Type in your website URL and click Next.
If you do not have a website or topic, or would like to continue without one, click on 'Continue without website.'
Step 4 | Add/edit description and click 'Generate video posts'
You will be taken to a screen to verify your information. Please make sure to provide full, accurate information in order to get great videos & posts that reflect your business or topic. The more accurate and comprehensive business description you provide, the better video results you will get.

Step 5 | Take a break, drink a coffee
You will be taken to a countdown while one month's worth of AI video posts are being generated. That's a month a minute of videos, music, captions & social posts! Faster than the time it takes most people to drink a cup of coffee.
