonate with your target audience. Going with that thought, since one of Animoto’s strongest features is its gorgeous templates, why not post your favorite quotes and use an Animoto template as a background?

Relatable Topics

If you want to increase your social media following by posting quotes, we suggest you focus on topics many can relate to- falling in love, failure, work, family etc. Don’t forget to drop an emoji or two to lighten up your content! A 💔 Broken Heart emoji at the end of a quote about heartbreak, or a 🍿 Popcorn emoji if your quote is from your favorite movie.

Win With Emojis

Everyone loves free stuff. Holding contests on your social media accounts is a good way to spice up your content and tell your story. For example, if you recently learned how to cook, why not give away cooking utensils on your social media videos? Remember to add emojis to your text to draw attention to it. If you’re talking about food, a 🥣 Bowl With Food emoji will surely brighten up your content.

 

Wondershare Filmorago

Wondershare Filmorago is a simple and fun app that contains essential tools needed to make a beautiful video. With Filmorago, you can add lots of magical effects to your videos, like stickers, filters and you can convert your screenshots and photos into videos while adding text and music. It’s not as fancy as the other tools, but it’s got its own charm.

What we also really liked about Filmorago is its non-existent time limit, it does not have a time limit on the length of the video you can edit. With this tool, you can make your online stories as long as you want them to be.

Features Of Wondershare Filmorago

Check out the app’s other features here:

– Wide range of filters and overlays to help you make beautiful edits to your video.

– Royalty-free video effects, audio files, and stock videos and images.

– Wide range of filters and overlays to make your videos more appealing.

– Simple drag-and-drop interface.

– Over 100 cool visual effects.

– Speed control – time-lapse and slow-motion support.

– In-house Wondershare Filmorago video editing academy.

– Monthly contests for its members

– Wondershare experts are available 24/7 to help users out.

A resounding complaint about the app is that it has no effect or transition editor. This is the only feature that we feel is missing; with it, this app would be even better. But it’s got a lot of other cool stuff, like royalty-free music, cool visual effects, etc.

 

Add Emojis To Your Wondershare Creations

Speaking of effects, we gave Wondershare a test run, and we tried to add emojis to our videos, (because you know, emojis is life), and out of all the apps, Wondershare’s process is faster and more precise than the other apps!

Why not see for yourself? Look at how we did it here:

1. Import a video. Click on Full Feature Mode.

Make Emoji Stories Using Wondershare Filmorago

Wonder Facts With Emojis

Just because they’re your followers does not mean they know everything about you. Some of your Facebook friends are people you’ve known for a year, while others you’ve known for 10 years! So why not even the playing field by creating a “25 Fun Facts About Me,” video with the Wondershare Filmorago?

Include at least one emoji per fact to give your content a cute twist, and to enhance what you’ll be talking about. For example, for fact number 2, if you want to say you love to dance, insert a 💃 Woman Dancing emoji, or if you enjoy gardening, add a 🌷 Tulip emoji, 🌺 Hibiscus emoji, or 🌸 Cherry Blossom emoji.

Make Your Daily Posts Wonderful

Sometimes, we focus so much on making beautiful posts; we forget about frequency! Don’t forget to update your followers with short but fun Wondershare videos about what’s happening with your life. Wondershare is so easy to use, we’re sure you’ll be able to post at least one video a day.

Before you end your video, to get more people looking at what you did, end it with “tag a friend,” blurb and an emoji at the end.

Tag A Friend

The more people tagged in your “Tag a friend” post, the more engagement the post will get! For example, if you worked out at the gym today, post a picture of yourself working out, maybe a quote or two, then end it with “Tag a friend who needs to hear this today,” along with a 🙌 Raising Hands emoji to virtually high-five or high-ten, (if you count all your fingers), your followers.
