How To Make Happy Birthday Video Messages?

In the past, birthday parties were reserved for family and close friends, but now with social media, everyone can be a part of it! But what about those people who live far away or are unable to attend your birthday party? This is where video messages come in handy.

Video messages allow you to communicate birthday wishes to anyone in any location even if they're not physically there with you on that special day. Creating birthday videos has never been easier. A group video of friends and family together is an amazing way to surprise anyone on their birthdays.

Here are Tips on How to Create a Birthday Video Compilation

Step 1: Create a Celebration

First, you need to set up your account and create an event page for that special birthday person. You need to create an invitation link that will be sent out to anyone you want to contribute to the video.

You need to enter the name of the birthday person and select "Birthday" for the occasion. Enter a due date for when they would like to have the birthday video message submitted to the gift link. Once you're done, it's time to invite friends and family to record birthday videos!

Step 2: Send Invite

Invite a group of friends and family to record and upload their video clips for the birthday celebrant.

You can invite as many people as possible to participate in the video, the more, the merrier! There are two ways to invite people sending a link via email or you can copy the invitation link and send it via text message, Messenger, WhatsApp, or whichever way works best for you. You can even ask people to forward the link to others, in case you don’t know all the friends of your gift recipient.

When your friends tap your birthday gift link on any device, they’ll be able to record a Happy Birthday video as well as upload pictures without having to create an account.

You will be notified via email whenever anyone responds.

Do contributors need an account to record a birthday video message?

No, only the person who's initiating the surprise birthday video needs an account.

Step 3: Collect videos and organize

All the submitted video messages, wishes and photos will be collected in your account clipboard. You can drag and drop them to your timeline where you can preview and arrange the birthday videos in any order. The final video will only include clips in your timeline.
