A quick introduction about what your company does/your values/mission.

1Bstories (the B stands for Billion) is a content tech startup looking to power the internet with a billion stories told in the best way we know how. Today the best way would be through vertical short-form video. Thus, we created Vidiofy.ai a generative AI tool that converts articles into reels. Publishers and content marketers can now repurpose existing text based posts into videos for social media within minutes.

Tell us about yourself?

I’m the Head Of Marketing at 1Bstories and I’ve been a marketer for almost a decade now having been deeply involved across multiple industries like Training & Development, Finance, Property Tech, and now AI SaaS. I started right out of college as a junior copywriter learning about the elements of persuasion and embedding that into writing long form sales letters for maximum conversion. As part of my work, I then studied and then taught Strategic Marketing and Paid Social Advertising methods. Then life took me to different industries all allowing me to impart my knowledge to be a lead generation expert for the verticals I was involved in.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

Burnout is real. When you don’t listen to your body willingly, it will eventually force you to listen unwillingly.

What problem does your business solve?

Video content generation for businesses producing dozens of text-heavy content every day.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

We want to help people tell stories the best way we know how, and that is through mobile short form videos.

What is your magic sauce?

We love simple. The simpler the better. And we focused heavily into making the easiest and fastest way to convert articles into reels. With AI that can happen in an instant with little involvement by the user in creating the final product.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

To help tell 1 Billion Stories globally. We want to empower the internet with content that is engaging and tell stories that need to be told in a way that reaches the most amount of people in the easiest way possible. We want to put easy and affordable video creation solutions to every storyteller in the world so that they can now be heard and seen no matter where they are right now.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

1Bstories is a 2 year old company. And for the first year and a half, we were doing something quite different in the form of Web Stories (think websites in Instagram story formats). We had to pivot in the way we help deliver content and in 6 (very tough) months, we developed a new way to do so with AI, but that took the blood, sweat, and tears of everyone involved.

How do people get involved/buy into your vision?

It’s as simple as heading to Vidiofy.ai and clicking the Try Now button. We want to show you what’s possible even before creating an account or ever having to provide your credit card details. Just try it out and see if this even makes sense. Watch the technology work in front of your eyes and then start dreaming about all the time and effort it’ll save once you start making videos daily with just 5 minutes of your day.

Right now, we best serve news publishers and content marketers that create text-based content daily or weekly and want an easy way to convert all that into a video without video editing skills or expensive software or talent. Try Vidiofy today!
