NEW YORK, June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Slidely, the social video creation platform, today announced its partnership with Getty Images, the world leader in visual communication, on PROMO, a new and elegant solution for businesses, agencies and marketers. Now any business can create instant, stunning promotional videos for social platforms using the most compelling professional video available. Getty Images is the exclusive content partner at launch, providing PROMO users access to a deep library of nearly two million high quality stock video clips that will ignite their visual communications.

A one-stop video creation platform, PROMO by Slidely fuses video with licensed music and attention-grabbing copy to create instant promos. Businesses can easily find the content they need in the PROMO Collection, where every video is curated and tailored to match specific business categories by video advertising professionals, along with advanced algorithms. Easy customization tools allow users to personalize the videos in minutes - businesses simply add their logos and slogans, and the videos are ready to publish on social media platforms. More major features are rolling out in the coming months.

With over 50 million videos, slideshows, and collages created and well over 300 million views, Slidely has leveraged its expertise in user-friendly content creation to develop this groundbreaking new platform.

"The Social Media world and marketing professionals understand that video is the future of digital advertising and that it takes more than a single video to create impact," said Tom More, founder and CEO of Slidely. "However professional promos have been difficult and expensive to produce - until now. PROMO is an effortless way to generate super engaging promotional videos tailored to your brand in a matter of minutes. PROMO is not just about engaging more eyes; it's about bringing more hearts into your brand's world."

Fully optimized for social media, PROMO allows businesses to ramp up their social campaigns with premium promotional videos on a daily and even hourly basis.

"With social media platforms now a key part of any businesses marketing strategy, it has never been more important to access and use quality content, quickly and effectively," said Peter Orlowsky, VP Business Development at Getty Images. "Our partnership with Slidely on PROMO does just that, combining seamless, easy-to-use technology with the world's leading creative video to allow anyone to create compelling communications."

To celebrate the new partnership, iStock by Getty Images customers will enjoy 50% off their PROMO subscription for three months in a soon to be launched promotion.
