Make Animation Videos That Work
(In Half The Time)
3 years boiled down to 50 lessons
If you are working with animation video, and you haven’t really taken the time to explore new tools like Vyond, then your absolutely leaving time and money on the table.
Chances are good that you’re facing an all-too common dilemma: how to create videos that look professional without spending too much time or having to hire someone to do it for you.
Maybe you worry that to do so you’ll have to build everything from scratch or know a lot about visual design. But creating great animation videos is much more about a good story, a solid process and a strong tool to make it come to life.
On top of the worries around lacking design skills, you probably worry that you’ll spend all your time in Vyond, creating videos. Truth is, once you get the hang of the program, you’ll be able to reuse elements, scenes and whole sequences to scale your time.
Animation videos are more popular than ever before and the format is definitely here to stay. With Vyond, the ability to create visual storytelling is within anyones reach – no matter if you create for e-learning, marketing, education or entertainment.
Sadly, it’s easy to end up with a half-baked video – by bloating your scenes, mismatching styles and not utilising easy-to-learn workarounds.
That’s why I created Go Beyond Vyond.

How I grew my business with Vyond
Vyond (or GoAnimate as they were called back then) changed my life.
It might sound radical, but it's actually true.
Back when I was still in college, I worked for a large accounting company. A colleague asked me for help around finishing up a video, she was creating.
The tool she used was GoAnimate (the old name for Vyond), and I started getting good at the tool. Before long, I had finished the video, and it was promoted by the company and got 60.000+ views on Youtube.
I was hooked. On the side, I started making videos for a friend’s web agency, where he’d bundle a website with an explainer video for the customer’s front page.
Before long, the orders were lining up, and I got way too busy to keep up with his video requests and decided to raise my prices and go solo. Webly was born, my very own video agency and first entrepreneurial adventure.
Fast forward a couple of years, we were 3 full-time employees and 4 part-timers. Over time, I realised that I enjoyed online teaching more than serving clients, so I decided to close Webly and go all-in on creating courses based on our combined learnings as an agency.
Vyond and I have come a long way since I started, and I’m so excited to see the tool improve and their customer base grow at such a rapid pace.
Now, I’m ready to share everything I’ve learned along the way.
"A very good and well structured course that takes you from a beginner to learning some quite advanced techniques that stretches Vyond to it’s limits. Clear and concise, I highly recommend this course if you want to create engaging animations. The course gives you some great project ideas and the tutorials are well paced and easy to understand."

"The course was amazing and delivers what was written on the tin. With no Vyond initial knowledge, it allowed me to evaluate if this tool was really something I could use to match my needs. The presentation was great and the different tips very helpful. Thank you for this nice delivery."
Who is the course for
E-learning professionals, business owners and marketers
This course is for people who value efficient production and professional output. It is not for the traditionally-educated Adobe-animator who needs even more layers of creative freedom than Vyond offers.
Your use-case doesn’t matter — animation video applies to all industries, any company size and any audience— but you need to know who you are creating for, in order to steer your efforts in the direction of e.g. internal e-learning, external marketing initiatives or educational how-to’s.
What it comes down to is this: I don’t want to sell you anything that you cannot benefit from.
That’s simply not how I want to do things. I want you to succeed. And if you are not in a position where the price of the course is well worth it to you, you should probably not enroll.
When you are ready, I’ll be here for you.
How Michelle saved time by investing in online course lessons
Michelle Roberts didn’t expect software training to be entertaining. 1,5 hours and 50+ lessons surely must be boring, but she was delightfully surprised. Now, Michelle uses her new Vyond skills to create her own tutorials for her online massage school. Watch the video below to hear what made Michelle enroll.
How Piercarlo upskilled to meet his employers new demands
Piercarlo Abate didn’t have any experience with Vyond. So, when his employer asked him to start create animations, he needed to get up to speed – and quickly. Piercarlo is an example of how the demand for video skills inside organisations is on the rise, and how you can successfully acquire such skills through online courses. Watch the video below to hear how Go Beyond Vyond helped Piercarlo.
"Thanks for a great overview of Vyond´s possibilities. I liked the practical examples, bite-sized epizodes and your humour. This is how a modern online course should look like."
