Powtoon Review

I have tested Powtoon for its characteristic way of transmitting information through simple animations, like other software such as Prezi that has its characteristic "zoom and scroll" on a slide. Powtoon takes the way in which a slide is exposed to another level with animations. I started using it personally for the occasional task for my children but I tried to include this platform in my work environment and at the beginning it was a great idea since it is a new way of capturing the attention of the public and I left behind those boring slides.
  • Its interface is really simple, which helps a lot for people who want to try this new way of making presentations.
  • It has animation templates to help the user finish the presentation faster.
  • Animations can be created freely as it is highly customizable, easy, and quick without the need to be an expert in graphic design.
  • There are a large number of backgrounds, images, audios, texts, etc. that can be added to the video presentation.
  • The web version has gotten really heavy lately. They should optimize that.
  • Creating characters is not as customizable as you think. It is a bit limited in that regard.
  • Background music is also a bit limited.
  • Although it is simple to use, it takes a bit of animation knowledge and patience to achieve proper animation.
If you want to try something different than the current ways of creating a slide to transmit information within the work area or want to present a proposal to a client, Powtoon would be ideal for doing that job. It will take a little time to learn how it works but once you get the hang of it you can do amazing and professional things.

I use Powtoon both for my own promotion and for my clients as a means to promote and communicate products and offerings across multiple platforms--social media, email, etc. We also use Powtoon internally as a way to onboard new employees in a fun way and deliver all the administrative details of each position.
  • promo
  • idea pitch
  • onboarding
  • lack of variety in characters
  • limited animations
  • lack of support for video files
I think Powtoon is the best tool to start marketing in a new company since it offers to make a video, which is very good in terms of user conversion and also is heavily promoted by all online platforms. Using Powtoon for paid ads is very effective as well.

We used Powtoon to quickly create videos that we could utilize for Google Ads YouTube campaigns. The tool enabled us to have "non-graphic designers" create quick, fun videos instead of having to rely on busy graphic designers to create videos from scratch. It saved us a lot of time and money
  • Price.
  • Easy to lean.
  • Functionality.
  • Some options only available with additional upgrade.
Powtoon can be used for showcasing videos about products/services on the company's website, as well as marketing videos that can be placed before Youtube videos to target potential customers.

It is used to create a lot of presentations and videos with professional quality. It has a friendly user-interface that makes it able to be used across the organization.
  • We can do professional HR presentations.
  • Create different kinds of videos that impress the user.
  • Create animations with a friendly interface.
  • No downloadable version.
  • Sometimes it is difficult to understand some processes in the app.
  • Export is difficult to the user.
  • The app is not collaborative.
Powtoon is well-suited for when your company needs to create a presentation that describes a company process and share it with a client. When you need to create a video and need to render, it is not very useful.
